Welcome, welcome! I'm running late today because I [gasp] slept in! Last night at 10pm I took a half dose of a nighttime allergy medicine. It gave me 10 hours of sleep and today I feel like a new woman. The down side was that was the last nighttime allergy pill in the house, so I will need to go buy more today. I am grateful for the change of seasons, but the pollen and allergies are not welcome here!
This has been a great week over at Home Sanctuary! If you haven't checked out Rachel Anne's site yet, why not today? Each weekday, we are given a "small thing" to do to transform our homes into sanctuaries. That should be reward enough, but she assigns point values to each task and has prizes each month! I have been able to keep up with each task this month. We're half-way to the end, so here's hoping I stay on track.
My 15 and 17yo daughters both finished track this week, not placing high enough to move on after the Area meet. Here is a poor quality video of 17yo pole vaulting (she's the speck that flings herself over the pole on the left side of the screen):
She hopes to vault in college next year, too. I have tremendous admiration for my daughter who started high school and just thought pole vaulting looked fun. She's not the team's best vaulter, but she is certainly the one who tries the hardest to improve week after week. 15yo ran the 3200 meter (2 miles) with a respectable time of 12:32 - not her PR, but not a bad time to end the season on. This weekend is prom and these same 15 and 17yo girls will be going. The other 15yo is going to a friend's for a sleepover.
Have a blessed weekend!
Praying today for: Family of C. (committed suicide last night); N. (recovering from surgery).
