i woke up this morning freaking out but i didn’t know why. i walked around the house clutching my coffee mug and felt so stressed out. after about 30 minutes i remembered why. in my dreams last night omar was called out of town unexpectedly and i had to preach a sermon for him at the last minute. ha!
i’ve been following up a lead on a van on craigslist. i came across something that seemed too good to be true. it was. trust me, you will get no money out of me if you tell me a sob story about how you have a baby girl, need to sell an almost new van for less than one quarter of its value to move into a bigger house, and then won’t let me look at the van before i send you the money. i’m no sucker.
i planned our errand outing miserably and had no food to give elisha for lunch. target to the rescue. i end up passing back cheese sticks, fruit snacks, and endless amounts of cheerios to elisha and pretending that would pass as lunch.
i learned the hard way that taking your toddler and infant into a fabric shop isn’t always the wisest move. especially when the lady helping us freaks elisha out beyond belief and we have to scurry out of there before we earn the evil eye of everyone in there.
i end the day with possibly one of the oddest library selections to date: dvds – a mighty wind, fiddler on the roof, about a boy, miami vice season 1 (i know, i know – groan away), a sherlock holmes mystery. books – gilead by marilynne robinson, boys adrift by leonard sax, and cook with jamie by jamie oliver.
