It's been so long!! I've been slammed from every direction & yea... MIA, sorry.
Here's the cliffnotes...
Baby Joee turned 1. I missed the party bc of work. Story of my life, but I did send her another handmade owl.
Grandaddy passed away, but it was truly a blessing because he was suffering so much toward the end. He's not in pain anymore. God was gracious enough to let me see him for the last time on a day when he was fully coherent. We sat and visited for about an hour 2 days before he passed. The week leading up to it, he didn't recognize anyone & mostly slept. I was glad we got that last day.
My sister filed for divorce today! The trial for her (soon to be ex-) husband was last week. My niece was able to testify & is now the youngest person (3) in the state to have ever testified. He was found guilty of all 18 counts. They upped the charges to Aggravated child rape, so he's looking at minimum of 25 years per count.
God answers prayers... DH went from being furious over me going to church & "Taking away from family time" to going with me... to now going even when I can't make it! Our relationship is SO much better now that we're both focused on being the spouse God calls us to be. Braden is doing a lot better, too, because we're both more involved in his life.
TTC is still on hold, but after keeping my sister's two girls AND B last week during the trial, I realized that God's going to have to take my anxiety in his hands before he gives me another child. I literally collapsed by the time the girls went home.
Oh! Speaking of anxiety. I have an appointment on Monday to be tested for ADD. I am convinced that if I can get that under control, a large chunk of my anxiety will be put to rest.
Hope everyone is doing well. I'm going to get caught up on some of the more recent posts.
I'm ready to climb the walls, too, buddy.<a href="http://s124.photobucket.com/albums/p2/thcity/Mobile Uploads/?action=view
