This has been a tough week for me. Lots going on in lots of different areas of my life. One particular area makes me very, very sad. A messageboard that has been a source of inspiration and comfort for the past 5 years has reached a point of no return (that's my opinion, anyway). I don't know if it's going to recover. It's really, really sad. I have my own thoughts and feelings about all that's been going on and the handling of things but I won't get into it here. I'm still trying to decide if I'll get into there. Regardless, it just makes me sad.
I was feeling quite lazy today and so decided we'd go out to eat. I had a horrible dining experience. We went out to Cheddar's. In the past, we have had decent dinners there. Sometimes it's bit too salty, but otherwise, it's been fine. Tonight my meal came way undercooked. I sent it back and it took forever to get back. My server said the manager would come out to talk to me. I never did get to speak to one unless it was the woman who finally brought out my meal. She just asked if it was cooked enough this time and then left.
Not a BIG deal, but then the server took forever to come back. We were there 20 minutes longer than we should have. The food ended up being not worth the wait. I was so aggravated!
So, if you are alone with no other sound because you've turned the TV off and the children are asleep, you should really turn the sound down on your computer so when the owls start screeching, you don't lose 10 years off your life (how's that for a run-on?). I'm just saying.
I'm going shopping this Saturday. I'm debating whether to leave after Pumpkin's ballet class or after Sister's. I have lots of places to visit once I get down to Austin so I might have Sister make up her class on Monday. We'll see. I think I found a dress but when I went back to the website, it was not there. It was only two days ago that I saw it. Hopefully the store will have it in stock.
I'm also on the hunt for an entertainment center that has bookcases on the ends with doors. However, I don't want glass doors because I want to be able to hide books in there. My children are not always neat and I can't handle one more thing to straighten. I'm looking into this which is affordable but I need to check if it's sturdy. I also need some bookcases for the children's rooms. They are overrun with books.
I can't believe Lent is almost over. Spiritually, I feel pretty dry. I need to do something about it. I need a book to study. Any suggestions? Something not too difficult.
I thought I'd been doing pretty well during this deployment but I think I've hit a wall. I need to climb over it but can't seem to figure out how.
