I have been a slacker, I know. We have been super busy this past week.

We have been here.

I am having trouble getting my camera to focus on something besides the chainlink fence!
We are having a garage sale today and tomorrow so every night has been filled with getting stuff ready. My lovely sister is working it today and I have to do it tomorrow. I am sitting her thinking about what I will spend my loot on and I happen to look at the living room window with its 70's style drapes. I think I will go to Lowe's and get me shades and a new rod. I have said I was going to do this for the past 2-3 years and haven't done it yet. Well this is the year. I will post photos of before and after for you.
Yesterday was my last day at the new job! Monday I go back to my old job. I am excited to go home. I liked everyone at the new job but it just wasn't the same and they didn't really need me, I spent half my time twiddling my thumbs. The girls at the old job say I better be ready because they are swamped and working lots of overtime. I won't mind that, we can use the extra cash.
Last night on my way home I was listening to KLRC our christian music station, Focus on the Family is on everynight around 7pm. Last night they played a clip from Beth Moore on marriage. I just love that women to death. She can make me see things in scripture that I never would have gotten out by myself. She talked on Ephesians 5:21. It really brought it home to me how my husband is supposed to be the head of the household and we are called to submit to each other. She also talked about how as women we always want more. When your husband tells you that you made a good supper, you wonder why he didn't say it was a great supper. That is just my example but I do this. Her point was no marriage is ever going to be perfect and why can't good just be good enough. If it was great you would want it to be fantastic. I have to learn to be content with good because good is GOOD!
My house is a wreck from going thru closets and getting our summer stuff out. I have been on the computer for the past hour and a half so I should turn on the tunes and get busy.

Hi Pam!

What wonderful thoughts. And so true! Good luck with your garage sale tomorrow! I know that is tons of work. But it feels so good to have everything cleaned out!

You should totally buy those window coverings!

Hey Pam! You sure hit home with me on the "why can't good be good enough"! I am that way with Rod about dinner ALL the time! I so needed to hear that today! Thanks! Good luck with your yard sale.....I will try and come by, but I'm not sure what the day holds for us yet, except for baseball, and at 1:00p.m. too! I'm sure it's going to be HOT HOT HOT! Hope to see you at church on Sunday (hint hint, I miss you there!).
