Both my dad & my brother called tonight to see if I was ok. I can tell by their voices and their words that they are really worried. Thank you both for caring about me so deeply.
We're good. We're on the upswing from our little drama.
Matt and I went on a double date with some new(er) friends of ours this past weekend. It's so amazing to have a couple we enjoy being with as a couple. She works with me and the hubbies are in the same career field, so they have A LOT to talk about when we're together. And we go to different branches of the same church. It's a bit scary how much we have in common really.
The boys are doing well. Payton is (still) doing well at school. We're working hard to teach him what's his responsibility and what's ours. Today he missed out on all his media time because he didn't remember to bring home his spelling words for his test Friday. I explained that since part of his homework is to study his spelling words and he didn't have his spelling list, that he couldn't do his homework fully. And thus, no media time seeing as our homework has to be done before we get our privileges. I think he'll remember his spelling list from now on.
Maxwell is trying to potty train. He gets it about 1/2 the time. He's really good at telling us just as he's starting or finishing. Only a few times has he told us before hand. Payton is taking him to the bathroom a lot. Every 30-45 minutes it seems. But it's good for them both. Payton is a natural teacher and Maxwell loves to do anything Payton does. I'm actually doing little of the work. And I like it that way!
We'll be heading to OH next week for Thanksgiving. I'm excited to see my family all together. It's been since June that we've done that...and back at last Christmas the time before that. I miss them.
Thanks again to everyone who send a card, a text, an email or a prayer in my direction. I appreciate them all. They worked.
