See you next year.

By the time you hear from me again, we will have sold our house and moved into our new house. I can't wait only 1 week away. We do our walk-through today. I'll post pictures later. Let me just tell you how awesome God is. His timing is perfect. I'm glad the other 2 offers on our house fell through. Instead of having to store our stuff and move in with my mom, he has worked it out to where we are closing withing a week of each other and we will get to move directly from one house to the next. Awesome.

Also on a side note. Just wanted to tell my husband THANK YOU. You have truly been amazing this week. Thanks for washing, drying, hanging all the clothes, cooking, cleaning out the fridge, packing, staying home with the girls on your days off. Thank you.

Which reindeer are you?

You Are Dancer

Carefree and fun, you always find reasons to do a happy dance.

Why You're Naughty: That dark stint you had as Santa's private dancer.

Why You're Nice: You're friendly. Very friendly.

Smarter than the average bear

Joe Barbera one the the creators of "Tom & Jerry", "Yogi Bear", "the Flinstones", "Huckleberry Hound and Friends," "Top Cat," "Scooby-Doo," "Johnny Quest," "The Jetsons" and "Animal Follies", passed away yesterday. Let me just say the days that I spent watching these shows were hours well spent. I can still remember getting a highlighter and highlighting each day what shows I would watch. I need to get my kids a dvd of Tom & Jerrry. Now that my friends was a good cartoon, no voices and simply funny.

Bad Words

The other day Isabel was upset at me.
Belle: Do you want me to say that bad word again?
Me: What bad word?
Belle: You know "I don't want to be your friend anymore" that one.

Belle and Emma were fighting over something.
Belle said "but I had it first"
I said "So!"
Belle said "Don't tell me so, that's a bad word. Do you want me telling you so?"
I said "You're right, I'm sorry"

Now I have to try and elimate that out of my vocabulary, that or find a substitute.

Our Deepest Fear

Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson
from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles
(also quoted in the movie Akeelah and the Bee)

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

The Other Side

Costco Adventures

I only have 2 kids. 3 and 2 years old. Going to costco can be an adventure. The one thing that I like about Costco is that it's cart is big enough to put two kids in the front of the basket. I dread going by myself with the girls. This is how it goes. The girls love to play which is fine but their playing includes alot of screaming, hugging, hitting, laughing, loud talking, more screaming, some crying, etc.....

I on the other hand am trying to concentrate on the shopping, and being ADHD, it is very difficult for me to concentrate on something with alot of other distractions. So I get fustrated, and can't wait to get out of costco. I try to ignore them, try to confort them, try to tell them to be quiet, try to be firm, try to threaten, nothing works for a long period of time. Then I get fed up and leave.

Yesterday we went to costco as a family, and my husband got to experience what I experienced. Am I just letting my kids have too much fun in the store? It's not like they are running around like animals? How do your kids act in the grocery store?

And the story continues...

Guess what? Eddie found my charger to my camera. It was in a wire basket in a kitchen cabinet. This was after I went to batteries plus, bought a $60 charger. Got back to work and realized that the AC adapter didn't work. Took it back to the store where I found that indeed it does work. Returned it anyways because if I didn't find mine, I could order one online for like $14. As I was heading back to work wondering how in the heck I was going to charge my batteries, I got the phone call from my hubby. It was the sweetest 3 words I had heard all day. "I found it".

Daily Bread:
The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.

My Middle Name? I lost it

I am always loosing everything. I can't find the charger to my camera and I need it. Both batteries are completely dead. The girls are performing in a Christmas program at school and I want to take pictures. So I'm just going to have to buy another one. That sucks.
Anyways, I finished making my Christmas gifts. Finally. I can't say what it is, because my family reads this blog. But they are great. Tomorrow I can hopefully post pictures of my little angels.

Daily Bread:

Cast all your anxiety on God because he cares for you.

His Timing. Part 1

We had been looking to get Isabel the Barbie Sounds so sweet trike from Fisher Price. I found it on for 34.00 plus shipping. Then thought I found it on craigslist for $15 but it had already sold. We waited. We searched high and low, walmart, target, toys r us, everywhere, and we could not find it anywhere. So back to SOLD OUT! Well I accepted the fact that Isabel wouldn't be getting one after all. Then last night Eddie called and told me that he found it and the boy one for sell in Ft Worth. The guy is selling both together for $10. Isn't God great. Now we have to figure out who we are going to give the boy one to.

Another ADHD Moment

This morning was going well until after I left the house, I realized that I left my purse at home. Eventhough as I was walking out. I said to myself "Self, don't forget your purse". Well I put everything I had in my hands in the car, I put the girls in the car. I even went back in to get their poptarts. But I forgot my purse. That means: No makeup, no money. Then I got to the girls school 40 min. later and realized that Emma’s coat was not in the car. I on the other hand had 3 coats in the car. I was going to stop by my mom’s to get some makeup, but I felt so bad about leaving Emma’s coat at home, that I just went straight to work. If she doesn’t get a coat, I don’t get makeup. Luckily I brought my lunch.

Wednesday, December 06, 2006's that time again

Well I've gotten 2 of my gifts this year. My husband bought me a new stero for my car. It has a cd player and a auxilary input for my ipod. I love it. My grandma ordered me this book, but won't come out until Jan 07. I loved the first book by this author, and have been waiting a year for this one to come out in paperback. It's a murder/suspense book. I've gotten the gift making almost done and most of the shopping done. Still got to go sing at a nursing home, and pass out candy/nut bags to a low income neighborhood. Parties to attend and give. Packing and moving to do. This is going to be a busy month.

Finally got in

Ok, I got my blogger back up and running again.... I've been away for so long.

Still haven't closed on selling our house. The lender wanted another apprasial. That was done on Monday. It's Wednesday, and we still haven't heard anything. I have faith that God will work this out in his perfect timing.

The last I heard, we should be closing on our new house in the last week of December, I'm of course hoping for sooner.

Verse of this day:

I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?
Jeremiah 32:27

From another PC

Can log into the new blogger beta from my pc, so using another pc. Will work at trying to fix the issues. Until then, adios.
