wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

waiting around....

i'm not waiting around bc i'm bored.  well, i kind of am bored, but not for lack of having things to do. i have a ton of things, crafty things, to be doing. but it's 10 pm.  so i quit for the night....and sawyer was in bed at 8:30....ridge usually crashes for a few hours around 9...so bdawg and i were gonna catch a movie on demand.  so things worked out great because ridge was wide awake and laughing....the cable wasn't working....and i've been trying to drink one cup of coffee all day and haven't gotten it done.  so here i sit, blogging and trying to drink that coffee while ridge is in the back of the house with the hubs....throwing a huge fit (the baby, not the daddy).  man.  if you didn't know our history, i bet that sounds kind of...normal.
sawyer got 3 letters in the mail today (well, cards/stickers/whatnots).  what a day!
i went to target and hancocks and homeland....did quite a bit of sewing....my parents came by for a bit...and last night uncle G and aunt B (maybe i should call you something else, since the OTHER aunt is already deemed aunt B....hmmm...aunt DB it shall be...until i find a more suitable term for you) and Sir Baby Noah came over. I like calling that baby Sir Noah...so Sir Noah he shall be.  anyway, i COOKED dinner for the....well 6 of us who eat table food...Sir noah just chilled in his carrier until he woke up and his momma held him. Anyway, we had spaghetti.  and ridge LOVED it!  ridge is getting so big. he likes to eat table food and he is oh so very close to walking!  he still loves the idea of a bath so i have to gain some patience or just decide to get his central line out and another port placed bc he isn't going to be patient about not getting a regular bath much longer.  ANYWAY...so sir noah and all of his cuteness was here...hanging out at my house.  it was a grand time filled with baby eyes staring at the light/ceiling fan, borrowed washing machine time to clean sir n's baby clothes....chitty chatting with aunt db, lego mania with uncle g (okay, not lego mania....but giant legos, sawyer, and uncle G, so it was a fun time)....anyway...just some good hanging out time.  no cards were played or anything bc now with 3 kids around it seems like someone always needs to be fed or changed or held...or maybe we are all just too tired to want to do anything but sit! ha.  anyway, so glad they are back.
i'm rambling. i'm tired. too late for a movie i guess.  no, the coffee doesn't keep me awake. it doesn't really even phase me.
ridge is doing really well still.  we have about 4 more days on the steroids, and then i think it will be interesting to see how well he does.  normally after we come off the steroids, it is only a matter of days (if even that) before the bleeding resumes.  he is getting older every single day so i am
certainly hoping that this time at home will be a long time....filled with some normalcy.  i even made him a grocery cart cover so that he can get out with me now!  (not yet, not while on the high dose of steroids...but...soon!)...SEE:

i used a pattern and everything-- so straight laced am i.  normally i free lance everything/make my own pattern....but i bought the pattern and about had to throw it in the trash before i was finished, but we made amends and i forgave it and used it anyway.  i was quite proud of this project because i usually make for others-- gifts or orders or whatever, but i don't usually make for us/our kids....so ridge got something GOOD out of yesterday's work.  plus it's in OSU colors, so i know you will all agree, it is absolutely adorable.  right? all of you. ALL of you. (um...if you don't know me, you know i'm not serious...because i could care less about pretty much ANYTHING having to do with sports.  but bdawg is a pokes fan, so i ran with it on the cart cover.)
my eyes are crossing i'm so tired.  so i will sign off from this random post. i hope the week has found you well.  thank you for your thoughts and prayers! our hope is that normalcy will be here sooner than later....every saturday night at home i become somewhat sad...i am glad to be here, but i know sunday is rolling around, and i just dont' feel like we can take ridge to church when he is on the steroids and has his immune system so compromised....but we so miss our church. i know some of you Yukon Church friends read this-- WE MISS YOU!!! thank you for the kind cards and awesome gift basket full of snacks when we were in the hospital.  for the phone calls/voicemails/text messages/prayers....oh we love you, church family!

well....i don't really have anything else to tell anyone tonight!  if we can stay home awhile, maybe i shall get better/back in the swing of things with the blog!

take care!
