Where did that mountain of Laundry come from?
What can I do with the TV short of throwing it off my roof (a friend once did this). It just saps so much of my energy saying no so often. Do I change my no from yes alot? Why do they think it will help to keep bringing it up. Well, I must admit that "It's not the same without TV" song that Abigail wrote and they all sang to me in unison was quite clever, but it didn't change my mind, either
What a gorgeous day today. We dont have too many of these up here. We should be outside having fun.
"GAAA!!! Mom, fat cat is under my bed!" (Fat cat is a nasty neighbourhood cat that likes to come in and terrorize bubble and squeek) "Samuel stop chasing that cat with the drill" Elaborate chase (minus the drill), fat cat reluctantly exits via office window. "GAAA!!! Mom, fat cat left something behind in my room!"
"Chaos comes quickly" in the Jones household this summer. How can we go from reasonable order to absolute chaos so quickly?
I have got everything organized for getting the family to Shetland and sleeping at a campground. What was I thinking when I said I would do this. Bringing all the kids (well all but one) to this conference that has nothing for kids. Am I insane? maybe I should have thought this through more before committing.
I am so proud of Elizabeth, they have already walked so far, (tonight in Belorado). Not even any blisters yet. They are now in Belorado. Elizabeth has even started making friends with others along the way instead of being so shy.
Thanks Tamara for applying that generous amount of shimmery pink lippy to my lips. Hmmm. Yes, what a girly statement.
Love reading "Ruthless Trust".
Quote from first chapter, "Abba, into your hands I entrust my body, mind, and spirit and this entire day - morning, afternoon, evening, and night. Whatever you want of me, I want of me, falling into you and trusting in you in the midst of my life. Into your heart I entrust my heart, feeble, distracted, insecure, uncertain. Abba, unto you I abandon myself in Jesus our Lord. Amen."
Each year gets harder to memorize. I think I would like to memorize this and pray it every morning. I don't like the idea of "vain repitition" but it isn't vain repitition if you mean it.
Oh no, I cant take a picture of my mountain of laundry. I forgot to ask Andrew what he did with my camera before he left last night, I think he accidentally brought it with him.
No, I am so sorry gingernuts will not go with the tuna.
