Update on Life

Thankfully yesterday Colby began feeling much better. I could tell this because he didn't want to sit in my lap all day or cry too much about the pain. Oh, yeah, and also he wanted to bother his sister & brother again! So, it was like he had to catch up on not being onrie (I have no idea how to spell that word) for two days, it was interesting!

For those I haven't talked to, I went ahead & scheduled my back surgery for August 27th. I now have less than 5 weeks to get ready! I just hope it really helps!

Another anxiety - I have been blessed to be able to have Brigid as a nanny to help with the kids this summer. She is my past piano student, past children & youth choir member at church, my kids babysitter, my friend & now nanny. She is an amazing responsible, positive, helpful individual. I have been able to get many things done this summer, including getting my office at home looking quite normal again. I'm going to work hard on the garage today and hopefully get finished with it next week! My anxiety is that she will only be here 3 or 4 days next week, 1 the following & then she's going on a trip for work with me and the kids - that's it - she has to return to college after that! I know the kids will really miss her.

Isaiah can't say Brigid, so they've come up with an adaptive "Be be." It's quite precious sometimes when Brigid puts him down for a nap, and she leaves in the afternoon, when he wakes up he says, "be be, mama, be be, mama." I guess he's trying all bases to see who will come get him out of bed! I know I will for sure miss her for all of her help & for her friendship. I guess I'll just have to come back down to Earth & get back to normal life!
