When I am not blogging I talk to myself...

So we survived the election, although for that whole day I felt like I was waiting to hear news about a new world disaster.  Matt voted libertarian, I chose to abstain, but feel like a dork for doing so. On Tuesday I heard several good reasons for voting each way, but in the end I just felt like the path of our country is already set, and I do not see how my one vote would change that, especially since I live in one of the reddest states in the nation. I know that people say that by not voting I have no right to complain, which I am fine with, I do not plan to complain, I plan to treat this president the same way I have treated every president before him, with objective and honest open mind. I think the most important thing a person can do for their country is to remain informed about the important issues on all fronts, concerning the nation and the world. When talking about this country Matt and my conversations have drifted to the end of times more than once, and I really do think that some of the things that are happening point to that effect. This does not really bother me, I just wish I knew more about what the Bible says is going to be in the end of times, I wish I knew what I believe. A wish I plan to rectify by some appropriately directed study. It also makes me wonder why I never heard one sermon on the end of times while growing up? Just to clarify, I do not think that Obama is the Antichrist or anything silly like that, as some Christians are fond of saying. I actually think he is going to be a good president, but I do believe in him doing things that society thinks are good, he will be moving us more towards the fulfillment of the inevitable. It makes me wonder why at this time I am so driven to bring children into the world...? Okay, enough stream of conscience, I am annoying myself. 

Things here are going pretty well. Camille has discovered that she LOVES to roll over, but hates to be on her belly, which is pretty frustrating to us all. We put her on her play mat with her toys over her and she gets so excited that she rolls over, and then gets angry when she cannot see her toys, it ends up being a vicious cycle of excitement, rolling, crying, flipping....until none of us even like the play mat anymore.  It is fun to watch her development, she is exploding in an all out uncoordinated frenzy of activity.  She still absolutely refuses to take the bottle, which gets more frustrating by the day. My mom is bringing her to me to feed her in the parking lot, which is both embarrassing and dangerous, embarrassing because I have to breastfeed my stubborn baby in the parking lot, dangerous because I am working with a ton of people with various extremely contagious, antibiotic resistant infections, which could easily pass from my clothes to her delicate immune system. I live in fear, and that is certainly not good. 
Erdman Repair and Remodel is the official title of our new family adventure. Matt has several roofs lined up for the near future, which is totally exciting! One of them is a HUGE roof, which described in Matt's words, "if it were any steeper it would be a wall." They are going to have to use ropes and stuff, so as not to fall to their death, again, fear, it is my constant companion. This roof is for a person that goes to our church, so we are branching out past family members! Please pray that word of mouth continues to get us more business. Matt is constantly thinking of new ideas, to sell "rich ladies their fat asses back to them," I laugh, but only in a serious way, because I really do believe that someday one of his good ideas will become department store soap.

Kelly needed to add the line that makes me laugh about her breast feeding in the parking lot. Her conversation with Camille goes, "baby, I'm a professional, stripping in the parking lot to feed you stubborn baby." So now I fondly refer to her as a "professional stripper"

delicate immune system my ass! She's a breastfed beast! She'll be ok, just don't take her in to lick any of your patients. :)

Grace finally agreed to take a bottle when we got the nipples with the biggest holes (the milk basically flows out of that sucker like a fire hose). Now we just have to find babysitters.
Glad to hear Matt is staying busy!

By the way, Dr. David Jeremiah has been doing a study on end times prophesy. He's a preacher one of our stations carry. I know he's recently written a book, something like "What in the world is going on?"...several of the Christian organizations are saying it is very good. Might be worth checking out.

I am reading that book "What in the world is going on?" Not very far into it as of yet but I will share it with you when I am done. You can listen to Dr. David Jeremiah on 1010 am here kelly and he is on before you go to work. Just get on their website and it will give you the times.

Hey, I completly understand where you are coming from with the rolling over issue. Nicholas still can't roll over from his belly back onto his back and he gets so frustrated. Secondly, an idea about the breast feeding issue. After a long day of wearing a shirt, don't wash it. The next time your Mom has to do a feeding have her put your shirt on and have her hold Camille close as if she was going to breast feed her. Camille can smell you on the shirt and might be more prone to take the bottle. This idea was given to me when I was trying to wean Zachary. However, Adam wouldn't wear my shirt so I don't know if it works. It sounded like a good idea to me.

I didn't vote either :)

I wish I could see the video's you post - for some reason, I can't...

I hate fear so much and yet it seems to be a pretty constant companion to me. Most of the time it's helpful for me to repeat verses about how God is good and has the best planned for me. But as I type that, it sort of sounds like self-help babble.

Anyhow, I hope things with Matt's business continue to take off and that you have a beautiful weekend :)

You should get a little leash that attaches to her back. That way when she rolls over you can just pull the leash to roll her back to the right side up.

You could even modify it with maybe a little pulley that hangs over the mat. Baby cries, pull the rope, baby cries, pull the rope...
