Hump Day

Hump Day today. Boy I am tired. Got interested in "Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood" movie last night at 11pm and stayed up to watch it! I got in bed about 1:30am, and the ceiling fan was making an annoying clicking noise. Couldn't have I turned it on high. Fixed that right up. Got snuggled in one more time and my Dear Hubby (DH) was making an annoying sound. Can't turn him on high to fix him so I just punch him and make him turn over....just long enough for me to fall alseep.

He must have known I punched him because he woke me up poking me, prodding me and pestering me in general. Hmmph. He really is sweet most of the time, but let me just tell you I can't do that to him. He can dish it out but he sure can't take it!! :) haha He hits me back and growls at me in the morning....just like my 10 year old. My five year old wakes up so happy most days. Her eyes open and her mouth starts flapping. She talks/sings/squeals from the time she wakes up til she falls asleep at night, and sometimes at night she even talks in her sleep!

My SIL has asked me to be a co-leader for our daughter's GirlScout troop. I am pretty busy working all I can right now, but I have wanted to help out with the troop, so I said yes. Well it just isn't a matter of helping out. The GS council makes sure that all it's helpers are trained properly. So, there is a training we have to go to one Saturday soon. I will just be a worker-bee so that will be nice. I am a good worker bee. :)

I am actually a little giddy about seeing Hubby today. I am trying to get ready and found myself primping!!

I suggested to the girls that we get ready early and go to Tulsa and mess around at the mall before we pick Dad up. They were all for that, even with the condition that the living room be cleaned up before we leave. They hate to clean up so they must really want to go.

I have tried really hard to get the house cleaned up, but my time has been interrupted by this or that. Yesterday I babysat Bailey so that took up a lot of time, then we had a birthday party to go to. (Boy was it hot!!!) Oh well you can tell we made an effort. Hope he notices

We slept late today and didn't go to church. Bad I know especially after my entry last Sunday. See what I mean? Lack of committment.

Well I better go get the girls started on getting all their Barbie parephenalia out of the living room.:)

Home again home again, jiggety jig

My hubby has been in Houston for 4 days. (His father is at MD Anderson receiving experimental drugs for leukemia. He had a mild heart attack this week and Hubby felt like he should go and help out and give some support. Papa has been in Houston all summer and it probably did them both some good to be together. )

He I am beginning to miss him a little. The first three days I was working all day and when I got home the girls kept me busy til bed time so I didn't get to miss him that much but today, Saturday, has been a different story. I am used to him being here to annoy me and I hate to admit it but I miss it.

Some good things about him being gone:
The yard is neat and tidy. My dad came over to weed eat for me and we got it all spiffed up. The girls have been pretty good, no major melt downs (of mine) and few fights actually.
I still have the gallon of milk I bought Thursday. (Hubby eats a bowl of cereal before bed every night)
That's about it.

Some bad things about him being gone:
I have to ask someone else to pick them up after school. They LOVE Dad picking them up.
We have all had some melancholy moments of loneliness.
I still have the gallon of milk I bought Thursday. It will probably spoil before I can drink it.

He arrives tomorrow at 6pm in Tulsa. The girls and I will go pick him up and give him big hugs and kisses and I will promise to welcome him home in my own "special" way later. ;)

I have diclosed this blog to a friend of mine. Let's see if she reads it. I still am a little anxious about others reading this. I am confusing a diary with a blog I guess.

My daughters and I made it to church on time today. A major accomplishment in our house. My husband left early. He was tired of listening to three females ages 5-30something try to get ready in one bathroom. Men. They can get ready in 15 minutes and it is just not fair! We have to coordinate clothes, shoes, panty hose, jewelry, make up and hair accessories. (That s just for my 10 and 5 year old!) I am usually the last one ready after having to stop forty-eleven times to help them. I know I know I could get up earlier, but what fun is that?

My house hold has some getting up early issues. None of us likes to do it. I have learned to do it as I have gotten older, but that doesn't mean I like it!!

We had a wonderful service. We shared the Lord's Supper, had a little lesson from the preacher and heard a wonderful message in song from our choir. We were doing what is important. We were in church as a family, teaching our daughters it is not a chore to go. It is a privilege.

The message in song was particularly convicting today. I sat there with tears of shame falling down my face, knowing that I have not had the faith I should as of late. I have not had the committment I once had and certainly have not been the person that I know I should be. I vowed there in my pew today to not let this be the standard in my life. I left with more that I came with today, and that is how it should be.

Be gentle it's my first blog

This is my maiden voyage into the blog world. I figure since I have read so many lately I might as well put in my two cents worth into cyberspace. So here we go.........
