Words to live by. No. I

Did you watch Oprah’s Farewell show?

I thought it was unbelievable. I am sad I missed out on so much! I was too young to care during the ’90′s, and anything after that, Spongebob, Arthur and the like have ruled 4:00 television.

She showed a few clips from her old shows, and this is one that really hit me.

"Be responsible for the energy you bring to this room."

Or this home.

Or this restaurant.

Or this grocery store.

Or this church.

Or this life.

Be conscientious about the way you treat, act and respond towards people.

Wow.

Amen.

Can I have a break?

Small children don’t like to clean their rooms.

C. and Q. have been assigned by mom (the eBayQueen) and Dad (TVMan,) to clean their room.

Mom and Dad have left me to watch the boys while they set up staging for Youth Sunday at church tomorrow.

Do you know what I’ve heard

Over.

And over.

And over again?

Every three to five minutes?

"Rachel? Can I have a break?"

No.

No.

No.

NO!

GO UPSTAIRS AND CLEAN!!

"Rachel? Can you call the dog?"

ELVIS!!

Who? Me?

(Elvis is the newest addition to the family. More to come on him and his story another time.)

ELVIS DROP THE SOCK/BABY TOY (more to come on him another time too)/CAT!!!…. okay, he hasn’t grabbed the cat, but anything else he can find….)

SIT!!

STAY!

 

All of this has left me feeling a bit like this…

Please come home quick parents.

Bring food.

And wine….

Maybe not…. how about coffee?

Here in our county, we celebrate Independence Day on the FIFTH of July.

How was your Fourth of July?  Our family had a great day, we went to church, came home and had an awesome dinner of salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and biscuits.  (My momma, the eBay Queen is a good cook.  She’s cool like that.)  I went outside and gardened for awhile… (I need to post some pictures of the garden.),  Came inside and FINALLY finished a book, and was super excited to learn that my Ginger (aka: P-Tricky) had the evening off work, and he was coming to watch fireworks with us. 

And then….

It started raining.

and ruined any plans for fireworks…

We were going to a family friend’s house to watch an awesome fireworks display, but ended up coming home and watching PBS instead.  Don’t get me wrong, it was fun!  But it can’t compare to this:

or this:

 

We were able to see these yesterday, July 5th.  Because Franklin County is awesome.  Because they didn’t want the little children, pyros, and spoiled knitters (like me) to cry and whine for the rest of the year about their lack of fireworks on the Fourth of July.

Because we’re not going to let a little rain ruin our party… and because we have some seriously patriotic people in our community.  Thank you!
