Yesterday at Confirmation III, we were talking about the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit and I was trying to get the kids to memorize them. So for Gifts - I had them repeat after me: knowledge, wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. Then, for the fruits - I sang them the chorus of this song:
And rightfully embarrassed myself: love, joy, peace, and patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control - don't forget about all the faithfulness - ohoooo.... Anyway, I told them to learn it, so we'll see if they do in the next couple of weeks!
Today (and yesterday actually), I made coffee, like I do every day, and I don't have any half'n'half. I had to use Light Organic Soy Milk in my coffee to cut the bitter blackness taste - and it's just not the same. I think it means either a) it's going to be a bad week, or b) I'm on my way to drinking black coffee ... Honestly, I'm really against either of those options! Maybe it just means I'm too lazy and too cheap to go grocery shopping!
I'm not going grocery shopping because I'm leaving for New York City bright and early on Friday morning! Flying to Nate's so I can drive home my BRAND NEW (to me) CAR! Roommate is flying up to drive home with me - and I'm super psyched! It's just what I wanted a few months ago when we were going to Atlanta - to have a fun road trip where we sing, hang out, and bond in the car. I think this will be good for us, and it'll be good to have a car. Rental is mind until Thursday (if I remember to call them today - if I don't, it's more like I stole the car. That's just what I need on my record, Grand Theft Auto!
I'm excited to see Nate - this year has been the time I've seen him the most. We were together for Christmas for almost a week, in March I went to visit him for a long 4 day weekend, a few weeks ago we were both home for Dad's Retirement party, and now this weekend for a quick three days - which I'll only see him for half of it. It's good since I'm probably not going home for Thanksgiving when he and Amy are coming to meet our family - and they are going to see her family for Christmas. I'm going to have to go to New York in the spring to meet her and hang out with them again! I like having excuses to go to New York City - and seeing my brother more often is even better!
Well, gotta get ready for work... See you Wednesday for Favorites with Hallie over at Moxie Wife!
