For example, today I had an assignment due. I had a week to work on it, but it was 1 of 4 assignments that I had over the week and this one had the latest due date. I woke up determined to get it done early in the day, but after Hannah had breakfast and we were both ready for the day I stopped by parents to ask a favor of my dad, he wasn't home. My mom, who has MS and a full time care giver, was having an anxious day so I decided to bring her home with me to spend some time with Hannah. By the time we all got home it was lunch time. After lunch was made, served, and cleaned up I spent some time distracted by my mom and Hannah. Before I knew it, it was time to make dinner. After everyone ate, I had to clean up yet again. Then I took my mom back home, and my dad was there so I talked to him about some work I want to get done on our house before Josh gets home. When we got home Hannah went to her room to play for a bit, and I started in on my homework. I got a good start on it, when Hannah asked me to build a castle with her. She asked so sweetly that I could not refuse, so we built castles. When we were done she helped me pick up the blocks, and we were on to bath time. As I was getting her pjs on Josh got online. So I let her watch tv in my room while I chatted with him. After we got off line, I finished getting Hannah ready for bed, and tried to get her to sleep. She wouldn't stay in bed, and finally I had to lay in bed with her... She still would not settle down, and it was nearly 11pm when she FINALLY gave it up and went to sleep. I started in on my assignment again, with an hour until deadline. After 3hrs of working on it, I am calling it a night. It still isn't finished, but at this point it is already late. So late it will have to be.
|My very 1st priority of everyday is to keep this face a smiling one!|
I sit here tonight, and try to picture the day when this will all be over. When Josh will be home, and safe again. Everyday we get closer to that, and for that I am thankful. Until then, I will continue to push on, and pray for the safety of my solider and his men.
