Changes, Again...

Sometimes changes in our plans are hard to accept. This year has been full of surprises. Many people going through difficult circumstances and the loss of loved ones. To me, being required to change our plans seems minor, in comparison to losing a loved one. Due to unforseen circumstances, we will be postponing our vacation. That means that I get to choose two new things to complete before I turn 30. I'm really hoping there's not a rulebook out there for 30 x 30 lists. I'm pretty sure I've broken the rules, if there is one:). So, I'm going to change the "visit O.H." to "sleep in a tent with the kids". Totally not the same thing, but we all have to adjust, right? The second one, "visit my Grandpa" is a hard one to give up, but needs one to replace it. Maybe I could find someone that could do a video of us, that we could send to him to watch. He doesn't want to have anything to do with the computer, which rules out Skype:(. I'd like there to be some way of him seeing all of us as a family, other than pictures. Will have to think on that one a bit more.

Other than that, it was a fairly good day. I have a bit of a sore throat. Adelaide had her first cold, but it only lasted from Mon-Wednesday. Today she was all better. We had a playdate with a friend from church and I took Garrison, Kiersten and Adelaide with me. They did really well, until the little boy declared that he was keeping Addie. He said that he loved her and that she was his baby now. Kiersten got into an argument with him and they went back and forth until I told them that it was time to go and I needed to put Addie in her car seat. She was smiling for most of it:). This little boy is only 3, so I don't blame him for feeling the way he does:) Addie is very cute and lovable and we're thankful we have the opportunity to hug and kiss her all day long:).

The weather was warmer today and tomorrow it's supposed to be around +10. Scott will be finishing up the painting at the church in the nursery and I look forward to taking pictures. Hopefully the door will come in soon and we won't have to use the baby gate anymore. Just a couple more potlucks and afternoon services until we switch off our winter schedule. That also means that the Goffs will be coming back from Arizona soon. Yeah!!! Looking forward to seeing them AND singing with a piano again.

It's almost 10 here, I'd better get to bed. I could use the extra rest and hopefully I'll be back to normal before Sunday. Enjoy the weekend!


  1. I'm sorry that you won't be able to take your vacation. I know how disappointing that can be.

  2. I was sad to hear that you wouldn't be coming down on vacation, but then I thought that maybe the Lord is holding this off for one of these days when I finally do get hitched so you can come down for that...of course that's a long time in coming in my mind...but that was my thought;)
