Seriously, This is Not Happening

Chris and I are in the twilight zone today. I am not kidding. We are in the middle of moving so we have half of our house (kitchen and food) at our new one and the other half (beds and clothes) at the old one. I think I am losing my mind.

Annie has been sick for over a week now, and she WILL NOT sleep. Yesterday, Max joined her on the "out of commission" list. So this morning I had planned to take Max, Annie, and a carload of things to the new house and then run a few errands that we needed done before small groups at church tonight. Well, my car would not start. GREAT. I called Chris and he came home from work to jump my car. The only problem was, that while his car was jumping mine, his ran out of gas. We now have two cars sitting in our driveway not working, and my husband is jogging to the gas station. Right before Chris left for his jog, he runs in the room and says, "I am going to take my book with me so I can prepare to lead my small group." He is going to take his book jogging to the gas station?? I think that goes beyond great time management to desperation.

Oh well, like Chris says, "We get 365 days a year, we can't expect them all to be smooth." That's for sure!! :)

It sure is a battle today with the enemy, but he is not taking this day. "Today is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it"...no matter how many things go wrong at the Brown house :).

My heart kinda hurt for you as I read this...although it does sound funny because it's craziness, I know that was challenging. Sick kids make everything harder, I hope Annie feels better soon. I pray that life settles down for you soon so you can take a breather!
