A Day to Rest?

Meet the new faces -
Pause, Pickles, and Sarah.

Well, not really. I did need to clean my house today. As I was getting my coffee ready and feeding the kids cereal I noticed my eldest son's sunglasses on the top of the fridge.
My 5 yr. old also notice them as I commented on them.
He asked me, "Can I have them?"
My reply,"No."
He states, "I want them. I am blind. Logan looks wierd."
I had to laugh.

It's 9:45 Am CST and I have opted to keep my scrub top on as it has pockets so I can stash a small clock to keep up with the time. I am getting my morning routine started and done. I like getting my routine done as it helps keep me motivated through out the day to have things accomplished. *later in day* It's now 1:30pm CST and even though I have most of my morning routine done I am finding that I am getting tired. I have picked at things with no real rhyme or reason and have a monkey climbing on me nearly constantly.

I have several favorite sayings and my most used one currently is that "Life is carved in jello. The Jello gets hot and melts. When it cools you have to start carving all over again." A few I have shared in the past and recently are -- "Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons. For you are crunchy and good with ketchup!" and "Blessed are those who are flexible, for they are not easily bent."

I talked to my adopted daughter the other day. I am not her biological mother, but I love her as if she were my own. She called me to tell me what's going on with her physically, and to get some advice. She's struggling physically with pain so I am praying for healing concerning that, and that the doctors can help her too. She asked me for advice concerning some choices she's been offered in the way of getting a more permanent place to stay, a personal car and college/career classes. I offered advice in the respect she's got to have a place to live and those classes would be a huge benefit. To take baby steps in accomplishing short and long term goals. I keep her in thoughts and prayers that she will take my advice to heart and that the Lord will offer her some understanding in why I said get a home first, then worry about personal transportation. I love her a great deal even though I don't get to talk to her often and I always wonder how she's managing. She's very intelligent and loving. I do hope she reaches out and accomplishes what tasks she's had placed before her.

*groans* Do you know how hard it is to clean a room with a 2 yr old helper, 1 adult cat and 5 kittens all piled up under your feet??? Only trained professionals should attempt this feat! Yeash!
