OK…a little birdy told me my posts have been a little "DOWN" lately. Then, another freakin birdy told me that I need to perk up. Alright, enough is enough…the meds are the culprit! Sheesh, friends! I kid, I kid.
Outside my window...I hear an annoying barking dog. NO…its actually NOT my annoying, barking dog…right now anyway – be patient…give it time, tho.
I am thinking…that – I sure do LOVE the mornings when hubby takes kids to school. its amazing how great a quiet (well…except for that blasted dog barking) house can feel. Its clean, too – BONUS!
I am thankful for…my husband – really…I am. He has been 'my guy' since 1986ish…how do I ever forget how COOL that is? This summer we'll hit the 15 anniversary mark…we laugh tho, bc that is NOTHING to use…try '23 year aniversary' for more accuracy. He rocks. Really. He does.
From the kitchen...glazed ham/cheeee sandwiches baking for Bible study lunch today.
I am wearing...leopard print house shoes (they match my 6 yr old's), my cashmere robe (bc my mommy loves me and got it for me a few years ago), and my 'b team' pjs. dont tell anyone tho…its a little embarrassing.
I am creating...um. A blogging masterpiece?? How about this – a new day filled with hope, healing, and a SOLID effort at doing what God wants me to do.
I am going...to the shower after I finish this…dogs will follow and lay outside the shower. Most times it requires some muscle to move big Duke out of the way when I'm done. THEN, he goes to lay in his crate bc he dreads the 'get ready' routine…it usually means I'm leaving soon.
I am reading...the 4th vampire book, screwtape letters…and Hebrews. Hmmmmm…maybe I shouldve changed the order around a bit, eh?
I am hoping...to quit trying to get it all done…I'm trying really hard…really. I need to CHILL. I need to listen. I'm trying…I asked Him today "please save me from myself" on the advice of a very special friend who totally has me FIGURED OUT.
I am hearing...a great song – No Christmas for Me by Zee Avi (its on the Brushfire Records Christmas cd/aka, Jack Johnson's label)
Around the house…there are a few dog bodies – apparently naptime comes early today. Hmmm…its clean, too. Great day…starting off right.
One of my favorite things...up early, by the fire w/kiddos.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Hmmmmm…today: bible study, Thurs: Chi O Christmas market, Friday: Twilight movie…sounds simple, eh? Well, thats the IDEA…truly, there are too many things to type, but I want to keep it simple. I want to start each day w/that prayer "protect me from myself"…begging Him to keep my answers to "I'd love to, but I'll have to pass this time." and focus on taking care of my peeps, my home, and me. I have to get back to THAT first…the rest (YES even Twilight movie) second. Its never easy…no one ever said it would be, right?
