Our family is doing much better. We still have the parasite, but pretty much all of the symptoms are gone. We just need to stay faithful in our 'treatment' instead of stopping two days into it.
Life has pretty much returned to normal this week, which is nice since I love it when we have somewhat of a schedule. I even started Russian lessons again! They have been planned for weeks now, but kept getting cancelled. I seriously considered cancelling this time because we didn't get home from Wednesday night services until after 10 pm! Because of Wednesday night services Thursday mornings are always slow and not really the best time for a Russian lesson, but don't know where else to put it. We've had so many cancellations this week that I just couldn't cancel. Thankfully I was able to distract her. I love anything crafty...but I can't sew. Oh I can throw a few things together, but I don't know how to do it right. My Russian teacher also happens to be an excellent seamstress. SO now in addition to my Russian lessons she will be teaching me to sew! I will probably never cancel another Russian lesson, even if my brain feels like it's going to explode by the end. The first things she is going to help me sew are nightgowns for the girls. We've really been wanting those long, old fashion type gowns for them but I've been too nervous to try to make it on my own...besides the fact that I only have Russian patterns. I started buying a few patterns that I saw in Russian, but have been too nervous to try any of them yet because besides not knowing how to sew...they are in Russian.
Well, it is getting late here and I really need to be getting to bed. I want to be well rested so I'll be able to enjoy the pretty, fresh, wet snow with my girlies in the morning. Hopefully, it will not only still be there, but also still wet and not dry or icy. It made pretty good snow balls today and the girls have been talking about making a snowman for a while now.
