II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

blah, blah, blah...

It's Sunday evening, 7:22 pm and I can think of at least 10 things I should be doing and blogging is not one of them..but here I am. You know, come to think of it, blogging is never on my "to do" list and I always feel guilty about taking time "away" to blog. What's up with that? I think I need to start penciling in a few fun things on my "to do" list from now! :o)
So anyway, I really don't have anything of significance to talk about. Yesterday was fun. I went scrapbooking with my buddies from 10-12 and then left to have lunch at a deli with some girlfriends from my Sunday School class. Then we headed over to a pottery/ceramic studio place where you pick something out and paint it and then you have to leave it there for a few days while they "fire" it up and then it becomes glazed and then you get to go back and pick it up. I did a platter and I painted it chocolate brown with big turquoise polka dots. I will take a pic when I get it back for you all to see. Hopefully it turns out decent. Anyway, in all, I was gone (from the house and my family) for 7 hours on Saturday but it sure went by quick! I hate it that when I do get some time away like that, I spend a good portion of it worrying about what's going on at home. It's not at ALL that I don't trust my husband with the kids...but I just keep thinking that he's gonna be mad at me for being gone so long. It's true, in the past, we have struggled with this a lot...but honestly, we've come to a good balance over the past year or so in this area and I should have known I'd have nothing to worry about...but instead, I kept thinking, "Ohhhhh...I need to HURRY up and get done and get home!!!" When I did, he was totally cool and everything was under control. Then I was frustrated with myself for not just letting go and having fun while I was gone. Ergh!
Anyway, today after church and lunch, Matt and I have been working on finishing the fence around our back yard. I put on my bikini so I could get some sun while we worked and I was so bummed out about how I looked in it. I know you guys MUST get SO tired of hearing me say that stuff...so I won't ramble on and on about it...but really, this extra 10 pounds I am carrying around HAS to GO. I mean, extra 10 pounds over what I weighed last summer...25 pounds to lose in all. Okay, I promised not to go 'there' for the bazillionth time again..so I am changing the subject.
Anonymous comments: Have you guys noticed the totally bizarre anonymous comments I have been getting? So weird. I mean, what is up with a person who advises you to "beat his butt with that paddle" and insinuates I should put "tranquilizers in the kids dinners--seriously". WhatEver!! So...I am blocking anonymous comments from now on. Everyone (besides these weirdos) who leaves me comments, are people who have blogs anyway...so there's no sense in it.
Thanks Logzie for the recommendation. :o)
Well, I think I'll go hop in the shower and wash this nice, thick layer of sand and dirt off of me and then settle into the couch for some nice laundry-folding tv watching. (must multi-task at all times)!
Hope you all had a good weekend and have a fantastic week! (thanks for the word L.!-ha ha)

HA!! That word is kinda catchy huh? :0)

I have a hard time relaxing when I am away from home too. I hate that too. There is never a problem and Chuck always encourages me to go...why do us Mother's do that??
