Family Visit

We had Matthews sister and her family in town for a few days! We went to Galveston and Kemah. Today is a down day at home since they leave early tomorrow morning. We are going to just hang here today and relax.

We went to Kemah yesterday and went into the pizza place next to the little arcade. We ate in the seating area between the restaurant and the arcade and the music was so LOUD! As we were ordering a man was drilling in there and it was loud. Jace covered his ears and almost cried it was so well. He has sensitive ears.

So when we went to the sitting area and the music was so loud the waitress lady went and turned the music down for us. She came back and said she is on the autism spectrum and she understands being sensitive to noises. She came back and gave Jace earplugs. She said she always carries two pairs. She was so kind and thoughtful to try to make his visit to their restaurant better. She truly made my day! That music was terrible and she realized it and was so helpful. I wish I would have gotten her picture. Truly a gem!



I have been struggling with a lot. My brain is foggy. My eyes are so tired I have been struggling to stay awake. My joints hurt. My heart palpitates. I work out and eat clean and gain weight. It’s nearly impossible for this darn weight to come off and it’s not for lack of trying.

I feel miserable all the time. I suck it up and accept it as life but it really gets to me some days.

I look at my three blessings and they just make all the difference. Those kids mean the world to me. Even when I feel like crap. They are so sweet. God really knew what he was doing blessing me with them. I am so thankful. Now. Here’s to hoping I find a new doc soon that can prescribe me a new medicine. I’m going to call around next week and see.

The Aquatic Academy

Guys I love coach Charyl at the Aquatic academy.

So much.

I started my kiddo in swim lessons. She’s 11. She was always too scared but seemed ready to finally learn.

My kid is the one on the right. Anyways. She can swim. I wonder if she doesn’t believe she can. Coach sees what she can do and pushes her. My daughter doubts herself and fights coach on doing things. Coach Charyl does not give in. Pushes her hard. The best thing is she just pours goodness into her. She looks her in the eyes and makes her repeat positive affirmations all the time. I can do it. I can swim. I have lungs of steel. And on and on.

I fully trust with coach Charyl loving and pushing her she will be a confident swimmer in no time.
