Went back to see the orthapedic specialist again today. The bend in Nate's spine has worsened even more. Now, they're talking surgery around 3 years old instead of 4 years old. Still trusting God for his healing because I know the God that I serve! Nate is just a ball of happy baby energy and he's got quite a funny personality, too. I am such a blessed mama.
Chase went and broke his arm again last Friday @ a wrestling tournament, so he had to have surgery on Monday afternoon. He'll be having surgery AGAIN in nine months to take the rods out. Poor guy.
Wow, you have so much going on lately! You've moved and people are breaking limbs! Goodness! I will have to stay on top of reading your journal better so I can digest all of your happenings
And just why aren't you updating more, young lady???
I have a nasty sinus infection. I'm so tired right now.
I don't want to complain about this sinus infection. However, it's kicking my butt. Thankfully, the hubs had a snow day from work today. Thankfully, we didn't get the 12 inches of snow they were predicting. We got no more than 8 inches. My day has gone like this: Wake up. Work. Sleep. Wake up. Clean up kool aid mess. Sleep. Wake up. Put together girls' bunk beds. Sleep. Watch church on the Internet. Watch some favorite TV shows. Sleep. I'm hoping Friday I can go to the doc.
And now, I can't really remember why I came on here to post. I think it's time to go back to bed.
Yesterday, I finally went to the doc. I got Mucinex and a great antibiotic. By the end of the day yesterday, I was feeling so much better. Either I've slept so much the past few days or it's a drug reaction, but I just couldn't sleep. I was up until 1:30 last night, which is rare for me. I'm not a night owl. 9:00 p.m., I'm off to bed. It was rather odd. Too bad I didn't have much work or I would've made great time on it.
I picked up another contract for the film industry, which I'm excited about
This weekend, we're off to Dallas to visit Ryan's Bible College pastor and to see his mom. Hopefully, I'll have a chance to meet up with a couple of friends from here on pg.org.
I'm glad that you're feeling better!!! You sound like you're too busy to be sick. ((HUGS))

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Good grief. When you have a family of 9, head lice is a PITA to get rid of! We've been dealing with it since December 17th. Gah. I finally threw out all of our pillows and bought a new carpet cleaner and cleaned beds, car seats, and carpets. We now own stock in Robi Combs and shampoo. Combing out hair for days, and days, and days. Just when I think we're done with it, WHAM! Someone else gets it. I think I may just strike a match soon. Hopefully, this meets the end of this plague. I'm taking Abby and Rach to get shorter hair cuts tomorrow.
This weekend means our tax refund and with it, a second car finally. We're going to try to find the hubs something in the $2,000 range so we don't have another car payment. It also means a few other necessary things like a couch and a storage shed for our house. It also means paying off debts (yay!).
This weekend also marks the father/daughter dance. The girls are so excited. Princess dresses and hairstyling all around. I wish I could be there just to take pictures. My husband can't dance. But it will be fun to see them all dressed up and having time together.
I've gone from famine to feast in the transcription world here lately. I can't remember how many days of working straight I'm on. I think it's around 14. I still have 2 1/2 hours of audio to finish by Friday. I'm ready to get it done and take a few days off. I also got hired this week with a proofing company that's going to expand my income threefold and cut way back on my hours. That's so God. This is just as my husband plans to quit his job mid-March because God's telling him that it's time for him to go into business. A lot for me to pray about, of course, but God did it for me and I know He'll do it for him.
More to share, but gotta get back to work.
I live in fear of getting head lice. Hope you all got rid of it, and hope you can get some rest soon.

My pg.org journal
This really is a year of extraordinary favor upon our lives. We've had a large amount of funds left over for the past couple of months. We just found a very decent second car for an amazing price. My workload is nuts, it's so busy. Being that I have a night off, I've got to crash and catch up on sleep. I'll have to write more later.
