Friday, February 01, 2008 third home!

Colorado now feels like my third home! Nashville...of course being my second..!:) I've been here for 11 days now and I decided yesterday,(which I was supposed to fly out last night...) to stay two days longer to help my friend Schlyce out with some things and do a little nannying:) I totally feel like a mommy right, cleaning, grocery shopping, running errands, babysitting, changing diapers, giving baths, and walking the dog! Thankfully I don't have my internet on my laptop to distract me! :) I have always LOVED cooking...but once my parents kept having more and more kids it would take almost all day to make something decent for 9 people so I pretty much stopped doing it...but it's kinda fun doing it for only 3 and a baby! Especially the dish part...where I'm used to having 2 dishwasher loads of dishes per they just run it once per day! It's so foreign to me! lol!

I am SO glad I decided to stay a little longer too because in this whole time of serving and putting all of my stuff aside God still was looking after me and honoring the time I was giving!! Last night Schlyce and I had THE best talk/dreaming/vision inspiring conversation and stayed up super late just talking about tons of different ideas and what God had planned for my life! I could hardly fall asleep last night...God has always used her to really speak into my life at JUST the perfect time! So I was so excited that He was faithful in continuing to use her as a REAL blessing and counsel!
I'll be home tomorrow night and will be able to catch up with everything then!! I miss everyone! It's weird being so disconnected yet so refreshing at the same time! I love you all! :)

Wow, that sounds like you've had some incredible times! I'm sure your family will be glad to have you back home. Hope you have a safe trip back to Chicago!

Fun times!
If I could live anywhere it would be here (with family) Nashville or Colorado! I love both of those states/areas!

i know what u mean about feeling like a mommy sometimes when my parents leave town i have to clean, cook and take out the trash and take care of my dog....
even having 2 older sis and 1 older bro is no help b/c if i don't do it they won't
