Minutes – May 21

::faithful

Praying for

  • friends – who still need permanent work
  • young friends – preparing to step out of their parents’ homes and head off to college
  • The Architect – he has his first job interview ever this afternoon
Grateful for
  • the safety of my parents, sister and nephews who live in Moore, Oklahoma

::healthy

Sleep continues to be a priority.  I can feel my stress levels dropping as my first day at the new job approaches. I’m so excited!

::pondering

Thinking about being a woman in a [still] male-dominated workplace, and the role that my faith plays there and how it influences the way I manage and lead. Reading the writing of Mary Wallace over at the Working Catholic Mom.

::creative

(Repeat) FINALLY selecting the paint color for the house trim.  I hereby announce to the world that I WILL slap those sample colors onto garage panels and pick one before this week is over.  Please hold me accountable if I don’t announce a selection by NEXT Monday.  In my own defense, it rained on the one free afternoon I had to slap paint. 

::delicious

  • Chicken Enchiladas
  • Shrimp Tacos with Bladk Beans
  • Eighth Grade Dinner with DirtBike
  • Beef Kabobs, Grilled Corn, Berries
  • Dirty Rice and Green Beans
  • BLTs
  • Hot Dogs, Baked Beans and Tossed Salad

::fun

GRADUATION Week for DirtBike!  No, not high school – eighth grade.  It’s a big deal, as he and his friends have been together in school since they were in preschool. It’s our last year at St. Andrew Catholic School – we’ve been there for eighteen years. EIGHTEEN Years!

::looking ahead

Tomorrow is the eighth grade picnic at a local retreat/ranch.  I’m chaperoning, and this may or may not involve a turn on a zip line. And a round of paintball. 

New Glasses!  AND sunglasses!!  I haven’t been updated in several years.  I’m looking forward to some more stylish frames and stronger bifocals.

Linking up at Suscipio – come join us!

 Record the Minutes.  Keep the Faith.

  1. Good to hear your family is safe! My prayers are with Moore, Ok.

    Congrats to the 8th grade graduate! That is a big deal!
    Zip line? Sounds like fun! You can show all the kiddos how it’s done! 😉

    And I will check back to make sure the paint has been selected! 🙂

    Have a great week!

  2. Oh girl, I am so sorry to hear you have family in Moore. But so thankful they are ok. If there is anything I can do, please call on me. I am near to you, so I am happy to help if I can.
    What an exciting time for DirtBike.
    And for you! A New Job? WOOHOO I miss working sometimes… well, at an office, I should say!
    I just got upgraded glasses that transition to sunglasses. It had been five years. I can see. And apparently if Mr. Magoo needs a wife… I’m his gal! ha!!

    Oh yes, and PICK YOUR COLOR! We’re watching…

    Blessings,
    Emily
