Heard around our house today:

Setting--D. walking repeatedly back and forth from one end of the house to the other carrying a floppy disk.
Me: What are you doing?
D: File transfers.

Setting--I'm giving the last stir to the the stir-fry for dinner.
Me: D., put the rice in a bowl.
D.: I can't. I'm applying to medical school.

Setting--A. getting his Harvard transcript in the mail.
A.: Look missa! I'm a straight up B+ student. Yes!

Setting--Cleaning up the kitchen at 7pm, listening to my new "stereo" system (speakers from my computer strung into the living room)
R. Mom, turn your music down. I can't sleep!

Someone to talk to

I feel like I need someone to talk to.

People are talking to me, but that's not what I mean. I mean I need someone to talk to.

Lord, are you listening?

I opened a gmail account tonight, just for the fun of it. If you are reading this message, send me an email to my new gmail account: linda.sim*** I need to see if it works. (You know what to substitute for the asterisks.)

Horses and roller coasters

She: I just got off the roller coaster, but I want to get back on.
Me: Don't be too agressive.
She: If you fall off a horse, you need to get back on.
Me: But don't be too agressive.
She: Just someone to talk to.
Me: How can you have a DTR if there isn't any R?

School bills

Ugh--I just did the math and siged the papers for the 10 months of payments for R's last year of college. Lord, you are going to have to provide for this somehow, since we don't have that much per month.

Church was good today. Nothing special, really, but my heart is drawn to God when I sing and participate in praising God with my fellow believers. I enjoyed hearing my family and friends sing around me. D. visited another church in town, then we picked him up for lunch at Taco Bell. He doesn't feel very connected at our church any more.
