Chinese take out night...


our sister tables at MOPS had a Chinese take out night here...it was so much fun!! Super low key prep...everyone brings there fave Chinese dish and we all share. Table leaders and mentor moms bring drinks. We had a mountain of food...and talked and laughed ourselves silly. It was so much fun we decided to make it MOPS wide (don't want to limit the fun, ya know!!) and next month it's Italian food...Now I'll have to find an Italian place that I love enough to share...
Anyway, we sat around and answered questions from this card deck (go ask your girlfriends) and got to know each other way more!! Or show off how well we already know each other (ie, what three people would you combine for your ideal mate was my question. And Kimberlee laughs and says, well, two out of three of them wouldn't be white....maybe three out of three) Which, seriously, was the truth!! Oh, Denzel, Isaiah and Patrick Dempsey. WOOHOO! Anyway...it was fun.
My scrapbook room is clean...and now I don't want to mess up my desk by working on it but I have a project I"m working on for a friend, so I guess I"ll jump in!! I even vacuumed it after I cropped so my friends wouldn't know what a scrapping pig I am (but Judy knows...she's scrapped with me!! LOL) I miss scrapping with her. I miss her.
Paul had this big realization about amends and how they apply to life and how it's not a one time thing...I hope so. It is painful for me when he just forgets how much he has hurt me and in how many different areas...and does his version of "get over it". Still, I don't trust that this will stick. He's gone down this road before, where God totally convicts him, he gets it and then quits. I do hope it sticks this time...
I"m tired...didn't sleep last night very well. Got things on my mind I wish weren't there. Got earplugs that fall out and I wish would stay in. Got a husband that does his darth vader breathing in my ear...well, I wish he would STOP. Not breathing...just on me!! Now I know why kids say "he's touching me...he's breathing on me." Sheesh.

That sounds like great fun! I took Chinese Cooking classes for several years and there is a core of students from our classes that love to share together in a similar way. (Our teacher retired last year so we get together every few months. We bring the food and cook together then eat and everyone cleans up. They are some of my fave get togethers. Most of all because EVERYONE pitches in, works together, plays together and helps to clean up and it is done before they go home. It's great fun and little effort on my part.
