I have a vlog for you today...that I filmed on Monday when the kids and I went on an adventure. Before you watch this...I need to tell you a little story about our week. I'm going to start by telling you that we NEVER go anywhere on Monday. I like to spend my Monday doing laundry, cleaning house and getting everything ready for the week. It's my catch up day.
Monday morning, something made me get dressed (i threw on some make up but didn't do my hair) and take the kids out. When we got home...we ate some lunch watched a show and took a nap. After nap, we got ready for Calvin to come home and we were going to an Open House at the fire station that I had read about in Sunday's paper. The open house ended up being NEXT week (the paper just said MONDAY) so we went downtown, got hotdogs and walked up and down 25th Street looking at all of the painted horses. Here is my Whrrl story.
Then we stopped for ice cream at Zeppes before they close for the season. By the time we got home it was bedtime. Because of our activities...the kids didn't play in their playroom.
Tuesday, the weather turned cold so I made a tent in the family room and we hung out watching TV most of the day....a lazy day after our busy Monday. Plus, I had much laundry to do....
All day Tuesday, something kept telling me to go clean the playroom. Rob had slept down there on an air mattress over the weekend but I had noticed that Calvin took it down so I didn't really think I needed to do much down there but this nagging thought wouldn't leave my mind.
During nap time, I finally went downstairs to *clean* and as soon as I walked into the room...I saw it. A PILL! There was a prescription pill in the middle of the playroom and it scared the shit out of me. I ran up stairs to look up what it was and it was LITHIUM. It was Robert's Pill. I started crying thinking of what could have happened if one of the kids had gotten ahold of it. And then I realized....The Lord was keeping us busy...to keep the kids out of the playroom.
Once again...he held my family in his hands and protected them from harm.
The power of prayer my friends! I've been praying like crazy for God to help us, keep us safe and keep Calvin employed. I just hope I haven't asked for too much.....
Today is Calvin's 3 year anniversary at work. And Monday is the day...layoff day. I want to thank everyone that has been praying for us and keeping us in your thoughts. I'm confident that no matter what happens...we'll be fine. Because God is looking out for us.
