MIA, but not out of action.

It seems like forever since I have blogged. I promise I haven't died or given in to the attempts to let negativity take over my life!
So much has been happening. I am crazy busy at school. The Cheerleaders have their first Gala to perform at today and I had to get everything ready for that. Had to sort out uniforms for them after the person who would have made the uniforms let us down at the last minute. (The story of my life lately ) It is amazing what you can find at Mr. Price Sports when you have to. LOL
Anke has been for a MRI on her knee to determine the damage and after waiting for more than a week for the results they finally came back with the worst possible news. Her ACL ligament that was reconstructed last year was torn again and she will have to go for another reconstruction as soon as possible! I don't think I have seen my little (22yo) girl cry like that since she was about 4. This means the end of Netball to her (that is, as a player, she will always be involved as a coach and umpire!). Sport is her life and when you are young it is hard to imagine the end of a dream.
On Saturday she went to the physio and had the leg strapped so that she could play an Intervarsity Waterpolo match against the University of Pretoria. Her team won, 15 - 5. The dr. said that she didn't need an ACL to play water polo, so she went ahead and played, crazy child! Now we are playing the waiting game again. We are waiting to hear if the medical Aid will pay for a second op in just over a year - if not, we have to find R70 000. We are waiting for the water polo season to end and the university holiday to start. Then of course, we are waiting to hear when the National water polo team is going on tour and whether she is in the final team. The team will be announced after Curry Cup in April. I don't know how to pray any more, so now I just pray like we were taught in the Bible: "Your will be done, Lord."
Juan moved out and I am missing him terribly.
I am packing 120 kits for the papercrafting week at school at the end of the month. Who would have known it is such hard work? It seems to be never ending.
I have made a few cards for friends and because I STILL don't have a camera, I can't show you.
The fundraiser I started for the little under 8 Baseball team has raised R3000 and a couple of bats, helmets, mitts and balls. So now I have to find somewhere to buy the kit for them too!
Then of course, my refund from mr.taxman was payed into the wrong account (go figure!) and I have to try and sort that out today, so you see, I haven't forgotten to blog, I just don't seem to have any time.
