Busy doing nothing–living life.
Friday night I finished up the MOPS craft with some friend’s (Thank goodness for their help, or I still wouldn’t be done!) It was a great chatty night covering topics like underwear and Oprah, boys and babies, diapers and dyslexia, adoption and arrests . Free conversation like this is why boys aren’t invited.
Saturday I spent the morning at the mall selling coupons for a MOPS fundraiser. It turned out that I was there at the wrong time, but yet it worked out perfectly (and another girl was there on the wrong day, at the wrong time.) It was totally God orchestrated though to work out like it did even though I was completely scatterbrained about the whole thing.
When my friend watched me in conversation with a couple at the mall, I was amused at her comment, “You not only sell them, you’ll also get to know their whole family and invite them home for dinner. “
It was even funnier when my sister and I were talking later. She was telling me about a speaker on the four main personality types she had just heard at her MOPS group. She was reading them to my mom the day before, and when she read the description of sanguine, my mom interrupted to say, “I have never heard a truer more accurate description of your sister!”
(This link takes you to a fairly decent personality test so you can see what your temperament is. If you don’t want to take the test, just look on the right hand side for the definitions of the four basic temperaments)
I already knew this was my ‘label’, but I’m interested to find out more about why it came up twice in one day. Usually when that happens, God is telling me something. I’ll let you know when I figure it out.
Later that afternoon, Aviana was in rare form, and had several tantrums. The girls seemed to both be so tired that I gave them baths and put them to bed around 6:30 pm!
Kevin and I watched a movie and immensely enjoyed each other’s company.
Today we were at church by 8:00 a.m. Kevin worked tech and I in the toddler room. I greeted for the second service and then went to church. It was all about selfishness; which is one of the areas I constantly seem to struggle with. Am I being selfish or just setting healthy boundaries? I never know.
We stopped and bought a new heater for the kitchen, which is the coldest room in our home. This one is purported to heat evenly floor to ceiling, and be really inexpensive to run. I’m excited to try it out.
I snuck in a quick nap, and made yummy Pumpkin Spice Cake then we all four snuggled on the couch upstairs with some hot cocoa and watched part of Matilda. We dropped off the girls at Joyce’s and went to our home group.
While posting the link to that recipe, I just noticed I completely forgot the Miracle Whip and only put in two eggs. That would explain why it looked nothing like the picture. I’ll blame it on Brielle distracting me. Still though, everyone at home group wanted to know who made the cake and raved about how good it was.
I’m just shaking my head at myself right now, and chucking wryly.
