Multitude Monday

Okay, Misty, here it is.

It has been quite a weekend, and I think once again, I am in need of remembering things I am grateful for.

11. A fantastic sister. Seriously, she is so great.

12. great music on my Ipod

13. wonderful grandparents

14. Watching my grandfather so lovingly care for the waning love of his life. I know it is a hard and taxing job, but his devotion to her blows me away. I hope I have even a little bit of his devotion and love in me.

15. A little girl who took it upon herself to take her diaper off and poop in the potty while mommy was on the phone. Such a pleasant surprise.

16. An impending trip to San Francisco!

17. fresh watermelon

18. no accidents so far this morning

19. coming home to an amazingly clean house-it is so welcoming to come home to a house that is tidy.

20. An amazig husband who sent me to Waco for the weekend no questions asked even though he had to work Sat. morning. And then cleaned the house for me while he was home with the buggle by himself. Blessed, blessed, blessed.

picture post

I am so bad about postinf pictures, because I get so lazy, so here are our adventures since April. I'm feeling too lazy to make up captions right now, so feel free to make up your own.

Random bits

Okay, just a little bored today and not willing to fight battles that I should (i.e. taking away the jellybeans Zoey is currently playing with and making her go sit on the potty). Just feeling lazy. What is a girl to do? Blog of course!
Here are some funny things that have happened recently:

John sat on the plane next to a professional hunter/conservationalist. Doesn't sound that bad does it? Howevver, it was a woman named Samantha who gave him her business card. On one side was her actual picture-pretty professional looking. On the other side is a full lenght cartoony looking picture of her looking like an ad for a hunter/stripper. In other words, huge boobs pretty much hanging out. It is hilarious. I mean really? What does that have to do with hunting? It looks a little like an adult halloween costume ad for a vixern hunter. Cheese o rama. Also, Kelly pointed out, how can you be a hunter and a conservationalist? Hmm. Good point.
One of my worst nightmares came to fruition last week. Zoey walked in on the hubs and I. I think you know what I mean. I am afraid that I have scarred her for life. Yeesh. Talk about akward moments. All the sudden we heard, "Hi! I wake up!" If I hadn't been so mortified, I would have thought the whole thing funny.
Yesterday John was giving Zoey kisses, and she said, "Okay, Daddy. Enough." It was a classic moment.
I am presently finding myself entralled in Barney. I am such a mom. I wish I could spenf the day shopping online and getting my toenails done. I got them done recently, but they are already looking shoddy.
I have a prayer request: I am trying to find a babysitter for Zoey for the fall. I want to do God's will, but I am having a hard time discerning what that is. I have been so blessed with our past babysitters. They have just fallen into our lap. It's not so easy this time. I am aware that I have some time to decide, but I really would like this one little part of my life to be figured out. I have enough things befuddling me right now.
Well, that 's all for now. I have wasted enough of everyone's time. Maybe now I will do a little online shopping. Or maybe I will just love on my girl. Yeah, that's what I'll do. Put in contacts, love on girl.

Yet another list

I was inspired by another friend to make another list-one that might be a neccesity to make. Yesterday was disasterous. I had a sinus infection, it was my first full day home with the girl, track camp was a flop, and to top it off, Zoey got sick when we got home. Yeah, that kind of sick. I can barely write that. The medicine is crap. However, my precious, precious husband was so good to remind me that God is so much bigger than fear and odds. So, here is my list of things that I am grateful for:

1. a amazing, Godly husband

2. being held together with strong arms when I am falling apart

3. a husband who honestly does not mind caring for a sick little girl

4. a husband who does not resent my fears

5. A God whose mercy is unfailing

6. A God whose love is shown to me through my husband

7. antibiotics

8. a husband who is devastatingly handsome

9. after 7 years of hiding embarassing things, being able to trust my husband enough to tell him absolutely everything.

10. A husband who loves every part of me-even the parts I hate with a passion.

I can only thank God for loving me so much that he truly gave me the perfect partner. He is not perfect (who is?), but he is gosh, just so great. I am blessed to experience this kind of love.
