Friday’s Feast

Friday, May 18th, 2007


List 3 emotions you experienced this week.

I’m not a very ’emotional’ person… you can ask any of my ‘friends’ who actually have voiced concern that I don’t show much emotion… but here are three I can think of:

Joy-I have felt very joyful at my walk with Christ and the revelations I have recieved.

Sadness-I read a post at another blog (I think Jill’s) anyway, she was talking about weaning her baby from his bottle. I lost it. It was the day after the three year anniversary and I had a good day on ‘the’ day, but I was typing a comment about how when Izzy’s accident happened she still took a nightly bottle and how she would knock on her wall from her crib and call out ‘baba.’ As soon as she had a bottle in hand she would dismiss me and be happy with her bottle. I had breastfed her until she was about 10 or 11 months but wanted to wean her because I waited too long with Emelia and it was hard. Anyway, I had several bottles made up in the fridge and I came home to get clothes and saw those bottles. I stood and poured out the milk, washed them, and put them away while crying. It all came back typing it and I was very sad, but only for a moment and then I snapped out of it.

thankfulness-I have been thankful this week for all the wonderful blessings that I have received and continue to receive. I am thankful to God and know that He is good, all the time.


Name a car you’d love to have.

I like my suburban fine. It’s big, so maybe a suburban that gets good gas mileage…


Describe your typical morning routine.

Wake up… pray … bathroom… teeth… make Matt’s breakfast… get Izzy up… get Emelia up… say bye to Bailey & Amanda… fix Izzy & Emelia’s breakfast… get a coke!…check email…feed Izzy… say bye to Matt… get Emelia ready for school… watch for Emelia’s bus…get Izzy ready for school… get dressed… take Izzy to school. (I do a lot of things the night before to make our mornings go smooth. Like lay out clothes for Matt Emelia and Izzy, program coffee maker, make lunches if needed, etc.)

Main Course

Have you ever emailed someone famous? If so, who, and what did you say to them? Did they reply?

Not that I can remember.


Do you listen to podcasts? If so, which ones?

I don’t listen to ‘podcasts,’ but, I listen to different lessons available on the internet.

Be warned: they only make these before 10 a.m. and they go fast.
