Fun Friday


Today is my day off and it's not so much fun as relaxing, which I really need and appreciate. At this point it's not over...but I thought I'd blog before midnight since I have been so late in posting this week, and right now I have a totally quiet house.

This morning I got Jordan up for school and then went back to sleep and when I got up my husband made me pancakes. Now THAT is the life. Being honest, I have quite a bit of work left to do this weekend but the Lord has been speaking to me about that whole Sabbath thing so I am determined not to work today. After eating pancakes I took a bath and then got my nails done. It felt so good. Both my hands and feet were so overdue. Larry met me and took me to lunch afterwards at a brand new place called The Hungry Greek. This was amazing, first of all for two reasons:

1) I was hungry.
2) I'm Greek.

In addition to that the food was INCREDIBLE. It was one of those places I had a really hard time selecting what to eat because the aroma was amazing and there were so many choices. After a nice lunch together we had an appointment to take Maddie for her next shot series. I dread it as I can't stand for her to go through any pain but on the other hand I want to be there to wrap her in a blanket and comfort her and bring her home afterwards. Yes, I absolutely treat her like a child. She's been sleeping ever since we got home which is expected after the shots.

Larry took the kids to a youth STL rally tonight and I'm home by myself in the quiet just enjoying a few moments peace. Dustin and Casey stopped by for a sandwich on a way to a party tonight and are coming back later to spend some time. I enjoyed talking with them as well as my friend, Pastor Judi Cotignola who called to talk for a while and is such an amazing woman of God, and encourager. It's been a good day, and...it's not over yet. I have a full day of work tomorrow before me, but I'm not worrying about it, I'm just enjoying today and all that it holds for me.

You have so many friends because you show yourself friendly, encourage, and are open. I have appreciated your likeminded colleage input. Not many pw really feel called to pastor, therefore when you find someone like you you've "gotta love 'em"!
P.S. I love you!

I didn't know you are Greek! Our best friends are Greek! If they are ever that way, I will have to tell them about that place. We love Greek food too. These friends just sent us a box ...belated anniversary gift. I got a robot vacuum cleaner! It's pretty cool. Anyway, you probably liked the "Big Fat Greek Wedding" my friends said that's just like the 'real deal'...windex and all!
Well, I gotta go use my new vacuum and windex! LOL 2as1
