Which leads me to my next question...why am I so forgetful these days?
A few weeks ago, I purchased a bunch of Easter candy for the girls' Easter baskets. Last week, I re-purchased a bunch of Easter candy for the girls' Easter baskets. I discovered my duplication upon smuggling my second purchase into the house to hide in my super secret hiding place.
There are other instances with which I won't bore you. But some days, I feel like I'm losing my mind...

In this astounding video, American composer and conductor Eric Whitacre spliced together nearly 250 videos of individuals singing individual parts of "Lux Arumque." He sent out the music, auditioned the singers, and then chose 250 of the submitted videos, which he spliced together to form this "virtual choir."
As I watched in wonder, I could not help thinking of how Christ our Mediator gathers His people's praises from every church and every believer in the world every Sunday and presents them, as a perfect choir, to His Father.
Then my mind went further and "I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; and cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb."

This morning, I got, ahem, a little heated over a spilled humidifier tank. I had asked the girls not to touch it. Of course, there was an accident -- truly, just an accident. It spilled and dumped a bunch of water onto the carpet. I didn't react well. I yelled (which I just HATE doing). I immediately felt convicted about it and asked the girls' forgiveness. Ilsa then drew this picture for me. The frowning faces represent me. They are crossed out. The smiley face represents how I SHOULD be.

Last week, Ilsa decided to make her own figure skates out of aluminum foil, and skate through the kitchen (while the Olympics were fresh in her mind). Note her fuzzy, ice rink-appropriate sweatshirt, and too-short nightgown that looks like a skating dress.

The iMac is in the mail. I am so done with PCs. When this laptop bites it, we'll replace with a Macbook.
Now, a shameless plug for the man who fixed our laptop: if you live anywhere in the Almost Mexico, AZ area, please contact David Roberts at D & S Wholesalers for your PC repair, web design or software needs. He got the job done quickly, thoroughly and accurately. I couldn't recommend him higher!
