Where is the time going?

I can't believe the summer is gone. We didn't do a whole lot, but we have been busy busy. Sometimes to the point of being so overwhelmed, I just want to crawl in a cave, but have a computer too!

I went and saw a friend two weekends ago, and she knows me oh too well. She asked me, "So, how's Stacey doing?". My usual answer - "Fine". Then later she says, "I am asking you for the third time, How is Stacey doing?". Sometimes you just don't know how to answer! I keep thinking about Chris talking about that little bubble that I put up around me and close the world off. Now sometimes I really don't even realize that I do it.

Okay, first I am not stressed (well not alot - ha ha). I have found my 3rd and 4th gray hair this week. Which is very WHAM - life is catching up with you!!! I did find the first one the day after Amber's 25th birthday. But I must admit to be 44 and just getting gray hair is not so bad!

Now if Miss Bernadine could see me, she could mean what she told me about 10 years ago. When we went back to visit our first church, she noticed that I colored my hair, her comment - "The only reason you color your hair is to cover the gray". Of course that wasn't the only thing that she was brassy about - the first time I met her she said, "Your alot bigger than the last preacher's wife." "Wow" I thought, but said to her, "Well she must not enjoy food as much as I do!" (keep in mind I was a size 14 at the time - just barely a plus size...oh to be there now...)

May I add that being a preacher's wife is very interesting at times.

Hope you are having a good week, it's the last one before school starts for us.

Catch you later, and hopefully it won't be so long.
