In case you haven’t heard, our oldest daughter is getting married. Yes, we’re pretty excited around here. And once they were ready they were ready. The wedding is in February.
In an effort to stay cool I have been equipping myself with cooling gadgets and devices. I like gadgets and new technology. I can’t always figure them out, but I still like them.
What happens when you mix a hot, summer weekend, no A/C and broken van doors together? Read and find out!
We’ve been spring cleaning around here. Every afternoon I work on one spot in the house, cleaning and organizing it. I am doing it slowly in an attempt to trick myself into thinking I’m not really doing work.
I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back to a normal-ish routine. The Christmas decorations are down and we are doing our simple Monday-Bible study, Tuesday-Church, etc.
Do you go to retreats? It has been a long, long time since I attended any kind of retreat where I wasn’t speaking or working. But this past weekend I got to go to one and let me tell ya…..I was not prepared for the deep introspection and personal conviction.
This weekend, in addition to painting, we hung a new cabinet and new microwave. It sounds great until you have to figure out how you are going to add trim to all of it that will hide the flaws and make it look like the rest of the old kitchen.
The day after my birthday is one of my kids’ and that means we pretty much just entertain ourselves for about 3 days. We can’t just stop the day after 2 days in a row of partying.
This is a whole new level of parenting. People say toddlers and teenagers are hard….we never had big struggles with those ages. But adults, that is a topic that needs some attention!
But I realize I have not told you much about all of the writing that’s happening right under our very roof. #mykids
