He'll Carry You

This song came onto my pandora station tonight, and really hit me hard.

He knows your heart
He knows your pain
He knows the strength it took just too simply breathe today
He sees the tears that you cry
He knows your soul is aching to know why
He hears your prayers each humble word
When you said you couldn’t face another day he understood
He knows the path that you will find
Though you felt alone he’s never left your side

He knew there’d be moments when no earthly words
Could take away your sorrow
And no human eyes could see what you’re going through
When you’ve taken your last step and done all that you can do
He will lift your heavy load and carry you

He’ll bring you peace and leave you hope
And in the darkest night he’ll comfort you
Until you know the sun will rise and each new day
You will have the strength to live again

And when there are moments when no earthly words
can take away your sorrow
And no human eyes could see what you’re going through
When you’ve taken your last step and done all that you can do
He will lift your heavy load and carry you

He hears you when you’re crying in the night
He hears you when your soul longs to find
Till the morning will come
And the light of the dawn reassures

That in the moments when no earthly words
can take away your sorrow
And no human eyes could see what you’re going through
When you’ve taken your last step and done all that you can do
He will lift your heavy load and carry you

unleash the wet noodles

I hate credit card companies. I mean. HATE! Now and then, however, I fall prey to the enticing SAVE MORE to open one. I recently allowed myself to play stupid and open one at children's place. Last month, I made a payment in store, and guessed where my payoff was. I got home, saw the statement and realized I was off. So, I called in to make another payment. The only thing I hate more than a credit card, is carrying a balance on one. I make the call, give the information, and get a verification code. Fast forward to yesterday. I get this weird call from a machine telling me to contact such and such company about my account. That's weird. I just paid that off. So I call in. The girl tells me I have a balance of like $135. JIGGA WHAAA? She does some digging. Turns out there is a late fee, returned check fee, and all random fees. I explain that isn't possible as I made 2 payments in one day to zero out the account. She sites off the information that the person who took my payment entered. The girl added a 1 to the end of my account number. Making my payment invalid, and therefore late. Thankfully, she realized that none of that was error on my end and zeroed the account. Now, on one hand. I realize that anyone can make a typo. There are several in this blog post I'm sure. What I don't undestand is how they would just allow fees to pile up on top of each other instead of calling me when the payment didn't process. What Craptastic company. Needless to say, but I'll say it anyway, my days of using a Children's Place Card are over! not that I won't shop there, I just will do it without their incompetent card services.

I got home tonight from a shower and my family is gone. Not the outcome I expected, but I'll take it over screaming house any day. Is that wrong? I got a call about an hour into the shower. All I could hear was screaming, and Chris saying to come home as soon as it was over. I wasn't too excited to hear that, so I hung up without responding. I got a text about 2 minutes later saying never mind and that he had things under control. As I was holding Camille's adorable little Owen, Marilyn asked if I was getting baby hungry. I answered with an affirmative and almost angry...NO WAY! My 3 year old keeps me grounded when it comes to that. I used to want 5 kids. Now, I know better.

I had a lot of fun tonight. The Heiner girls are so much fun. It was beautiful with Orange, Yellow and Lime green everywhere. LOVELY! I was in charge of the word search. I thought it was a fun idea to create it in a heart shape. It made for a challenging game. Ally ultimately won! She is hardcore at Shower games. I am almost positive she wins at every family shower.

Natalie P looked awesome. She's inspiring! {YOU ARE} I'm ready to start working out again. It's been a very lazy few months for this body. I have 2 weddings this June to be HOT for. haha ok well...I'll settle for luke warm.

Ok well that's all the brain power I have left for today {or this week most likely}

Yesterday, or was it two days mom came up to Ava and sang her this song. It totally describes how the last month of our lives have felt.

"Gloom, despair and agony on me-e!
Deep dark depression, excessive misery-y!
If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all!
Gloom, despair and agony on me-e-e!"
It seems the past month, each one of us have had a week of yucky sickness. Chris had a bronchial/ear infection and then Ava got croup, and then Simon got a wicked ear infection. Ava is also terrified of having bowel movements, and that is causing her to be very sick as well. Her digestive system is screwed up big time. She's not eating more than once a day, and has lost a lot of weight. I'm taking her back into the doctor tomorrow in hopes of getting some answers. This will be the fourth time we've been to the doctor in the last 3 weeks. I'm grateful for my job and the wonderful insurance that Inwest provides. It's still expensive since we're on an HSA, but considering the amount of illness our family has had this year...worth every penny. So, needless to say, I've been exhausted, annoyed at life and feeling quite sorry for myself. When my mom belted the song from HeHaw it made me laugh at myself. Thanks mom, for giving me some perspective.

I'm in a reading mood. Maybe it's because I've been trapped indoors thanks to the nasty cold weather we've had lately. Indoors and without playdates to keep us from sharing germs. I look forward to finding a good read. Enriching my mind. etc. etc. and warmer days and no longer needing to watch the same 10 movies over and over and over and ...
