Sweet Sunday Night Nothings

Oh the weekend....It was simply fabulous. My children woke up fever free on Friday morning and my house was cleaned by someone other than I. A fact I have given God heartfelt thanks for probably a dozen times. I have so many posts about the deliciousness of this weekend, barely started and flitting about in the wide open places of my brain. A few words dancing here, a whole couple sentences trolling about over there. But I can't seem to find the desire to sit and reign some of them in, or the discipline to add to them.

So I am going to leave them be, even with the knowledge that not captured they will likely fade away and tomorrow I will be left wondering what I ever thought I had to say.

And tonight I leave you simply with my thoughts that I have great friends and crazy, wonderful kids. And a God much bigger and wiser than I will ever be. Thank goodness.

Oh and go read this post by my friend Lisa, who I don't really know, but I wish I did. I would love to have her over for coffee and wallow in our mutual scrooginess and talk to her about how she got so wise. And I know for her, I wouldn't even have to clean my house.

And that's good people.

Oh and pssst...since you are all so sweet to be worried: I still have no new cards from the online photo company. The newest rumor is they will be arriving tomorrow.

I'm so glad the weekend went well. I'm hoping you'll get some good cards tomorrow.

Joy, did we order cards from the same place?? Hallmark? I ordered mine on Monday night, they were suppose to be shipped on Wednesday for overnight delivery. Yep, still don't have them. I have been on the phone multiple times with Hallmark and they have been really of no help what so ever. I am crossing my fingers they come tomorrow. Then I will be sending a letter to their HQ about their customer service.

Love those weekends! Sounds so great w/ your friends and the way God blessed you that you won't have to write it down to remember. ;)

You are ending my day with a smile. I can hear the happiness in your words, which is wonderful to hear. It is also a blessing to know that everyone is healthy yet again.

Anxiously awaiting the photo card update...

Wise?!? Not this girl, my friend. More like desperate. And overwhelmed. And grateful to a God who invites and even welcomes the desperate and overwhelmed!

Oh, how I would love to sit down for coffee and mutual wallowing! And you are so right about not cleaning...if only you could see the current pigsty we call home...

I count you my friend as well, even if I am now slightly worried about my Christmas cards that I ordered last week but haven't received yet...

Thanks for the link love!
