We really appreciate it!
First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for their support and prayers. I really think it helps, and I am not just saying that. Second, I want to give everyone a quick update, Jo is still with us this week and it looks like she will be with us until Sunday. After that, we will only have her from Friday to Sunday, and I don’t know how long that will last. We are struggling between what is best for Jo, and what we can stand emotionally. I know I have felt spent the last week, physically, mentally and spiritually. Just flat wore out, as they say back in Tra’s home town, and I am hoping for a renewal this weekend.
Third, and I hate to harp on this because I know everyone is busy, believe me, but it seems that we have hit an extremely busy portion of our year. As you have seen, Dorian started basketball with practices every day at different times just to make it fun, I am coaching Ben’s basketball team with practices, and then games at least twice a week, Alli, Olivia, and Kassie are all doing dance, two high school classes every day, therapy, Dr. appointments….. just like everyone else. Oh and to top it off, Tra got a flat on her brand new tire, a blow out on the sidewall, so she has been driving the van, all 11 miles per gallon of it.
So today I left for work at 0630, after trading for an hour and 1/2, then got home at 4:30, took Livy straight to dance by 4:50, went and coached Ben’s game at 5:30, drove 20 miles from there to Nikiski to watch the end of Dorian’s game, drove 40 minutes home from his game to eat from 8:20 to 8:35, left home and went to dance and picked up Alli and Chloe, drove Chloe home, came home with Alli and did stock research till now, 10 pm.
Without complaining, I just haven’t had time to work on doing a good family post and I feel bad. Pretty much every day this week has been like this, and maybe it is a good thing. Maybe it helps keep my mind occupied, but man I am just plumb drained this week. To make matters worse, we have noticed a change in Jo, and we think she senses something is going on, so please continue to pray for her. Tomorrow, Friday, I think I will have some time to do a good post, no basketball games, just dance, school, practice and getting a tire replaced.
So now that I have bummed you out, I will include a video I found particularly funny. Of course that doesn’t mean anything because, as many of you already know, I have a particularly sick sense of humor. I really, really get a kick out of the cameraman, the fact that he is laughing just slays me, because, as ashamed as I am to admit it, that would’ve probably been me.
