Ear infections. Amoxicillin or no?

Matthew has a slow week. We are excited. I look forward to time with the love of my life.

My house is a mess. It was so clean yesterday! I think the definition of housework should be: futile.

We have found a new venue and disparately need it. Church was so packed this past Sunday I don't know that we could have fit one more person. Not one. We move to a new place that will easily fit 250. It was a crazy process but worth it and perfectly timed.

I got new strings for my guitar. I miss playing... my fingertips miss the frequency. (I hurt typing!) I sat down today with a song that I played a lot about 8-10 years ago... I had the words and the chords right there and couldn't remember the melody. I knew in my head how it was... but just couldn't sing it. I played the chorus at least 10 times (the part I did know) in hopes that it would jar my memory. (I'm talking about a song that I actually even performed in front of people!) Man, I wish having children didn't kill brain cells. What will I forget after our next child (which isn't any time soon... sorry)? Will I forget Amazing Grace? I'm heading down that road... too quickly.

We are having a women's tea this upcoming Saturday and I'm playing ... my setlist: Shine - Jan Krist and Gently Lay your Head - Jill Phillips. I wish my fingers could endure more.

I'm going to try and find the camera for a couple of shots that were taken recently.

Blessings dear friends.

that's wonderful, chrissie! i'm so thankful that your ministry is growing and you're busting at the seams, so to speak. :)
i was hoping that my depleted brain function would return after the childbirth, but i guess not, eh? hmmm... a cause for concern. :)
wish i could sit in during your tea time.

How are the ear infections? We usuallly go the amoxicyllin route but there is now stuff OTC that helps take away the ear pain pretty well. Is Matt meeting with the Philly pastor group this month? Might we see the Koerber's anytime soon?

Congratulations on the expansion of your church family :) Keep up with the playing, I wish I could hear you play a song. We miss you guys.
