Last Saturday Sean suggested we use a gift certificate and go see a movie. I wasn’t sure at the time why, but I didn’t want to go anywhere, even if it was to see a movie, which I love to do. Then I realized why. I’m usually a homebody and last week I left the house all but one day. It was all fun goings, well mostly all. I got to go meet my grandson as he entered the world! And I had to run errands one day, which wasn’t so fun. But all that running all week meant I was ready to stay home.
That feeling continued on into Sunday but I made myself get up and go to church. I’m glad I did, they were really good services. But I was more than happy to come home afterward. We snacked when we got home and had an easy dinner of hamburgers later in the evening. I do miss seeing my parents and the rest of the family, so I’ll be eager to see them all this Sunday.
I’ll try not to be one of those people that talk about their grandkids or children for that matter, all the time, but this is a new experience for me, so here are a few pictures that Lauren sent me this week.
That is such a neat pacifier! The stuffed animal is attached so that if he spits out the paci, it doesn’t go rolling away as easily. Pretty neat! This was one of the days they were working at getting him to stay awake during the day and sleep at night. Not easy on any of them.
When I was shopping at Aldi this week, they had some infant toys for some of their specialty items this week. It was tough holding myself back from buying them for him. Christmas is really going to be fun this year!
In other news, I joined a group earlier this month that determined to read the Bible through in ninety days in chronological order. It’s been really good but tough at times. I know I was supposed to join this group and do this at this time because it’s been relatively easy to catch up when I get behind and to read the chapters most days.
It’s a really good group. The leader is praying for each of us, by name! That takes commitment and I know that has to be a key in helping me keep up. I’ve tried to do a B90 before, but it just wasn’t time for me, I guess, because I really struggled keeping up and eventually dropped out.
It’s not easy to read thirteen chapters, every single day, but it is doable. Reading it through like this makes it easier to keep things straight in my head. I didn’t get as floundered as I’ve read through the books we have so far.
Well, I think I’ve rambled enough for one day. I hope you have a great weekend. We will!
Until next time, God bless,
