I have wanted this devotional for 2 years but have never had the money on hand at the right time. The Kindle version is on sale today for $0.99 so I napped it. I'm linking in case you're interested.

Nice!  Jack Miller was a mentor of many a pastor in my area.  My favorite quote - 'Cheer up! You're a worse sinner than you ever dared imagine, and you're more loved than you ever dared hope.'

Maybe we need to start a new ITT thread. This one is long! It’s almost like a sub forum!

You hush.

To accentuate the fact that I am an old fuddy duddy, I was one of the only people who could purchase things at the pharmacy today when their debit/credit card system went down.  Real live checks to the rescue!

No new threads.  This thread has history.  And a queen.  And it's own island.  And Susan comes to wish us Happy Anniversary every year.

Oh no! No new threads.  This is the original. Like Jean said, it has history. And it has its own culture, language and traditions.

Tonight's dinner:

Papa Murphy's pizza (3 of us) and drive through (McD's for 3 and Panda Express for 1).

I've been baking mini muffins for dh's work luncheon tomorrow. I'm too tired to cook. I want a root beer and pizza. (And yes, really root beer. hmmm... maybe I need to grab some Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream, too.)

We had more leftovers.  Well, purposeful leftovers.  We cooked for the week on Monday.  So I had taco chicken on a teensy weensy bit of baked sweet potato.  Dh had pork bbq sandwiches.  I think dc ate Hi-Chews (candy).  Ds32 ate pizza at a work meeting.  Oh wait!  Ds11 did come back and hard boil an egg for himself.

I made pizza beans with bread sticks. It wasn't bad. 5/6 said it was acceptable.

They are almost finished with the floor, I think. Now we have a drain in the middle of a random room. WTH? It wasn't visible under the carpet and we had no idea it was there. They cut a hole in a plank and put a white cap on it. I don't like it. I don't know if there's anything I can do about it but it looks terrible. It's a safety hazard too because it's big enough for Baby to fall in, there's water in it, and there's nothing securing the cap. 

DH said they'd have to pull up most of the floor in that room to cover it up. 😒

One week from today we will be in the Caribbean, swimming with the Nemos. Can't wait!!!

DS(17) is being a typical teenage butthead and doesn't want to go. I'm pretty sure he'll have fun once there, but ugh...he can't just be happy. The same kid at 7 whined all the way on a drive to Disney World about how we should have just left him at Grandma's house because he didn't want to go. Of course he had the most fun out of anyone once there and was happy we didn't leave him.

Consider yourself lucky - we used to insist that everyone read the whole thread from the beginning and quiz them on it.  😂

Pizza beans?

White beans cooked in a pan with white wine, spices, garlic, diced onions, carrots, and kale, then baked with tons of cheese on top.

How about if your ds17 and I change places for a week.  He can homeschool my kids and make them dinner and I'll go to the Caribbean.

We had beef / bean tacos.  With fixins and nothing else because I was in such a tizzy over Lynette's pet-bed heater that I forgot to make a vegetable or salad.  I guess the toppings could count as a salad.  

The pet-bed heater had a stupid prong on the plug so I couldn't use it with the thing I had set up.  Dh found an extension cord that works, so it's OK now.

Snowflakes are now sitting next to 11pm and 12am.

We had the last (church) Children's Choir rehearsal for the season.  They sing this Sunday - Thanksgiving Sunday - instead of at Christmas which I am grateful for.

Be sure to check out any available properties suitable for the ITT Island.  :biggrin:

I'm so excited for you guys!

No, it's a trip we've been saving up points for and planning for years. We were going to go to Central/South America the spring before Baby was born before we knew he was coming and put it on hold because of Zika. We decided to go to the Caribbean instead with Baby because it feels safer and easier with a little one. If we waited for him to be older, I know DS (17) wouldn't go. I'm a little disappointed because I really, really, really, wanted to see Tikal, but even a small malaria risk is too much for me with someone who can't take a pill. 

The trip I won is to Hawaii and only for 2 people, but we can bring Baby at our own expense. I'm going to try to schedule that in Feb. The other kids are jealous but Baby isn't expensive to bring and they would be. 

I should win a trip for everyone to go to ITT Island!

I totally agree with you about not worth the Zika risk.

Dd14 is the only one of our kids that we took to Hawaii.  She was not quite 1 still nursing and I didn't know about the trip soon enough to wean her.

Dd16 and and ds18 were little and the cost/value ratio was not worth it.  They stayed with grandparents.

I’m back. I Awana-Ed.  I taught the lesson tonight. It went well, I had good object lessons.  We had dinner at church. Frito boats. They were really really good. The chili was superb. I’m not a huge fan of chili, but this was good.

What degree does he want?

My ds18 is majoring in criminal justice.

Dd14 wants to be a costume designer.

The rest don't yet know.

I can’t believe that it took me so long to figure out what is wrong with me. I accidentally took my morning meds at bedtime (because I had just filled my pill boxes). I realized right away and took my evening pills too minus duplicates that I take morning and night. But in the morning pills was a thyroid pill and I have been practically buzzing for the past two hours.
