if you email and i’ve given it to you, please be respectful and do not pass it along assuming i’m comfortable with that person. thank you! 

the post before this is very personal and dear to my heart. i am fine with any and all of my friends and family reading it – just not fine with just anyone reading without me knowing… (since my blog is public i don’t get to see who all reads it! my stats are very high for only having this blog for 6+ months…) so feel free to just shoot me a quick email and i’ll respond right back with a password, if i know ya! : ) thanks for understanding!

i’m in denial that this weekend is lizzie’s first birthday party. next sunday is her actual birthday but gma penny will be out of town so we are having the brummer/beeler party this sunday. the house is a mess with toys everywhere, two loads of laundry are in baskets either needing folded or are folded just need put away, another load is in the wash needing to go in the dryer, the house needs vacuumed and the floors washed, the dishwasher unloaded and the dirty dishes put in it, the bathroom needs cleaned and i want to wipe down all surfaces of the kitchen. not mention decorate the tables (looks like our party is gonna be indoors, it changed from being a sunny beautiful weekend to a rainy one – how depressing for me!). i need to make the salad, make potatoes for the family reunion tomorrow, make the cupcakes… i don’t want help – i want to do it all, i just need to get past this huge molehill in my way i named DENIAL!

…decorating the tables is the only thing that sounds fun to me. i’m going to run up to jamasa’s and see if i can’t find some white daisies and some kind of pink flower. i’m going to arrange them myself. so far the only thing i’m excited about is the present that she’s getting from gma penny (i’ll post pics, i know liz is gonna LOVE it!) and these silly flowers! i love buying flowers! i hope she has lots to choose from! 

anyway – i’m avoiding what really needs done around here by blogging. i better hop to it. i have tons to do for church today and i’m meeting a group of ladies here in lancaster this afternoon. i was hoping that would motivate me to get something done – but so far, no such luck chuck! i’m in such a slump – what do i do to get out of it?!

my daughter has a deep love for any and every kind of laundry! it really is a hoot. 

this morning i started opening the dryer door and her radar went off and she came a runnin (crawlin). she pulled herself up to the open dryer and started pulling the diapers and soakers out and dropping them in the basket – i sneak around the corner to get the camera, pop back in and she’s not doing it anymore! aaaah! but i did get a lil but i missed her focused on the task at hand. the look on her face was so intense! she was workin!

a LOVE this

…worth far more than rubies. (proverbs 31:10) 

am i the woman i want lizzie to become? are my personal standards for myself as high as my standards for lizzie faith? and if not, WHY aren’t they!?

…a wife of noble character who can find?

i have an image in my head of the kind of young lady and woman i want her to become. you may call it expectations… i know that she is learning so much from me on a daily basis. i’m her main influence! it’s just time for me to really swallow this and work on it daily! 

…a woman of noble character. (ruth 3:11b)

i absolutely love this!

this is what so many people have said to me over the years – i think it’s hilarious! so far no one has come to me with any other reason than this of why not to homeschool. homeschool-comic
