The Lord has been teaching me some interesting things lately, but I need some time to work them all out in my mind....so in the interest of keeping the blog updated, here are some random facts (well facts might be too strong a word) and a couple of pictures of my boys. If you are here looking for some spiritual food, scroll down a few posts..........
~Went to Sam's Club last night. Took the hubs - big mistake. We came home with $239.36 worth of things to stuff our faces with. Two of my favorites are the 15 lb bag of M&M's and the 25 lb bag of Hershey kisses. Okay that might be an exaggeration of how much the bags actually weigh, but it is no exaggeration as to how much weight I will gain after eating said candy. Unfortunate to say the least.
~I have been outside all day today. I love this time of year when it is cool in the mornings and hot in the evenings. I really hope Jesus comes back really soon because my skin is probably not gonna hold out much longer. I figure when I am 40 people will assume I am 60 (that is if I don't die of melanoma before the age of 40). I really need to use sunscreen, but I don't -- I just don't.
~Instead of college, I wish I had gone to aesthetician school. It is cheaper, it only lasts a year, and I could perform much needed beauty treatments on myself.
~Have I mentioned that I have foot issues? I have spent years squeezing my size 7's into size 6 and a halfs and now the time has come to pay the piper (or the podiatrist) UGH!
~I dreamed about snakes ALL night last night. If you don't already know about my fear of snakes, go back a few posts to read all about it. It's too painful to re-type. I have this dream where I go out in my yard and there are snakes everywhere I step. Do you think my fear goes back to the garden? I am thinking I might end up in one of those programs - you know the ones where they put you in that white suit and restrain your arms and legs?
~This morning I had 15 errands to run. For the 9 years that we have been married, hubs and I have had the same routine in the mornings. When he works dayshift, he gets up at 5:40 and when he gets out of the bathroom at 6:15, he wakes me up so I can get into the shower. This morning he came into our bedroom (and woke me up from a dream where he had bought a snake and placed it in a fish tank - pray for me) at 6:50 and said, "Are you just gonna sleep until its time to get Lake up?" Huh? What? Who are you and what have you done with the husband who knows the routine? When I asked him why he didn't wake me up he said, "I had my mind on something else." Yep, we will probably both be in a program before its all said and done.
~I think I am up to about 50 Hershey kisses today. Might be a record - anybody got a Guinness Book handy?
~Has anyone else noticed that Nick and Disney shows frequently use the phrase "What the....?" We all know some words that would naturally follow that, yet they insist on putting that phrase in cartoons. What is up with that?
~I am sick of seeing/hearing Hillary (and Bill) and Obama. I wish the election were over already. Sadly, I predict that we are about to see Obamanation win.............Better yet, let's all pray that Jesus comes back before the next Presidential Inauguration.
~This week has been TCAPS for Lake. That is the TN version of achievement tests. They are a big deal. Much bigger than anything we ever did in school. The other night, Kaden told Lake he had to go to bed early because he had to take 'handicaps' the next day.
~A haiku for today (I know it doesn't exactly follow the Haiku rules, but its my blog):
My father in law owns a car wash.
We live right beside it. My car is filthy.
I am lazy.
~And here is yet another Haiku that also does not follow the rules (again - its my blog):
My house is dirty,
I play outside until dark,
I need a maid.
~I might have a career in Haiku writing.
~My sister's husbands niece was on Jerry Springer one time. Its all fake in case you were wondering.
Time to go back outside and play ball with the family (because one can never get enough fresh air, ya know). 'Tis T-ball season, fa-la-la-la-la-la-la. But first I need to stop by the Hershey kiss bag and eat #51.
