Today was a good day. I don't want to go into detail, but I got to see the Lord be faithful to me again! I'm so thankful!
Also, I'm excited about Thursday. I was asked to be a substitute for the 1st grade. I will teach the kids all day by myself. Jocie is in that class. I'm thrilled to get to do that on Thursday!!! I love working at the school.
Spencer has Safety City tomorrow! So fun.
I'm really excited about the BFW. The whole thing feels so healthy.
Randy has been doing a ton of remodeling. He has flipped houses for the last 6 years and hasn't done a whole lot of remodeling during that time. Right now with the economy people are a little scared to buy a new home so they're fixing up their current home instead. Randy has been staying very busy with this. It's kind of exciting to see how his name is getting spread.
I had a doctors appointment today and I weighed exactly the same as I did 2 years ago. Of course I would have been happier if that number was lower but I was pleased that it wasn't higher.
Today when I picked up Jocie she mentioned something about a birthday party today for a boy in her class. I told her that I didn't think we were going to that and she started sobbing. (This is not her usual behavior at all!) I thought she was just disappointed about not going to the party, but between sobs she said, "It's...Just...That...I don't think...That Anyone Else...In First Grade is going to get to go...And I just don't want Tanner to be disappointed!!!! OH my goodness! Her heart was so sweet and pure that I thought I might just cry myself. I know that I've desired to go to parties before when I thought no one else was going to be able to go. The party is at Mr. Gatti's. I called Randy and told him the situation and he said we should go. I've got a bunch of free kids buffets so we can get out of there pretty cheap. I love that she was concerned for Tanner. She's so sweet!
I've started myself a thankful list. I'm desiring to mediate on the wonderful things God has done for me and not dwell on the one thing I'm waiting him to do.
This weekend I'm going to have the "Triplets" all weekend. My brother and his wife is having their anniversary out of town so I will have 2 three year olds and 1 two year old plus all my kids this weekend. WOW. They've never spent the night with us so I'm not sure what to expect.
I think Randy and I have all of the first 4 seasons of THE OFFICE memorized. We watch it in the evening after the kids go to bed a few nights a week. We have a little bit of wine and a little bit of The Office. It cracks me up!
My Dr. put me on birth control pills for at least one month (possibly 3 months) to help with some stuff. If you remember correctly...I don't have use birth control!!!!! He's got me on a double dose this month to get things in order. I hallucinate with Tylenol PM so I'm praying this medication doesn't mess with me. I'm not used to taking medication, but the Lord will be faithful to me I'm sure.
My Mom made me the best chicken salad this week. Man it was good.
Hairspray, the musical was so good. I loved going with my awesome girlfriends to see that!
Randy gets sweeter all the time. I'm amazed at him. I love that every year we are more in love than the year before. If I were stranded on a desert island and I could only take 3 people with me...I would pick him 3 times.
I rented a Spelling Bee DVD from the library. It had the final round of the national spelling bee on there for like 10 years in a row. It was so awesome to watch. I don't have any idea how they could spell so well.
Randy and the lady that does my hair trades labor! It's one of the best things ever! I get to have my hair highlighted every six weeks and never have to worry about if I have the money or not. I just keep track of how much money she owes me or how much we owe her. She does our whole families hair every six weeks and we don't have to spend cash on it!!!!
I love our life group. It has been one of my favorite things for about a year now. We've done life group forever, but I just enjoy it more now than I used to. I enjoy practicing hospitality.
Well, I guess that's all for now. Here's a sweet little picture of the girls.
