Day 269/Book of Ruth
Sunday, September 27, 2015
Okay, I'm missing something. I'd never read the book of Ruth before, and my women's group is doing an 8 week study on it. The first week our homework was to read the book of Ruth and answer some questions about it. I don't get what all they hype is about. I must have missed something. I read it again, I still don't get it. The questions are like "what does the book of Ruth mean personally, for you" and my answer is I have no idea. I guess I just don't get the book of Ruth at all. I'm sure it has wonderful meaning, but I just don't get it. And spending 8 weeks on a 4 chapter book.... is going to be interesting. If I'm missing something obvious, please tell me.
I'm down a pound, woohoo! I hope this weight that I had already lost comes off quickly so I can get back to where I was and go from there!
We went to Pappadeaux last night. OMG yum! I had the oysters on the half shell, and Mahi Alexander with dirty rice. We don't go there often, but oh my is it worth the wait! I did talk with DH about this and that was our eating out night for the month of October. I told him I don't want to go out to eat again for a long while, as long as my challenges last at least. And especially no fast food, no drive thru's. His response was that he needs taco's (he's been on a taco bell kick, yuck). So I told him I will make him homemade tacos with real, homemade tortillas and all the works. It's something I can make with just a few hours notice (the dough has to chill for at least 30 minutes). He agreed. Thank goodness! He's the one that will call on his way home from work and ask what I want him to bring home for dinner. He's agreed not to do that, even on days when he does not feel like cooking.
I got up extra early today (and promptly fell back asleep) so that I can work out before church. I'm going to still try to get in a work out, even though I slept later than I wanted to. I'm going to do a quick 30 minutes on the WiiFit and then later today try to get a walk and strength training in. I didn't get all of my Jumping Jacks in yesterday, my calf is still sore from that leg cramp and it keeps feeling like it's going to cramp again. I just hope I can make it through my morning workout.
I'm probably going to be going to church w/out DH. He came to bed about 3 AM this morning. But that means I can get a coffee on the way to church and not worry about whether he wants to leave early enough or not.
Wish me luck at my women's group, I'm thinking I'm probably going to be the only one that does not 'get' the book of Ruth. And it's a discussion group. And I have nothing to say. Coffee, I need more coffee....
