Yes I am going to whine and no, you do not have to read further if you don't want! It's really just for me!
Guess what? Ashley is still sick and so Dave is taking her to the doctor this afternoon. How thrilling! The fever will not stay down and this is the fourth day and I am frustrated! She is NOT a happy camper and that is putting it mildly! She is to play in a volleyball tournament on Friday night and so there is no way she can practice and let's just say she is EXTREMELY unhappy about that!
Then - oh yes, there is more!!!!! At 2:30 this morning, our lovely oldest daughter woke us up with "I just threw up". I am not joking! So, she proceeded to do that at about 30 minute intervals through the night and according to her sister, it's an ongoing problem! Now Carrie is a very unhappy girl!! She missed a whole week of school and work due to the flu and now this! She only has so many cuts with her college classes and the "homecoming" is not too far away and she just knows she won't have enough cuts and her frustration is literally "spilling" over into the bucket!!!!
So - the whining, yes, that is what I am doing!! I know - deal with it, right? I am - at least I am working on it!!! It's just NOT what I think needs to be going on right now! Since the Scripture teaches us to "bless the Lord at all times", I am trying to find things to be thankful for! 1) David called and he is doing well and enjoying a short R & R trip and is looking forward to homecoming! 2) Dave hasn't gotten sick yet!!!!! 3) I haven't thrown up and trust me, THAT is something to praise God for! 4) We have insurance and that is a blessing!! 5) I am thanking God for Diet Dew because without it today, I would be half dead!
See? I am still praising!!!!
