We didn't. It rained all day so we spent the day curled up on the couch watching Gulliver's Travels and eating pot roast. That was our fancy Easter dinner....pot roast and gravy with steamed rice. It was all kinds of awesome. Who needs fancy ham and trimmings when you can have warm goodness that puts everyone to sleep? (I did miss the promised lemon meringue pie from my friend's house, though. I'm trying to talk her into bringing me a
I keep praying about baby names, and that if God has a preference, He'll let me know. I keep coming back to this kind of offbeat (even for me) name. It stalks me. I did a google search for a saint connection. There isn't one.....yet. There's a person under review with this quirky name and I'm kinda liking what I read about him/her. Of course it could just be God screwing with me again....He does that, you know. Do I even need to say Horatio? I didn't think so. Strange name...kinda weird...my husband doesn't really like it....I didn't either, but I'm warming to it.......maybe the baby will be the other sex and we'll just laugh about this one too...
We're showing the house tonight and I don't want to. We decided to lease it. I talked to a property management company. I was relieved to be done selling it. Then they set up a showing appointment. Can they just buy it? I'm furiously cleaning the mess from a rained-in weekend, and I'd like it to pay off for me. That would be nice. Then we could take our oddly named children and move and not look back.
Lent Prayer buddies....I had the great pleasure of praying for Beth from I Dreamed a Dream. It was a blog I'd never read before. I kinda like that. I like getting to know new people and learning all about them. She has been struggling with infertility for a while now. She killed me with he comments of "Are you there prayer buddy?" I wanted to say "I'm here! I'm praying!" It's been a lesson in silence, patience and prayer for me. I took her with me to daily Mass until I was too ill to go, and then I offered it all up for her. I've also promised to keep offering it up and praying for her until we move at the end of May. Go on over there and say Hello.
