The Brothers Grimm-

My sister read this to me-

[Frame has a dog, Grimmy, digging through a trash can and his friend looking suprised beside him]

"Grimmy! I thought you made a new years resolution to give up eating out of trash cans!"

"I gave up my new years resolution for lent!"

Babies, babies everywhere! [07 Mar 2004|11:40pm]
[ mood | giddy ]
[ music | water running somewhere ]

I do believe this ALL started a few days ago when David was really bored. I started talking to him and asked what he was doing. He announced he was looking at baby names. Odd. Especially for a guy. He must have been very bored. Anyway, ever since then, it seems as though everybody everywhere is talking about... babies! My friend is about to have a baby in May. Another older friend just announced she's due right before my birthday with her first. Then, today at church, we found out that the new lady might be pregnant! Although hers is the story that I wish to tell in this entry. It is truly remarkable to me and so encouraging as you think, "Wow, God really works in mysterious ways throughout EVERY detail of our life!"

Leslie and Dan have only been coming to our church for about a month. Until they came, the next youngest people in the adult department were the pastor and his wife right after me. Lesly and Dan are slightly younger, about 37, but to me, that's not THAT much younger. Well, due to my mother's leaving, we're in need of a new highschool/young adult leader for Sundays and Thursdays. After approaching everyone in the church, it has become obvious they are either unwilling or insecure about taking that position. Most, in fact, are too old to do much at all currently. Well, this morning, my mother approached Leslie, I suppose, because I was watching from a distance and saw Leslie discuss it, but then lean and whisper something in my mother's ear. This sparked my curiousity. I'm much too curious for my own good. Always have been, probably always will be. Is that a bad thing? Hmmm, more thoughts on that later.

I walked up as Leslie and Mom were discussing details and how it would be very simple to teach etc. I made a comment, but that's when they decided to let me in on the little secret - Leslie thinks she is pregnant! Here's the truly amazing part...

She's been told by 4 different doctors for 20 years that she would never be able to have children!

continuing with my story... )

Random ramblings [07 Mar 2004|08:44pm]
[ mood | happy ]
[ music | something on the radio ]

I'm walking a bit better now, though my mother caught sight of the blisters on my feet from walking all over tarnation (is that a word? I don't think I've ever seen it spelled out!) with the wrong shoes on and shot me a sympathetic look. I had to go clean the church with Wendy. However, after cleaning one building, my poor sister came out to the main room, assumed the fetal position on the floor, turned deathly green and tried to stop her stomach from convulsing. I quickly finished up and on the way home, I stopped in the store to find a particular medicine that we use that stops that type of thing and you can take it every 30 minutes until your symptoms go away. While Wendy was searching for the medicine, she directed me to go pick up some vanilla ice cream. It took me a minute before I realized why, because we don't usually buy ice cream. Then I remembered - we'd brought home half of an apple pie and a whole blueberry pie from the church, along with our usual loaves of bread. Wendy was trying to be nice to Daddy by bringing home his favourite pie and remembering to pair ice cream with it too!

The funniest part - we walked into the house and Mom was exercising, but told us to go ahead and take it all back to show my dad. When we walked back to the office, told him to close his eyes and came in to suprise him, he opened his eyes, saw the ice cream and pies and had to laugh. He'd already been out to the store while we were gone to pick up ice cream for Momma because she had a craving! I walked back out, laughing and mockingly acted disappointed when I told Mom he'd already gotten ice cream tonight. She said, "Yes, I know, but I didn't want to disappoint you until you'd had fun with your suprise. Still, it was a sweet thought!" My mommy can be so considerate sometimes! She loves to have fun with us too!

I need to remember to talk to my parents about our van. Driving to the church, the van was veering so much to the right and, at times, feeling like I was driving on ice when it was a perfectly dry, clear night, that I pulled over as soon as possible to check for flat tires. I really wished I had found one. Our tires are going to have to be replaced, at least in front, before we drive to Texas in 3 weeks. The struts need to be replaced too. It was as I feared, though. No flat tires, just scary handling. I'd rather have a flat tire that could be fixed than have a vehicle that wouldn't drive properly! Especially considering that, driving to the church, there are NO street lights really anywhere and the painted lines on the road are GONE. Absolutely, completely GONE. Thank you, treehuggers who insist on "environmentally sound" traction being spread in the winter for ice. Whatever happened to good ol' salt?! If we had salt, it would melt off eventually, but this lava rock stuff is BAD. It merely acts as an exfoliant for the roads, rubbing them smooth and rubbing off all paint. I shall be glad to leave this place. (Well, the place itself, not the people. *sniffle*)

fun with friends... [07 Mar 2004|12:30am]
[ mood | exhausted ]
[ music | Honey I'm Home - Shania Twain ]

Well, yesterday around 3 o' clock, my mother's friend came over with her two daughters that are about me and my sister's ages. They came over to show the younger daughter's (who is my age) dress she got for a formal dinner while she's going to be in Texas. We'll be at the same event, so it was fun to see and discuss the types of accessories that could go with the dress. It's a lovely floor length black and white gown. It has panels of white and black that make up the skirt, gathered at the waist with tiny bows. Earlier, we had made plans to get together 2 weeks ago, but last week my mother was sick so the plans were canceled. I had completely forgotten about it. However, while they were over visiting in the afternoon, their mother brought it up and rapid plans were made for them to just stay and spend the night. So they did. We ordered pizza and had a grand time. We went to rent videos. The irony of that was we ended up watching videos my family already owned! Oh well. We've made other plans for them to come over Tuesday with their mother and watch one of the movies we rented.

out wit da girls - and one brother )

My newest journal! [05 Mar 2004|06:01pm]
[ mood | hungry ]
[ music | Thriller - Michael Jackson ]

Basically, I've created this journal to keep my dearest friend, Angela, up to date on various happenings in my life. At the moment, she's not able to view my other journal I post on frequently (www.livejournal.com/~lucky17pennies) so I've agreed to post here too! Currently, I have a slight headache. I'm delaying going and playing video games with a few friends that over. They're with my sister at the moment. We all made last minute plans to have them stay over, even though I didn't totally agree to it. I'm waiting on dinner to be delivered. I really am thankful I have friends to spend time with while I'm able to before we move to Texas. After we move to Texas, there won't be any girls around my age that I'll know.

Well, since the pizza is here, I'll cut it short... I hear food calling to me and my headache...

In everything, give thanks to the Lord for He is good!

(I also want a client for writing in this... does one exist?)
