Today feels like one of the longest days I’ve had in a long time. Nothing dramatic or shocking happened. It was just a long. day. The girls and I spent the night at Mom’s house last night so we wouldn’t have to get up extra early for the yard sale and the kids would be able to sleep if they so chose, which they did not so choose. Anyway, we woke up, opened the garage door and saw that it was pouring rain. A little panic set in but my immediate reaction was…let’s go to Starbucks. So Emma went with me and we picked up some breakfast. By the time I got back the rain was letting up, we started setting up and the yard sale was off! A full 7 hours and many rain showers later, we pushed everything back into the garage and decided to do it again next weekend. Not because it didn’t go well, because it did. It’s just we had that much stuff.
This afternoon we ran up to Babies R Us to help Jake and Jill register for stuff for THEIR BABY. I don’t think I’ve mentioned on here yet that they’re adopting and expecting on Christmas Eve!! As to be expected with any expecting parent, they were a bit lost in a sea of baby products. I went to give them a helping hand, but they were doing just fine…just like I know they will soon too.
When I got home I was just exhausted. Scott was already back at work and I sat down with the girls on the couch. No TV, no music, no books, no toys. Just sat there. Of course Emma says, This is boring! We couldn’t agree on what to do for dinner. Normally I just tell them but I didn’t even have the energy to decide on that. Somehow we all agreed on Steak ‘n Shake. I guess the promise of milkshakes will make anyone agree.
That seemed to pump some energy in us and we spent the evening straightening up, painting, reading and just hanging out at home. Once the kids were in bed this evening, I finished up some laundry and then ran myself a bath. You know it’s bad if I take a bath.
So yeah, the clock has just struck Sunday and I signed up for a 15 minute prayer session for our campaign at church tomorrow at midnight…so Saturday will be gone for me in 15 minutes and a mighty long one it was.
