A Full Day


My eyes are about ready to close- such a long day it has been. I wanted to post on update on things here and pop in and say hi.


"Hi"!


I had to take Zak in for his pre-op appointment this morning. (Everything went fine and we are ready to go for surgery.)


Got the two little ones into the van, handed out the sandwiches and headed back towards Milwaukee.


Listened to Anna scream a good part of the way - and apple fell down her shirt sleeve - she would not just ignore it; and could not retrieve it. (I was running late for a class I needed to teach - so I would not stop.)


Tried to study the lesson I was teaching amidst Anna's fussiness and Zak's snoring.


Got to the church in enough time to run to the bathroom before we had any accidents.(If you were thinking I was talking about the two little ones you were wrong - they were both sound asleep in their seats. It was 'I' who was running.) ;)


Copied the handouts to my class. Deposited my children with a designated college student - chosen to watch them while I taught.


Whispered a heart felt prayer for the college student and headed to class.


Taught on submission and reverence in the marriage relationship. Found myself under conviction. Identified selfishness as the reason I fail so many times in being the godly wife I should be!


Whispered a prayer to God to make me what I need to be to honour and glorify Him.


Picked my children up at their doors for pick up. Looked all over the place for Zak and Anna. Breathed a sigh of relief as I saw Rachel coming out the door with them. (A sigh of relief for the poor college student who had them extra time. :)


Listened to the children as they talked about their day.


Prepped for dinner. Found myself thankful for the crock pot meal ready for the family when we walked home.


Thought my husband looked especially handsome in his sweater and dockers.


Ate dinner with the family. Enjoyed family devotions. Found myself so thankful for all that God has given us.


Got the little ones ready for bed. Packed Zak's suitcase for the hospital tomorrow.


Checked homework. Went over spelling words, reviewed the water cycle.


Wondered if the older kids would ever get to bed.


Packed the next days lunches with Rob. Had a piece of leftover pie with Rob. Laughed about how funny the kids are.


Checked my mail and wrote this post.


Now, I will head for bed. Tomorrow starts at 3:45 am. Zak's surgery is scheduled for 8:00.


Never a dull moment; but I would not trade one single day.


Thanks for stopping by - I am so glad you did.


Blessings,

Martie

Busy days... but it sounds like yours was profitable.

I'll be reading on to see what this surgery is all about.
I have been too busy to visit even my most favorite of blogs most days.

But, here is to slowing down for a bit!

Blessings,

Persuaded,

I wish we would get some snow!! It has been nice to go through all of November without a coat; but I am ready for some snow!
