just thoughts… clearing my head…

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007



Whew, what a day! (Is it my imagination or do I start many posts with that same phrase?)…
It started with a phone call from my high school bff Darla. I’ve mentioned her before, she was the one who got a brand new cutlass calais. Anyway, she is just about convinced to start blogging! I told her how wonderful you all are and how you have made my life so much more pleasant these past few months, with your sweetness & encouragement! I hooked her (I hope).
Then I drove way across town to take Emelia to spend the night with Julie’s daughter at the grandparent’s house. Julie lives in TX, but A is here for the week so she needed a diversion for a day or so. Came home to get chores done and my brother showed up with a carryout order of my absolute favorite “Victoria’s Pasta!!!” Am I spoiled or what? YUMMO! Worked with Iz, cooked some dinner, cleaned more and then got ready for church. Amanda went with us tonight. She was okay with it and had a really good attitude about going. I was thankful for that. I know she doesn’t like new situations but she didn’t hate it, so we’re off to a good start. Tonight was good again at the new church! Had some interesting exchanges with some people and we left feeling built up. Nice. There are so many thoughts running through my mind right now from Izzy’s repeated bloody noses yesterday and today to hair cuts and should I cut my way too long hair off??? Oh Amanda and Dena both got the cutest hair cuts and I’m feeling the urge to purge (hair that is).
I got some fun goodmail from Jenny Boo! She sent some pedicure fun things.
Matt’s fam is coming Friday to spend the weekend, Jane Ann is coming too from dallas and we are celebrating my birthday a little early. Jane Ann’s current boyfriend is making me a chocolate cake. I got to know him a little on our last dallas trip and he is really a nice person! I think I’m going to cook Pioneer woman’s lasagna for Friday night and we are going out to eat on Saturday to a favorite mexican place…
Julie and her hub are coming to town with child #7-W. I think we are going to eat and see a movie Saturday night. It should be a really fun weekend followed by a busy birthday week (love that!)…
That’s all, my brain is sleepy now so goodnight! love ya’ll!

p.s. Thanks Betty & Ed for emailing me such cool graphics!
