If I didn’t know that my God ordered each of my steps, if I didn’t know that all things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose, If I didn’t know that He had a plan and a purpose for my life…..this week would have totally defeated me. I am exhausted, sitting here writing at 9 at night wishing my lights were turned out.
Monday started off okay until I picked my oldest up from school. It was her first day back and we were already dealing with middle school drama. For the LOVE. I dealt with the hormonal roller coaster for the rest of the night. If that were not enough, Tuesday started out with a bang, Literally. What is that you say?? Why yes, that would be my rearview mirror that I knocked clean off of my van while taking a call from my daughter’s headmaster about said middle school drama.

Picture this. I was turning up a street in my neighborhood to take my five-year old to school while I answered the phone. Note to self: talking on the phone while driving is not a good idea. Okay, so as I turned and answered the phone, a city debris truck was picking up debris. Debris on the left, truck on the right with absolutely no clearance for my van. However, instead of going another way, I decided it would be smart to inch by and see if I could make it. Totally could have made it, if I had just made clearance for my MIRROR!! Ugh…. So, 404 dollars later I am looking for a place to display it in my home since it did take all of my Christmas money to fix it.

Wednesday, I had an appointment with an orthopedic per recommendation of my OBGYN about my lower back. I have been having pain for about three months and then just recently found a knot that is totally freaking me out. He did x-rays and then ordered an MRI. Wednesday night, my 12-year-old got home from church complaining of severe stomach ache, sore throat and congestion.


Today, I took AK to the doctor and lo and behold we have strep!! AHHHHH!!! At 1:30 this afternoon I had my MRI. I hate those things. I had to have one that took an hour when I was pregnant with Elijah. The tunnel makes me just about have a panic attack. I prayed the whole time I was in there trying to relax. She didn’t tell me anything, but just asked me when I would be seeing my doctor again. I trust that God has this but I have to admit, I am totally nervous.

Tonight, my oldest has fever, feels rotten and won’t go to school tomorrow.

Tomorrow, the mirror gets fixed.

I am ready for the weekend and a fresh start. Thank you Jesus that each day is new and full of your mercy and goodness…

Good Night Friends.

  8. Yikes! That’s a lot going on at one time!! I hope everything turns out with your back, I hope your kids (and you) feel better soon! Oh and I hope the mirror gets put back on perfectly for you. =]

  9. Oh Kelli! Praying!!! What are they thinking is going on with your back? Arthritis? Prior injury? How does it hurt?

    • I don’t know. He thinks degenerative disk from the x-ray but wanted an MRI because of the knot to look into the muscles. The knot scares me, the other stuff doesn’t really :O) Thanks for the prayers friend! I didn’t find out anything today so hoping they will have the results by monday. As far as hurting, it’s my lower back. It hurts when I sit, especially on the floor or in slouchy chairs. I’m 36 this should not be happening to the point I need advil and a heating pad. The knot is movable but not round. So I think that is good? I am guessing it is muscle, not sure. Thanks sweet Shelly for the prayers. I could use them for the nerves! Have a great weekend.

  10. Praying for good results.

  11. Hi, Kelli
    Praying the result of your MRI is nothing. Be peaceful friend and I know you know, Trust God with all your heart.
