Simple Woman

For today... November 30, 2008

Outside my window... the sun is shining and the wind is blowing like madness. It was very cold when i left for church this morning.

I am thinking... only 2 weeks left - this final stretch is killing me.

I am thankful for... my relationship with Jesus Christ. Even though at times it feels chaotic and crazy i am falling more in love with Him everyday. I don't want it to end.

From the kitchen... There are many delicious sweet treats - cookies, milk duds, Andees Mints, M&M's, and turtles. Enough to gain some weight over the Holidays.

I am wearing... actually - i was trying to take a nap, but my tummy was hurting so i decided i would blog since i couldn't sleep. With that said, i am wearing my "jammies".

I am going... to church in about 3 hours. One week until The Mystery of the Manger Christmas Musical. It's also 5th Sunday Sing and mom scheduled the family to sing - I'll have to sneak in and sneak right back out to be with MP3.

I am reading... the same thing as last week. School kind of messes up with your reading huh? I did get a little more "fun" reading done over the break. Nothing forced!

I am hoping... that when i sit down to work on this paper tonight it'll all just start flowing. I don't know that i've ever had this much trouble writing a paper. What is my deal?

I am creating... christmas gift list for friends and family, a book shelf for my bedroom, some decorations for the Holidays.

I am hearing... it's always really quite when i do these post - i feel like my answer is always the same. Simply the hum of my computer and the wind blowing outside. Crazy crazy wind. Reminds me of that Babes in Toyland movie - have you seen that? It was one of my favorites growing up.

Around the house... Casie is napping, Brandon has gone to change a flat tire on his car, not sure what mom and dad are doing - maybe napping also? And all the Christmas decorations are finally up and done with. Mom met her goal of getting them up in time to enjoy this year.

One of my favorite things... seeing someone genuinely worshipping the Lord. I love an honest pure heart. It has this domino affect that pushes and challenges others to evaluate themselves.

A few plans for the rest of the week... are you ready for this?
Monday - research paper due, Babysit, Casting Crowns/Natalie Grant/Avalon/etc Christmas Concert
Tuesday - Christian Missions Project and Presentation Due, Decorating for MP3 with Cari
Wednesday - Calender project due for Youth Ministry, babysit, Adult Choir
Thursday - a regular school day, MP3 Mystery of the Manger rehearsal
Friday - school, babysit, and a FREE night to get a jump start on studying for Finals, oh and babysit a little more (i almost forgot)
Saturday - MP3 Dress Rehearsal
Sunday - church and MP3 Presents The Mystery of The Manger Christmas Musical
Then it's Finals week and school will be over for a whole MONTH!

Here is a picture thought i am sharing with you...

China had to be house trained when we first got her. She was barely 3 months old. Poor thing got shut off in the kitchen. She would often sit there with her nose through the holes peeking at all the fun that was going on the living room without her. Now isn't that cute?

I'm a tad bit jealous! I wanted to go see the Casting Crowns! I'll just have to settle for the CD that I've asked for as a Christmas gift. I hope you have a wonderful time. Love Ya!
