Some might wonder what I have been up to of late. If you are in this grouping of "some," you are about to find out. Others may not really care what I have been up to, and for those others... well they can just skip over this entry.
Last Monday I came home from visiting Jake&Rita and Jubilee. I spent a week with them and had a wonderful time. The reason for the trip all out-of-the-blue, was that Rita was sick and Jake wanted someone to hold Jubilee and make sure Rita rested and didn't do too much. So I said I was willing to sacrifice a bit of my time to go and hold my niece and be bossy to Rita. It was supposed to be work, but I just enjoyed holding da baby, and getting to visit with Jake&Rita.
Since I was there from Monday to Monday, I was able to go to church with them. I love their church, and all the people there. I went to Jake's in-law's house for lunch and found out I am bad at ping-pong. I lost to Jake and Chris at ping-pong several times, but I got within 2 points when Jake was playing left-handed.
After church I went to the Akin's house to visit and play Halo. I had fun chatting with Mrs. Akin, Abby, Susanna and Clair. Clair was playing one her brother's handheld video games and sort of mocking it while we were chatting, it was a lot of fun to listen to.
Abby made sourdough bread and beerbread the night before, so we snacked on those while chatting, and they were delicious. I may have had enough to actually call it supper, it was just that good.
We played a game called Fusion Frenzy until the Matt and Caleb got back from Men's Forum. Then we played Halo, and it was so much fun. We played for about an hour to an hour and a half. Jake was actually patient and waited around a while for us to finish. Jake took off of work early to drive me to St. Louis, Missouri to fly home. Jake&Rita dropped me off at the airport and went to visit Granny.
I have been at the Littlefield's pretty much since I got back. Emma is doing better and eating and drinking, so she doesn't have to go on IVs anymore. If you are wondering and I haven't said, Emma is 8 and has cancer, and I have been babysitting for her family since before she was born. So that has been rather hard lately. But we have been praying and will continue to do so and would love it if anyone else would as well.
Last night I had a sleepover with Erin and Hannah Littlefield, I took Hannah to Pirates of the Caribbean 3 at 10:00 PM and then she spent the night. We were supposed to go with a big group and my family to an 8:40 showing, but Hannah was in a play and did not get done until 9:00. So Hannah and I just had a girls night. It was fun. She's only 14, but loves to read and is more mature than most kids her age. She would rather hang out with Erin and me and talk about books than with younger kids. Most of the kids she knows think she's weird for reading so much.
Well, that about brings us up to date. I'll write more if I remember to. Hope it wasn't too boring, I know I rambled at parts, I guess the "others" were smart to skip this post. TTFN!
