#1: I hate the new Blogger look. (Dashboard, Compose Post, etc.) I hate it all. And I usually reserve the word hate for things like airplane trips, dentist appointments and cleaning up dog poop off the carpet. So that should tell you how much I really hate the new Blogger look.
Okay, there. I got it off my chest.
#2: I get an iPhone tomorrow. I have no idea what I've gotten myself into by saying yes, but I've had so many people tell me my life is about to change, that I'm intrigued. Is this going to be one more "thing" I have to learn to put aside in my fight to really engage in life ? Or will this make my life easier? I don't know, but I'm about to find out.
#3: Lily is sick in bed with a fever. I absolutely hate (there goes that word again!) when my kids are sick, but I always worry a little more when Lily is. Are all moms of kids with special needs like this? Thankfully she is rarely sick...in fact, of all my children she's been the healthiest so far. But I think the fact that this has been a hard summer on our Down syndrome community is playing on my brain. We've been so fortunate (although I don't like using that word either) with Lily's health...there's a dumb little part of my brain that sometimes feels like we're waiting for the other shoe to drop - the one that is lying undiscovered in that stack of what-if's that comes with that "magical extra chromosome." So far the only way I've found to fight this...the dreaded what-if's...is by a) enjoying each moment and being thankful for her health and b) turning my brain to "whatsoever things are pure and lovely and holy and just." In other words- just taking things one day at a time and giving my fears to God. Just like I do with all of my children.
