Dreaming of Wooters

This is the random dream I had last week.

We were road tripping to see Wooters over summer and to be at Grandma Wooters for Coltons baptism. We were staying at Kathy's house a few days so the kids could play together. Grandma had cooked a feast and had it stashed in a bedroom with a second kitchen (like a movie room kitchen). The kitchen and living room were clean and ready to entertain.

It was time to go to the baptism and I got all my kids ready. Wooters left. My boys and Ashlyn went out to the car. Madison was playing and being pretty rotten. I finally had everyone ready to go but me. I just needed to slip into my skirt and a nice shirt. I couldn't find the ones I laid out. I looked everywhere but couldn't find anything. Brian was now in the car with the other kids. The house was empty except Madison and me. I looked in all 4 kid bedrooms for my things. I was frantic now.

Madison had an evil smile. I confronted her. She finally admits she hid my clothes. By this time Brian left me so he didn't miss the baptism but I know if I can get it together I can still walk over and not miss it.

I scream at Madison and she shows me where she hid my things. She scooted the four moving boxes I brought with my clothes into a small but deep air return vent near the floor in the front entry hallway Then she added a dog crate last so I wouldn't see past it to notice my suitcase/boxes.

I scream to get those out and I will put back the other rooms I have torn apart looking for my stuff before the people come back to the house for the nice lunch Kathy has prepared. She pulls out the dog crate as I go and it drags out straw that makes a huge mess everywhere right by the front door. I went back to get my clothes after cleaning a back bedroom. I can see Kathy has stored Christmas manger scene stuff in the air vent space so the hay makes sense but it's now everywhere.

Madison is smiling smugly sitting on the floor in the straw mess. My boxes are there but flat as can be. She emptied them of all my things and had only hid the cardboard box in the vent space.

After some yelling she opens yet another closet to reveal all the contents of my four boxes of cloths stuffed and hidden UNDER Kathy's holiday decor boxes. This closet is on the other side of the entry way. I make her get it all out and she grabs handful after handful of my clothes, piling them by the door.

Brian returns at this point happy and wondering where I was. I can't even talk. He tries to hug me and I push him away. I have missed the baptism and am mortified that the party guests are now coming in droves into the house stepping over my clothes and raising their eyebrows at the straw disaster that greets them upon arrival.

Kathy and Vanessa are so happy with the baptism that they literally don't notice the complete disaster Madison has made of their house while they were gone. They just keep serving and entertaining everyone as they eat. Madison continues to clean slowly with her smug smile of victory. I am
mortified. Colton of course is all smiles and Brian still can't figure out why I'm so mad.

Then I wake up feeling agitated at Madison and amused at the ridiculousness of my feelings all at same time.

God's Unlimited Crown Supply

Today I'm thankful God isn't going to run out of crowns, you know, like Burger King. We were working on our memory verse at breakfast today for sports camp at Faith UMC.

2 Timothy 4:7-8

Mom: I want a crown.
Ashlyn (5): You can't have one, you're not a princess.
Mom: I am a princess to God and he will give me one. He won't ever run out of crowns.
Madison (10): Yeah, God won't ever run out so we can all have a crown. Kind of like Burger King always has enough for everyone.
