My endearing Larry


Larry has been a great comfort to me this past week while I have been feeling so poorly. Last night he talked to me for a long time about how I'm feeling, and just put his hand on me and prayed for me. That alone brought me so much peace. If I can just lay down next to him, I feel better.

I couldn't wait for him to come home today. I worked from bed all day, on my laptop. Actually finished all my initiatives that are computer related. Anything else that has to be wrapped up here in Tampa before I leave for Orlando, I have to go in to the office and do tomorrow. Everything from packing everything for my product table to making my announcement video for Sunday's service, to just wrapping up all loose ends for Sunday. Part of the difficulty when I go away is that I have to cram everything into a few days work and that is not easy. I'll still come back to a few loose ends Saturday night but that cannot be helped.

I did shower and dress today and even put makeup on but aside from that...worked from bed with my laptop. Larry came home today after work and brought me a pack of Wint-O-Green lifesaver mints. He knows how much I love them. He does special things for me like that all the time. He also brought me some lowfat cheesecake icecream. It's things like that that he does all the time that just endear him more to me. Last night I just cried on his shoulder for a while about the way I feel - literally. I just can't wait to feel normal again. Well, as normal as I can be!

I need to pack.

I need to clean the house.

Jordan got his driver's liscense permit today. The world will never be the same. I am not happy about it, but I really can't control it. He's plenty old enough by FL standards, and he's in driver's ed and he's required to have it. In 3 weeks, he turns 16. Now both my boys are able to drive and it's just the scariest thing in the world. Nobody really understands that until it happens to them...I just had my head in the sand and thought this day would never come. 

So, what else is on my agenda tonight? Remaining initiatives tonight are to watch American Idol with Larry and the kids (we have it Tivo'd) and then spend some time in prayer before bed. And lay there with Larry some more if I can convince him to come to bed earlier rather than later. I think I can.

I think the men did well tonight on American Idol. My favorites from the night:
Phil Stacey (even though he was in Lee University Singers)
Blake Lewis (always. love him)
Nick Pedro
Chris Richardson (I generally can't stand him, but tonight he picked the perfect song)
Tell me who you like from the guys and girls!

Yes they did very well. Strange thing is, the people I normally do not like (and thought for sure I would want to have voted off) did REALLY well. Sundance for instance...I generally DO NOT like him and I felt his performance was HORRIBLE last week. This week he practically knocked me off the couch.

Chris Richardson was amazing.

I just think Nick Pedro is cute. He is a good singer, but just looking at him you melt...

Phil Stacey I like simply because he's a PK. I like his voice too. But I guess I love him because he's from a pastor's home and I just can't help it for that reason alone.

I think Chris Sligh has a great voice too although I wish to God he would cut that hair of his.
