While I do strive to be thankful in all things, and complaining about the weather always seems to be a tad bit (a lot) in vain to me. This is definitely my least favorite thing to see on the forecast.
It's miserable & we will be out in it, playing football, working, standing there taking photos while sweat drips down your back. Dangerous heat. Hoping my boys listen and drink water, wondering if the boil water advisory is lifted in Decatur & hoping everyone has enough to drink today. Yes, this is America.
We celebrated my dad's birthday yesterday! This was part of the group, others were gone swimming, sunday school party and Colton is at Purdue for his freshmen year of college. James & Brookelyn were wanting to take off for home, so we went ahead & sang.
Then we sang again. Love Eva's face.
It was good to have these two around this weekend. I will complain just a tad that I didn't have the space to keep them here comfortably so I had to share & let them stay at my parents house. Cut into my time. Plus the came also for Alex & Kristin's showers & I shared with them too. I won't complain about that though.
I think I am allowed to officially say that James is now an "unsworn officer" for the Bluffton Police Department! He will be attending the police academy in November-March & they will be moving to our area by spring! Not sure my feelings on the police work equal my feelings on the moving close to home, but I guess I'll take them both.
It's Kiahna's birthday week this week. She has been looking forward to this all year. Let's hope she is not disappointed! Ha!
The celebration started last night with the family, I am sure it will be a fun week.
I was sick last week, Kiahna was home on Tuesday with it, then she gave it to me. Just a cold, but a nasty one. Used my oils for the first time with a cold. I have to say a few things about that. First off, Thieves is amazing. I had no tickle dry throat when I slept. Going to purchase the Thieves spray, but this time I just dumped it down my throat & it was incredible. Couldn't taste or smell a thing (and if you have smelled Thieves, you know how crazy that is) but it was working obviously. The other thing that amazed me is that I have barely blew my nose. I mean all night long. Slept. No tickle & no snot. I can't tell you where all that usual drainage went, but it seems to be dissolving without the usually annoyance. I will say this, I still felt awful. Weak, tired, achy, coughed a bit, hard to breath in the humidity. I used RC, peppermint, thieves, lavender, & purification. I diffused like crazy & applied it topically. All those except RC come in the starter kit.
I do sell Young Living Essential oils, if anyone is interested in trying them.
Well, hats off to the Monday morning phone call that I just got to the wrong number telling me "good morning beautiful friend", I don't know who it was, because she never said, but I knew who she was looking for & she knew me I guess I'll take it.
Have a great week & drink your water!
In His Grip,
