For example ... today I slept until 8:30am (GASP!!!), got up, made breakfast for the kids, still haven't done the breakfast dishes (it's 6:47pm), finally got dressed at 1pm (only because we were going out), went to visit friends and swim until 5pm and here I sit, still having no clue what I'm going to feed my kiddos for dinner. Ahhhhhhh ....... summer.
***Husband just sent a text telling me he can meet us out for dinner in a bit. Dinner plans solved !!! BONUS!!!
So like 2 weeks ago I fell down the steps of my porch. Right on my bottom - HARD !!! OUCH!!! Who knew that bruising or breaking your tailbone hurt so bad for so long. I asked my husband how long it would take to feel better and he said ... "Could take months. Even up to a year" ... I was like "Yea, seriously doubt that" ... I looked online for the info instead. It said the same thing. I'm totally bumming right now. The thought of sitting in my car for like 10 hours when we drive to Tennessee at the end of this month is already bringing tears to my eyes. It's not as bad as it was a few days ago, but still pretty tender and achy depending on how and how long I sit.
So I've attempted to start reading the Book of Mormon again. I can't tell you how many times I've tried. As a member of the church for over 6 years you would think that I would have read it through all the way at least once right? Maybe instead of always starting over, i need to just pick up where I left off. I actually love reading D&C and I have those pages so marked up. I am eager to finish reading that. It's just hard for me to get through the Book of Mormon. Not knowing all those stories like I know the ones from the Old & New Test makes it hard for me. I grew up with the Old & New Test. It's what I know.
I have been feeling the need/prompting as of late to strengthen my testimony. I'm not doubting at all, I just don't want to become comfortable and not grow. I'm ready to do some growing. I'm hungry and need to be fed.
I found this really neat tool on Pinterest (of course) for the Book of Mormon. At the top of each page you write a sentence about what that page is about. It's handy for me. It's Book of Mormon page titles. It's very cool. Check it out. As I read I am writing mine in.
Isn't that cool? Love that idea.
Okay folks. I'm outta here ... need to feed these kiddos of mine.
