Today is just a list of randomness. There are so many things going on at once right now because it is that time of year when everything is shifting and changing. So we will just hit the high spots today!
1-First of all, I love summer. I really do. It is probably my favorite season. But last night I was out around 10:00 pm, going on a last minute Target run with Lindy, and it was still almost 90 degrees outside! Seriously...this heat and humidity is a little out of control at this point. I went into Bath and Bodyworks yesterday and all their yummy fall candles were out. I was so tempted to get one, but it is still too hot outside to fool myself into thinking it's fall. It won't be long, though, before I am getting one of these...
2-My house is finally getting back to normal. Laura and Lindy have moved their stuff out and I can now see the floor in our guest room again. And the garage only has a few more days until it will be somewhat back to normal. And I will be taking my school stuff back to school next week! Isn't a nice, uncluttered house the best thing? It sure does make me happy.
3-I am almost finished reading Radical. Wow...that is a CONVICTING book! I would challenge you to read it just to get yourself thinking.
4-Poor Rocky. It is really too hot for him to go outside and go for walks or play right now. So every time I sit on the couch, he brings a toy and puts it at my feet. He practically begs people to play with him so he can run off some of his energy!
5-I want to see Eat, Pray, Love. I didn't read the book, but the movie looks really interesting to me.
6-I am so excited about football season starting! The Panthers are playing tonight in their first pre-season game against the Baltimore Ravens. (Michael Orr plays for them. You know...the guy from The Blindside?) We are also planning on going to several college football games this fall at NC State, ECU, and Appalachian. Plus we are looking forward to some Friday Night Lights watching my nephew Bryson play football. He will be a senior this year and that is always so much fun. I miss my kids being in high school and going to those games on Friday nights!
I just saw this video and it just about made me cry. If you want to get pumped for some fall football, you need to watch it!
7-Tomorrow we are going to Greenville to see Lindy's apartment and say goodbye to her. She and Laura drove up today and unloaded everything by themselves and got it all fixed up. We are just going to see it and say one last goodbye to her. Laura will head back to Appalachian on Sunday and then everyone will be where they need to be and we will be done with college moving (and shopping sprees!)
8-I have had fun reading Babbling Abby's blog this week. She has dedicated the whole week to teachers and getting back to school. My "teacher brain" is starting to kick in right about now so it has been fun getting new ideas. Next Wednesday is my first day at my new school. I have no idea what to expect, but I know it will be an adventure. I am going in with lots of energy and excitement because I know God sent me on this assignment and I know He has it all in His control!
7-I saw THE craziest interview I think I have ever seen this week on the Today Show. Natalie Morales was interviewing this family...
and I have never in my life seen a reporter have this much trouble keeping the interview under control. It will make you laugh and break out in a sweat just watching it! Here is the link.
8-We went to a funeral this past weekend for the sister of a good friend of ours who passed away last week. She was only 29 and was diagnosed with a brain tumor just 11 weeks ago. She had three little children and I have just had her family on my mind all week. She was a sweet, nurturing, fun, bubbly mom, wife, and friend. I know her family is going to miss her so much.
If you can, please remember this family in your prayers. I can't imagine how hard this is going to be on them.
Thank you blogging friends!! :)
