So we're still kicking. I've started writing a couple of posts, but often once I start writing I feel better about whatever I was writing about and am able to look at it and know that I shouldn't post it. But we are here.

ClaireBeth came home. YEA!!! She come up to my underarm and has humongous feet, but still. She finished 1st grade and I have her registered at school here already. ZoeBel and Vee are going to a great preschool and ClaireBeth is joining them for the summer.

We tried a new church today. I loved the sermon and music but we'll have to see about the kids' stuff. I think ZoeBel's was the one I was least happy about. The teacher was there even after she'd traded for the week off and was kind of complaining to the lady that was taking us around right in front of us. And she was older. After having an awesome kids' ministry with a lot of younger, energetic women I'm not used to the more straight-laced, by the book classes. Maybe Rana (Pastor's wife and head of the elementary age group at FSD) should come do some consulting!

I'm still at the same office. It's still Doctor and myself, though she's having someone come in Wednesday to try out. We just get swamped on days when we do all fillings and crowns and the like, as opposed to cleanings and stuff. I've been there for four months and officially hired for about three.

Eric and I went to mediation to figure out a visitation schedule and came away with pretty much exactly what we were already doing. It's really just his work schedule that's the problem. But we're trying to work it out. We go to court tomorrow to get guidelines pretty much for all the other junk. We'll see how it goes. I had to take the day off, but at least I might get to sleep in or get some stuff done tomorrow before I head down. I have a few errands to run and am having lunch with one of the best women I know, who's also leaving in July for Virginia/DC. I love how God provides strength and love in the form of people during the storms, I just hate when they're called somewhere else. Thank goodness we live in a time of facebook, email and skype, though.

As to the apartment, I'm finally feeling like I'm getting somewhere with unpacking. I had to take all of the girls' books away, though. The living room's not done, but it's getting there. I still have some boxes of random junk, though. But I'm getting to the point where I want to rearrange everything. I'm nuts, I know.

So I'm off to fold/hang some of the six loads of clean laundry I have yet to do. I really do miss blogging and checking in on all of my friends that blog as well. Facebook is a demanding mistress. But...So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good-bye; Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu...
