This week has flown by and we are back to our normal crazy schedule…I haven’t had any time to sit and draw or do anything fun. I did catch a little American Idol yesterday. That was too funny…the old guy, Larry…who sang “pants on the floor” just cracked me up! I probably needed a good laugh.
I’ve been a little on edge this week. I don’t really know why, I mean, I don’t really have a good reason. It just seems like little things are stressing me out. Today I have been worried all day because I had no one to watch Jasmin tomorrow. My babysitter is leaving tomorrow on a trip with her family, and I didn’t know about it till a couple of days ago. I was really stressing out because I really didn’t want to take a day off, but wasn’t sure what else I could do when I had called everyone I could think of. Finally I called my friend Angie, and she was totally willing to take her for the day. Didn’t even hesitate! How awesome is that? I didn’t even need to worry about it…and won’t need to. She’ll have a blast with her kids, I am sure.
My emotions have been all over the place…a friend/co-worker of mine passed away yesterday. She has been battling cancer for over a year. We knew it would happen soon. It’s just hard to let her go. I wasn’t super close to Randi, but just knowing she’s gone is so sad. She was a great teacher and friend to all of us. We have missed her…but the best thing is that we know she is with God in Heaven.
I was talking to Savannah the other day when I was tucking her in and she was telling me how one of her classmates keeps saying mean things about her and to her…she is devastated…she cried. She has also been very scared lately about our house burning down. We talked about how fear is from Satan and that God protects us and watches over us. Then I remembered that verse that she read in church a while back, and reminded her that if God cares for little birdies and lilies he will certainly take care of us. I think I need to remind myself of that verse, once in a while, too.
Anyway, busy weekend…Savannah’s birthday…and a bunch of other stuff.
And, I still haven’t taken down any Christmas decorations! This is the latest I have ever had them up! Though, when I drove to Walmart tonight, I noticed at least 3 houses that still had lit up Christmas trees inside…so that made me feel better about it. Maybe I can get to it this weekend.
