Robert just said my blog is boring. I said, “you are.”
I snagged Brandi’s camera today in order to bring you a picture page (and Aimee asked to see my new haircut, so here you go). I also bought a new swimsuit today. Here is a picture:
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “My Angie, you sure do look GOOOOD just nine months after having the baby.” You should know by now that’s not me. I came down the stairs to model my new swim skin to Robert, and said, “How does it look?” He said, “Nice.” “You need to get a tan.” Thanks, babe. Not all of us are blessed with skin the color of a paper bag.
So, today I went to the pool for the first time this summer! Brandi and I goofed off with one of her stalker friends. Mostly I just clung to the edge of the pool because I’m not the best um…swimmer. Let’s just say that my motto is “Anything you can do in the pool, I can do better, with one hand holding my nose.” Brandi’s motto for the day was, “Balancing on the edge of the pool only counts if you don’t use your boobs as counterweight.” Whatever. You play your way I’ll play mine.
After dinner, Brandi, Bob, Tammy, Nila and I headed to Canal Winchester to check out a new restaurant called Del Mar. It supposes itself to be BAJA Mexican. Bob and I were stoked because, while in California, we fell in in love with a little chain joint called Rubio’s, and wondered if this place might be kin to it. It wasn’t kin to Rubio’s at all. It was kin to Taco Hell. Ugh. A complete waste of our time. BUT, they did have sweet tea which was unexpected, so the trip wasn’t a total waste.
We got home about an hour and a half after Nila’s bedtime, so we hurriedly put in her into bed (which pretty much worked again tonight, YAY!). As she was lying there sleeping, I thought about how God sent Jesus to us as a baby. I don’t really have any profound thoughts about it, but I realized that this was the first time I’d considered this since Nila was born. Looking at her and thinking, “Hm. God came as a baby. He came and lived with us just like Nila came to live with us. Hm. Wonder if God wants to say something to me through her.”
Who is God speaking through to you these days?
