I finally got to talk to my friend, Amanda, last night. She is doing very well and wants to get things right again. I made sure she understood that we all still love her and accept her and want to help her stay on the right path. You know, David sure did make a lot of mistakes in the Bible, yet God still called him a "Man after My own heart". She is much encouraged and did make it to her new job yesterday. Now if she can just get into her own house away from the belittling parents :)
Yesterday Alexa started preschool at a local church from 8:30-11am on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I am so impressed with how organized and how neat everything looked. I can even drive thru the pick-up area to get her so I don't have to heft Sarah around and go in to get Alexa. She loved it of course and is excited to go back.
I've been sewing Sarah some new dresses from the Sensibility Romantic girls pattern- pretty easy since I modified it, only I made the dresses a little too short. Oh well, she's got the bloomers to wear too. I will have pictures up soon.
I found out my husband will be gone next Mon-Thursday- well of course! Something needed to happen the week of the church feast! Grrrr...I'm not sure how I'm going to do this, but I can't cancel it again. I will not allow myself to even think that. A couple of older ladies at church have offered to help me in whatever way possible, so if I can figure out something they can do than I will take them up on it. Today I am practicing recipes again- this time with the meat (I'm not doing lamb, too hard to find here) and veggies (honey glazed carrots and whole onions) and dessert. (honey cake) I may also make a meal for a friend who had a baby last week.
Busy and more busy...
I plan to create a new daily/weekly schedule soon and post that as well, in time.
Anyways, that's what's going on now.
