So I'm not doing well as you noticed by the last post, and to top it off now -- Chris has come down with a bad cold or the flu or something terrible like that. So for the moment we are both SICK and under the weather!! My ward is so great and awesome though because my first night home we had a dinner brought to us and then Saturday night one of my visiting teachers brought dinner by and tonight my sister in law !!!! WOW!!! It's been so nice and needed!! And we actually have people willing to help with meals for the next few nights as well. I've got rides arranged for my girls to get to and from school through Wednesday. What a relief!!! I thought I was going to be "OH SO TUFF" and not need all this help but when my husband nosedived into the bed this weekend -- I just wanted to start crying!!
So for the moment I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and wishing things were better for us healthwise. Trying to get rest while having 5 rowdy, energetic kids is absolutely unheard of !! SO hopefully while the girls are back at school tomorrow and the boys take their naps I can get a nap in and get some more much needed rest!!
I even have people that are willing to help with watching my kids too!! But I don't know if I really need that kind of help!! But it's amazing how everyone is so willing to help when someone needs the help and even when they think they don't need the help.
So now we are on a crash course to getting healthy because my husbands sister is getting married on Saturday and we don't want to miss it!! Assuming I can find someone to watch my kids while we go to the SLC temple. More things to deal with tomorrow!! I should go get some rest now, because it's been a long day. I just want to say thank to Kalena because she stopped by out of the blue and brought cupcakes for the family and then saw a need and just helped me out!! Acts of service like those are the ones that really make me feel cared about and loved, and that my heavenly father knows and answers prayers.
