Busy Times

What a most everyone knows I work part-time at the JCPenney outlet store here and it is getting to that time of year that we are doing inventory and let me say it is just crazy...I am so glad that Jeremy is here to take care of the Emily and help Tanner with whatever he is doing at the time. I don't think that I could make it through without him...I thank God every night for blessing me with such a wonderful husband and friend. There are still times when I go all fuzzy inside just thinking about him...some old friends would always tease me when I would start to talk about him at work and they would always say that they could tell who I was talking about even if they couldn't hear what I was saying because of the smile on my face and the sparkle in my eyes...THANK YOU LORD!! When I need just a little encouragement Jeremy is right there to give it. I know that he loves our kids and would lay down his life for them if the need were to arise. Our lives tend to take on a crazy ride at times but I can always count on him to keep everything pulled together when it is needed. To hear him reading a book to Emily and turn around and be wrestling with Tanne just makes my world seem right. We are truly blessed to have such a strong faith and love for our Lord and each other. I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!

Family Time

Well I must say that I am glad it is Friday...It was a long and somewhat stressful week and you could just feel it from the kids at school as well as my husband and son. I am so glad that we can just hang out around the house and enjoy some down time. Tanner is camping with his cub scout troop and will be back tomorrow afternoon some time. So it's just me, Jeremy and Emily and she is keeping both of us on our toes...She demands so much of our attention and especially Jeremy' just makes me laugh when she calls out to him and how he caters to her every need...she is the "Princess" but I must say thatshe doesn't reign over the house...I am glad that we have a 3 day weekend-as I have said several times-and we don't have a whole lot to have to rush and do. I can just sit around the house and relax. I hope that everyone's weekend is very relaxing.

The beautiful sound

I am sitting here listening to my daughter play with her daddy and I just can't think of any other sound that I would rather be hearing. It is such an amazing thing to be able to enjoy such special times. I am so glad that the week is nearly over and that we have a 3 day weekend. It will be nice to be able to just sit and relax...well to an extent...I am so glad that the semester is almost over and that I will have just a little bit of down time before the first summer session. I really am ready for just some quality family time. I am just a little envious of my in-laws because as I am typing this blog they are headed out to Mayhill, NM to set up their travel trailer for their summer vacation. I am happy for them...that gives us a reason to go to the beautiful New Mexico mountains for some much needed down time during the summer...well about time for me to get the kids ready for bed and settle in for the night. Sleep well all...may the angels watch over you.

Happy Hump Day!!

I can't believe that it is already Wednesday and that tomorrow is May 1st!! Yesterday was such an interesting day with TAKS test going on and then there was a "fire" at school and I was going to be sacrificing life and limb because I couldn't find Tanner and I knew that he was down the hall where smoke had been seen but some other teachers grabbed him and took him out front. Thank you...thank you. From there I took him to football practice and tried to get just a little bit of studying done before I had to go get Emily and then it was off to cub about fast and furious...Today, not such an eventful day but getting closer to a 3 DAY WEEKEND!! I am looking forward to some "quiet" time and hopefully some really good studying...I take my last exam on Sunday and turn in my final essay on Tuesday and then thats it. Before you know it school will be letting out for the summer and thats when it will really be crazy!! Anyway, hope that someone else's week was just as crazy and eventful and if not...your missing out on life!! HAHA!!

Manic Monday

I must say that it was fast and furious today...trying to get everything taken care of before these dreaded TAKS tests. I only hope that everything goes well the next three days and that we don't have any major issues. Emily is so much better then she has been...she even slept almost the whole night last night. I know that with her not feeling well that she has had some troubles but I am hoping that things are getting back to normal. My best friend's little girl turns 1 on Thursday...can't hardly believe that it has been nearly a year since she was brought into this world. I am so excited about getting to see them in June...seems like the older we get, the harder it is to get together with them. I am counting down the days until I board a plane and spend just a few days with them and my wonderful husband!! Well it is that time of evening that I must get ready to feed the hungry crew!! Hope that all of you had a wonderful Monday and that the rest of the week is as uneventful and destressed as it can be!!

The Quite

After getting my children ready for bed and putting all of the other pets to bed for the evening it feels good to just sit and listen to the quite of the house. I got everything taken care of around the house and I was able to do just a little studying before I took my quiz and I feel really good about it. It is so nice to just sit and not worry about anything else for the rest of the evening. Hope everyone had a wonderful and restful weekend and that everyone is ready to start another productive week.

Another beautiful day here

After we finished cleaning the rest of the house and then deciding that we needed to clean the carpet in Emily's room I am finally able to sit down, do just a little bit of studying and prepare for a Texas History quiz. I can't believe that just another week and a half and the semester is over. There won't be much of a break because before I know it, it will be time to start the summer sessions but it is only a small price to pay for getting that much closer to finishing my degree. Even though the wind is blowing pretty good has still turned out to be another beautiful day...hope that everyone has a restful Sunday afternoon. Tomorrow its back to work...
