Hi Ladies…a day late again which is slightly hilarious because I called out of work yesterday due my back being out so I totally should have made the time to get this out. Instead I spent most of the day catching up on your blogs and watch Gilmore Girls (again). Onto my favorite things that happened this week:
We got a new boat!
Well, new to us anyways. I think the guy was trying to sell it for $3000 ish and J talked him down to $2000 due to something not working on it. He got home and managed to fix the problem within like 10 minutes or so. I will seriously stop teasing him about his you tube videos now. That man is so darn handy and even though I sometimes get irritated that he doesn’t just let me call someone to just get it done, he really does save us a ton of money! I don’t have a pic of the boat yet, but I guess they took it out the other night on the nearby lake while I was at an event and it ran well.
L tried soccer for the first time!
L did a week long soccer clinic this week. Of course, the weather was rainy and chilly all week and she now has a cold, but it was fun to watch her try something new. She did great during the first 20 minute game this morning, but quickly lost energy and focus due to the freezing cold here today and the cold that she came down with. I also got to catch up with some of the other Moms I knew including one of my old daycare Moms that I totally miss so that was nice.
I did a Young Living event!
Thursday night my Sis and I headed to my Chiropractor’s office for a Ladies Night Out event and got to chat oils for a few hours with some wonderful ladies. I love hanging out with my Sissy so the night would have been fun no matter what! Unfortunately, a not so favorite thing that happened this week was when the event was over, I was kneeling down on the floor packing my bags and when I went to get up, I couldn’t move. My back was officially out and it was oh so painful!!! Thank God I was at my chiro’s office when this happened so once everyone cleared out and they got the exam rooms back together, he adjusted me. I was hurting big time though and could barely walk so I called out of work on Friday and went in for another adjustment and just spent the day resting until L and J got home from school. I would say I’m 95% back to normal though now and so thankful that my chiro is also a good friend and daycare parent because he totally texted me this morning to check on me. Very sweet of him!
Other than that, I made it to Eupraxia 3 days this week. Monday morning I woke up at 3:30 with those fun, excruciating endo cramps and I was still hurting a bit at 5:30am so I didn’t get up and go and then of course J ended up going to look at the boat we got that night so I couldn’t go to an evening class neither because L had soccer. Friday morning I could barely move so it didn’t happen again. 😦 I am going to try and go Monday night and just ask for some modifications so I don’t over do it with my back still not totally strong.
We also currently are doing respite care for that possible placement but by the end of last night, we knew already that it won’t be a good fit. She will be going into middle school next year and her needs are pretty high. With J coaching most of the school year, I’m just not going to have the time and attention to give her and L. Especially because we have no idea if we’ll end up with L’s baby sibling at some point. We also have no clue how L is going to react when the baby is actually born, especially if baby stays with BM and H while L is still with us. I can tell L is having a hard time with having her here too, part of it may be she’s just not feeling well, but they are very different in what they enjoy doing and although M is very immature and doesn’t always say or do appropriate things, she also tries to mother L and I don’t think L is really liking that too much. I think L would do better with someone much closer to her age or younger if we took in more placements.
Alright, sorry for no pics this week! Kind of a boring update but that’s what went down in our household this week. I hope y’all have a great weekend!
Lots of Love~Dawn
