*My kids have often heard me say, when I feel neglected or left out, "What am I? Chopped liver?" Yesterday I asked Amanda to help me in the kitchen while Abby (who is normally my right-hand-man in the kitchen) looked so dejected and said, "I'm a pork chop!"
*I woke up this a.m. at 7:00 a.m., rolled over, grabbed my book and read for an hour. I LOVE Saturday mornings!
*Remember the lady Rosa who visits me with her grandson Tiago? Last time she wanted me to write a letter to the orphanage where she wanted to leave him so he would not be adopted and she could return for him after a few years. Well, she came back yesterday, with Tiago (who is growing and is SO big!). She did not leave him at the orphanage and I think she has been lying to me. So disappointing. I hate it when I am a sucker. Tiago is innocent even if his grandmother is not truthful.
*My husband has been gone 18 days and is due home day after tomorrow. I am beyond ready for him to get home.
*We are looking forward to hosting several families in our home for a big Thanksgiving meal. I'm praying for a cloudy, cool day to cook and bake.
*Does anyone wonder where October went? Seriously, it feels like September was just last week!
*OK it's almost midnight so I should go to bed now.
