Cooking my own dinner. Because, let's face it. I'm a good cook and I like to eat my own food even if my friend's food is rockin' awesome and greatly appreciated! (Thanks Courtney!)
Playing and dancing with my kids. Don't worry, I wasn't doing the limbo or anything... just dancing around a little bit and exercising my arms... to 80's music on channel 416. Then we did a couple of puzzles while singing to songs like "Walk Like an Egyptian" and "Land of Confusion".
Taking out the compost. It was gettin' stinky!
Not having to depend upon everyone else for help. I'm not good at this at all!
Other things that have blessed me this week...
Funny kids. Last night we were watching "American Idol" auditions and during a paticularly bad performance, He-Man said that he was going to put his bottom in the air and shoot things at this girl to make her stop. My abdomen ached from the laughter.
Being interviewed for an article in the Tennessean about Mommy Blogging. I was able to share some things that mean a lot to me and I'm excited to see the outcome of the story.
Amazing friends! I had a pal bringing me food. A friend bringing over Pick up Sticks and Guess Who? and watched a crazy terrible movie with me while she braided my hair. Girls who brought their kiddos to Barnes and Noble to help celebrate Donut's birthday since we had to cancel the real party because of my "condition". :( Tons of friends who have offered to help out in one way or another.
My in laws have really stepped up to the plate to help out this week as well.
An awesome husband who works all night, all day, and then still comes home and does laundry, dishes, food, etc.
Sweet kids who have learned to be servants by offering to help me out and even rubbing my legs with lotion.
My eye injury (scratched cornea from a little boy's sleep flailing) could have been a TON worse! I was so glad when I felt almost totally better the very next day.
Good tv. New episodes of my favorite shows couldn't have come at a better time!
I've been doing a daily Bible reading and I was especially blessed by these verses. I kept reading them over and over.... I don't think I've ever done that!
13 Blessed is the one who finds wisdom and the one who obtains understanding.
14 The profit gained from wisdom is greater than the profit gained from silver. Its yield is better than fine gold.
15 Wisdom is more precious than jewels, and all your desires cannot equal it.
16 Long life is in wisdom's right hand. In wisdom's left hand are riches and honor.
