Monday or Tuesday

I posted this on a message board, but wanted to share it here too...because it really shows how scary I can be...so here is Monday's post on Tuesday...

Well we have had a crazy weekend and are starting the week off kinda crazy too!

All last week was spent preparing for a yard sale and I will just say this...in 12 hours we made this amount...then we list two things on craigslist and within twelve hours sold two bigger items and made more than double what we made during the two day garage sale....hmmm...maybe that should tell me something!
So we still have a few big items that I will gradually be listing on Craigslist, then I will make some goodwill trips, then HOPEFULLY, we will have an EMPTY GARAGE...oh that will be the day~!So in between all of this, on Thursday I went to a play and got to see only half of it because DAVID had had ENOUGH!
Friday was a co-op meeting and garage sale
Saturday was Garage Sale and women's night...
Sunday-Church...then I wanted to crash, but my house is a pit, so we worked on that a little....
Today, school, skating lessons, trip to the ortho because Joshua is out of rubber bands...AND we have to be there next week....and a homeschool meeting tonight

I wanted to tell you all about the women's night we had a church...it was alot of fun...they called it the Parade of Aprons...you were supposed to bring an appetizer and the recipe for it...they had some cooking type conversation starters...like what was the worst thing you ever made, etc...then a friend and I each did a make and take recipe card...they turned out cool...so we had about 12 ladies making these cards...they had some little prizes...it was fun...

Anyway, I got there a little early, because I live life on the edge and had no idea what on earth I was going to do for my make and take...so I was grabbing the paper cutter from the copy room and misjudged the door opening...clonked the cutter into the door and the cutter jabbed me in the eye...it hurt SO bad...I was laughing ( because I couldn't believe I was so stupid) and crying because it hurt so bad...I put my hand up to it and then looked at my hand...there was blood all over... so I went to the bathroom to clean up..and it is this LITTLE NICK OF A THING....bled like I had a GASH and needed stitches...I couldn't believe it. SO it swelled up and I had this mini goose egg of a thing on my eye....today it is turning purple...it's not real big...it just hurts like it is...so if you see me, you can rest assured that I should not be trusted with particular things and that nothing with a spectacular story happened....and you can laugh with me....just don't let me catch you doing it...it really did hurt!
Well, because I do that kind of stupid stuff all the time....both physically and spiritually, I am really GLAD that God's mercies are NEW every morning....clean slate...and we can do it again and by God's grace it will be better, because we will have learned a lesson from our Father God and we are walking with the indwelling Spirit guiding us into all truth...If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
It doesn't have to be a Manic Monday~!
Recipe cards...My friend made the top one...I made the bottom one...
