What a week! It all started Tuesday night with incredible storms. I love storms at night, and I was glad we finally got rain, but Joshua woke up right before it got really loud... and couldn't get back to sleep for a couple of hours after that. I was sound asleep when the storms started, and I kept thinking the lightening was going to cause our battery to explode or cause some other serious problem. David brought a handful of hail in to show us from the balcony, and we gathered all of our emergency candles. We had about 4 hours of power in a 24-hour period, and for once, I thought that there was reason for it! (Not that a reason made it any more enjoyable!)
I don't know if I have ever heard hail that loud before; maybe I have slept through it in the past. All I know is that Joshua hasn't slept through the night since then! I felt pretty rested and compassionate until last night, and then I guess I reached the end of my rope. This morning we got up at 5, and then he took a 3 hour nap, so I am more optimistic that we will get back to normal over the weekend. I am thankful that God knows my limits! We hope that Joshua is teething; he has been unusually fussy. I might feel little teeth in the top and middle of his mouth, but I don't know! The doctor has mentioned that Joshua is teething the last two times we have visited, so we shall see. Needless to say, I am ready for the weekend!
