Just a little update

Today was super busy and on top if it my health has been getting worse.

I tried writing how I felt about my health and the post came out so angry, I knew I couldn't share it. Not without frightening you all that is...

So quick updates instead, because it's safer that way.

1. I got new meds from the dr today. I'm hoping they work quickly, because I'm getting so angry about everything, I'm starting to scare small children and our waiters at restaurants (ask me later for that story).

2. I only accomplished two pins today.
- I made muffin pancakes, which were just ok.
- I checked out several chapter books recommend for preschoolers from the library today. Elizabeth is excited!

3. I probably won't get to many pins tomorrow. I have meetings in the morning and will leave after breakfast. That cuts down on pin accomplishing time. However, I've got a recipe to try for breakfast, so mark one off for sure!

4. Evie is slowly getting better. The no dairy diet is going ok. Elizabeth doesn't like the vanilla soy milk though, so she'll be getting regular. We'll see if the almond milk is any better.

That's it for now! I'll check back later.

Playing Catch Up

Hi all!

It's been awhile because of all the craziness that hit us all at once. So today instead of my usual mom post, I'm just going to catch you up on our lives. 

First thank you all for the prayers for both my mom's surgery and with the passing of my uncle. They are very much appreciated. 

My mom ended up having emergency gallbladder surgery.  Originally the doctor thought she had a gallstone that was stuck, instead her gallbladder had developed gangrene and was about to rupture.  So these past few weeks she's been recovering.  The great news is she is doing wonderfully!

Awhile back I asked you all to pray for me as well. Those prayers were also appreciated, as I'm happy to announce that I'm heading back to work.  I'm officially a Assistant Professor of Psychology at one of our local private colleges.

 The absolute great news, is that they are working with this mommy and giving me a flexible schedule.  I'll be doing a lot of work from home, and since they are on a block schedule I'll have whole months when I won't be teaching. A great deal!!

However, with this added job, I'm going to have to change my schedule a bit. During my teaching months, I may be blogging less and less.  So instead of having a formula of doing something each day or so, I'm just going to blog when I can and about whatever is going on in our lives. No planned posts, just fun to share with our friends and family. 

First day of Preschool

Finally, the girls are doing pretty good.  Elizabeth started preschool and is loving it!  She's my little smartie pants, and according to her teacher she has been spending a lot of time in the science center, just like her mommy. She's gotten better at writing her name and comes home singing most days. She's also started ballet and had her first lesson last week.  She was adorable in her little dress and of course she loved dancing.

First Position!

Evie is loving having time with just mommy on Elizabeth's preschool days.  On those days, we go to Kindermusik and Storytime at the library.  However, we've been battling another round of diaper rash.  We thought eliminating citrus solved the problem, however, it is back.  We went to the dr today and have been advised to eliminate dairy for a few days.  After she gets a little better, we can add back cheese, but are to wait on milk.

Doughnut Date on Preschool Day

I'm getting ready for class on my off hours and trying to justify my hours spent on pinterest.  I challenged myself to complete at least one pin on pinterest a day.  Today was my first day, and I did five total!! Here's my five:

1. Mini Frittatas for breakfast
2. Homemade granola bars for the girls' snack
3. Paint your own toast for breakfast
4. Wash your dishwasher
5. Moondough

I'm hoping to log some each day on the blog.  We'll see how it goes.

Well, I suppose I've bored you all enough, hope your week is wonderful!!

Prayers requested

My great-uncle June passed away this morning. He was diagnosed with cancer and had entered hospice awhile ago. In his eighties, he had lived a long while, however, his children still mourn and need the supporting comfort of prayer. So if you pray, please ask for God's comforting presence to fill his family as we celebrate his life tomorrow evening. Thank you.
