Anyhow, I had a really fantastic post planned for you today. And by "fantastic" I mean slightly less mediocre and slightly more interesting than usual. Unfortunately I cannot find my camera, and the post would probably be slightly MORE mediocre and LESS interesting without the pictures.
So instead, a list for your reading
1 - I was pleasantly surprised, and more than a little excited, to discover that both Danny AND Kris have made it to the top 3 in American Idol. I might have let out a small squeal of excitement when they announced Kris' name. Maybe.
*And I have it on good authority that Kris Allen leads worship at a church in his hometown. Y'all? He loves Jesus! And he's cute! And he's a great singer! As I mentioned earlier, if he wasn't married and I wasn't married, we would definitely be an item. Just sayin'
2 - However, my husband is the best. I just got flowers in the mail. Literally just got them while I was in the middle of typing. I'm a lucky gal, that's for sure.
3 - I went to the gym for a Body Core class this morning. This class focuses (um obviously) on the "core" (abs!!) which is clearly my problem area. Clearly.
Unfortunately, my core strength is currently minimal to none, so the whole balancing on the ball thing? Didn't work out so well for me. Turns out that Praise Aerobics wasn't always the hardest workout. Well besides that one time when we had to run suicides in front of the third graders. That time was hard.
4 - I have been surprisingly productive this morning, I went to the gym AND I made homemade baby food. Just call me Martha Stewart. Well Martha with a messy house and mounds of dirty clothes.
Actually, making homemade baby food consists of the following steps:
- boiling water
- adding frozen organic vegetables to boiling water
- blending up with this fancyee mashy thingy we have (see!? I'm such a gourmet chef I know all the proper terminology!)
- putting the blended vegetables into small glass jars and placing into fridge.
*I know this is exceedingly complex, if you need further explanation of these steps, I completely understand.
Luckily, these steps are fairly similar to those used to make my stand-by culinary masterpiece: Kraft macaroni and cheese. So I'm basically a pro.
Anyhow, this morning I made peas. I hate peas. And now my house smells like peas, which literally causes me to gag every time I walk in the door. And also to have flashbacks to sitting at the table UNTIL I ATE EVERY LAST PEA. But I knew it was going to kill me, and I gagged repeatedly, and wished we had a dog I could feed them to. I would sit there for HOURS people.
5 - I seriously cannot thank-you enough for all your prayers and comments on Savior's story. You are blessing him (and me) without him even knowing it - I just love how God works! Mysterious ways and everything.
Several of you have asked if there's anything else you can do to help (besides prayer which is obviously the very best thing you can do). I am working on getting together some different ideas of ways y'all can be involved and help. I'll keep you posted. For now, if you are interested in helping, contact me via email (Becca1612@hotmail.com).
