A woman's work is never done


Can't really call this a typical fun Friday because aside from taking some extra time to sleep after the kids were off to school, I worked 90% of the day, trying to get things ready to leave for Phoenix, and beyond that to Africa. I'll only be home for a few days from Arizona and then leave for Africa. To be gone this much I have to work waaaay ahead. This week I had to get six messages done (not all for Africa, some for church and other events.) Plus all kinds of other paperwork that I normally take care of...

I'm making real headway with it, it's just a long process if I'm going to do it right particularly with messages. I put my whole heart and soul into them, and don't make exceptions to that even if I'm having to do them in advance.

Tonight as I was finishing my second message Larry made his spaghetti for dinner. He makes THE BEST in the world. I've bragged on it here many times. We all just love it. It was a bright spot in my day of plowing through all this work.

After working until my brain was so tired, I decided to go out and walk/bike 3 miles. Just couldn't do six tonight...I had too many other things to get back to, like dishes, and other house stuff. My goal is to get the whole house in good order by the time we leave too...not to mention last minute wrap up for Sunday services.

And, last but definitely not least, we'll celebrate Dustin's birthday on Monday night! Yeah! My wonderful first born will be 19! Only one more year as a "teen". Amazing. I can't believe it! Speaking of Dustin, something major is on the line for him right now and it has the potential to be SUPER good so please pray for him that he would have favor! I can't say what it is right now...but as soon as I know, I will. Just pray for him.

After exercising 3 miles I came back and showered and put my Wonder Woman pajamas on. (Yes, I do really have them...Becky from church gave them to me a a gift!) And sat down to finish a few message outlines. At this point right now I'm wondering... should I push through for another one or watch Fox News and go to sleep? I think I might opt for sleep, not sure yet.

Decisions...decisions...

AGE 19! That's when I started dating my dh :) I just celebrated my 44 birthday this week. I went to see the movie Fireproof. It was very good! We want to have it at our church. A desire of my heart was granted: I had always wanted a diamond with the WOW factor! A friend gave me one. It's beautiful. I was shocked!! It was everything I had wanted (specs).
I am still in a daze.
PS You'll have to come for our family recipe for sauce, meatballs, and pasta! YUM!
