getting better

Today is going a little better thanks to a strategically timed extra large Coke, getting out of the house for a bit, and a happier little girl. Thanks for the love you guys!

One more stinky thing: Alex has fleas and I am dis-gu-sted to put it mildly. I made a trip to the vet this morning and we are now armed with some mighty strong flea defense as well as a spray for our home. Don't worry - Lauren and I are leaving Sunday so Shawn will spray then. Anyway, I have been on a mad cleaning spree throughout the house and I keep feeling like things are crawling on me. Isn't that nice? I HATE fleas. I hate bugs. I hate bugs that infest your house. I sort of hate Alex right now because he has fleas. Isn't that mean. I'll get over it...but it hasn't helped my cruddy week.

On a brighter note, my friend Kelly is preggo and due ANY DAY! I am beside myself with excitement. I cannot wait to meet little Ryan and hear that little baby cry. Love it! I'm praying that she has that little tyke before I leave Sunday because I will be so sad if I miss it. I'm teaching VBS at my church back home but I'll drive back to see them if Ryan decides to wait!

Oh, also I am so excited because I am doing the study Me, Myself, and Lies by Jennifer Rothschild this summer and I am PUMPED. The study deals with, "our destructive, unrealistic, self-talk." Ummmm, hello - this book has my name ALL OVER IT. This is part of the on-line bible study hosted by Beth Moore this summer. Wanna do it with me? Leave me a comment and I will get you info on the group my friend Tammy is forming. We'd love to have you!!! If you can't join the group, you can still participate in the study with us. Anyway - just let me know!!! I think it will be challenging and fun. Sometimes I have a hard time being totally honest with myself during a bible study. I think this one will be hard not to confront the areas I need desperate help in. As a side note, if you live in Springfield the Lifeway store is out of the study, but I got my book at CPO for $12.95.
Now - I need to be I am off! Peace, ya'll.


  1. FYI: Just went today to get a book for Leslie. Life Way was out. Mardel didn't have it, but there were still a few copies left at CPO!! I can't wait either!!

  2. I'm sorry you had such a hard day recently. Love you.
