in keeping honest...

i tried to sit down and post about favorite foods friday and the fun we had in auburn last week and how much fun my birthday was, but i'm just not up to it. not right now that is. right now i have a little sick person who...

is running, jumping, climbing on every surface in the house because the meds make her wacko. hence the need for her bike helmet at all times...

and she's gotten smart enough to figure out that when i'm distracted by cooking dinner that she can get away with stuff. the other day it happened to be suckers. she found the drawer i keep them in and then proceeded to get them all and open and lick each one. then leave them stuck to our couch. seriously this happened in 10 minutes and i had no clue. harold came home and saw this and photographed it. oh brother...

seriously, she can't just use things as intended. she *always* wants to find a way to climb it or jump from it. who knows where her helmet is in this picture but rest assured it was somewhere close.

so basically, i'm just spent. physically AND spiritually. but that's my fault. in the middle of all the beautiful chaos, i've let my guard down and let old fears and worries creep in {about her health}. so instead of spending lots of time online, i am resolved to have my nose back in the scriptures that heal and soothe and restore. and be reminded that our God is a consuming fire lest i be consumed with anything else. including my child.
i'll be back later this week to share all the fun stuff. just got knocked down a little but i'm getting back up slowly. and don't worry...i can rally.
