Second, I bought my 2009 calendar off Ebay (it was new, but less expensive and I figured I'd get it sooner.) I just got an email though saying there was a mistake, they're refunding my Paypal account, and yeah, no calendar. SO I go to order it off the Polestar site...and THEY only accept Visa or Mastercard...and our Mastercards have expired so we're waiting on our new ones. So yeah, again, no calendar. I have all this stuff going on and it's not written down anywhere! Grrrr.
UPDATED: Our cards arrived in the mail today, so my calendar has been succesfully ordered through the Polestar site. Yay!
Today I ventured out into quite a bit of snow. (It took me a long time to get it all off my windshield...ah, the joys of a detached garage that is still filled with a bunch of our junk--er, posessions--so I have to park on the street.) I only lost traction once. (Note to self: go THROUGH yellow light on the snowy road, don't try to stop.) We went and played at a friend's house this morning and then made a trip to Costco. It was really cold (again, the joys of a detached garage. Makes carrying groceries in quite an adventure!)
I may live to eat these words...but...I really, really LIKE the winter weather here. I get to actually wear fun scarves and gloves and it is so, so beautiful. I LOVE the different seasons and it is a really neat way to see God's majesty in the world He has made. My kids are loving it too.
I just started the book Sacred Marriage, for my mom's group at church. So far it's good, and pretty interesting. The subtitle is, "What if God Designed Marriage to Make Us Holy More Than to Make Us Happy?" (See, doesn't it sound intriguing?) Semi-related sidenote: I love being married.
Yesterday I found a copy of The Maker's Diet at a second-hand store for $2.99. Cannot WAIT to read it!!!
Remember how I bought these great alphabet cards? Well I started putting them up on the wall in the kids' playroom. I did "A" through "F". And I've misplaced the box. I cannot find it ANYwhere. When I told Anna I don't know where it is and therefore I can't finish putting them up, she quickly informed me, "That's why you should put them up all at the same time." Wow. Thanks.
Okay, that is all. Happy Monday!
