Today was NOT a productive day at all. I took care of my niece Olivia and my nephew Carter today. It was a wet cold day so I had them cuddled up with a blanket watching the Incredibles. The second picture of Olivia is from when she was here on New Years Eve. Doesn't she have the best hair? If she was my girl she would hate me because I'd be wanting to play with it all the time. Who knows...I may get a grand daughter. I bet I have like a 20%/80% chance. (that George gene doesn't allow for a 50%/50% shot) I totally forgot what it's like having little kids around. You don't get anything done, and they were both really good. I can't imagine if they'd have been bad. I guess I really got use to my freedom and forgot how to juggle and multi task. Big high 5 to all of you moms out there with babies and toddlers. You're my hero's!
I really really miss my truck. I miss it's small size, I miss it's good gas mileage, I miss the AC, I miss it telling me what song is playing and who sings it. I am just terrible with that kind of stuff. I won't miss the payment!
I like that my suburban is paid off and it's a big safe vehicle to drive. I'm grateful that I didn't let Mark sell it last month, even when a guy was on his way over with cash that we really needed. I just had a feeling and I stuck to my guns. If I hadn't listened to that feeling, I wouldn't have anything to drive now. I told you I'd find positive things.
So glad I'm not the only grown up who breaks out and who deals with a dirty house and mountains of laundry.
I can't believe I've cried everyday for a week...it's SO NOT like me!...and I've been a whiney blogger and you still come back and offer your friendship to me. Things are still really rough, but I'm not going to let it consume me. There really are blessings in every trial and I won't ever see them if I have a negative attitude. It's all in how we handle the trials, right?! It felt good to take dinner in to my friends family. I made lasagna, salad, garlic bread and vanilla chip cookies for them. They are the neatest family and I know they appreciated it.
My 2 day job of cleaning up my scraproom is going to be crammed into Saturday so that Sandy can come over and scrap with me Sunday after church. She is so excited...so am I...not only to scrap, but to have a clean room!!!
Terri....I saw that you have Chad's care package in March. I wanted to let you know that his birthday is March 25th. He is also going to Afghanistan that month. We still don't know when exactly, so I will let you know as soon as I hear.
I promise to catch up on blog reading and emails. I haven't had a lot of computer time. I feel terrible when I get behind. Have a great weekend ladies!
