I have really missed blogging recently. So much is going on and life is so crazy-stressful but long story short, I really do miss blogging. Hopefully I'll be writing more regularly soon.

Daniel is still home with his back injury. It's been pretty miserable, though not as bad as it could be. As usual Daniel's had all of the side-effects and none of the relief from his pain meds. All Daniel can do comfortably is lay in bed - bless his heart! Hopefully he'll get an MRI soon and we'll know better what is really wrong with his back.

I planted my seedlings today. I'm actually really sore from the crouching on the ground, weird. However, no sooner were my seedlings in the ground in the back then my girls decided to do some re-landscaping to my just-about-to-bloom mums in the front. It's really not a huge deal, they tend to get infested with aphids and are not terribly successful plants, but still. It's irksome when my kiddos get into a destructive frame of mind.

We keep our windows open 24/7 right now. Tonight that is wonderful because the honeysuckle in the back yard is blooming! Today Beth & Emma scoured the yard for honeysuckle blossoms. Last summer I watched a little girl who is a year older than Beth and she taught them to get the "honey" from the honeysuckle. They are just getting to be so big!

Speaking of kiddos getting to be big - Beth has been asking for a Bible. She gets extra points in KidMo (the kid's program at church) if she brings her Bible but Daniel has said "No Bible until you know how to read it." So we were in the Family Christian Store picking up a CD and Beth picks up a Bible (a "pray for the cure" pink Bible) out of that section and says "I like this one. If you want to get me this one, I'd take it." That's her weird way of asking me to get it for her. I said "Okay, well let me see you read it." So I opened it randomly and she started reading. The print was a bit too small so she got messed up on what line she was on a lot, but other than that she was reading! It's amazing to watch her suddenly be able to read so well. I got a book out of the Library last time to read to her but she's been reading it to me -how cool is that?

One more little tidbit and then I'm off the computer for the night - I am designing my first ever real website! I just started the project this week. I'm designing an e-commerce storefront for a hand-sewn, custom-made sort of line of clothing for a boutique in Buckhead. I am so excited. I'll drop a link when it's done.

Okay, bye now. Love ya!
