What a wonderful weekend!  Nothing happened!  We had a great New Moon ritual with about half of our group.  Some were unable to make the drive this time (I'm amazed and grateful that any of them ever do) and some were BUSY HAVING A BABY!!  We're so excited that little Morgaine is here.  All 9 lbs, 15oz of her!

Yesterday was very laid back and uneventful, which for us is a miracle.  A great weekend (after the week we had last week) is when no crisis erupts.

Now I'm ready for the peace.

Today was up and down.  For the most part, it was peaceful and lovely.  Eric is working a bit and also went by the title company to give them the extra money they decided they needed for closing costs.  That means with any luck, the sale will close today.  It will be good to have that behind us.  We're also closer to the end of the month, when Eric will finally be paid for the work he's been doing for the past couple of months.  I am praying that after that, the financial struggles will be behind us.  I dream about a time of not having to sweat out every moment from one cent to the next.

I can't imagine what that would be like. 

I don't want to imagine.  I want to live it.

Joe and Sandra are having a wonderful time in Disneyland and I'm so glad for that.  I've never seen two people enjoy 'The Land' as much.

Yesterday was my sweet Joshua's birthday.  He's 22.  :)

Had both kids home from school today.  Dylan is suspended from the bus and Eric knew he would be working until past time to pick him up.  We don't know anyone else up here.  Delena had back woman cramps and has spent the day in bed.  It's so hard when your body is first figuring out what it's trying to do.

Not much to say today.  Just ushering in a time of peace, joy, miracles and rest.  The last couple of months have been even more crazy than usual and I look forward to the lovely, incoming energy.

Meanwhile, here are some fun things.

Run your mouse over the bears then watch them rebuild.  Karen says there's a ton of awesome stuff on the main site for this link.

I may have printed this before.  Need speakers.  Made me laugh.

And a good joke:

At the station, the three men each buy a ticket and watch as the three women buy just one ticket.

"How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket?" asks one of the men.

"Watch and learn," answers one of the women.

They all board the train. The three men take their respective seats but all three women cram into a toilet together and close the door.

Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets.  He knocks on the toilet door and says, "Ticket, please."

 The door opens just a crack, and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand.

The conductor takes it and moves on.

The men see this happen and agree it was quite a clever idea; so, after the game, they decide to do the same thing on the return trip and save some money.

When they get to the station they buy a single ticket for the return trip but see, to their astonishment, that the three women don't buy any ticket at all!!

"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed man.

"Watch and learn," answer the women.

When they board the train, the three men cram themselves into a toilet,  and the three women cram into another toilet just down the way.

Shortly after the train is on its way, one of the women leaves her toilet and walks over to the toilet in which the men are hiding.

The woman knocks on their door and says, "Ticket, please."

Have a wonderful week.  Let's all work together to bring in the good stuff!

Much love,
