hodge podge

Crazy day.

Actually, yesterday was crazy and today
I just recovered.

Long story short,
I fully expected to receive out TA on Monday
but we didn't.

Disappointment flooded my heart.

I actually did an entire blog post on it
this morning then decided against posting it.

It was whiney...and I wasn't looking for sympathy.
And if I heard one more time that God's
timing is perfect, I was going to scream.

Yes, I believe God's timing is perfect...
yes, yes, yes.

But let's face it,
there is an adversary who fights with
all his might to stop the things of God.

And just because something does,
or does not happen...


That's all I'm going to say.

Please forgive me for sounding grumpy...
I'm really not!



I had finally decided I was giving up on waiting
for B's computer to start his school
(actually, he has been able to work on his Mandarin
and Pre-Calc).

I figured D*ll would eventually get around to
sending us his new computer
and in the meantime I would go ahead and
install his other subjects onto my computer then
transfer them over later to his computer.

Got it?

Well, when I went to install his English onto
my computer I couldn't find the disk...
it was in his old (brand new) computer that
was no longer working.
I mean,
we weren't even able to turn the thing on!!
And the new fancy shmancy disk
holder thingymajig was too high-tech to just
pop open to retrieve the disk.

So...here is K-man and Brenden
working on dismantling the darn
non-working, brand new computer
trying to get the stinkin' disk out.
They got it!

Oh and wouldn'tcha know...
we got his new computer today.

So far so good.

Life is never dull.

And here are a couple of pics of the
inside of our little school room.

It's coming along rather slowly,
which is OK because that means K-man
is busy with paying jobs.


Tomorrow morning is Lucy's dental
procedure that she is having done as an
outpatient at a children's hospital not too far away.

Poor lil' pumpkin!

I will be praying for Miss Lucy tomorrow. Hope all goes well.


JR said...

I love your schoolroom! It's really neat!

Elisa said...

Hello from a fellow JTM mom. We are also waiting on our TA and I was so hopeful that Monday would be the day but instead I was told that we are waiting for the signature. Oh boy how long is that going to take. I told our agency today that we are ready to leave next Friday Sept 4 and I asked if she could find out the status of our TA again. I wasn't the least bit pushy LOL! But you know what, it has been almost 10 months since we started and I consider that I'm 1 month overdue so I figured if they aren't going to induce labor than I am LOL! Here's wishing you a TA this week and a CA even quicker!!

Debby said...

I will keep Lucy in our prayers tomorrow.....

I hope your TA just shows up when you least expect it.....

Susan said...

I will say a prayer for your little Lucy and your TA. I understand the frustration of waiting for your child. We first saw our children last Oct and are still waiting. Glad your school room is coming along. My favorite thing about the house we have now is the school room!

Karin said...

Oh, poor Lucy. Although, I suppose it's better to be put under than endure 95 visits to the dentist. (I personally wish I could be put under for every filling. I hate getting the numb face.)

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry about you not getting your TA. :(((

Janet and Kevin said...

Praying for Lucy. Hope she does well.

In Christ,
Janet, Kevin, Ted, Philip, and waiting for Eli

Continuing to pray for your TA!

Nancy said...

I missed you today. Was hoping everything was ok. Will pray for Little Lucy. And you can whine all you want...you are definitly entitled.

Chris said...

Praying for mommy and Miss Lucy, hopefully it goes smooth. How many cavities does the poor thing have?

Let's rebuke the Adversary...the Bible says he will flee from you.


Adeye said...

Praying for little Miss Lucy--trusting it all goes well.

Hang in there dear friend--I totally know how agonizing the wait is--even if a million well-meaning friends tell you it is all in God's timing. Mmmmm--If that's so--maybe God could just get a wee move-on then :)

Love and hugs

Holly said...

Well, whether it's God's perfect will or not.......... He works it all out so that His timing is always PERFECT!!!!! lol. Sorry. :) I couldn't resist. Love you, Lori! I really am so sorry that you didn't get your TA. I am continuing to pray for you guys! I know it won't be long now!

Michele said...

You know, I feel your pain waiting on something that doesn't seem that is ever going to come. I'm sorry.

And I am especially sorry for sweet Lucy. I will be praying for her tomorrow! Let us know how she does!

Janet said...

I knew something was up when you did not poat all day=(. At least the computer is finally here. Praying that Lucy has a good experience with the dental work, and all goes smoothly. And believe me, I understand about the TA frustration. Ours is with fundraising right now.

Tony and Rett said...

Praying for sweet Lucy...and for your TA to appear out of thin air, TODAY!!!!

Shonni said...

You are so cute! I just love you! When a woman is near the end of her pregnancy, everyone has compassion and understands that she is READY for the baby to come. So, I understand...YOU ARE READY FOR YOUR BABY TO COME!

christy rose said...

I will be praying for Lucy too!
Hope your day is going better!

I just wanted you to know that I got your package in the mail the other day. You are so sweet and wonderful to have made that pillow for your giveaway. It is adorable and goes great on my sofa in my living room. I took a picture and I am going to post it on my blog today and let everyone know that you made it. Is there anything you would like for me to add in my post, like if anyone would like to order one, or something similar, to contact you. I would love to do a shout out for you if you would like. I won't do that unless you get back with me and let me know. But I do want to show it off. :)
Hope you have a great day,

Lori, SO sorry about the TA delay :>( Let us know how Lucy's visit goes tomorrow, I imagine that you will be a wreck! Hey - which wall is that chalkboard going on in the schoolroom?????

Patty said...

Praying for Lucy, waiting to hear how it goes! And the school room looks great---could you send your hubby out here to build me one too cuz I just might need it........sigh. Ok hang in there!!
Its time to get our Laverne and Shirley groove back on.........

Elissa said...

I totally know what you mean about the "God's timing is perfect" encouragement when all you want is YOUR KID IN YOUR ARMS!!! Surely THAT is God's will!!

Praying for a TA tomorrow and peace in the meantime, and for the enemy to be thwarted in any designs he has on disrupting the uniting of your family!

quilt-n-mama said...

I have been thinking of little Lucy today, I hope all went well!
Praying for your TA:)

Jean said...

Wanted to leave a comment yesterday BUT my computer was acting up- it may have been because so many of us are trying to use the internet here at this house- the kids are hogging it!

Love your school room- yippee!! Glad that it is coming along slowly and hubby is working that paying job- praise the Lord!

Sorry about that darn TA- honestly you have been a saint for waiting so long. It is pure torture! Praying that it comes really soon!!
