Pic of the Day: New Member of the Family

Last week my washer died. She was faithful to the end and for eight years cleansed our grimy clothing. Trust me with a husband that runs a sawmill, I need a workhorse. We were sad for our loss, mostly because it was money we did not want to spend. However, I had been wanting a frontloading washer for a couple of years now and did not think I was going to get one. Lowe's had this exact model,minius the drawer on the bottom, for half of what it normally costs. Thank You God for Your provision! I don't think David and I have been as entertained as we were tonight. We just sat in front of it watching it start and stop. Wondering how in the world our clothes were going to come clean in that little bit of water. I guess I will just let Scarlet figure that out for me. Yes, I named the washer. Anything that helps me out as much as this washer is going to deserves a name. Edna was the name of the one who died. So, please, when you are finished reading this have a moment of silence for our dearly departed. Thanks.

Dreams Dashed, Hopes Crushed

Ok so I get the whole mystique about 3D movies. I understand that anything that can bring our most bizarre dreams more to life than they already are is a plus. Case in point Avatar. I have been waiting a while to see this movie ,some folklore says,
took 14 years to make, for a while. Now,the only problem with 3D for both me and my adorable husband is that it messes with our heads and gives us both headaches. I mean migraines.
We were so excited, I got all dolled up for our date night. I did look pretty cute if I do say so myself. We waltzed up to the theatre in the rain. Yes, just like Gene Kelly in Singin' In the Rain. We sauntered up to the ticket counter and asked if they had Avatar in a regular format, as most 3D shows do. You know one with 3D and one without. To our great disappointment, the ticket guy said, "No."
We walked away hopes dashed and dreams crushed! Or was it the other way. Anyway. We don't get to see Avatar! So David and I go to Blockbuster and see an acquaintance there, tell him our tragic story, and watch his disappointment for us register on his face ,because he knows what we are missing.I must confess that it did not help when I am relaying this story to Cari the next day and she looks at me and says, "that's too bad because it really was an awesome movie." Aaaaaghhh!
James Cameron, where is your humanity?!!!!! Think about us poor retched souls that cannot handle 3D movies next time you take 14 years to make an epic picture! Really!

Watoto Children's Choir!

Oh my goodness Kristi, you were so right! The Watoto Children's choir was one of the best things I have seen. I took both of the kids and my neice Gracie and drove to Comfort having no idea what was in store. It was so amazing! These children, who have seen so much pain and suffering, were worshiping God with all their hearts. It also happened to be beautiful. The best thing about the evening though was that my children walked away with a different view of the world. They loved it! They got to meet these precious children and recognized all of the many ways they are soooo blessed. Thanks for telling everyone about it Kristi. I loved it.
