Life…

IMG_5650-001

I love the magazine Relevant.  Recently an article that said, “Using technology to build community instead of carefully-curated images of ourselves is an option, and a worthwhile one.”

I definitely love posting a status that generates loads of commits and am the first to delete a photo that makes me look fat, old or ugly.  Living life 10 times zones away from family and friends makes the Internet a priceless necessity…but I want be real, open and share life.  I want live in community…not comparing, but connecting!!!

Sooo, I am going to start sharing my life with you…the good, the bad and even the fat, ugly and wrinkly!!!

Gideon woke-up today fever and rash free!!!  He is still coughing and weak, but overall seems much better!!!  His smile has returned along with his intent to pester his sister!!!  Laying on the couch, I was shocked to see how much he has grown!!!  Please continue to pray for a full recovery, return of strength and energy and protection for the rest of the family!!!

FB~After a great day for Gid, his temp is back to 101.5 and he has a rash {probably from his fever}, is still coughing and has a runny nose. Just taking a shower exhausted him. Please pray for him!!!

Day 3…

IMG_5657

FB~Having a sickie with a high temp for 3 days now is stressful. I do not know how to help him and trying to not be irritated with him. After 3 days of being in my PJs, I had a momentary lapse of sanity and decided to color my hair. I grabbed a random bottle and now have red hair!!! I don't even like a hint of red. This morning sick Gid said...why is your hair red? It looks funny. {I am giving him grace because he is sick.} Emme, trying to be sweet, said, "I love your hair! I have always wanted red hair!" Well, I don't!!! Pray we will know how to help him. 2 of his classmates are also home sick.

Still Sick…

FB~Why is doing noting usually more exhausting than productivity? I have not left the house, showered or gotten out of my PJs since Sunday. All I have done is watch movies, medicate and hydrate my sick boy who still feels horrible!!! Pray all this "fun" will soon end and we can resume productivity!!!

Gid Is Sick…

FB~Home with a sick boy!!! After a momentary scare of him throwing-up then passing out, he seems to be doing a bit better. He has a high temp, cough and sore throat. Pray he gets better soon and does not spread his germs to the rest of us!!! After a weekend of no sleep and lots of fun, I am actually enjoying being home bound for a few days!!!

Looking Forward to SUMMER!!!

Tired of this…

Traffic is horrible!!!  The area around 2 of the 3 bridges off the Island we live on are under construction.  Traffic is being redirected and it takes at least an hour to get off the Island!!!  It is sooo frustrating!!!

Relaxing…
