So frustrating...

..when you are in excruciating pain, but have to go about you daily routine. Your kids just don't get what's up and try as I might to not yell, sometimes it slips out. I just want them to settle down and fall asleep so I can go to bed b/c my back hurts so bad. I know I should make an appt for tomorrow, but the really sad thing is I can almost tell you verbatim what they will say and do and give me tomorrow if I do. sigh. I HATE this clinic.

Hmmm...this word hs given me issues. Bein submissive to me is one thing, being a doormat is another. But I had a friend point out today, the bible doesn't say be submissive if you want to or set specific limitations. It just said to do it...regardless what is asked of you. I struggle with this. Being "in charge" for so long with the kids while the hubs is gone here and there due to the military...its difficult to give up that control once he is back home. But there is also the attitude that is behind it. Is my attitude "FINE! I'll do it" or is it truely done with a humble heart? This is definately a great area of struggle for me.

I can't believe the heat! We broke over 100 today. The heat index was 110!! Makes me VERY thankful for air conditioning that WORKS. We were able to go to the pool today after a bit of not going. The girls had a good time, but because it was so hot today the water was like bath water...even at 3pm. BLECK! But at least Bethany can quit complaining at me that we NEVER go swimming

Interesting note. I was looking back over my blog. Noticing that over the past year...I've made exactly 5 posts. Eek. It looks like I've made like one every 6 months. Been a busy year. I guess I just figure that people don't want to hear every annoying thought that I have...but also...its not like I am using this to update people either. I mean seriously? How many people even READ my blog? Probably no one.

Time Flies

...and just seems to get away from you. Everytime I blink it seems like 6 months have flown by. Spring has already come and gone and summer is in full swing...once of the hottest ones on record. We've been broiling here. I want to take the girls swimming more, we've just been SO busy. June was CRAZY and July hasn't been much better so far. I am hoping now that VBS is over that things will settle for a little bit before school starts up again. Just some slight down time with the regular stuff going on instead of a lot of craziness.
