December Second

 

BrrrItscoldRoxy

It’s very windy this morning and just starting to sprinkle… we’re supposed to have rain all day…

Hubby made blueberry pancakes for breakfast and hot chocolate…

The cats keep wanting outside and then inside… they don’t like the wind… but then after being inside for a few minutes they think let me go back outside, maybe it’s sunny now… and then five minutes later they are wanting back inside again… and never at the same time… one comes in the other goes out… the changing of the guards… Maple is in at the moment and Indy is out…

Hubby and I both put up a tub each of ornaments this morning… still a couple of tubs to go… I’ve been taking pictures… I’ll share tomorrow on my day off…

On this day, God wants you to know that...

...faith soothes all suffering.

Nothing is that difficult when you have God on your side.

I close again tonight… we are having our last friends and family event of the year… extra 5-20% storewide at Sears from 6-9pm…

Saturday I got all my counts updated for the week, Sunday I got all the kids shoes mated back together and today I plan on opening all the boxes that came in this week… I had several call outs this weekend and we are crazy busy so we just keep getting messier… and I have the MOD phone every day for at least three hours…

This always seems to be the case when we have a visit coming…

I’m sharing God wants you to know today as this is what I always tell myself when getting ready for these visits… if it’s his plan for me to fail then I can only do my best… however I always beat myself up and the more I freak out to be perfect the more things go wrong… after almost two years of being the lead you’d think I’d quit beating myself up… the visitor has already seen me at my worst and even once he complimented how great we looked and couldn't find anything to comment on as needing fixed… so he should expect at this time of year for us to be at our worst… as long as we have a plan for recovering which we are doing… it’s just not going to be all recovered by time he comes… however there are a few things we do need to be ready for, and those are what I’m freaking out about… but then I remind myself all in God’s plan as long as I don’t give up… but then I get mad at myself cause I forget and beat myself up once again…

I need to watch Joyce Meyer every day… I have over 40 of her lectures saved to the DVR… but then I watch Ghost Adventures instead… lol… but she reminds me that God wants me to be happy, that is why he gave us life… not to be miserable and beat ourselves up over stuff we can’t control… what can I control, thanking him every day for my job and everything he gives me… and for the messy customers I can use as an excuse for not being ready…. no…?

It’s raining now… both cats are in, except Holly but she is probably in the garage…

Son2 and son3 are on their video games… son3 is supposed to be finishing his Christmas list… he and hubby are taking the toys to the Toys for Tots Marines today…they got a police car, fire engine and ambulance that light up and make very loud siren noises…

Happy Journaling…

Sometimes we all need reminders like that that we are not perfect and stop running ourselves down. You can only do the best you know how and then let it go. It's been raining here all day too. My sister and I went mall walking just to get out and get some exercise.

I think those are great toys to give for Toys for Tots! Always a favorite of little boys!! I did hear Northern California can get lots of rain; looks like it is affecting you guys too! Too cute about the cats; just like a little kid!
