My largest cross throughout this whole thing has just been letting go and allowing other people to do my job. Or not do them. It's been having people constantly at our home. I decided to close down last week for a day. It was great! Just to have our home and privacy for a day. We didn't have school and I kept Babycakes busy, if she left and got into anything, the big kiddos got her. Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate everyone who comes to help, but it gets tiring every day and even the kids have broke down and cried and asked if they can leave. The kids have been troopers and helped me a ton.
This is my floor and table after a couple days of no one doing anything. This is something that drives me crazy!! It's been interesting though, I now know what is important to my husband. After his mom left the other day, he completely cleaned up the table and counter. (it was full of clutter) I never realized he liked it clean. Good thing I do too.
Thank you so very much for all your prayers, care packages, cards, meals, and helping me out in any way, it truly has been humbling and amazing at the same time. A woman in my book club organized for someone to bring me a meal every day (except weekends) until May, and she also took care of all my doctor appts, by setting someone to pick me up and drive me for each one! The sacrifices these women make, it just amazes me and means so much to me!
The craft department might not be much this month, as it's been hard to do crafts with the kiddos, I have some things planned, but it takes a lot to get it all together. I did try baking something last weekend, but it ended up taking me literally all day to bake a cake!! SO the themes and craft and baking stuff, is kind of on hold until after I can get around better! (which is killing me!)
I hope to get back here a couple times this week, but it's hard and not very comfortable at the computer with my leg, as I cannot put it up while on the computer. But please remember Good Friday, starts the Divine Mercy Novena, please pray it with me. The graces are so abundant, you will not regret it.
Have a blessed Holy Week everyone!! God bless you!
*Half way there, means, the cast is supposed to be taken off in 3 weeks, I am hoping anyway. I have a leg appt Tuesday and am hoping to be able to start putting partial weight on my leg, (whatever that means) I will be able to drive mid to end of May. Hoping for mid May!
