A Little Bit of Everything

-Aunt Sonya spoke at church Sunday for Sanctity of Life.  I was so very proud of her.  I love you Sonya, and am so thankful for your dedication to your ministry.  I was either on the verge of tears or crying all morning.  Obviously with our 5, we believe children are truly a gift and a life that should be cherished.  Thank you for all your work on the front lines in this war on abortion. 

-It may seem silly to some, but the simple concept of a sandwich has made me happy.  My children have never been cold sandwich eaters.  On a whim, I purchased some hoagie rolls, ham and cheese.  Apparently they didn't realize what they were missing and now  ask for ham sandwiches for lunch.  Yipeee for easy and healthy lunch alternatives!

-We received our papers in the mail to renew our tags.  Not real sure how, but ours is higher than last year.  I'm thankful we have cars that are 5 & 6 years old, I can't fathom what it would be like if we had new cars.  As it is, it's 1/2 a house payment.  Holy Cow!  We aren't prepared for that.  Hopefully the Y will get in gear and give me some hours ASAP.

-I went and got my eyes checked today.  I purchased a pair of frames online and haven't decided whether I'll use them or not.  I have issues with freckles on my eyes and pinguecula spots and both get worse with sun exposure.  If I don't use them for every day, I'll likely have shaded lenses put in them to protect my eyes from further degeneration.  The funny thing is, when I showed the doc my frames to see if they'd make good sunglasses his response surprised me.  He said, "They're not really appropriate for a pastor's wife.  They're too blingy for every day." My gut reaction was to have them filled and wear them for every day just out of defiance.  What do you think?
I resisted my defiant behavior and waited.  I have another pair of frames that will be here early next week from Wendy.  I'll make a decision once those arrive.  Apparently, Minister's wives aren't allowed to be trendy?

bling away Girl Friend and smile with style. Someone told me that and now I have fun with two fun pairs since 2007. Go and enjoy! ;-)

Whose standard was he judging you by? I thought they looked great on you. That was one man's opinion. What did Jared think? Did he like them? Did you? That's the more important question. It's not like they are diamond encrusted. Jeezalou!

Jared likes them but thinks the arms are too thick. I really want black/dark frames due to wearing caramel colored frames for 12 years. I'm eager for something different. Wendy is sending me a nice pair of Armani frames that are a little more petite than these. I'll decided once I see those on.
