Listening: to the news talk about the horrific tornado that happened in Oklahoma. I can not imagine the what those families are feeling right now. I am so sad for them.

 Loving: that #1 and P*Tricky brought me a Sonic Iced Tea. I love a good iced tea, with crushed ice.  It makes me happy.

 Thinking: about all the stuff I need to get done before the 2013 Youth Mission Trip to South Dakota. 

  • plan the menu and get the grocery list together
  • morning devotions written
  • evening devotions written
  • make sure I have the right clothes
  • make sure the 3 kids I have going on the trip with me have what they need
  • plan for my business stuff while I'm away
  • itinerary plans for the trip
  • itinerary plans for the kids that stay home. (they are much happier and treat #1 better when I write down everything they are suppose to do)

Wanting: to find my STUPID car title.

Needing: (see above)

Stalking:  All paperwork in my house… because I'm looking for my stupid car title… :/

I *AM* Good At Things…

A book about nothing.. that I love.. and makes me laugh.

This week has been crazy…. what am I talking about?  This last few months have been pretty nuts. Here's an overview of what I've done this summer.. (not in any particular order)

  • Planned and went on a 7 day mission trip with 20 people… where I was responsible for their entertainment, health, well being and spiritual growth.  I was also responsible for food for 20 for breakfast, 60 for lunch and 20 for dinner… oh and snacks.
  • Youth Sunday: where the youth and I plan an entire Sunday Morning Service.. and I usually give the sermon.
  • Write and deliver a sermon
  • Deal with a stalker, and a few insane people that I seem to let bother me.
  • Deal with 7 children that have different personalities and believe at any given time they are RIGHT.. and everyone else is not.
  • Receive 2 traffic tickets totaling $300.00
  • I'm a mandated reporter.. (enough said about that)
  • VBS for 5 nights.. and planning what I hope are cool crafts..
  • Hosted several dinner parties at my house (FUN!)
  • Stayed up every night to watch the Olympics.. because I've been at VBS. 🙂
  • Had an older couple hit my car and LEAVE the scene.
  • Finished up School… only to seem like I have woke up and I have to start getting ready for it again.
  • I've tried to keep my business running.. while doing all that stuff.

I think I have gotten off topic… ANYWAY.. . this little book makes me happy.  When I feel down, I just open it up and check off a few things I am good at… Here are a few for today:

  • Getting Kids to share their toys.
  • Getting Adults to share their toys. (I use shame)
  • Organizing Mission Trips
  • Planning crafts for VBS
  • Adapting crafts for VBS
  • Starting many single blog entries and not finishing them.
  • Using Q-Tips responsibly.
  • Finding new crafty uses for Q-Tips
  • Being cool with closet chaos.  (I'm not.. but I can act like it)
  • Portioning food out evenly
  • Capturing the moment
  • Watching the Olympics while pretending to be listening to others around me
  • Not freaking out
  • Remembering what used to be there
  • Cat Sitting
  • Resisting the urge to eat all the cheese right after grating it.
  • Listening to people tell me how homeschooling is going to make my children not social… (it happened)
