Recently my mom has joined the world of texting. I'm getting a lot of text from her as she practices her new found talent.
I asked my mom this past Sunday if I could have her newspaper for the ads and coupons (as I attempt to delve into couponing). Here is how our text conversation went:

So, this morning I called my mom up and said "Mom, what does LOL mean?" She says "Lots of Love". Awe, the sweet innocents of a parent learning to text. I educated her on the 'real' meaning just in case she gets a text that someone has died, I'd hate for her to reply with "Oh, I'm so sorry. LOL"

Goals for May

April showers bring May flowers! However, the rain clouds didn't get the memo. I don't think it has stopped raining once for 48 hour straight!
So, we have been spending a lot of time inside and Spring Fever is spreading like wildfire. As I was doing laundry (never ending) I got to thinking, thinking about my laziness. I've been in a funk lately. I'm overwhelmed by this messy house and I just feel like throwing in the towel. But I don't have a clean one to throw! ha
Time for me to get out of the funk and not only set goals but achieve them! For this month I'm going to think of 5 achievable goals.
1. I'm going to read Water for Elephants. I have had the book for a while but never actually read it.
2. Spring clean my kitchen/dining area including the over loaded pantry that also doubles as my craft closet.
3. I've faithfully attended our Beth Moore Bible Study meetings, but this time around I didn't do the homework, so I plan on getting at least the first two weeks of homework done with a fine tooth comb.
4. Get at least one purse made. I haven't been in the mood to sew much lately, but I have a purse promised to a friend I hold dear, so I shall get my hands, scissors, and sewing machine in gear!
5. Write at least 5 letters to my little brother. He is going to be gone for a while. I don't know how long, but I want him to know that wherever he is, his sister loves him no matter what. Even though he aggravates my every nerve.
