A Lost Art...

When I was growing up Mom would iron everything from their jeans (it was the 70's) to Dad's hankies. I remember laying under the ironing board and feeling the spray starch mist over me as she was spraying the clothes. She taught me the correct way (correct to me cause that's how she does it) to iron a shirt.

I have not passed down that tradition to my children. Oh, I iron on occasion but it's not a weekly chore like back in the day. For most things the dryer and a wet washcloth works just fine for me.

As I was ironing today I just wonder...does anyone still iron??? Maybe I need to teach my kiddos the correct way to iron a shirt (and that's not throwing it in the dryer).

Marriage Weekend

This weekend at our church we had a "marriage" focus. Mike and Cindy Helvie shared with those of us that were there some thoughts on having a strong, growing marriage. It was really a great time. I wish more couples from the church would have been there. Jaye and I had the opportunity to hang out with some of our friends which is always a fun thing to do. One of the highlights was getting to share "our" story. When we met and started dating... Jaye had a "boyfriend" and was kinda off the market, she had no interest in dating a flirty guy like me. Well I'm glad it all worked out the way it did. Jaye is a fantastic wife and I'm very lucky to have her. Great weekend; thanks Mike and Cindy!

What do you think?

updated version 2

So what do you think? There are a couple of opinions around the house about this...one, the coolest youth group t-shirt idea ever in the history of youth group t-shirts, and one, the worst idea ever. Wondering what you think.

B-O-R-I-N-G....I haven't posted anything because there hasn't been anything EXCITING to share on the world wide web! My hubby says I've abandoned our blog for facebook. Feeling somewhat guilty, I guess I better update! After all I know we have blog readers out there that are not on facebook (why I ask??)

Life has become VERY disciplined at our house! Brian and I both have stuck ourselves back on the Atkins Diet. He LOVES it...all the meat you can eat. He is in beef jerky heaven and our dehydrators are getting the workout! I'm okay with it but I miss my breakfast of choice...oats or cereal! It'll be worth it :)

Not only can we not eat everything in sight...we can't BUY it either. We have started back up in the Financial Peace University. Brian and I are helping lead a seminar at our church. We have returned to the budgeting (wish we didn't fall away from it in the 1st place) and are working on the baby steps. We totally love this stuff...just takes a lot of discipline!

So Discipline...what doesn't kill ya will make you a stronger person! :)
