Journal Entry #16

Out My Window: Sunny & hot. Such predictable weather here in AZ. This is Monsoon Season, the time of year we are suppose to get some rain. Nothing so far.

Desert Life: I'm learning bit by bit about living in this arid climate. I was worried about dehydration because I'm not a fan of drinking water, but I've learned I like water much more with some cucumber slices in it. I'm staying hydrated fairly well, but my little daughter, Sally, seems to get a little dehydrated most days and needs reminders to drink some water.

Bible Study: Finished Wisdom and started Sirach, another book of proverbs. Some good verses:
  • For fear is nothing else but unfaithfulness to thinking helpful things. (Wisdom 17:11)
  • The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and was created with the faithful in the womb, and walks with elect women, and is known by the just and the faithful. (Sirach 1:16)
Moving: It's been hard on the kids. They are unhappy here. Lucy, our oldest, started a new job today. She is a social worker and got a CPS position. Charlie thinks he is going to move in with a friend from high school who lives in Tempe (we'll see). Linus has been sleeping or playing video games. Sally watches TV. School will start for Linus and Sally on August 7. Hate to wish away summer but I am tired of watching them mope around.

In the Kitchen: It is Mexican Monday and we are having chicken tacos, rice and salad.
