Not such a good month

Geez, Aimee decides to go on a mission and all hell breaks lose on the Holloway family!!! On the 16th, our 23rd anniversary, I ended up in the ER with an accute allergic reaction to something I ate. I still have no idea what it was, but suspect the peanut butter no-bake cookies (my brother is severely allergic to peanuts). The next week Dave ended up home with a sinus infection. I ended up having a bad reaction to the meds the ER doctor had me on for the allergy reaction, that ended up causing my fibromyalgia to kick into high gear. That next weekend I ended up so sick I couldn't get out of bed but to visit the toilet! Now this week Dave is sick again, I think it's food poisoning from something he ate over the weekend. Can we ever catch a break?

Dave did have a job interview the week he was home sick. We are praying like crazy that he gets this job, so far we haven't heard anything. The job is in Belgium, yes back in Europe!! We REALLY want to go back!! His job here is a joke, a co-worker treats him like crap and the supervisor does NOTHING about it!! He comes home EVERY night and complains, stresses, loses sleep and dreads the next day. I sure hope he gets another job!!

Aimee is still working on getting her stuff done for turning in her papers for her mission. We were hoping she would be able to go into the MTC in June, but it looks like it will be a bit longer than that. She has to have three wisdom teeth pulled!!! She is amazing!! Her whole attitude has changed, she is so much more calm and patient!!

I'd DIE if I was allergic to peanuts. Literally. They are my staple.

Also... I thought your husband was military? How did I get that idea?

Good luck on the job getting thing!

Hye Pam-i am so sorry that you satan had decided to wreak havoc on you guys! THe same thing happened to me when I decided to go on a mission! But of course, the blessings will for sure outweigh the crap you get from the "angry one!" I hope things look up and you guys get what you want and need. Love ya!!

Sounds like a really hard month. I am really sorry to hear.

Good luck with jobs, mission and just life in general.
