I know it has been a week lol What can I say? my life is insane;-) Here is the play by play because I don't have time to answer ALL of the emails in my inbox lol Last week seems like a blur. My oldest has asthma and not just asthma but ASTHMA. He doesn't just have the kind you treat with an inhaler he has the kind that requires the nebulizer to be pulled out. Sometimes it gets so bad that I have to take him to the Dr and one time the DR called 911! Its a little freaky when a Dr calls 911 and your son is taken in an ambulance. Last week he had problems breathing so sleeping was a luxury.
I think Monday and Tuesday we did very little outside of the home.
Wed we went to church.
Thursday I had to pull him out of school but I had a meeting I couldn't get out of so a friend came over to babysit all of my kids.
Friday I had to pull him out again for neb treatments so I took him to the Dr for steroids.
Saturday he was doing much better. I had a million errands to run before their Daddy moved into town on Sunday...I will give you a minute to let that soak in:-)...Saturday I also had several inches cut off of my hair. It is SHORT for me. It was to the middle of my back and now it is just above my shoulders.
Sunday we all got up and went to church and then went to the store. The kids wanted to bake a cake for their Dad since today is his birthday. Oh wait I haven't told ya'll about all of that have I? The kids Dad decided that 1200 miles was too far so he quit his job and moved out here. He is staying in a hotel around the corner till he figures out the rest of his plan. For us it is life as normal and the kids have school and I have work...
Tonight (Monday) I have a meeting and I think dh is going to tag along.
Tomorrow night (Tuesday) is the Fall Festival at church.
Wed I have an appt after work and church at night.
Thursday I have a 2hr meeting after work and then a teacher conference after that.
Friday is still up in the air. I am scheduled to work but the kids are out of school so if dh can't watch them I have to take off work. I have no idea what I am doing this weekend. At some point I want to let dh be the parent and I want a night out withOUT kids:-) Ok so everyone can stop panicking I am fine...well, fine for me:-D


As most of you can see I have updated to the new version of Blogger. It has some new features and I would like to run one of the safety ones by you...I pretty much already know who is reading my blog because I have sitemeter even if you can't see it:-) I was thinking about making this blog "permission only" and I could invite you by your email address...the only problem is you would have to sign in to read it...is this something that you would mind doing? I know it is one extra step but I am asking because if I did that I could be a lot more open in my posts:-) Then I would have control over who was seeing what and my whole life wouldn't be out there for the whole world to see kwim So if you could email me or leave a comment and let me know what you think?...thanks! I haven't 100% decided but I thought I would ask your opinions first:-)


Remember this guy from Ghostbusters?? This is what I am going to look like this winter with a million layers of clothes on! It is ONLY Fall and we have seen our first freeze...yeah yeah I know that is nothing to ya'll but it is 88 degrees in my hometown right now! That I am used to! I was sooooo cold last night that I skipped church this morning. I didn't want to get out of bed!! I don't even want to leave the house lol I did have to run and get something this morning and I put on 2 sweaters and a jacket. As I am looking around people are in short sleeves..are these people insane?? Yesterday we had a wind advisory and the wind was blowing so hard I thought it would knock ME over! My oldest said he had never seen wind like that without a name attached to it lol he is referring to the tropical storms:-) I am sure I will get used to it and be one of those insane people with short sleeves on but right now OH. MY. WORD. it is COLD! I still love it here and wouldn't trade it for the world...so if you are in Oklahoma and you see this person with Florida tags on her car don't point and laugh when you see how overdressed her and her children are:-)

My southern is showing today:-) Today is the first offical day of fall break...today I am wanting to take care of some things around the house that I have neglected so we are staying home..well, the trip to Wal-Mart does count but NOW we are home for the night;-) It is pretty chilly outside to ME...I know the folks here are laughing but right now in my hometown in Florida it is 82 degrees so a WINDY 55 is chilly. I don't know how long it will take me to get used to the wind but I do know I will probably cut all my hair off before winter is over lol One thing that cold weather does is make me want to cook. Not just baking but real southern cooking. So tonight for dinner I am cooking up a mess of greens with some extra turnip roots cuz we ALL love them, a big ole pot of beans cooked in pig parts:::big grin::::and some sweet cornbread to soak up the pot liquor...oh and for our belly washer we will have some real sweet tea...not this stuff they try to pass off as sweet tea in Oklahoma:-D Later tonight we will enjoy our first fire in the fireplace..I bought some wood in a bag so don't be too impressed...OH and we will watch Over the Hedge with some hot cocoa...Just a quiet night with the kids and I...something I think we have all needed...I only share because I just know how interested some of you are in the boring happenings in our day to day life;-)


I have two words for ya'll:-) FALL BREAK!! That is all I have to say about that lol I will see you all Monday! Oh wait I do have one more thing to say...yeah you know I can't just leave it at that...I want to thank you all for the prayers and encouraging emails. It really helps to know that others care and are praying....God truly is amazing and I really am doing fine! Thanks again!!


Guess what I did today?? I was in a twinkie eating contest lol Funny part is I don't even like twinkies but I don't back down to a challenge:-) I am also one of those weird people that can eat anything even if I don't like it..you would never know if you were a bad cook and I was just faking it lol Wait if I ask for the recipe it is because I DO like it so don't everyone panic at once:-) I only lost by one and to show my good sportmanship I smashed that one in the challengers face...yeah it was in fun so don't think I have lost my mind :-P It was so funny and I had twinkie cream up my nose from cramming them in my mouth..I thought I was going to choke cuz they are soooo dry...nasty little things:-P That and we were all laughing so hard! See why I like my job? Who else can go to work and enter a twinkie eating contest while being cheered on by hundreds of people. Go Twinkie Power;-)


Which are You?

THERE are two kinds of people on earth to-day;
Just two kinds of people, no more, I say.

Not the sinner and saint, for it's well understood,
The good are half bad, and the bad are half good.

Not the rich and the poor, for to rate a man's wealth,
You must first know the state of his conscience and health.

Not the humble and proud, for in life's little span,
Who puts on vain airs, is not counted a man.

Not the happy and sad, for the swift flying years
Bring each man his laughter and each man his tears.

No; the two kinds of people on earth I mean,
Are the people who lift, and the people who lean.

Wherever you go, you will find the earth's masses,
Are always divided in just these two classes.

And oddly enough, you will find too, I ween,
There's only one lifter to twenty who lean.

In which class are you? Are you easing the load,
Of overtaxed lifters, who toil down the road?

Or are you a leaner, who lets others share
Your portion of labor, and worry and care?

Ella Wheeler Wilcox


I am so glad that I serve a God that just loves me for me....even with all my faults and trust me there are many! I talk too much, I worry too much, I care too much..still God loves ME! Tonight that just hit how much:**) Some days I get worried about how things are going to work out and what tomorrow holds...I worry about the holidays and my kids being so far away from family. How will they feel? how will I afford Christmas gifts? Yet God is constantly showing me ways He is taking care of me....some are very hard for me because they involve other people and I am so not good at receiving. I am a much better giver. He is still so patient and loving and He hasn't given up on me! I want to get to that point that when something bad happens that I can just sit and wait to see how God is going to take care of it...He knows my needs before I even need them! Nothing surprises God but I am not there yet. I still worry. When something bad happens I still get upset and ask God why and how and all the details of His plan. Tonight I was just thinking about all the different worries I had THIS YEAR alone...the move, the marriage, the money to move, the car, the job, the kids, the school etc...HE had a plan all along. It may not have always been easy to see but later you could look back and see His hand in it. I am just amazed at how He HAS been here for me. I just feel sooooo thankful and blessed tonight. I also feel loved. I know that may be easy for some but for me that isn't an easy thing. So tonight I just want to THANK GOD for everything. I don't need to know WHAT tomorrow holds because HE holds my tomorrow. Maybe next time I won't stress out so much:-) If not there is always the time after that.. it is a good thing His mercies are new every morning:-)


It IS broken:-( This is ds2 with his new blue cast.
