Black Cats & Broken Mirrors
Scary, scary...Friday the 13th. I am a very superstitious person, so days like today I think all types of weird stuff. Will I ever grow up? Who knows. But tonight I am dreaming of snuggling up on the couch with the lights low and a scary movie on the TV.
Today I had plans to go to the gym then to Target. Then my mom stopped over so I ran up to the store to get some pumpkin spice coffee and a Star magazine. Rarely do I read that junk, but for some reason today I was in the mood for it. The kids were playing and I sat at the kitchen table enjoying every hot sip of my PS coffee, getting dumber by the minute as I read my Star. The next thing I know, it's after 1pm. So I missed the gym because the day care is only open from 9 - noon. It's now not a good time for Target because it's almost nap time for G&D, and shower time for me. So my day hasn't gone as planned, but I'll try to get back on track when the kids wake up.
I don't think I mentioned this yet.... Please pray for my friend Stacia's dad (she was the maid of honor in my wedding). He is a truck driver in Hawaii. Last week, he got a flat tire while on the highway. He pulled to the side of the rode, and when he got out of his semi, he was hit by another truck. Miracously he is alive, but will be in the hospital for the next few months. It may take years for him to walk again, so you can only imagine what he is experiencing.
I almost forgot, proverbial saying: Character & Virtue:
If you are not good for yourself, how can you be good for others? ~ Spanish
Character is habit long continued. ~ Greek
Where you were born is less important than how you live. ~ Turkish
