So I almost got my car towed today. I guess I parked a little far from the curb due to the mongo snowdrifts and my being in somewhat of a hurry. There were cars parked on both sides of the road and one of the neighbors called! When I got out of church, the very congenial policeman and Kevin were chatting. We had driven separately since I had to go to a meeting after church and the girls (and Dada) needed to come home for rests/naps.
After my lunch meeting, I went to Target all by myself! I showed amazing restraint, only buying what was on my list (not even an extra apple made it into my cart, and we actually needed apples). I got the girls matching and utterly adorable dresses for Easter. I can’t wait!
The rest of the afternoon/evening was spent jumping into large piles of pillows, cozying up reading, enjoying our traditional Sunday night dinner of apples/popcorn/cheese/ and veggies with dip. After the bedtime rituals, I finished Teaching True Love to the Sex-at-13 Generation and delved further into The Complete Guide of Getting Started in Homeschooling.
I have to recommend buying Teaching True Love to any and every parent. It teaches about purity in a way I’ve never really experienced. It forces you to take a good hard look at what you believe and why. It makes you think about your relationships with God and your spouse differently. It provokes interesting and deep conversations with your co-parent.It is powerful. One needs to buy it for the application, the tasks recommended are life-changing and not short lived. They can’t be accomplished in a one time fix all session.
And I watched parts of the Oscars.
