Shoes in heaven

After a nice long nap this afternoon (woohoo!), C was in the kitchen quietly looking up at the fridge where her attendance chart hung that she brought home from Sunday School last week.

Finally she says, “Hey, why does God sell shoes in heaven?”


The chart was filled with stickers of what it’s like to be two now…things like baseball bats and tricycles, Sippy cups and toothbrushes. And of course, a pair of sneakers.

Apparently all take home things from class must be things in heaven 🙂

I’m working on a post in my head on setting goals that I may be able to tie in with Nehemiah and count as a review. I’m gonna try real hard to have the energy to write that tonight. I had a nice nap today so it may happen.

The secret is out

Well it’s not much of a secret since I chose to tell many people and ask them to keep it a secret 🙂 So if you are reading here and somehow don’t know that I am pregnant then where have you been? Yes, it’s true folks, I’m about 9 weeks along. I really wasn’t planning on outing myself for another few weeks but I’m really bad at not telling people. Everyone I meet up with anywhere always says, “so, when are you guys gonna have another one?” I’m not so great with the lying so I recently started telling people “Septemeber 30th, that’s when.” And then they have a funny reaction and it’s actually pretty amusing.

Anyway, I’ll also tell you that I feel horrible. And I can’t say I expected to feel horrible since I had a prize winning pregnancy with C. Apparently the second one is not so prize winning. Now I know what morning sickness is and I have one question: why don’t they call it all day sickness? Seriously. I figure that this should be one great baby who sleeps all the time once it comes out. C was the opposite of that so it only makes sense, right?

Yup, that’s what I thought.

There. No more secrets to bust out Shannon 😉

I can’t help myself

 BAHAHAHAHAHA! Edit to actually spell my middle name correctly…seriously. I need sleep 🙂

I’ve been tagged by Shannon. I must do it, I must. C is still napping so I will.

Here are the Rules: Post the rules on your blog, and then give your answers. List one fact about yourself for each letter in your middle name. Each fact must begin with a letter from your middle name. If you do not have a middle name, use your maiden name(or create a middle name).Once you are tagged, update your blog with your middle name and your answers. At the end of your post, tag one person for each letter of your middle name. Leave them a comment on their blog telling them that they have been tagged, and that they need to come read your blog for details.

Let it first be known that I do not enjoy giving out my middle name so you should feel special.

P – Paranoid. I’m paranoid about lots of things. All the time. I’m trying to shake that.

A – Athletic…well I used to be. I miss those days sometimes 🙂

T – Tired. I’m tired all the time lately and can’t seem to sleep past 4:30 am. It’s getting annoying. Hey, maybe I should go to bed earlier and then get up for the day at 4:30 and get some things done… Nah.

R – Rules. I’m confused by the rules of this tag but I copied and pasted them anyway. I’m easily confused.

I – Impressed; that I made myself a salad for lunch. But I won’t mention I ate it with a side of dill pickle chips 🙂

C – Complete moron. I didn’t even spell my name right the first time I did this.

I – Idiot. For having to come back and add two more letters. Seriously. Who does that?

A – Awana – I’m an Awana games leader. Sparky leader to be precise. I love it. It’s fun.

There you have it. Consider yourself tagged!

What I’m trying to think about today

The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.  1Peter 4:7

His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3: 22,23

That is all, have a nice day 🙂

So I think most uf us read Rocks in my Dryer. In case you don’t know it, Shannon from Rocks is currently in Uganda with a group of bloggers. They are being hosted by Compassion which is a group like World Vision that helps children in need get sponsors. I’m sure you all now about it. Anyway, Shannon got to meet the child that her family has been sponsoring. My recommendation is to go read her post first here and then go see the video here.

I dare you to try and not bawl your eyes out. Go read what all these people have seen there. It’s a real eye opener.
