Ramblings for today

I am very excited about the fundraiser tomorrow. Shani and I worked hard at the church and Erika and I worked hard in the rain. Erika and I loaded the cars yesterday in the pouring rain. I know, what were we thinking? At least it got done. Hopefully we have a great turn out. We have over 65 baskets!

Tonight I am missing my man. He decided to go on a fishing/kayaking/camping trip up in the Promise Land near the Poconos. So, I am watching Ghost Adventures all by myself. I tried to get Gavin into it and he cannot get over his fear of the unknown. Shawn and I have our shows that we watch late at night...when we can. Watching it without him is just weird. I am so glad he had the chance to go away. All summer he was upset at his lack of liesure activities. He was able to get two of his friends to go with him and go for an entire weekend. He called me tonight to tell me that he was all set up, ate some good burgers on the fire, and is excited about kayaking all day tomorrow. He really needed this. And, it makes us appreciate each other even more. Absence does make the heart grow fonder....even when you think you can't get any fonder of someone.

Tonight I am praying for all those people who had their basement flooded because of all the rain. Although the rain was well needed, it didn't need to ruin houses and people's important stuff. May they get everything cleaned out soon and prepare themselves for future flood issues.

Despite my crazy day of rain, kids, getting the church ready for tomorrow, cleaning out a hoarders car (ask me later), dinner with my brother and his kids, then a sleep over with my niece and was a pretty good day. I am glad it is over though. It is all in your attitude. Smile through the tears, dance in the rain, laugh a lot, don't sweat the small stuff, eat some chocolate and all will be fine at the end of the day.
