So how do you all make/find time to write blogs? especially funny and intelligent ones... the few times I think of funny and/or intelligent things I am either a. almost asleep and too lazy to get up and write it down (I lost a whole song that way - and I'm pretty sure it was good too- I just can't remember ;p )or b. at work and start giggling to myself to which people want to know what is so funny and I reply nothing to which I get weird looks but I learned that it is best to keep these things to myself - they already think I'm crazy for giving my ficus tree a bath - #1 because I have a ficus tree to begin with and #2 because I gave it a bath - and explaining why only made them think I was even more delusional - I thought it made perfectly good sense though... :o)

anyway it might help if my laptop worked but I need a new power cord and it cast $70.00 before shipping and handling so I am not overly joyous to buy another one. one of these days though...

Maybe it is just because I am neither funny or intelligent hmm.. this could be .... ;o)

I think I fixed it !

OK, so more than one person has told me that they can't leave comments but I think I have fixed it now :o)

Today at work we had a fire safety meeting it was actually sort of interesting being that they really didn't tell me anything that I didn't already know but it was also helpful in the aspect that I didn't really know how everything was placed at the restaurant.

It is beautiful outside today which makes me so excited !!!

Mike (my health care client) is on vacation right now so I actually have some evenings free until he gets back so it is very nice to be able to go out and do things, tonight I am going to a car show with Jeff, Becky and Sami - I'm not sure if anyone else is going or not.

A morning with Sami

Lol, ok so I am watching my niece (Sami) today and she has kept me entertained for the two hours she has been here so far...

She helped me make breakfast, was very fascinated by Mike's (my home health care client) wheel chair... and absolutely loves the cat who is, surprisingly and thankfully ,being nice to her, at this exact moment right now she is yelling meow, meow, meow, come here, come right here... trying to get it to eat its food and water - I think this stemmed from the conversation at breakfast where she wanted the "meow" to eat her food and I said that the cat had its own food by the microwave which she duly discovered a few minutes ago...

She also saw some wild turkeys and was 'gobble-gobbling' them and quite frequently runs to the double doors on the deck to watch the deer eating hay...

she also learned how to play the slot machine downstairs and made me wish that it was real as she won three out of four times :o)

Now she is back to her movie, she found (gasp) that Mike had Monsters Inc. (her favorite movie) and he told her she could watch it if she wanted after he left for work - I told him that should make her very happy so after he left and I popped it in she squeals and says "I'm happy now"....

now she keeps changing the channel or turning the volume down and will go 'stop it, no, why, make it stop' :o)

and she just dumped all the cat food out of the dish and onto the floor for the 'meow' that she calls 'mity' (long i) it's name is mickey and now she is telling it to 'go outside' lol :D

I was going to add some pictures but the cord I thought belonged to my camera must not because it doesn't work so maybe I will add some pictures later...

My First Day of Jr. Worship

So Sunday was my first day of teaching Jr. worship... it was rather crazy ...I'm not sure I want to do it anymore.

The oldest is nine (I think) and the youngest is three... they don't get along- I don't want to sit by so and so, some don't want to listen to lessons and are a distraction to others- this is boring can I go play, that one doesn't want to sing songs (because they don't want to sing the song that someone else picks 'cause they don't like it), one doesn't like that game even though everyone else agreed on it - so sits there and sulks, another doesn't like the craft and starts complaining... basically they just want to run around destroying things and making noise (the boys) or watch a movie (the girls) yes, all this I learned in one day because I tried everything, and one of the older two is just plain disrespectful... and then I learn from the girl who helps out that it isn't me, "this is normal behavior for them"... I very much miss the kids in Bemidji right now :o)

I don't think sending them upstairs is really an option as some adults find them "distracting" and have let us know they don't "appreciate" the kids being up there during the sermon and I don't want to cause any dissension so I am rather at a loss on what to do...

Any suggestions ? Perhaps my attitude is wrong but I volunteered my time to teach a class, not babysit, and quite frankly I don't want to be missing sermons to watch the kids run around and fight, but as I said, I don't want to cause problems so I am not sure how to broach the subject because if I say I don't want to do it anymore I know I will be asked why and I don't really know how to answer other than to state the reasons listed above and I'm not sure that will be received well...

lol ok I am done venting now, any advise or wisdom would be appreciated :D

My first day here

Ok, I finally did it, I am now here, gracing you all with my presence... I really do not have a whole lot to say at this particular moment, while my new blog opens up new ground by brain is shutting down faster so I shall have to wait until another time when my nurons and electrons are working compatibaly together again...


...sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
is just a grain of sand
and what you've been up there searching for forever
is in your hands
when you figure out love is all that matters after all
it sure makes everything else seem so small...
