In my life this week…

Special Man is back!!!!!!  This has made for a great week, no matter what else happened.  He came home on Monday night.  The flight landed early – yay!!!  But customs took 2 hours to get through – :(.  It was like an anticlimax.  2 weeks of waiting, then the excitement of thinking he will be out soon, then the very long dragged out “is he ever going to come out the door” feeling.

We have this family saying, that no matter where we are Special Man will always be the last one to leave.  It happens regularly at church – we are the last to leave.  Well there were 30 people from our church who went to the fly and build and yep, you guessed it, Special Man was the last one out of customs :). 

Since he has come back, life is now more normal again.  You can almost taste the peacefulness that has decended.  We have spent the week enjoying each other’s company.

Despite it’s ups and downs – this week has been a good week!! 

In our homeschool this week…

We are currently still on holidays, so homeschool is on hold.  I should have been planning our next unit of work, but that is what the weekend will be for.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

We spent Easter with my parents.  We saw my brother and sister and the kids had a chance to play with their cousins.  It was a great weekend.  My mum spoiled us rotten.  The joy of the days made up for the nightmare of the nights.  Special Son is still suffering from a nasty cough, so the night season is quite busy.  On our last night, very early in the morning, not long after I had gone back to the sleep from a visit to Special Son, I hear this cry from Princess Curly Tops – “My bed is broken and my pillow has gone all soft”.  She had managed to roll into the crack between her bed and Princess Joy Bug’s bed and was laying on the pillow that my mum had placed in there just incase she did fall out.  It was quite funny (in hindsight).  It did however wake up the other two and our very early morning began!

My favorite thing this week was…

Heading out to two night meetings at church.  Even though these were just planning meetings, the people on the committee are full of fun and we have laughed our way through all of the decisions.  Very joyful.

What’s working/not working for us…

Holidays are working great :), may there be more of them :).

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

I am hoping to include piano lessons for my kids this term.  Just wondering how/when you guys schedule this in – both the lesson and the practice sessions?

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

I have started a couple of blog hops myself – they are very much at the beginning stage, so I would really love you to help me get them off the ground.  The links are below.  Please check them out and link up!!

My waking thoughts were…

“My legs are aching!” 

It was so bad it woke me up.  Don’t worry – Special Man to the rescue, he came and massaged them back to normality.  What a man!!!

The first thing I did today was…

Chat and chat and chat to Special man.  This was only his second morning home after two weeks away.  It was so nice to be able to spend a little face to face time together.

Today I wished I hadn’t…

Welcomed the day in at midnight.  Special Son is suffering with a nasty bought of bronchitis at the moment and so spent most of the night coughing up a lung.  Poor little guy.  Subsequently we got to see quite a lot of each other during the night season.

It’s amazing – just when you think you just cannot get up again, you manage to pull yourself out from under the covers to rescue the needy.  It’s at times like this I look around for the mother, and realise (with a sigh) that the mother is me!!!

Today I most needed God when…

I was out at a meeting.  It was nice to pause and hear His voice guiding my input.  I tend to be very impulsive and sometimes say things I regret later, but tonight I sensed God’s presence in a special way and there were times that I paused to ask Him when I should speak.  I enjoyed His guidance!

Today’s special moment…

Going out with just Special Son and me.  With three kids and a very busy husband these sort of events don’t happen very often, but today Special Son and I got to enjoy each other’s company for 2 uninterrupted hours (during daylight, which is always a good thing :)).  After we left the chemist, we walked arm in arm back to the car – it is a moment I will cherish forever!!

5 things I accomplished today…

  • Made spinach and “cheese” sausage rolls using unleavened bread as the pastry – they were yummy
  • Took Special Son to the doctor
  • Thought through various roles for the nominating committee report
  • Finally posted out an order (sorry patient customer)
  • Went out by myself to a meeting at night

A photo from today…

Although this photo wasn’t taken today, I discovered it today. It is of my Special man welding over at the Solomons – spot the dry spot.

My thought for today…

Prayer is not asking for what you think you want, but asking to be changed in ways you can’t imagine
