Ugh...I've got it...that sore-throat, stuffed up nose, sinus pressure junk...I've been trying to think positively, but yesterday I pretty much didn't have a voice, so here we are...Gotta love Sudafed,'s helping some...Princess has it, too, and I think she gave it to me, and I'm pretty sure Mom gave it to her...It was inevitable :)

Anyways, I do have a pretty serious prayer request. A lady from church lost her sister last night...Her sister's house (actually duplex) caught on fire, and she didn't make it...I guess she wasn't IN the fire, but maybe she inhaled too much smoke, or her heart failed her because of the stress (she had some health problems, I believe), but whatever the cause, LaLa isn't doing well with it all...I guess she's been saying stuff like, Jesus brought Lazarus back from the dead...just wacky stuff...I still think it's the shock, and she's a pretty excitable person anyways...Please keep her & her family in your prayers. LaLa's sister's hubby had just gotten off work, and went in the burning duplex to look for her, and LaLa's sister was outside looking for him...he made it, though, and will be alright...the details are a little fuzzy to me, but you'd have to know this family...LaLa's sister asked what my name was like 5 different times like it was the first time we'd ever met (she went to our church for awhile, but I guess they found a church closer to their home they liked). Anyways, she was a little loopy, and something was just off with her, ya know? I can see how she would've gotten turned around & confused...Anyways, please pray?

So, I'm going to Sam's Club to get a sandwhich ring & a few other things, because they're going to have a houseload of out of town family coming I thought I'd get those muffins from Sam's, too, for breakfast...This is when I wish I had more than enough money so I could just help provide them everything they shouldn't have to worry about right now...

I'm not looking forward, though, to going over there...I don't know if LaLa will be sane by then, and I don't do well with insane, ya know? I just never know what to say...But it's not up to me, is it? Only the Lord can REALLY comfort them right now, and I just pray He uses me, and that I don't start thinking it's ME that has to think of words of wisdom or anything, does that make sense?

Okay, on to happier things...I went to water aerobics last night!! :) Daisy met me there, and it was a lot of fun :) We went to Captain D's afterwards for supper, and got some more great coupons (we're still using the ones we got from Christmastime, too!! LOL) It was very good :) It hit the spot :)

And, again, I'm gonna try & work on the church bulletin board tonight :) Since I can't really sing with all this crud, I'll just do the bulletin board tonight while they practice, and there are other kids there (hopefully) that can play with Princess & keep her out of trouble. Sunday I took down a lot of stuff, and then Monday night, I finished by taking all the old border off & throwing it away (it was AWFUL, and very used)...So, tonight is the start of the "fun stuff" :) I'll put the poster paper up there, and put up my border, and then tonight I'll work on the "category" stuff...I still have to brainstorm, and I'm not sure that what I've got is all that great...I'll take what I've got with me, and see what kind of changes I'll have to make...I might just cut out all the letters since I've got that stuff to do it with...I'm not crazy about the stuff I've printed out of the computer...but I've got other options with that...I promise to take a picture of the final project :) After I get it up the way I like it, changing it shouldn't be such a big ordeal...Plus, I'll probably get some seasonal kits from the Teacher Geek Store :) LOL :) I'm just itching to find a reason to go back!! LOL :)

Okay, I'd better go since I've bored you with the details of bulletin board arrangements...

Hope you all are OK :) and having a great week!! :)

I'm so sorry about your friend's sister. I can't imagine what she is going through, but I can't imagine what I would do when she's asking my name over and over. That is very nice of you to get food for the family...maybe you can just drop it off with someone you don't know and leave!

Glad that bulletin board is coming along! LOL! Can't wait to see a picture of this Picaso masterpiece!

Lots of Love!

I also saw that story on the news. How sad! I bet they'll appreciate you bringing food over. That's a nice thing to do!

Sorry you have the "ick". I had it...hubby had it...yada yada. Definitely no fun!

Looking forward to seeing a picture of the bulletin board! (we're so easy to please around here, aren't we?) :) Love ya!
