Today started out beautiful and warm. Mr. Cardinal and his girlfriend were hanging out once again in the backyard. It was just one of those mornings that you knew it was going to be a good day- full energy and life. My kiddos woke up happy for the most part. David slept in later than normal as he has caught a cold and he had a hard time sleeping last night. Jada's numbers were good this morning and she slept well last night.
We spent the morning doing school and then Jeff called. He was working a split shift today and wanted to take us to the restaurant he is training at. So, we picked things up and headed off to eat lunch. Eating out can be difficult- more for me than Jada. She got to eat grilled chicken and broccoli while the others ate pretty much what they wanted. It didn't seem to bother her. Jeff ordered chips and queso as an appetizer- and I cringed. But- she didn't even ask for one chip. Every once in a while, I could see her eyeing them- but never asked. I was really proud of her for abstaining on her own will and not having to be reminded or turned down if she asked. Jeff did end up giving her a couple of chips.
We got home and I took the boys down to the Arkansas river. The city of Tulsa has a trail system that runs along the river and the boys rode their bikes while I tried to keep up with them while walking! The weather was perfect- mid 70's with lots of sunshine.
When I got home, Jeff headed back to work and I was going to get busy and fix dinner. The phone rang and it was our landlord- she was bringing someone over at 7 p.m. to look at the house!! Uh oh. It was 5:30 and I needed a clean house and needed to fix dinner. There was no way both of those things were going to happen. I fed the girls cereal (shouldn't have done that with Jada- she paid with a BG of over 300 at bedtime) and the boys helped me get the house in order. We were ready on time and the girls were even ready for bed by the time they got here!
The house is quiet and I am tired. The kind of tired that you feel after a good day. Jada ran high tonight- but at least I know why this time. We've got a lot of interest in people renting our house and I think we'll have someone to lease this house before we leave. I'm not at all anxious about it. I wish every day could be like this.
