Now, you and I know this isn't right. My girls are US citizens and they deserve their cards and I need to fill my income taxes! This is extremely frustrating as I have to take time off from work with each visit. I pray for a solution to this situation.
I was able to find someone to work for me on Journey's birthday so I had the day off to enjoy with her and the other girls. I made the breakfast of her choice! After breakfast I took the girls to shop for Journey's gifts.
I left the girls in the movie/book section to pick out their gifts while Journey and I went to the front of the store to pick out a few things. I left Journey in the front of the store to look at jewelry while I went to check on the girls. The girls headed to the car while I paid for the "surprises"!
Kendall and Mackinley wrapped the gifts while Eden and Journey went to the orthodontist. They put stronger wires on Journey's braces and her mouth was sore which made eating her choice of tacos a little challenging!
We celebrated with a family dinner followed by cake and ice cream. The girls picked their own cards, one selected a card for a six year old and another picked a card for her granddaughter. So much for reading the card before purchasing! All the cards were selected for their covers. . .princesses!
One of the newer girls thanked me for "picking" her. She said that she was surprised to be "picked" and that she thought she would never be "picked"! Be still my heart! This child has the sweetest kindest spirit! I told her again how I was drawn to her photo and that I kept coming back to her! I told her that I was sorry that she had to wait so long and that I'm thankful God saved her for me.
In addition to Journey's birthday, an orthodontist visit, the puppies were spade and Mackinley and Eden had dentist appointments! It was a busy week!
I have finished my second week on Isagenix and I feel pretty good. I have lost 8.5 pounds and 11.25 inches. I like these results!
Until next time . . .
