I'm getting ready for my marathon the next 3 days! I don't know why everything has to fall all together! The most crazy part will be tomorrow when I'm watching my niece and nephew for the day. We have MOPS in the morning, so they'll be all good and zipped up. Then we're going to Jordan Creek to celebrate a birthday...$1 menu at Wendy's, here we come! Then this part really scares me--my niece, the birthday girl, gets to pick out a bear at Build-a-Bear, make and dress it--while the other 4 "contently" watch. We'll see. I have no extra cash for extra bears, so I may have to bribe them with bubble gum.
Maybe if I weren't so fried about what I see on the news, I wouldn't be in such a toot that my schedule is so busy. I could have taken the time to sit and read my Bible, place it all in God's hands, and peacefully ride it all out...instead I'm stewing about the ACLU investigating if any illegal immigrants' working "rights" were broken during the last raid. Seriously, they hopped a fence, stole an identity, and are here ILLEGALLY, I don't think they have very many rights. Then I feel bad because how should I, as a Christian feel...I don't know and now I'm too busy to work it all out in my head! Any thoughts?
I've gotta run! I think I need to spend a little time with someone else!

Love the picture!! I agree with you on the immigration issue. It's hard to know how to feel. They're illegal and that's wrong, end of story. But what do we do NOW? Throw them back and let them come back legally? Or keep them and not let them work again until they've gone through the whole process of getting citizenship? It makes me feel bad for the immigrants who have worked so hard at going through the process the correct way and gotten citizenship when so many others do it the wrong way. I don't know.
Anyways, have a great day prepping for your big day tomorrow!
