We're All In This Together........

I don't know what to post, but I feel like I have to. I am going through blogger's burnout, I think.
Emily has been sick. She has been throwing up and running a fever since yesterday. We had planned to go out and look at minivans today, but that window of opportunity quickly shut. I don't want to be out with a sick child.

I'm so ready to drive a bigger vehicle. My kids need to be able to stretch. I need to be a happier driver. There are few things more stressful than screaming, fighting children in the car. I have felt like running off the road many a time. Can I get a witness? I owe so many apologies to my mother for arguments in the car with my siblings. Mom, can you forgive and forget? I know she is smiling while she is reading this.

We are going to head out on Monday, hopefully, to try to sell our Grand Marquis. We are praying for God's wisdom and guidance. We want to pay off our truck so we can have only one car payment. We'll see. I will keep you all posted.

We had another great service today. God is so good, all the time.

We are planning a High School Musical 2 premiere party at our house on August 17, Friday. I'm so excited about it. We are inviting all students in elementary and middle school. We are going to serve Nachos (spilled on Sharpie Evans in the first movie), Apple Pan dowdy (see the movie and you'll know why), and maybe even Creme Brulee (see the movie). It's going to be so much fun.

Well, I need to get my kids to bed. Talk later.

I know the feeling. Last week I turned on to our road and Matthew decided to scream at the top of his lungs. I stopped the car and made him get out. He walked the half mile home. (I drove the car next to him, I didn't run off and leave him.) It worked. It has been a pleasure to ride in the car with my kids ever since.

I can remember many a day wanting to run off the road...and I did have a mini van. Does that dash your dreams?
Sorry that Emily is still sick...I was thinking that since I didn't hear from you that you were off to Jax....

I do go off the road! Been following through with the whole "Do you want me to pull the car over?" Now I know how my grandparents felt when we visited them and I am very sorry as well. Wish I could apologize to them.

Smiling?...I was laughing out loud! You're a great mom and I don't remember a thing, by the way.
Love,
Mom
