My girl is coming home today!
Thursday, July 23, 2009
Tonight is one of those nights that if truth be told I should probably be spanked and sent to bed without supper.
I miss my girl. She has been at camp for nearly 2 weeks, and I need her home.
I love my boys, but they never do the dishes.
Scooby peed and pooped under the table, and my mop is worn out from overuse. But lucky for me, Brian and Joel just went to Walmart to buy me a new one.
My legs hurt. I am tired of being diabetic, and I want a candy bar.
See what I mean. Spank me and send me to bed!

I am changing a lot of things - this blog included. When I have more time, I will elaborate more. But right now the technical aspect of changing "Thoughts of a Preacher's Wife" are taking most of my available free time.
So for now here are a few of the things I have been pondering - in bullet form:
- Work - new job? I actually sent out two resumes! Why did I do this - I hate change!
- Home - rearranging/getting ready for winter. Sounds primitive I know, but last winter was hard in so many ways. I am taking my cues from Proverbs 31.
- Kids - lots of thoughts about the kids growing up and the new challenges they face. Exciting yet scary! These are the thoughts that keep me awake at night.
- Me - entering a new decade! Redefining myself. I am determined to be a new, better me!
- Church - new convictions about my leadership with the kids. Doctrine - it's all about doctrine. Building our house on the rock.
- Health - eating and cooking healthier more consistently. I truly believe we are killing ourselves with our diet. That is going to stop!
God is good and His love is perfect.

In a culinary context, zucchini is treated as a vegetable, which means it is usually cooked and presented as a savory dish or accompaniment. Botanically, however, the zucchini is an immature fruit, being the swollen ovary of the female zucchini flower.
Interesting. I don't like squash - but I love fried zucchini and zucchini bread. Go figure.
Zucchini Bread - by Aunt Jannie
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil

2 cups zucchini (peeled and grated)
