Out of Order

I'm so sorry that I've been almost completely absent for the last couple of weeks. My computer went AWOL so (except for my phone) I've been in involuntary internet isolation! *gasp*

I know my emails and reader list are stacking up. Forgive me if you've been waiting for a response.

Life has been exciting as usual. I'll fill you in on the flood and living without a kitchen and dining room later. Remember the whole five kids and homeschooling thing? Yeah, it's been a little interesting lately... I'm practicing patience and flexibility!

Who's looking forward to a big home renovation job over the holidays??? Show of hands? Oh yeah, it's me! Actually I'm very excited about it even though the timing could be a little better.

Hopefully, my trusty computer will be back on duty tomorrow. Until then!

"Come unto Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Matthew 11.28-30

WOW. I was gonna email you and see if you'd fallen off the face of the planet... but it sounds like you were washed away in a flood. Sounds horrible, though maybe not as horrible as being off-line for so long! What torture!!!

missed hearing form you. Glad you will be back soon.

Yikes! Sounds like you guys have had quite an adventure! Can't wait to see the 'new' home.

Oh Laurie, how horrible!! I know of someone that can really help you out wonderfully. Your MP would totally hate me (as most husbands do after I meet with their wives) but here are the facts:

1. I love California more than you know!

2. I design the most spectacular kitchens!

3. Most of all - I would love to meet you finally!

See how simple!?!

Seriously - it'll be fine, a pain in the butt of course but fine! :(

Welcome back Laurie! I missed you! Sorry to hear of your flood... but I'm all for the house updates. Wanted to let you know we passed court, because God is good!! Leaving on Nov 8th (pretty sure, still waiting for confirmation from travel agent).

Laurie, I am so happy to see you back!! I'm so sorry about the "bumps in the road" lately - we've had a few of those ourselves!! I so appreciated the verse from Matthew you posted. That really ministered to my heart tonight. :)
