Well tomorrow is a big family day. We will go to mom's as soon as church is over and then Tyson and Brandi will be at church but I'm not sure I'll really get to see them much. Not sure how long they are staying. Lets see what else is going on? Emily leaves for DC for a mission trip on Monday at 5 am which means we have to leave home about 445. really does anyone get up that early??? YUCK!!

Jason should be buying a new car/truck soon. We haven't decided for sure but its gotta happen the black truck is falling apart as I type, and the blazer is well 10 years old and has a bunch of miles on it!!

I'm working on my pretty women pages for the NSW at the clubhouse. I've not had any great thoughts as of yet though. Punch lines maybe I'm watching it right now and I love some of the lines!!!

Have a Happy Easter and thank you Jesus for dieing for us, and rising on the 3rd day.

Well I'm well into my new job. I do enjoy it, its a little boring sometimes. I didnt realize how much I would miss people. I also didnt realize what a pain picking out clothes everyday would be.

The kids... well they are kids and don't like each other and do horrible mean spirited things to each other on a regular basis. I so thought by now at 15 and 18 they would have out grown that but no such luck for now. If you are a prayer keep them in your prayers. Nick plans to spend 6 weeks in Germany this summer and then come back to graduate and then go back to live. Her name is Sarah cause other than a girl what could make you want to move half way across the world.

Emily is taking tumbling and is thinking about trying out for cheerleader next year. With the school split not sure what she is going to do she can't seem to decide. She turned 15 this past Monday and she is having a sleepover on Friday night. Gigi cupcakes, movies, and who knows what else. Teenage girls it could be anything.

Jason and I are both fine, we feel like we are stuck we'd like to buy a house and a couple of cars but all those things take money, right, so we are working on it. If anyone happens to win the lottery can you throw us a little?

Have a great rest of the month.

Its been forever since I posted so much has happened since October. I am no longer a long term employee of Cracker Barrel. I'm working at Hillvue Heights Church as the assistant to the children pastor. And I love it!! Work is fun, less stressful and I get to spend more time with my family which are all great things.!!

Had lunch with an old friend the other day, she is a new 1st time mom and I felt sorry for her almost, she is so lonely! She is staying home with the baby and has no friends really. It made me wonder if that was me some 15 ish years ago when Emily was born and how I ended up divorced before she was 2. Just sheer bordom of my then husband being all the adult conversationn I had, and then when I finally did go back to work when she was one and had adult time I just couldn't get enough. I don't know but it made me think about it.

Please pray for a friend of mine with a child with CP!! He will be going through some painfull treatment soon and needs our prayers as does his family!!

Have a great week everyone.

What's up in my life

Time just keeps getting away from me. I keep forgetting to update, and what is going on in my life that is so interesting people want to read about it. NOt much

Emily going to HS this year has been an adventure for both of us. She is adjusting after 3 weeks but she has always like school and this hasn't been an easy time for her. 14 year old girls are so clicky and she obviously wouldn't be in any of those clicks so she is feeling a little blue. But like I said earlier she is adjusting finally.

Nick got his 1st tattoo for his 18th birthday and he has a new girlfriend, she is from Germany, same as last year. New forgien exchange student and he's all over it. Can even speak a few very simple German pharses.

anyway thats my life, oh and for those of you who don't know I'm working 2 jobs now. The barrel and at church about13 hours a week.

Pray for us. 29 girls and 16 boys 3rd to 6th grades. It will be an interesting week for sure. We have to be at breakfast by 730 and we are in dorm rooms.
