Hi all!  I'm finally on my way to bed, but thought I'd stop and do a quick post first.

I just wanted to let all of you know that you most likely won't be hearing from me again this week.  It's the first week of school, and the first school year where I have two girls attending instead of one.  In some ways, this is easier...I only have one little one at home during the day now, (Yay!) which means that once we get into the swing of things, I'll have more time on my hands.  As always, though, the first week is full of the adjustments of getting used to a new schedule. :}

On top of that, I was crazy enough to decide to do a Yard Sale at my house this coming weekend with my brother and aunt.  I'm really excited to get rid of excess stuff and make a little money, but it's been a bit hectic trying to get ready for it (as anyone who has put on a yard sale will understand). 

Then, to make things even more interesting, our main breaker blew this past week.  Hubby is going to work on replacing it on Wednesday and Thursday, so I'll be staying at my mom's house with the girls for those two days (staying in a house with no swamp cooler during 90 something degree weather did NOT interest me). ;)  Meanwhile, my dryer and dishwasher are both non-functional until we get the problem fixed.  Oh yeah, and my alarm clock, too.  All three of those are rather crucial for a mom, especially during the first week of school.  It's been interesting.  

So, yeah, things are a bit crazy right now.  Through it all, though, the Lord is good.  He's teaching me a lot about patience and trust this week. :}  I'm hoping to have another post up by next week, once the chaos slows a bit.  Please bear with me as I try to keep my head above water! ;)
