indoor fort building at the rec center.


Sean and I had our once a month date day.  Tori, Addie, and Ellie came to watch the kiddos all morning, afternoon, and evening.  It was so nice to have that day with my husband to reconnect and build a stronger marriage.  I got a mani/pedi, Sean got us Starbucks and Godiva, and then we went to The Island in Pigeon Forge.  There are cute shops and restaurants there.  The music was obnoxious though.  Then we went to dinner at Sweetpea's in Knoxville.  :)  I'm still thinking about our day together and it's Monday now!

Unfortunately, father's Day wasn't as good.  I couldn't even serve my husband coffee when we woke up because the outlet was dead.  Then he took me to the ER for chest pain that I've had on and off since June 1st.  Its varied from being constant to intermittent to not at all.  Sometimes it's really painful and sometimes not.  Sometimes it goes down my left arm and into my back.  Sometimes it's positional.  Sometimes my fingers are numb.  Sometimes it hurts to take deep breaths.  Well, chest x-ray and blood work were normal and EKG showed a nonspecific T wave abnormality.  MD offered admit and stress test, but we decided (with my FIL's wisdom) to just followup with my PCP.  Sean and I are thinking more muscular and/or stress and anxiety.  But I'm glad we ruled out the BIG stuff.  Today I haven't felt much pain at all and I am thankful to God for that.  I have been stressed (overwhelmed) with trying to manage being wife, mother of 6, keeping up with the house,  cooking, laundry, errands, groceries, friends, family, church, etc, etc, etc.  Sean and I were able to talk a lot about that on our date and he's on board to helping me stress less and enjoy all my blessings.  I'm on board too.  :)
