I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Life without internet

So, we have been tearing out most of our floors in the upstairs of our house, and are getting ready to tile. It is a really great thing. Our house is over 50 years old. I absolutely adore our house, but there are a lot of things that need fixing up. Our hardwood floor was starting to warp and pull apart at the seams. We got a bid on a tile job, and it was not as expensive as we thought, so we decided to use the money from selling our van and redo the floors.
Well, in the process of tearing out floors, we had to disconnect our computer. At first , Bruce would bring his laptop home, so I could still check my facebook, blog, etc. Well Saturday, the internet line accidentally got cut, so we have not had internet. At first it was absolutely driving me crazy. But, I discovered that I was getting so much done without the time wasting activity I do on the internet. My goal is that when we get reconnected, to really moniter the time I spend surfing. Will I still be on facebook? Yes. Will I still blog? Yes. I will just try to balance my time better.
