Busy is all I can say

While I enjoy my children and husband they sure keep me busy. I have not been feeling well this pregnancy, keep thinking I am trying to get the stomache bug going around but I think it is just the pregnancy. But as you mothers know we do not get a time out. I do have a great husband though that does help out but still there is always so much to do. I almost got overwhelmed yesterday. I never seem to get my list completed of things I need to do anymore. We have one son who is a bit trying, okay okay he is alot trying sometimes and lately he has been really trying us. Not sure why, guess it could be because he is turning 12. But he is not doing well in school, does not want to listen unless it is history or science. He HATES math! He only does half or less of what he is suppose to do in chores,etc... you get the picture. It makes things so much harder and really really frustrating. He is the one we have so much trouble out of, he is the one that drains me daily. I LOVE him to pieces though and could not imagine my life without him. But his twin is the exact opposite(while he is sneaky with the things he does) he does do really well in school and really listens. He does his chores just like he is suppose to. Does exactly what you say when you say it, works really well with his father,etc.... IF all our children were like that oh how much easier it would be. But i suppose it would be boring as well. LOL! I know God has something huge planned for all our children and that is why they are made the way they are but sometimes it really really wears on me. sometimes I just want to scream and say I do not know what to do anymore.
GOd has really blessed us so much lately. With a new addition on the way I was wondering what we would do for another bed once the baby got out of the bassinet. I knew we would figure it out,so I was not stressing but I like everything to be just so and planned out if you know me so I was thinking about it. Well Saturday morning our neighbor called me and asked if I knew anyone who needed a crib for free. Keep in mind I have NEVER in my life talked this woman. We have waved in passing but that is it. As long as we have lived here we have never talked while passing, never called each other,etc... but she called and asked. I was like are you serious. And she said yeah. So I explained to her that we were expecting again and wondering what to do. She told me she had temporary custody of her grandchild and he would not sleep in it anymore she got him a twin bed to go beside her bed and so she wanted to give the crib away. I was just dumbfounded. Hubby went and picked it up yesterday. This crib looks brand new. So pretty! Had a mattress with it, so we do not have to worry about that. Gave us the bedding, crib sheet, tons of baby toys , a lamp,and some CUTE blankets. There is nobody that can make me believe God does not provide!!!!!!! He does and he is so good.
I hope everyone is doing better financially. My husband's business is slowly picking up and we are doing pretty good. I know some are still really hurting and you are in our prayers.
