Negative Nancy

Well, made it through surgery on my teeth, and I must admit Chris was even a pretty good nurse all weekend long. (Since I ended up not feeling well most of the weekend.) I am actually waiting on a call back from the dentist now though, because I think one side may be infected. It is very swollen and I'm still having to take pain medication for it. This was a good week. Mom and Dad finally got to come up for a visit, and HA did great when Mom had to take her wig off to sleep with her (she left on her sleeping cap). In fact, HA told her, "awwww, you look cute!" : ) 
Last night we did the Wednesday Night Live at church. It was a little wild, but I think we will eventually get it down. My Beth Moore bible study doesn't start until next week. I'm excited about it. So my medicine has been working better lately, but I've been a lot more negative than I like to be. I know part of it is just meds not completely right, but it is really bothering me. So I am really focusing on it today and working on not being negative. I don't even have a reason to be negative!!! Here are a few recent pics. 

HA on the way to her first fall soccer game. Man was it hot! 
Chris helped coach.

Two in a Row!!

Woot woot!! Okay so somehow I (or Collins) deleted my Blogger app on my phone that I used to blog on and easily add photos. I cannot remember my password which is making it very difficult. I can't figure out how to sign on. Troubleshooting isn't working anyone have help?? If you are a reader that can help message me on here or Facebook. It's driving me insane. 

Today was laundry day and soccer practice. HA cried because they voted on a team name (the colors are black and white) of the White Butterflies instead of her suggestion of the Panda Bears. Tomorrow is my oral surgery. I'm nervous since my Mom won't be here, and I'll have to rely on Chris to be my nurse and babysitter. I think everyone knows no one is a better nurse than your Momma! 

I did want to put a few pics up. Because of my oral surgery, I don't know when I will write again, but I am going to try to keep up the blog much more often again. Here are a few pics I meant to put up on the last post. 

The bravest woman I know!!! 
We are back to school uniforms.
Happy while shopping

For some reason, every single time I sit down to blog, I end up changing my mind. I think how I really have nothing interesting to share (which I never did nor did I ever intend to..ha!) or how no one reads it (which per the numbers isn't true but feels like it due to lack of comments), etc. etc... And so I don't blog and regret it later that I'm not keeping it up. Yes, I may be going through a hard time right now with my Mom (and best friend at that) having cancer and all of the many big and small ways it has negatively changed our daily lives, but why not let some of it out through blogging or just even using the blog as an escape? So, that's what I'm going to try to do. 
It has been several weeks since I posted, so I'll update you on what's going on in my life. We will start with my Mom. She is coming up on being halfway done with her chemo treatments (which she seems to be responding well to) this coming week. She bravely shaved her head when her hair started to fall out. So now she sports baseball caps like I do when I haven't washed my hair. Ha! She says the wigs are itchy and uncomfortable. The girls haven't seen her in person since she shaved her head, and I am a little nervous about how they will handle it. HA has already added to her nightly prayers, "and bring back Mah Mau's hair." 
As far as meds go, I think we are finally headed in the right direction. Bashty confirmed it for me the other night at dinner when she said she could tell I was back to being me and how happy she was for me that I was feeling better. She's always a good gauge of how I'm doing because she knows me so well and we spend almost every Saturday together. I told her I didn't feel 100% to which she reminded me no one in my circumstances would right now (Mom's cancer). She had a good point. 
HA has decided she wants to be Sophia the First (Disney) for Halloween, so we will make her birthday party with the same theme like we always do. As you can imagine, I'm already trying to come up with "royal" ideas! :) 
HA has started fall soccer. Her first game is this Saturday. Not positive I'm going to be able to make it since I'm having two teeth implants done this Friday morning. I hope I can just take a pain pill and go anyway. 
We are starting what's called Wednesday Night Live at our church (Franklin First United Methodist Church) next week. I'll be in a women's Beth Moore bible study and HA will do Cherub Choir. 
And finally...I'm looking for a job and our house is still on the market...anyone else feel overwhelmed?! ;)
