oldest went to his mom’s as I was fifteen minutes late arriving home. This gave daughter and I to finalize our plans for Easter.
Second did not come right in when the bus arrived and I caught him unpacking a backpack full of toys. As he knows he is not allowed to bring toys to school he lost them till school is out.

“Bible” read. Love Proverbs!
talk with hubby to use the Buick to go to Sioux Falls with daughter tomorrow.
now I get my quiet time.
the girl who is living with her sister says she does not think the church I go to is for her. Okay, I am fine with that. Actually what church is going to be right for a girl who has never been to church and will be thirteen in a week. On top of that she lost her mother two years ago, almost three. The mom had a heartache at work and died instantly from what I understand. Both parents were alcoholics, and she was left with the dad. So at the beginning of the school year the girl I know, her sister goes and gets her from the dad. The dad is not really caring for the girl. The sister, the woman I know, tells me a few months ago that she has the girl not because she wants her, but because she feels obligated to have her. That’s why I decided I should invite her to church. I had to call the woman I know yesterday to ask if she was staying at my house tonight while she has her baby. Oh, no my husband’s mom is going to stay at my house with her. Okay, is she having a party for her birthday Friday. Well, I have something planned for her, but I am not sure what. Okay, just say to stay out of her life, or you feel threatened by me, or the girl doesn’t like me. Run around answers. Well is she planning to go to church Sunday? She told John that she would love to go back to Chinese and he would get a cake for her and we could all celebrate together. Well, I don’t think she is going to do that, that church is not for her. Well, I need to let the guy know as he was getting a cake and gifts. Well, I don’t think she is going to go. Okay, I well tell John that.
My grandson wanted to know what happened. I told him that you can open your heart and let someone in, but if they are not ready, then just keep your heart open should they change there mind. She has gone through a lot and she hasn’t had a lot of exposure to caring people, and I think we overwhelmed her. So we just need to keep praying for her.
Kids had off school so got an extra half hour of sleep.
boys getting up and getting ready for the day.
out the house on time.
good chiropractor appointment for us all(8).
return what daughter had me pick up yesterday from rummage sale.
people did not hassle me, but seemed not impressed with us, however, we were not impressed either. The woman said it would be cleaned and it was not. Daughter did clean it, but still dirty after she spent and hour, so decided to return it. The woman told her she did not need to be rude.
fast stop at the grocery store.
lunch at home with the boys.
watch a movie with daughter and all the kids.
went with hubby to pick up daughters mattresses. Again, not impressed, but couldn’t beat the price. Got there in the nick of time to get the last king size. They sold more, but they were not there for pick up. The woman behind me had to request her money back.

am very crabby. Thinking this is coming from the chemo. It happens every so often, but then perhaps it’s the April 15th moon, mars alignment thing. Pick up something from rummage for my daughter and she didn’t like it and didn’t want it, and so she was upset. Number two grandson did his I don’t have to do what you want I am playing, so I got upset with him. Now I have a very bad headache.

hubby still making my off the ground garden. Two pieces done so far, and now I know where to get free mulch. Things are looking up. Going to plant the herbs in cans and put them in pallets like I have seen on pintrest. Last garden was three years ago and it was only weeds, even though I invest with my sister nearly $100 for the plants and stuff.
visit with a church person who was picking up his son from a neighbor down the street.
still very thankful for each day, but a little down that I have not stuck 100% to the diet. Getting moving in the mornings is so hard, even when I am so excited for the day.

my friends sister has not gone with us in two weeks since her dad passed away. Can you imagine what you would feel like loosing your mom at ten and then your dad by the time you are thirteen. Living with your sister who says she really doesn’t want you there.
looking forward to the pick me up on this hump day.
hubby is working on my raised garden bed…Yay…he does not want to go to church.
