Sugar Doll Award.....who knew it?

So Tori tagged me and here I am...I didn't know how to get the cute little award posted so oh well!! Here's my ten things about me!!

1) I have the most amazing husband in the world....he sometimes likes to purposely drive me crazy but he is so very strong in the Lord and has helped me grow soooo much in my own Christian life!!

2) I am VERY blessed with four little boys who fill my life with joy and happiness....they are sometimes EXTREMELY difficult to keep up with.

3) I am not very good at keeping in touch or taking pictures.

4) I am a workout junkie.....when i'm consistent enough to do it!!

5) I hate arguing or fighting.....I am more of a non-confrontational kinda girl.

6) I love my friends that uplift me and help me to do the right things!!

7) One of my favorite things to do is quilt although I don't get to do it that often!

8) I am a Very happy morning person....probably to most people's disgust!!

9) I am NOT good at talking about myself....this is difficult coming up with ten things!!!!!

10) Hope this satisfies Tori!! Love you girl!!!

I'm so excited that it's all working out better than it would have had we signed papers yesterday. Phil will be able to move alot better those days in conjunction with his schedule this week. Just thought I'd let you all know!! YAY!!!

Well, first let me say that I am a goal oriented person....I know this but my sweet husband was oh so willing to remind me once again today. Our realtor's secretary called and said the bank lost a piece of paper.....not an important one....but important enough to start whatever they were working on over again!! YES!!! Can you believe that. I have no idea when we will sign on the house or close now. I get extremely upset and frustrated when things like this happen. Apparently, it's because I am a control sweet husband was on a roll today. Anyways, I am and know's just hard to swallow sometimes since I know it's not a character trait I want to keep. The LORD just always finds a way to let me know I'm SO NOT in control. Anyways, a discouragement but one that I can learn from. Anyways, I sure wish I could handle it better!! Just pray that it will all come together soon so that nothing even worse happens. Like the people back out or something!! Thank you!!

On my way...

Well, I got up at six thirty today and it was pretty easy. I've been working on getting up early and I was glad that I did it today. Tomorrow is the four a.m.....we'll see how that goes. I got up got the kids ready, threw them in the van, picked up Grammy and off to town we went. It was a huge blessing having her with me. We had a lot of fun. I got home and we ate lunch, I chatted with Kim for awhile and then took her home, I got home and got some laundry done, got my workout in, made dinner while Phil talked to Ty and Jonny got to talk, then we had our bible reading and singing. It was a very busy but fulfilling day. Anyways, i'm off to watch my show and eat my sugar free fat free pudding. YAY!!! Goodbye for now!

I got up late again!! ARG!!! I am working so hard at getting up early. I have a new plan and if you plan on commenting it had better be positive! Joking! Anyways, I am going to try a new plan this next goes.....4:00 a.m. get up...this is when Phil gets home. I am wanting to do more blogging and get my computer stuff done in the morning before everyone is up. I am going to workout and shower and do my devotions from four to seven. Then I am going to get the kids up and get them breakfast and get our school done. They do their chores when they are done and then we have lunch and nap time for the littlest boys. I know it sounds crazy to get up that early but it will give me more time to do the things I never seem to have time for during the day. I will be able to get to bed earlier too. I am going to hit the hay about an hour after the boys go to bed. That will put me to bed earlier and I will still be able to do my sewing in the evening after they are asleep. Like I said...I may have to tweak my schedule some after trying this. We'll see how it goes. I am working on a new plan for menu's too!

Have you ever heard of Once a Month Cooking. It's where you spend one day for about 8-10 hours in the kitchen cooking all of your meals for the next month. I am working on a plan to start for the New Year. I was wondering if any of you Mom's were interested. From what I have researched it cuts your grocery bill in almost half and saves you tons of time throughout the month. If you are interested let me know! Leave a comment and we'll try to coordinate. I will probably hold a cooking day at my apartment in January for those who are interested to do it with me. Anyways, have a great weekend. Gotta run for our daily game of UNO!!!

New Look!!

Well, as you can see I have revamped and retitled my blog. I thought there ought to be a purpose to blogging and I think i've found my calling. Well, at least I can post about my calling. I am going to be more proactive on here so that each one can see a little piece of our journey. The Lord has blessed us tremendously these past few months. Badger Road Baptist Church took us as members, our house sold, we found a Perfect piece of land and we are saving money to build our house out of pocket. So far....we're doing pretty good. My family is healthy for the moment and we're soooo excited about following God's will for our lives. He has blessed us so tremendously. I also opened my blog to whoever would like to read it. That is a huge step of faith for me that I won't get any perverted comments from people. If I don't like your comment I WILL delete it. Please only post appropriate comments. I may open another blog eventually just for pictures of the kids....we'll see!! Anyways, I thought I would post a little update of our life. My verse for today........

Proverbs 4:11
I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
