Outside my window...it is gray and wet. Not a good day for dog walking.
I am thinking...about how to keep my dog from peeing in the house while it rains. I am also thinking about the AWANA meeting that I will be attending tonight, my friend who had a new baby yesterday, and how to celebrate our 13 year wedding anniversary this weekend.
I am thankful for...the last 13 years, even the really difficult ones.
From the learning rooms...we are back to school! It is going really well, though in true back-to-school fashion, the kids have caught a cold. Germs do not discriminate between public and home schools.
From the kitchen...tonight I will be serving pasta with bacon and peas, one of my favorite dishes. The husband will pick out the bacon and avoid the peas.
I am wearing...my glasses, so I hope no one comes to the door.
I am creating...a stack of note cards on which I have written all of the verses I need to memorize for AWANA.
I am going...to the gym, even though I don't want to, especially because I don't want to. Flexing the old "self-discipline muscle." If it gets strong enough, maybe it will push away the brownies.
I am reading...Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions by George Barna.
I am hoping...that fall will set in soon, and that my grocery store will start carrying canned pumpkin soon. I NEED some pumpkin in my life...pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin bread, pumpkin yogurt.
I am hearing...the fridge humming, the dog snoring, my fingers tapping the keys, and my brain chattering.
Around the house...things are so neat and clean :) I love it. Yesterday I went to do laundry and didn't have enough for a load. It was strange.
One of my favorite things...my parents, who will be home exactly two months from today...for good.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Getting cable TV, which goes against my personal convictions, but not enough to not get DVR. I am so mainstream. We will also be cleaning Mom's house for Brother (ewwwww), walking the dog too often to mention, and (hopefully) going out to eat for our anniversary WITHOUT the kids this year (last year we took them with us).
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
Almost 13 years already?
Love you, Husband.
