Rainy winter day

We are back into the normal schedule today as a trial run before a whole week of normal starting Monday. We certainly did enjoy having Joe home more, even though he didn't really get a vacation. He worked tirelessly on Culpeper things and has really made some progress. I am so thankful to have such a hard working husband! We are just under 50 percent for our support raising so far and are going to Virginia next Friday for a week and a half of visiting churches and meeting people.

I have to also rave about something. I have had the same pair of jeans for several (who knows how many!) years now and they are old! And need replacing badly! About 2 months ago, I went from store to store in Jackson and tried on every pair of jeans I could find but to no avail. It seems that all of the jeans in the stores were just too low waisted. I have a long torso and so low jeans are REALLY low on me. To tell you how desperate I had gotten, I even considered buying some "mom jeans."

But I didn't have to! When we were at Gap earlier this week, I tried on their Essentials style jeans and they worked! They are cut high enough on the waist and still look cute. YAY!

Hallie, those jeans are really cute and I'll bet look great on you. Hooray for no mom jeans!

No kidding! Even I don't even like mom jeans! Maybe we can call them grandma jeans!!!!!
