Today was to be a quiet day and I guess in a way it was, but it sure had its moments of racing to get places! I was able to sleep in without an alarm clock for the first time in too many days so was up and at 'em around 8. I drove over to Bed, Bath & Beyond about 10 to find a cherry pitter as I had to deal with 18 lb. of sweet cherries that I brought home Saturday from Bountiful Baskets. Maegann was a great help and we had them done in an hour. That's when the racing began. Had 30 minutes to figure out lunch and get out the door for her counseling appointment. I never did get time to eat and then took my lunch meds about 2:30 when we got home. Only had a few minutes because I needed to be at the learning center at 3 and it takes about 25 minutes to get there. I made it just in time! Tim met me there and that was nice so we were both hearing the results firsthand. The results did show why Maegann struggles with math and confirmed I'm on the right path with the new curriculum we are going to use this year. The interesting thing on Isaac's was how fast he processes auditory info and how well he hears it. It works against him though because of his lack of focus. This evening after supper I had time to do some co-op work which was needed with some people from the waiting list. If these two families join my work will be done as we're full.
Tomorrow I will begin the day at the doc's for my third IV treatment. The only other thing on the schedule is taking Isaac to his speech group at 3:15.
BL Challenge - Team Emerald: Tomorrow is the week 5 weigh-in for our team. Can't believe we're already halfway through! Not sure where the scale will land for me in the morning as it has been so different with these IV treatments.
Gym Time: I heard back from both the Rec Center and my current gym this afternoon. I could easily get our paid worker in for free with Isaac if we were members. My contract goes month-to-month instead of annual the first part of November. The biggest negative is the distance and knowing I would not go on my own as easily. Even the hubby agrees that may be the deal breaker. A couple other things on the "con side" are that I know I'd still keep an eye on the kids which means my time would be interrupted. Will keep working on it, but now I know I can't make any changes until November.
Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)
If we know by faith that god is with us, we can take on any challenge with confidence and courage. We may not always feel God's presence, but we can trust His Word and remember that he said he would never leave us or forsake us.
Are you tempted to be afraid when you see the awesome responsibility God has given you? I encourage you not to run, but to stand firm, trusting God because He is with you.
(Excerpt: "Trusting God Day by Day" by Joyce Meyer)
