March 18th

Tonight whilst I was frittering away time at  stuff mart, I chose 2 isles to meander down. The first one was the bra isle. Why I chose that? Well the daughter needed some smaller ones so, since I was already there, I thought that I would see how far that section had come in the last 10 years or so that I had purchased them at stuffmart. They have come a long way. Bra’s in every color known to man….wired, stuffed, embroidered, laced and plain. You name it, they had it. I was particularly drawn to one brand called “sweet nothings” This tickled me because they were all padded.

The second isle that I was drawn to was the frozen food isle. I have been craving ice cream, but to get to the ice cream, I had to go down the frozen veggies. I want to know why white corn costs $2 more than yellow corn? Also, they have these new things out that you take the bag out of the freezer, throw it….bag and all…into the microwave and it steams them for you. All for the low….low price of $3 for 2 servings. Talk about a rip off!!!! Buy a steamer insert! They are only $4. Get a Pampered Chef steamer….they are $9. Then do your own. They also had this wonderful looking lasagna in a 9×7″ box. Do you know what it said??? 5 servings!!! omg2.gif 5???? I could eat half the box myself……without a second thought! sheesh! Back to the ice cream. I generally make my own or get the $1.69 half gallon at Aldi……did you know that stuffmart doesn’t have $1.69 half gallons of ice cream? They do have peppermint fudge, coffee fudge, caramel swirl, candy cone, fruity stuff, and then they have more varieties of vanilla than I could comprehend! I didn’t get any, but it sure was fun looking!

Saturday, the daughter and I went to Peebles. She had a gift card from Christmas for there….and they were having a red dot sale~~read 60% off. So in we went. She tried on skirt after skirt. She settled on this one. im0009201.JPG ok…ok!! You can’t see the skirt. It is a tan corduroy skirt. Guess the size…….just guess!!! 0….it is a size 0!

The boy starts his job tomorrow. He is so happy to have a job. Saturday morning he got his bike down from the hooks in the storage closet, and greased the chain, let all the “stale” air out of the tires and pumped “fresh” back in.

Now for our tongue lesson….ugh! This is so convicting!

25. The accusing Tongue

Have you ever charged someone with wrongdoing before you established evidence of his guilt? We certainly don’t like that done to us, do we? When you do charge someone wrongly, without proper evidence, you fall into the same pattern as Satan, the official accuser of God’s Children. Emotional and spiritual maturity dictates that you must seek first to understand, rather than making an accusation.

Matthew 18:15~~Moreover if a brother shall trespass against you, go and tell HIM his fault between you and him alone; if he hears you, then you have gained a brother

26. The Discouraging Tongue

Have you ever dampened someone’s hope, confidence, or enthusiasm by raising objections th his proposed plans? An untold number of people have missed their potential because of someone’s discouraging words. Make a conscious effort to always speak sincere words of affirmation, support and inspiration to those with whom you speak.

Job 29:24~~When they were discourage, I smiled at them; my look of approval was precious to them.

  1. Ok, I confess. I buy the frozen veggies that you throw into the microwave bag and all. I love them. They are the perfect size for us they actually taste pretty good. I do get them at the commissary, though.

    Your daughter looks very pretty. I love new clothes!

  2. I agree with Tressa, the girl does look very pretty. (But if that poor girl loses any more weight she won’t show up in photographs!)

    How cute is greasing the chain, letting the stale air out of the tyres and pumping them up with fresh…..such a male thing to do. 😆

  3. Awwww, Kirs looks so cute and so sweet!!! She’s got the nicest smile. I wish she and Linz could meet in person. I just know they’d get along!

    Tell Dean I hope he has a wonderful first day on the job. How funny about the stale air and the fresh air in the tires!!!!!!!!!!! LOLOLOL

    Hope you’re doing good!

  4. Tanya…She is in a 0? Any word yet on test that have been run?

    I can relate to the discouraging tongue…When I was in Bible College…the Dean of Students always brought the freshman in one by one for personal interviews…along with that we had to write a testimony that related to our growing up.
    He looked at me and said,”You will never graduate. You won’t finish school.” I was so stunned and hurt…I walked out of his office and cried. I didn’t finish school but it was because God had another plan…I dropped out to take care of my mother who was in a car accident and paralysed 75% of her body at the time…there was no one else to do it.
    I have always wanted to go back and finish, but for the wrong reasons…because of what he said and what my IL’s said.
    Yes…that kind of discouragement can be life altering and stay with a person for the rest of their life.

  5. Kirs is beautiful. 🙂 You’ll have to tell us how Dean does on his first day. Too bad we can’t ALL go there for lunch. 😀

    Funny about Wal-Mart. They say they are a discount store. LOL

  6. Kirs looks so beautiful. Samantha is the same way in clothes. She is soooo skinny. It is hard to even find skirts for her.

    I hope Dean has a good first day on his job.

    And I don’t want to leave you out, I hope you are doing good too.

  7. Hello Mrs. Tanya. I was so excited when I got your letter. The girl is beautiful. I was sorry to hear about all that is happening. My prayers are with you and the family.
    I’m excited for the boy. Congrats and good luck on his first day.

  8. White corn costs more because there is less of it grown. People still have it in their heads that good corn should be peaches & cream colour but the baby white is very nice just not mass produced.

    Your daughter looks wonderful. Don’t you just hate buying size “0”. Its so hard to find ( at least it is here) and usually expensive. Looks like you got some good deals.

    Did you do good on the bra shopping? Number one pet peave is bra shopping. They never fit!
