So, it's Wednesday and I am but normal again. Sort of .
I still get a sharp pain on the one incision site if I bend over, so I just squat now. Pretty.
And I do get more tired than normal. But since I will be working next week, I will just deal with it. I have to say, I have thoroughly enjoyed this time at home with my family. Mom was here pretty much everyday the first two weeks, and then my dad was here last week. AugustRose cried herself to sleep last night because he left this morning. She kept saying, please let "Dadu" stay longa. Dadu, is short for Dadumagoosa. Which is supposed to be дедушка (de-dush-ka). It was quite pitiful. He will be back in mid June for the girlz ballet recitals. And then we go to his beach house for the summer. Of course that's after we spend a magical week at Disney.
AugustRose is still talking about her party. It was so fun. We got lots of feedback and now I will have to top it for next year. Anna will celebrate at the Magic Kingdom. She has an appointment at Bibbity Boppity Boo for a princess make-over then we have a reservation at the Crystal Palace for an early supper. It should be super fun, but a whole lot different.
Last week I started a book that Bernadette gave to me. A daily prayer book. Since I want to follow God's plan for me, I am reading the prayer for each new day, then going back to read the day where it focused on "decision making." Yes, I am still thinking about trying to get our little family to Russia for the 2011-12 school year. I don't have a job yet, don't even know if I should really push for it yet. Really, don't even know if they want me... Tina, I know what you will say. "Don't do it." But I would be taking my mom with me. She has even agreed to substitute. (she was a teacher then principal for 33 years) And my dad is trying to get a job in the Ukraine. So really, it's just a matter how we will get my sister to eastern Europe....I love my home, but I am an adventure girl. I love to get lost in the city where I live. I haven't been lost in a long time. I want to study the Russian language and come home after a few years and teach it...I want my girlz to be in a school with children who have traveled, been places, done wayy cooler things than we have ever done. I hate it that she is the only person who has been to Disney. I hate it that the children in her class don't go on vacation. It makes her seem privileged. And she isn't. We are just blessed by circumstance...
Tina, ask your daughter about that school opportunity she knew of...Wonder if its still out there?
My friend from the blogger world is on her way to Anna's region in Khabarovsk. She is "closing the deal" on her little son. Pray for her. She has a long way to go. And will be there for quite a while. Love ya Stacey!!!
