Hi, I’m Vicki. You’ll recognize me once I start telling you about my life again. It seems I haven’t been posting a lot of current stuff that’s been going on around here. Today we’re going to do it Twitter style because, for now, I’ve stopped Twittering. And I’m not limiting myself to 140 characters.
*Ashlyn scares herself every time she steals the keys and sets off the truck alarm. Yet, she. still. does. it. I think it’s actually a toddler Olympic event to see how fast she can run to my lap.
*I’m reading Respectable Sins and am getting pretty convicted. Doesn’t the name itself begin to convict you? I hope to post more about it in the future.
*I’m also just beginning the Beth Moore study Living Beyond Yourself about the fruit of the Spirit. I studied this with some ladies at the turn of the century, but it’s high time I revisited this fruit.
*Kids are not much more than accessories nowadays. Just something I’ve seen down here.
*Crocs have infiltrated themselves way too far into our culture. Moms are having their pretty little girls in their prettiest Sunday dresses (smocked bishop style, just so you know) wear crocs on their feet. The horror! I never have been nor never will be a fan of those shoes. Reagan has outgrown two fake pair that other people have given her. I told her never again will crocs cross the threshold of this house as foot wear choice. Sorry to you diehard fans out there.
*Speaking of darling clothes. Dillards, where have you been all my adult, child-rearing life? You have some seriously cute dresses for my two daughters. And in both respective sizes so they can match. I’ve heard you have great sales. Those dresses probably never stay on the racks long enough to make the sales.
*Speaking of darling clothes on sale. Apparently there are two huge consignment shows here in August that feature lots of those prettiest Sunday dresses. I’m already lamenting selling all the girls’ stuff at my yard sale in April. Had I kept it I could now consign it and be allowed early access to all the smocked goodness. Noted for next year. Wait, I won’t be here next year at this time…
*Since when does Reagan wear an 11 1/2 shoe? Wasn’t she just growing out of the 8s?
*Observed while walking into Target: a couple walking out the in door to shoplift. The magnetic buzzer thingy went off and no one tried to stop them. Target probably has a hands off policy, which prevents them from actually touching a perp anyway. Pansies. I say tackle first, ask questions later.
*Here’s Ashlyn in what I have dubbed “Serenity’s Dress”.
Serenity is my little blog friend with leukemia. Lifting Up Serenity is her website. And if you go to this post you’ll see the dress that inspired the above purchase (and you can read about the 3rd stage of treatment for ALL).
That’s it for now. We’re beginning homeschool today so your prayers for any and everything in my life are coveted (in a good way). Reagan is sleeping in today. What a <i>great</i> way to start off the school year! This will allow me to take a shower. If I press the publish button now.
