Update - Sort of!

I haven't been keeping up with my blog! I have been so busy with every day happenings that I haven't had time to sit down or think straight to post something blog-worthy.

Two weeks ago, I was released from my calling as choir director, and called to be a nursery leader. Can I tell you that I'm both releived and sad? I LOVE MUSIC! But it was just too much; every time my then three-month-old would cry out of hunger/need for comfort, I was helpless to do anything but flap my arms in front of the choir. All the women were so amazingly helpful, especially with Lincoln, but I have learned that there is no one like mom, especially when your newborn is hungry! So that was always really stressful for me. I am sad, because I don't really have a musical outlet now, but relieved because I now have a calling where I'm not 'the only one' who can be there. It's a good fit for me, and I am really excited.

I am also SICK!!! Actually, all four of us are. It stinks! Bryan has some sort of sinus infection, both boys have runny noses and coughs (nothing a humidifier can't knock out, they're mostly fussy and inconsolable), and I have major congestion, sinus headache, sneezes and sore throat. NO FUN!!! And the worst part is that I'm the one who has to do the 'nursing back to health'. UGH. I think I need a vacation!

Ending on some good news:

  • Bryan is going back to school (YAY!) so we can finally make millions. lol! We found a local art school that I have been 'suggesting' for a little while, and he is receptive and excited.
  • I got a haircut (pictures to come when I feel human again). It still feels a bit like a wig because it's so different than my last haircut, but I like it.

Once I feel better I'll actually write something more meaningful. But this post will have to do for now!

I think you are getting better though. Tonight you look normal, and you look like you lost more weight, by the way you suck, and that you hair looks so cute! I love it!
