time travel tuesday ~ yesterday

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007


I’m making time travel incredibly easy this week! We’ve traveled all over our lives and today we are going to travel to yesterday. If you live in the US, you probably celebrated Labor Day in some way… even if it was just staying home for the day. What did you do yesterday, who did you spend time with? What was the highlight of the day? Were there any disappointments?

Here’s my yesterday (well, I’m typing this late Monday night so it is actually my today… but you know what I mean):

I got to sleep in until almost 9 AM! It was wonderful. Well, until I woke up and realized both Izzy and I had a lot of congestion in our heads. We didn’t move very fast this morning. I fed her breakfast and ate a delicious bowl of bran flakes (blech)… while the other children slept in. Because they had gone to a lock in Friday night and stayed awake the entire night, I assumed they needed extra sleep. Matt was up before me and helped himself to breakfast.

Around noon Matt decided a trip to Mardels (Christian bookstore) would be a fun thing to do. He was right. We took Izzy & Emelia. Emelia took Izzy over to the kid’s area and they looked at the dolls and watched veggie tales. I found some really neat things and also a new devotional book called “women of faith – a life of worship.” I did the first lesson tonight. It was about God’s glory. How God is glorified and gives glory. I found it to be really interesting and enjoyed all the scripture references. I am excited to do the next lesson. Matt was looking at the bibles and found one that was a ‘read the bible in 90 days bible’… so he decided to divide the number of pages in his favorite bible by 90 and read that many pages per day to finish in 90 days. He offered the same challenge to the rest of us. Emelia is in her room reading her 10 pages now. Bailey already read his. I’m going to read mine as soon as I finish this post.

We stopped off at Chickfila on the way home. Matt spent the afternoon playing softball with Emelia, swimming and doing yard work. I stayed in and took care of Izzy.

Later in the evening me and the kids went to Mom & Dad’s house to eat dinner. I thought we were doing a cookout, but mom decided to order carryout from Poblano Grill, a great Mexican restaurant around here. I had chicken fajitas. She also had NY style cheesecake. I guess it’s a good thing my day began with bran flakes… since it ended with cheesecake…

The highlight of my day was the conversations Matt and I had. We enjoyed each other’s company today and had open honest talk about where we are in our walk with God, etc. I enjoy talking to Matt so it was nice to have some down time to connect. I can’t think of a disappointment today. It was a good day. I pray that we (me & Izzy) wake up feeling much better tomorrow and that her week in school is even better than the past three weeks she has had.
