No, not weaning Ethan. Weaning myself from the computer for awhile.

I will be around here and there, but I am trying to concentrate on the important things. In particular, one thing. "But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her." Luke 10:42

I am re-ordering my priorities. Putting "that which will not be taken away" at the top of my list and putting everything else under that.
1. God
2. Hubby
3. Kids
4. House
5. Church
6. everything else.

I caught up with all my blog reading tonight and my commenting. I am very behind on all my email. I will work on it a bit more, but please forgive me if I haven't answered you.

We have doctors appointments everyday this week and we are getting Brittany ready for her mission trip which starts next week. We only have nursing on and off right now because, besides not having a nurse for one night anyway, one of our nurses is dealing with a family member dying, so she is not able to always come. Michael has a "bigwig" coming this week, so he needs his sleep. We threw a mattress on Kaedy's floor and Ethan and I will be staying there.

I am working on a lot of stuff for school right now. If you are interested, you can check out my other blog and see what's going on. I need to spend some time planning and scheduling next year.

With all this going on, I need to tear myself away from the computer and get working on the important stuff. It's a real challenge for me because I love the internet, always have, but it is even more appealing now that I have been introduced to the world of blogging. :-)

As I said, I will still be around, just not as much, at least until Britty goes on her mission trip. Then I'll either have more free time or NO free time because I will be chasing all the little ones myself! LOL

I will listen to the song tonight. I have been a lurking praying blog friend. I have gotten much going on(not that my life is any more important) but I understand with you.

Please don't forget that I am praying for you and yours even if you do not hear from me!
Lots of (hugs)

It is sometimes hard to choose the good part, but I am working on it, too :) !! Good luck! You will be missed.

Enjoy your planning time and don't forget to stop and smell the "raisin-ness".

You and your family remain in my prayers.

I feel like a total heathen now...

May you be blessed in choosing the Good thing!

Great priority list. I will be praying for you when you have to chase the little ones all by yourself:)
I will also be praying for her mission trip, how wonderful.
