February 27, 2012

Today was a good day, and a not so good day. The good part started with having the girls here and up early; full of energy and bringing a happiness that only kids can bring to a home. The day was full of looking for things and then actually finding them and deciding what the next step(s) should be. It also had a bit of a sad side, in that Linda had to go back up to Livermore tonight. The girls really like being around Grandma, and Grandma really likes being around the girls (Grandpa and Jason like having her around too!). We chose not to take the girls to day care today so that they could all spend some time together. The will, however, be going tomorrow, so that we can get a few other things done, including all the appointments Jason has. Speaking of day care, Linda and I went over to a possible day care provider's home, to see if it would be a good place for the girls to go. We had the girls with us, so they could see the place as well, and it gave us a chance to see how they might fit in. We were pleasantly surprised at how well they did fit in, and with the provider. Linda made the comment afterward that it was amazingly fortunate to find a place like that, and on the first try.

We spent a big part of the weekend working on getting the house in order and putting some of the pictures and other things on the walls. I think we still have as many boxes to go through as there originally were at the beginning (before we arrived with the truck load of stuff), its just now there are fewer places to put things. I was hoping to get in some additional ride time on my bike, but it rained so much today that I didn't get a chance to get out. Funny how the weather is going right now. Will all this rain down here its like we got Northern California's weather pattern. A concern is that there might be a drought, but I don't want to be the one who makes that call.

Tomorrow we have several appointments at the hospital. We will be taking the girls to the drop in day care, so they can have some fun and good social time. Jason will be meeting with a few different folks, and then I'll need to get him back to the house to lay back down. My main effort right now, besides getting him to heal is to have in down as much as possible. The good news is that he is very much cooperating with this, as he understands the need as well.

Tonight I told the girls a bedtime story, a short while after dinner, and they were all ready for bed. I told them about Noah and the whale - it was actually a giant fish, but for whatever reason the modern versions tend to talk about a whale. Anyway I told them the story and they liked it almost as much as Jack and the Bean Stalk. I guess I need to work on my Bible stories more... Tomorrow, David and Goliath! Thank you, all for your continued prayers and support.

  1. Happy for the terrific visit for everyone. I hope that Jason's appointments go well tomorrow, also. Sounds like everyone is settling in well in the new dwelling and it's looking like Home Sweet Home. So good for the spirit.

    It has turned cold up here, we're back to winter again AND the weather man says we're actually going to get a little rain. Snowing in the mountains tonight which we need.

    Have a wonderful day tomorrow and know that we're still all praying for continued healing for Jason's wounds.

    All our best,
    Karen & Rob
    Livermore Friends

  2. Continuing to pray!
    Psalms 91:14-15 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
