I have been one busy lady the last few days! My dear friend, Catherine came to visit from Idaho. I was able to have her come over for a couple of hours Tuesday morning. After chatting for a couple of hours and taking a tour of the veggie and flower gardens we me "Third Musketeer", Margaret at Spooky's for lunch. We had a wonderful lunch and took a short drive afterwards. They came to my house afterwards and we visited for another hour until Margaret had to go pick up her kids. It was delightful! I love these two ladies! This was the first time Catherine met Lily.
Two of some of my dearest friends! I have been blessed to be included in these two lady's friendship. Catherine is our true Titus 2 Woman who constantly encourages us in the Faith and to love our husbands and children better.
I am also sooooo excited! We moved in this hours 3 years ago and I have been wanting to get the carpets cleaned even before we moved in. It just didn't happen. Either we didn't have the money or the time! I always like to get my carpets cleaned before a baby is ready to start crawling. Well, I got a screaming good deal. Get this...6 rooms for $125!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I typed that right! Can you believe it. They did a great job, too.
So I feel so good right now. My house feels a little cleaner and another goal has been accomplished. Praise the Lord!
Oh, my dishwasher was fixed this morning, too! It was still under warranty, so I didn't have to pay for anything.
Now, I need to get my dishes and laundry done. Being out with the kids for 4 hours has gotten me behind again. We did have fun, though. We went to the park. All of a sudden this swarm of children came and I was afraid I was going to lose my children in the horde of 50 or 60 4th and 5th Graders! Yikes! We raced towards the Suburban! Then we took a drive and visited the ranch where I grew up. It has changed a lot. We also went to visit Missy (the miniature horse we just gave away) in her new pasture. She looks happy and the kids were able to have a little closure. I was running late by that time and raced to Wendy's to pick up lunch for Steve and us. In the drive thru I had to have one kids pee in a cup and then Josh had to run Jessica in to the restaurant to go pee. Try having all that going on and ordering at the same time! Yikes! I did it though and got the order right. We took lunch to Steve at the fire station. It was nice seeing him and relaxing for a bit. Now we are home and enjoying our clean carpet. I have to put my house back together now. I think I'll have the kids help me with that. That's about it for now. I'll be posting my new devotion tomorrow!
