Reflections -8 June 2009.
Plans for this week – Pick up my glasses, lots of driving to the theater, housework, getting closer to the end of the school “year”.
I am wearing – comfy pants and a t-shirt
I am feeling – very tired
I am hearing – the sizzle of the waffle maker
I am thankful for – coffee, especially this morning
I am wondering – how GuitarGirl will hold up this week
I am contemplating – the Trinity
In prayer – Emily, Matthew Karol, CarKiller, SoldierBoy,GoofyAl,Chief’s job stuff,UK Homeschoolers,
Chief: Is still doing “busy work” at the old job. He is grateful to be employed, but hates the work he has to do. Can’t wait to hear about that job.
SoldierBoy: Spoke to him 3 times last week. He is going to try to sell his beloved truck.
CarKiller: We got a few letters this week. He called for 30 seconds or so last Monday. I wish he’d use a payphone so he can talk.
GuitarGirl: HSM2 rehearsals begin this week (9-1) and ASU rehearsals continue (6-10p) She’s going to sleep like a rock.
MissKaboom: is SO excited that she gets to go to the Jonas Brothers concert in less than 2 weeks! She was invited by a friend when they ended up with an extra ticket.
MissCreativity: is also VERY excited… she gets to go to the Jonas Brothers concert, too! The friend that invited MissKaboom is also good friends with MissCreativity. I think she “eenie, meenie, miney, mo’d” who she would invite! Anyway, Chief decided to look for tickets one more time (when he last looked the tickets he found were running $200 – 800 each!!!!) and found some that were “reasonably priced.” MissCreativity invited her friend MissBrit to come along to the concert. They’ll have a blast!
LittleDood: has started to be a little sneak. hrmph. Whenever he has to eat something he doesn’t want to do, he tries to hide it. Of course, it’s 3 year old hidden, so it’s obvious that those napkins and cup on top of them are concealing something! I need to get a picture next time.
Kitchen – We had to get another grill yesterday. Getting replacement racks for our old grill (which is otherwise fine) is such pain. We have to go to the manufacturer, they are terribly expensive and on backorder for another month. We just “can’t live” without our grill, so we got another of the same brand, but a bit smaller. We will replace those grates once they’re back in stock and have 2 good grills. I think that’s fine as I’m praying very much that CarKiller and SoldierBoy get assigned to the military installation right down the road. If they do, they can come eat with us and bring friends and we’ll be able to cook for an army!
In our my craft room: still working on the colorful sleep sack and WILL work on some socks for the 52PP. I may knock out 3 pairs of baby socks so that I can get “caught up”
In our school: just trying to finish up
Lucky Room(s) of the week: in the blink of an eye, the room CarKiller left behind become a “storage area” for all of the STUFF we have to go through and purge, so I hope to get through that this week.
- The Rosary
- Glenn Beck’s: An Inconvenient Book
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix audiobook
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince audiobook (soon. [well after i finish listening to OoP again] Before a new movie, I’m always torn about whether or not I want to read the books again before the it comes out or not. It’s a mixed bag, but I usually opt to read/listen to them because it’s as good of a reason as any other to go through them again!)
Remember this book that I found? Well, I started it, but I’m not sure how I feel about it. It has great endorsements, but this jury is still out!
Remember the above statement? Well the jury is still out as I’ve not even for a moment thought to try to read it more. I think that may be telling.
- Holy Hour on Wednesday from 3 to 4
- Controlling the tongue.
- Working on detachment!
- Offering up disappointments
