o·ver·whelm

  1. To surge over and submerge; engulf: waves overwhelming the rocky shoreline.
    1. To defeat completely and decisively: Our team overwhelmed the visitors by 40 points.
    2. To affect deeply in mind or emotion: Despair overwhelmed me.
  2. To present with an excessive amount: They overwhelmed us with expensive gifts.
  3. To turn over; upset: The small craft was overwhelmed by the enormous waves.

Today at a glance:
  • waking up in pain again - whiplash or not, it just isn't fun to be in so much pain
  • more rain
  • saying goodbye to Poppa and Grammy - our visit was too short
  • to the orthodontist for Dreamer - new appliance needed. More waiting.
  • saying good-bye to our friends who are leaving today for a new adventure in New Orleans
  • children to the chiropractor - more visits needed
  • my to do list :
  1. call the doctor re: x-ray results
  2. call an exterminator re: carpenter ants that are just showing up
  3. call the plumber re: new water heater not working properly
  4. get two more estimates for the van repairs
  5. order soil for the garden
  6. order mulch for the flowerbeds
  7. clean the house - bathrooms and vacuuming a must
  8. investigate the really bad smell in the furnace room
  9. investigate the really bad smell in the van
  10. schoolwork basics
  11. comfort two children who will miss their best friends
  12. pray for strength


In His grip,
Heather

  1. I'm sorry you have so much on your plate, and aren't feeling great yourself. I do hope that the pain leftover from the crash dissipates quickly, or that you can find relief from it. I do pray that God will grant you strength to keep going, and that He will bless your day with something special of Himself.
