Grace is sick. :( Her fever is holding steady at 102.4. I hope it's not what Ben had....he threw up all night Sunday night. Mine was far easier...just nausea/lower GI stuff for 2 days. He is only just back on coffee. :( I hope to not be waking up tonight to clean crib sheets, poor baby.
I'm happy about not spending as much money as I thought I did this month, in spite of growing kids needing new clothes for fall. We were even able to fit our contruction loan payment into our monthly "bills" category without pulling from savings. God is so gracious!
I have had to put off making split pea soup because it's Not Rainy Enough. YES!
I squeezed in a NAP today.
I went running FAST today....with a lot less knee pain, thanks to some advice about quadracep stretches from a doctor. Guess they're good for some things. ;)
Thursday I will be spending with a Ukrainian friend over some tea....I love her and her 2 children who exactly imitate her delightful accent.
Date night is coming up Friday, and Ben has something mysterious planned. I heard him say on the phone today, "Do I need to make reservations?" *giggle*
Ground-breaking on our property is (MAYBE) tomorrow??
I introduced contractions (Don't, Can't, Isn't) to Violet in school today. It was not what I consider a successful session. HA! But I will prevail!
I started interval training again yesterday.....and my arms are useless!
I have a baby shower coming up for a friend Sunday, and I get to help with decor. AWESOME. I will post pics.
Ben & I are rooting for Ron Paul in 2012 again. He is ALL OVER REddit. If the internet could vote, it would elect Ron Paul. Resultingly, it is a big goal of mine to read the Constitution again before Christmas. As inspiration.
Also, going to try and bring My Sister's Weddings to Washington state. Long-term-ish.
