Well, I lived. I didn’t cry. I only got mildly frustrated. I got my eyebrows done…with absolutely no redness. I’m going to ask Bev to give Carolyn a raise. My aunt is in town from MA, so we’re spending the night in Philadelphia 🙂 Woohoo! I’ll write more tomorrow… Until then….have a fabulous night!
Yesterday was a tough day. Today, I’m going in on the offense. I have plans, spreadsheets and goals for today. I don’t work well in chaos, but I think that when you are helping someone begin something new, you have to understand and experience their chaos to understand what will make them work in anContinue reading “Chaos to order”
Today I re-entered what some consider to be “the real world.” I am now working in a salon. As a receptionist/marketing person/coffee & food grabber/anything else that needs to be doner. Yeah. Today I accomplished…well…nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Though I did get my hair colored and cut. Tomorrow I have to get the nuts andContinue reading “Working gal”
OK. I promised myself that I wouldn’t post another blog tonight, but…I just finished my annual viewing of It’s a Wonderful Life, and well…yeah. This year I picked up a lot of things that I never saw before. For instance, George Bailey is a rather sarcastic fellow. I don’t recall him ever saying, “Yeah, youContinue reading “It’s a Wonderful Life 2006”
I can’t wait until tomorrow. I’m overwhelmed by the generosity of my church. I’ve heard so many reports of things that our people are buying for the families in Voorhees. I’ve become overwhelmed, almost to the point of tears just listening to people talk, excited about their purchases. I have no idea how I’m goingContinue reading “Random Saturdayness”
There are so many things that I love about God. On some days, those are the same characteristics that I hate about Him. Did I just say that? Out loud? (Not really…I wrote it.) For the last two mornings I woke up and watched Joyce Meyer. She has been teaching on managing your emotions…something thatContinue reading “From "reality" to faith”
All summer long, my sister, my parents and I lament that we cannot grow grass. Our front lawn looks like a war zone…a field of dirt with a few spots of grass and lots of maple tree roots. Well, I’m glad that we don’t have grass. Grass is not something to fight for, to desire,Continue reading “The grass in not always greener on the other side”
I’m making a commitment to myself right now. I am not going to watch The View again. Rosie O’Donnell, Barbara Walters and Joy positively made my skin crawl and my blood boil today. So, there you have it.
I had a great coffee time today with an old friend. I think that God has really begun something interesting…just thinking of it is making me smile. She made the comment that is the title of this blog to someone who invited her to a women’s retreat at her church. I laughed OUT LOUD whenContinue reading “I"m looking for budweiser, but you’re offering me bud light”
I feel the weight of your displeasure, but I do not know what has brought us to this point…again. I’m trying to understand the workings of you brain, of you feelings, of your emotions, but how am I supposed to grasp something that you will not communicate? I want to live in peace, not inContinue reading “I feel the weight of your displeasure, but I do no…”
