five is my favorite number.
there are five people in my little reed family.
and it's the amount of time i am giving myself to write this post.
and the number of pictures today.
remember how much i need time alone?
well, i don't get any time alone now-a-days,
and God is really speaking to me about my ideas for what i need.
He is really stretching me to look for his help in places i haven't before.
after what seems like a solid two months straight with NO breaks from my kids,
i went out to lunch with my new friend.
yes, i am making a friend in hawaii.
she has teenage daughters who babysit,
which is (for me right now) the best quality for a friend to have.
she took me to a hole in the wall japanese place
then we went to ross and target
isn't that just. the. best?
i could just cry it was so needed.
we tried out a church on sunday and it was weird.
i mean church shopping is completely unknown to me.
but i think it went well and next sunday we are trying out another one.
so....one down, i guess?
i bought dye for my grey hair.
which is probably causing more grey.
i am really starting to count the days before we get to move into our house and get our stuff.
did you realize that we are still all living in a vacation rental with just the stuff from our suitcases?
things i miss most?
my bed, my printer, my sewing machine, ella's baby dolls (why didn't i pack those???), and....just about everything in my kitchen.
i realize now how spoiled i am...was....want to be again?
thanks for reading and always being so encouraging.
i had a really horrid day yesterday.
one of those really really bad ones where EVERYTHING goes wrong and you hurt yourself slamming something out of anger.
one of those ones where everything seems to be your husbands fault.
or hawaii's fault.
or stupid joe the shoes repair man's fault
(who apparently closes his shop on mondays, but i traveled 40 minutes into the middle of honolulu to pick up my husbands repaired shoes from him, and after parking in a huge parking garage and searching for his back ally store front for 20 minutes, found it out the hard way as it started to rain and i started to realize that i now can't find that huge dumb parking structure, so me and my three small children can just search around this city block for twenty more minutes as mommy starts to cry and pray we don't get mugged and the children start to panic and....did i mention it was raining? and that reedo couldn't pick them up because he had to go to the urgent care for a fever?)
thanks for being my friends and reading my run-on sentences
and putting up with numerous smelling and grammar errors, i'm sure.
i need the listening ear, and i am grateful.
