~I was gunna make the title "Got my grill on" but I don't know what that means so I'll refrain. All I know is that it was a popular song during gymnastics season and my girls knew every word.. I hope that song's not TOO bad! =/
~TODAY is Erin's Birthday!!! Please link on over to her site and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Love ya, Erin!!!!
~So yeah, I realize that grilling isn't that hard.. but man, was I intimidated!!! Last night I was craving a grilled chicken salad. Without Darin here, cooking for myself definitely does not include the usual foods that I make for the both of us. (meat and potatoes all the way.. and of course a vegetable.. as my mom would say, "For healthy grandbabies!") But.. I did it. I grilled my chicken and guess what? It was GOOD!!! Darin's is much better, but hey, for my first time it really wasn't all that bad. Heap on the lettuce, cucs, carrots, onions, grape tomatoes and that oh so good grilled chicken and I had myself a one foot tall HEAPING salad!! I couldn't even eat it all. You know there's a lot of salad when Darcy can't eat it all. =)
~With D being gone, I've had some great alone time with JC. I have been feeling so overwhelmed lately. Work, my side business, church commitments, being Darin's wife commitments, my youth group girls small group, nursery duty once a month, my 20-something small group, gymanastics, the decision of being our church wedding coordinator, the decision of leading an exercise group at church on Thursday nights.. last night I realized that something has got to give. Have you all had that feeling before? And guess what.. I have NO clue what needs to give. I just want to do it all and help everyone out. And I can't. I have a problem with saying "no". I'm so thankful for quality quiet time this week to hear what God wants me to do. I think God's timing with Darin being away was perfect for JC and I to figure out which activities need to be a priority in my life. Ahh.. I'll keep you informed to what He leads me to do.
~This week has spawned some mega scrap time. Bailey has taken Darin's spot on the scrapbook room chair. At least he lets me tune the channel into HGTV and not sports. (I DO NOT COMPLAIN when Darin lets me scrapbook and wants to hang out with me in my room.. even though the channels are either on ESPN, ESPN classic or Fox Sports). I can deal if it means more scrap time.
~Annnnnnd.. blogger won't let me post my pages. Maybe I'll try later or post them tomorrow. Does blogger realize how annoying this is?
~Jett just came and visited me at work!! gosh I love that little boy. =) He flirted with all the women and banged on my keyboard for awhile and then jetted. HA!! Pun intended.. I'm such a dork...
~AND yesterday I realized that we get 2 days off for the 4th of July. Um, how did I miss this amazing detail? A 4 day weekend.. SO excited!!
~ Yeah, so bored-at-work Darcy makes the mistake of looking at the local online classifieds for puppies. There are beagle puppies ON THE WAY HOME FROM WORK!! And D still says no. We gotta wait until the next house. sigh. ON THE WAY HOME, people. It's killing me. Wrigly is WAITING for me to pick him up. =/
~ Okay, so I made this post kinda like one of my random posts.. but I didn't NAME it a random post.. does that mean that I'm not rambling?? yeah, we'll go with that. =)
Alrighty.. peace out. Have a great Wednesday.
