Weekend Ramblings and Living in Guilt

We finally completed our taxes yesterday after a 3 hour session with the accountant. Unfortunately, when I reviewed everything this morning I realized we had made a deduction which should not have been listed. Therefore, I guess I will be making yet another appointment in the morning to re-do the taxes. Why can't life ever be easy?

Yesterday did turn out to be a good day. We enjoyed a much needed visit from the brother, SIL, and Carsyn!

Carsyn and Robby
This photo was actually from a couple of weeks ago, but I forgot my camera yesterday. 
I love this picture because she was just staring at Robby (which he loves)!

It rained all day yesterday, but the weather was warm...I think 60 degrees at 11 pm last night. Imagine our surprise when we woke up with an inch of snow! How can that even happen! Please.....Winter GO AWAY!
Needless to say, I have been completely worthless today. The only time I have been off the couch was to bathe myself at about 6 pm. I's pathetic.

I am also feeling pretty guilty right now. All day, I have been dreading going back to work tomorrow. For the past 2 weeks, I have complained almost daily about being tired and staying late at work. I have been exhausted, but I am so fortunate to have a job....a very good job. Right now, a new show Secret Millionaire is on TV. The show began at 8 pm and I started crying at about 8:05. The show has featured two 80+ year old women living in Knoxville, TN, who started cooking for the homeless or those in need over 20 years ago. They serve over 2000 meals per week in the Love Kitchen. After seeing all those people who have a warm meal because two women chose to give them hope, I am overcome with guilt for complaining about a job that so many others would be so grateful to have. Those exceptional women have changed the lives of so many because their hearts are where they should be, embracing God's will.

  1. Omg! You have to go back to the acct??? Do I need to ship you a case of wine??
    I had a lazy day too, which makes me feel guilty. I wanted to watch secret millionaire, but forgot about it.
