Coffee by Copeland (Tuesday Tunes)

“Coffee”

There’s plenty of time left tonight
I promised I’d have you home before daylight
We do the best we can in a small town
Act like big city kids when the sun goes down

If it’s not too late for coffee
I’ll be at your place in ten
We’ll hit that all night diner
And then we’ll see

There’s so many things I have to say
I’ll stay up all night to hear about your day
We do the best we can in a small town
Act like kids in love when the sun goes down

If it’s not too late for coffee
I’ll be at your place in ten
We’ll hit that all night diner
And then we’ll see

There’s a love that transcends
All that we’ve known of ourselves
And I’ll wait for it to come
I’ll wait for it to come
Well it’s got to be strong to touch my heart
Through its shell
And I’ll wait for it to come
I’ll wait for it to come

If it’s not too late for coffee
I’ll be at your place in ten
We’ll hit that all night diner
And then we’ll see

There’s a love that transcends
All that we’ve known of ourselves
And I’ll wait for it to come
I’ll wait for it to come
Well it’s got to be strong to touch my heart
Through its shell
And I’ll wait for it to come
I’ll wait for it to come down

Manic Monday

I make this to do list for myself at work everyday,  and somehow I never manage to check it all off.  I also occasionally lose it and freak out trying to find it.  Just a typical day.  But today I checked off a few more then I normally do,  so that is cause for celebration.

In another note,  I really need to find a steady babysitter.  Stressing about that one is getting really tiring.

You Do You (Scripture Sunday)

For what credit is it if,  when you are beaten for your faults,  you take it patiently?  But when you do good and suffer,  if you take it patiently,  this is commendable before God.

1 Peter 2:20

Hope important is this message?! Ya,  of course you should treasure your punishment when you do wrong.  But if you have done no wrong and you are being punished… turn the other cheek. Take it. Sure you have done no wrong, but the punishment is not a reflection on you,  or who you are as a person. It reflects badly on those who allow the punishment,  or carry it out themselves.  You have done no wrong,  continue to do so. Be patient,  it will get better with time,  and you will be a stronger,  better person for it. 

This is a lesson I’m working on in my own life. I’m going to do me,  and not let the others opinion of my work or capabilities gold me back.

Family Friday

Josh
Haven’t really seen much of this working fool lately. But as always,  l love him like crazy and his never ending support means so much.  He has helped me through a few tough things this past week,  and backs me entirely about going to school.

Allason
As always,  saving our butts. Once we pay her she’ll be able to but the I phone she wants.  I love watching her with the kids,  she is such a great sister.

Walker
Apparently I was misinformed last week.  He did NOT get the zombie job,  but he is applying at the Firehouse restaurant.  He is really into tricks and decks of cards,  and his birthday dinner this week is going to be tons of different appetizers.

Madison
Haven’t really seen Maddie aside from Sunday,  but she is enjoying school in Melba. Still loves to play outside, and when she is inside she spends most of her time in her room singing karaoke.

Zander
This kid cracks me up on a daily basis.  The other day he made the strangest face and then goes, ” look mom!  I’m happy! ” and then made the face again.  And then he took the fly scatter to “kill them flies”, but when he hit one he dropped the fly swatter, ran to the fly and started apologizing. He then told me he didn’t want to kill the flies anymore. Getting a little better with the potty.

Kyrie
I’m sure non parents don’t get me always talking about the potty, but she went poop on the potty three times this week!!! Right now she isn’t feeling the best, and has a cough with a runny noise,  but she is still using the potty. She has a fat lip. I wasn’t here when it happened,  but when I came home she showed it to me and told me she ran into a wall. Still doing great with her colors, too.

Me
Going in next Thursday to get my classes signed up and fill out my FASFA. On the work front I’m excited to teach Niomi schedules. Other then that,  same old.  Not enough sleep and too much to do.

Thankful Thursday

1. I’m so thankful that Kyrie loves using the potty and wearing panties. It makes it much easier to deal with Zander’s resistance.  And,  occasionally,  it inspires him to try again.

2. Coffee. Coffee makes life so much easier to deal with,  and just smelling some can make me instantly feel better. Luckily for me,  my job makes it easy to have coffee every day.

3.  Allason and Christina.  These two have helped tremendously with babysitting.  Knowing the people who watch my kids makes it easier to relax.  It’s nice to not have to add my kids’ safety to my worry list.
