Today has been really mellow. I have been fighting this terrible cough and it is making me ache all over. My stomach muscles are very sore, so I'm trying to rest as much as I can. I chose not to go to church today (I hate not going), but I knew I need to just relax. I hate it when people come to church coughing their heads off, so why should I treat someone else to that?
I called my step mom, Diana and she came to take Jessica and Andrew to church for me. Right before he was ready to leave, Andrew lifted up his shirt and I saw a rash all over the trunk of his body. I immediately though "chicken pox" but I don't think that is it after looking it up on the Internet. If it is, it is a very mild case. He has been vaccinated for it, so the chances are 85% that he won't get it. Diana and I decided that he shouldn't go.
Steve came home and watched the kids while I went back to bed. I actually slept! It felt so good.
We are not doing much today. The kids are listening to "Adventure's in Odyssey" right now on our new little CD player I bought for the kitchen. I love having it in there, now I can listen to CSN network (Calvary Satellite Network) and hear my favorite preachers. I've missed it! I also love their worship music and "Too Every Man an Answer" Live Call-In apologetics program.
I am just breading some chicken tonight, baking it in the oven and serving salad and rice with it. Very simple.
Yesterday, my friend Margaret came over and we watched a Beth Moore DVD together. It was very good. She even brought us over a casserole, so I didn't have to cook. It was very nice of her. The kids got to play with her kids for awhile, too.
Jacob just woke up, so I need to scoot. Thank you for your sweet thoughts, comments and prayers on my behalf. I think I might be in a better frame of mind today. I've done my Bible study and I am trying to cling to the Rock who is high than I!
