More ramblings. Seriously??

It seems like all my blogs are snippits or ramblings. It's easier that way. I get all my info down all in one swoop. Since I don't blog as often as I should or do, I can cover all my bases. Don't know why I thought you needed to know that...but....there, now you do.

I just realized that Reid needs his sports physical....like yesterday. So, I made an appointment for tomorrow. On his 14th birthday to get a physical. Is that wrong? I mean he might have to *cough*. But, don't tell him that, He will freak. He's a freaker like his mom. (Is freaker even a word?) Anyway, I can't believe he is going to be 14. I feel old today.

We still haven't done the school shoe shopping thing....I am holding off as long as I can. Oh, the stress.

House still hasn't sold.

Frustrated doesn't even begin to cut it. But I still have faith that God is in control and he will provide.

My niece Kristen is here visiting us and we are having a blast. We have a lot of things planned. Of course shopping is one of those things. YIPEE! I think today we are going to Splash*Town. :)

Last night we had our annual church lock in for the youth group. I helped out and took Macy and Kristen with me. They had so much fun. Macy was up way too late. Well, we all were for that matter. Can you say tired and crazy? It was a blast and we have such as awesome group of kids in our group. I feel really blessed for Reid to be a part of such a wonderful group of kids. Oh, and our youth minister....AWESOME guy! He is wonderful with the kids and they all look up to him so much. And his lessons ROCK! Blessed! Reid has had a slow go of getting involved because he is so shy. But this year he seems to be opening up more and participating more. It makes me happy because I think that is such an important time for these kids. Also, to have christian friends to help keep you accountable is a wonderful thing. I mean I'm not saying they are all perfect but at least they are raised the same way and are striving for the same goal. Do I make ANY sense what so ever? Any who, there were a lot of dodge ball games, balloon popping games, singing, eating, chasing each other, talking, wonderful lessons, laughing and the all famous Romans and Christians...which is really just hide and seek and its their fav...I mean how many times do you get to run through the auditorium, in the pitch dark, running like crazy people and getting to hide under the communion table? I mean seriously. Fun times!

Alright....off to start my day!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" Philippians 4:6-7

Saturday Stuff that might bore you....

*I can't believe summer is almost over. One. more. week. Where in the world did it go? Well, ready or not, school starts in a week and ask me if I am ready....um, no. Macy picked out her shoes and a few outfits and Reid picked out a couple of things but guess what....no shoes! Oh, that boy. It will take me a whole day of walking the mall and telling him to HURRY AND MAKE A DECISION in order for him to find a pair of shoes. Every year!! Breathe and pray....

*Somedays don't you feel like you could stay in your jammies all day....today is one of those days for me.

*We have another showing today. We have had quite a few this month and still nothing. It looks like the kids will start school at their old schools until we figure out what we will do. I just can't make that drive to the new school everyday not knowing. I hate not knowing. I still trust God and his plan for our family but its hard to understand at times. There is a plan and I have full confidence in that....

*The new house is coming along. It is really neat to see it coming together right before our eyes. We have gone there to check on it some but have tried hard not to get to excited. That is the part I am most upset about. This is supposed to be fun and exciting but instead we are nervous and scared. Where is the fun in that?

*I have been staying up way too late this summer...I need my routine back.

*We just got back from a FUN road trip....just me and the kids....we went to see some very dear friends. They moved away about 4 years ago and we still miss them terribly! The kids LOVE getting together every summer. And so do the mommies! We get out of the car and they pick up like they had just seen each other. And so do the mommies! That makes my heart happy.

*I seriously need to go to the gym today....anyone have some motivation for me? ha!

*Troy turned 40 this month!! Isn't that crazy! And to think, I met him when he was 17. Now, that is crazy. I love that man and am so blessed to have him as my husband. He is also one awesome daddy! The kids think he hung the moon....and I think that, too! The way he takes care of us, provides for our family and loves us is one of God's truest blessings.

*Oh, did you know that peppermint mocha creamer is already at the store?? Hurry up and go get you some! It's deelish!

*Have a happy weekend and a good REST of the summer. It will be Christmas before we know it....YIKES!

......and just in case I bore you too much....WAKE UP!
