Morning Musings....

It's Sunday finally. I love Sundays. I usually get up before everyone else and hop on the computer and check all my groups, email, and blogs that I read and try to catch up from the craziness that is my life every other day of the week. Usually I make coffee but today I am feeling lazy and didn't, though now I am thinking I should have....

George is singing away over in his cage by the front window. I love the sounds parakeets make, even when they get noisy and start squawking. George does have one annoying habit, however--he imitates the telephone! I can't tell you how often I or one of the girls has been sitting in here and we hear the phone ring and start looking for it only to realize it's George! LOL! Funny bird...

Ok--I'm back--with COFFEE! Mmmmm.... When I was up in Lincoln last weekend my gf blessed me with four boxes of Gevalia coffee. If you have never had this coffee, you really need to go online and order some. They have many different blends and roasts. You can get it ground or whole beans, decaf or regular. If you are a first time customer you can even get an awesome coffeepot! And if you like tea--oh man! They have an amazing assortment of teas... So yeah, you should check them out. http://gevalia.com You will thank me for it--really!

I had to go wake up the kids so they can get ready for church. The daughter's bf is playing drums for worship this morning and he likes us to be there for moral support. He is very good for his age, especially since he has never taken a lesson in his life.

My older daughter just hates him sometimes--not literally, but just the fact that whatever he decides to do he is good at almost right away! She is the opposite and it drives her crazy! "I want to be good at just ONE thing, Mom, ONE THING! And I can't even do that! AARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!" What she doesn't realize is that she has many talents but they aren't ones that draw attention to themselves. She has a kind heart, she is responsible and takes charge when she needs to, she is a hard worker and an excellent, dedicated student. She thinks of others before herself and is unselfish and caring. But these things don't make her GOOD at stuff, like sports or music or whatever and so she doesn't see that she is "good at anything" because of it. That's ok--I know what a treasure she is and that she is my diamond in the rough!

Well, I got a busy day ahead of me so I had better get started. Drank half a cup of coffee already, fed the kids, got one in the shower, two emptying the dishwasher so I can fill it back up, and now I have to do the girl's hair since I just had her throw it up in a pony tail last night after she washed it. Now I have to get it wet and condition it again and get some oils on it (she is biracial) or I won't be able to do a thing with it! So I had better get moving.

Sundays. I love them....
