I want 2 to blog ..

.... I really do want to blog, but I have no clue what to blog about. Woke up this morning with no voice, and it honestly isn't that great still ... but at least I can say a few things. As long as I don't try to scream. LOL ... with 4 kids ...

School starts in just a little over a week. THANKFULLY. It will be nice to have quiet in the house for a while. Will only have about 2 1/2 hours with all 4 kids at home before Jason gets home. That is nice. His schedule changed this morning ... he only had to go to work for 7:30am. It was nice to snuggle this morning a little before he had to go. Just quiet time ... always nice.

I should be doing dishes or laundry right now -- and will as soon as I get done with this post ... but I wanted to jot a few things down first. LOL .. I know, not really interesting -- but hey, it works for now. At least it shows that I am still around! :) I am ok ...



Kids are great.

Jason is good.

Christmas in July ladies fellowship at church tomorrow evening .. supposed to get set up our table tonight -- and I am not sure if I have all that I need for it. sad. I tried to call the person who is supposed to be helping me -- and got no answer .. so I will try again in a few minutes ...

Musical dress rehearsal all day Saturday -- Jason has to be there to help on Saturday morning, kids have to be there for 1pm. Praying for Brandi and her stress level during this ... I think it's going to be great.

Baptism on Sunday morning - Joseph! How awesome is that!!! :)

Ok, that is all for now. Need to go and get a few things done before Jason gets home from work.

Be blessed.

Live, Love, Laugh

It's been months since I've taken the time to sit and type out a blog post. Forgive me? HA, is there really anyone reading this to answer that question? Doubt it very much! :) But, oh well - at least it's there for me to go back to and read - if I ever take the time.

Since I last posted, many things have happened. The end of the school year and start of the summer vacation for the kids - but of course, here we are, less than 2 weeks before school starts up AGAIN. I can't believe that I will have a 4th grader and 2nd grader. I am looking forward to finding out who will be their teachers. So far we have been blessed with amazing teachers for the kids and I hope and pray that it will continue. I know it's going to be a lot more to handle - much more homework ... but I believe that they can do it. They are ready to learn more! :)

Soon we will be celebrating Samuel and Jenna's 3rd birthday - wow! Where has the time gone?? Can't believe they will be 3 years old ... and that means, it will be 3 years since I've seen my parents and sister .. and I know how much that upsets them .. especially my dad, because I told him that I would see him in less than 2 years. OOPS! Who knows when we will get the chance to go up to Canada to visit them. Especially now with the ticket prices so much -- and such a long drive!!! blah. Procrastination.

Concerts - I've seen NKOTB 2 times since I last posted. I saw their opening show for the Full Service Tour in Atlanta - in June and also saw a show in Memphis in July. I was hoping to attend the last show of the tour in Texas on July 18th .. but we just couldn't do it. LOL ... no way were we adding 400 miles to our trip to Oklahoma .. although it would have been AMAZING to be there. :) Now, here's waiting on what will be next (my friend Shannon is trying to convince me to go on the May cruise -- but there is just no way I can justify spending that much money on a NKOTB tour). LOL ... so, who knows what will be next.

I took Stephanie to see Demi Lovato -- was a really good show .. and I am so glad that I was able to take her. It was great to be there also with Shannon and her 2 nieces -- even if we were not sitting together ... just sharing the experience with them. Now we are awaiting the Aug 22nd Jonas Brothers concert. Praying that Shannon will be able to find tickets for her and her niece. :)

Jason and I just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary ... July 18th. Along with my friend Rachael and her husband, Jeff. Who knew we would ever become great friends and share that special day!! :) We were driving to Oklahoma on our anniversary ... and we got to go out twice (once to the Melting Pot here and once at the Cheesecake Factory in Oklahoma) ... I can't believe it's been 11 years!! WOW!

Not sure what else to write, so I guess that I will end with that .. Hope that you all have a blessed day!
