Today's the Big Day!

Wow, 4 comments??? That made my week, y'all. Now let's see if we can step it up and exceed that number this time.

Only joking. :)

But it seriously did make me happy to get those comments! I guess parenting is thought-provoking...??

So anyways, TODAY IS THE BIG DAY!!!!! In 6.5 hours, I will be leaving to go pick up my friends from the airport. It's good that I have that much time, though, because I made a list of the things I really need to do today:

clean out the car
get gas in both cars
vacuum the house
buy food for Anna and Hannah for when they get off the plane and are hungry
get ice water ready
get a sandwich ready since I will be hungry after picking them up
make a country music CD for the drive home (gotta get them used to Texas straight away!)
wash/fold all laundry
clean bathrooms
get a map to the airport and print it out just in case

Is anyone else excited about the wintertime? I think I was reminded of the winter because I am wearing my cozy sweatshirt, which is something I haven't done all summer. I am excited about making my house all warm and cozy, wearing sweaters and scarves and gloves and possibly hats (we'll see about that one. I really want to be a hat person, but my hair is kinda difficult for that... that's another subject entirely). I want to light candles all throughout my house and play relaxing music. Most likely John Mayer. I can't wait to snuggle under blankets and watch Christmas movies. Most of all, though, I can't wait for the Christmas party! I can't explain how pumped I am!
Last night, Sarah came over with Deborah and Krista. We had a wonderful time eating Sonic (I rarely ever eat fast food, so that was good for me), having tea, cake and homemade chocolate chip cookies, playing poker (I almost won, but went all in and the very end. Christina took everything!!!) and watching a PBS documentary about ferrets. Sarah had rented it from Netflix. This documentary was insane... I can't believe how crazy people get about ferrets! Most of the people interviewed on this show were middle-aged, overweight women with way too much time on their hands. My favorite ferret person was one such woman who made up a song about ferrets. They showed her singing various verses at intervals throughout the show. Here's one of them (sorry Kellie, I stole this from your blog):

Priceless. We all learned the chorus and sung it every time it came on.

My favorite quote from the movie was this:

"It seemed that as I got older, I replaced my children with ferrets as they moved out of the house. The advantage was, I could put them in a cage, but they arrest you if you do that to your kids."

Funnily enough, it was the same lady who made up the song that said this...

So I had a dream last night where I lost my favorite shoes - the shoes I have worn every single day this summer (brown flip flops with gold straps). I was at some party or something, and I guess we all took our shoes off. I don't understand that, but whatever. Then I went back to collect them later, and someone had taken my shoes and left their own, which looked similar but definitely weren't the same size. I was very upset about this, which is kind of funny because last night I read about seeking the Kingdom first and not storing up treasures on Earth... Actually, come to think of it, the last time I read those verses (earlier this summer), I had a similar dream. I dreamed that someone stole the car that Carolyn and I share. Hmmm, that's very interesting... maybe God is trying to tell me something?

I wish I could pop my back. I think it needs to be popped right now, but I'm not sure how to do it.

Last night it started raining really hard, which made me really happy. It was thundering and lightning, too, which made me even more excited. I love thunderstorms! I just checked the weather, and it says that it's supposed to thunderstorm all day. I would be pretty happy about this, but I'll be driving to the airport. I don't like to drive to places I haven't driven before in bad weather. But whatev.

Well, I guess I should get a move on and get ready. I am hungry, my breath is not pretty, and I am in desperate need of a shower. Sounds like a recipe for disaster if I don't do something about it soon! :)

6 hours.
