Its almost Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving day is coming up soon!  For me, Thanksgiving is the wonderful aroma of turkey baking, the chaos of all my kids, Tim and I trying catch a glimpse of the Macy's Day Parade and the feeling of happiness and joy of being with my family!   I love spending the day with my husband and my children!  After we eat our scrumptous meal of juicy turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and many other yummies, we watch some football and do some crafts.  I also spend my evening planning my Black Friday strategy! I am looking forward to this years Thanksgiving day!  What does Thanksgiving mean to you??

Anna's new hobby and missing friends

I am laying here on my bed with my dogs Lucy and Genevieve sound asleep cuddled next to me. I really should be cleaning my house or doing dishes or laundry, but I am too comfortable where I am! I just read a friends new blog about how she is going to try and find a hobby for herself. She just moved to a new town, her husband took a promotion, and she does not have a job. So she is trying to find something constructive and enjoyable to do with her time. The first thing she is going to try is pickling.. which I find kind of funny. Not sure why it is funny. I think it is because when I think of someone pickling, I think of an older woman (grandma type) in one of those ugly shirt aprons. You know the ones! It just seems comical since this girl is pretty young, gorgeous (ya know, the kind you just want to kick! but can't because the are soo nice!) and extremely fun to be around! So, you could see where picturing her in the ugly grandma shirt apron pickling would give anyone a chuckle! Good luck Anna, I can't wait to read all about your pickling experience!

Anna and I were not extremely close friends, she was my son's teacher. She is really fun to be around and she made me laugh a lot! Super sweet girl, and really smart. She was an awesome teacher. I do miss her a lot! Which brings me to a question...what is it about some people that we miss then when they move away, even if you weren't close friends. And why is it you can forget others like they almost didn't exist!?

I sometimes think about friends that I had when I was young and think...where are they now? What are their lives like? And would they remember me? I know this may seem petty and insignificant when looking at the grand scheme of life, but this is the kind of silly things that pass through my already over loaded brain.

Well that is pretty much all my brain can handle tonight...I am going to bed. Good night all!! (who knows who all is, as I don't think anyone reads this blog be me???)

Summer is over already?????

I can not believe that school is just a week away! It will be nice to get back into an everyday routine, but it just flew by!
All 5 of my little blessings will be in school this year. Looking into Haas Hall Academy for Joshua and Brandon. Sometimes you just don't know what the right decision know???
I am making a change in my life. I am trying to be a more servant wife and mother. I want to make our family closer to God and closer to each other. I am tired of feeling tired. I am unhappy with the 'state' of our house, and our finances. I miss spending time with my husband. So I am going to try and do something about it! I am putting God first in my life, and trying to put all my trust in Him. I have always thought that is what I was doing, but looking back I think I was only looking to God in times of despair. Those times have seemed to be multiplying! But today is a new day! I just hope I don't end up like Chicken Little with paper pants on....
