Housewives 101

I survived VBS!!!!!!

Yes, I am still among the living. Hope everyone had a great time at VBS!! To all the parents I loved working with your children. Thank you for letting me be apart of their lives.

Well, I am really writing tonight so I can get motivated to get some tasks completed this week.
I would like to complete all laundry, clean bathroom, clean kitchen, clean my closet. Just get organized!!! I really feel I can't get anything done and I have no excuses. No children, only one class, and nothing but TIME. I know this may sound dumb but does anyone just have quick tips how to keep the house clean. I just can't motivate myself. WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME!!!!

Girls make me a Housewife!!!

I know I use to think you guys were crazy to be housewives but you guys make it look so easy.
I don't know if I can do it. I love staying home because I can sleep til 10:00am but that's not good either. I need a system!! I wish I could say I could look at it like a job but there NO money.
Oh!! Well I can't even believe I'm posting this about my house cleaning skills. If this is what it takes, I need the butt kicking anyway.

Maybe I need a chore chart like Maddie and Ella???

I know I need to stop whining and buck up and get the job done.

You guys are the best, thank you for setting a great example for me.

His Flower

I can't even begin to explain what a wonderful night Kevin & I had at his grandparent's house.
We really were going to stay home tonight and do nothing. Well Kevin ask me if I want to go see his grandparents. We had a nice ride in the country. We get to Kevin's grandparent' house and met pawpaw in the driveway. We all took advanage of the nice cool night and spent time outside. (I am not one for outside for a long period of time) (To many bugs) While we were enjoying our icecream, Mama Jane wanted to go work in the garden.

Ok... Let me stop and tell a little about this woman. Okay she is shorter than me (but not Beth Pullium short) skinny and can run circles around me. The woman is ready for anything. She tried to give me some extra ice cream tubs she was saving. She has enough plasic bags to resale to Walmart and make some $$$. Okay I'll sum her up, She throws NOTHING away.

Okay back to the garden. So Pawpaw and I took some chairs by the garden and watched Kevin and Mama Jane work in the garden. They had everything in this garden such as: Tomatos, corn, okra, peppers, squash, radishes, and LOOSE LEAF LETTUCE. Who would have thought to grow their own lettuce. That was amazing to me, tomatos I understand but lettuce. Well as the night went on we talked, laughed, and cut-up.

It got to be about 8:30p.m. and Mama Jane wanted me to come watch a flower. Yes I said WATCH A FLOWER. She kept telling me the whole night isn't God great with all he can create. I agreed with her but really didn't get what she was saying until 9:00 tonight.

I have never seen anything like this in my life. Kevin and I were so amazed how God can do the things that he does. Mama Jane brought us over to this plant and told us to watch it and it will start to bloom any minute. (Mama Jane doesn't drink but I thought she started) God showed up tonight and the flowers bloomed while we watched. It was beautiful!!! These pale yellow blooms that had been hiding from the sun all day and came out to worship God tonight.

As I watched these flowers POP open, I thought wow is that what we look like as Christians. I fresh, new bloom ready to worship Him. It sadded me to think I am not like this everyday. I sleep until noon and throw myself pitty parties. I think I'm alone but I'm not God is right here wanting me to talk to Him. But then I thought wait, about 7:30 or 8:00p.m. Mama Jane started to pick off the old and wilted blooms off of the plant. So the new ones would have room to spread out. God does that for us!! We bloom then we have to die to ourselves for Him. Then He picks off the old and wilted blooms so we can have room to start all over and serve Him. Guys you should see these flowers it was like a choir singing a song. They all knew the song and sang their parts.

It is so neat to see what all God has created and how it works.
You all my husband and how funny he is or tries to be but he said "That is amazing and that is the only flower I know that can tell time." But Kevin knows God made those flowers to open at 9:00p.m.

So let Him pick off your old blooms. So you can show Him your new ones!!
Remember we are His FLOWERS!!!

I Love You Guys,

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever."

Ephesians 4:24
24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

So What are you wearing?

Ok!! I have to tell you what happen this morning to me. I called my husband and ask him a question about our dog (Hank). I thought he was sick but he is fine. I guess I made something out of nothing.

Kevin then preceeded to ask me a question. He ask me not to take it the wrong way. "Honey, do you want a bag of thongs." Yes!!! you read it right!! A BAG OF THONGS!!! For all the ladies that know me I am very private about this issue. After he ask me the question in the back of my mind I was thinking, What woman would bring her used underwear into work and try to get rid of them. I must say I was shocked that even Kevin would ask me. All that came out of my mouth was Excuse me? He said "Lacey I have a huge box of brand new thongs that came in today with my flooring load." I just died laughing!!! He was so serious!! Any way!! When your husband buys you underwear ask him where he got them.

So what are you wearing??
