BLAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH............... GROOOOOOOOOOOAN................. SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGH.....................
Yep, I am NOT feeling very well. FMS has been kicking my rump the past couple of days. I have been having one heck of a flare up! I haven't managed to do much more to the shirt I am making for Colin BUT I did get another Bag of Hope and Love done! A friend stopped by the other day and begged for another bag. LOL She already took one to fill and wanted to do another. :) YAY! I promised I would have one for her tomorrow.
OH!! Speaking of.... I dropped off 10 bags yesterday! YAY!!!! The ladies at the Dept. of Social Services were THRILLED!! WOOO HOOO!!! I hope to have at least 10 more in a couple of weeks. ;) And the lady I spoke with said that we could put Bibles in them! YIPPPEEE!!!
My oldest son, J1, went with me to help carry the Bags of Hope and Love and a small box of school supplies. On the way back we came upon an accident that had just happened. We jumped out the van and ran to see if we could help. It was awful. There was a young lady trapped in her vehicle. It looked as if it had flipped several times before landing on the driver's side. The young lady was unconscious at first. When she came to she started crying for her mother. It was awful. It seemed to take the ambulance FOREVER to get there. She spoke very little English so it was very difficult to get her to remain calm and still until they got there. I managed to pray by the side of the road for her and then several times throughout the day. I can't help but wonder how she is and it has been weighing heavily on my heart. Remember her in your prayers, please.
My friend is still in the hospital with a broken back. Apparently they have found a lump on or near the adrenal gland. She has been keeping her spirits up but it has been tough since that found that. She has to have another MRI to check that out. Keep her in your prayers, too, please.
I have actually been getting some reading done! I am loving "It Takes a Witch" by Heather Blake. I am about halfway through it. I love that Darcy and Harper are new to the village so you are learning about the world right along with them. I can't wait to see what happens. I have NO clue who the murderer is and I LOVE that!!! I want to be surprised! LOL I don't like it when I can figure it out from the beginning. ;)
OOOH! I just found out that Heather Blake is also Heather Webber!!! I <3 her Lucy Valentine series!
I am still no closer to being prepared for the start of school next week! YILES!!! I think what we will do is start off slowly... LOL The first week we will just do the basics, math, language, reading, Bible and possibly some science. I have NEVER been this ill prepared for the school year! Shame on me!!!
I have Pinned several sites that will be helpful with the Cs' Bible lessons! YAY! All free!! :))
For Cailey in science we will be starting off the year with the Young Scientists Club measurements kit. I have a couple of free units Pinned to help supplement.
Deanna has decided to not do lapbooks this year. She said she would rather do unit studies and notebooking. I need to check and see what I have and what I might need.
Cailey on the other hand wants MORE lapbooks! LOL And Colin doesn't want to do any school at all... That's gonna be a toughy. ;) But I think he will change his mind when he sees all the cool kindergarten packs I have Pinned. ;)
Joshua has always been more go with the flow and likes to mix it up. A unit study here, notebooking there with a lapbook thrown in every once in a while. LOL
I think the biggest thing I need to do is get started on the printing... LOTS and LOTS of printing.
Oh, and I reallllllly need to move all my files to flash drives! I have 2 I just need to get busy copying the files. I have way tooooooo many files and it would be a disaster if I lost them. Most of them were free at one point or another but aren't free anymore. Then there are the ones that I bought from Currclick and Hands of a Child.
Meanwhile my list of Want to Sew is getting bigger and bigger.... I WILL get those Packers outfits finished before Wednesday, darn it! LOL Then it's on to some gifts for friends. THEN a few more bags. THEN I will finally get to the dress that has been floating around in my head for the past couple of weeks!! ;) Stick around, I may have a tutorial for the rest of the Packers outfits and definitely one for the dress. ;)
I am still sticking with the D-I-E-T. BLECK! ;) I have managed to lose 5 whole pounds! YAY!! It would probably be more but I have hit that ummm..... hormonal... ummm.... portion of the month...... Yeah... So, all bets are off for the next few days. LOL
