For those that don't know, I had my sinus and septum fixed on Friday. After spending a miserable weekend with stints up my nose, I can breathe out of the right side of my nose. The pressure from my head that I have had for years has also left. Now I am just left to gain my energy back and to get the last of the stints out on Monday.

I can tell you that getting the first splints out on Monday was the most intense pain I have ever had in 15 seconds. They pulled out the stitch and then immediately pulled out the stints. I seriously lost every nose hair I had. Then I cried. It took a two hour nap to sleep off the nose violation. I pray I never have this experience again.

Nathan has done a great job keeping the house in order and the kids happy. Tomorrow is the first day that I will be on my own. I am thinking Lincoln and I will be playing a lot of board games.

Bob sledding

Each night at our house the kids get "robot rides" from our bed where prayers are said to their bed. Robot rides come in all shapes and forms. This week's robot ride has been bob sledding. Nathan holds them in a sitting position in his arms and runs them down the hall and back to their bed. The kids love it. Tonight Avalee wrapped herself in her blanket and said "I have my uniform on now you can go." I wish I would have had a camera.
