Tuesday Things.

Not sure if I'll make it to 10 or not.

1. Sunday was the memorial service for one of the people from our church that had passed away. It was a wonderful memorial. She was a little younger than I thought she was. She'd been through so much in her life, and it showed on the surface. But on the inside...she was...so young. She never, ever complained about the things that had happened to her. She always smiled. She always said she was "alright", even if you knew she wasn't. She was a wonderful example of faith, in that way. She always knew He would take care of her. I'd like to think I'm that way, but I'm not. I worry way too much. I don't put my problems over to Him as much or as trusting as maybe I should.
2. I made the photo board for the memorial service. I only knew her the last 11 years of her life. It was amazing looking through a lifetime of memories. Once again, I'm reminded of the power of photographs.
3. I started watching Thirty Something on Hulu back when I first had my surgery. I needed something to do whilst I sat in a recliner for a week. My parents never watched that show when it was on TV. I thought, hmmm maybe I would like it now that I actually am thirty-something. It's funny even though I am the same age as the people in the show...they will always seem older than me. Always.
4. I also started watching Felicity on Netflix thanks to my friend Allison. (Pete is gone this week, that's why I am filling my time with TV shows LOL!) I loved Felicity when I was younger. LOVED it. And when I watch that show now, I am exactly the same age as the characters. (as I was when the show first aired...18-19 years old)  Do you know what I'm talking about? Is that just me?
5. The fridge repairman came today. He was late. As expected. But the good news was it wasn't the compressor. And I don't have to go out and buy a new fridge. It was only a $279 fix. Not bad considering what it could have been. But dang, the labor was 3 TIMES the cost of the part. And he was only here an hour. Ca-razy!
6. Pete's in Wyoming this week. Hunting. Of course. I'm glad it's only a week this time. His dad went with him. I'm glad his dad decided to go. I hope they're having fun and will be home soon.
7. My children decided it would be awesome to lick their fingers and stick them in the sugar bowl I have on the counter for coffee. Yeah. I wanted to get really mad at them for doing that. Then I remembered I used to do the exact same thing to the butter when I was a kid. Gross. Don't worry, I threw out the sugar and moved it so they couldn't easily get it. You won't have to worry if you come over for coffee ;-)
8. So I have this friend. Well I guess technically she's more like an acquaintance. I've known her for a long time, and we have mutual friends. We've just never really hung out before. So all of a sudden she wants to hang out. Which is fine. Only she didn't call me to ask. She asked one of our mutual friends to "set it up". Isn't that kind of strange? I guess she's maybe intimidated by me? Or at least that's sort of the way I feel whenever I'm around her. I don't know why that is. I can hardly intimidate my own children let alone someone else....an adult. I don't really know what to make of all this. Only now, I'm supper uncomfortable to hang out with her. I'm uncomfortable because obviously she is. I don't know. It's just weird.
9. Um well....that's all I can come up with. I need to go get all the food from outside in the carport and put them back in the house. fuuuuuun!

oh, the sugar bowl... that is a hard one to not laugh at!
I will have to check out felicity on the netflix. i put madmen in there, and find it somewhat depressing and disturbing. as well as unrealistic.
my big draw is always foreign films. I am a sucker for those subtitles! LOL :)

1. It never ceases to amaze me how you should never covert what you don't know. People lives always looks soo different to what they really are.
I one day hope I can give my problems over to Him too.

2. Photographs are history that tell more than words.

3. Never watched it now you have me intrigued...like I need one more thing.

4. OMG I thought that was just me...i totally think I'm still that age...which is sooo embarrassing based on the shows I watch. Thank god I don't watch Sesame Street any more though! LOL

5. Why do they just try and rob us of every nickle and dime...it's just wrong!

6. I know you're going to show pictures of what they've caught when they get back...I'll have to put on my big girl panties for that one! I swear I could be a vegetarian! :)

7. I love this one, this is how kids are supposed to be...doing kid like things instead of terrorizing us or the neighborhood...bless them for enjoying their childhood days.

8. I would feel super duper uncomfortable and I'd def want to know why she couldn't just come to me or even text me in the first place.

panne...that my word verification! LOL

That is really weird about the girl not talking to you directly...because you are so very intimating corey :) - how could she not want to talk directly to someone with the sweetest voice ever?

glad your fidge stuff is worked out...i hate stuff like that - and with pete gone i'm sure it was even a bigger headache!
