Just what you need in your life. More random.
Gabe had another photo session with Coach Tressel and some of the football players Wednesday. A bunch of them were standing around talking, and Tressel asked Joel Penton, “Hey, do we allow VT hats in our facility?” Guess who was wearing a VT hat? Hmmm… Joel gave Gabe a copy of The Winner’s Manual. Fun stuff. They meet again Monday with a bunch of people involved with The Main Event. Ask me on Tuesday if Gabe is still a Hokies fan. I sense some weakening resolve.
It appears I’m not the only one dreaming about zoos. Nina woke up early from her nap in a drunken stupor.
Me: (greeting her at the top of the stairs with a big grin) Well, hello, sunshine!
Nina: (dazed and confused) I wanna go more zoos! I wanna see more zebras!
Nina: (louder) I wanna go more zoos! I wanna see more zebras!
Me: Soon, sweetie, okay? We’ll go soon.
Nina: (goofy, satisfied grin)
Nina and I watched a DVD from the library this afternoon. It’s called, “Go, Potty, Go!” She seemed really into it, rockin’ along with Paige and Parker Panda and their big kid underpants. After it was over, she turned to me and said, “I not go potty! I like wear diapers!” See what I’m up against?
We got new tires on our van. Gabe found a really good deal. Praise the Lord! He had told me, “no more zoos without new tires!” Hmmmm (rubs hands together), where should we go next??
Bible study started this morning. As of 7:00 a.m., I still hadn’t decided whether I was going to do it this time or not. We don’t go to that church anymore, and Nina still isn’t potty-trained, and I’ve got a lot going on, and blah, blah, blah. Long story short, prayed about it, decided to go, knew I was supposed to when nine things happened this morning to keep me from getting out the door. It was INCREDIBLE. Beth Moore re-did her first Bible study, A Woman’s Heart, a few years ago. I’d heard great things about it, but wow. Knocked my socks off. I am so excited to dig into the Old Testament and “experience an explosion of awe” of God and His awesomeness.
Speaking of explosions, Nina had one in her diaper while I was engrossed in Beth and the Word. I walk through the toddler room door with dread after each study, wondering what the childcare workers think of me and my daughter who is bigger than everyone else in the room but still wears diapers. And gets poo all over her shorts. I’m thinking humility is on God’s list of things He wants to refine in my life. If you’ll remember, I prayed every Thursday morning during the summer session that Nina would do her business before we left for church. Back on my knees I go!
I meant to make just three or four quick, random points. What happened?! Have a great weekend, everyone!
