Mother's Day, Doctors, Graduation, & Floors

Mother's Day was great despite being sick. Every year, I pick 2-3 pieces of the kids' artwork they made in school over the past year and from those, TJ has one piece framed from each child as their gift to me. We hang them in our playroom and it is a cute way for me to see the progress each has made from year to year. TJ's gift to me was a gift certificate for a pampering session at a local spa, which I am very excited to use! We also went out to dinner to my favorite Japanese hibachi steakhouse, and although Ta was a little frightened (until he realized TJ and the chef were friends), we had a fun time and the food was excellent.

I caved and went to the doctor last night. I’ve had a cold for a while (tomorrow will be 2 weeks) and last Friday my ear started bothering me. I was trying to hold off on going to the doctor because I have doctor's appointments scheduled on both Thursday and Friday. But, I’m glad I went because I have an ear infection, and it actually hurts worse today than it did yesterday. I can tell there is fluid built up because everything sounds muted in my left ear. It’s a strange sensation! I am on an oral antibiotic so hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.

I am very excited about Friday. I have an ultrasound scheduled, and I think TJ and I agreed to find out what we’re having but NOT tell ANYONE so don’t ask! :) I really wanted the suspense of not knowing, but TJ wants to find out, so this is our compromise.

Friday is also Th’s preschool graduation. Along with a few other family members, TJ and I will be there, and we wouldn’t miss it for the world! This is an important milestone in his life and I am glad some will be there to share it with us. I just can’t believe my baby is entering kindergarten in the fall- where has the time gone?

My sis came back this evening, and on the way home from the airport we made a trip to the store to buy hardwood flooring for our entire first floor. We had to use her truck to haul it back home- we bought a 1/2 ton worth of flooring! I am ecstatic as this will dramatically change the look of our house and help us to sell it in the future. I can't wait for TJ to install it- hopefully it will be soon!

I think that's enough of an update for now. I am going to work on a mural for Vacation Bible School. I am teaching the 3rd/4th grade boys, and I have all kinds of fun things planned for the kids. I am thankful for the flexibility that the VBS director gives the teachers- it allows my creativity to shine in order to share the gospel of Christ.

*I am thankful for my husband, children, doctors, medicine, extended family members, the kids' preschool, and VBS- they have all impacted me in some way.*

Sorry you are sick! I'll be praying for a speeding recovery!

And wood floors are amazing! We are going to orders ours hopefully within the next month. I have to decide on a color though. We are putting them in our kitchen. We have original hardwoods in the two guest bedrooms that one day we will refinish.

I love home remodeling projects! Take pictures when it's done!

Hope you feel better soon....
