For one thing, major new products made of mystery materials keep everyone guessing.

so like always I like to give birthday gifts that are homemade. so for rich’s 26th I went all out. I am not much of a cook, but I have been saving recipes from the nytimes and I have been wanting to use them. his birthday dinner include sweet and sour balsamic pork ribs, garlic mash potatoes, and honey and balsamic glazed carrots. oh and mango tres leches cake for dessert. my whole afternoon was crazy. I was running around like a chic with its head cut off. I had multiple timers on my phone to keep track of the cooking mayhem. i am not much a cook so making a cooking timeline is stressful and confusing. after both fire alarms went off and after destroying my kitchen, it was all done and the final product won his heart. advice to all those who say you can’t cook, Yes You Can.
i must admit it. i have been acting very childish. it is embarrassing and it goes against everything in me to admit it. i complain and i have to try really hard to not put up a fit when my expectations are not met. yep, i am a child.
we just moved to long beach to a beautiful apartment 4 blocks from the beach. it is perfect. one thing though. my husband forgot to switch over the electricity while i was out of town. he has been working so hard sweating, moving boxes, and cleaning. yet, when night comes around i notice the mistake and forget all of he has done. i complain and ask him to call edison, and convince them that the 4th of august is not soon enough.
oh how this reminds me of my relationship with God. when my expectations of life do not go the way i want, i complain. i plead with him to try to fit his plans into my box. I am 21 and still do this. oh forgive me God. help me to learn that your ways are so perfect. help me to remember your provision. change my heart to be content and happy with the little things like no electricity. show me the beauty when life is not the way i planned.
thank you for the simplicity of candle light and life without refrigerators.
