Pointless Bullets

* My brain is mush. Too many thoughts, too many things to do, long weekend.

* I'm birthdayed out ... from mine to La Petite Belle's to a co-worker's to a good friend's ... TIRED ... too much partying.
* I taught La Petite Belle to load the dishwasher. Finally, I will give my kids the chore I said I would never make my children do (as a kid myself).
* The girls have designed dozens of fashions from La Petite Belle's "Project Runway" Fashion Designer. Move over Donna Karan.
* Cold birthday cake ... not good.
* Did I mention I'm in charge of the women's ministry at our church? Yeah ... just walkin' through that door. We'll talk later. Overwhelmed.
* I will meet La Petite Belle for lunch because today is her actual birthday (yes, more celebrating) and bring cookies or cupcakes for her class.
* K Belle is living a life of being punished, grounded, etc. Exhausting for Momma. Just praying for wisdom and guidance. Been waking her up early to read the Word and pray together.
* Must buy milk.
* Roxy Belle went to the spa and smells delightful (for a dog).
* Laughed so hard last night with friends that I cried twice.
* Hate it when the DVR gets a mind of its own and decides to record only half of a show.
* Scared about this election and the future of our country.
* Beau just told me he thinks he's fat as he lays on the couch with his "Biggest Loser" t-shirt on.

I heart you :)

- Can't wait to hear how God uses you in the womens ministry, scary for you: exciting for them!

- Tell Beau I'm feeling a littly fatty myself...if I could just tear myself away from the chair and do something about it....

Really, some of my favorite posts to read follow this outline - pointless bullets. :) I just feel like I know you a little bit better.
I hope you get some rest; physical rest as well as rest from the little Belle who has needed much punishment these days. I know that can be very tiring...

We are scared for our countries future too. After hearing Jim Cramer this morning I went into panic mode and called my DH at work. He is holding tight but watching closely. All extra spending for us is put on hold and we have begun to store it away.

You are perfect to head up women's ministries. I am involved in our women's ministries committee. Surround yourself with Godly women and pray - ALOT!

Your hubs is funny!


Tammy said...

Ha ha some good things there.

And if you are referring to the Amazing Race DVR fiasco it happened at my house too.....and boy was I miffed!!

Sara@ Butterville said...

Curses! That DVR. I hear your pain. I missed Grey's Anatomy.

Growin' with it! said...

it's so fun to laugh along with you at some of these! and hey, what's wrong with cold bday cake? i sure don't let that stop me!

the dishwasher? that sounds familiar. especially as i watch my 2 boys. it's like my sister and i all over again! the funniest part of this chore is trying to find the dishes they put away. it's amazing how little boy's minds work. hee hee.

Rachel said...

OK, your point about Beau was hilarious.

Thought about you when we turned at Opelousas last night. I was like, "Man, we should just go the extra 20 miles." It sounds like you were "friend-ed out" though. :)

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Pointless bullets from you are awesome.

I am so with on being scared about the election. I know it's in God's hands, but wow. Scared.

Praying for you that K Belle will be receptive to the correction and know that you're doing this because you love her.

Jules from "The Roost" said...

Great list....Especially the last one. Funny!

Cassandra @ Tripping Around The Sun said...

In our state, you can longer bring cupcakes or snacks of anykind for that matter to celebrate birthdays with. Sad.
And with three girls, buying milk on my to-do list every day. literally.

RR Mama said...

I am right there with you on being overwhelmed! I'll pray for you and you pray for me. Hope it all gets better soon.

Lula! said...

Be still and know He is God...

I have to quote this often. It's easier to quote than to live out, I know. But still...

And you need a nap. Go take one, with my permission.

Elizabeth said...

i'm starting to hear more and more about this "mama bell" with her birthday last week and all...but I want to know YOU'VE BEEN TAGGED. check out the meme on my post.

Carlie Faulk said...

yep - I couldn't sleep last night because there were so many things going thru my head. And it's all your fault ~ hehehe!!! :)

Brandi said...

Too funny. . .loved the last one about your hubby!

Hey, I'm in charge of our women's ministry too. . so email me if you have any questions. We just got back from our retreat last night!


Aminta said...

Funny that the puppy Belle has a spa of her own! I remember those days. Now our Pup gets nothin' but loads of love, even if she is stinky. ;) Just kidding.
Seriously, you don't like COLD CAKE!????? I adore cold chocolate cake right out of the frige. There is something about te cold chocolate frosting....I don't know.
Here is to hoping that your week is a wonderful one!
Blessings to you!

Andrea @ Mommy Snacks said...

OK, those are generally serious but then you closed with Beau's comment and his t-shirt...I had to laugh!
