So I've been home for almost a week. I flew by myself to Alabama to visit my Grandma that I haven't sen in 5 1/2 years. The trip went very well. My Grandma is 85 years old and in fairly good health excepting a leg that hurts from a fall-in the hospital none-the-less. We watched the news. Unfortunately I got there around the time Obama called a reporter sweetie so I had to hear about that for three days. We ate out. We went to church but that wasn't the best experience. The people at the church were nice (except that they didn't know my Grandma was still in town. Don't you usually check?) but the sermon was 20 minutes long, all that was said was to go spread the good news but they didn't tell you what it was-Christ was called our redeemer but there was no mention of what he did-and it was delivered by a woman. Don't get me wrong. Women are great, but they are not supposed to teach men-"I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man..." 1 Timothy 2:12. And there's more to the verse, but this was the main part I was looking for.
Eric did great with the girls. ClaireBeth made it to school. Vee doesn't have a diaper rash. Ziggy played ponies with Daddy all week. Everyone had a great time! The laundry was all clean when I got home, though sitting on the couch. Everything was picked up. The counters were fairly clear. The house smelled good and was vacuumed. Our room was immaculate. I think I might just go somewhere without them again, it worked so well this time.
My mom got married on the 24th. Her husband Roger is a good guy who will take care of her and might actually deal with her instead of putting up with her until he can't anymore. Or at least I'm hoping. She can be difficult to deal with sometimes. The wedding was nice and simple-I was the matron of honor-and the reception low key but sweet. And most importantly IT'S OVER. YEA!! She's someone else's and we told him no returns. Just kidding! So here's praying and hoping for a long, happy, healthy marriage.
