Well I don't know about Robyn but I was starting to feel a little stressed/down and out by the time Sunday came around. Finances weren't where I wanted them due to some questions around my hours and my cutting back on overtime outside of the shop because of it, I wasn't sleeping, it just sucked.

Monday morning on his way to the office Pastor Steve droped by, gave me our book for the study we're doing in small group and gave me a card from the group to "help us out with the airfare." I could have kissed him, altho I don't think it would have been apretiated, I was tempted to atleast hug him but I wasn't sure how that would go over either. It was such an amazing gift for us, I was to the point of wondering how I was getting to work today as I didn't have gas in the car, nor money to put it there. I'm not normally one to advocate monetary gifts but in this case it was such a blessing.

Today I was still bummed, finances were better, but I still felt down until I talked with my co-worker Paul. Paul and I have this weird relationship, he's like a older version of me who's gone through all the pains that I have/do and all the self-destructive parts of my personality. He knew exactly what I needed to hear as per usual but didn't have the words so off he went to find them (lyrics from a song.) Here it is, may not mean anything to anyone else, but then again it might it sure did to me.

"The sign said everybody welcome, come, kneel down and pray
But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all,
I didn't have a penny to pay, so I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign
I said thank you Lord for thinking about me, I'm alive and doing fine"

What really hit me most of all was I'm alive and doing fine. As much as I dwell on and get upset over the littlest things, I have to remember and be thankful to God that I'm alive and doing fine.

Well we went and bought ourselves a water cooler. Whe Tic and I were in Kenora, he seemed to drink a lot of water from one, so we thought we might as well get one. Maybe he will drink more, and stop having issues....
However.. after we got the cooler out of the box, and were setting it up, this is what we turned around to see.

Later that day we had some great visitors! Dano made it to Southern Ontario!! YAYAYA
Taylor and Dano have been friends for a very long time. I am so glad that they were able to get together! Thanks Kim and Neal for bringing Dano here!

Yes, they do get very silly when they are together!
Hugs to Dano! We sure miss you buddy!!

Some of our news

Ok, it has been a long few weeks. I am sure there is light at the end of the road.
Here are a few of our happenings the past while.

So, if this little one wasn't around, I don't know where I would be! This is Rylan, Sophie's wee one. They have been here off and on the past while. I am so happy to see Rylan grow, learn so many new things, and spit his food back at you! He has kept me going. I love his smile. It seems to always calm me down.

My trial cake. Thank you Taylor for taking the picture. Well I thought that before we have company over, and I make all this stuff for St. Paddy's day, I had best try decorating the cake and make sure I can get it out of the pan. SO.... getting it out of the pan, not such an easy thing to do. Got it out, without any major problems. We left it in the oven covered overnight. No worries right.... wrong! Here I go to ice the cake... nice white butter icing... mmmm tastes great.... however... not really covering the cake.. the cake is crumbling.. it is way to moist! It kept coming through. Oh well! It looks like confedie icing! I had a blast with the green icing. In the end, it had more then just the outside edge done. I played with a few ideas for next week. I am not letting you in on those yet. I will show you when it is done!

So, not a great picture, but better then nothing. This is Taylor's lip. He had a bit of an insident at school on Monday. He and another boy were playing in the school yard at lunch, and.. I got a call saying that Taylor needed to be picked up from school. I got there, and couldn't believe the blood. They had ice on his lip, and he looked like heck. We talked to the VP, and got a few issues figured out. I brought him home, and he hung out on the couch most of the day.
I went to look at his lip after about an hour or so, and got a bit worried. His lip looked bad, but his gums were worse. Right where his front adult tooth should be coming in, there was a nice size laseration. I got worried about that, because when it comes to adult teeth who wants to mess around with that.
Jason and I took him to the dentist Tuesday morning, and the dentist was good. He isn't worried about the laseration, as he said it should heal well on its own, and he doesn't think the adult tooth will be effected in any way.

So that is about all that has been happening here. Jason and I went to see the OB today, had a good chat with her about how we felt about a few issues, and got most of them resolved. We got to hear the heart beat! It is so amazing to hear that. Tomorrow we go to the Midwife, and are going to take Taylor with us, so that he too can hear the baby. He is so excited about all of this. I sure hope that he can be with us durring the delivery. I hope that if we have to do things in the hospital, that they will still allow him in with us.

Have a good night all, and thanks for the prayers.
