Girl Talk


Good Morning everyone....it's Friday. I'm going out this morning with mom. Today is one year my grandfather passed away. So we are going out to the cemetery and to lunch and some shopping.
I love days like this with mom......she is the best.

This week has been crazy. The bank declined our offer on the house. The one in foreclosure.......but didn't accept anyone else's......so we have to wait for a price still. Maybe up to 2 weeks. God is teaching me patience...and I'm going to learn it.

We have a busy weekend as usual. Madison is staying with a friend tonight and going to the ballparks. While Miller is going to Scott's moms. Scott and I are going for pizza and bowling and that Kit Kat Blizzard....date night....whoo hoo.

Tomorrow we have Soccer games 30 miles away....two at that. And Sunday we just have church and just hanging out together.

My life is running in circles as usual...but I wouldn't have it any other way.....have a great one friends.

A Quote for Tuesday

I have alot to do today. I have an appointment, lunch with a friend.....and running errands.
This will be short....


My theory on housework is, if the item doesn't multiply, smell, catch on fire or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one cares. Why should you? Erma Bombeck


Have a great day everyone.........

A Home

Scott just went back to work. He has been off all week with us. Madison is getting ready to go back to school. Miller is playing. I'm trying to get back into the blogging groove of things. It's a beautiful day here today. We have found a home we want to buy.....BUT......it is in foreclosure. The real estate market has it but they don't have a price from the bank. Which is about to drive me insane. Maybe the bank will contact us today. Does anyone have any experience with foreclosed homes? Any advice would be appreciated. I have been looking at different things for the new house......wherever it may be. Madison is wanting a Paris theme....again...if you have any ideas please share. She has found a bed spread at Bombay for Kids...and I like it and it is on sale. Good sign. She also wants to add something to her room for her friends to sign while there.....I was thinking a chalk wall...but another friend of mine says no way...it is too messy. So....I thought maybe painting the back of her door and writing something in French at the top ...maybe about friendship...and letting them sign that. I don't know. And for the first time ever....I will have a dining room. I have always had an eat in kitchen only. So I can get my china out....it has been passed down in Scott's family for 4 generations. It's Royal Blue...so the whole room will be based on this one. Any designers out there?

Well, I have talked enough about the house...that we don't own yet or have a price on...say a prayer it works out. I really want this house.

I hope you all are well..I'm coming to visit.

Rainbows & Sunshine

Well, I'm sitting on the couch with coffee this morning. Watching Miller play in the floor. Madison is still asleep. Scott is on Jury duty.
I have been gone for awhile.....this is what's going on.

1. We sold the house. This has completely worn me out. I'm excited....yet scared out of my mind. I'm selling the home that Madison has grown up in...the home Miller came home from the hospital to. The home that Scott and I have put blood, sweat and tears along with alot of love in. What were we thinking?

2. We have no other houses that we are thrilled about. But we are going to look at 2 homes today. The home we liked sold....so back to the old drawing board.

3. Madison is home on Spring Break. I'm trying to make life as easy as possible with the funeral and all.

4. My grandmother passed away on Saturday night. She went to be with her Lord and Savior on Easter....how wonderful is that? It was sad.....but I'm glad she passed the way she did. My dad is sad. That is what is the hardest. You never want to see your parents or children sad. We buried her yesterday.

5. My sister is home from Peru for everything. I know it is so hard for her to be away for so long and come home for such bad news.

So.....I thank God for my blessings this morning. I thank him for everything he has given us. I thank him for my blogging friends. I'm taking some time off with all the stress going on. I'm having some anxiety problems. I hope you all have a great week. You all are my Rainbows and Sunshine each morning. I'll talk to you again soon. PROMISE!

Girl Talk


Well, I haven't done this in awhile. I have been busy running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. Spring always gets me up and going.It's been 80 degrees around here and well, that's been nice. I have been walking with a girlfriend 3 times a week for about 3 miles. It's been great...I have thoroughly enjoyed our talks. I have been busy with my MOPS group. That is just energizing by itself.

We have been busy getting an Easter Egg Hunt together for this weekend at church...I have a gazillion eggs in my kitchen right now that I'm trying keep out of the hands of a 16 month old.

I still need to finish getting some things for Easter Sunday. Madison needs shoes....Miller needs shoes.....I just need a pedicure.

My grandmother had a massive stroke last week and is not making a good recovery....she is 91. Please pray for her will and God's/ plus my sister is flying home for her from Peru.

Our home is still for sale. We have at least 1-2 a day come through.It is still exhausting to keep my home clean 24/7.
But we are managing.

Scott starts jury duty today, and he is looking forward to it. Spring Break is next week and I cant wait. I have all kinds of things for us to do.

Have you tried the new Blizzard at Dairy Queen yet? It's the Kit Kat....one word....yummy!

Have a great day friends!
