Well - today I was getting dressed & pulled out a pair of denim walking shorts to wear for the last day of Vacation Bible School. I was shocked to see that I could fold over the waist about 3 inches. But I proudly donned those shorts for ONE l... Read more
Well - I survived the power outage last night! The power company said the power should come back on by midnight (went off @ 7:40PM). So as it got darker & darker, I did have candles out - but it was hot. I ended up showering & washed my hair ... Read more
A Pioneer woman I am not!
Had a busy day, after work ran errands, got home, had a light dinner - thunderstorms moved in - electricity out! Interesting because we seldom lose power in my neighborhood - our electrical wires are underground. This usually means there's a t... Read more
It was a good day today. Busy, but good. As our Vacation Bible School began I saw so many (over 800) children all excited & just wondering what today would hold. As they were leaving there were lots of happy kids & smiling faces.

Well - it happens to the best of us....we just keep going & going like the energizer bunny & then, suddenly you realize that you're pooped; tired; worn out! I hit the worn out wall this afternoon! LOL! Oh well, hopefully nothing a good nights... Read more
Help. My clothes are falling off & I couldn't be happier!
It's true - my body seems to change daily. Things I bought in early June are now SO big I'm cleaning them out of the closet...actually things I bought 2 weeks ago are crazy big too. All my pants I've been wearing are hilarious looking - but i... Read more
I am a pretty determined person when it comes to certain things. Hmmm - I am determined to keep my home in order; that means closets clean, cabinets & drawers in order, etc. I am determined when it comes to moral issues, my faith, my family. ... Read more
The Power of our Words
A couple of days ago I saw this awesome 12 minute DVD about the power of our words. While there wasn't one thing said I didn't really know it was an awesome reminder of how our words have the power to "build up" or "tear down".
How many ... Read more
Well - after losing almost 50 pounds this year - almost 5 sizes, I still have people say, "You've lost weight? Really?" One lady said to me yesterday "your face looks so much thinner" - my face??? Really? My butt is completely flat; my stoma... Read more
The cool down - weather only!
Well - supposedly today begins the cool down for my part of the country - temperature wise that is! It had been so miserably hot since the 3rd week of June. Temps over a 100 for us isn't our usual summer - we're usually in the high 90's with 1... Read more
Okay, so I've been back on a stricter diet these past two weeks. I've done well, but as most of us, I'd like it to be more. My first week I lost 8 pounds - then last week 1/2 pound. I know 8.5 pounds in 2 weeks is really good, so I shouldn't ... Read more
I need a nap - I'm tired & sleepy! I wake up early most days, but usually can go back to sleep for awhile before getting up & ready for work. But on Sundays, because I work at a church, I have to be there by 7am. I get up by 5am & leave my ho... Read more
Decisions, decisions, decisions
I hate being indecisive - I'm a thinker and like to think it out (quickly usually), make a decision, set a plan in motion and get on it! That's how I roll.
But then there are times that it's not a HUGE deal. For example, I have been on an... Read more
Hope is in sight!
There's always hope - right? The Bible says that without hope, we have no future. There's always hope!
Yet hope, without action is nothing but a dream. We hope we have enough money to pay our bills each month - but IF we spend unwisely,... Read more

I'm not used to being home on Wednesdays, so I was so confused yesterday about today being Thursday, not Saturday (my day off is Friday) - but my mind got straightened out & I'm showered, clothes ready to go, coffeed up! Just gotta get ready & ... Read more
