Back to the gym & other thoughts.

Hello everyone! I’m ready for another week.  How about you?  We had a fabulous weekend.  Not much went on…but it was great.  Tim had to focus on his school most of the weekend.  He has until tomorrow to get his last assignment done.

I have realized something since Tim has started Bible school:

We are going to need a second laptop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Due to the fact that last week was finals for him….he was on the laptop all the time working.  I was like a lost puppy without the computer! ha!  I normally have the freedom to blog, surf the web….whatever I please.  I will be honest.  It was tough for me!  Plus, next semester he will be taking even more classes….so I will N E V E R get to have laptop time! That just can’t happen people! I know you sympathize with me! :)

Actually, I did use some of that “free” time to clean and read.  So I was trying to be a good wife and be productive!

In your family do you have just one computer?  How do you work it?

So, Mr. Tim surprised me with these Under Armour socks!

At first I was mad (being the tight wad that I am!) He wouldn’t tell me how much they were.  haha!  I felt bad having “expensive” socks.  But then I put them on…..and boy are they amazing!  I think they are going to help my workouts….as silly as that may sound.  My husband is very sweet to do those little things like that.  I really need to be better at “loosening up” a little bit!  If you are the tight wad of your family….you know what I mean!

Speaking of my workouts:  I am going to my crosstraining class tonight!!!!!!  I am scared.  It has been several weeks since I have been to crosstraining class.  It kills!  Though I am excited to try out my new socks. :) 

Oh boy did we have a good Sunday at church yesterday!  wow!  It was such a great day.  Our pastor spoke about losing your cutting edge.  Meaning that sometimes in our life and our work we do at our churches…..we can loose our cutting edge.  We don’t have God’s power on us because we are not daily building our relationship with Him.  It hit home to me.  Tim and I have worked in the youth ministry for so long….sometimes I get so focused on the teens and wanting to see them grow spiritually….I forget about myself.  I forget that the most important part of my ministry with the teens is to make sure that I am personally “in tune” with the Lord.  When I am personally walking close to the Lord….it spills over to the teens.  It was for sure a challenging message.  I never ever want to loose my cutting edge or God’s power on Tim and I’s ministry. 

Well, I know I’m a little wordy today!  I haven’t blogged in awhile….so it’s all coming out!  ha! 

I hope everyone is having a fabulous day so far!!!!!

May you have a blessed week friends! :)

Hugs!

You should get a little netbook! They are a lot cheaper and are just as good as a laptop-except smaller. We just got one last month and I can fit it in my purse :)
Good socks really do make all the difference!!! It's the worst when you have to pull them up or they cut off circulation or whatever else they might do!

Love those socks! We only have one laptop at home but we both have internet access all day at work so we try to make the best of it. However, there have certainly been times when I wish we had 2 computers at home!

Oh yes, I could never share a laptop with my husband :) He's an only child and I'm the oldest so we don't share well :) Ha!

We have two computers here. It is definitely necessary! I would be soo frustrated most of the time if we had just one! haha
That was sweet of your husband to get you those socks! I am the tight wad in my family so I understand what you mean though!
Thanks for sharing what you heard in church. I've been thinking how I haven't been good with daily building my relationship with God like I should. I used to have a routine and I've really broken away from that. It is time to turn things around.

I hope you have a blessed week!

I am hosting my first giveaway today... you might want to enter!

Good socks are a necessity. ;-) Nothing is worse than having them slip down under your heel over and over. ha!
