Happy Wednesday evening to everyone!!
I wanted to tell you all a few stories on my past weekend and what I’ve been up to this week.
So First, on Saturday I went snorkeling for the first time. I got to wear fins, mask, a snorkel and lovely yellow life jacket around my waist! We had two groups, one lead by Sam and the other Joe (both who work at the Dive shop) My leader, Joe, took 7 of us out to the reef (the waves are super big out there, but they get smaller as they come into land) I saw some coral, blue fish, yellow and blue striped fish, big and little ones. I felt like I was doggy-paddling for most of it as I don’t swim that great, which made me super thankful for the life vest, even if it was around my waist. I got a taste of salt water in my eyes, and felt the sting in my eyes. So then I was thankful for my snorkel and goggles.
Once we got back to the boat after swimming for about 40ish minutes, everything began to roll. I tried drinking cold water, but my stomach would not settle and neither would the boat that kept bobbing in the water. I finally laid down and felt better. The 2nd group lead by Sam came back and they drove us out to another sight to go snorkeling. I was exhausted and couldn’t keep myself upright, so I laid down again and fell asleep for thirty minutes. We then drove back to the island, where I mentally kissed the dry ground!
Sunday morning I woke up to find out that my roommate and another staff member are now dating!! After much giggling and contrats, I went out with my three new friends (Mandy, Jeremy and Adam) sailing. We got off shore and had the first wave crash over us and I learned why I shouldn’t bring my phone with me when sailing. Not want to risk it getting soaked, Adam stirred us back to shore and I put it back in my casita. We went back out into the water. It was very relaxing when waves weren’t splashing all up me! I enjoyed it a lot though.
My last story happened Tuesday. Faith is currently being potty trained. When I lay her down for nap, I have to put her diaper on backwards because she knows how to take it off. Unfortunately, she learned how to take it off, when it was on backwards yesterday. I had a small mess I had to clean up and after using a thousand wipes to get Faith and her crib clean, her dad came in and gave her a bath. (Yes mom’s, you can give me any life tips that might work for potty training, this is my first time really going through this…other then helping mom/babysitting a couple times) I will like to add that we started a reward system with her, but have yet to see if it’s doing anything.
And lastly…myself! I believe it was Monday, someone (don’t know whether on purpose or accidental) poured gasoline into the water pipes. Then to clean that out, the poured bleach down to clean the pipes. And no one informed Heidi of either of those liquids. I only had a sip, but it seems to be enough to send my body into shut down mode. In the past three days, I’ve been having an achy feeling in my arms and legs. And the lymph nodes in my armpits are swelling, which adds a little more pain. This morning during breakfast I was getting super chilled so when I went to nanny for the day, I took some medicine. Since taking that, I have felt much better and haven’t felt bad at all. I’m hoping tomorrow afternoon (on my time off) I can take a nap and try to kick this infection.
A random side note…I haven’t worn shoes in nearly 10 days! My brothers would be so proud!
As for prayer requests pray for:
- Health as I get over this infection
- Patience in the potty-training process
- Continue to seek God about the future.
- Finding things to be Thankful everyday.
Any questions?? Want me to write about Something?? Let me know!! I’d love to get new ideas 🙂
