It’s Friday and I am crazy excited the weekend is here. We have a very rare weekend lined up to celebrate Josh Kelley’s birthday. I cannot wait. I also have about 5 bazillion thoughts going through my head and heart today…and not just today, but this entire week has been so crazy thought swirling. I’m not typically an emotional gal. I take that back…I wasn’t before Mom died, then I got all crazy emotional about just about everything…I suppose death will do that…then I headed back to my more unemotional state. Clearly I thought you needed a little back story on my emotions. Ha. Anywho…this week I have been back on the tear train. Case in point: While walking at the park with a friend she told me a sweet story and I started to cry. <—– that is not me. I don’t cry while getting a power walk on, but alas there I was getting all teary. So it’s been a weird week, but weird in a good way.
Today I’ve spent almost the whole day cleaning out our house again. Purging and purging and purging. Every week I feel God peeling away my fingers and loosening my grip and I’m pretty sure we’re keeping the thrift/help center shop down the street in business. We’re on first name basis now. We are loving our house and new school and really all my past small house frustrations were really heart problems. Satan was feeding us lies…the world was chanting in our ears and he had us hook, line and sinker. And then we started hearing God more clearly every day…I am enough. The end. So we’re resting in that. He is enough. He is all we really need. Every week I take a sweep through our house and more stuff goes out the door and it’s incredibly freeing. We are a work in progress always…we will never have it all right, but I am so glad God is working on us…together as a family.
On a completely different note…does anyone else like Luna bars???? These are a recent discovery of mine and I may have intense text sessions about the different flavors with my friend Merf, but Holy cow! I love these. If you know horrible things about them like that they are made of rat feces, please do not tell me. I don’t want to know, but what I do want to do is make out with each flavor. So flippin’ good. They are suppose to be good for you, but I’m always a skeptic…crossing my fingers I’m wrong…and for no rat feces.
Oh and you’ll never guess what happened this morning which made me curse like a sailor! You may remember we recently got a new couch and I put fierce rules into action about ZERO eating or drinking on it. Like ZERO. Like if I see you even lean against the new couch with a food or beverage item I will taser you. It’s serious. Well dang it all if Amon didn’t finish his yogurt, but secretly hold some in his mouth, then went and stood facing the couch and then sneezed blowing strawberry yogurt all over the couch. WHO DOES THAT????? He is the strangest child. Why hold yogurt in your mouth…why not just swallow it. He’s been doing this with some foods and water lately. I don’t get it. Our new couch officially has it’s first stain…and multiples because it was a legit sneeze. Yogurt everywhere. I’m still trying to work my stain remover magic, but it’s not looking good.
There were so many other things I was going to write today, but it’s already about time to get in the car rider line. Last thing though, we are still working towards our 5K goal for the American Heart Association. You guys have given so generously so far and we are almost to $1400. If you would like to still donate please head over to Amon’s page and use the “give now” button to make your donation. Also for donations of $15 or more I’m sending out “thank you” key fobs. After you make your donation just GO HERE and send me a message with your name and mailing address. I would love love love to send out more key fobs. We have until October 4th so time is closing in. And please feel free to share Amon’s page and his story.
Okay that’s it! Short and sweet and random. Here’s to a great weekend. Hope everyone enjoys it. And thank you guys for stopping by and reading. You are crazy nice.
