Relaxing weekend

It is a gloomy, rainy Monday morning here today. It does feel like spring though! Evie is outside playing, despite the rain. It is about 60 degrees outside. We didn't get to go to church yesterday because I wasn't feeling very well. I think I got really run down, and I wasn't sleeping very well, so I started to fight something. I am feeling better today.

Jeff gave me a much needed break this weekend. It was wonderful. He watched Evie the whole weekend and just let me rest. He took her on Saturday afternoon to his friend Steve's house. Steve and his wife have 5 girls (3 of the girls are triplets who are 6 years old), and Evie had an absolute blast. They stayed for several hours. While they were gone, I watched a whole bunch of episodes of the Dog Whisperer that we had gotten from the library. They were great! I had never really seen any episodes before. I had just watched some stuff on Youtube. I found it to be really helpful, and I started using the techniques on Sie-Sie. It is working! I am going to try and be really consistent with it. Evie watched an episode later with me, and I was teasing her that I was going to use the techniques on her :). On Sunday morning, Jeff brought me breakfast in bed, and let me rest all day. He is so sweet.

I have a lot of baking to do today. Evie must be going through a growth spurt. She is eating about every hour! I am running out of things to feed her, so I need to make some stuff. I made some popovers (which she and I both love, and they are gluten free/casein free), and I am going to make her some gluten free/casein free bread. I am also going to try and make some muffins if I get a chance. I also need to finish the homeschooling. It is going to be a busy day. I am praying that God will give me energy today!
