What a CRAZY weekend!

Friday night we had a party...which was SO much fun. We love having people over and hanging out with them. We played Guitar Hero, MadGab, talked and ate. It was fun getting to know some newer people as well. I wish that our house was bigger so that we could invite EVERYONE we know, but until then, we have to do parties in smaller quantities. I mean we still had 20-30 people in our little house. Not too bad.

Saturday was a seriously weird day. Dave woke up with a major migraine, putting him in not such a stellar mood. We ran errands in the morning. Were planning on going to paint our own coasters (a fun family project!), but Noah had an accident before we got there and just fell asleep. So we headed home only to find that he had another accident. This proceeded all afternoon. He would pee just a little every 5-10 minutes. We went through quite a bit of underwear. I finally called the doctor and she said that it was bladder spasms...and to put him in a warm bath to help soothe his bladder and well, to empty it. I did that, and it seemed to work.

Meanwhile, Dave's day continued to get worse because I accidently downloaded spyware thinking that it was actually an antivirus software program. It had the Windows logo and everything. The only thing that had me hung up was having to pay and a registration number. I didn't do it and decided to ask Dave what the deal was. This would explain why we are having such issues with our computer lately. It took him over an hour to get it off and run all our ACTUAL virus/spyware scans. I'm not sure that did his headache any good.

So although we missed a birthday party that afternoon due to Noah's potty issues and other stuff, we were also invited to go swimming. We decided that Noah was doing well enough at this point to go. His mood had at least improved. It turned out to be a lot of fun! We went with two other families. Noah had a blast. When we got out of the pool, got dressed and Dave was going to buy Noah a snack. He reached into his wallet to pull out some cash and realized that all his cash was stolen. He had just put some in there before we left, but there was a basketball game going on at Faith and a lot of extra traffic. So, someone got $26 from the Yenerich's. Ugh.

However, the day turned around again. We went over to our friend's house to have pizza and had a great time talking and playing Apples to Apples. The night ended well.

Sunday, I was super distracted at church with a ton of different things. It made for a very interesting morning for me. Noah continued to have potty issues during the day. Dave had two vet calls. One for a vomiting dog of one of our friends and another for one of the technicians in Thorntown whose dog was having puppies. Both turned out to be minor.

Sunday night, we had Clear Vision. It's a time where the leaders of the church get together, eat dinner, get refueled, etc. Anyway, last night God was really moving...especially in restoring people: both physically and spiritually. Many people got prayer. A friend of ours recently had surgery on her ACL. She was still in a lot of pain. Dave went back there along with some others to pray for her. They prayed for her, she stood up, and felt no pain. Then...she started walking...without a limp! It was awesome to see God's healing power on her. I always believe that God can heal, but it still blows my socks off when I see it with my own eyes.

This morning, Dave woke me up to tell me that Chester was in a lot of pain. He did something to his neck, although we are not sure what. The poor dog has been moving carefully, and not doing much. If you get too close to his head, he winces. It's heartbreaking. Dave brought home some painkillers for him and we are trying to keep him away from the kids just to give him a break (Noah likes to climb all over Chester).

Meanwhile, Noah was STILL having issues with the potty: Having to pee 3 times in 30 minutes. We ended up taking him to the doctor because Dave was concerned that this was not normal. It turned out to be bladder spasms. I probably don't need to get into the details, but it's fairly common when they are first learning to potty train. She gave us some things to try with him. Hopefully we can get things situated soon. Really though, I'm not overly surprised to have a hiccup, since he did so well training in the first place.

So, that's our weekend.

Oh I wish I could have been at the party and seeing healing!! Clear vision is so much cooler than deeper (our monthly meeting to go "deeper") I want to come back ..... Miss you!

Wow! When it rains it pours! Hope your week is less eventful.
Also, I'm curious if the Dr. said whether bladder spasms are more common in boys or not. We didn't have any of that with Madison, just wondering if I'll have to look out for it with Josiah.
Have a great week friend...miss you!

sounds like a crazy, busy, fun weekend! I love to have parties.. and yeah.. I always try to cram 40-50 ppl in our house.. it gets a tad cozy. I am hoping it gets warm soon, so I can use the backyard! isn't apples to apples a blast? we love that game.. so I am curious, where you went swimming in February?? we thought about doing buckaneer bay on sat.. but never got around to it!
I hope Noah's 'potty' issues end soon for all of your sakes!
