Usually Sadie sits next to me and says her rosary. But then Mae stood up and started "dancing." And suddenly Sadie was right there with her, enthusiastically twirling across the living room.
My camera was next to me and I started to take a video with it... but I have yet to check to see how it turned out. I think it's going to be pretty shaky because around the time I started filming Paul said: "See, this is what happens when Catholics give birth to Pentecostals" and after a very long, long day I just couldn't stop laughing.
Though it was a struggle, I managed not to laugh at the exuberantly passionate five year old standing next to me. This kid. Maybe that's why she was so fascinated when we were reading her little study Bible earlier in the week as it talked about David dancing before the Ark of the Covenant as they entered the city...
Nearly a month of frozen dinners, a huge stockpile of meat (because when meats a good price I buy it and freeze it) and all the strawberries I'd bought when they were around a dollar a pound and then sliced and frozen for smoothies were all totally defrosted. It looked like it had happened a while ago... and nothing was save-able.
I think at some point that would have caused me to cry... but I sighed and went upstairs and told Paul we had some major freezer cleaning to do and went on with the day and really tried to find the humor in another mini household disaster...
One of these days (or years... it's not that high on the list of priorities... I've been using a mason jar as a glass for a while now) I'm going to have to go out and buy new glassware... the bowls are still numerous enough to be okay, but I'd say 80% of my glasses have been shattered in the past two years (or since a certain someone was mobile)... and the kids generally don't use the glassware themselves... but somehow they still have managed to break quite a few of the glasses.
