100 Things About Me and How God is Good in the Clouds of Life

In the tradition of blogging, when you get to your 100th post you are supposed to write “100 THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF”. So, here goes… 1.) I almost drowned at my sixth birthday “pool party”. 2.) The funny thing was that I accepted the dare to swim across the pool in a floaty race. 3.) A […]

Unbelievably Unbreakable, Huh?

I was combing through an old purse and I found a comb which had the words : “unbreakable” embossed on the side. I thought, Yep…it still has all of it’s teeth. Then, a hair-brained thought broke into my childish brain…”Is it really unbreakable? How unbreakable is it?” So, I tried to bend it. Just as […]

It’s the Little Things!

Six weeks ago, I slipped on a cold puddle of water in the kitchen. I was unloading hot bowls from the “just-finished” dishwasher, and I was walking fast (due to the temperature of the bowls). Then, WHAM!— down I went with three stacked ceramic bowls (the bottom broke—the bowl, not..uh…mine)! It all happened so fast, […]

Man, It’s Hot In Here!

Well, last night was a scorcher! I thought I had a fever—I was burning up! This morning, BC told me it sounded like our A/C unit was not working (it wasn’t making a sound on the outside at all). That was definitely not cool. So, the good news—I was not sick…(just sick of things breaking). […]

Relay For Life Fund-Raisers—2009: The Year of the Donkey!

This year for Relay, we had a Partylite candle party (20% going to Relay), a garage sale, and some sweet friends donated their lovely donkey collection (over 100). The kids attached a note on each donkey that read, “Thanks to your donation, cancer is on BURRO’D time!” (Heehaw…BC came up with that one!). We gave […]

My Dad Makes Me Laugh!

Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday! In honor of this wonderful man and awesome dad, I have to blog about a funny story that happened awhile back. The story I’m about to tell you has made me laugh so much over the years (and anyone who knows me, knows that I love to laugh). Okay, let’s […]

Garage Sale: big deals…not just price cuts!

Yesterday and today, we had a garage sale to mark the seventh “anniversary” of the day we heard those words: “Your daughter has cancer!” We just praise the LORD for His mercy. All of our proceeds will be going to The American Cancer Society. It went pretty well yesterday, despite the early rain, and the […]

They’re Called Nose Pads, Not Nose Pieces!

If you wear glasses, one thing that you may commonly have had to fix or replace is your nose pieces. I think the proper name for them is nose pads. After playing volleyball the other day, Paige and I both broke our nose pads. I was telling my six-year-old that Paige and I were going […]

Praying for a break?

Around two years ago, my husband and I managed to both break a foot bone during the same week. It really set us back, and physical activity was slowed down dramatically…not to mention our metabolisms. So we are thrilled to be working out together again on a regular basis. In case you want to hear […]

The Christmas it Snowed on the Inside, and the Outside!

Posted under LOL, The Unexpected, Those Are The Breaks! - Dec 17th, 08 - 1 Comment

During one of our Christmas Play practices, some children mentioned the possibility of using styrofoam peanuts to make it look like snow. I quickly shot that idea down. Yes, I know it sounds like harmless fun, but I have a true story to tell. It was Christmas Eve…2004 We (the older women-my mom and three […]
