Miscellany Monday

So, in honor of my random mood, I'm hopping on board with some blogger friends and writing 5 miscellaneous tidbits for Monday:

1) Mondays are totally random in our house anyway. As a pastor's wife with three little girls, it takes about 24 hours to recover from Sunday (our not-so-day-of-rest). This morning, for instance, we shipped off my in-laws back to Ohio after a 10 day visit (more on that later), I spent half an hour playing Kung Fu Barbie, Monsters and Aliens is playing in the background, and we are on our way to the library for pre-school story hour. Later we will have a t-ball game, do our nails, and jump on the trampoline.

2) My older two girls have just dismantled the bed behind me and are sliding down the mattress into the closet. Great fun. It's amazing the stuff I will let happen in order to get a few minutes to blog!!

3) I don't mind washing and drying, but I hate to fold and put away laundry. Whenever I get it all out to sort and fold, I inevitably get company. Lots of it. Every time. Recently on laundry day, 5 random people stopped by unannounced, and two of them wound up staying for a meal. I'm thinking that if we all stopped wearing clothes around the house, it might help with both the laundry problem and the unannounced visitor dilemma. :)

4) It's funny how we all see the world from our own perspectives. When drawing pictures the other day, every person in my diva 5-year old's family was wearing a tiara. My 3-year old insisted that each person in her family have curly hair. She says, "because God made my hair like this {she makes a funny face and squeezes her hair really tight}."

5) For dinner last night, we had about 20 people from church over to our house. We had lasagna, garlic bread, salad, apple pie, and cheesecake. I absolutely love to cook, but hate to clean up. So I got smart and started inviting people over who hate to cook but love to clean up. Now my kitchen is spotless and I have leftovers for tonight!!!


  1. I also posted about hating laundry in may randoms today. Isn't it the worst?! That last pic is too cute. I enjoyed your blog today. Blessings!

  2. thanks for joining in! it's so great to have you!!!

    i can completely relate to your #1... my hubby is the worship leader and with 6 services/sunday it is certainly no day of rest! mondays are recoup days for sure!

    laundry... it's so never ending. i want just for one day to have all of the clothes clean. but i guess that would mean we'd all be naked. oh well.

    your kids are adorable!!! so great to "meet" you!
