Bitter Sweet

Today is the last softball game before the tournament. So sad. I wish they played all year long. They are playing St. Elizabeth at Tate Park in Clinton at 6:00pm. If you want to play (cough Chris Nevins) you need to be there at 5:45pm. ;) Come on down and watch the game.

I have been wondering why I have not got any customers but it might help to turn the closed sign to open. Opps, maybe I'll get somebody in the next two and half hours.

Think Romance!

We are thinking about taking a nice anniversary vacation. I have thought of two different things. First go to Canada and get a cabin with a fireplace and do whatever you do up in Canada. The other is going on a cruise. I guess either way I am looking to leave the country. Just wondering if you guys might have any trips you and your other went on that you would recommend. Our anniversary is in November. I am just thinking (hoping and praying) that this may be our last "kidless" anniversary. So I want it to be a good one!

Why is it Wednesday?

Why is it that when you are hungry you get headache? What does my stomach have to do with my head? So then when I get a headache why don't I get hungry? Mmmm.

The value of a smile - It costs nothing but creats much. It enriches those who recieve it without impoverishing those who give. It happens in a flash and the memory sometimes lasts forever. It creats happiness in the home, fosters good will in business and is the counter sign of friends. It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and natures best antidote for trouble. It cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anyone till it is given away. And if in the hurry and rush of the busy day, you meet someone who is too weary to give you a smile, leave one of yous, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none left to give.

Not to Bad

Three jobs are not as bad as I thought. Really. I thought I'd feel stressed and run around like a crazy person, but very smooth for sure. I am really liking the new job. We have pretty much "sold" our first house over there and that is good. The bad is I do not get a check until it closes and it doesn't close until its built and its not built until they dig the basement and well you get the picture. I'll get a check maybe by Christmas. So in other words...Merry Christmas to me!

4 1/2 Hours Later and I am BACK!

Well today is the first day at my new job and it's going okay. Had a little trouble gettting connected to the internet, but here I am. Three basements have been dug and thats good. The digger can't wait to start the next three! Lots of truck and noises outside my little trailer though. I hope I get used to that. Its pretty silly to jump at every sound! Bad news is I am scared of the bathroom. The door stick and like Peter has told you before I am very scared of small spaces. So here I sit with 23 minutes remaining having to pee so bad it hurts! The fears in us! But my boss left and if I get stuck...blahh, blahhh, blahhh! Oh well something to get over another day. Pray for me that this job is what it is cracked up to be. I am really nervous about wasting my time. Although no ads out and I had two customers today! Have a great weekend and see all you wonderful people on Sunday!

I'm Going on a Diet!

  • Exercise my right not to gossip
  • Walk away from sin
  • Cut my negativty in half
  • Love until hurts

After that I think I might be fit for Heaven!

Only Four More

Softball is drawing to end with only 4 games left. Today we will be playing E Free at Tate Park. I really hope to see lots of people out there. Its a great outreach. SO REACH OUT CATCH THE BALL!

Better Late Then Never

Hope you all had a good weekend. Peter and I went to see his parents in W. Virginia. We got there late on Friday night. Saturday we went to a waterpark which was a lot of fun. Sunday we cooked out and that night we went to a drive in movie. That was a neat experience since I have never been to one. Monday we did a little shopping and came home. Tuesday we went golfing. I didn't do to bad. Today its back to work. How was your long weekend?
