ok so today feels like a "finally" Friday! ;o)
What a week. I don't want to wish my life away by any means, but some weeks are better than others ya know?
With everything else going on I will have to admit to not doing so well in the exercise realm. No real time, and in some cases no real energy left. I did attempt to do some training for the 10k outside...lol Over here on the East coast we have this thing called humidity.... ugh!
I don't think I did too badly but I sure need some more training. I went down to the boardwalk on the ocean front and started at 19th street. I walk / jogged down to 1st street then back up to 12th where D and the boys were playing. My legs felt great, my lungs were drowning. Guess the past 6 years of non smoking hasn't quite healed my lungs yet. ;o) I have asked for donations towards a new pair of running shoes for my birthday. It's at the end of the month. Maybe the new running shoes will help me breathe? Well a girl can hope.
S was busy every night this week with church and bible study and D was also at church so we didn't spend alot of time together which makes me sad. But we will have some good time together this weekend.
Tonight Jentzen Franklin will be at my Z's church speaking so we are going to go listen. I enjoy him and he usually has a good word to speak. I also enjoy worshiping there, they really know how to get their praise on, and sometimes you just gotta get some praise goin' ya know? (S just text me to tell me that Jentzen Franklin is speaking this morning at the youth portion of the conference. She is SO stoked!)
I have been doing some struggling with my attitude about this yard sale coming...lol I am so completely over joyed with what God is providing! Please don't mistake that. But I am working hard on not being annoyed with the people who have stipulations and strings attached to their donations. It's those little whispering nasty's Judgement and Pride...doggon them. I have been asking God for His forgiveness and Grace. I can't expect blessing if I am not in the right place with Him. They are giving and we are receiving the blessing. Period... end of story. Praise God!
D is talking to a new guy today about a job. He has also had a couple of people approach him about working for them. We will probably be seeing a significant pay cut though since he was with his current/past employer for 12 yrs. He had built some seniority. He is still working hard to complete his last job with them. He said that he has a reputation in the field and he wants to keep his integrity in tact. I am so proud of him for that.
The boys have been doing well this week. Yesterday they got to go to church for a few hours and both had so much fun! N made this really cute sea shell and sand frame for a picture they took of his name written in sand. It's so precious and he is so proud of it! E made turtles out of green hand prints. It's such a great program and the boys are having such fun! Today they are hanging out with my mom while S is at conference. They love my mom!
Speaking of mom she was at my house yesterday cleaning. Can I just tell you that having my mom at my house cleaning, is like God shining a light in all the dark places. oiy Now my mom doesn't clean to be nosey or bothersome. It's just what she does, it's like a sickness...LOL She washed my dishes (oops forgot to do it before she came over), cleaned out my fridge, emptied my trashcans and made us dinner. Super mom! Love her... feelin a bit guilty though. Perhaps after this yard sale thing is over I will have a bit more time??? ;o)
Hope you all have a blessed and full ...or restful weekend.
