Tomorrow Feels Like Friday

I have had nothing to write. I've kind of had a heavy heart and been...thoughtful. But nothing to blog. So here's a snapshot of today. Bubbles, running, and monkeys (Linda, if you're reading this, Maxwell and Ella have rediscovered the darling sock monkeys you made for them and they love them. I think they relate to them...seeing as they are monkeys themselves these days. They look at the monkeys, then each other, and say 'Oo oh! Ah ah!' OVER AND OVER).

Things this week that have made me smile: Ella chiming in on the things I say to Maxwell.
-Me: "Come over here buddy, I need to put your shoes on." To which she looks at him and says, "Hi Buddy."
-Me: "Honey, please don't hit me with your back back, that hurts Mommy. Ella: "Honey, no hut Mommy."

Things that made me frown:
-Student loans. 
-My back in a sundress (you know how there are areas of your body that have always been a bummer? My tummy has never been flat, that's just been part of me. I know to expect it and I'm over it. But I had on a sundress and my back and arms looked chubby-Eck. New area to hide).  Although I've been eating better the past two weeks and feel good about it. Baby steps.
-Finding my hairbrush in the toilet. Thanks kiddos.

Things that gave me hope:

Psalm 71

 1 In you, LORD, I have taken refuge;
   let me never be put to shame.
2 In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me;
   turn your ear to me and save me.
3 Be my rock of refuge,
   to which I can always go;
give the command to save me,
   for you are my rock and my fortress.
4 Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,
   from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.

And a call from Mike that said he's coming home Wednesday, not Thursday. Which makes tomorrow feel like Friday :)

My personal favorite is Psalm 61:2.

"From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I."

Max and Ella are so cute. I love hearing what kids say.

My new "fat" I need to hide is armpit fat. You would've believe how bad they look! lol

I have something to add to your list . But, first a question.
WHen you found your hairbrush in the toilet, was there poop in there too? depending on your answer you could add that to your list of good/bad things... ha.
