Well, it’s Monday morning. Little Miss Sassy Pants is at school and right now Buddy and I are drinking our morning coffee and watching cartoons. The big news for today is that one of our four kitty babies is getting a new home. Little Beans is going to be the birthday present for a 13 year old girl…her mother is coming to pick her up this afternoon. I am a little worried about Sassy Pants. She’s already had one good crying jag over Beans and I’m afraid there will be lots of tears and sadness today.
Have I told you that we are potty training Buddy? He is doing so well!! In fact he has slept in undies the last two nights and has had zero accidents in bed. We did have a few episodes yesterday though. We went to some friends house for lunch after church and about halfway through lunch their daughter came downstairs and announced that one of the dogs had pooped in her closet. Upon further investigation we realized that it was in fact NOT dog poop. Yep…Buddy pooped in our friends closet. I would have been mortified…but they have a 3 year old little boy that is potty training too…so they totally got it! lol.
Let’s see…what else can I tell you? So far this is a very cool and wet spring for the South. We have had so much rain and so much flooding. I’m not crazy about temperatures that are above 100 degrees, but I do wish it would warm up and dry out a bit here! Have you heard about all the tornadoes? Alabama and Georgia were hit really hard a month or so ago and Joplin was hit hard last night. I was watching it live on tv when the tornado went through Alabama and it was just devastating to watch. I couldn’t even think to pray coherently and all that came out of my mouth was “Jesus have Mercy!” over and over. I get a knot in my stomach just thinking about it.
I found out this morning that the town where our sister Anne lives has declared a state of emergency. I don’t know if it was an actual tornado that went through there or just a bad storm but it knocked her apple tree over. There is something deep down inside of me that really thinks it’s possible that we will see the Lord’s return in our lifetime. With all the storms, earthquakes and volcano’s erupting lately I wonder if all of this is the earth groaning.
I have been feeling ok lately…I always have issues with my Lyme, but some days are a lot better than others. Lately I’ve noticed how bad my memory is (Lyme does this). We were at Hubby’s parents church the other day for a music special when a lady that we were talking to recognized Little Miss Sassy Pants. She asked if Sassy Pants had been in her vacation bible school class last summer. I swore up and down that Sassy had never been to VBS and that I wasn’t sure where she recognized her from. It wasn’t until we were on our way home that I remembered that Sassy HAD gone to VBS! That poor lady at church must have thought I was NUTS! lol…we had a good laugh over that.
I’ve been reading in 1 Samuel about David’s life lately. Sometimes I get frustrated that we always seem to have “issues”. Health issues, money issues etc. I long for life to be easy and pain free. But in reading about David I was reminded that his life wan’t easy either! His brothers were jealous of him and his king (whom he was loyal too) spent years chasing him and trying to kill him because he was jealous of David. I guess that maybe God doesn’t call us to easy lives. Food for thought.
How are you and Melly doing? Are you guys excited about our little family vacation together in June? I am!!
Ok, brother of mine…I have to get going. It’s just about time to pick Little Miss Sassy Pants up from school and I’ve got to get Buddy ready to go. Mostly I have to give him a chance to go potty before we get in the car!
