Slowly Going Back Down...

Yea for me!

Two weeks in a row I have had a significant weightloss on the scale. Praise the Lord!

After doing really well, and getting down close to my goal weight, winter decided to set in hard and cold, thus bringing lack of ambition and sick children. So after missing 1 1/2 months of WW meetings, my weight slowly crept back up.

So here I start the beginning of my Spring working on the weight I've gained over the winter. But I'm driven to do it.

I just need to learn that my weight is something I'm always gonna have to watch. I wasn't blessed with a speedy metabolism or with a naturally thin body.

I learned alot about myself over the winter months, so hopefully when next winter hits....I'll be prepared.

-2 pounds this week.....Till Next Time.

Everybody Needs A Little Girl In Their Life

This week, my 5 year old has been home for Spring Break. I remember my Spring Break's growing up and that was always a very fun time.

So I wanted to continue the tradition for my little girl. I didnt' want her moping around the house all week with nothing to do, so I got brave.

I let her have a sleepover. And was it a blast!

She invited 3 girls over, which were sisters, but all very close in age. They were so well-behaved!

And I think they even had fun. =)

We made homemade pizza, ate cookies, painted fingernails and toenails, and watched movies. They giggled well into the night.

And the giggles, my friend, were well worth it. That's why I say everybody needs a little girl in their life. Everybody needs to hear that giggle. Boys laugh, but they don't giggle. And I loved the giggling in my house on Monday night.

What A Fun Day!

Okay, so have you lived until you've packed about 6 vehicle fulls of teachers, parents, and 3, 4, and 5 year olds and trucked them off to the local fast food joint and then the FFA Petting Zoo.

That was me today, along with 2 teachers, several moms, and even a dad or two, and about 35 K3, K4, &K5 aged children.

What a fun day! The kids had a ball. They all got a kids meal to enjoy, then they got to enjoy the farm animals. Most of the kids are from the city and don't get to enjoy the big animals. Their excitment was great. For the most part they all behaved and by the Grace of God, this is field trip #2 for the year, and we haven't lost one student yet. LOL.

Todays field trip also brought back memories for me. I was very involved in FFA in High School and I loved every minute of it.

I miss not having any farm animals around. But I loved the smell of the shop, with the smell of the animals and all the smells that come with them.

I hope the kids enjoyed it as much as I did.

Checking In


Okay, so I haven't blogged in a while. The blogging kind of takes a back seat to "life". It's been a crazy week.

I've had some exciting things happen this week and some not so exciting things. Just trying to sort it all out has my head spinning.

My dad is here for the weekend, and that's exciting. Love it when he gets to stop by. Love it more when he gets to go to church with us. The kids love having him here.

Hopefully, next week will be a little less crazy. I have some new things I want to start on my blog, so hopefully those will start popping up.

I don't really care if anyone is reading this, it's just a place for me to sort out all the things in my head.

Till Next Time.....

Verse of the Day 3-5-08

1 John 1:8-10
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and ust to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Ponder the paths of thy feet, and let all thys ways be established.
Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

Starbucks...Walmart....No More

So Sunday morning, I missed church because my little girl was sick again. She's feeling better and has been to school both days this week. It just must be some nasty stuff going around, and with her being in school, she's more likely to get it.

Anyways, hubby comes home from church Sunday Morning and informs me I'm no longer able to patronize Starbucks. Why, I ask? I guess Starbucks has been putting some Anti-God slogans on their cups. Why....I ask they have to do this? I quite frequently visited the drive-thru, and I myself had never read one of these "opinions". It must be serious, when my Pastor will even say something in front of the whole congregation. I wonder how many other church members felt violated and convicted by this. What an insult to us Christians.

So, I love now what do I do....I'm gonna go buy an espresso machine and make my own coffee, and guess what.....I won't be buying it at Walmart either.

What's up Walmart?? Sam Walton would be rolling in his grave for how far gone your company is.

Why do I have to walk down the beer aisle...JUST TO GET POPCORN! And you know what else, I'm sick of your rude-non-caring-I don't care if you have help or not-associates.

What happened to CUSTOMER SERVICE? It is so far gone, it's non-exisistent in 95% of business frequented.

My goal is to limit Walmart, Walmart was built for my kind of people, but no longer, even Walmart is changing with the times.

I will be getting my groceries at Hyvee, who have seperated their alcohol from the main building, and they have great customer service, and are very helpful. My fabric will be coming from Hobby Lobby (oh, by the way, who still closes on Sundays so their employess may enjoy their day of worship and with their families), or Joann's. Everything else, I will pick up as needed where I can get it.

I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. I hope everyone else will see what these places are doing to families and Christians. We are being disposed of and mocked.
