Dazed Idleness

I'm idle today.

Not doing much.

I've had a bit of a headache.

Need to be doing more. Like unloading dishwasher. Reloading dishwasher. Changing out laundry. Vacuuming popcorn kernels from the carpet. Removing rings around the toilets.

Reading and messing around on the computer instead.

And shaving off "slivers" of chocolate cake every 30 minutes or so.

Kind of down and nervous with the anticipation of the school year. What will it be like?

The only good thing I've done today is run and decide on Felix's school. Morrison Heights Baptist Child Development Center is where he'll be going. It is expensive-ish and I'm having a hard time with the whole thing.

I've been having food "issues", which is my first weird thing I go to when I feel like I'm not in control of what the heck is going on. The whole summer has been "food issue" summer.

I wish friends could come over for coffee. And a laugh. And to tell me that it's okay for me to not be in control.

Must get off my butt and do something. The house is a wreck.

Edited later:
Quinn came home to find me a weepy mess and, upon my explanation for my tears, quoted
1Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


In Greek. From memory. How sexy is that? I'm encouraged by him.

Very sexy. :)

And also, he is right. Or rather, the Bible. And you know that.

God is in control, and how much better for Him to be in control of things than us... but we try to control little things and make it seem like we can actually change stuff by doing that. Please don't worry, dear friend. I will be praying that God eases that burden for you.

Whoa...in Greek. That is kind of hot, in a Quinn sort of way.

Please forgive me...my no AC all day is fried.
I wish you where still at the pool house, for I assure you I would still be with you at this moment!

Rachel said...

Very hot. Sorry you were feeling down. I too think some days how much I'd love to be at Kim's and listening to her funny stories as she spoils my pregnant cravings with chocolate cake.

And here Justin Timberlake claimed to be the one bringing sexy back...

I had the same thought while me and the kids were walking this morning, I will miss them but God is with us no matter what. I wish I was there to watch you eat cake. I love the way you sliver a cake. You made me think of A Fish Called Wanda, Jamie Lee Curtis going crazy when someone spoke Italian or was it French. Anyway I guess yours is Greek.
