I could get used to this warm weather. Gabe’s out running without a mask. No frostbite when taking Ava to the bus stop. Nice.
I meant to give an update on Barb yesterday. Here’s the latest e-mail her brother sent to my MIL. (I mean Janelle–she hates the word MOTHER-IN-LAW.)
Barb is doing better. She is at home and resting and getting used to being back into daily life. She has had no seizures (praise the Lord!) She has vision problems/reading still and has some difficulty remembering things. We are confident that this will improve still to some extent…just have to wait and see. She is still putting her trust in the Lord through it all. I told her she has been such an encouragement to me.
Please keep praying! (Also, the card I sent her at the Cleveland Clinic got sent back to me. Sorry if the same happened to any of you. I’ll try to get her home address.)
The “GetOutOfDebt” campaign is going well. We’re still eating lots of cheap meals, not eating out, and staying away from stores. No debt paid off quite yet, but we’re expecting some chunky checks soon, and with the $ we’ve been saving, a lot can go toward paying stuff off. This is really liberating.
Nina has been killing me lately. I love it when their sense of humor starts really developing. One of her favorite things at the moment is to point to people and call them by the wrong name, then bust up laughing. She calls me “Ava,” calls Gabe “Grandma.” You get the point. Right now, she’s yelling “Mys!” (mize). This is her all-time favorite word to holler at Ava if Ava gets within 5 feet of one of Nina’s birthday presents. We’re working on sharing.
Lots to say (shocker) but duty calls. Happy Tuesday! Do something sweet today!
