I was tagged by Daphne

The challenge was to turn to page 123 in a book & post the 5th sentence & then the next 3. This is from "Do Penquins Have Knees and Other Imponderables"

It's answering the question, why are baseball card wrappers covered in wax?

Wax wrap allows the cards and gun to be sealed heatan economical, quick, safe method to secure the integrtiy of the packaging. But most bubble guum maunufacturers are switching to poly wraps because new equipment is faster and ploly creates a more air tight seal. Now that baseball cards can be worth as much as d'art, it seems appropriate that the waxy texture of the wrappers will be eradicated.

There weren't five lines on this page, so I wrote what was there. lol

I guess I should post more often.

Well, not much going here. So I don't have much to post. We will be leaving to go visit Andrew tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather. It's supposed to get really cold here while we are gone. I guess we picked a good time to go.

It's been a while since I blogged. Well, Doug has almost completed his 13 weeks of boot camp. We will be flying out next Monday, Sept. 3, to see his graduation. I can't believe it has been 13 weeks since I have seen that little booger! I'm still his Momma so I can call him what I want. I'm so proud of all he has accomplished. And, the whole gang is gonna be there to celebrate. His Parents, Grandparents and siblings. His Uncle Eric and his girlfriend and her mom, too.

Not much else in the way of excitement here. Same O, same O. OH!! I am up to 24 pounds on the weight loss and only one more to go to reach my new goal before we leave for San Diego. I say new because originally it was 20. I met that and I had to set a new one.

Andrew is now in Biloxi Mississippi. He really likes it there. He starts his training for being an instructor next Monday and just has to report in and the rest of the day is his until then. And once his training is over, if he doesn't have a class to teach, the day is his. He says he's gonna like that. LOLLori has been thinking about finding her own apartment.

She says she move back hom, she hasn't decided. Her lease is up in March so she has a while to decide and save up money if she wants our on her own. She turns 22 in 14 days. Man, am I getting old.

Doug sounds like he is doing well in boot camp. All his letters have sounded up beat. He had his wisdom treeth pulled and got a day of bed rest. He also got 800 mg of Motrin a day and he said he wasn't feeling a thing. LOL He did say his knees have been bothering him. He goes up to camp Pendeleton on Saturday for four weeks. He will get to shoot his rifle and do lots more marching. The Crucible will be done there also.

God Sightings

I have had lots of those in the past few weeks, so I'm going to share some of them.

Sighting 1~Doug seems to be doing well at boot camp. He is the platoon prayer leader and led a fellow recruit to the Lord the first week there. PTL

Sighting 2~SMITE was great! I have been on these SMITE trips every summer for about the last five years, and I don't remember one being like this. I felt rested even after only a few hours of sleep, and really enjoyed it. I'm sitting here trying to put it into words and just can't explain it.

Sighting 3~ Rain. Thank God for the rain!! We got rained out of the park ministry thing we were to do on Saturday. So we had a concert of prayer. It ended up lasting 31/2 hours! Now, you have to remember this is high school aged kids and all were attentive and I think everyone of them left a changed kid. The group is bringing it back to our own church, which is having problems, and wanting to change them, too. I Timothy 4:12 "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity."

Sighting 4~ I have lost 8 pounds!!
