Please pray for the Tinkel's...especially me! It has been a wonderful day. Joshua's football game was this morning and grandma came all the way from Oak Ridge to see it! Although his team lost, Joshua did great. Afterwords, we all went out to McDonalds and some of Joshua's teammates showed up. They had a fantastic time playing in the play place. This afternoon, we went to a birthday party at the state park and again Joshua played with friends for about an hour before we had to leave for yet another party (this usually does not happen to us - what a day). This time it was a pool party/barbecue. And mmmmmmmm was it great! Our host is a professional chef and gets things on wholesale. How about pure Angus beef hotdogs for the kids and lamb steaks...yes I said LAMB steaks and vegetable Kabobs for the adults. Joshua had a fantastic time in the pool. Overall it was a fabulous day and Joshua, on his new (actually old) medicine was our sweet Joshua once again...until we got home.
He is tired out and having a meltdown. As I write this he is yelling that he hates his life and that this is the "worstest" day ever. Typical, tired, busy day, medicine has warn off, Joshua. And I have a review to write that was actually due yesterday! Thankfully we have a three day period that we are allowed to post it so I have until tomorrow. I am tired, I can't think straight - especially with a child that is having a meltdown, and I am just not going to try right now. I'm going to set my alarm and try to get it done before church.
So, pray for me. Sunday's are always long days anyway and we are planning on going to Grandma's after evening service for a couple of days to celebrate labor day. Please pray that I will get it done tomorrow morning. Actually, compared to the last three weeks, life is pretty good, so I can't really complain. It's just one of those things that happens. It's just another one of those nights!
