Wake up. A shooting in Germany. Oh! gotta go start laundry and breakfast. Read that in 1977 and 1996 there were plans to build hurricane barriers and improve the levees in New Orleans but these were thwarted by the EPA. Time to take the kids outside; Baby doesn’t seem to be feeling well. Trump and Hillary are really going at it; can’t believe that someone who betrayed her country in so many ways is still considered a viable candidate. Toddler “helps” me unload the dishwasher by handing me each utensil after he licks it; we then move on to the laundry, but he wants to throw in the next dirty load before I’ve unloaded the clean one. Heard there was another shooting in our country and there were some bombings in the Middle East. It’s Bible Time with the toddler before the baby’s next feeding. Oh, how dreadful! A pregnant woman in Germany was hacked to death by a machete-wielding Syrian refugee. Lunch! Now they’re saying that in 40 years there won’t be enough electricity left to operate our computers. What kind of world are we living in? Nap time. I can’t believe that Planned Parenthood says they’re all about caring for women and reducing the need for abortions, yet they build larger surgical clinics to do late-term abortions and are reducing the amount of free birth control they provide. Could the $4000 price tag attached to those late-term abortions have anything to do with it? I need to work on some of my small business tasks. I am beginning to wonder if Trump is the person our country needs in these desperate times. He made it this far for some reason. Need to fold laundry before the kids get up. I heard that a friend of mine is going through some tough times; I hope I can encourage her in some way. Kids are awake! Time to feed the baby. There are so many things I still want to do today! Reading, blogging, French review…and what about those screens and window ledges! When was the last time I cleaned them? Husband is home! Time to start dinner! Everything seems so perfect on Facebook; am I the only one who ever has struggles? Bath, story, and bed time. How are we going to spend the day tomorrow? Did I accomplish anything today? Have I made a difference in this world? Is God using me for His glory? Do I matter to the world around me? Is Jesus pleased with how I have lived? And all those hurting people and animals and unborn babies….sleep.
