...of random stuff

Good afternoon everyone!

I decided to take a break over the weekend just see how I want to manage my time. I chose the wrong weekend to do some "troubleshooting." My husband had weekend duty so I had bunches of time on my hand outside of entertaining the kids until they got tired of me.

Anyway, here are a few things I want to share. No particular topic, just some random stuff.

1. I received Keri Wyatt Kent's book, 'rest-Living in Sabbath Simplicity, on Friday! I won it by participating in Angela's birthday bash week celebration! Thank you Angie-big SMOOCHES!

2. A grouchy lady walked into her bathroom on Friday morning to brush her teeth, wash her face, etc. and found the words, "I love you. I hope you have a good day!" on her bathroom mirror. I, (I mean grouchy lady), smiled widely and felt all "lovey-lovey" at her husband's love expression!

3. Sunday night, I was in Krispy Kreme until about 10:15 p.m. trying to meet a writing deadline!

4. An announcement was made via text message that my sister's wedding planned for June is no longer a plan; it's cancelled, like the marriage isn't even going to take place either! But the thing that I can't wrap my mind around is that she doesn't know this!!! Therefore, my genuine intention on asking her if she was okay, turned out to be more like a I know something that you don't know type thing. Sorry dude, you should have mentioned in your text that you were telling the family before you told your fiance, uuuuhhhh soon to be X.


  1. I have awards for you on our blog!


  2. ***ouch!!!***

    I am being torn between the amazingly simple, yet profoundly thoughtful expression of love by your wonderful husband -
    and the creepy thoughtlessness of your sister's X.

    Thankfully, love wins. I think I'll dwell on that sweet expression from your hubby - and how it transformed you, I mean, grouchy lady.

  3. I'm torn too. How SWEET of your husband to leave that grouchy lady such a loving note. ;)

    I am SO heartbroken for your sister. What a dirty, rotten way to break an engagement. Then too, I guess it's better than to discover the person you have married doesn't want to be married. Saying a prayer for her now.


Y'all's comments are overwhelmingly encouraging. I appreciate them very much. They motivate me to continue being myself. Smooches!
