You know, I try to keep this upbeat but sometimes things just het tough. Nobody reads this anyway, so I'm just gonna vent.
Mikal's back to doing his business only. It picked up for a bit but now it seems to be slowing down again. I can't help but be jealous of other people I know who have financial security. It just seems that we have struggled non stop for 8 years. How much better would our family dynamic be if that stress wasn't so constant? I love our parents, but I wish that education had been encouraged more... for the both of us. We are at such a disadvantage. Even though we are trying to get Mikal through school now, it would have been soooooo beneficial 10 years ago! I take comfort in knowing that we can change this with Abby.
I wish also, that we weren't in this small apartment! Oh, how I want a house! I'm not very outgoing and it would be so nice to have space to have people over and maybe make some friends. I pray that we can make this dream a reality soon. I want Abby to have a yard and be able to write on the walls and it be OURS! LOL
Anyway... I'll stop whining. I think I actually almost miss working. Not that I don't want to be home with Abby, I wouldn't trade that for a second. I just miss contributing. We are joining the Y this week and I really think that will help me a lot. If I can get out a lil bit AND get some excercise to get in better shape, I'll feel MUCH better. Just, if anyone does read this, keep us in your prayers?
Here are some recent shots of my angel...
Mikal found her sleeping like this... she was cross legged under there and snoring like crazy. How is that comfy??
