WE had home group tonight... it was GREAT! This is the first gathering we have had at our new house bedsides family. We had 15 people total over (including kids) and all fit comfortable in the living room and the kids upstairs playing. I was happy to give each couple a guided tour of our house. Believe you me.. I busted butt cleaning today for this event! My bedroom has never looked so good nor has my kids rooms. To my surprise the most compliments were on how nice of a size my utility room (laundry room) was and my master bedroom closet. I knew ever one would love how BIG my closete was but I was surprised by all the compliments on my laundr yroom. If I had known I may of spent more time cleaning that part of the house (it is where the kitty litter is and a pile of laundry baskets)
Josh is already teasing me about my pride.. but I think it is in check.. he just wants me to be that way lol. I give total glory to God for the awesome home he has given us and marvel at how he has worked it all out. But having some envious of us is somewhat nice for once, after living off what we did before.. not that we don't still live pay check to pay check (another entry for later for sure).
I was very uplifted by fellowship with others from my church. It seems when ever I have been running dry fellowship and talking about God quenches what ever thirst I may have. And besides there is always good food at home group.. lol Josh made chili and other brought BBQ chicken wings and yummy nummy brownies and cookies. (I neeeeeeeeeeed chocolate right now if you know what I mean)
I was somewhat sad that my new neighbors didn't show up. They were invited and had excepted the invitation. I know they were home. It was all I could do to stop myself from knocking on their door and asking them if they forgot. Their loss, not mine.. maybe they just plain forgot (all though with all the other cars in our drive way how could they miss the gathering?) Anyway... I had a wonderful time tonight and that is all that matters. My soul is resorted and I got to get to know more about my friends from church.
Now if I can just get a game of Bunko started in my hood I will feel like I have made it. (I have no clue what Bunko is.. from what I gather it is some clicky game some of the women I know play and it is hard to get inon LOL)
