Randomness.....

I am having a very quiet and slow morning.....
...in fact, it is 9am and I am still in my robe!!!

I love that!

I don't have a lot to offer today, but I am trying to be better at blogging.  My poor little blog has been very neglected lately.  And can I just tell you that when your kids grow up and leave, your fodder for blogging diminishes greatly!!!

So today you get randomness.....

I think the colors in AR are the most vibrant I have ever seen them since moving here.  After moving here from the north, I have been pretty unimpressed by the color in the south...but not this year!!!

We have had someone sick in my family for over a MONTH...ugh.  My son now has the bad cold my husband was suffering with.  Not.fun.

I miss my friends.
It is always hard after spending time with your friends to get back in the swing of things..don't you think.  I so enjoyed waking up to them in my house and spending the day with them.  I could so live on a commune....just sayin'. 

However, I think I gained 5lbs while they were here!!

My son is heading up a mission at school called Samaritans Feet.  Tomorrow on 11/11/11, they will have one person in each class at school take their shoe off and collect $11 from the kids for shoes for needy children.  If you are my friend on FB, you saw that the marching band performed last friday at the game barefoot in support of this project!!  I am so proud of my son for the passion he has for this!! And praying the students will respond in a great way tomorrow!

God has so been working on my heart lately.  It seems every scripture I study, sermon I hear, devotion I read is going straight to my heart.  I love it when He does that....makes it so clear He has a message for me.  Now the hard part....applying what I am learning and making the appropriate changes.

Feeling very guilty today after I found out yesterday that I scheduled a vacation for my husband and me during the week of my son's Christmas band concert.....that would be his LAST Christmas band concert....aargh!!!!!

Do you watch Survivor?
I never miss it. It makes me laugh.
I am always amused that after so many years on air, after person after person has betrayed and lied to someone, knowing it is a GAME..and GAME you want to WIN, that people get SO MAD when someone blindsides them!!!

you know, I think I could go on and on today........
.....I won't.

You're welcome.

I watch Survivor too and I'm with you. For goodness sakes it's a game and that's how you win it! The ones that get so mad are usually the ones that are doing it to everyone else! haha
