Happy Thursday & Happy September.
I love September. This month marks 11 years I have been married to Gary. I still can't believe I met him in March of 1996. I have known this man for over 15 years. That is a long time.
September is the month I usually start cooking soups and Gary makes chili. I'm ready for cold weather food. Corn bread in front of college football on TV sounds like perfection!
Today I am getting a new dishwasher. I am so stinkin' excited. Our dishwasher has been on the fritz since January. We have been washing dishes by hand for way too long. Sometimes we load the dishwasher and it works. But today is a fun day for me. I am dying from the excitement.
Who knew mattresses have a 10 year warranty? I didn't until I researched my mattress. So, we also have a man coming today to see if our mattress can be replaced under warranty. Gary's arms have been falling asleep at night for over a year. I was worried to death about him. I begged him to see the doctor. He did, and he is fine. Come to find out, it is our mattress. After I did a bit of research other people have the same complaint. Who knew?? So maybe just maybe we will be getting a new mattress in the days to come.
I am getting a T-shirt with Layla's name and soccer number on my back. I am officially a soccer mom. I love it. She is loving soccer so much, but she is asking to go back to gymnastics also. I held off on putting her into another activity, but she loves gymnastics so much. I don't want her to be bogged down with too many activities. In a month or so I will add gymnastics back into her little life. I can see it in her eyes in the evenings...she is so tired. For now rest is more important. You know?!?
I love this picture. It's my new favorite!
I read a book y'all! I am so happy I read The Help! It really was an amazing book and I cried when I finished it. If you have been wanting to read it, you should. It is a great book and I can't wait to see the movie. Thanks Auntie for letting me borrow the book!
I love reading my daily devotional. I enjoy this quiet time in the morning. It is brief, but important to me. I get an email every morning from crosswalk.com. I have been receiving the Girlfriends in God newsletter. There are tons of different newsletters to choose from: marriage, parenting and many more. I'm so glad I heard about this newsletter via twitter! You should check it out if you need a daily read.
Now I am heading outside to play baseball with Hayden. He wants to hit the ball with his "strike bat." Last time I threw the baseball to him I clocked him in the eye. I wish I were joking. I usually have terrible aim. I can't believe I hit him with the ball. Luckily it was a soft ball.
Have a great day!
