Friday, January 27, 2006 last!

I'm always glad when Friday comes, but it seems even more welcome when our week has been busy. This week falls into that category. Busy with a capital "B". Among the many things I had to do this week was put together a costume for Sarah for Fairy Tale Day today. I borrowed a princess dress from a friend, but when we went over to get it, she showed Sarah the Princess Leia (Star Wars) costume they had. It took a lot of convincing for her to believe that Leia wasn't a fairy tale character. She went today as Rapunzel and looked really cute! I've decided there are a lot of things I'm good at, but costumes isn't one of them. I don't know why I dread that so much, but I do. I was putting the finishing touches on Rapunzel's hair and princess crown at 10:30 last night, and I've only known about this for 2 weeks! It's over though and it was a fun day for Rapunzel, Pinocchio, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, and many more beloved characters. Oh yeah...her teacher looked GREAT dressed as Snow White!

Other news...We're still waiting on John's paycheck, or at least on the big one. He's gotten paid for some other stuff so we're definitely breathing a little easier. God has showed up for us in some big ways this week in regard to financial matters. Yay, God!!! John had an informal interview with a guy this week about a pretty consistent writing gig. It looks somewhat promising at this point, and we'd both love the consistency. So, we're praying there might be something to it.

Tonight I ran to Vitamin Cottage (a natural grocery store here) to pick up a few things, and the cashier was cracking jokes as he rung me up. He told me a funny one about holy water. Seems a priest told him once how to make his own holy water. Wanna know how? just boil the hell out of it. I laughed pretty hard. Hope you are too!

Hi Mer... thanks for the laugh. Hope that writing job materializes.
Wish there were a place for John to teach consistently. Adjunct faculty at a Christian college. His sermon was great... though can't picture him in a collar.
