..i love Saturdays..

Even though I did not get enough sleep last night.. Dd had a Sleep Over, (let me just say there is no actual sleep to be¬†had at a ‘sleepover’). I am having a great morning. Even Ds being mouthy and causing trouble with his sister, still a great morning, even BIL being a DICK, still a great morning, even my throbbing toe -there for no run, still a great morning.

No I have not gotten into the funny juice, nor have I enhanced my coffee in anyway. I am simply enjoying this cold blustery day, cleaning my house and for a reason God himself only knows feeling very happy!

I have systematically organized all of my kitchen cupboards, they are straightened, purged, and very organized, my laundry is going and all kids are fed, watered and happily doing what they do. I know what I am making for supper, and I am dressed in comfy yoga pants and a sweater. It’s awesome.

Well I better get to it, I have to pick up Ds soon, he is at a football fundraiser. Then I must go to work, that *may* put a slight damper on my day, we’ll see I guess.

Happy Saturday ūüôā

..aches..

Ouchy, ouchy everything hurts today. My head, my stomach and my foot. I really wish I could crawl into bed and do nothing. Not read. Just lay there. Wow, what an ambitious day!

Well, I have cleaned my house, both floors, worked the laundry, had coffee with a friend and even went to Mass. I suspect that’s more than a lot of people do in a day and I did it all before lunch time.

No, I am not harping on my self at all, just complaining a little bit.

Okay rant over. I’m not really in a complaining mood I guess.

So today is YG, possible catechism and I think Dh has the kids. I haven’t read the text we are supposed to cover. I am struggling so much to get into it. It’s seems so abstract, that it can be very hard to follow. You know what I wish we could be reading with the kids. The Gospels, or select books from the bible. Holy cow, they think what they are reading is practical, pick up Mathews Gospel, it’s like a bloody manual for life!! Seriously¬†of¬† the books of wisdom, Sirach. Practical words of wisdom, which a essential in our daily lives. But meh, that’s just my opinion and really who am I?

Shoot my foots asleep.

Okay, another random thing, cause I can tell today’s post is going to be very random, about very random stuff..

I just started another book yesterday, however this one is an Audio book. I like listening to stories while I work. It’s helps my get stuff done with out realizing it’s been 6 hours since I spoke to another person. No that came out wrong, I don’t care that it’s been six hour since I last talked to someone but sometimes it’s just a little too quiet and I get distracted. The narrator keeps me on task. So anyway this book, is amazing so far. It’s called The Help. I was going to give synopsis, but then I got lazy. It’s a fantastic book, I am about 6 hours in a last night I was struggling not to neglect my children in order to continue to listen.. LOL. Today I have such a darn headache that it’s losing the appeal, ear-buds and headaches are NOT a good mix. Anyway when I was searching for the synopsis, I found they are adapting this book to the big screen. That’s a general hit or miss, sometimes they do a good job, most times not. There is a nice cast, so I will hope for the best. I think I will recommend it too, it’s one of those books that makes you think, hard mind you about something that in no way shape or for has any impact on your life. No, I should say, this is a subject that is recent as far as history and seems plain unbelievable that people actually treated other people so cruelly. The book is about segregation in southern Mississippi during the sixty’s. Not a subject I am familiar with, living a d having grown up in rural Canada. It makes me a little sick and takes my breath away though at moments the horrific things people do to one an other…

Well, I think my Tylenol is finally working, I better go. I am supposed to be meeting my boss.

..quietly 17..

I have this song stuck in my head. It’s super fitting,¬†in¬†a¬†way but¬†on the other hand¬†I am not miserable. At all. ¬†In fact even though it’s Tuesday I am surprisingly at peace with everything. I am spending the day quietly reflecting upon my journey, and what lies ahead. I am happy to be here.

I am moved with the realization that the drama is done with, I am filled with Joy because it is a very special day for my favorite priest, 17 years of ministry, of yes to His vocation. What an honor. I think back to where I was 17 years ago, it was that same year that I got into trouble, 17 years ago is when my life changed. It’s amazing to remember.

I will offer all my prayers for the continued faith journey of our parish priest. I truly hope for his ultimate good. He saved my life, it was he that counseled and helped me to carry my cross. He taught me to trust Jesus and lay all my cares at the foot of His cross. I will never forget his faithful way that led me out of the darkness.

I better get to work, I downloaded a book to listen to while I was around here. Something to fill a little bit of the silence. It’s called- The Help. I am looking forward to listening to it. I also might change in my crutches today and try putting pressure back on my foot. Wish me Luck.
