I think life is settling down, maybe

February 21, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

Things have been crazy since December and I think they’re starting to settle down, but I’m really not sure.

While I love having my sweet hubby home, sometimes him being around 24/7 is a bit nerve wracking. I think sometimes there’s a such thing as “too much time together,” ya know? It seems, since he’s been home, I haven’t been writing as much as I should and I’m getting behind in meeting deadlines. That HAS to change – if I want to get paid.

My oldest son, who isn’t even 13 yet, has sleep apnea. We went to the doctor who scheduled a sleep study. Apparently he’s stopping breathing 60.8 times per hour while sleeping! And his oxygen level drops to 82%! So, even though he doesn’t like the thought (Mama and Daddy don’t really, either), he’s now using a CPAP machine. I’m hoping and praying that this will help him and keep him around for a lot longer.

My youngest turned 9 last month and he thinks he’s big stuff now. It’s amazing how being a specific age can make you feel differently. I remember as I was growing up that I couldn’t wait to reach 13 because I’d be a teenager, 15 so I could date, 16 – well, most kids learn how to drive then but not me, 21 so I could drink but then didn’t, etc. Now that I’m considerably older than 21 I wish I could go back to that age.

I keep trying to tell my kids to enjoy life where they are now; they’ll get to that “age” soon enough. Isn’t it funny, we want so much to be something more than we are, but when we reach that “whatever it is” thing we wanted so desperately, it never meets with our expectations. I guess that’s where Solomon finally realized that everything was vanity and that the best we should hope to attain is to have a relationship with the Father and thank Him for each day we area allowed to live. I know, what’s up with me being so philosophical. Who knows? Maybe I’m finally growing up – HA!!

Well, I have a ton of writing to do for a deadline that’s soon approaching. It had been a while since I wrote so I thought I’d do that. I hope everyone has a great day today!

    Having the family around seems great – until you have the family around. :D Good luck with that!

    I try to teach my kids that it is just as much about the journey as it is the destination. Enjoy where you are on the way to where you are going!
