I haven't a clue why I'm so exhausted this week, but I am. I'm having many Hashimoto moments.  Time for a bit more self-care me thinks. 

Today was a 3 trip to base day.  It looks like tomorrow will be too. 

Gym. Feels like sludge this week, but I'm burning calories, upping my distance...has to be good...regardless of what it feels like. 

School. Discovered that we somehow misplaced Year 4 Redesign of our we have books but no syllabus. ::snort:: 

Worked on local Fall Rally. It turns out that I'll be speaking at two sessions of this. Pray for my dear friend, Renee. She and her sweet boy are heading home to spend some time with her family.  Her Dad could use your prayers for a healing touch. 

MOPS Kick-off! This means fall is in the air. Always fun to get a baby fix and spend time with young moms. I'm a MOPS Mentor Mom (member too come to think of it). 

Roast wasn't done in the 30 min we had between MOPS and Japanese we had our lesson. We spent quite a bit of time talking about our upcoming road trip. I think we're nearly ready. I hope. Akikosan promises to be our GPS. 

I ran to get Jared from football practice. He hung out at the library after practice as he was done in the middle of our lessons. 

Back home - everyone but me has eaten. I'm too tired and think I'll skip it. Eating is over-rated. 

All are heading to bed. I will too. One last thing......Akikosan brought hanabi for us tonight!

Fireworks! She read the directions for us. How cool is it that Japanese children put fireworks off any ole night of the summer they take a fancy to? I asked what festival the fireworks were for and she said, "No special day. We put them off whenever we like in the summer."

 I love it. My kids love it. We're armed.....but she stressed to get a bucket of water first.....

I wonder why you are tired and sluggish........... quit being like I was and just slow down and your are right think of yourself.

Will be praying for those you asked for. God is able and we will believe.

Bet you can't wait until Jared can drive but did I hear right in that he can't drive off base?

Praying for all concerned and all the different things that they are needing to do, being involved in and etc. Would sure love to see some of your kids football games etc.

OK, off to the races and will catch you later.

love/prayers -- Mom T.

I am a MOPS mentor also. We have a kick-off next Tuesday. Love to get to see the moms and babies. My youngest grandchild is almost five. We've started great grandchildren, have two and one on the way.

Actually, when I think about it, our grandchildren are about the ages of your children, 25-5, so I am much older than you. Just had another birthday, but I'm not worried about it. I am so blessed and happy that the Lord has given me another one. We just celebrated our 49th anniversary a few days ago.

Love your countdown ideas.
