Full day but a great one!

Today I had three projects I needed to do for the surprise this weekend. Fridays is normally our day off, but I had known ahead of time I would be busy working on the surprise much of the day. I don't mind...I'm so excited and can't believe that we're getting this close down to the wire. Everything went perfect with the things I had to get done today -- went pretty much like clockwork! Like I have said before, I have just felt the presence of the Lord overshadowing me in this process.

Along with the three projects I managed to get a ton of other things in today. First of all (drum roll please) LARRY AND I HAD A DATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would you believe this is the first time in almost two months?! (I am talking a date by ourselves, not going out in a big group or anything like that.) For two people who usually spend a lot of "couple time" this has been a very long stretch of not having time together. We have been consumed with work things, and kid things. It's hard to explain some things we've gone through the past few months...all I'll say is, other things have demanded our attention to extreme. It was nice to sit and have dinner together tonight and talk without anybody interrupting us. The phone didn't even ring once while we ate. It was a MIRACLE, I tell you, a total MIRACLE!!!

In addition to my three surprise projects, and our date, I...

Did three loads of clothes


Re-potted/planted four plants

Had a dentist appointment (x-rays, exam, cleaning) No cavities! Yeah! =]


Went grocery shopping


Picked up Maddie's food and some pigs ears for her at Petsmart.


Did some cleaning at the house that Savanna wasn't able to do yesterday


Checked and answered work mail for NJ. My total email between pastoring/ministry, career coaching, writing, and other personal e-mail I receive can amount to several hundred emails a day. This is why at times I feel overwhelmed when it comes to answering my e-mail in a timely fashion but I try to give everyone an answer by 24 hours. If you have ever had a delay in hearing from me, now you know why. :)

Time for sleep. I'm leading life coaching in the morning, and then working on the surprise most of the rest of the day.

It's almost here...
