O Happy Day

To borrow a phrase from Whoopie Goldberg in Sister Act (a very entertaining funny movie, I might add), today is a great day:

Today is Good Friday, the day that Jesus was crucified for our sins, however horrible of an ordeal He had to suffer, He did this for all of us, including you, so that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life.

THIS IS MY 100th POST!!!!!

Sam decided today to call off work (to spend the day with ME). He rarely ever calls off work and to do it because of ME, makes me feel really special.

We got up at our regular time (6:00 A.M.) we didn't sleep in.

He took me out to breakfast.

On the way to breakfast we picked up a LARGE CLEAR bag full of toys including a swing with the chain included and the chain is even covered in the protective coating so no fingers get pinched, AND it was in good condition, for Blake's swing set (OK, yes, we,..well *I* dumpster dived) but I know the people and she said last night when I stopped to take all I wanted. :-) Last night we stopped and loaded up a sand table that the kids will have fun with, minus 2 legs. More on this stuff in another post.

Over breakfast, Sam told me that his customer where he has been consulting has extended him 2 more weeks. (this is his 3rd extension). (He's been working contract for this customer since Jan of 2008)

My sister and brother-in-law are on their way here for a few days.

Tonight at church there will be at least 30 individuals getting baptized.

When Jennifer came over this morning to get that big plastic bag from the garbage (above) Sam and I decided to keep Jayde for a few hours while she went to work. It was great having JUST "Jayde time". (But I thought we were going to break Blake's heart, he is the one that gets to stay here w/o Jayde all the time). To my delight he was a just a tad sad but Jennifer said he could come back and ride his new bike after she was done working.
