Just finished a good book. The Forever War by Dexter Filkins. A great narrative from the front lines in the war against Islamic fundamentalism. Sort of gruesome in some parts, but go read it. After I read it, I realized what a miracle it is he even lived to write it.
It's therapeutic. Try it. Start by saying, "It makes me angry when...." and then fill in the blank with what makes you the angriest right this moment. Jeffrey's need to wake before the crack of dawn when roosters are still snoozing makes me ANGRY. Ideally an early morning for me would start at 7am. On an average day he wakes at 6:00 am, which is way too early and that makes me angry too, but 4:55am is so early it makes me want to scream. At that time of the morning I am not patient or loving, I am just angry. So the point is......ANGRY. Yep, I feel just a little bit better.

I was just trying to give those of you who actually check my blog something else to look at..This is what we are doing this Sunday afternoon in our very glamorous life that we lead. Ruby has fallen asleep mid day for the first time in as long as I can remember. This is only because she has a stomach bug, not that you could tell from watching her play or eat (she insists she is very hungry). Normally during this time on Sunday Dave, Jeffrey, and I are napping while Ruby plays. Lucky us, we have the most energetic children on the face of the earth! Jeffrey napped all of about an hour today. Anyone who knows him would agree with me, that isn't nearly a long enough break from his very loud high pitched screaming. This other picture is of David and Jeff having some nachos. After nachos Dave headed off to choir and I am left with sleeping Ruby and Jeffrey while feeling, oh, just a tad queasy myself. I just hope we get to enjoy Thanksgiving. There ya go, a little slice of Sunday afternoon Godsey life.

I know these are kind of late, but here they are anyway. We just went trick or treating in the neighborhood. Jeffrey was not nearly as shy as Ruby was at his age, once he realized they were handing out candy he made sure he got his bucket up there. He is obsessed with candy. A little while before we went trick or treating he got his sucker stuck in his hair, it was hilarious so I included those pictures too.
