My week so far has been way too busy, just exhausting. I haven’t been getting enough sleep at night either, since Lesleigh was over last night and Monday night, late. I love visiting with her but I need to sleep…
My ear and jaw keep bothering me. I can’t open my mouth wide, which is really annoying when I eat. My jaw pops sometimes, and feels like it’s going to pop out.

I hope and pray that if God allows me to bring home another child my daughter will be as wonderful as Alesia!
Mother told me today that Alesia came up to her recently and said “Granny, you want to hear
the funniest thing in the world!?”
Well of course Granny did – and Alesia enlightened her:
“Mom READS in the bathroom!”
