I am very excited. Perhaps I am being materialistic (*gasp* I know... Impossible!), but wow, I'm excited about getting my refurbished MacBook, which should be arriving next Wednesday. Yay! *dances*

In other news, we're working hard around the place, doing work like trimming bushes, working on the chicken shed roof, digging up yucca, getting the lawnmower up and working again, etc. It's hard, sweaty work, but really rewarding. And when you have the radio cranked up, even...dare I say it?...FUN! Plus it's a great way to get a tan if you've been slowly mildewing indoors all winter. :P

Another cool fact: My birthday is a week from this coming Monday. The laptop is kind of an early birthday present, except I'm paying for half of it right now... Yeah.

Peter is growing like a weed. He looks about seven months old, even though he just turned five months on the 9th. He's rolling around on the floor (and his changing table--hold on, everybody!), talking the ears off anyone in the general vicinity, and is just an adorable baby overall. None of the rest of us have been as sweet as him... Maybe having a second batch of kids isn't such a bad idea after all! ;) No, God has truly blessed us as a family.

God is not only blessing our family, but He is totally blessing me right now, both with material posessions (see laptop) and with incredible relationships with fellow humans. Have you ever felt SWAMPED with having lots of appointments during a week, in which you meet with Christian friends? It's amazing. He is so good!

Congratulations. I think a Macbook makes you officially cool. (That's just because I just got one ;-)

Blegh. Macs < PCs.

But I'm happy you're happy! :)

Yard work... something I've never liked, and gotten out of as much as I can. But it's fun to see the final results!

A week from Monday... I am remembering... I am remembering...

Me: I like it because of the results. PLUS, I can arm-wrestle with people, work out, and get a tan. :D Not that I'm vain or anything... :P
