Today Elijah got his shots again; he got four because three were boosters and one was a new one he needed. I was so surprised – he didn’t even cry for the first one! He just got this look on his face then was okay. He cried for the second, but not too bad. He cried for the third and on through the fourth, getting more upset each time, of course. But then he didn’t cry for very long afterward, and by the time we got home, he was asleep. He slept for about 45 minutes, which was good, but also sucked, because he hadn’t had a decent nap all day. His left eye is red and he keeps trying to rub it, but I don’t think he’s sick. I’m wondering if he’s got some kind of allergy like I think I do – I think I’m allergic to the wood stove. Never coughed straight through winter before I moved here with the wood stove.
Oh Monday was the parade in Festus. It was pretty good. We meet at 5 to get ready for the crowds and then the parade started at 7. We had a table outside the church with free hot chocolate and cookies and coffee – it was pretty popular to say the least.
Yesterday I didn’t do much of anything except things around here. :-)
Ummm…. I am submitting stegenevieve.net to Cyndi’s List… I redid the layout of the whole site today. CSS certainly makes it easy!
grrr – I am trying to place an order with this bookstore and I have a thingy here for money off and it keeps telling me the number on it is invalid. Grrrrrrrr
Went to the high school football state championship game today – Ste. Gen was playing – they lost 35 to 0 (at least, we left with like 4 minutes left) – so that sucked. But it was fun I guess.
So anyway that was today.
Yesterday I just stayed home and we didn’t go out in the evening because Steve went to help Jon clean his deer, etc.
Hope you all had a good one!
In honor of the holiday, I would like to well, give Thanksgiving…
First and foremost, I am thankful for Jesus my Savior. I thank Him for giving me salvation and life and life abundantly.
Secondly I am thankful for Steve and Elijah, I cannot list them one before the other as they are equally special to me.
I am also thankful for all the people in my life, including but not limited to: both of our immediate families, grandparents, great-grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and our special friends, you know who you are.
I am thankful for those that have passed on, that I had the opportunity to know before they died, Grandma D, Grandpa J, C…
Yes, I am also thankful for Rimshot as he brings even more joy to my life.
I am thankful for the roof over my head, be it small and unfinished and usually messy…
I am thankful for the vehicles that get us to where we need to go.
I am thankful for the food that I have to eat every day and the water I have to drink.
I am thankful for the beauty of the earth and the animals and the heavens.
The list goes on and on and if I continued, I would never stop.
Thank you God for all that I have mentioned and the things I have in my mind and the things that I do not even know I am supposed to be thankful for or that I have. Thank you for loving me and keeping me, yes, even a sinner like me.
