As for the other major change, this one was not of my choosing. When I started this blog I was the stay at home mom of 6 kids that homeschooled and that was a big part of what I talked about. But my health really has taken a sharp decline- I am much weaker then I used to be. I use my cane when I am going to be out for an extended period of time, but the truth is I am almost never out for an extended period of time any more. I spend most of my time sitting, laying down or resting. The pain I am in is constant and to the point that relief is almost non-existent and we are looking into other options to find some level of pain management. I simply was physically unable to continue homeschooling. We very quickly found a small private Christian school and because Jeff is a pastor and because of my health issues, they gave us an enormous discount on tuition and we were able to send both boys there and will probably also be sending the other kids there next year as well.
And I was built to laugh.
