Turkey Update 2013

 Yum Yum Yum
 Meaningful art experience
 Au natural
Maybe my favorite

Tradition again this year as we attended our little school's annual Thanksgiving feast for 1500. Phew.
Have to share my favorite disguised turkey or art turkey center pieces. Good thing there's so many first grade artists to decorate the tables!

And, FYI, our own turkey rocked this year! I followed this recipe and people - we have a winner!
Unless we get brave and decide to start frying, it will be our family's favorite.

You can't see it, but there is a little silver boat inside a bowl of water inside the sink he is leaning on. He has a wet paper towel and a green cup. "I made a whirlpool and now here comes the rain" he says as he squeezes the wet towel over the little silver boat that's not supposed to sink but happily is because of his efforts.

Last Saturday, we had no "have to dos."
Tonight's were light.

It's nice to feel the freshness of choosing what to do instead of the stale "have to," even when the "have to" is a great thing.

It's nice to just be able to lean up by the sink and play in the water.
Or- hit the keyboard.

I believe- as far as my "have to" might constrain me- I am back.

Word - I got versed.

Attention Blogger domain owners:

If you haven't found out yet, it's a major whoop-dee-doo to update your payment settings with the new Google Blogger deal.  It'll "Bloggle" your mind!

Please don't spend hours like me trying to figure it out - 

Get past that stinking "admin console invalid request" problem. Here's what worked for me... and finally got me past the awful "invalid request" message. Be sure to follow the directions. Where it says 'REPLACETHISWITHYOURDOMAIN.' you need to do just that. Replace it.

(Once I did the "Reset  Password" option, I found my eyeballs getting all blurry and it took about 10 more nervous minutes to complete.) Found at this link.

I also learned having a scribe when my eyes are tired is fun. 
Typed by said scribe who I just kicked off the keyboard.
Who knew what anxiety the thought of losing this space would bring me. Apparently I have strong feelings for this little blog and will be staying a while. Yay.

It's time

It's time for me to start writing again.
Just been stuck at a rest stop for a very long time trying to determine whether the hard lessons I've been learning are ok to share or not.
I feel like today is the day to decide if I just stop or go on.

Last night I ran into an acquaintance & in our short visit I told her how I wished I could just have three uninterrupted hours to really work on a house plan. It's killing me that we haven't even got that far with the new house.

Last night, my car started having trouble. This morning it decided to get stuck in park - until the tow truck driver tried backing it out of the garage. Then it changed gears just fine. I took it in and hopefully it can be fixed - for not too much $.

The teacher I work with texted that she had a fever today and would not be coming in.
So, I asked if I she would mind if I just worked on getting my issues fixed today & she said that was fine.

I didn't realize I had so many issues.
The last year has really been hard.
Every time I think I've got things cleared up, something new pops up.
I had a little break down when I finally go back home.
Because- a little boy (j's age) in one of my school groups died (the same weekend anniversary of the time we almost lost j) and I've held it together pretty good so far
Because- my mr. is having to hard things for church that make me worried for him and he's got new responsibilities at work and I worry that he's ok
Because- miss s called and said, "I'm going to say to you what you would say to me - did you exercise today?" and the answer was no.
Because- we are over scheduled and I am really worried about Saturday
Because-  I read this - particularly #3 decide & #7

I need to decide
get off the road or get up and grow.

It took me an hour or two to realize what a gift the car problem is.
Someone heard my heart
and I am grateful.

Again, I haven't written in a while, but I don't want to forget this one. It's a doozy. I work in an elementary school. I teach ...
