Five on Friday


My week…

1.) For the most part this has been another busy week. Not quite as busy as the last two, but still a lot going on with the house stuff.

2.) Our ad for the current house was in the bulletin board this week. They left off the price that we included, so despite the fact that we had several phone call, several of them were simply people asking the price.

3.) I worked in the church nursery on Sunday night. Our small group is on Wednesday nights this year, so I volunteered to help out with the kids of the adult groups that meet on Sundays. I have to admit I was a little bit nervous; I really didn’t know what to expect or even how many. I know Evan likes me, but I have doted on him since the day he was born and we have become good buddies. Faithers likes me, but with a title like “Fun Aunt Lori” what choice did she have? I guess just the idea of whether or not I could win over a new kid or possibly multiple new kids had me a little anxious. Well, I’m happy to report it was only me and Baby Andrew, and I think by the end of the night I had convinced him I was alright to hang out with.

4.) Daylight Savings Time. I think I’m pretty well adjusted to the new time. I’m typically a good sleeper, so I will pretty much sleep anytime I can – regardless of what my body is used to. I do have to say that this was the second year in a row that our stupid “smart clocks” have messed us up. Last week I was in the shower getting ready for church, and Nathan came running up the stairs yelling, “They did it to us again! It’s 9:30!” We managed to make it to church on time, but I have to say this is getting a little annoying. I really think the clock companies should offer some kind of recall or update.

5.) Flashback Friday. With Halloween being this week, I thought it might be fun to do a little flashback to last year.



I just can’t believe how much she’s grown. Slow down, Faithers – slow down!
