I Hate Laundry...

...but I love clean clothes?
Valentine's party was really fun for the kiddos. I was able to help a bit with clean-up but not to the extent I usually do. I generally enjoy the cleaning up part mostly because it is a smaller group of workers and that makes it fun. However, I still had a trip to see my stepfather in the hospital and then home for a bit before going to see mom. His room was empty when we arrived which was quite startling. He was moved to long-term care. He still has to regain use of his left side before he will be able to return home. Our dream is that he and Mom get better at the same time. When they both get home it will be a whole lot harder!

It is almost 4 and I had hoped to do some laundry. Laundry or nap...just kidding-I know it is laundry. My husband is wonderful and he will pitch in to help anywhere I need it-I just hate for him to have to do it all. He works really hard all day and he has been taking care of lots of extra stuff as well.

Thanks to my two non-hugging friends who hugged me today. You know who you are! I was glad not to have to fake too much with people who know me and what all is going on. It is so good to have friends who allow me to just be there and let me be somewhat unchatty. Tis a rare thing for me but it does happen sometimes. Thank you fellow bloggers who are keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for the updates. It helps to know how to pray for you.

It is very tough but God is giving you the strength to make it through and even with some sense of humor...dear lady.
