What I Did During My Study Vacation

. at . 10 comments

  • Read and studied Acts, I & II Corinthians, Galatians, I & II Thessalonians.
  • Ironed (yep, I brought a dozen shirts and/or trousers to iron in case I wanted to watch a movie – which I did.)
  • Prayed.
  • Watched The Ron Clark Story on TNT. It’s a true life story about how a young teacher from North Carolina helps his students, in a New York City public school, learn. Clark’s mistakes, passion, persistence, playfulness, caring and innovation win over the students’ initial reluctance (and downright defiance) to learn from him. This teacher reminded me so much of my brother-in-law I just HAD to watch it. Go here for more info about Clark.
  • Slept wonderfully.
  • Walked.
  • NO internet, other movies/tv or other books.

Thanks for your prayers.

    Ironed???Iron, what is that?
    My iron & I have been separated for years, occasionally we kiss & make up when 100% cotton enters my house. But it always spits at me & gets all steamed up when we reunite, tempermental thing.

    I have the exact iron – they must be siblings. I would love to get an iron that treats my right. Wouldn’t you, Lennie.

    Maybe someone who knows irons will post some good suggetsions.

    LOL! What IS it about ironing? I remember being a kid and looking forward to ironing (which I was not allowed to do until I was 12) Ha! I also remember my older sister paying me a dime for each article of clothing that I would iron for her. She had massive piles, and I made a lot of money, but man, it sure took the wind out of my ironing sails. 🙂

    Glad you had a good study break! I did pray for you as I was busy having fun. Little breath-prayer, “Lord help Susan focus and get a lot done.”

    Sounds like a wonderful break! I know if I didn’t access the internet I’d go withdrawals for a day or two, but then it would be really nice!

    Susan – I am the “ironing queen” in my family. I take a travel iron with me on trips or try to stay at hotels where I know they have irons. When I visit my sister she has to think about where she keeps the iron and the ironing board ’cause she doesn’t iron.
    I have a cordless iron and an extra large ironing board that I leave up in front of the window all the time for my cats to sleep on or look out the window.
    I love to iron!
    Thanks for sharing about your study time –

    Thanks so much for those breath-prayers. And thanks for telling me: made me feel special.

    Ahh, older sisters. They sure can take advantage of younger sisters. Only a dime. Talk about child labor!

    I am an older sister and I remember getting my sister to do things for lowwww prices too. And I made it so it seemed like a lot of money and a privilege.

    It was a great study break. And being without internet access was easier than I thought it would be. Probably because I didn’t have access to it.

    It is amazing, though, how much the internet plays a part in my life.

    Like when I was studying about the rapture, I wondered if my church denomination had a position. Normally I’d hop online and have a looksee.

    Or while eating walnut-apple instant oatmeal, I wondered if there was a way I could copy the recipe at home. I had a vague recollection of a recipe for making your own instant oatmeal. Normally I would have quickly settled that matter.

    Now I’m home and needing to be disciplined about NOT satisfying my every questioning whim. Now that the internet is at my fingertips – it is hard.

    Catlady – It is good to know an ironing queen! I bow before you.

    Do you have any tips about a good iron? I am so tired of being spewed upon. I think I could actually like ironing it wasn’t such a tussle.


  • 9. lennie  |  . at .

    Hey Catlady-I’m bringing my ironing from the past 3 years over to you.


  • 10. Susan  |  . at .

    Hey, it’s an ironing party. Maybe catlady can give us some tips?
