1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on gasoline. We have been spending less now that we got rid of J’s gas-guzzling Buick.

2. Today I am thankful that Irene was not as bad as predicted… at least not here, anyways. I hope everyone everyone in the north is safe and away from the floods!

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was dance with my family at a celebration party for my uncle. He served as the senior pastor for a long time, and his last service ended with a great party before he and my aunt leave to sail for a year (doesn’t that sounds amazing?). My whole family came, minus a few cousins, but it was so much fun to celebrate together!

4. I will consider this week a success if I cook something at home every evening. I’ve gotten very slack about putting meals together at home, since our evenings are so busy. In fact, one evening last week J and I only ate cereal for dinner. (I know, I’m a bad wife!)

5. The thing I will miss most when summer is over are the long sunny days. I absolutely love autumn, but I hate how dark it gets in the evenings. I am really going to miss waking up to the sun and having hours of sunlight after work is over.
