Sometimes my life seriously becomes nothing but a whirlwind....and I'm caught in the middle spinning like a top. This week has been like that with not a minute for blogging or catching up on anyone else's blogs. :( I'm sorry! I LOVE keeping up with all my blogging friends, so hopefully I can see what everyone's been up to this weekend.
Anyway...I was just thinking about some of the week's ups and downs today.
Let's start with the downs...(so we can end on a good note).
*A good friend of mine just lost her mother about seven months ago, and now her daddy is getting ready to die. So sad. I can't imagine losing both my parents so close together.
*My brother Brent and his wife Britney are expecting a baby in a few weeks. This week the doctor scared them a little bit indicating that there may be some problems, but we will not know until she is born. Please keep them in your prayers!
*Mark's car got hit! Can you believe that?
*Our air conditioner broke, and believe me, it is NOT going to be cheap to fix it. Holy cow!
But enough of those downers...let's think about the positives!
*Our school just got awarded the Blue Ribbon School of Excellence today! Woo-hoo! We are in the top five percent (in standardized test scores) of all the schools in North Carolina. We had a big ceremony today and everyone wore blue. I got to sing in a little ensemble to help celebrate.
*I found some old friends through Steve joining Facebook. I think I'm going to have to break down and join. haha It's just too much fun to connect with old friends!
*Ashley was voted "Most Likely To Succeed" by her Chi-Omega sorority sisters. She was also voted "Most Likely To Have Kids First". :)
*Today is the last day of April. Wow...May is here already??? LOVE IT! May is super busy, but it is one of my favorite months of the year.
*Lindy won an award this week for the awesome job she does in her TV Productions class at school. She really is great at editing videos and making slide shows put to music. I will have to put one on YouTube and show it to you sometime. Girl's got talent!
*Tomorrow is College Day at Laura and Lindy's high school. Lindy came into our room last night and was sad because she didn't have an East Carolina t-shirt to wear and didn't think she would have time to get one. Well....guess what my sweet husband did? While they were at school today, he went out and bought them t-shirts for each of their colleges and had them all laid out on the kitchen table when they got home along with balloons.
Yep, he's a keeper! ;)
I think overall the good outweighed the bad. I am blessed every day!
