Not your average Cinderella….

cinderella

I am going to the ball. 

Tonight is our church’s annual charity ball.  I am so excited.  I feel like I am going to the prom all over again.  I have my nails done, my pedicure, my dress, and yes some very shiny shoes.  My date is going to be the most handsome guy there and we plan on having the time of our lives.  There are not many times we get to dance together but tonight will be one of those.  Did I say I am excited?

However, our little girl is sick.  She hasn’t felt good for a couple of days but today she woke up with a fever.   Now, for some reason every time my Hubby and I have plans for a romantic evening, something always comes up.  Please pray that she will feel better so our plans can go on and we can have a great night not worrying about her.  My kids are staying with my Mom so I know they are in good hands but they always want there Mommy when they are sick. 

Do you like getting all dressed up?  Do you sometimes feel like the step sisters in a world full of Cinderellas?  I know I won’t look like Cinderella but it will be fun trying.

Sick Day and a Birthday….

I am home today with my little girl.  We are both sick.  The stomach virus ran through our family about 2 weeks ago and now we have the sinus mess.  Anyway, I did put some new pictures on myspace and facebook today.  I am finally writing a blog after not posting anyhting for quite some time.

Sunday was my little man’s birthday.  l cannot believe he is three already.  Where has the time gone?  He is a big fan of the movie “Fireproof”.  For his birthday we bought him a fireman set.  He is the cutest little thing trying to put out fires and cut through our floor with his play ax, like “Caleb.”  If you haven’t seen the movie it’s a real tear jerker.  My whole family loves it, especially Ace!

Blog addiction

 

caebctqn

I am addicted!  To what?  Reading other people’s blogs.  It is the craziest thing.  I feel like I am reading their diaries and I’m all up in people’s business I don’t even know.  I started reading blogs posted by an acquitance and then her blog linked me to all these other blogs and so my saga began. 

I love seeing how other people live, shop, decorate, etc.  Most of the blogs I read are from stay at home Mom’s which has always been something I would love to do.  They post pictures of the family and their homes.  My favorite were everyone’s Christmas decorations.  I got some great ideas. 

So, I want to start blogging more in hopes that I can be an inspiration to others as all this bloggers have been to me.  It is truly an addiction.  I can’t go a day without seeing what new posts are out there.  I currently look at 15 sites a day.  That could be a whole lot more but I decided to limit myself! 🙂

Anyway, do you read blogs?  Are you obsessed with reading stuff about stranger’s lives as I am?  You are probably thinking I have now lost it, but I just thought I would see if there are other crazy people like me!

Merry Christmas…

images

It seems I haven’t written a blog in a very long time.  I love reading other people’s stuff, but I think I am kind of boring.

Anyway, it is 6 days till Christmas.  Are you ready?  I am.  I have had my Christmas tree up since November 15th and I am done shopping.  The only problem with being done shopping is there is still another 6 days to shop.  I will go to the store knowing I don’t need anything and come out with one more present for someone. 

I have had a very hard time this year buying for my 7 year old little girl.  She seems to already have everything!  My little boy on the other hand will do with a plastic dump truck.  He is very easy to buy for.  As for my husband, he wants money to do something different with his 1972 truck.  I think it looks fine like it is.  He likes the projects though.  When he will find time, I don’t know, but whatever makes him happy.

I’ve been thinking a lot this year about Jesus coming back.  Every sermon at church seems to be on Revelation and every news article seems to say the same thing.  He is coming quickly?  Are you ready? 

Well, I do hope that all of my friends and family have the Merriest Christmas ever!  Remember- it may be the last one as we know it.  Even so, come Lord Jesus!

Migraine

 

This picture explains it all.  I don’t even know how many of these I took from 8:00 am yesterday to 3:30 am today.  I had the worse headache ever!  After throwing up twice and taking tons of medication, I feel a little better today.  However, today has become a headache in itself.  Nothing is going right and everything is getting under my skin.  Maybe it’s the lack of sleep last night or that I haven’t ate since yesterday at lunch, either way, I am so frustrated!  I should be happy, right?  It’s Friday.  Well, I have to work tomorrow and after work my day is full until late tomorrow night.  There is no rest for the weary!  I know I am rabbling but I had to get all of it out. 

On the up side, I do have our Dynamic Marriage class at church tonight and Allen and I are riding on the motorcycle.  I am also a Daughter not an orphan of the Father!  So, the day is not totally ruined.  Thanks for letting me vent!

“The Shack”

 

I was so excited Monday about getting to the store to buy this new book.  A friend had told me about it at church Sunday.  After reading the first chapter online, I was hooked and had to have it.  I just finished it today.  I can’t believe I read a whole book in 2 days but it was way to good to put down.

This book has changed my life!  I will never think the same way again.  Example:  I always thought things should be prioritized (God, Family, work, etc.).  Well, now instead of God being first he should be in the middle of everything.  I mean nothing exist without Him, right?  He should be in all of my relationships not just the one with Him but with my husband, children, and friends.  And then, there is my favorite quote from the book “I’m especailly fond of you”  that was spoken by God.  To know that no matter what I do in life “Papa” is fond of me and I can never go too far from His love. 

I can’t even come up with the words to express my thoughts on such a great novel!  I want everyone to get a copy and devour it like I have.  It has consumed me for the last 2 days. 

So, whatever you are doing right now, stop and go get a copy of “The Shack”.  You could borrow mine but I think Allen is anxiously awaiting his turn.  Walmart (remember the deodorant story) has a bunch of them.  They are $10 and some change.  A minimum amount of money for something that you will NEVER forget. 

Please share your thoughts after the read.
