My poor little baby girl....

Being woke up at 4:30am is never fun...and usually never a good thing. DD4 is sooo sick today. She started being sick at both ends this morning and everytime we think she is ok...she gets sick again. Keep little one in you prayers please...me too...I can't afford to be sick too!

I really hate fishing

So, if fishing is just about the most painfull thing I ever have to do...I guess I don't have it too bad! Today is DH's birthday. For his birthday, he wants to go fishing. I do not, have never, and never intend to like fishing! I can't stand stitting still for that long!

Wish me luck! Did I mention that this is a family fishing date? Fun fun stuff!

Actually getting some things done today

Beauty in the common things: mudpies

Listen in: back door opening and shutting over and over and Wham playing on Sirius Mix.

Dinner Plans: Spaghetti and garlic toast

Plans for the day: Clean-clean-clean, followed by laundry...church then bed

Not sure where all the energy came from! I have really accomplished some things today! The laundry is mostly caught up and the house is mostly clean. As long as I am 15 minutes from clean enough for company... I am happy! DD6 brought home her school pictures today. They are so pretty! I am very excited about that! But, then again she is a pretty little girl!
I found the teacher I was telling you about. She was stunned that she felt like she influenced my life so much.

So here in my challenge to you...
Look up a teacher that meant something to you and let them know. Most schools have web addresses now and most have a list of faculty names and contact links! You may be suprised who you find and they may be suprised that you remember them!

Today is the day

Beauty in the common things: lazy, rainy, dreary days that you can spend reading a book

View from the office window: dark sky's...periodic thunder

Plans for dinner: heat up left overs and a can of Clam chowder

Plans for today: Absolutely do nothing today. I am going to read a book, look up an old teacher I thought about today, and play on the computer!

I am having such a weird day. For one thing, I have many little projects I could be working on...yet I don't want to. I went to bible study this morning and the lesson is about our ability to love the people in our lives. So far it proves to be a class that will make me think. Today we just got started on the outline and first video. As those who know and love me are aware...I have issues. I went to many counseling sessions at school growing up and have to say that one of the most influential people in my life was Ms. Switzer. She was my Gatoraid group leader and in many ways changed my life. She doesn't know I feel this way about her, a couple of years ago I sent her a card. Monica's little sister was in her class at the time and reported that she was really touched. Well, long story...not so long... I think I will try to find her today. Maybe she is still at Dickinson High. I feel this overwhelming need to tell her she still inspires me. I know ya'll maybe think...give me a break...but, I plan to teach one day and I think those that have made a difference in our lives need to know. They need to know that for all that they do...13 years or 15years later...they still inspire us to be better than we are. Just last week I finally re-enrolled in college. This time I plan to finish school and teach. What will I teach, that is still the question... I believe God already has the figured out...I just need to get it together enough to get to that point. So, that is what I am planning to do!

On another note, we spent Sunday afternoon with Brent's dad at the lake. I have some adorable pictures of the girl's to share!

Monday... I need peace day

M&M enjoying The Easter play at Casa Manana with MiMi....

Beauty in the common things: freshly changed sheets and fluffy pillows.

Listen in: Dora the explorer....

Dinner plans: um...whatever is listed on the menu!

View from the office window: overcast and dreary

I am not having a good day. As I don't feel like telling the whole world about my reasons...just keep me in the prayers of my friends and those who would read this. I need prayer for peace. I need peace.

Bluebonnet Day!!!!!!!!!

I finally, ....got Bluebonnet pictures of my girls! and when I say finally, I mean finally (they are 6 and 4 and these are the first ones) M4 was not very co-operative with the process...being that she was bitten by ants within about 2 minutes of making it to the Bluebonnet field....for those of you who do not know...my girls do not react well to ant bites. The swelling and abcessing is not nearly as bad as it used to be...but it is still bad!

So without further ado....
