NIPTO, Day 285


The Wizard of Oz was fantastic. Just like I thought it would be! :)
From 6:41pm to 9:55pm, I took 774 pictures. Erm... yeah. I don't have a problem or anything. (That's 4.3 pictures per minute. Yup. I took the time to figure that out. Really. NO problem here... keep moving along! Nothing to see...)

After TWOO wasn't so great. But I'm not going into details. It just wasn't great.

Today's been school, a run to Target, babysitting (with Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks in hand), and getting ready for the Open House that's happening at my house tomorrow. (You should stop by! 10am-3pm :)

Chuck has been watched. (AWESOME. But it's to be continued, kinda. =/)
Now I'm watching Monsters Inc. I haven't seen this movie in foreverrrrrrr. It's soo good though! :)

NOW. I figure out what I'm reading/blogging about. Ruth.

Ruth 1:1-5
1 In the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land. So a man from Bethlehem in Judah, together with his wife and two sons, went to live for a while in the country of Moab. 2 The man’s name was Elimelek, his wife’s name was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Kilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem, Judah. And they went to Moab and lived there.

Alrighty. Background information! So there's a famine. And this guy from Bethlehem (where Jesus was born hundreds of years later!) moved with his wife and two sons to Moab. The man's name was Elimelek. His wife was Naomi. His sons were Mahlon and Kilion. Pretty simple.

 3 Now Elimelek, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left with her two sons.

Alas, Naomi's husband died, and she was left to live with her two sons. 

4 They married Moabite women, one named Orpah and the other Ruth. After they had lived there about ten years, 5 both Mahlon and Kilion also died, and Naomi was left without her two sons and her husband.

Both of them married women from Moab. One of them was Orpah and the other one was Ruth. After about ten years, both of their husbands died. All of Naomi's immediate family had died. This meant that she had pretty much nothing. Women didn't really have "rights" back in the day. But there were certain laws that protected them. As we'll see later. So. We've got Naomi, Orpah, and Ruth left living together.... we'll see what happens next tomorrow!

And now I go to bed. I have to actually get UP in the morning (on a Saturday morning! *gasp*) to help set more stuff up for the Open House! So. I shall blog again tomorrow. And should put pictures from The Wizard of Oz on facebook sometime... hmmm....
