I'm a Thief

It's true. I steal. You will probably find something from your blog on my blog at anytime in the future. I will try to give you the credit, but I make no guarantees. I've especially become addicted to Maggie's blog. It makes me wish I would have gotten to know her better in KY because I think I could talk to her for hours about politics and cooking and marriage (Maggie, if you have read this and remember a conversation 3 years ago at a scrapbooking night...I have read The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. And I LOVED it!!!) Anyway, I've been tempted to take all of her political articles on her blog just for my own little journal, which I'll probably still do...as well as one from Karianne's blog from a long time ago (the baby learning how to swim one. It was AWESOME!!!). Anyway, not to get all specific on everyone, but if you frequent my blog and see something familiar, I'M SORRY!!! I'm just a fan of yours, I guess!

You don't have to read...I'm just whining.

I feel so wipedout tired today. Jack and I have been staying up so chatty the past few nights, which I cherish and we need to do more often. But it is whooping my tooshie during the day. Today was one of those days that I wanted to leave the TV on and go back to bed, although I haven't done that, so I need that much credit. I had my "visiting teacher" come over today who is actually a good friend so we ended up, of course, just talking for almost three hours so that really helped me make it through the day. Then Emma had her group violin lessons this afternoon and she absolutely LOVES her teacher so that also helped. Her teacher is incredible. I love her! After every lesson Emma tells me how much she loves it. She's growing up so much. It makes me so happy and sad. I was pushing Jackson in the stroller on Saturday while she rode her bike and we have a neighbor down the street with six foot privacy walls around his whole house with the only opening when he opens his driveway gate. I had no idea he was coming but missed Emma by MAYBE 2 inches and I had to back up Jackson in the stroller so he didn't get hit. They waved at me like all was well and drove away. I don't think they had a clue they almost hit my little girl. Had she seen them and hesitated, they would have hit her hard. I was so grateful we had had family prayer a few minutes earlier. We're going karoaking tonight for FHE. That's always a good time. We don't go near as often as we used to. And I'm so tired today, that I don't want to go tonight, but Emma's friend is celebrating her birthday there tonight. I should be fun, and I'm sure I'll perk up when I get there. We'll see how perky I can get.
