I leave at lunch on Friday to go to the Women of Faith conference in Ft. Worth/Dallas. My friend Amy and I are going with her sister's church. Keep us all in your prayers... I mean, 100 women on a charter bus driving to the metroplex... don't you feel sorry for the bus driver???? haha! I'll tell you all about it when I get back!

The pool was very relaxing and cool after the heat from the first venture of the day... and it would have been perfect except for the flying ants that were ALL OVER THE POOL! You could tell the manager wasn't there too, because the lifeguards/kids would get in, skim for about 3 seconds, hop out and call it good...meanwhile, my children were no so happy about the ants and even I was having a difficult time making myself want to hop in with the ants. I wish I had a picture of the suckers... they were scary looking. Bigger than fire ants, smaller than red ants, BIG WINGS! Anyway, we made it about 2 hrs and then we headed home.
These next pics are from my adventure this morning! We were taking my daughters friend home to Cleburne, as well as their refrigerator that we had borrowed when we moved into their house. I made it all the way up HWY 80 to I-20, pulled onto I-20, hadn't reached 45mph yet, and realized the fridge was FLYING THROUGH THE AIR! It hit the asphalt and went sliding towards the 18 wheeler that was behind me! Luckily, no one was injured and other than a few tires squealing, there were no accidents. A very nice good Samaritan stopped and helped me load the fridge back into the truck and I took it all back to Robert at work. So much for taking Charis back to her parents... the fridge was not that heavy when Robert and I loaded it this morning... pretty sure I did something to my back just now though... I have taken a muscle relaxer, anti-inflammatory, and am perched on the couch with a bag of frozen broccoli behind my back (the only frozen thing I could find to work)! Anyway, now I must find another fridge to give my friend to replace the one that had met it's demise!
All I can say is God is good, because it could have been soooo much worse, and holy cow! why does my life have to be soooo interesting?

Now, if only I could convince both of my daughters that she is right!
(Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to embed it... something about a tag being broken??????)

I'm trying to think positive thoughts about how this is practice for the beginning of school in a couple of weeks, but I just can't! I want to sleep late and I hate mornings! I keep hearing friends that are older than me talk about how they can't sleep late and go to bed earlier now... when is that going to happen to me? I mean, I don't remember ever having to wake my mother up to tell her we were going to be late... she was just always awake before me. Was it this hard for her to get up? What about you, friends, how are mornings in your house? Will I ever reach the point where I 'can't' sleep in? At what age does that exactly happen, cuz I'm pretty sure I've heard people my age who 'can't sleep in!' Does it just all of a sudden happen? Or will it come on gradually? ha! Ok, I think you get the point!
And although I've gone to bed at a decent hour each night, It's like I'm a walking zombie by 3. Today, it's even worse... Megs called at 11:20 to ask where her lunch was... I was supposed to be picking it up... OOPS! I completely forgot! That's not the only thing I have forgotten... and while individually it all appears to be little things, I'm sick of getting home and realizing I forgot things! Maybe I should take some ginseng or something... or wait, I have a better idea... I could just sleep til 8am and my brain would function better... ha! In my dreams...
Anyway, hope everyone is having a great day!

If you can't read it... it says... "Smile. People will wonder what you've been up to!" Made me laugh!
My other piece said "Be mischievous. It feels good." Perhaps not such a good piece of advice, since it is something I struggle with already! Oh well, hope everyone is having a great day!
