Monday - by Brad

Woke up at 6:00. Read Psalms 101-103. Showered & dressed for work. Ate one slice of toast and peanut butter and a half glass of chocolate milk. Went out to the van to get my jacket and noticed the dome light had been left on overnight. I tried to start the van to make sure it would work for Lindsey to take Elliott to school. It barely had enough juice to start the engine, so I drove it around for 10 minutes to recharge the battery. Success. Off to work. I'll spare the boring accountanty details, but while working on a February financial report, the word "February" really bothered me. Who really says both R's in that word? Why haven't the English language gurus changes the spelling already? Aaargh! I might take it upon myself to start spelling it "Feb-U-ary" in protest.

Drove home for lunch at noon. Lindsey had made some turkey, pepperoni and mozzarella flat bread thing... delicious. Lindsey and I played two hands of Monopoly Deal as we ate (she won both hands) while Wesley and Spencer played together quite nicely. Drove back to work... more accountanty details omitted.

Fajitas! Dinner was ready when I got home from work. Although they weren't smoking like at a Mexican restaurant, Lindsey was on top of her game today (not that I am saying she belongs in the kitchen). Elliott had a friend over after school and he stayed for dinner. Lindsey's brother stopped by and chatted for a while. Lindsey took Elliott's friend home. Wesley and Spencer took baths, Spencer and I played a little board game, I played guitar and picked out songs for church this Sunday, the boys had some dessert and then got ready for bed. We had our second night of our family devotions. Lindsey thought we should start doing family devotions, and it certainly was a good idea. Tonight was about God creating the animals and how his creation points to a creator.

Relaxed with Lindsey watching TV. Going to bed at 10:11.

sounds like a good day...almost as good as your Saturday.

Any day starting with Ps 103 is good. That is my favorite Psalm. I liked your journal entry. Sounds like a pretty nice day.

Just another day in paradise! Are you using a devo book? I'm looking for one appropriate for 4 year olds.

Jen, its called Goodnight Warrior. Lindsey found it online and at least the first two have been good. All three boys have seemed interested and responsive to questions so far.

Sounds like a nice day. Your story could use more accountanty details. It's like a cliffhanger for me!
