Next Week

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I'm alive. : ) It has been a crazy few weeks, but not in a bad way. Just busy. I hope to be back to my routine by next week. Miss you all!

And Now it's Friday...

I keep thinking I'm gonna have some free time, but it's just not working out at all right now.

Jillian (10) has moved up to Middle School this year and since we've started back at the co-op it's been a real change from elementary. It's not so much that the work is too hard, but it's just so much more than she's used to doing that she's having a hard time organizing her time. After a couple of really late night (1:30ish) I decided that I was gonna have to step in and help her learn to organize a little better. So that's taken almost all of my free time.

Couple that with the fact that our music director at church is in a singing competition this weekend (3 hours away, of course, so we'll be lucky to get 4 hours of sleep Sat. night) and that we plan to go but have to be back the next morning in time for church because it's our preachers first Sunday back after open heart surgery (which is a story in itself that I'd planned to write, but ... well ... you know how it goes. It's all written in my head if I ever get the chance...).

Oh, and did I fail to mention that we have friends coming in from out of town on Monday for a few days? And it's right in the middle of the busiest time of my week so I have to have everything done in advance? Which includes a huge BBQ on Monday to celebrate the work that God has done in our lives?

I'm not complaining. I'm happier than I've been in years. Just busy. And missing you all. Hopefully I'll be back to "normal" here by the end of the month. And of course, I'll stop in when I can to read and/or update.

I Am In Awe

  • I know I've not been around much this week. The thing is, I'm a creature of habit and with the holiday my schedule was thrown off. That combined with the fact that the girls co-op didn't cut them *any* slack on homework has meant a super busy week. I'll try to be back more regular next week.

  • Alanna, I've recently come across your blog and find it so honest and open. I don't know if you know that you have comments turned off. If you do and that's the way you want it I totally understand. But if you were wondering why you weren't getting comments, that's probably why. ;D And you totally flatter me by having me listed as a favorite and I'd like to return the favor if it's okay with you.

  • And last but certainly not least, I just wanted to say that God has moved so big in a personal area of my family's life. We got the news yesterday morning as I was driving my middle daughter to co-op, and I was so overwhelmed that I had to pull the car over. God hears prayers. And He still works miracles. I think Mike put it best yesterday evening when he said that he hoped that we could someday, in some small way, begin to deserve this blessing that God handed us yesterday. My heart is lighter than it has been for years. All praises be to God.
