Can I just say that I absolutely hate being in school? I have plenty of homework I should be doing but if I write anything else about assessments or teaching or anything school-related I think I will go crazy! I look forward to the day that I can actually teach again and not just write about it. It is never-ending (okay, that isn't true, it will be over this December but that feels like an eternity away)! And all this complaining I am doing is ridiculous. I have nothing at all to complain about because I chose to do this. I didn't have to. No one made me. I guess I will just have to grin and bare it.
I haven't posted about the house anymore because all of those grandiose things that were supposed to happen didn't. Big shocker! That is what remodeling is all about... over-promises and under-deliverance's. Honestly, I don't really mind since my house works but just doesn't look very good. I can live with that.
I do have a few things on my heart right now. I have a couple of friends going through really rough times and I need to ask you guys to please pray for them. The first is a friend of mine that was in an accident recently where she hit a horse. She fractured 2 vertebrae in her neck and thankfully will heal in time. She also had to have reconstructive surgery on her face and now has a bunch of metal in there. Can I just say that she has the most beautiful face ever to begin with? I think that it will heal back really well - THANKFULLY! She has a lot to be thankful for and she is. The hard part is that she can't drive and has to wear an uncomfortable brace on her neck for 8 weeks. She will be stuck in her house just sitting around for that long. She likes to be up and going and this is killing her! So please pray that the time will go by quickly for her and she will heal up nicely. The second one is a friend with serious infertility issues. I am pretty sure she found out she doesn't have any eggs. She is hurting so badly right now and I ache for her too because I know how much she is longing to have a baby. To find out that there is no chance must be devastating. Please pray that God will ease her pain. So many of our friends are going through these types of issues. The gift of life is an absolute miracle. I hurt for all of my friends who are struggling with this.
Allen will be home on Friday. He has been in Mobile at a meeting and has been having a great time catching up with a lot of old friends from college and the Wynn's. Kaylen and I have been hanging out with Rylie and her parents. We have both really enjoyed that. The girls are playing sooo well together! Anyway, I am ready to have him back home and Kaylen has been missing him as well. This morning she asked if her daddy could blow bubbles with her. She has been asking for him a lot and at night I have been letting her sleep with me and she says she is in daddy's bed.
