Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

My name is Leah, and I'm a blog slacker

I don't even have any good reason to be slacking. I don't have much in the way of homework for school (well, I haven't had anyway, that's starting to turn! LOL) Angela has been busy with floor hockey, and has needed to have someone go hang out with her there so she remembers to keep her hands to herself (!) but I've only gone a couple of times. Otherwise Dean or our behavior specialist goes. What a blessing she has been!!! Ok, both her and Dean! the last person Angela wants at practice is her Mooooooom, but Dean and J. are cool. LOL

I've raised all the money I need for my Bulgaria trip, and we're just waiting for a travel date. We're really hoping to have it by the end of the week! Please join my in prayer that we are traveling the last week of March. That is about the only week that won't seriously affect school! Then, once we get the date, please pray that getting arrangements for Angela figured out doesn't turn into some kind of problem! I'm going to have to coordinate schedules between Dean and Angela's dad, which could be interesting!

I have a few really cute pictures on my camera. Unfortunately my camera decided to die! This is one of those good/bad things. It's bad, camera died! But I bought it for $100 on craigslist over a year ago, and it served me well. But it's never been what I WANTED. And I have to be honest, usually once I decide I WANT something, I usually find a way to get it somehow! So, at the moment I'm trying to decide if I have enough money to get the camera I WANT, and maybe take a quick class before going to Bulgaria so I know what to do with it, like TURN IT ON! LOL

Speaking of school, it's going well! Remember that math class I was scared to death about? So far I have an A! Finals are on Friday, so please join me in prayer that I will maintain my GPA! Then, in 2 weeks I need to re-take a placement test to see if I move to the top of the waiting list for the program I wanted to get into in the first place.

This week I'm working on my thesis and outline for a persuasive research paper. Yuck. I thought I knew what I was doing it on, but I'm not quite feeling it yet. I really need to feel it to make it a good paper. I also have to do an argumentative paper due next week. Considering I usually avoid confrontations (no...really!) I'm having trouble with the topic.

Angela's school issue is not yet resolved, which reminds me I need to call the attorney tomorrow morning to find out where we're ate.

OH, and I also need to call the ENT and see if I can get tubes in my ears before the Bulgaria trip! When Angela and I went to Boston in December, it took 6 weeks for my hearing to return to normal because my Eustachian tubes were such a mess from flying. Flying several international flights over the course of a few days would be beyond miserable! (the decent of the plain causes a feeling like icepicks being jabbed into my ears, and my hearing nearly disappears!) I saw the ENT shortly after we returned from Boston and he said tubes would take care of the problem. So...tomorrow I need to rememeber to call!

I think that's about it. What a boring post without pictures!!!!!

you blog more than I do by far. I look forward to your posts but I completely understand how life gets in the way and those quiet minutes disappear. I haven't posted yet but I will be leaving for Russia again on 3/11 (with Randy and MICHAEL) and will have court "sometime the week of 3/15"! How is that for vague. Its been a big ugly mess around here the last 2 weeks.
