hi. My trip to Alberta was very nice and then I had grad reunion stuff (10 year highschool) which was also interesting.
I don't feel like reporting much on those but a little update on current things is that I'm pretty sure I'm suffering from a sleep disorder. Been doing a bit of reading. Yah, I cannot remember the last time I woke up refreshed - actually maybe 3 weeks ago I felt a little normal in the sleep department, while at the Abraham's house. Anyway, yesterday was especially bad, yawning all day and feeling generally depilitated. I think I do not get enough REM sleep...pretty sure that's it. So, learning more about this (sleep) is hopeful, cause I can get some ideas of what to do to help.
Camp ends tomorrow for the summer, then we have some rental groups come in and even a wedding we are hosting on the property. I was a baby shower for a girl at our church - ran into our pastor's wife on Wed. at the grocery store and she invited me. So, it was for a baby boy - Justice - who has an older sister who is 2.3 yrs. and one who is 4 yrs. The Mom Alyssa, was interested in getting together some time. Some other moms and older ladies from our church (or not) were also there. It was nice. I asked Alyssa how it was with 3 and she said, "Great, I can't get enough of it." and I thought to myself and desires to have more kids and how I just thought that day one is good with my current energy level. I can be extremely irritable when I am so zonked and have little motivation...haven't unpacked tons or caught up on dishes yet. Another project on the go is these encouragement notes we are to write for all the staff...good idea and I love doing it, I just left the project too late. Sarah and I got mixed up on when brunch and we missed it - this camp is different than all the others schedule-wise so there has been a few mix ups that way. Sarah got an early b-day present. I had bought a 'little people' bus at a garage sale in the spring and was saving it in a cupboard and she saw it this morn. when Andy was getting his walkie-talkie out of the cupboard (where the charger is kept). Andy then got it out for her - he didn't know the plan. Anyway, we washed and dried it together - S. and I and she is enjoying it now.
Last night when I was changing S.'s diaper before bed we heard the campers scream and I said, "Who is that?" and she said, "camps." Awh, my girl can say 'camps.' So cool. Yah, she's been talking a lot more. Come, Mom. Get. Cut. Wash.
So, ya, if you think of me, please pray for patience and perseverance and discipline when it comes to doing what I can to help my sleep get back on track. One day there will be pictures again on here. I have so many...er...a little overwhelming. Oh well, deep breath...thank you God for a chance to write, the sun, my girl and for holding me together...there I go getting wetness in my eyes. Love you guys...especially thinking of family I got to see recently - Odegards, Klassens and Abrahams. Bye for now.
Book on the go that I'm so enjoying - "Reaching for the Invisible God" by Philip Yancy. Good part about not asking for trials to go away but recognizing God's presence through them.
