7 Quick Takes Friday

Trying something new today! Enjoy!

Our house has been a hazard zone over the last week. First Alexa had the stomach flu, then 4 days later Jim came home from work sick. Sunday Jacob got it. Now 'm just waiting for my turn.

My boss (aka The Pastor at my church) has told me I need to take a vacation. I think in the 5 years I have worked for the church I've taken one vacation so I guess I'm due. I just feel so guilty when there is so much to do. Fr. R told me to get over that. So I guess I'm vacation planning. Any ideas!

Jacob and I have been enjoying a Smallville marathon over the last few days. It had been a while since we watched the series so it's been fun catching up. If you are not familiar with Smallville, it's a TV series about Superman before he became Superman.

Went to the hospital yesterday to give them what felt like a pint of blood. I couldn't believe how many tubes the tech took. Now just waiting to hear what the doctor says.

I saw an old friend yesterday and I wish we had more time together to talk. I used to watch her girls when I had my family daycare. It had been about 5 years since I'd seen her and it was just wonderful sharing pictures and stories about our kids. We were both so surprised how much our kids have changed. Since I now work with teens I asked her to invite the girls to our programs at church. I hope they decide to come, I would love to see them too.

Jacob's long awaited package has arrived today. He's Nike Olympic 7 shoes came just in time for the Olympics Opening Ceremony. I think this was the longest week ever for him. I will be posting the excitement regarding this shoe purchase in a few days.

Tonight is date night - Woo Hoo! Jacob will be going to a celebration at a friend's church and Alexa will be headed to bed a little early. Jim and I will be enjoying a yummy dinner together - Crockpot Ribs in BBQ sauce. Then we are going to watch the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics and play a game of Opening Ceremony Bingo I found on Tiny Me. To make the game more gown up we will wager something. It should be interesting and fun.

Until next time,


  1. Did you have any laundry detergent success?!

    1. Nope, someone threw away the milk container I was planning to use to store it. I'm 1/2 done with the milk we have so early next week I will be working on it.
