I know I’ve been slacking in the blogging area over the past few days! We have been busy lately and I just can’t seem to get my energy back. I’m just barely keeping up right now.
Yesterday was pirates and princesses day at Chick-Fil-A, or so I thought. Anyone dressed like a pirated or princess gets a free meal. I was surprised the parking lot was so empty. Pirate and Princess day is tomorrow. N was decked out in pirate pants, hat, patch, and hook. J was Cinderella and I was just extremely thankful that I hadn’t worn a tierra myself in attempt to score 3 free meals instead of just two! It worked out ok though, they felt sorry for us and gave us the free meals anyway. N and J didn’t seem to notice that they were the only ones dressed up, we didn’t have to fight the hoards of pirates and princesses for a table and I didn’t have to cook dinner!
When we arrived at Chick-Fil-A to be solo pirate and princess family, I had just left the YMCA where the swim suit drying machine shredded my maternity swim suit bottoms. Not something you can just run out and replace. I think it will require buying a whole new suit. This is especially disheartening because the machine already tore a hole in my top, which I replaced with another one that matched the old bottoms. Now, no bottoms, no way to swim until I find new ones and these things can’t be sewn back up! I won’t be stupid enough to use the machine a third time.
There are always still things worth smiling about. On the way home, N asked me if Jesus was giving his body and his blood for his disciples to drink today or not. It took me awhile to compute the question but, he had learned at school that this preceded Jesus dying so he thought it might have been today. I love getting to answer those questions!
They were watching their Charlie Brown Easter video just before bed while I was ironing in the other room. I overheard J say, “Hey, let’s pray. Dear God, I ask that those kids aren’t mean to Charlie Brown any more . Amen.” I decided to save the ‘why we don’t pray for characters on TV’ conversation for another day.
That is enough rambling. I’ll try to post pictures from spring break sometime this week and then be back to being more consistently next week.
