Our church had a special service for Justin yesterday. So much good music and so many uplifted prayers. He'll be deploying overseas sometime this year. I don't think they really have any idea when, but when he goes, he's going to be surrounded by prayers from so many people who love him very much. And just a thought. If you see someone in the military, give them a big thank you. They and their families sacrifice so much.
After church, I just came home and had a tomato sandwich. Actually one-and-a-half tomato sandwiches. I just wish the garden would bear year-round. I'm gonna miss those darn tomatoes when they're gone. I got a little bit of work done while Jeff was having a coaches meeting out by the pool.
My ankle where I fell down the stairs is bothering me A LOT. I haven't exactly been the smartest person in the world, though, so it's really my fault. When I dress up for work or church, I always wear some sort of a heel. Being only 5'1, the only flats I wear are flip flops or tennis shoes. Those don't work too well when I have to work. Ugh. I wish. Well, anyway, I think that the heels have made my ankle worse. I'm giving it a couple more days, but then I may have to have it seen about. I know from the last time I fell down the stairs and hurt my ankle that it could take A LONG time to get better. I have to work this afternoon, so I'm going to be tearing out my closet trying to find some shoes that won't hurt.
We had supper at Mom & Pop's last night. She made Sloppy Joes. Now, why is it if I tried to make Sloppy Joes they would taste like dog food? When she makes them, they taste like Filet Mignon. There's no justice in the world. All the kids like grape Kool-Aid, so of course, Mimi always has grape Kool-Aid. Last night as she was making a pitcher, Eli wanted to stir it up. And what a great job he did. Look at that smile. Even if it is soooo fake.
I had cleaned out a couple of makeup bags and gotten some things for Alayna. She was so happy and just thanked me and hugged me. Sorry for the lackluster pictures. I left my camera at home and was using the camera on my Blackberry.
Mimi's kitchen was torn apart when Crystal's actual birthday was, so she made her a belated birthday cake last night. Crystal's favorite, red velvet. And it was the bomb! Just like it always is.
Having no small kids around anymore, Mama didn't have any birthday candles. So we sang to her and she pretended to blow out the candles. I hope her wish comes true anyway.
After we all ate and chatted for a little while, the kids were DYING to go swimming. Thankfully, I live only about five minutes from my parents. Everyone loaded up and headed over to my house for a swim.
Cam's friend, Drew, has this cool phone that can be submerged in the water. Wow. Now that's an idea way past due, huh? So he made this video of Reid swimming underwater. It's my first attempt at loading a video onto my blog, so hopefully, it'll work okay. Only I couldn't figure out how to fix it where you don't have to turn your head to view. Sorry.
So that was my Sunday. Not much variation from the norm. I've learned that normal is good. Very, very good.
Till tomorrow. Happy Monday!
