A Day Out In The Big City

Saturday rolled around and "Mom's Day Off" was reinstated. Woo Hoo!!! I'm excited about this new area and my Saturday morning adventures. There is just so much to do around here. For the 1st adventure I took BART (the train) into San Francisco and got off right at Union Square. Oh the fun I had shopping, shopping, and MORE shopping. It was so fun to go to places I'd never been. These stores are all very high end~ Saks, Neiman Marcus, Barneys, etc. It was interesting going into Barneys and finding a shirt I liked for ONLY $1200, or the casual dress for only $1700. The clothes were beautiful, but seriously... WHO buys these things??? It was fun to look though. I managed to only buy adorable throw pillows for our couch, a show of great restraint! The day was ended in a Cafe at the very top of Nordstroms with a great view of the city. Then back on the train and headed home.

Saturday night we were given a wonderful treat when Jim's boss and his wife took our entire family out to eat to welcome us to the area. They couldn't have been any kinder to us all. They even both had all our names memorized the moment we arrived (we were all impressed!). It was a great time.

Things continue to roll along at our house. A few more boxes have been unpacked and that's always great! We would like to ask for your continued prayers for the healing of one of our children. We are learning more and more about what we are facing and it's not good. We are at a point that we are trying to make an extremely difficult (and even painful) decision. Please pray that God would give us wisdom and make his will very very clear to us in the best interest of everyone in our family.

Who buys a $1200 shirt? Funny, I was at a convention in Vegas about 12 years ago, anI I remember seeing a slot machine that took $500 tokens. Who would feed a machine like that?

We will be praying for you.

Please let me know if you would like to talk. Take care,
