O.K. two things (or more) are consuming my life. I have a sinus infection that is so painful. I have medication for it and I hope it starts working soon. I took some hydrocodone last night for the pain and it didn't touch it. So I'm not sure why people steal that because I felt nothing.
And secondly, I finished Twilight and now am into New Moon. I cried through Twilight and have been sobbing through New Moon. I don't think that itself gives anything away except that it is extremely well written on how the author, Stephanie Meyers, describes her characters and their feelings.
I have decided when I grow up I want to be a literature teacher. I know these books are written for Tweens. But honestly, I don't know if they get the depth of the characters at that age. I think that's why I cry. Or maybe I just am trying to relieve the pressure of my sinus infection.
And to reminisce, this was the week that I found out that I was pregnant with triplets 3 years ago. I still sometimes can't believe I have triplets. Or four kids for that matter. I feel like moments of my life have been fast-forwarded and others are on pause.
Children are such a great gift from God. They are all unique and each present challenges and joys of parenting. One thing this season is that I have not been able to get my Christmas cards out yet, the trees are half decorated, no candy has been made, etc... I'm in the Christmas spirit due to Jacob coming home to school and singing his Christmas songs and learning his part for the program.
The important things about this season are all about Jesus anyway. I think Santa is a representation of generosity and good will and that is a very important lesson to teach the kids too.
Anyway, off to parent my children. Or make sure that they don't open the oven, the refrigerator, the child-proof locks, climb on furniture, dive from the furniture, throw their toys and beat on each other.
