Fresh Fridays

My vision for Friday posts was to keep it low-key and personal - maybe a funny Jadon story... or a general synopsis of life for our family.  We'll see what it turns into.  

This week was a little exhausting, due to my teething toddler... We also had more snow!  We have 6 foot piles in our front yard.  I took Jadon out in the snow for a bit and got a chance to talk with our neighbor and her daughters (a rare thing in New England, as everyone seems to hibernate when the cold weather hits).  

I wrote this when we got our first major storm this month... and every time I think to erase it we get another storm!  (By the way, this chalkboard was a cute thrift store grab for $1!  More to come about this little treasure in the near future!)
Truth be told, I was about at my wit's end when Andy came home last night.  It was apparent that we needed some family time out of the house, so off we went to a favorite (and cheap) source of entertainment for our family - basically the biggest, craziest furniture store you've probably ever seen.  It includes a Fuddrucker's restaurant, Verizon store, Paul's TV, Home Depot, IMAX Theater, a liquid fireworks display, and - oh yeah - Richardson's Ice Cream.  Yes, after an 8 minute drive and $2.96 spent (for a bowl of ice cream that we shared), our family was recharged, and, most importantly, Mom had regained some of her sanity.  

That has about been the highlight of my week - and praise be to God who gives us those precious moments to remind us that even when we feel we are losing control, God is still in control.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, 
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.  
They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright. 
Psalm 20:7-8

Hope you have a great weekend!
