Have a great Thanksgiving!
Tuesday, November 25, 2008
My girls came in to greet me this morning in bed. With them they had 2 cards. Apparently they notice when mommy isnt happy. Rose says " I made this for you incase you are still mad today." :) Gotta love her! She drew a picture of her and I. With hearts going from me to her and some from her to me. So sweet. She really has a sweet and loving heart. And Faith brought me a card where she drew a baby spider and said "This is a baby spider. I dont want you to kill baby spiders because their so cute" Rose pipes up and says " But baby spiders grow up to be big scary spiders" And I said " Well when they grow up really big then we will squish them" They both agreed on that compromise. How nice this day is starting. Cards in bed, the girls compromising. How much better can it get. Well then Faith brought me a stuffed duck with a big behind and malfunctioning neck. His head just bobbled everywhere. Reminded me of Bill Cosby describing his first born at birth. Then Faith decided that wasnt enough. Then she brought me Winnie the Pooh and a white teddy bear with brown toes and paws pads. His name is Joey. I named him over 10 years ago when Charles got him for me for graduating high school. We had just met like a a week or so prior to that day. And already he was head over heals in love. Took me a few more days but I got there! I kinda consider him my highschool sweet heart . Sorta. Well anyways enough of that. Like I was saying, before the train derailment, I was being spoiled and smuthered with cards and stuffed animals. Then we were trying to name the malfunctioning duck. At first Faith said Zac! I said " Yes! Zack the quack!" She decided that just would not do so she wanted a new name for him. She then apparently decided the duck was no longer a boy duck but a girl duck. So we settled on Magic the duck. I think that is nice but I think it needs magic to fix that neck of his...er... hers. I can never keep this stuff straight. My kids change things on me every other minute. First its a boy, then its agirl. First its Zack no its Magic. No wonder im so dizzy all the time!
Also I am reading the book the Shack. Have you read this? Well the first 6 chapters are so hard to read because its so saddening. It just tears your heart out but it is worth it to get the next part of the book. My favorite part so far is how Mack, the main character, is laying on a dock with Jesus looking at the stars. Watching shooting stars and talking about them. And in the book Jesus says "Wow thats awesome!" ?????????? Jesus said Awesome? Well ok Jesus can say anything hes Jesus! But I never imagined him to be "Cool" like that. But really wouldnt be really neat to hang out with him like friends and laugh and joke and have a good time. Have you ever thought of him like that? I never have. I have always imagined him so much more matter of fact kind of a man. Kinda dry. You know what I mean? Anyways this book is really great in showing God in a whole new way. How neat. It makes me want to achieve a relationship like that. Now I know the book is fiction and God isnt going to bake me pie and watch the shooting stars with me but I think if I could see him in that light it would do wonders for our relationship. I cant wait to read more and see what "Papa" has to say. But first! Pumpkin Pie!

But I need to gripe a second. I have a condition called PMDD. For those who dont know what it is, its sever PMS and it really does a number on my marriage and family. It really tears me up sometimes. So I take some great medication that helps me alot. You would never know I had it. Well I went today to pick up my prescription and they said that the insurance company wouldnt pay for it until the 28th. WHAT???? Its not like I am getting the pills every 2 weeks. I looked at my last bottle and the fill date is oct 12. Today is november 23rd. So over a month. Why the heck would they make me wait. This is the worst time to tell me I have wait a week before I can the medication. I cant afford to buy it from the pharmacy. I have been off the pills for 3 days and have noticed a huge difference in just a few days. I am so cranky. I was so mad when I had to drive to the pharmacy wait 15 minutes for them to open back up from lunch and then wait in line only to be told I wont be getting relief. See? cranky! My kids are driving me batty! I love them dearly but Faith loves to ask me 20 questions every hour on the hour. Usually I can handle it but right now I cant stand to listen to MOMMY? every few seconds for 15 minutes straight. I am so annoyed! My poor friend is scared to pick me up Friday for early Christmas shopping. Theres no telling what will happen if someone breaks in line or tries to take the toy I am trying to get. PRAY FOR ME!!!!
Well I am off to relax. Just had to warn you all that I am bound to be cranky in my posts this week. So just turn a blind eye to me pls. And Happy Thanksgiving!

I woke up to my radio alarm this morning to a blaring commercial. And in my half asleep state the one sentence that I heard before slamming the snooze bar was the following "to call your spouse Jeff Gordon press 2!" That was it. And that was enough to get both my hubby and I giggling, err..chuckling (guys dont giggle thats not manly) Now being awake for the past few minutes it has lost its hilarity. But still I wonder what kind of product they were trying to sell? Any ideas? So thats my Odd post.
This is an end because the end could be near for my daughter's school, well atleast for us. The county is apparently trying to re zone for a new school. "And thats a problem?" you ask. Well yes it is actually. Let me explain. I am close to her school now. How close? Like I can leave my driveway, drive to the school, wait in the drop off line and get back home in 10 minutes! That is, in my opinion, very close. So someone tell me why in the world would you rezone familys that are so close to the one school, for a totally different school 15+ minutes away? Someone please explain this to me. The only way I can explain it is if you live on one side of the railroad tracks you go to one school and if you are on the other side you go to the other. Dont get me wrong, Rose's school is very old and a brand new school is an awesome option but I have to handle 3 kids in the mornings who all want their own things at their own times. Charles has to get ready for work and cant take care of the kids. Sometimes I watch a classmate of Rose's in the morning too. So I am having to get 4 kids going in the morning. I dont have time to rush Rose and her friend, drive 15 minutes one way while Charles watches and deals with the other 2 kids. I still have to wait in line to drop her off and then drive back home. And I have to be able to get back home in time for Charles to get to work. My morning is jumping from the minute I wake up until about 9 am before I get a chance to even eat my breakfast. So No I dont agree with this rezoning. So for the first time I am going to a public school board meeting to voice my opposition to this. I am not the kind of person to buck the system so to speak. I am a very passive "whatever" sorta person. This will be out of my character. So wish me luck and pray I dont turn into a huge blob of goo when its my turn. I hate confrontation. So I am nervous. But think it will go well. They dont usually argue with the public so I might be in luck. I have til Dec 8th to come up with my 2 minutes of fame. I am off to type up my speech...well after I get all 4 kids going for school. I am SO late right now. LOL!!!! And yes it is only 630.

Also another couple I am thankful for is a couple I use to babysit for. God placed them in my path for a season. I love their son and enjoyed babysitting him. I was lucky enough to grow a relationship with them and I am very thankful for them. The wife was sweet enough to ask her hubby to come fix our heater that was broken. She sacrificed her family time to give us heat. I am so grateful to her for making that sacrifice. I am thankful to her hubby for fixing it and finally for the first time in weeks allowing us to be warm at night. I didnt have to wrap Allen up in layers of clothing and I didnt have to stress about Faith sleeping with no covers because she hates them! And Rose was able to sleep peacefully without Faith waking her up climbing in bed with her to stay warm. So thank you so much my friends for your generosity. I hope God blesses you more then you have blessed me.
I am also thankful for God bringing a young girl into our lives to babysit during the week. Its amazing how God works. This young girl is Rose's age, lives 3 doors up from us and is even in her 2nd grade class. I believe she was also in Rose's Kindergarten class. Now they get to play in the afternoons together 3 days a week! I get to make Christmas money and Rose and Faith have a friend to play with. And her mom even asked if I could help take some food off her hands that her mother overly blesses her with. So WOW! This week is full of blessings and so makes up for my horrible storm from the past few weeks. See? God always takes care of you just not in the way you would every expect! I am ever so thankful for God and his blessings. So what are you thankful for this Thankful Thursday?

Speaking of mommies, I would like to take a moment to offer up some huge congrats to a fellow blogger MckMomma She gave birth last week to a very healthy little boy, Stellan. What a cutie. You need to read her story about him. What a miracle she has and what a story and testimony she has to tell. I have been praying and following her for a few months now. And I was so glad to see the outcome that God has allowed in their lives. God is awesome and I stand in awe of him in times like these! GOD you rock! MckMomma, Hugs to you and Prince Charming! I love you and your family and you are in my heart and prayers daily! YAY! Stellan! Good job showing the world that science isn't exact and the only truth. Big Mac, McNugget and Small Fry, protect and love your brother everyday. Lots of toe tickles and forehead kisses too! HUGS TO YOU ALL!
Also a quick reminder, if you haven't voted tomorrow is the big day! I voted 2 weeks ago because I knew I would be busy taking care of Charles and the kids. I am nervous about the outcome. I am not getting into political discussion but I really hope my candidate wins. If not I am scared Charles will uproot us and move to Canada. UGH! So go vote tomorrow! If you need more inspiration to go, there are lots of places giving away free food to those who vote so go vote and then go eat! What a deal!

yes thats goldfish in his bowl. I guess I should specify next time.
And Candy of course! Last night was Halloween. And my neighborhood turns into the Halloween Woodstock! Candy lasts 5 minutes. And the kids racked up! We went trick or treating in our city's mainstreet. All the businesses get involved and hand out candy. So they got to trick or treat twice yesterday. My feet still hurt! My SIL and her crew along with my BFF Tracy came with her 2 great kids! So we became a very powerful part of the Halloween Woodstock in our neighborhood. Here are some pics:
