Yesterday I took the Christmas tree down. We have a live tree and it's been up for over a month. It was a mess. I had to break branches to get the ornaments off, that's how dead and hard it was. I love Christmas, but it's always good to get things back in order.
A friend of Freddy T.'s, and ours, has been living with us for 2 months and yesterday he moved to Brooklyn. We've been reserving our extra bedroom for a family helper to join us this year, but it's not going to work out for that to happen right now. While I was really excited and hopeful about having an extra set of hands around here, I'm trusting God for his provision and strength (I'd appreciate any prayers in this area). On the positive side, we gained an extra bedroom and I'm grateful for the space. We are trying to decide exactly how we'll use the room, we have several ideas.
Hopefully in the next few days we'll be a smooth running machine around here and I'll get back to my regular blogging. Till then will you entertain me? According to Google Analytics we get about 100 hits a day on this blog. I'm often shocked when someone tells me they follow the blog. I'm going to be around here all day today working at home, so will you add a little spice to my day and let me know who you are? I want to know your name and your city and state. Make sure you leave your blog address too if you keep one. I'm sure there are many I'd love to follow if I only knew you blogged. So, if I know you or not, let me know who you are!
Off to more straightening... after I dry my hair. Did you catch that? Shower, blogging, dry hair, then back to work... maybe my priorities are a little out of order this morning!
