Random Updates

It's time for some random updates about the Carswells. Just because I know all of you out there are so very interested.

  1. Clayton's "word of the day", every day is "uh-oh". I have no idea why. Anytime he drops something, which is a lot, he says it. If he falls down, he says it. If he throws something he know he shouldn't, he says it. And, he says it randomly and for no reason. Well, no reason that Chad and I know about.
  2. I have started buying groceries every week. Don't laugh. This is a major accomplishment for me. I have trouble deciding anything, especially what we are going to eat for a week. And, to have to decide ahead of time is a major chore for me. But, I'm getting much better.
  3. We made pizzas in youth on Sunday. That was a lot of fun. The pizzas were great too. Thanks Fords.
  4. I have lost 12 pounds since 1/1/09. I'm pleased with that. It should be better, but I haven't been exercising at all. Many excuses, none of them good.
  5. I have read 8 books since 1/1/09. They are all in a series, and I think I have finished the series to date. Hopefully there will be more soon. I love to read, and I do most of my reading on my lunch break.
  6. Chad has finished school for this year. Only one more to go, and he will have a master;s degree. YIPPIE!!
  7. Clayton is still trying to walk, not quite ready to let go just yet. He has started to throw things too. He likes to take all of his bath tub toys and throw them out of the bathtub, and then wait for Chad and me to throw them back. We did this for about 30 minutes last night. The floor was completely flooded, but he had fun.
  8. I will finish my Women of Faith devotion book tonight. It's been titled "Living Above Worry and Stress". Perfect for me. Then to beat it all, that's what Daddy preached about on Sunday evening. If God feeds the sparrows, and care for the grass of the field, then He will surely care for me since I am His child. I know this, why do I not always live like it?
  9. Which study should I do next? Contagious Joy, Managing Your Moods, of Encouraging Others? I'm afraid I need them all, desperately.
  10. I'm ready for summer. Not just spring, but summer too. I do not like winter at all. I know it's necessary, but I don't care for it. Too cold.

I told you this was random. Have a great day y'all.

"Consider the lillies they don't toil nor spin and there's not a king with more splendor than them. Consider the sparrow they don't plant nor sew but their fead by the master who watches them grow..
we have a heavenly father above with eyes full of mercy and a heart full of love. he really cares when your head is bowed low, consider the sparrow and then you will know"

your blog reminded me of that song. and also you can thank dennis avery carswell for the "uh-oh" hahaha.. that was all his fault. i think Clayton says it randomly because my dad does hahaha.

I love you guys !! hahaha.

"Uh-Oh" is because he is 1.You did it, Jesse did and all babies do it. It is all part growing up. He would not be normal if he was not doing it. It will not be long until it is "why". so get ready, you just have to endure.
