Using another Page Maps (Becky Fleck) layout. This was a lot of fun to make because I remembered Nick loving Audrey so much and calling her 'his baby' then wanting to take her home. Well just over a year later he got his very own baby sister! ^_~
And now for the drama. This past week has been pretty scary for us. Earlier this month we didn't receive about 1/3 of our income. Well long story short it's due to some missing forms to change his major and Paul is making calls every day for the past two weeks and just getting the run around as he tries to get all the info he needs to get this fixed. These last few days have been really scary because it was starting to look like it wasn't going happen and that would mean he wouldn't be covered at all through this semester AND he would have to change his major to something he didn't want. So he's stressed out and I'm stressed out and we both do what we do when we're stressed out. Paul is grumpy and holes himself up in the bedroom to try and get things done all the while telling me it's going to be okay. I try to keep things going as usual and when he feels like things aren't working out I tell him it's going to be okay and then both of us are just worried out of our minds while the other isn't looking. I cried. I cried a lot. I cried while he was at class, while taking Caitie to school, on the way to the grocery store, I felt like a wreck and the worst part was that there wasn't anything I could do to help. We have not had a money crisis like this since before we had the girls and I was so scared. We have money in savings, but I was still really worried. Anyway, he finally got some other info this morning and sent that off. Later today we got the email back from his VA rep that they've got enough info now and the paper work is done and approved. We both broke down with relief and I told Paul about how scared I was and all the crying I did and he felt so bad because he was trying to make sure I wouldn't worry, but I worried anyway. -insert big heavy sigh of relief here- Anyway, that was my big drama for the week. I did create a little the past few days but had been so wrapped up in this that I didn't much feel like posting.
