A Little About Nothin'...

We have been CRAZY busy around here. I keep wondering if we have a free weekend in sight...always something going on. My house shows it too. I am knee deep in laundry and up to my elbows in dirty dishes. I so need a housekeeper, but Kev says I would just wear myself out trying to clean for the housekeeper. He is probably right. She might turn me in on one of those TV shows if I didn't. :)

My sister called me while I was checking out at Wally World last night. The bright spot of my hour and a half visit to a place I am beginning to loathe. NEVER thought I would say it, but I really HATE going to the store these days. ESPECIALLY, when I hand over the debit card for an insane amount. My kiddos are eating me out of house and home. Not to mention bobby pins cost almost four dollars these days. WHAT?!!! Shampoo is almost SIX!!! Bread is three... Sad thing is I have to go back 'cause I forgot soap for the dishwasher. UGH!

I had to have bobby pins, cause the hair is getting long and I have put it in a ponytail a time or two. Bobby pins help it not look like "crazy lady " hair. I need a cut, but no time. So bobby pins it is... Maybe it makes me look half my age. I can dream.

Back to the phone call... I finish checking out and then stop at Subway to pick up dinner for the fam. Yes, I am on the phone. BUT, it was with my sis, who I hadn't talked to in a while. Indian man did not care, no patience what so ever as he banged on the glass. Oops! Had to tell Amber I would call her back. My sandwich was good, however they had no bacon left for Jordan's sandwich. Dinner was served at 9:00 p.m.

Did I say we were busy these days...

So Arkansas had a earthquake the other day, scary. I didn't feel it but my family who lives in two different parts of the state did. It was a crazy night, 'cause I was "storm watching" on TV, when they break in around 11:00p.m. to interrupt the storm watch, to tell us there was an earthquake. Too much worry for one night. People you better be getting your hearts in order...I can hear the trumpets a sounding.

My hubby and father-in-law made it home Tuesday. So far Papa is feeling good. Thanks so much for the prayers.

I paid bills last night. I need prayer...

Hey! Can you believe It is MARCH?

I guess I had better wrap this rambling up...

Hope you are having a GREAT week.

I think we all are feeling the crazy life these days. I am ready for our spring break.... glad it is just a day away!!

Bridget said...

It's crazy here, too, but I love it. Didn't feel the earthquake, for which I am thankful.

Glad your father in law is doing okay, will keep saying prayers for him.

Have a great week!!

Whew... that wore me out reading it! To think, you're living it!!! Sounds a whole lot like my life. My college sons will be home next week, and the craziness will hit an all time high.

Thankfully, no need for bobby pins over here. Maybe one day soon:)

Girl, I feel the same way about my kids eating me out of house and home and how everything is just so expensive these days. I need prayer for that too! LOL! And I think you're right about getting our hearts in many crazy weather things going on lately!

Did you ever wonder how "bobby" pins got their name? Was it for a "bob" hair style? Or a girl named Bobby? But that would be Bobbye or ie, wouldn't it?

Needless to say, my "wide-part" style does not require such. Anyway, hope your days are looking up soon!

Love you, daughter!
