Well, we moved the boys in together yesterday. Still a bit of a strange notion to me as I never shared a room as a child! And it kinda serves as a reminder that my baby is so not that anymore :( :( But anyway, they had a great night! Not a peep out of them till they both woke up at about 6.30am this morning. I hope it all stays good like this!!
The nursery now looks bare again, without a cot in there. But it has me motivated at least. My project this week (and next too maybe) is making curtains for the nursery windows. I'm a curtain virgin (a sewing virgin even) so I'm getting a LOT of guidance from one of the fab girls from SOF, Ali - thanks hun!! She's guided me through how much fabric I'll need (after I went into Spotlight yesterday and realised I really had no idea what I want or need, and hence came back empty-handed), even down to calling her Spotlight and getting quotes for me - what an absolute champ huh!! So I'm really excited (read: nervous!) about making these myself and praying I don't stuff it up! I'm sure it will be a big enough step for me to cut them out! lol... but they are going to look fab if I get them done properly! So watch this space for some pics.
We are bidding on some cots in ebay - hopefully we'll get one for a good price in the next week or so. Would be handy while Greg is still home, but we'll work out a pick-up time if its later next week. Thanks to Sandy (MIL) for buying this so we can have it now (or rather when we win a bid!)
Just want to give a HUGE HUG to my Lusi. I'm so sorry to hear things have been a bit crappy this week hun. Just keep holding on to our Lord ok babe xxx Will try to call you tonight or tomorrow night OK! Hate to hear things are no good - esp when all I'm hung up on is curtains and cots!! Will be praying for you all, and especially little Liji. Love yas xxx
Taking my Eli to the docs again today. He's had a persistent staph infection for about a month now, and for the third round the blisters have started coming back! I just want him better :(. I'm hoping to get some anti-biotics this time. He also has a nasty sore on his nose, which I think may be a staph too, so I just WANT IT GONE!!
Spirit of infection - GO - in the name of Jesus Christ! If you could all pray and rebuke this spirit with me, I would be grateful, thanks xxx
Well, better do the housework and stuff. Another cold (maybe rainy) day around here today - perfect for sewing curtains huh, if I get time. Am off to a friends Hens Party tonight, but can only stay for the pre-drinks due to our finance situation. So might be home to sew (or call my Lus) tonight too.
5 things I'm thankful for today:
* That my boys both slept soundly through the night for their first night together last night
* For glorious rain that we sooo need - thanks Lord! (our grass is actually turning back to green now!)
* For wonderful helpful friends like Ali
* For not working - yay!
* For the Holy Spirit that can heal beyond all measures through the power of Christ Jesus! Amen!
** Edited to add: my little man has SCHOOL SORES!! Geez Louise!! So we're onto a cream for 10 days, and anti-bacterial wash each day too. I feel terrible, but I don't think there was really any way I could have prevented them anyway. Please pray for a quick and full recovery from them... and that Jaidyn doesn't get them too, as they are contagious!!
