Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

Hello

Good morning.  I have 10 minutes until I need to get ready to take Kristen to soccer, so I’ll do my best.  It’s been a rough week.  After successfully navigating the Italian food feast last Friday night – I’ve done terrible!  Too much bragging about how good I did – ah, PRIDE!  I’ve eaten way too many carbs & I’ve felt sluggish & lethargic all week which drives me to more Diet Coke in order to stay awake, which keeps me up late at night.  Ick!!!  That’s how I feel.  But I had a very small dinner last night, so I’m off to a GOOD weekend this time.

I didn’t get any doors painted – I was too tired from eating badly – but they are in the garage & everyone is running upstairs to use the bathroom & Catnip has free run of the laundry & sewing room which really confuses him.  My goal is to hit those doors this afternoon after soccer.

Joel & I went to get shingles for the barn last night.  Menards was having a 3 day sale & he just happened to click on the website & voila!!  After I got home from soccer practice with Kristen (the good from this week is that she & I walked 4 laps on Thrusday & I did another 5 last night – yeah for me!), my feet hurt & I was tired & Joel found the sale.  Off we went to Marion to pick them up.  Boy, do they have a nice store – I could have spent hours just looking around!  The guy loaded our shingles ("Wow, you’ve got a 1980’s Chevy truck!!"  he was quite impressed with our farm vehicle) & we headed for home.  Joel was expecting lots of people to give a friendly wave of their headlights since ours were a little higher than normal due to the load we were carrying.  Not a friendly soul in sight (of course, his lights were shining off on the side of the road looking for deer or something!)  We were almost home & decided to take the gentler right hand turn on to the road before ours (ours make a pretty sharp backward turn from the highway onto the road, the one before ours just comes up on you fast!), so Joel gently steps on the brakes & made a pretty sweet, safe turn but the tires kept squealing!  Well, the little car behind us shouldn’t have been travelling so close to a big, bad, black truck!!  Apparently in the dark & the rain, he didn’t see our 3,000 pound load or apparently our truck that he was practically driving on top of!  I don’t know how he missed us, but if he hadn’t, his cute little front end would have been in his back seat!  They say most accidents happen within 2 miles of home & guess where we were. 

I’ve got to feed the chickens & get ready for soccer.

And that’s what’s happening on the homestead!
