Gurl’s I am on pins and needles today. I will be hosting a big business presentation tonight in a large town that is 2 hours away. I have never even hosted a small presentation much less a large one. 😱 You all hear me preach about setting out of your comfort zone and I am showing you an example. Am I petrified??? Heck yes! Am I still going to do it??? Heck yes! I am going to count it as a win if I do not pass out or hurl. Lol! I am setting the bar pretty low.
Last Friday night I was writing on the blog and also doing a little surfing on Facebook. I would write a little and then surf a little. A lady that I am friends with posted a question that said, “What has happened to Jean Claude Van Damme?” That caught my attention and I started reading some of the responses. Which got me to thinking about the Volvo commercial where he did the famous splits.
A couple of Sundays ago my preacher was talking about chapter 5 in Mark. Joe and I discussed the lesson after the church service was over because he just couldn’t get over the fact that a herd of pigs walked down a steep bank and into a lake where they were drowned. When I sat down Saturday morning to do my daily devotional from my Write The Word journal it told me to turn to Matthew 5:1-10. I started writing down the words and realized that I was writing all about the story of Legion again. I took that as a sign that I needed to do my blog post about this story since it had come to me twice.
The weekend is here and I can’t wait to see what it will bring. I think that I am going to get to babysit a little bit Saturday night and that is always fun and scary at the same time. Lol! I managed to raise three perfectly good human beings but I swear that I can’t remember how. Lol! Emersyn is a breeze to watch. She can amuse herself with coloring, play-doh, or playing with her Barbie house. Little man is going to be the concern. He has never stayed with me much since he has been born and I worry about him having a fit while Joseph and Kayla go out on a date night.
Joe and I went out to eat last night for his birthday and our son and his family joined us. I took my laptop and sat worked on the blog while he went to his board meeting before we went out to eat. Little Miss Emersyn was mostly concerned about Pa getting some birthday cake for his birthday. I am not sure if she was concerned for “him” or if she was concerned that “she” might not get any. Lol! Little Beckham is just 7 months old so he is not able to eat real food yet but he did get to at least eat a little bit of baked potato.
BTW, today is Joe’s birthday!!! Say a small prayer for me since it is “his” day. He actually said he didn’t want anything for his birthday and even though I did some snooping on his computer I couldn’t find anything that he was looking at. He just bought a brand new set of golf clubs so I guess that counts as his present.
Remember when Joe remarked in this post about my hair looking like my dog’s hair? Lucy was a stray that we found almost two years ago. My sister-in-law saw this mud encrusted little dog walking down the railroad tracks behind my house. We went outside and whistled for she but it took off when it saw us. The next morning when I looked outside the little thing was on my back porch eating out of my cat’s bowl. I snuck around the other door and tried to see if I could trap her inside my fence but she must have heard me coming because she was gone by the time I opened the gate. The next time I saw the poor little thing
How many of you have seen celebrities opening up one of these FabFitFun boxes and wondered if they were worth the 49.99? I did and as usual, I let my curiosity get the better of me. Lol! This is a subscription service but it is on a quarterly basis, and not a monthly basis like most subscription services I have joined before.
For those of you who think that I never have to worry about how I am dressed, think again! My husband thinks he knows EVERYTHING when it comes to fashion. (Insert tongue in cheek) We were sitting around last Saturday evening and I said that I was going to take a shower and get cleaned up. I hadn’t been feeling the best earlier in the day and I was just starting to get dressed. I took a shower, put on makeup, and then I put on some comfortable clothing. Mind you, I had a NEW pair of trendy frayed hemmed jeans on, a super comfortable and soft cowl-necked sweater, and a long duster so I looked fine since all I planned on doing was fixing a salad and writing the blog for today.
Pressures, they seem to be everywhere. There is not a single day that goes by that some amount of pressure is applied to you. Maybe it is the pressure of being on time to work and making sure that the alarm is set correctly. That one is easy for me since we now have an Echo Dot beside the bed. We simply tell “Alexa” to set the alarm for the time we need up for the next morning. But, other pressures can’t be fixed as easily.
