Stressful Times

I haven't posted in a little while. There is a reason for that. I have been trying to get ready to take my Texes exams. I took Mathematics 8-12 on Saturday (July 18) and EC-4 Generalist on Monday (July 20). I have spent the prior week studying as much as I could trying to get ready. I've had some distractions (see below) and honestly, its hard to teach yourself all the math you learned in high school (algebra, geometry, calculus, trig, and number theory). I got the results today. I failed the math test :(! What really sucks is that I didn't fail by much. I almost wish I had just bombed it! BUT I passed the EC-4 Generalist test!! Now just to try to find a job opening.

Well, we've had another round of ear infections. We are still battling it actually. I think Emma might have had a whole 3 days of healthy ears. Then "Super Cranky Baby" came back! She was so sick. It is so hard to see her like that. This time the doctor said that if her ears are not 100% better in two weeks (July 27), we are going to go see the specialist about putting tubes in her ears. I'm conflicted about this, but I know that they will make her feel better! I do not want her to feel this bad again if I can help it!
Here is Emma snuggling with her Daddy after her doctor appointment.

  1. Poor Emma and poor parents. My co-workers daughter had tubes put in her ears and she is doing much better. Keep us posted on how things go. I hope you all have a stress-free weekend.
