Caffeinated Randomness: Half Caff

My stomach feels sensitive...so I've only had a half a cup of coffee...so we'll call this a half caff randomness day...okay!?

My parents came to visit for a brief visit. I hadn't been able to go see my parents since Thanksgiving. I was so excited. The kids had a hard time going down for naps cuz they were so excited...I'd told them they would be there when they woke up from naps. I read a book...and waited...impatiently...


Now, if I were a swooning type of girlie...like you read about in Jane Austen-like times...I wouldn't have fluttered to the ground here next...cuz my Dad surprised me by giving me his old MacBook...cuz he had upgraded. It was a total surprise!! I am so excited...beyond words...beyond tickled pink...I'm tickled MacBook White! I joked for years about them needed to check my luggage when I leave them...cuz MacBooks are so small and stashable! Hehehe! Anyhew...in case I didn't express it enough....THANK YOU *happy little Bobbi dance*!!!!!

We were having an awesome visit. I was making a Greek Feast again...and my Mom was helping me cut and slice. It's so nice just to cook with her...cuz we talk while we chop, etc. And then...Emma who'd been following around after Grandma and Grandpa happily...suddenly started complaining of stomach pain...and then...yup, you guessed it...BLAHHHHHHHH!!!! She had some sort of intestinal woe going on...All.Through.Dinner.

So, hence...my stomach has been tense and nervous ever since. Part of it is kicking into MomE mode (responsibility)...part of it is grossness (hello, it was during dinner)...and part of it is my TRUSTING GOD issues (where I begin worrying about it and wondering what the future of pukedom holds for me.)

Thankfully, Mom and Dad were totally relaxed and understanding...and Praise the Lord (He answers prayers) and so far no one else has been ill. A bit green around the gills...maybe. AND...even though I slept stiffly (HELLO OUCHY CRINK IN MY NECK)...no one awoke during the night and needed their sheets stripped, etc. Praise God from whom ALL BLESSINGS flow! Um, totally no pun intended there...sorry!

So, now they've headed back for their long journey home...and I'm sitting here typing on MY MacBook...*sigh*...man, life is good! Not wanting you to think that my praise to God is conditional on my getting updated technology,etc...cuz...even if the sweet boobahs awake from nap sick and icky...God is still good...all the time!!

All the time, God is good!!

I am so glad the sickness hasn't spread -- I hope it doesn't!

I'm so sorry for the sickness, but this line totally cracked me up...

"and part of it is my TRUSTING GOD issues (where I begin worrying about it and wondering what the future of pukedom holds for me.)"....

Love Macs! I just switched from a PC a few months ago and I can't tell you how much I adore it. I thought the transition would be a challenge but it was easy, easy. Enjoy!

I loved your comment from yesterday :) Would you believe I was only on my 1st cup of coffee? Turns out randomness is one of the gifts God gave me :)

And the donut thing...we had a youth group activity last night so the kids had to kneel, have their hands behind their backs and try to eat the donuts that way. It was so fun to watch them!!

Hope your family feels better, I tend to get a sensitive tummy as soon as my kids mention they've got one. And, I just love those cute coffee designs you have!

Happy weekend, and thanks so much for visiting yesterday!
