Sitting alone at work

I am sitting here all by myself at work.  All the guys are at a conference in South Carolina.  Lucky for me, I am not directly involved in construction.  I just do the paperwork!  So, now I sit, alone watching the cast of Jersey Shore on Chelsea Lately.  Have you seen these people?  I love it.  I have no idea why, but I do.  I wonder though, are they really like this or does everything that happens on "reality tv" written on a script.?  I don't know, back when this whole genre came out, it just seemed more real.  Now it seems just too outlandish. 

My 30th birthday is this summer and I already feel old.  We recently purchased a new vacuum and I was totally excited!  My goodness is that a GREAT invention.  I have always been hesitant about expensive vacuums but man does it suck up the dirt.  We bought the all floor model because we have an equal amount of hardwood and carpet.  I have never, ever owned a vacuum that works on bare floors.  It always spits it right back out the back.  It also has this awesome stair attachment.  I did the stairs last night in about 10 minutes.  It used to be so hard.  It is also very light.  I used to struggle getting the stupid thing up the stairs but not anymore.  It has picked up so much dirt out of our house I can't believe that it has ever been vacuumed!  Here is my gorgeous new toy.  Like I said, feeling a little older lately!

I know we have all heard about the earthquake in Haiti.  I can't even imagine what it would be like to live off of $2 a day.  Now these people have less than nothing!  Please pray for them.   There are many different ways that people can help.  You can even text HAITI to 90999 and make a $10 donation that will help the people of that poor country.  It is a ligit way to contribute and AT&T has reported that they have received more than $4 million as of today.  Isn't that awesome!  God is really pulling people together.  Make sure to thank Him for all that he has given us.  I have and I do daily!

Okay, so that is all I have for now.  Steven has a pancake breakfast tomorrow at our church and we are planning on going there in the morning and then who knows.  I wish you all a great weekend!
