Hey peeps. I'm sorry we haven't talked in a few days. With spending so much time at the hospital and dealing with a little one not feeling so good, it's been taking it's toll. I am happy to say that for the past two days Elly has been doing a lot better though. She has lost several pounds due to not wanting to eat. She told a lady at the hospital today, "her bones were skinny, and they were hangin' out." Maybe it could be a new fad, get your tonsils removed and drop 10 pounds.
Well, as women, there are a few phrases we hear in life that cause our blood to run cold.
1) "We can only stay three weeks".....from your MIL standing at the door. (I first typed "stanking" at the door, this was a typ-o, but take it as you will...
2) "Is there another credit card you would like to try?"
3) "We are out of chocolate"
3) My personal favorite,,,, "could you say a few words?" We just don't like to stand before our peers and speak on a topic. I have gotten a bit less nervous about this over the years, but eloquent I am not. Maybe I should join Marcus in his classes. I say all of this because I had to give a testimony at our Church tonight for our Women's Ministry. I was not nearly as handicapped with nerves as I spent the afternoon thinking I would be, oh the power of prayer.
We managed to get home from the hospital in enough time for us to watch Alabama beat Georgia. ROLL TIDE. Although I must say I was so proud of that GA coach praying with his team after they lost, I could hardly keep from tearing up. It almost made me wish they had tied or something. Every time those AL boys score, my husband comes up out of his seat and takes on like he's really there. And don't let 'em mess up. He yells, and fusses like one of our kids just spilled chocolate ice cream all over the back seat of the car. I don't recall ever watching Rachel Ray and yelling at her for using too much salt, or over mixing the batter. Maybe I'm missing something.
