My New Kitchen

Do you like it?

Well, it's not really mine... yet.  And.... not really sure I would have this exact kitchen.... but, I'll decide that later.  Plus, what in the world is hanging from the ceiling?  I hope it's not something permanent.  But, really, it matters not.

I just wanted to tell you that I am praying for a new kitchen.  Do I NEED a new kitchen?  Well, certainly not NEED.  However, my oven is broken and it has to be replaced.  It is a super tiny oven and I cook A LOT.  To put in a bigger oven would mean losing cabinet space and I don't have much as it is.  Plus, I think my house was built in 1965 so the cabinets are original.  The stain had worn so much in some areas that the wood grain was showing.  We tried to paint them and while we did it totally by the books, it is still chipping... they look awful.

God loves to give good gifts to his children and he tells us to pray about everything... so, just thought I'd tell you how I was praying.

Just so you don't think I am shallow, I'm praying about lots of things right now:
1)  The right treatment for Paul and his Hep C- (that he got from blood transfusions when he had Aplastic Anemia at the age of 12.)

2)  The marriages of my family

3)  Wisdom to parent my children

4)  Complete healing for my friend, Janae

And on and on and on.....

Plus, yeah.... I had to post about something because I said I would.  Tried to upload pictures and had lots of trouble... so this is what you get.

High Heel Tennis Shoes

I should not even be allowed to have written the title of this email because....THERE SHOULD BE NO SUCH THING AS HIGH HEELED TENNIS SHOES.

I didn't even want to write the title because I have a million (or at least 10) other things I want to write about...... BUT because I have been trying to catch up from washing every article of clothing and bedding in my house and picking nits, I haven't had time to sit down and write something I want to write about.  BUT because I said I would post every day, I have to write something.  

Darn it!  I wish I had less character!

So, after I picked nits this morning for 90 minutes, I took Gracie to school.  We stopped at the mall first because every girl who has to be humiliated by bugs crawling in her hair should get a new pair of shoes.  (She also needed some really bad.)

As I was walking in the mall, I saw some lady walking out of the mall.  She had on shoes that looked exactly like:

I just wanted to walk over to that lady and knock her down and rip those shoes off her feet.   Then, I would have walked over to the nearest dumpster and thrown them away.

Those shoes just made me mad!  Those two things should not go together.  That's like eating chocolate cake with a side of mayonnaise.

Seriously, would you wear those shoes?

I Heart RID Shampoo

I was SOOO going to do this great post today.... and I would have.....



And when I was finished picking and treating EVERYONE'S head in this house... I then stripped down beds and had 9 washing machines going at the laundry mat close to my house.

I'm going to bed now and thanking the Lord that it's just lice, right?  Other people are dealing with a lot more than bugs right now.

P.S.  RID shampoo is used to kill lice.  

P.S.S.  When the school nurse called me today, she said, "They were scurrying."  

I could have done without that.

Shew! I'm back!

Accidently took a blogging break...oops!

 A Casting Crowns concert (where I met Steven Curtis Chapman's wife) two different weeks of Spring Breaks (kids in 2 different school systems), Easter and a 5 day trek to the mountains of North Carolina.... but I'm back. And, as you might well imagine... I have lots of things to write.

How about a post every day this week?

And........ how about a couple pictures to tide you over?
