6 weeks and counting

Today marks six weeks until we leave for Africa. I can't believe it. It seems like it's still so far away but I know the night before is going to creep up on us quickly.

We got one thing done since we last spoke. we got all our vaccines (ouch!). I don't know how kids get those things done. They hurt! My left arm was out of commission for like two days.

Oh and funny story during. I'm not afraid of needles (blood is another story) and don't mind shots. I sat down, talked about what I was getting, all that good stuff. The nurse comes back in to give me my shots, gives them to me and then afterwards I start to feel faint and super dizzy like I was going to pass out. I was so confused. I mean, she was already done with the whole process... why pass out now? I must have looked a mess cause she went to get me a juice box (now I know how kids endure it.. those things are so yummy). I drank the whole thing in like 2 seconds flat and felt better instantly. I get up to leave and there's a huge wet spot where I was sitting. I looked at the doctor in terror and said, "I swear I didn't pee my pants.. it was the juice box!" I guess when I poked in the straw it came out and fell perfectly between my legs. The nurse who gave me the shot wasn't in there  so I'm pretty sure she thought I peed my pants. 25 and 'peeing my pants' at the doctor's office... embarrassing. I didn't actually.. I swear it really was the juice box but it felt like I had .

And of course, what's a post without a few fitting doctors office shots? Enjoy!


  1. Oh goodness. Its okay I always pass out at shots and its not during the shot its after. They told me it my blood pressure droping from relief that its over.

  2. Ha! Glad I am not the only one that gets all crazy when I get shots or blood drawn!! Can't believe you all are leaving in just a few weeks! God is going to use you in so many ways you don't even know yet! :)

  3. This makes me love you twenty hundred times more than I already do. Can't believe you're leaving so soon!! So proud of what you're doing and love how God is using you!


I love hearing from you :)!
