lately i am behind on everything. lately there is still illness in the house. lately i feel overwhelmed, sad & just really want to pull the covers over my head & wish the badness, sadness, ickiness to go away.

he was her faithful companion for the last 14 years & sadly he had cancer & she had to put him down. she is devastated & i understand it. i cant make it better, but i hope i can ease her pain to know we are hurting with her. anyway, i found this pattern of an easy quilt on a new website of which i am addicted; http://www.pinterest.com/ . if you havent joined, you should. there are tons of ideas for clothing, gifts, recipes, crafts, photography. it's a bunch of blogs all in one sight.
anyway, this is the type of quilt i will be making. you can find the pattern & tutorial on the blog: firstname.lastname@example.org
my sister lisa & her 2 daughters (olivia & emily) are facing the 10th anniversary of Jim's death - her husband/their father. words just cant even begin to help anyone. but we are thinking of them. Jim was a good guy. he loved lisa & pretty much did whatever she wanted. (i love that in a man....i seriously do. he knows what is important - to make his woman happy - & only puts his foot down when he really feels strong about it - & Jim did do that on occasion but mostly he just went with the flow). he loved his girls. he loved to laugh. he loved a good joke. he is tremendously missed. my biggest regret is that i never showed jim the respect he deserved in this life. it's amazing to me the clarity we have when it's too late. hindsight is 20/20. the following video comes to mind when i think of jim. go rest high on that mountain, Jim. we love you & you are missed. (remember to pause the songs at the bottom to listen to this video)
also abigail is sick...way sick. she has the croup & it is scary. she coughs to the point that she cant breath. it scares me to death. she is on an oral steriod. she is on round the clock breathing treatments. i put her in a steamy bathroom after her breathing treatment because i got scared of her coughing so badly. she has been throwing up tonight - after her breathing treatment. i hate when you are so sick that the albuterol does that. i wish i could take it all for her - the illness. i hate my babies being sick. she handles it well. i gave her motrin to help her sleep. when she sleeps she doesnt cough. she is sound asleep now. this started the day (Monday) she received her blackbelt in the little dragons glass at karate. i was very impressed with what she had learned. she will start taking the beginners - orange belt class in the adult karate class next week. and come december she will belt test into the orange belt. so she will basically be 6 belts away from her black belt. (it's a 9 belt total timeframe to black belt if that helps explain where she is in regards to the adult class). anyway i'm impressed.
abigail with sensei lucas.
and for the record i am sick also. i slept until 3:30PM this afternoon. we were suppose to go down south today but it didnt happen. oh & i also joined weight watchers 1 1/2 weeks ago. it's going ok. i refuse to spend my 40's fat.
anyway, please continue to pray for us.
