A Man, A Plan, A Canal, Panama

Okay, so my blog doesn’t really have anything to do with that palindrome…I just love it. Read it backwards and it’s the same thing…hence, “palindrome”. I wonder why they couldn’t come up with another word for palindrome that IS a palindrome?
So my daughter Katie is 9. She’s growing up really fast. Yesterday she came up to me after her shower and said, “Mom…I’ve got hair….THERE”. I was thinking to myself, “WHERE?” Then she lifted up her arm to reveal three of the blackest hairs you have ever seen on a 9 year old’s armpit. (Can I say PHEW!?!) I managed to keep a straight face and told her I’d buy her an electric razor for that in the next week or so since she’s going to camp and I don’t want her to be embarrassed. She had the most pitiful look on her face until she caught sight of mine and we just could NOT keep it together any longer and we both burst out laughing.
I’m glad she’s growing up. She’s a fine young lady with good manners, polite conversation, a loving demeanor…and oh yeah, three little black hairs under her arm until mom buys her an electric razor!

Tag Nab It!

Okay, so I could ignore Kelli Crowe’s tag (because how is she going to PROVE I read her blog religiously every day???), but when Rachel posts HER tag in answer to KELLI’s tag and then she has the gumption to tag me at the end?!?!?! Well, I can’t exactly ignore that now, can I???
1. How old are you? 37 2. How many kids do you have if any? 2 girls, 1 boy , and 1 husband
3. Are you married, single, divorced, widow? Oh so happily married
4. What is your occupation? Mom=doctor, therapist, counselor, coach, teacher
5. What are your passions? My Lord Jesus Christ, my husband, my kids, my church…in that order.
6. Are you a dreamer or a dream seeker? Dream Seeker…I was saying Just do it waaay before Nike was!
7. Are you happy with the way you life has turned out? Never in a million years did I think my life was going to be this good – it’s much, much better than I ever expected or even dared to hope for.
8. Are you a scrapper and if so how many hours a week do you scrap? If I say no, it’s a lie…’cause I do love scrapping, but I haven’t spent much time on it in the last 3 years…the photos are PILING up!
9. What do you want to do before you die? live (this is totally kelli’s answer, but it’s the best one I’ve ever seen, so I’m leaving it.)(ditto, Rachel)
10. What is your favorite food? Anything from La Carretta’s (Mexican, for sure, dude.)

13. What is the happiest day of your life thus far? The day I met Jesus and all my sins were forgiven…no joke, I worried about that a LOT!
14. Are you a neat freak? Or a dirty house cleaner? How anyone can be a neat freak and have normal well-adjusted kids is beyond me…I LOVE LOVE LOVE things to be neat, but I’ve realized over the last 9 years that if it’s just CLEAN under all the crappe, we’re good to go.
Okay…that’s done.
I tag SUZY!

Ooh…and he’s single too!

This is my husband’s best friend, David. He’s 33, physically fit, mentally sharp, and funnier than almost anyone I know, and he has the most incredible singing voice. Oh, and he really needs a wife. No, there’s nothing wrong with him. He just hasn’t found the “right one”. He’s looking….oh he’s looking, for sure.

Did I mention he really wants a wife?

The good thing is that he knows that.

The bad thing is he’s got a list!

He’s been single long enough to have developed quite a list of qualities that he would like in a wife. (Fortunately, he’s been around me a little too long, so some of those have come back down to reality!) They are scriptural as far as I know….but of course, he might not be telling me everything. I did say he’s my husband’s best friend, not mine!

He wants to get married and have kids….he’d like to find someone who wants the same. Unfortunately, it seems that most women his age are either too career minded or too messed up. My husband and I have been praying for him for the last 5 years…we thought last year that he had met “the one”…it didn’t work out for whatever reason. Maybe he’s been single too long.

Maybe he’ll never get married. I don’t know.

My hubby insists that I cannot post an ad for him, so be forewarned that’s not what I’m doing here….just venting my frustration that someone as wonderful as him is not married yet. Well…maybe someday soon, if it’s the Lord’s will, he’ll find his girl and sweep her off her feet like my husband swept me off mine.

You can always hope, anyway….
