Thank you Lord

Yesterday felt like a very long day. It started out on a bad foot and seemed to just get worse as the day went on.

I woke up later than I wanted to in order to get H and J to Summer Academy which meant we were all rushed trying to get ready to go. The kids function even worse under pressure than I do so that made getting out the door lots of fun. On top of that it was raining. That meant that I wasn't going to be walking with my new friend which really bummed me out as I enjoy spending that 30 minutes talking with her in the mornings.

I returned home after dropping of H and J, put a load of laundry in the washer and had just settled down with a cup of coffee to catch up on emails and attempt to work on the church website when I got a phone call from Summer Academy. I won't go into details but lets just say that I had told J that if he had any more problems in school that he would not be returning the previous day and now he does not get to finish summer academy. The initial prob…

Wecipe Wednesday

Hope that everyone is having a great week! It's been pretty good for us so far. Monday and Tuesday my hubby was able to get home from work early, which meant we were able to spend some time together. (Yeah!) The kids are tickled because we went to a friend's house Tuesday and they got to play in the pool after Summer Academy. (Thanks so much for inviting us over and feeding all of us! We had a great time)

Baby A didn't much care for the pool though. I think she might have been okay if I had gotten in with her, but me in a bathing suit is not a pretty sight right now! I pulled mine out of the dresser and tried it on. The top of it doesn't hold me in as well as I would have liked, and the bottom of me is LOTS bigger than I picture it being. Time to get serious about the weight loss thing.

Okay, those of you reading this I need you to chime in on something for me. Hubby and I were reading a Bible trivia book with the kids. It says that David killed Goliath with a sword no…

Monday Musings

I sit here attempting to type one handed as baby A has recently decided that the only way to go to sleep and stay that way is in mommy's arms. I know that this is a habit I will come to regret, but they are only little once, and she looks so sweet sleeping!

I took my laptop today to see about getting it fixed. Baby A decided when she started walking that it was great fun to pull the power cord out of the laptop as I sat working on it. As a result the connector inside the computer is loose and you have to do this wonderful wiggle jiggle thing to get a good connection to get power now. I took it in to the local repair shop and the gentleman there said that "if" he could fix it, and "if" he didn't need to order anything it would cost about $60-$100 for labor. This seems a bit steep to me as I only paid about $400 for the laptop new 4 years ago. Needless to say I thanked him and took my computer home. Perhaps I can locate someone who can do the work for less. If…
