Graduate School, Babies, and Eavesdropping

We are in the final countdown for graduate school classes ending. Three weeks........
I think I hate Dh's graduate school classes as much as Dh does.

Yesterday I cleaned Miss E's room. Before you think, "Wow she is setting herself up for a life of servitude and lazy kids," let me tell you I did it for a specific reason. She had a lot of trash in her room. Obscene amounts of trash. Crumbled leaves, at least thirty scribbled-on post-it notes, stickers ripped off paper, ripped up papers, cheap McDon@lds toys. If she cleaned the room, she would fight me to the death to keep all of that garbage. So I cleaned her room (it only took about fifteen minutes) and filled up a grocery sack with very small pieces of junk.

I have done almost nothing constructive today. Does going through my Google Reader count? I got up at 6:45 with the kids and JDub said (whilst chatting on FB) that counts as work right there. And I fed the kids, as opposed to giving them bowls of dry cereal and sippy cups of milk and calling it good. Which of course I have never, ever done.

I watched Babies on Stephanie Nielson's recommendation, and I loved it. It did not make me baby crazy, though. I know there is one more baby waiting to join our family, but I do not feel ready for said baby to pop in just yet.

And when I went to see Babies, I went to the movies by myself for the first time. Which I have always been scared to do. EK did it, so I figured it must not be awful. And it wasn't! I brought my knitting, and eavesdropped on other people's conversations, which I have always enjoyed doing. The three sisters in front of me were encouraging each other not to be like Gigi. It was really hard not to laugh out loud.

I've neer been to the movies by myself. I've always wanted to do that, though.

I hope these final 3 weeks of DH's graduate school go very quickly! Early congrats to him!

Going out with my husband and friends is my fav thing to do but getting out on your can be so refreshing. You don't have to anybody but yourself. That is totally funny that you took your knitting.

If You Died Today, Are You 100% Sure You Would Go To Heaven When You
Die or the Rapture Comes?

1. You Are A Sinner.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

2. There Is A Price On Sin.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
second death." Revelation 20:14

3. Jesus Shed His Precious Blood on the Cross and Died To Pay For Your Sins.
"But God commendeth His love toward us in that while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
Luke 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,
Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

4. Salvation Is Not Of Our Works. It Is Through Jesus Christ.
"But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the
ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Romans 4:5

5. God Wants To Save You If You Will Just Put Your Trust In Him.
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Romans 10:13

A sample prayer you may pray:

Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve to die
and go to Hell. I believe that You died for me on the Cross and after
three days and three nights You arose from the dead so that I could be
saved. Jesus, You promised in your Word to save any who call upon the
name of the Lord. Jesus, I am calling upon your name now. Please save
me, Jesus, and take me to Heaven someday to live with you forever!
Thank You for saving me, Jesus. Amen.
