post from Sean: twins are cool and we need a fridge
I know what you are thinking:
"Having twins is already pretty cool, but there is no way they will look as cool as those guys."
And, you're right, but we can dream, can't we?
The reason I am posting is because we failed to get the word out on the very last thing that we need to get on track here in Virginia, a fridge.
We thought we had one lined up, but it fell through, so we are using a small dorm-sized one.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to make work since Katie is fueling two additional people, and almost everything turns her stomach, and with only room in the fridge for exactly: One half-gallon of organic milk, One half package of tortillas, One bottle of juice, One jar of salsa, One bottle of Steak Sauce, Ezekiel Bread, One quart almond milk (I am allergic to regular), a small block of cheddar cheese, Two Waffles, and... two short bottles of Canada Dry Ginger Ale(for Katie's Stomach.)
She is being a real trooper and eating basically the same three meals in rotation, dry life cereal, life cereal with milk, and raspberry fig newtons. All of these are washed down with 90% water 10% mango papaya juice.
Katie and I have been so blessed by everyone here in Virginia, we have been given everything we need to make it, and even more. We are humbled to be a part of such an awesome family, and grateful to God and everyone that has pitched in.
We believe that God wants us to be humble and just let people know what is going on, and what we need, because this is not the way we naturally are. (Katie actually is, but I really am not this way at all.)
So, we need a fridge.
