Changes

Soon I may need to change the name of this blog, or at least add an addendum.

You see, when Carmen made her First Communion in May, Father told the children that it was the perfect time to ask for a very special intention. Carmen asked for a baby brother.

Well, we won't know yet if its a brother, but there is certainly a baby on the way for our family!

That, dear friends, explains my sporadic posting and various references to exhaustion and concern over the slight chaos in my home. I've felt VERY sick most days. As in can't sit up straight all day. It takes a toll on the smooth running of our home. And TIRED. Can I even describe the tired? I can't. It just sucks.

Even so, I wouldn't trade a single moment of sick and tired. We will get through this, we'll find order and a rhythm that works for all of us. And we will continue to be full of great joy.
