Stats Suck Sunday

It's Sunday & I haven't done a SSS in a while. Last Sunday I was at my daughter's graduation from college in case you missed my MONDAY post. This Sunday? Cool & rain clouds, but no rain in this part of town.
  • Went to see "Star Trek" yesterday. Thought it was pretty good. They did such a great job with the make-up, etc. It was kind of eerie seeing the characters so young. Does that make me old?
  • Amanda started her new job. So far, so good. Sleeping on a friend's couch until the friend gets moved out, then she can sleep in a bed again! And then moving some stuff out of storage in Waco & getting it to Austin.
  • Husband lost job on Tuesday. Kind of at a loss. Life sucks sometimes.
  • Back to a year ago when we were looking at leaving Amarillo for work. 20 years worth of closets to clean out.
  • I really hate garage sales. Going to them or having them.
  • Amanda needs to come clean out her own closet & dressers. Talk about a pack rat! If she hasn't needed any of it in 4 years away....
  • Hubby tries to make fun of my lack of enthusiasm, but the garage & attic are FULL of his stuff, projects, and trains he had in the 50's. (yes, 1950).
  • I have great friends I have never even met. You know who you are. You give me strength when I can't seem to feel it. You remind Who is in control. (it's not me, although I want it that way most of the time). You listen when I'm cranky. You cry with me, even though we are miles apart. Thank-you.
  • I thank God for Brody. He brought so many of us together. At first for music. But, eventually for fellowship. From "sea to shining sea" we continue our lives, but include these new friends in our daily life.
  • Guess I'm sounding a little reflective & sentimental today. Think I'll curl up & read a book I got from the library.
It is a good day. I will name 5 things that bring me joy today. 1) God 2) Great husband 3) The roof over my head 4) a happy daughter 5) New friends.

You encourage me all the time, but I don't feel like I'm very good at reciprocating. I have had one garage sale in my life. Never again. I'd rather give the stuff away. I'm glad things are working out for Amanda at her new job. Praying doors open for both you and your husband to do what you love to do!
