I got the nicest date today with my husband ALONE! (gasp!) I would not have ventured out just yet, but needed to get some blood work done. That counts for a date in MY book!
One of the nurses I saw today asked how many pregnancies I've had (seven), and how many children I have living (five). Turning away from protocol for a moment, she asked the ages of my crew and if I had a picture of them.
Oh NO! My moment of glory - a chance to show off my absent children and NO PICTURE?!!
"7, 6, 4, 2, and 1" I told her "and I'm afraid I don't have a picture. I never go anywhere without my children! I suppose if I'm going to start, I'd better carry a picture of them for proof!"
AJ says we will promptly go back to taking them everywhere again. We like it better that way:-) But for today... we enjoyed a quiet lunch at Olive Garden (looked right past that pepperoncinni), and my Dearest bought me another battery charger for my camera battery which I have been sorely missing for a couple weeks. I am VERY excited about that, and you can expect to see pictures once again starting tomorrow!!!!! What do you want to see pictures of? I'm happy to oblige:-) Also, I'd love to hear what strange outings constitute a "date" with your beloved - TELL ALL!
Thank you each for your continued prayers. Thank you for your encouragements here and on my other blog. Thank you, brother for calling me today; Kelly, for YOUR call; Mrs. Smith for watching my hoodlums once again; and all you visitors to my blog who never say hello - your presence blesses me too!
