Excited & Anxious

Even though allergies from this early spring weather have been wreaking havoc on our household, everyone seems to be improving...despite the sneezes. We even went on a beautiful walk today down to the lake. Brian made it home safely from his Orlando business trip, and ironically I leave tomorrow for mine. I still can't believe we are traveling to the same destination one week apart. We've been talking about how we need to plan a real vacation together sometime in our future! 

I'm currently mixture of two colliding emotions...a combination of the excitement and anticipation of a Christmas morning on the horizon mixed with the apprehension and nervousness of a first day at a new school. I am very excited to be traveling to Orlando tomorrow with Kyani! However, as thrilled as I am to have this opportunity to learn and grow with my business, I am anxious about leaving my family. We are always together...unless Drake is in the hospital, but even then, I am still with him or Kennedy and Hayes. Being away from all three of them is what makes me feel a bit anxious, and of course I will miss Brian, too. Another cause for the rise to my anxiety is that we have a new night nurse starting on Saturday night while I'm out of town. *Yikes!* Anytime we have a new nurse, I like to make sure that they feel comfortable with Drake, the equipment, his schedule, medications, treatments, ect...Our day nurse has assured me she will go over everything with our new nurse at shift change, and Brian will be home to answer any questions and check in on everything. I know everyone will be in good hands with Brian there and Mimi coming to help!

Drake will be continuing his regular therapy schedule while I am out of town, and I am already looking forward to updates, pictures and FaceTime chats! 

I'm so in love with my little Valentines! 

Cutie pie!

Oh, what these allergies do to our household!

  1. So adorable,all of them. Prayers always for you and the family. May God continue to bless you.

  2. So jealous of the merry go round! It was my favorite thing at the playground. I'm glad the kids got to get outside. I have been out too. These East Texas allergies. They be tough on the little ones. Enjoy your trip. You earned it. I'm sure grandparents will be dropping in this week. I hope the time passes quickly for you. Then you can get home to those kiddies. Congratulations on your business being so successful. I noticed a truck with Kyani on it in Wills Point, yesterday. Stay. I'll be praying for all of you.

    1. Thank you! I had a wonderful time and I am glad to be back home. I love seeing other Kyani cars out on the roads! I can't say enough good things about the products, company & founders!
