The day began by me not having set the alarm so I did not get to the gym this morning as planned. We were all very slow getting around and I know the prior three days took their toll. Managed to get through some schoolwork with the kids (not easily with little boy) before my phone call with Health & Welfare. Got through that "training" in about 45 minutes and now I have to spend time filling out more paperwork prior to the 2-day training in January.

Took Maegann to the Osteopathic doctor this afternoon to see if he could find a reason that her eyes might have changed so much and have been changing so frequently. He found that her back and neck were a mess so he adjusted the back (she's been sore) and massaged the neck. She literally gained an inch in height from it! Strange! He said that the condition of the neck/back can affect the elongation of the eye so we'll see what changes come now.

Isaac spent much time in his room or outside today as he's just been a grumpy, sassy kid. I know he's tired, but there are still rules of respect in this house. Hopefully he's more rested tomorrow.

Tonight after dinner I headed downstairs to work on my James bible study but when I reached for the book the paperwork to review eligibility on the kids' Medicaid caught my eye. It is due Friday! So that's what I did instead. Filled out page after page and made copies of all the proof. Only need one more "proof" document and then I can copy it and mail it in.

Tomorrow's plan: gym, school and attending a Christmas party at dad's assisted living place in the evening.


Today I really wanted a soda, but I did not give in. I stuck with my water and iced tea. I am about to grab a Crystal Light though just to have something sweet.

    Yay for your continued NO Soda.

    It sounds like you almost have the paperwork monster conquered! Another yay!

    Certainly Isaac has been on the go just like the rest of you, so it seems to be time to rest up for him!

    May God bless you and your family!
