Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

What I Did With Some Time Off

On Sunday L. took a couple of nasty tumbles in his soccer game. I wasn't there - I was working on some things at home and ready to take him to his last game at 5 o'clock. Hubby called though to say L. was hurting and wouldn't be going to the last game.

I called my principal and made arrangements online to have a sub. Monday morning so I could take L. to the Dr.

First thing Monday morning after taking M. to school, L. and I went to my classroom to get things in order. The appt. I was able to get for L. was 10:30, so we had some time - on the way home we stopped and got crickets for the gecko. Once Levi was resting comfortably and reading at home I took care of some online pharmacy business (I have to finish it today) and read a blog or two.

We were out of the Dr.'s by 11:20 - however, by 11:45 when we still hadn't been called for xrays at radiology - I called Hubby to come take over. I had to be back at school by 12:20 and needed to be there in the afternoon to administer tests.

L. has a strained AC joint, is still having some pain, but is expected to be okay in 3-4 weeks. Dr. said to be careful with rotation and not to over extend his shoulder which translates to L's soccer season is over. This is doubly sad to me - we had so many team difficulties and just this weekend, with breakfast before the tournament and a few wins, the team seemed to be geling better. L's sat out practice this week, but will make it to the local college game tonight where his team will be ball boys. We plan for L. to go to the last two regular season games too.

One question: Who would have thought giving a heating pad to a 9 y o boy would make him so excited? It was like getting a new video game.'s Fall Break! 5 whole days off. I worked like a mad woman yesterday afternoon grading, entering grades on the computer, doing lesson plans and cleaning up so I wouldn't bring any work home. I'm totally free! And totally (well maybe partially) sick - I lost my voice yesterday. I do intend to enjoy some blogs as long as I feel like sitting up. After all, this is my first non-daybook blog since starting work!


  1. So sorry we couldn't get together today!! PS, never be afraid to call and wake us up... thanks to M, I was up at 6:15 this morning! :-) I hope you feel better asap and can at least enjoy the weekend. And sorry about L's end to his soccer season... hope he heals quickly!

  2. Fall break? What is that? We didn't have a week off all at once except the coule weeks at Christmas and one for spring break. (Kids here don't get a fall break, but it seems like every couple weeks there is either a day off or early dismissal. We just keep on trekking along in my house...) Well, I hope you all enjoy your week off.

    I hope L heals fast! That's really sad and we'll be praying for him!


Would love for you to share. Thanks for being a part of Our Ordinary Life.
