bless my soul *[hands]

[ twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by
the things you didn't do than by they ones you did do.
so throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.
catch the tradewinds in your sails. explore. dream. discover.

~mark twain ]

oh...look at my new journal. a pal dropped it in
my mailbox yesterday along with a check for some
work i had done for her. i love it. it looks like my
doodles. 9 days i am heading to new orleans to work at
st. gabriel's parish. this is the 2nd team from my
church that is going down. 14 months after
katerina and most are still displaced, living in trailers,
other states or never left there destroyed homes.
we will be gutting, cleaning, dry-walling and working
in the yards - hoping that we bring them closer to

the journal came at the most appropriate time. she
will be traveling with me on this journey. i hope
to fill her pages with whatever comes my way.

i have waited for one of these trips to bless me
and now it is finally here. i am excited, anxious,
scared and thrilled all at once. bryce is behind
me on this, so that helps so much. the kids seemed
proud of their momma....that just feels good.

if you have any ideas on simple supplies i can take
to use in my journal, let me know. i am all ears!

happy wednesday!

need the info...

my husband resigned last nite, as head tennis coach. you
can read about it here that is how i found out. men...
what the hell is he thinking, not at least telling me he
was going to do this. seriously, don't get me wrong, he
has enough on his plate as a.d. but he should have told
me. this is my everyday. i am sure he was thinking of
me and the kids, when he made the decision. but just
out of humor and a bit of spite. i called the secretaries
and told them to leave a note on his desk saying this -
[your wife has taken a job in colorado. she will call you
when she gets there, she will discuss it then...]

he is not going to want to come home for dinner!

oh sweet wednesday!
