I'd rather not think!
I greet today with a true
mix of emotions.
Last week was busy and fun
in many ways with the beginning
of the Longwood Internship for
Mikey...but ended with a bit
of a thud as Mikey did not get
his driver's license in his
Being a country boy has its
drawbacks. The parallel parking
got him. Even though he and Warren
had been in Lancaster parking in
many situations, the nerves arose.
He is taking it pretty hard.
Everyone must go through
I have...you have.
They truly do make us stronger.
It just hurts like crazy in the
meantime...you know what I mean.
On the upside of this week,
dear friends from church wanted
to do a special birthday dinner
for Chelsea last night.
She will turn fourteen on Monday.
We were so blessed by Sue and Jon's
thoughtfulness. Especially since
they will have a family gathering
to celebrate their own family birthdays
today. Thank you, sweet friends.
After the meal our family, including
the grandmas, went into Willow Street
to see fireworks. We got a great place
in by the McDonalds and enjoyed the show.
So..if I had to think...Here is what
I would be thinking:
1. What is up with Sarah Palin?
2. The grass was really wet this morning
when I took the mail out.
3. I'm kind of glad for the excuse to keep
driving Mikey to work.
Sorry...I would think that
if I were thinking.
4. I should be cleaning so we can not be
ashamed to have friends over tomorrow.
5. It will be nice to have Warren at home
three days in a row.
6. My baby is almost 14!!!!!
7. There are yard sales all around me...
8. Chelsea has unloaded the dishwasher.
I should go load it again.
9. With all of the technology we have at
our disposal, why isn't there a laundry robot?
10. Georgia suggested Jonathan should be a model
for men's big and tall clothing. He's at least
6'5". Hmmm....in his
new duds he does look pretty cute.
If I were thinking...I'd probably be thinking stuff
like this. But, alas, I am just too tired to think.
Probably a good thing!
Have a Happy Fourth of July.
Remember our freedom is not guaranteed!
Men and women give their lives daily to maintain
it and provide the peace we enjoy.
Today we celebrate the Independence gained a couple
of hundred years ago. I hope we will appreciate and
cherish that freedom!!
