This morning started with me painting my toenails a bright orange because I decided, it's warm weather and I'm wearing flip flops, so I needed bright toes :) During Sunday School is morning though, I kinked my neck and things began going black. :( So I went and found Uncle Jack to get a quick adjustment before church started, but I was still having problems so I ended up sitting with my eyes closed the rest of morning service trying to not pass out. After lunch I went home and laid down for a quick, short nap that lasted 2 1/2 hours lol When I got up, I was feeling a lot better. My friend Sarah texted me then too and asked me to go on a walk with her so I quickly got ready and went to join her for a 2.5 mile walk. This picture was taken on the bridge we turned around at.
After the walk we went to church where we did nachos and karaoke! Once church was done, Aimee and I still had some energy to burn, so we played a really high energy game of octoball for about 20 minutes. During the game I jammed my elbow though I had to ice it when I got home and now I'm hoping it won't be bothering me tomorrow. In the morning, I've got work all day with the babies and then 2 softball games immediately after work. I haven't decided yet if I want to end my night tomorrow with an hour swimming or not. It all depends on how tired I am.lol I'm hoping to take the babies for a walk sometime tomorrow too so I may have no energy left by the end of the day. :)
In church this morning, my pastor spoke on choosing joy and rejoicing in our sufferings. I'm really learning that I'm not as good at doing these things as I hoped I already was. With my back/neck/stomach and everything else causing problems, I'm getting more frustrated than anything else and I need to work more on choosing joy, even when things are rough. Even though my back/neck/stomach or anything else hurts or is causing me problems, I'm alive, I have an awesome family, the most amazing friends and a roof over my head. My dad used to sing us a song where the chorus says "Cheer up! Things could be worse!" So I'm trying to cheer up and choose joy!
