What a whirl wind week! Wednesday was bitter sweet. The bitter…it was the third anniversary or my aunt’s tragic accident that took her life. I like to think of it as the day of her homecoming though. J She’s defiantly keeping Jesus on his toes with all that spunk she was packing.
The sweet…it was my family’s fifth anniversary. We haven’t technically celebrated yet because we have Life Group at our house on Wednesdays but we will this weekend. For those of you with the puzzled look on your face, when I say Family Anniversary, I am referring to the day when we adopted our three children. J They were born from my heart and even though they are all now crazy teenagers, I love them. Nick and I say
what the heck were we thinking, adopting kids that would eventually be teenagers we are so blessed!! I really shouldn’t be on the computer. I still need to wash my work out close for tomorrow and get my crock pot out and ready because we are making apple sauce tomorrow. It is my favorite smelling day in Kindergarten. No amount of kid sweat can overpower the smell of homemade apple sauce…hallelujah!!
On an exciting note, I filed my taxes tonight…you heard me correctly! I filed them BEFORE February. Shut the front door! Excitement! Now, don’t hate on me. I have used H & R Block online for years so since our information was pretty much the same as last year (except the money part, haha) so it was easy peasy and we didn’t have to pay anything in so that is Awe-Some!! Not that we ever have because we don’t take many deductions but I always set myself up emotionally for big drama so when it doesn’t happen I am so relieved. I know…therapy!
I am currently watching the news. Did you know that Justin Bieber is now a wax statue in a wax museum? I give him a month before he melts. You know every girl will ohh and ahhh (my daughter included) over him. All that hot lovin can’t be good for a ball of wax. I don’t remember being that nuts over New Kids on The Block but whatever. J
So…here is my thought of the day. I know…just one. Disappointing isn’t it. Haha! I am thinking how fun it would be to have a Texas meet up this summer. So, if you are in Texas tell me your thoughts. You can be a blogger or blog stalker (I am both so I don’t discriminate). I am thinking in June. I am presenting at Frog Street Press Splash this summer in Dallas and Houston during July so that month is pretty packed. What are your thoughts? Too stalkerish? I hope not. We are friends, right?
Can you believe it is almost February? I haven’t really accepted that it’s 2012 and it will be over before we know it. Okay. I really have to jet and tackle this to do list. It’s the list that keeps on giving. Isn’t that sweet?
Here is a February calendar…because you’re on mission organization too, right?!
Have a great Friday and know that you are loved and appreciated!!
