Winding down a long day

So... today Chloe and I went to the library to help them set up their new Wii! It was fun, I love watching older people getting a kick out of new technology! Reminds me of the time Grandma and Aunt Linda came over and battled each other in bowling for a good hour, it was sooooo much fun!!

So... I'm really excited that they're involving ME in this new Wii program! I've got so many good ideas about it, I am really excited for it! The kids will just love it... I know a few who are excited allready! I like having something to do close to home, I just have to make sure I'm not getting myself in too deep! Right now I'm doing pretty good at balancing my time... (as i look behind me at the baskets of laundry piled up that need to be folded) haha at least it is clean right!

Chloe is sick. It breaks my heart for her to be sick, and knowing that there is just about nothing I can do to fix it immediately. I love how she wants to cuddle so much, but I just hate the reason for it! I am thinking she may need to go see the doctor in the morning, but I gave her some motrin and I have the humidifier going and we'll see what her temp is in the morning. It was 99 tonight under the arm, which I think means its really 100, which is just terrible to think of so we'll say 99... and pray. I'm sure she'll be fine but you guys know me, I freak out about everything! She was so good and calm all day at the library though, I was amazed! I thought she'd want to leave much sooner! What a cooperative little angel!

A new start

So.... why did I decide to start a blog? Well... a lot of reasons.... the first being that I love to read other mom's blogs, and every time I opened my browser (mozilla for me) I had like 5 different blogs that popped up in different tabs, and it took longer than normal to load, and was beginning to annoy my husband... So, I decided to get a 'blogger' account so I could track all the blogs I enjoy to read, and by golly you automatically get a blog when you do that. But I didn't have to update it, really... but I decided it might be a good thing. An outlet, a place for me, and a place for family that lives far away to keep updated on our lives, I guess. So what can you expect to read here? All kinds of things probably... my favorite recipes, what we did on any given day, new pictures of Chloe, and.... who knows what else! It's a mystery... I guess we'll see!

For today I'll leave you with one of my favorite verses, Philippians 4:6-7 in the message bible....

"Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."

My favorite part, which most of you know if you've been to my house in the last few months, is "Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers". It's written HUGE in dry erase marker on my living room wall! And no, dry erase marker doesn't wipe off the living room walls. My bad. I really thought it would. And there’s a little household tip- I use dry erase markers do write on EVERYTHING because it comes off so many things, my grocery list is written on the fridge, Reminders on the bathroom mirrors/counters/bathtub walls, and all other sorts of things.... Well, more tomorrow... or later today... I don't know how often I'll update this thing, I guess we'll see!
