I really dislike the "whatever" feeling that has taken me over the past two days. I'm not a whatever kind of person. I'm generally the happy go lucky type. Tomorrow is a new day and I am definitely looking forward to that!

Even in this mood the kids still crack me up. Orion said to me, "Hey mom, can I please have a drum set and three back up dancers so we can make some money to go on a cruise? Please?" That boy is going to be a business man when he grows up. Every few days he has a new idea of a business he wants to start. "Happy Burgers" "Lemonade Stand" "Make bullets and sell them at a garage sale" (I have no idea where that one came from!) "Learn a talent and go to America's got talent" "Make a stand and collect $1 from everyone who comes to Danica's birthday party" Where does this boy come up with these things? 

I'm so glad that is how he thinks though. Rarely do I hear "Hey mom will you buy me this". We get the request for such and such for his birthday or Christmas but aside from that he seems to realize you have to work to get what you want. That makes me so proud and at the same time sad. I know it shouldn't be sad but I have a desire in me to spoil my children and it sucks that I can't stretch the mighty dollar further sometimes and buy them everything their little heads dream up.

I'm beginning to read the Purpose Driven Life again. I read it years ago all in one sitting and it's really more of a book to sit and ponder than rush through. I'm going to enjoy it this time and really contemplate it...really! Of course, I don't think this is the book with all the answers (I have three of those Books next to me) but I really enjoy another's Biblical perspective on how to live life well and to the fullest. That's what it's all about right? You only get one of these go rounds down here on earth, might as well make it absolutely grand, eh?

I can't remember anything these days! It's pretty bad when you need to set an alarm in your phone to remind you to call a friend. What's wrong with me? Now I know good and well back in the old days before computers and all the fancy smancy gadgets that women had friends and families that they remembered to keep up with from time to time.  Not me. I could talk to someone everyday then all the sudden two...or six months has passed and we haven't spoken a word. It's not that I don't think about people. I think about friends and family A LOT. And it's not that time just fly's by because time has a pretty, steady, slow pace with me. (And I like that, thank You God and you can keep that up as long as You would like.) So in other words I have no excuse for my actions....DANG! Well, I do stay pretty busy so I guess that's an excuse. Four kids, a husband, house, chickens, pigs and various other creatures do take some time I suppose....and all of that me time in between. (accompanied by a roll of the eyes and a sarcastic tone, lol)

Well, I've been blessed with some energy and determination as of late. I've got a couple meals cooked up and frozen and started, oh I don't know, 3 other businesses. Well, not really paying businesses at this point but some great ideas that are taking up way to much of my time! That's always nice!

Off to bed, gonna try this whole day thing again tomorrow....and hopefully end it before 1am.
