So, the kiddos are back to school and this morning is the first time I have checked my email since before Thanksgiving. Holy cow! 214 messages in my "Promotions" inbox! Are.you.kidding.me?
Thinking I could do a little online shopping since the house is quiet (and Levi is not manipulating my laptop), the shear amount of great deals and offers are making this 49-year-old-grey-haired-PD blogging-hott- mama-of-four's mind spin!
Aaaaaarrrrrgh! Delete,... delete... DELETE!
You know what? Yesterday, Pastor Stan shared this video called the "Advent Conspiracy." Check it out. I never realized the US spends $450 billion at Christmas! Wow...that sure could purchase quite the STEAM robotics engineering program for our at risk county here in rural West Virginia.
Excuse me, can I tell you something? My sister-in-law, Tammy (who headed home to Philly early Sunday morning) proposed just this idea on Thanksgiving Day! She suggests that our family contribute to a charity collectively as a family rather than purchase gifts for adults; and continue her traditional yummy cookie and mint fudge exchange! Her idea was that we select the Michael J Fox Foundation, who is researaching a cure for Parkinson's Disease. There's a cool gift!
I love it! And, how interesting that within an hour after she heads home Pastor Stan shows us all this video. I think God was winking at Aunt Tammy as she headed north on that PA Turnpike!
