This and That

I know I haven't posted much lately. I have been rather wrapped up in real life instead. Living it instead of writing it. We've been looking at a house, and all the 'fun' stuff that goes with it. At this point I don't think we're going to get it. It would be great, and perfect and exactly what I would want in a property, but if it doesn't come now, it will at some point. If I'm anything, I'm pretty patient.

Hubs was off work for 2 days over the weekend. That never happens. Maybe once or twice a year. Sunday we worked on getting the pool ready. Yeah, I know, work on Sunday...Jesus is my sabbath rest, but I still try to keep a literal sabbath day. This week didn't happen, not fully anyway. Monday we spent the day putting new molding around the kitchen, and some of the living room. It didn't' get finished. We needed another day or two. Then, I'm going to paint all the rooms. If we're going to live here a little longer, then I want it to look a bit fresher and newer. I may break down and redo the kitchen cabinets too. That would be soooo nice!! I've wanted new cabinets for several years now.

Last week I had some weird stuff going on with my body too. Nothing is more irritating than when one's own body gets a glitch. It's personal, but it's fixed now.

We have been working on the final push for the end of the year (homeschooling). 10yo was doing pretty well and keeping up a good attitude. It was my fault we fell behind. I had a breakdown of sorts this past Jan-Feb. I was of no earthly good. We accomplished much less than we should have school-wise. Now we're having to make it up, even though we'd rather be doing summer vacation type things.

In between all those earthly happenings, I've been closely watching what's happening down in Florida. I've watched via GodTV nearly every night. People are popping out of wheelchairs, throwing away canes, and claiming to be "missing" tumors. Praise God that He is still in the miracle working business. I've been praying, praising and worshiping right along with them. The other day, I was looking for some fresh news about the Outpouring, ... Maybe that's a whole 'nother post. Yup. I think it may be.
