Another day in the life of...

I have just woken up from one of my several naps during the day. I try to do something (wash, dishes, a walk), and then usually I am ready to rest for a while. People keep reminding me that I am I will accept that. This has been a good week. I am so thankful to be feeling better. I have gone walking with my dog every day, and try to go a little farther each day. I am hoping to get back into working out at the Piper Center next week.

Since I am not being dehydrated by my sickness, it is amazing how much better I feel--more energy, not so tired, etc. I am thankful for medicine, and hope I won't have that nasty sickness again. I have actually gotten some reading done this week. Even with a bunch of books to read, I have not had much desire to read--it even takes energy, and I didn't seem to have that.

Yesterday was a pretty crazy day. I had to go to a meeting for my oldest daughter, Jodie, who is handicapped...and it went for 2 1/2 hours. That just totally drained me. Then we had another one that night--all I wanted to do was get home and relax. I really do need breaks.

Well, the great news of last weekend was that we are going to have another grandchild. Our daughter, Emily, is expecting in May--and we are thrilled at the thought of another grandchild! I still haven't downloaded my pictures--but the weekend was wonderful, and it has been fun to think of the happy memories of that time together. (It is also very nice not to have to keep any more surprises from Spence--that took a lot!!) Love to all, Louise


  1. Hi Louise,

    Just wanted to let you know that we think of you often and I'm pretty sure you are included in every prayer we say. Max (who is 3 now) is especially insistent that you are never forgotten. "What about Aunt Louise????" he will say if we forget. Max said our morning prayer yesterday and asked for a blessing for you and then included, "....and tell me if Aunt Louise is better, yes or no". After the prayer he said. "I think the answer is no, so we have to keep praying." Sorry this is long. Just wanted you to know that we are sending our love and prayers from NC.

  2. Hi Lindsay,
    Thanks for your cute post--so fun to hear about Max! I know every one of those prayers matters--so tell Max to keep it up. It is so good to hear from you all. How thankful I am for our huge and caring Price family. :)

  3. Such happy news that you are feeling better Louisa and such happy news about Emily! With all you were going through last week, I don't know how you kept your birthday surprise a secret from Spence. It must have been such a wonderful weekend for you all. Much love to you!

  4. So glad you are feeling a little better...after all you have to be ready for Thanksgiving! I'm so excited for you and Spence and Emily - for a new addition to your family. I hope you have a restful and fun weekend...looking forward to seeing the birthday, Janet

  5. Congratulations to you and Emily! How wonderful to have another baby to look forward to. Keep pacing yourself. I'm so glad you are feeling better.
