Just Sayin'

*updated at bottom

Well, it's been a crazy week.
Not sure why. Seems like one of those weeks where I was never where I was suppose to be, yet didn't have anywhere to be.

I think my minds been all over the place.
In about two weeks we will have an 8-year old girl move in with us for a few months. This excites me, makes me nervous and when I look around my teenage boy home I wonder where and how she'll fit in.

A yard sale at my mother-in-laws today is suppose to be where I am right now, but a killer headache kept me in bed most of the morning. So much for selling the pile of yard sale stuff sitting in my dinning room. Maybe tomorrow.

Yesterday I was without car only to realize my Thursday Bible study started up again. Fortunately I made it there and home, but the 2.5 hour time I am usually away from home was bounced up to 6 hours away and catching up on those missed hours is not fun for me. Not. Fun. At. All.

8th grade homeschool is not going well this month, but we'll catch up; I hope we must.

Hmm... really I am wanting to get away for a week or so. And when I say away I do not mean a trip to see family. I love them but I am ready for some time with my family alone. That will not happen as none of them crave that same thing. Plus the finance thing, ugh.

Speaking of, last fall we started to put into practice Dave Ramsey's steps to financial freedom- love it and equally hate it. Means saying no to a lot of things, fun things for me. It means cooking cheaper- which means more time for me in the kitchen, and if you know me I struggle with kitchen time, but am forced there because if I don't we don't eat!

So I guess this post has become a bit of a frustration/life/whatever type of post.
Giving my burdens to the Lord. Trying to take on His yoke, after all it's easy and light.
Just some days I would rather not believe, rather not trust, rather not seek Him. Honestly some days I'd rather wake up and do whatever the heck I wanted. To kick all I know to be right aside and live a little for my flesh.
Just sayin'

But today I press on.
Press on toward the goal and remember that 2 Cor 4:17: these light and momentary troubles are achieving for me an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. At least that's what I'm believing even though I don't want to =)

Oh and did I mention my mother-in-law, the real one, and father-in-law, the step one, come into town on Saturday. Not too much stress, just the pull to be with them 2 towns away while life still goes on here at home. Better up the gas budget this week.

well, I am doing much better. Had a great, well-overdue time with Steve. It had been a while since we had some slow-down time together. He reminded me that I love to create and that it had been awhile since I had created anything. So I spent the better part of the afternoon in the garden, weeding and watering; and in the sewing room, sewing and creating a new pattern. Too often I put off activities that give me strength. Some well needed therapy. So now I still press on...

Your husband sounds great. I am not creative. I think I like to research and problem solve.

It would be great to get together sometime. Let me know when you come up this way. Maybe sometime we will go there.

I miss your Mom. How are your brothers? I keep meaning to ask. How is your Dad's cousin?
