Another night out????

 Now, folks, we are the core!

But my mother in law is a genteel southerner, as sweet and proper as the day is long!  

Here she is with her first great grandchild!  She will be getting another one in June.....a great grandson, our grandson!  

This kind of southern.....below is a book she gave one of our sons for Christmas.  He's away at college, the book.....still here.  Sorry Mema! 

 Yes, there is a point to this story!

A local doctor and family bought my MIL's brother's home and have been living there for oh, about a year I think.  MIL has been fretting that she hasn't done anything for them, so tonight she is taking them to dinner and we're invited to go!  So, that's why I say another night out!  Two this week, three if you count church last night and I do!    Oh, yea, one was last week, but who's counting?!   

I may can put his picture away for this week!  

Oh, and that man above?  With me??  My husband and best friend.  I love having time with him, but I can be a bit of a well, nag.  I call it helpful reminders, but he swears it's nagging!
So here are a couple of scriptures I have to keep in mind, especially during tax season!

The wise woman builds her house, but with her own two hands the foolish one tears hers down.  Proverbs 14:1

And DH's particular favorite...

A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day  
Proverbs 27:15

So on the days I'm particularly helpful, he has been known to say drip, drip, drip.

That sounds like my mother. She was always worrying that she had not done enough for our pastor and his family. She always wanted to do things for people!

I have the same shirt your mother is wearing. And, that's just all I am going to say about that!

Glad you and hubby have some more time together!

I've always heard that 'that the squeaky wheel gets the grease'...doesn't it stand to reason then 'that the leaky faucet gets the plumber'?

Ok that didn't really make sense, but I'm leaving it.
