This whole situation weighed so heavily on all of us. I begged God to help me stop stewing about it. Over a period of a whole week, He consistently answered that prayer with timely sermons. I begged Justin to listen to them. I even hoped Ted would listen to them since they helped me so much. I know they haven't yet, but Justin is doing better. Ted finally took a vacation, and I knew he would need to process everything including the unbelievable behavior that we endured. Unfortunately, his stewing got me stewing and losing sleep over it again. With so many unanswered questions, it's hard to just let it go.
  In the meantime, vacation has been good, but not looking forward to its swift approaching end. Puttered around the house, ran off to the mountains for a couple of days, helped pack up a missionary family heading to the field, and dressed up and went out on a fancy date last night. Tonight, we are going to check out some thrift stores and have a more casual date. With church activities the next two days, this is really the last day of vacation. 
It's hard work, trying to relax and not do anything. There is a huge list of things to do around the house, but Ted prayed last night that he and I would get some rest. I enjoy being bored since I so rarely have time to be bored. Ignoring all the projects is the only way to truly rest up. Today is the first day I have truly felt relaxed.
Until next time....
