Off to a Bad Start

I have been off and on writing different blog posts and I can never finish them to post them so I have decided to start on a new one and sit here until I actually finish it.  This year has not started off very well.

This past week has been really rocky.  Last Friday, I picked Elizabeth up from daycare because her temperature had went from 99.1 to 100.7 in less than 30 minutes.  I wound up taking her to the doctor because by the time I had gotten home, it was 100.9.  They tested her for the flu and RSV and she was negative for both.  They said it was just an Upper Respiratory Infection and to give her Tylenol for her fever.  Well, Saturday she was so lethargic she could barely eat.  Her fever had gotten to 104.7.  The beginning of the day she wasn’t as bad and ate like normal, but her fever was high so I called her doctor.  She said it was fine, to keep giving her Tylenol as prescribed.  Then around 2-3 pm, she was to the point where she didn’t want to wake up to eat and when she would wake up, she would cry.  So we wound up taking her to Fast Pace, where she tested positive for Flu Type A.  They gave her Tamiflu and told us to use Tylenol. Next day she was back to being our happy baby.  Then on Wednesday, she had her four month shots, and she would have cried if she hadn’t lost her voice from all of the coughing she had done the past few days.  It is Sunday now, and she’s so much better.  I’m so happy.

Then Dustin got sick, and he was laid up in bed the whole day he was sick.  I was  hoping I wouldn’t get it, but now I have it.  I don’t have the flu, but I have some kind of congestion funk in my head that won’t go away.  My right ear keeps stopping up and making it where I can’t hear, and my throat has been bothering me really bad.  But, I’m gonna just keep on keeping on.  Can’t let some sickness wear me down.

Our weather this week has been crazy.  It was supposed to snow, and we barely got any.  But it had rained before it snowed, so our vehicles kept getting stuck in the mud in our driveway.  Thursday I actually had to call a towtruck to pull our truck out.  It was such a pain in the butt.

But, I have decided about my New Year’s Resolution.  I know, I know, nobody ever keeps their resolutions and they are normally like “Oh, I’m going to lose weight” or “I’m going to eat better and drink less soda.”  Not me.  Mine is to get closer to God.  I want to show Elizabeth that her mommy and daddy are faithful in the Lord.  I want to be a more Godly wife and mother.  I know it’s going to take a lot of work, and I’m not going to see any changes right away.  But I want to do this.  A lot of things have happened this year that has made me realize how great our Lord is.  Tomorrow I will be starting a new book.  “Becoming the Woman God Wants Me To Be”  and I also have a mom bible study that I am wanting to start soon.  In Sunday School class, we are doing a couples Bible study.  My main focus as of now, though, is to be able to make time everyday for God.  Either in the morning, or after Elizabeth goes to sleep.  I need to figure out what works best for me.  That is always my main problem.

School has also been really rough on me because I am now doing two classes, and one is History, and I am not good at it.  Every assignment from both classes are due on the same day, and because everyone had gotten sick last week, I had to cram to finish my assignments on time.  I’m praying I don’t have to do this again this week.  Tomorrow I plan on working really hard on schoolwork.  I already have the dishes done and bottles washed for tonight, so I’m hoping I won’t have much housework to do.

I want to thank everyone for reading my blog and being patient with me.  I think I am finally starting to get a little better at finding stuff to write about.  I just hope I am keeping you all entertained and you’re not bored reading this.
