Friday... with a big weekend ahead... but we'll get there
First, a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Julie!!!!
She's also getting ready to celebrate her 7th wedding anniversary... exciting times.
We love you Julie!!!
Hope you have a great day celebrating!
I leave tomorrow, along with 18 junior high kids
... we're headed to Anderson, Indiana for the Believe Conference.
We normally go in February to Cincinnati, but with the bridge being shut down at the time, it got moved. It is a longer trip, 3 hours (UGH) & its late on Sunday that we'll get home & I still have my 4:30 am wake up call on Monday.
So if you can pray for these things:
* Safe travels
* Good health ... it gets scary with that many kid... especially a load that gets car sick on a 3 hour ride (That's me included in that... Queen of Car Sick)
* My neuropathy to stay calm for the weekend
* A GREAT time ... drama free
* Most importantly - These kids to really have a moment with Jesus!!!!!!
So I now have sausage fingers when I run ... dont know what's up. If its a neuropathy thing or something else, but after about 2 miles, my fingers swell so much, the lines even disappear on my hands... & they even turn pale. WHAT.THE.HECK? I'm falling apart. When I stop, they go back to normal about 20 minutes later, but until then, they hurt & go cold....
Someone told me that maybe I've got too much water & not enough electrolytes so I should try a water pill. That does make kind of sense to me because it just started when I gave up my Diet Coke & only drank water & tea. Maybe I need to dose up on a Sports drink before? .... just another thing to add to my list of complaining....
I want to cry!!!
HOW did that happen?
When he went off singing praises to God?
Gave me chills
... & made me even more sad that he's gone
Go PHILLIP PHILLIPS
its who I gotta root for now
Got my first co-op basket. Yummy, beautiful strawberries, some swiss chard, some sort of onion thing - have NO clue what it is - & some beautiful lettuce. I get home & take the bag of lettuce out of the box, only to see a HUGGGGGEEEEEE spider in the bag on the lettuce. I dont normally let bugs bother me - but this one had a big red spot on its back. Red on a bug? Usually not good. So I took it outside & kept trying to shake it off. I ended up loosing half of my leaves... but the spider hung on. Tried to HOSE it off... lost more leaves on the driveway & the bug STILL hung on. So I'm down to half a head of lettuce with a big spider...
I ended up flinging him with my finger ... poor guy, I think I killed him. I tried to save him the whole time & with a flick of a finger - SPLAT... I tried...
Note to self - have a powerwash to clean my veggies
Anyone else think its crazy that Dick Clark, host of American Bandstand, and Don Cornelius, host of Soul Train, both pass away in the same year?
I spent many a Saturday morning dancing with my tv
... much as I do now with Dance with the Stars & So you Think you can dance
... some things never change
SPAT OF THE WEEK: Shower schedules
There are only 2 of us in the house
We have 2 bathrooms with showers in it
So tell me why everytime I get home from running, where I'm sweaty & yucky & nasty - THAT's the time that my sweet husband will say, "I'm going to take a quick shower"
So I just wait when he gets out & while I wait to let the hot water refill - I hug him extra oddles of time to rub my sweat on him
... I think of it as rubbing love all over him...
And just because I had to give one more shout out to the
Ridicously Photogenic Guy
Hope everyone has a Fabulous Fantastic Friday!!!!
