Evalyn at the pool. Uncle Daniel came to help since I can't get in yet.
As most of you know, Jonathan started work this past Thursday. We are very proud of him but also miss having him around. He is working with a lot of ladies that like to cook so maybe I won't worry about him eating well. "It's not glorious accounting" he says. Whatever that is.... Here is what goes through my mind and on facebook.
Me: I put him through school for 2 years and what does he do? Goes off and gets a job and leaves us.
Others: That was the idea, right?
Me: Yep, but all this other stuff was not the idea.
Sound ungrateful, I know. It's just that now, I'm more responsible for house, shopping, cooking, Evalyn, taking care of myself, driving myself to numerous doctors appointments, yet, my state of recovery, well I'm still recovering and will be for a while. I'm still not suppose to clean, such as vaccum, dust, or give into my urge to get out a saw and make my own dang potting shed. Mildly annoying things. I'm still not suppose to deal with poop, but I have no choice about that, I just have to be careful. That includes dog poop. But hey when there is a big pile in front of ya, are ya just going to let it sit there for someone to step in? Nope. Don't forget, I'm still trying to work as much as I can and that is very difficult. I work at night, when I can get a sitter, weekends, and sometimes at 3am. I get stressed out I'm probably over reacting and know that if we obey God and trust him we will be on the right path. No one said this would be easy, this life thing.
We are trying to implement some good habits such as exercise, date nights, saving for another car, continuing to pray and do devotions together, etc. Jonathan has a gym membership now and we are trying to figure out when he is going to go now that he is working. I'm trying to keep going to the free cancer recovery yoga at the hospital on Thursdays because it really makes me feel a lot better. It's work out yoga. We are focusing on our joints right now and I can tell that it is helping with the pain. I'm hopefully going to start a dance class on Monday nights, theater and broadway dance, and would love to be in a local musical one day. I've also been thinking more about Evalyn being around more children since my immune systems is stronger and hers is also. I still have to be very careful though, so I have to talk to the doctor about going to big play groups. We have two new people in our small group who have offered to watch her while I work sometimes and they have two girls, so that may be a good option.
Today is my father in laws birthday. Frank has done so much to help us with cars, remolding our home, repairing things around the house, etc. Without him, we would not have a the much needed fence, the new and wonder kitchen, lights around the house, and so much more. Frank, thank you for all that you do and have done. We love you and hope that you have a happy Happy Birthday!!!
