Craziy Saturday

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Got home from reception set up around 9:30. Huge tent 30 x 90. First thought they'd built another addition. Will go out at 10 am to set up things on the tables and decorate with the fresh cut flowers. It will be a pretty wedding.

Rehearsal dinner was just a cook out at their house. It was a warm evening but it was fun talking and enjoying the they live in the county and it's just quiet and nice.

Thought I'd sleep in some as I don't have to leave until 9:30 but surprise woke up at 5:00 so might as well get a jump start.

Still need to pack for our trip. Planning to set up for reception come home and change for the wedding...pick mom up...go to wedding and reception for awhile...come home change put the suitcases in the car and head for our trip to visit our best friends..

Hubby's interview went well. They said he would hear from them if they want to proceed forward...if not he won't hear from them. Not sure if they will help with relocation or what type of package they might offer. Guess we will see. One step at a time. They work 12 hour days 6 days a week. Don't know if I'm ready for that again....hubby was in manufacturing around 10 years ago...that is a tough life...not much time for family life. We'll see what God has in store for us. Guess we are both open to changing our lives. Just praying that God lead us and give us direction for our lives.

Off to make it a great day!

Fabulous Friday

Friday, August 31, 2012

Well here we are to Friday. Set the alarm clock for an extra later. Figured I might need the extra rest. Stayed up later setting aside what to take on our trip. Have most of it laid out on guest bed...ready to pack.

Hubby tried on clothes for his interview today and we got it all hung up and ready to put on. He wanted to talk about it all so took time to talk about what if's...and trusting God to lead us. Part of me doesn't want to rip up 25 years of roots...farther away from Grandbaby arriving in November...yet part of me is ready to quit my job...not sure what we'd do with Mom whether to move her in with us and finding a place with a mother in law suite or another retirement community etc. And part of me hopes they offer him a job so we can have those decisions to make. At times I wish God would send down a Move...but then I probably would ignore it or do what I wanted anyway ha! ha!

After work heading over to friends and we'll carpool to our other friend's house to start setting up for reception. May end up going out early Saturday to put out the flowers etc. Wedding is at 2 pm. Then will come home get ready for wedding...pick up mom and off to the church. After staying at the reception for awhile....will take mom home...pack the car and head off for a 10 hour drive to our friends in Missouri. Looking forward to some time away. Taking Tues and Wed off work so looking forward to some down time. Planning a bike ride and whatever else we can get into.

Mom seems alright with us going out of town...for now. She seems in an up mood right now. We'll see what she's like afterwards...

Seems like we try to pack in every moment of living that we of my goals is to be sliding into heaven at just the last minute becauuse I was busy living life to it's fullest...not to be sitting around waiting to be called home.

Have been asked to lead a Ladie's Bible Study on Tuesday evenings. Might exchange Praise Team for teaching again. It's been a long while since I've taught and I'd like to get back into because it makes me study and holds me accountable for study....

Off to make it a great day!

Please pray that God directs us wherever He wants us to be. We are both seeking to do His will...regardless of where He sends us.

Thankful Thursday

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Been tired the last couple of nights after work. Didn't get much packing done. Mom walking down to get a perm and her hair fixed so she won't be going to Curves tonight. If I get my morning exercise in and lunch time walk...thinking of coming straight home and may have more energy to finish up packing for the weekend! Got a good start Tuesday night.

Hubby has interview Friday so need to look at his clothing for that.

Woke up early with all kinds of thoughts running through my head.

Off to make it a great day!

    Hmmm, news about hubby cause I disregarded the possibilty, but am praying he will work. Mom, I just don't know how you do it, but, yes, some days are better than others. I agree 100% that today is a thankful Thursday! Thanks for arising in the A.M. with me.

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

The week is going fast. Starting to pack for the long weekend. Got Mom to Curves last night. Hubby had taken her grocery shopping yesterday and she was tired but she made it through working out. Doing a little better on the machines now that we are going more regularly.

Hubby has job interview on all happens at once. Mixed feelings as it's too far away to drive each day....would mean a move...been a long while since he's had an interview and it's an in person we'll see what God has planned for us. Wouldn't be our preference...and 2.5 hour farther away from upcoming grandbaby...what to do with Mom...move her in with us or look for another place for her and move would be disruptive to her....would mean a lot of decisions...but it's just an interview for now. So we will trust God to lead us where he wants us. The interview would be good experience for him too.

We have the wedding rehearsal dinner that night and setting up for wedding will be a little crazy Friday night. Things usually happen all at once with us

Off to Serve The Lord wherever He takes me today!

  Your vacation will give you time to rest, and when we are quiet God speaks. Maybe that is what you need.

    Holiday will give you much time to think. Still exciting that DH got an offer. My hubby who was in that unemployable position got offers about an hour away. Lots of stress and that is less than you Dh needs to consider. I would not move. I did it once and it doesn't make sense at the age involved. Perhaps they have an offer closer or can recommend someone with his credentials a lead.
Who knows where this might go? I don't but God does as He works things out for your family.

    The Lord takes us to places we have never seen before. Tell hubby good luck on the job interview. Could be Kathleen if this happens it's the better thing for everyone involved. Does the new town have a Curves??? Have a great day ~ Donna
