Weekly "I AM"

Outside my window... the sun is trying to come out, but honestly, I prefer semi cloudy days. Helps keep the heat down. Heat is not my friend. My elderly neighbor across the street has peonies lining the front of his house and they are gorgeous. He has lived in that house since it was built, 60 years ago, and the peony plants are 50 years old! Isn't that amazing?! His wife died recently, so I have been trying to visit him. Can't imagine being married 60 years, living in one house with your wife, raising your family and then your best friend is gone. He has offered me full range of peony picking. :) I will partake.

I am thinking... two very different things. Public schools should not have to rely on the government for money. Those people in Washington can't take care of money and yet our kids' education depends on their ability to balance a check book. Awesome. I enrolled Chloe in Pre-K and am now finding out she might have to go to a different school. Crazy stuff, but can't afford private! haha (bend over Mrs Knox) Oh and Osama being dead is on my mind. I have opinions but you don't care so I'll save them for just Matt.

I am planning to cook... Oh I have a plan! Buffalo Chicken Dip, Mini Strawberry Mascarpone Tarts, Billie's Italian Cream Cake, Bow-tie 'Lasagna'Triple Layer Enchilada Casserole, Thursday I get to go out to eat with M1!!! We haven't eaten out alone since before C3.

I am reading.. Mitch Albom's newest book "Have A Little Faith" and David Platt's new book "Radical Together." Both are wonderful!

I am wearing... I packed the prom dress and now am wearing my wedding gown... with socks.

I am hearing... C3 yell at me because I won't pick her up. This girl is the sweetest most smiley of all our children but boy she sure is the most clingy and opinionated. If we offer her a bottle and she doesn't want it, before it hits her mouth, she gags. She just has to see it and will gag!

I am learning.. to continue to listen to God's whispers because He talks very softly but very often.

I am praying... for a ton of things.
