A hodgepodge of thoughts

I’m writing, even though I’m not totally sure where this post is going ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s the beauty of a blog, I guess ๐Ÿ™‚ The children are finally quiet in bed, the noisemaker playing the soothing sounds of rain falling, and hubby’s snores are continuous ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s had a week of working almost every night, hauling snow away from parking lots, and streets,ย and it’s caught up to him ๐Ÿ™‚

Today was a good day for me, and I was so happy to attend church! I haven’t been there on a Sunday morning for a few months, and it was refreshing! I can finally say most of my days I feel back to normal ๐Ÿ™‚ I move a bit slow when I get up, but after a few hours, it usually goes well, and I praise God for that!

This pregnancy has definitely been harder on me emotionally. I don’t want to go into too much detail, other than I’ve been diagnosed with a subchorionic hematoma, and it is a stressful thing to have. My restrictions are no heavy lifting, and noย going to the barn, so I’m thankful I canย take care of my family, even though I’mย ready to help outย with milking again.ย I’ve definitely prayed more over this pregnancy than any of my others, because it’s so easy to take a healthy pregnancy for granted. I have an appointment this week, and I am uneasy about it, but I try to cast my worries on God’s shoulders. Because He can handle them ๐Ÿ™‚ I know there are many women that have gone through miscarriage, or still birth, and I don’t want that to be my story. But I also know God’s ways are not ours, and He sees the bigger picture.

The children just went through the 100th day of school, so that’s a milestone ๐Ÿ™‚ They got to enjoy some fun activities, and I appreciate all the effort our teachers put into keeping school exciting for the students. They have highly enjoyed all the snow we received, and loved the days off school ๐Ÿ™‚ This was a blizzard for the record books! I think our area had somewhere around 30 in., so we’ve been seeing white around here yet ๐Ÿ™‚

We had our friends over Sat. night for pizza, and it was good to have company come again ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially when it’s your awesome friends;)

I’m so glad tax time is basically finished for us. I was working on mailing all our 1099’s out last week, and I asked hubby what I get paid for all this ๐Ÿ™‚ I would never make an accountant, for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think I did enough rambling for one post, so I wish you all a lovely week! Be blessed!

  1. I am so sorry to hear of your health issues and will be praying for you. I hope all goes better than you could even imagine at your next appointment, and may God bless you with a healthy baby and smooth delivery. ๐Ÿ™‚
