Wanna know a secret?
I abandoned my family…husband, kids and all!!!
I did! I really did! Now don’t you judge me…you know you wanna do it too!!
My friend did too.
We ran away!
We told them we would write if we found work.
This was our first stop. Anyone can work at Goodwill…right?
We worked alright.
We worked r.e.a.l. hard at spending….we spent $104.00 and and then asked if we could GO TO WORK to pay it all off….
lifted bought all these adorable, can’t live without, fashionable clothes :
We found a 50’s outfit for the chicken little who is going to a 50’s church social. Remember those plaids?
Goodwill didn’t know what hit it!
Two bargain starved runaways!
Goodwill will soon recover from our
shoplifting err…bargain hunting and we will hopefully never recover!
It was a lovely beginning to a giddy girlie weekend.
Giddiness would be remiss without painted toes, colored socks, and of course
Who can resist peanut M&M’s? You can not! You know you want some!
Once we got all our giddiness out; we studied.
Really we did…
Stephen Covey and the & Habits of Highly Effective People.
We listened to his CD’s, journal-ed (my new word) our insights, and realized that we fall VERY short of being effective communicators! In some ways we were doing great…but in others…sheesh!!!
We decided that E.V.E.R.Y PARENT ON THE PLANET should have to listen and learn these 7 habits before having kids and even before getting married.
WOW!! How enlightening. We made a chart to put on our fridge, office wall, school wall, mirrors, dogs, and maybe even one for each kid to wear on their chest! It’s a snap shot of the 7 Habits.
We shall become effective communicators…I promise!
After all the brain and heart work we took a walk on the
Staying at the Cottage…thanks Robert and Christine!
Lived among the animals…and no they weren’t our kids!
Enjoyed beautiful sunsets.
Wrestled in prayer until we could hear from the Father and worshipped until we wept.
And just plain ‘ole loved bein’ girls.
How can I describe this weekend?
Refreshing, rewarding, intimate, giddy, deep, and full.
