Monday Morning Thoughts

Hi, everyone! How did it get to be Monday again SO stinking fast? Where does the time go? I definitely think that as you get older the days go by so much more quickly and I’m not quite sure how I feel about that. Anyway…here are some thoughts from the past week and weekend…

  • Last Tuesday and Wednesday we had our house completely torn apart. Stuart and his team from Carpet One came in and ripped out every single bit of flooring in my house and installed new hardwood and carpet. It was a big, dusty, messy job but now the house looks amazing and I feel like we are finally getting settled in after living here for six months. I’ll post some pictures later. Thanks, Stuart!
  • Reagan’s “big boy bunk-bed” was delivered on Friday. It has canopies, curtains, peep holes, a chalk board and cool little shelves and pockets everywhere for his collection of two year old “stuff”. He thinks he is the bomb right now…he’s right. (the bed came from Baby Swank – the coolest kids furniture store EVER!)
  • Don has officially become a Sodexho employee. They are the contract company that came in and took over his department at the hospital. He is really excited about this company and about the opportunity to be in charge of a new department and some exciting new things they are implementing. He was the first person they offered a management position to and I’m so proud of him! This is an answer to our prayers and I know it is going to be an exciting new season for him.
  • Drum roll please……we decided on a name for the girl! Rylee Lyric – destined to be the most spoiled, high maintenance girl ever. (at least thats what Christie says…) Let me know what you think about the name – but only if you like it 🙂
  • Glory Academy’s Celebration Dance Company ministered in our service yesterday and they were amazing! I’m so proud of our girls – and so thrilled that we have the opportunity to not only offer this community excellent technical dance training, but training in what it really means to use your gifts for the glory of God – you girls are amazing!
  • This week we are finishing up all the preparation for our Easter service this Sunday. This is the last Sunday in our Catalyst series and I am really excited about what this means for our church. If we can truly grasp what God is trying to say to us through this, we can change this city. Let’s do this!
  • Some exciting things coming for me and my family….I can see God’s hand all over us and I am honored by what He is doing.
  • Was it just me, or did it seem like the winner of the HGTV dream home last night could have been a little more excited about winning a multi-million dollar home in the Florida Keys AND a new car? Wow – if she doesn’t want the prize, I would be happy to take it off her hands for her. Good grief!
  • This is a picture of Reagan and his friend, Isabella, from their creative movement class this morning. Mrs. Melanie dressed them up as prince and princess and I just had to grab the IPhone and take get a shot of their cuteness! I’m not quite sure why a red puffy vest with snow flake on the side is considered a “prince” costume, other than it was probably the only thing in the GAFA closet that came close to making sense.

  • That’s all for now – I’ll post pics of the house later this week – tonight hopefully. BTW – if anyone wants to come help Don finish painting the inside – especially the nursery, let me know! Since I’m prego, I can’t help with that chore! (I’m really broken up about that, too)
