Our annual adventure in Texas is coming to a close...

Listening in:  DMIL cleaning her kitchen while the Pirate is watching The Princess and the Frog

View from the kitchen window: well really its a patio door and it is Fort Worth at Twilight

Joy in the little things:  knowing that Capitan America will be here in a couple of days

So, once again my little family finds itself in Fort Worth, Texas...a place that makes us all more than a little happy.  Of course time has flown and we haven't' even seen everyone on our list of people to see... we never do.  There just isn't enough time.  Our summer in Texas is coming to a close and this year for the first time...I am READY to head back to Georgia.  I have plenty of things to do when I get home but first I think it is always important to list what we have enjoyed while here in Texas.  I am usually so busy that it seems like we do nothing! So here goes:

A milestone...so to speak...

Listen in:  Hubby watching the news in our room

View from the window:  it is midnight so...no view to speak of

Pleasure in the simple things:  The Pirate came in to tell me he was practicing his Patience...our bible lesson from class this morning

Plans for the day:  tomorrow...to blog again


So, today is a milestone in my life.  It begins my final year in my 30's.  This may not seem like a big deal but I am not sure how I feel about it.  39.  I think I am sad.  I don't feel old.  I don't even feel like a grown up most of the time...
How are you supposed to act at 39?  I don't know.  I can remember being a teenager and I thought people my age were ancient.  Am I making too much out of this?


I decided (just now) that I am going to make 39 a year to remember.  I had a great friend who made a list of things to do before her 40th birthday.   That sounds like a great idea.   Except I can't think of anything.  What would you do?  Money and time is always an issue for me.  A single income family...so things that won't break the bank.  Send those ideas my way!


Blessings
Cheerful
