This week went by quickly! And I am not kidding on this point, yesterday night I thought it was Tuesday. I was shocked when my husband and our friends mentioned that tomorrow was Friday! Has anyone felt this way for this week, or is it just me?
Last night’s conversation with my husband was interesting…I had mentioned to him about how I told our friend that the extra room we have in our house was to be made into a excerise/guest bedroom/nursery and how she looked at me and whispered, “are you pregnant”. I told her no, but when I relayed the message and was telling him the story he looked upset. I asked why and you know what he tells me: “I was upset because if it was true, I was not the first to know but she was”.
It is just February and I have already read fifteen books. Which is wonderful for me, but this past week I have read at least four books. I know I am not as quick as my friend Em, but I am impressed that I am reading that much. Hopefully, once Lent begins I will read at the same pace I am reading at this moment, because for some odd reason I begin to slow down during Lent.
Including the increase of reading I have done, my increase of a fan club for my cooking has increased. My husband and our friend say that I have a fan club because of my lunches I make for the two of them. It is quite humorous that I use to never get attention for something I had done, but now I am. I am a little embarrassed by it, but grateful for the compliments, it helps when you feel there are some that you know that are never pleased with what you do.
Yesterday, I was quite happy with something. For almost two hours I spoke on the phone with my great-grandmother and I must tell you all, the readers that speaking to her was wonderful. I have told her over and over again she need not be worried of calling me. (She fears if she calls it will be bothersome and that right there proves to me where my great-uncle got that line from.)
I am upset because of a few things going on, and even vented to my husband it. Poor husband, he so wants to fix the problems because that is who is. There is not much we can do, but pray and keep up with calling.
In just five days until the beginning of Lent. It is still shocking how quickly Ash Wednesday will be here this coming Wednesday. I am hoping my husband remembers to contact the Chaplain so to figure out about the Ash Wednesday Masses here on Base, or will there not be Masses because the priest travels so much. (He runs a few parishes, I was told)
Like I have mentioned in a few postings, I will write an entry on what I will be doing for this Lenten Season.
Just downloaded a few new songs from Josh Groban and my favorite song to listen to is “Smile”. It is one of those songs that even when the bad days appear you can pick yourself, sing the tune, and maybe even dance around. I know I am weird.
