My Sincerest Apologies

Friday, October 17, 2008

Updated:  After 2 hours at the doctor this morning, I found out that I have a sinus infection and "early pneumonia."  I so wish Dave were here so I could crawl in bed, read blogs and magazines and rest.

I am so appreciative of all of the thoughtful and supportive comments you have given me over the past few months.  They have meant a lot to me.  I do feel guilty though.  I have not been very consistent about checking in with and keeping up with all of my bloggy friends.  And for that, I am so sorry. I am trying to catch up but I know in all honesty I probably will not be able to catch up with everyone for a few weeks (or a month).  It will likely be after we climb out of the mountain of moving boxes.  I just wanted to apologize and tell you all that I miss seeing what is going on in your lives.


  1. I don't think you need to explain or apologize for anything right now! Certainly everyone who is following your story understands and knows that your efforts and energy need to be focused on your own family (and on yourself - don't forget to take care of you!) right now.

    Have a good weekend!

  2. Girl, we know you've got your hands full. We miss you, but we'll still be here when you have some extra time. I can't wait for you to be able to settle into a new home. Things will be much better then!!

  3. Your so sweet to think of all your bloggy friends at such a busy time in your life. I just want to say that it's been great getting to know you and I love your honesty:) Good luck getting settled into your new home and we can't wait to see pictures etc. Have a great weekend:)

  4. I just hope you are feeling better real soon - sounds like you are so busy you are getting run down...take care of yourself!!!

  5. Take it easy as you can! Hang in there and be good to yourself! If you're like me, you want everything done and settled asap...but it will all be there tomorrow, or the next day or even the next week! Will say a prayer for you~

  6. Oh, how I wish you were still here so I could bring you some magazines and some chicken noodle soup! Feel better...I will try to call this weekend~

  7. oh Kim, I just want to bring over some chicken soup and watch the Peanuts for you tonight. I am so so sorry. Bless your dear heart.
    huge hugs and prayers

  8. "He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." Isaiah 58:11

    Read this and prayed for you! I pray God "strengthens your frame" and meets all of your (and the rest of the family's) needs in this "sun-scorched land"! =)

  9. I wish I could send you some chicken soup over the interwebs. Rest up to the extent that you can. If I were in charge of the universe (darn it,but I'm not) I'd cut you some slack at this point. It seems like it's been one thing after another for your family.

  10. You just take care of yourself sweet friend.....we all have our hard times....obviously I am not getting to blogs like I use to either.....I'm so stressed....I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers....

  11. OMG - You poor thing - early penuomia! You so need a break! You rest and then relax! You need it :D Hurry home Dave!
    Ladybug hugs,

  12. Kim,

    I don't even know what to say other than how sorry I am that you have been going through all you have. It's like one thing piles on top of the last and no wonder your not feeling at all well under all the stress.

    We are all here thinking of you, saying our prayers and cheering you on (just as you would, and have, done for us). I cannot wait for you all to be settled in the comfort of your new home. And as everyone else has said, too bad we are only friends from a cyber neighborhood. If we all lived in town, you'd been inundated with soup, magazines, babysitting offers, and care packages.

    Keep us posted and get well soon!

  13. Kim.
    I'm so sorry you're sick. Especially while you're trying to get packed and moved...UGGH. If I lived anywhere near I'd offer to help =/. I'm sure everyone here knows you've got your hands full right now, no apologies needed, I'm just looking forward to the day you finally get settled in to your brand new house..can I get an Amen on that?

    Gin =)

  14. You have NO need to apologize for not being able to read everyone's blog, I am so thankful that I can peek in your front window and when you have the time you can peek in mine (although mine is not as exciting as yours). I am so sorry that you are sick and your husband is not there to help, but Will is such a wonderful young man and I know he is stepping in to help his mom out in a HUGE way. Will is going to make a WONDERFUL husband for some blessed young lady. Once you are moved, unpacked and life is back to some normalcy, life will be much better for everyone!!

  15. Apologies are the last thing you need to worry about!

    Get well soon....try to get som rest and I hope the doc gave you some good meds!

    Take Care,


  16. Kim- YOu don't have to post this. I just wanted to stop and say thanks for visiting the blog. I have actually been following along with yours for a little while as we seem to travel in the same "circles".

    I just wanted to send you a BIG ol' hug. You have SO much on your plate right now that you just have to feel like you are going to burst. Give me one thing you have on your plate, and I might pop. Yet you are able to handle it all and still get out of bed in the morning and find time to deal with tantrums with Grace and humor, (and pnuemonia..);)
    You have a lot of change right now, piled on with transfering the stress your kiddos are dealing with from the change onto yourself.. and thrown in there is a tantrum every now and then... a car accident.. injuries... prnemonia.. sinus infection... YOU ARE DOING GREAT!!!

    Saying Goodbye to a home you loved is hard. Saying goodbye to friends you adored is hard. Saying Goodbye to a school system you felt was a good match for your kiddos is tough. Saying good bye to a life you loved... is so very hard. NO matter how you slice it.
    Then throw in a hard transistion... and all this added stuff... it can be overwhelming. I encourage you (though I have a feeling you are already doing so ) to lean on scripture.Lean on HIM. I feel like sometimes when our lives get so crazy and we are overwhelmed we sometimes spend less time with HIM because we are so busy trying to fix everything that is going wrong. when that is the exact opposite of what we are supossed to be doing. It is times like these that serve to remind us that we CANNOT do this alone Nor are we supossed to. He wants us to lean on him.. to turn it over to him. As our Father, he wants to take care of us. Yet, sometimes we don't let him because we are too busy trying to figure out how to get ourselves out of it.

    So I encourage you to make more time in your day to just be still. With HIM. Take everything on your plate and give it to him. every concern, worry, issues.. just lay it at the cross. Turn it over to him and let him know you get that you cannot do this with out him. then just be still and see what HE says.

    Okay... so longgest comment ever goes Just wanted to say.. Hang in there. You are doing great. And continue to seek HIM, even deeper and let him carry you. If you ask, he will show up.

    On a less serious note, :) You oldest reminds me so much of my son David who is 12. Such a sweet heart.. and becoming so independent. I am So going to get that book you recommended in a few posts back. Sounds like a must read.

    Okay.. I really have overstayed my welcome... Anything else you want to chat about?lol.

    Thanks again for coming over to say hello.. and for sharing your beautiful family with all of us through your blog!

    You will be in my prayers!


  17. I hope you feel better soon.
    Sorry to hear this..
    Wish I was there to help you out.

  18. Feel better soon! I am glad you had a laugh at our crazy family. One great thing about blog friends, everyone seems to understand that our own families come first. Just jump right in and have fun when you can. NO GUILT!

  19. Kim -- You poor thing! When it rains, it pours! I hope Dave will be back soon. I hope you are feeling better soon!

  20. Bless your heart! If we were closer we could do that together. Will sounds like he's been taking good care of you. Is he good with a can opener? Can he open you a can of soup?

  21. Oh, you poor baby..... I will be praying and hope you feel better soon!


Thank you for your kindness.
