I am off to Farmville with my friend, Lori. Longwood Univ is in Farmville. Shawn is attending LU. We will see him, but only for dinner tonight and dinner tomorrow night. He's prez of the fishing club (or vice prez??) and they have a tournament tomorrow. Lori and I are going to spend the day shopping. TONS of antique stores and furniture stores in Farmville. We're heading down today around noon, with a stop for Chick-fil-a. That's my Friday. Enjoy yours!

Thanks for the reminder that you are are still writing and studying on Fridays. I was wondering. I will continue to pray.

After work (done Fridays at 1:30-yeah!), I need to:
get all the paper in my backseat to a paper drive
transport my teenager to a babysitting job and teen game night at the library (temp dropped from low 60's to the low 30's with a hefty wind--no fun for walking)
pay a few bills
go to a baked potato dinner and the movie "Faith like Potatoes" with our ladies from church
hopefully spend a little time with my hubby
also, I would love to prepare to hang the new blinds and a picture I bought recently--planned for tomorrow


Go, girl, go. :0)

Thank God for providing for our every need...found out my husband will be home from Africa early!
Happy Weekend.


Haven't read your blog in awhile. It is a snowy day, my kids are napping, my husband is out of town,and I am enjoying coffee. By friday I am ready for some down time after working, homeschooling, and all the other mom duties. Heard you are staying in AZ another year. Are you homeschooling too? Saw that you are running..Good for you. I need to be inspired again to workout. All the years have caught up to me and now I am unmotivated. Went to Mary P with the Janna crowd and thought of you--you would have been there. Take care.
