It's the weekend. Yay! Jim was supposed to work today, but we are having car problems. Yay that he's home. Boo for the car. Thankfully, though, there's a mechanic within walking distance since we only have one vehicle. It's just the $ thing. I'm so hoping this won't cost an arm and a leg. The good thing is that this mechanic is very reasonably priced (always cheaper than anybody else) and we have an established relationship with him. Hey when all you can afford are prehistoric vehicles, you end up at the mechanic a lot. Oh well, at least I know he won't rip us off.

Yesterday, I did get my Bible study stuff done. So far, so good in that dept. The prayer thing, not so much. It didn't happen yesterday. When Jim got home from work, he fell asleep, and then I took a shower, got dressed, and did all my prettying (I know that's not an actual word, but hey it's MY blog, so I can do what I want). Then I had to grocery shop, and I had a lot to buy. Then put away and make dinner, and by the time everything was done, it was like 10:30, and Jim was ready for bed. I also didn't end up cleaning the kitchen at all. First menu planning 3 meals a day for a week and making the grocery list took longer than I thought. Then Jim asked me to clean our room (which was also a PIT) and THAT took a while. I'm working on being more accommodating to his requests, which usually isn't a big deal cuz he doesn't really ask a whole lot, nor is he demanding. It's just that I often have my own plan, and if I'm not careful, I can view his requests as interruptions. And I don't want to get that kind of attitude toward him since he's the most important person in my life, other than God.

So today (unless Jim has other things in mind that would prevent it), in addition to doing my Bible study, getting myself dressed and prettied up, I will also prepare meals, clean up the kitchen, and pray with my hubby. Plus, we have a dinner at church tomorrow so I need to make a dessert and garlic bread for that, and tonight is family movie night at my house. It's Kelley's turn this week.

OK my morning coffee has been delayed WAY too long. It will now become afternoon coffee, and I'd better get it before anyone gets hurt.

  1. Woo hoo, I can comment! Thank you Annette. I was just thinking about how badly I don't want to clean up the kitchen, but I can't stand when it is dirty in the morning, so it must be done. Then I still need to prepare my SS lesson. Those kids keep showing up week after week. So strange. Have a good movie night!
