What's a Blogger to do?

What IS a blogger to do when there's nothing GOOD to report??

~The kids are bickering. Seriously. I'll be glad when this phase is over.
I haven't quite figured out what's going on. I mean, besides sibling power trips. *eye roll*
I wish I had something FUNNY to blog about as a result of the bickering, but, alas. I don't.

~ Finances are not a happy topic around here.
We look at each other and frown. Then one of us has to make the choice.
The Choice to say: It's grim. It's down. But Our God will supply! The riches of the wicked are set apart for the righteous.
That can be a hard choice, I must say.
Especially if there are too many people around you who are so GRIM about it!!
I refuse to get back into a poverty spirit.

Someone said that if you look at that bill and start fretting over it - then the bill is bigger than God. I loved that. There's no piece of paper that is bigger than my God.

~ The professor broke a tooth. He thinks it happened last week. He started having major headaches. MAJOR. He attributed it to the stress at work and clenching his jaw. I went to the movies Tuesday night and came home with pop corn for him. He got up quickly at one point and said, "Great, I've got something stuck in my teeth". Then he came back and said, "Nothing in my teeth but something broke off."

He went to the dentist today. $600 later - he's had a root canal and a crown. The x-ray showed the break, down the center of the tooth exposing the nerve. I shudder to think....


Hopefully this will fix the headaches, too.

~ My original plans for summer were swim lessons, math, and maybe some small study stuff that I won't be able to accomplish over the normal school year. So far, I've only accomplished swim lessons. I've got the kids doing math today. It's taken them FOREVER to accomplish the tasks at hand. Things will have to change greatly when school starts back up. Especially if I'm going to have 4 students to teach.


I am SO not sure how I'm going to make that one happen.
I'm starting to pray about it now. LOL
A friend has suggested school -- but I have a check in my Spirit about that.
So we'll proceed - full speed ahead!!

I really need to change my perspective, too. This is all practice for the future, I'm sure.

~ The professor turned 40. He's been getting gifts off and on all month.
He needed a new mouse for his games.
He wanted some new games. So that's what he got...
One of the games he received was "Warcraft". NOT the online version as The Professor is a solo player. But the orc on the box is a bit -- ugly.

The professor wanted to go out to eat on his birthday.
On the way home, J-man asked him, "Are you going to go home and play your creepy looking game?"

We had to laugh.

~ I had a fight with a friend who called me judgmental.
I'm not -- and the fact that she even suggested it really hurt my feelings.
So I was in a funk most of yesterday.
The funk didn't help the fact that I was already feeling behind on life.
It didn't help that I'm still trying to catch up on ignoring the laundry for 2 weeks. LOL

~ Even in the midst of life --
God is GOOD!!
He is still on the throne.
He Still loves me.
There is no shadow of turning with Him.

What's funny - this morning I woke up with a song in my heart.
Not a worship song....but a song just for me.
Zeph. 3:17 says: The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing

So - today - in the midst of feeling behind...amid the noise of siblings ... the pressures of life...
God Sang over me that I'm on Top of the World. :-)

And I love it!!

She has pink Drums!!

Wow what a week you have had! You really can school four kids you know. Im doing five this year. My sister is schooling ten while still another sister is schooling 6. Its really not as hard as you might think. I am doing my two and then I have three other homeschool students full time from 7:30 to 3:30 pm four days a week. Its all doable! :)

Take care. Your poor child with the tooth problem. I have a crown scheduled for august and Im freaking out. Even considering canceling it! I hate dentists.

*smile* I haven't heard that song in a long time!

Poor Denim family. You've been put through the wringer! Please take a deep breath and don't make any quick decisions. I know you will do whatever is best for your lovely children, and if that includes school, then so be it. It doesn't mean you failed teaching them. You can always come back to homeschooling when you are in a better place. I know many families that would go back and forth, or half in school, half homeschooled.

I know your head has been really loud right now. Quiet down and listen to your heart! ;o)

Peace and Laughter!
