Not normal = weary

Life feels .... unsettled I guess. Not great, not bad, not really stressful....just not normal.

Now normal can be hard to describe as every day in Haiti can look different and comes with unpredictablity. But I almost feel like I've stepped into someone else's life.

This week I've: gone with Anna and Frizlin to a funeral for one of Cory's aunts; driven Anna to driver's education; gone grocery shopping; gone to the library; put gas in the car; cooked rhubarb; filled in several more pieces of the puzzle called "Thede's summer schedule"; took one child for a health appointment; made eye and dental appointments; attended a women's Bible study; texted with Eli; visited in person with an aunt and niece; started planning for Anna and Fritzlin's party in July; watched TV;  and used up LOTS of the unlimited band-width available to me!

None of these's things do I 'normally' do.

I did a few 'normal' things too like: cleaning, dishes, cooking, laundry, home-school, reading, communication by email/Facebook.

Transitional make me tired. Working on the house build made me physically tired. But I'm tired. A strange type of tired...not physical, not due to lack of sleep, not because of stress...but tired.

Maybe weary is a better word. Yes, weary--one of the definitions of which is 'calling for a great deal of energy or endurance".

The weary transition time can only be experienced well, with the Lord's help.

So I hope you're praying for me and our family.

Fritzlin continues to do well. Anna's enjoying driver's training and drove twice already. Eli's learning a lot during his training for camp. Cory will be heading to the airport tomorrow morning and should be in Michigan by noon on Saturday.

There are actually plenty of particulars like that to take into consideration. That may be a great level to convey up. I supply the ideas above as normal inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you deliver up where a very powerful thing will likely be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round things like that, however I'm certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both girls and boys really feel the impact of only a moment’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives. casino slots
