Today has been a quiet solemn day in respect to 9/11…

I am off today…

I ended up getting Sunday as a vacation day and Tuesday/Thursday off this week…

I rescheduled my eye appointment for Tuesday…

I do indeed need glasses…

I picked out some pretty purple ones…

Actually I ended up getting the first pair I looked at and yes I went back through them all just to be sure…

I will have trifocals…

I kept trying to tell her that my Gabapentin made it hard for me to see but she said it was because I was past 40…

I think she said my eyes were 20/30 and 20/50 but I don’t know which cause she talked so fast…

They’ll be ready in a week or so…

I was up at 3am, partly because the phone woke me and partly because I fell asleep at 8pm so I had slept for 7 hours…

And partly because I didn’t take my Gabapentin before going to bed…

So I got up and took it…

I tried to go back to sleep but my mind was thinking…

It was hot and I couldn’t get comfortable…

By 4am I had a headache, the nauseous kind that even lying on the pillow hurts…

So I got up and took an ibuprofen…

I think I may have dozed between 4 and 5am but finally just got up…

I lifted boxes at work yesterday and brought up cart loads of new shoe receipts…

So I’m sure I did too much and stressed my neck…

I’m better now as I’ve been resting all day…

I made out the cards for September…

I sorted through my papers from work and updated some reports…

I filled the bird feeders…

I read a couple of chapters in my book: The Cat Sitter’s Pajamas by Blaize Clement… It’s a murder mystery…

I of course checked on Facebook and Email…

Our internet has been going down all day… I keep telling the boys it’s the solar storm but they don’t believe me…

I vacuumed and straightened the kitchen…

I washed the laundry, now just need to put it away…

Son3 is home from school, he says he has no homework…

Son2 is off at school, he wasn’t able to do his homework because the internet went down…

Son3 is having frozen pizza for dinner and I’m having a salad…

I should have some of hubby’s chicken soup he made too…

And then I’ll read some more of my book…

Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...

it's OK.

Just rest for a moment. It's OK. Yes, things are crazy, yes, the world is going nuts. Yet, deep underneath the stormy waves, there, in the core of your being, there is pure silence, pure love. And ... it's ... just ... OK.

 

Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...

you are asked for very little, - just the totality of your being.

God demands the totality of your being. That you invest all of yourself into celebrating the glory and the preciousness of being alive right now, no holding back and saving for later.

Happy Journaling…

Love the picture of son1 with his son1. So natural! We are supposed to be SUPER hot next week; I'm not looking forward to it at all. I bet you'll look great with glasses :)

I agree that picture of son1 and his son is a great one! Sounds like you needed the day off for sure. You got a lot done though. Hope your Friday is a fantastic one!

Your little grandbaby is so precious! Love the photo of your son with his son. Sounds like busy times as always - guess what I did? I quit my job! Yep, for real! Here's to a great week! :)

Peace of the Lord be with you on this day and always. x

That grandbaby is adorable!
And your son is so handsome.

Linda, if I ever met you, we would be best friends, I just know it!
