Things keep getting better and worse and better and worse with the house situation. I won’t get into it too much but it’s currently a little hairy as to whether the sellers will have their stuff together enough for us to save them from foreclosure. In the meantime I’ve got happy parents from a daycare shoot that I did and Avery is writing sentences out of the blue which is way ahead of her kindergarten class. She figured out how to write “the sun is hot; the stove is hot; etc”. She’s amazing! Alec is in one of his sweeter but more destructive phases which are kind of fun to watch. But it’s also hard to discipline him when he’s being so sweet.
Church was great tonight and I think it was the perspective I needed. Paul Johnson gave a great talk that helped me and Erin both remember that we’re stressing out over something that really isn’t that important in the grand scheme. You won’t hear people saying somebody had a great house at their funeral.
It sounds like we’re going to be able to see Angie while she’s in town tomorrow. That’ll be good, she always makes me smile. J
Erin made some Jell-O tonight.
Kyle Brice had some interesting comments I’m contemplating, you should read them-he posted them the other day here.
And finally: If you're a Thanksgiving dinner, but you don't like the stuffing or the cranberry sauce or anything else, just pretend like you're eating it, but instead, put it all in your lap and form it into a big mushy ball. Then, later, when you're out back having cigars with the boys, let out a big fake cough and throw the ball to the ground. Then say, "Boy, these are good cigars!"
