1. I wasn't going to do this today, but it's becoming sort of a routine and it's lazier than vacuuming so here I am.
2. I'm currently not even sure if Mary is home or not. My afternoon involved riding with Madi to St Patrick's (she drove), driving from there to Jake's school, driving from the school home to drop Jake and the neighbor off, driving back to St Pat's to get Madi, she then drove to the theatre. I ran in to talk to Jonathan for a sec then drove back home to get Jake. This time I came in the house for about 5 minutes, then I drove Jake back to the theatre. (Then I came home.) In less than an hour I will drive back to the theatre to pick up Jake as well as another boy that we need to drive home. Then I will drop Jake off at a bon fire/ pizza / s'mores gathering that he is going to with friends from school, THEN Mike and I are using our $20 off at OUTBACK!! Yay! Not sure why I found the need to relive all of that, it was almost as exhausting the second time as the first.
3. Mike took my car to work today which means with all of the driving I was missing my Catholic channel on satellite radio and my seat warmer (the temp has gotten no where near 60 today). In exchange I did have Barry Manilow blaring when I was alone, and kids to chat with when I wasn't.
4. Jake had his school spelling bee yesterday. In spite of not being a natural speller, he did well. I noticed that being comfortable on the stage with a microphone in hand goes a long way. He got out the round before the winner, so he made it respectable.
6. Ok driving all over creation, meatballs, seems like I've covered just about everything.
7. I spent most of Wednesday watching EWTN's coverage of the March for Life. I've never really been a huge activist, but I think I'm getting there. Madi and I are hoping to go to the march next year. And speaking of activism, I'm starting it with this comment.
Julie Trahan Scaringella I've been thinking about this all night. Sadly there are Catholics / prolifers who are hateful, and the stereotype is even worse. That is not the teaching of the church though, nor does it describe most people. I spent most of yesterday watching the coverage of the march on EWTN, and have my car tuned to Catholic Radio. It is said that abortion leaves one dead and one (or more) wounded. It is our job to love the wounded, we are called to compassion, mercy, and prayer. We shouldn't be quiet about our beliefs. This is how we dislike the sin and love the sinner. The amount of youths at the march was awesome, Madi and I are hoping to go next year.
The cat is officially out of the bag as far as my not using our last names on here, not sure who I was trying to hide from anyway.
