It's organized randomness

I haven't been able to make a full post out of my thoghts lately, so here they are in no particular order:

1. We have finished two full weeks of deployment! Luke is taking it the hardest and his behavior has deteriorated quite a bit. The other day he flooded our bathroom....literally. I had just shut off the water in his bath and had been out of the room for maybe three minutes when Chloe ran to tell me Luke was getting the floor wet. I went to check, and he had emptied out most of the tub using the bucket for rinsing hair. There was half an inch of water covering the entire bathroom floor, and it flooded the carpet three feet out into the hallway. Of course all he could say as I lectured and punished and made him help clean up, was "why not?"

2. I really like webcams. This is the first time we have been able to use them while he's been gone and it changes the dynamics a bit. Although I had to laugh because since my husband is looking down at his laptop screen and not the camera, it makes it look like he's trying to look down my shirt from the computer! And since he totally does that in real life, it's kind of like he's standing right in front of me :)

3. While blog browsing several weeks ago I came across Jennifer at Mississippi Girl whose husband was almost home from a deployment. We got to commenting and emailing and decided we'd try to get together, as we probably lived close enough. Then last Sunday I saw a pretty black-haired girl singing on our praise team at church, and guess what! It was her! We live just a few blocks from each other and go to the same church. So we got together for lunch at Chick Fil A last week, and I had a blast! She's so sweet and so fun to talk to and our kids enjoyed playing together. It just humbled me to think of how God worked all those details out, from directing me to her blog, and her to mine, to moving us near each other, knowing that having someone nearby who could relate to me would be a huge encouragement. Plus she gave me a recommendation for a good salon to get a haircut, and if that isn't evidence of God's provision, I don't know what is!

4. I just got the book "Chocolatherapy" in the mail. I'll let you know how it is!

Oh, and I can't wait to hear how "Chocolatherapy" is!

Hi, Christy---we are making a 2nd pan of brownies at this very moment!

Webcams are cool :-)

I'll be sending out an email for our little group of "Chocolatherapy" readers. Be on the lookout! Chrissy

Oh Christy, how blessed you are to have found Jennifer!! I am so tickled at the ways God is already helping you. I am positive there are many more things like this on its way to you!!

By the way, it may be weird and all, seeing as how I just found your blog not too long ago, but I have nominated you for a Rockin' Girl blog award! You have made an impact on me since I've found you--I've even made you part of my prayers--and I wanted to let you know! Hop over and check it out if you get a chance--God bless--Missy
