Back on the grid

I know that a lot of time passes between my posts, but this time I have a good excuse.  I have been fasting from the internet this week in solidarity with some of my team mates to spend time in prayer for a supporting church for Jo.  Okay, it is the wimpy way out but someone needs the energy to keep this house running.  I did get plenty of time to think about Jo and how God is going to get her here.  Some great reading, quiet time and sewing got accomplished too.  On Thursday I went to the Knitting and Stitching Show at the RDS, where incidentally Bon Jovi will be playing in June 2011.  "Shot through the heart and you're to blame, darlin' you give love a bad name."  Anyway, I was one of at least a thousand people there buying fabric, yarn, books, ribbons, buttons, and mops.  Mops?  I can't really say bad things about people who buy mops at craft shows since my friend Deanna and I did the same thing last December in Huntsville.  Good times.  I bought myself a Christmas present and some other fabric before I made a bee line for home.

In other news, our friend Jocelyn was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes on Thursday.  She is doing great at the hospital while they learn all there is to know about JD and work on getting her sugar number down.  Dannon and Gabe spent the night with us and will trick-or-treat with us later this afternoon.   We would have gotten an extra hour of sleep last night because of the time change but Bailey wasn't feeling well at 4:30 AM and Gabe is an early riser.  Sick kids are kind of like babies in that their bodies don't tell them they get another hour of sleep and to take advantage of it.  I can feel a nap coming on...


  1. the trick will be not to spend twice as much time on the internet catching up on all you missed last week :) thanks for fasting with me!!!

  2. Miss you Denise! lol about our broom/mops!
    Hope Bailey feels better soon and you get a nap!
