Just Do It!!

I'm ashamed to admit, that last night I just lay on the couch in defeat.

The next month of my life is filled almost to the minute.  I felt overwhelmed.  I have two weddings to attend (I'm really excited about both of these :) ), one a few states away, Girls Camp for church (with many projects for that to finish), I will be driving to California with the kids,  we are taking the kids to Bear World, I keep getting calls for PTA fundraisers, I am PTA President this year so there is the first meeting (and coming up with the agenda for that, which has me feeling a little nervous), I need to meet with our principal still, the first day of school, ballet registration, middle school registration, and to top it all off, the printer wouldn't work.

When Ed came home from work he thought he was alone, because it was so quiet.  He helped with the printer and labels for Girls Camp, and I felt better.  Check one thing off of my list.  It occurred to me late last night, that if I would "just do it", I could start checking more things off my list, and I would feel better.

That's what I will be doing from here on out.

Just do it!!!  Get it done, and cross it off the list.

The "Right Click"

There should be a new feature on the right click.  It could be labeled Pinterest.  I know, I'm a super genius.

By Small and Simple Things

A couple weeks ago I was shopping for Donny.  He has grown quite a bit and needed new everything.  All the prices were high, and I was even looking on the clearance rack.  I thought, "Why can't I find a pair of shorts for $3?"  Then, no kidding, the next pair of shorts on the rack were $3!  I immediately prayed and thanked God.  I knew it was from Him.

By small and simple things are great things brought to pass.  My testimony of my Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ grew again that day.

Meat Loaf

Since Ed has become sick, we have found different things that trigger his pain.  Beef is one of these things.  I didn't love beef, but when we took our vacation to Florida in 2001, he introduced me to Charlie's Steakhouse.  And, well, I love beef now. 

Of all the foods I miss, meatloaf has to be the one I miss the most.  It just doesn't taste right made with ground turkey.  And I wouldn't dare make a meatloaf for myself!  I'd have to buy bigger pants the next day.

No real point to this post, I just love...and miss, meatloaf.
