Another Post! Miraculous...

Not really but it does demonstrate that I have the computer to use.  G and a friend from school are going to a youth conference with my church so I took off work to pick them up from school to get them there.  I have a weekend to do and watch what I want when I want and read all I want without being disturbed.  WOOHOO!

I pray this weekend will give her a "mountain top" experience.  I pray she can be less distracted by her friend being there to actually engage her mind.  I pray it is a conference that affirms the Bible and doesn't shove some progressive leftist stuff in there.  Our denomination hasn't been known for traditional Biblical stances in the past.  Slowly, they are coming back to the Book.  So with that, G is going and bringing a friend.

She just doesn't feel comfortable in our church's youth group yet.  I am not inclined to attend my old home church where her friends go and want her to be in our youth group.  That being said, I want this weekend for her to realize God calls us into a community of believers to be participants not consumers.

On another note, my dad is cleaning out my mom's closet.  I am the beneficiary of those items.  Mom and I have always been able (mostly) to wear each other's outfits and shoes.  This is both morbid and nice.  I needed some new jeans and really didn't want to spend the money to get any.  My mom can no longer fiddle with buckles and buttons so her clothing needs have dramatically changed.  He is downsizing now so it won't be an issue later.  Most of her stuff will be going to a women's shelter in town.  And honestly I would rather get the clothes now rather than when the inevitable happens.  My dad is not a person with emotional ties to things but I am.

Anyhoo, that is the update for the week.  Have a better one and be blessed.

February 20, 2017

Record for remembrance:



So today the temperature reached almost 80.  G was out of school for President's day and I took off work to take her to the zoo.  The buttercups are from my yard.  Anyway, we are in flip flops, shorts and t-shirts in the middle of winter.  This is lovely but not the norm and not totally surprising.  Sometimes we have winter winter and sometimes we have winter summer.  Hopefully we won't have winter until well after next week.

2017 Happenings


Pictures out of order, 1st a Valentine made by my mom with the sitter's help for G.  Kept my mom busy.  This is a keepsake.  My mom needs a busy blanket for adults.

The 2nd is from our annual work conference, me with a real live former astronaut, Borneo (call name) who orbited the earth for 17 days between the challenger and the other explosion.

The conference was good at least day 1.  Day 2 not so much.  The evenings events were basically a drunk fest of of which I did not attend.

G's school is out this week.  She's staying the days with my parents.  Though she has been accepted in the school I want for next year, I still don't know if I can afford it.  I am looking at other options.  I just know she can't go back where she is.  She has significant academic gaps because they teach no history, no civics, no social studies, no real economics, etc.

I have been extremely pleased with President Trump and very disappointed in the traitorous deep state.  The left is losing and fighting a war against Americans and the American ideal.

So much for the 2017 happenings so far...
