Written 5 months ago. Old news now...
I've been catching up on my blog reading , yes at 3am. Once again, a medication change. I'm gonna get through this one. I want to get better. I have fought the doc on this one for years because getting off makes my anxiety worse but staying on it causes symptoms of dementia and I've had lots of changes lately. I can tell a difference in just cutting down on the dosage. Tonight was my first night completely off of it and I am anxious and awake. I really need your prayers to get through this.
(This is from a draft written in April. Since this time, I am off of anxiety medications completely. I have quit The Loft and started a new job as Program Director of an Adult Care Center. All I credit to the grace of God. I would not have ever imagined that I would be doing this at this time in my life. I expected to stay retired, but that is not what God had planned. I am loving my job and look forward to growing with an incredible, well-established small company who still believes in caring for its members first!)
We celebrated my MIL with a surprise birthday party in April. We went home but stayed at a nearby lake. Not having to think about the home place and no longer having a home there made going home easier.
In June, we celebrated Connor's graduation from Pre-K. He started real kindergarten this year and can't be happier. I can't believe class starts each day at 7:15 am. This is ridiculous and hard on a little boy and his family. He seems to be adjusting so all is well.
In July, we celebrated Independence Day with the family and fireworks.
The kiddos loved it and were not scared one bit. We had them all day. That morning, they played under the sprinkler.
We are teaching our babies that you don't need high tech to have fun! All kids need to learn how to play outside and enjoy the little things. They seems to have a good time at BonBon and Grandy's without the need of technology.
Connor learned to ride his bike without training wheels. With all the cheering and applauds, you'd think he was in the World Series. The neighbors were impressed with his family's celebration.
This little girl's personality is a little me. She has us in stitches much of the time with her many faces.
We attended a Nashville Sounds Minor League Baseball game. The kids enjoyed the concessions and all the hoopla. Baseball is about family fun. It's not always about the game when you have little ones. I'd rather watch them anyway.
This kid! Ahh, he's our only boy right now and he knows it!
Our miracle baby is growing up to have quite a personality. Her mommy and daddy are getting ready to try again for another miracle. I hope you'll believe with us.
So, I'm gonna take the first Saturday morning I've had in months to drop by and visit. I think of all of you often and hope all is well.
