BB - 4 (2 dead)
Our poor boy is sick. He has been running a fever, though I couldn't tell you what it is because in all our chaos I can't find a thermometer. But I know it's up there. He has been sluggish all day and has hardly eaten anything. My poor baby. I so enjoy all the cuddles that come with his feeling lousy. He often comes to me and says "Hold you, mama". I love it. Motrin has been doing the trick, but as soon as it wears down, he is a poor sick little guy. Please pray that he would get better quickly. It's so sad when he is sick.
Matt had a better day today, but he has an incentive. Friday night is Men and Boys night at church. He had a blast there last year and REALLY wants to go this week. He knows the rule however. If school is not caught up, no activity. He worked pretty steadily today and will, hopefully, do the same tomorrow. He could be caught up by the end of school tomorrow. The next incentive is the staff retreat. I have had them scheduled as days off, but if he is not caught up he will take work with him. I'll have to figure out other incentives for the rest of the year.
I see the doctor tomorrow for my three month check up with the diabetes. Pray that the numbers are good and that things are in order. I feel terrible as I haven't been able to exercise for weeks. With the living room being torn up and constantly looking for bed bugs and doing things to keep them from invading things, time has been short. I REALLY need to get back to it. As of tonight I have lost a total of 21 pounds. My goal is to lose another 20 by May 8th, my 40th birthday! I can't do that unless I exercise. I'll have to dust the elliptical tomorrow and start using that! I can't wait until the weather gets better and I can take the kids out for a good brisk walk. I finally was able to get a jogging stroller for $10! Someone gave a pretty decent one to the church thrift shop and I snagged it! It is a true answer to prayer as Daniel can't walk around with this one like he does with umbrella strollers. Come spring Matt, Sarah, Daniel and I will be walking EVERYWHERE! I am so excited!
