At least that’s what Terri says, and I think she might be right. That statement (Terri might be right) is actually pretty funny in and of itself. Maybe there’s hope for a comeback yet. I’m giving myself until Monday to be funny again. After that, it’s over.
I had so much fun with Jenny and Jodie today. Jodie was so surprised when I met her at the door! She only screamed a little, and Jenny (who went to Rio Grande) said it didn’t really count as a Cedarville scream. Turns out Jodie only lives 5 minutes farther (further?) away from me than Jenny does. For some reason, I thought her hick-stick town (no offense, Jodes!) was a lot further (farther?) away.
So, our little neighbor boy (the one from Russia) turned three today and got his hair cut for the first time. He had mounds of curls, and they were super long. Put that with his huge eyes and long lashes, and lots of people mistook him for a girl. No more. Wow–he’s stunningly, boyishly cute.
So, I’m talking to Olga (his mom) and telling her about Beki getting 10 inches of Lily’s hair cut off for Locks of Love (I had just read Beki’s blog before I went outside.). Two (2!) minutes later, my cell phone rings. “Hello! This is your long-lost friend…” It’s Beki! What in the name?! What a darling surprise in the middle of my day! I was fall-over tired, and she perked me right up. Thanks, Bek!
Jodie and Jenny reminded me of Gail and Beki today. Two sisters who love each other to bits but go back and forth and don’t see everything eye to eye. It made me laugh. I love my sisters to death, but there’s just not that same dynamic you get when there are two girls in your family and no other siblings. I love it.
My mom and dad came to Ava’s soccer game tonight. Mom happened to look at the schedule and realized it was the only time they could see her play. So we skipped Fully Engaged (I don’t teach Cubbies anymore, Terri. And tonight was the last night anyway.). Then we took a walk through the woods to the park and then through the woods some more. We saw several deer. It was a beautiful evening.
I’m loving all these new babies. Keep posting the pics, girls! They’re great! And my little sis had her first prenatal appt yesterday and heard her baby’s heartbeat. Praise the Lord! She finally believes she’s pregnant. 🙂
Tomorrow’s the last day of Bible study for the quarter, and then Friday, I’m staying home! I’ve been gone every day this week, and it’s really wearing me out. I thought April was my busy month, but now May’s filling up faster than I can say “Patty Cake, Patty Cake, Praise the Lord!” Four speaking engagements in 10 days, two birthday parties, a couple get-togethers, some soccer games. When will I find time to be funny? See how rough I have it?
So, does anybody know the real scoop on these checks the government is sending us? I was under the impression that they were just an advance on next year’s return. No? And I thought we were getting $600. But it’s lots more than that? I know there’s no such thing as a free lunch, so what’s the catch?
I think I might resume my running (jogging) regimen in the morning. It’s getting way too easy to just lounge in bed an extra hour or so .
Gabe posted a few new pics on Flickr if you want to check them out. Have a thankful Thursday!
