Yes, I'm escaping.

I'm off to White Cloud, Kansas for a kid free, drama free weekend with my darling husband and some friends.

There will be nothing but adult conversation, a little drinking, a little gambling, a lot of eating and tons of fun!

Look out, White Cloud because here we come!

I know I've posted in the past what my daily plan is to be. I've shared what my future intentions are in regard to plans to go here or plans to get this done.

Today, I'm pondering what my life plan is. I'm not talking about who do I want to be when I grow up.

I'm referring to what sort of person do I want to be from today forth.

I've been struggling lately because of the "hand" that I've been "dealt" this year. Where I am now is completely different than where I had planned six months ago.

Why is this? Has God planned something for me that I just don't know about?

How do I see what this plan is and know that what I think I'm seeing is what truly is?

I had an incident take place late last night with some friends. They're struggling in their relationship and I've been watching it for a while now but I've kept out of it.

Until last night.

I blew up and let it all out. My feelings. My knowledge (because I've been in their shoes).

I woke up hopeful this morning. I was thinking that maybe this was God's plan for me. I was to help them through this time period in their lives with the knowledge I've gained through the years. It felt good.

Then something else happened this morning. There's no helping them because one thing happened and everything I shared with them went out the window.

They are right back where they started.

Did I misread God's plan? I somehow misunderstood?

I'm so sad over this.

Does God have a plan for us but his plan for someone else intercepts it?

I just don't know anymore.

We enjoyed a good weekend.

We went to SantaCaliGon Festival in Independence, MO.

We cooked out.

We (the adults) drank a few drinks.

We sat outside with neighbors.

We cooked out some more.

We even drank a little more.

The Teenager enjoyed brotherly love time with his youngest furry brother.

And he enjoyed some time with his not-so-furry younger brother. (This is a rare thing to see these days since they're normally arguing about something)

They shared silly bands.

We even got to see this. Isn't it adorable?

I think if I had a Volkswagon Bus, this is how I would paint it too. Complete with surf boards on top!


I love Labor Day.

It means:

a day off work.

an end to a hot summer.

kids are back in school.

things are back to a normal routine.

I should have slept in.

I want to make the most of an extra day off so I'm up.

I think I'll make a good breakfast for my loved ones.

Fall's right around the corner and I LOVE LOVE LOVE fall!

What does Labor Day mean for you?
