About two years ago ย my Mother In Law encouraged me to write down ten things that I’m thankful for every morning, to get the day started right. I did it for awhile, and then for some reason I quit. I’m starting again this morning, at least ten things that I’m thankful for every morning. You should join me!

1: My family

2. An amazing Bible study

3. The video that gave me the giggles this morning

4. Our friends out here

5. Our friends back in CO

6. Food

7. A Car

8. Electricity

9. Facebook (does this mean I’m addicted????)

10. That I can just get my GED since I’m having a heckuva time getting my transcripts from my high school

I feel better already ๐Ÿ™‚


Another one from the department of things you don’t hear everyday. October 19, 2009

I’m working on getting into the college here for spring semester, and the kids are absolutely fascinated at the thought of Rob or I going to school. So yesterday morning out of nowhere, Aidan says this:

“Dad, when you get out of school what will your new job be?”

Rob: “I don’t know”

Aidan: “I hope it’s ballet!”

Jillian said her first word about six weeks ago. Dad. It actually sounds more like dadad. But, she definitely means she wants her dad when she says it.

Tonight, I discovered one, maybe two more. She says YEAY very clearly, and tries to clap, but the poor kid isn’t quite coordinated enough to get her hands together yet. Usually she claps her feet together, or claps her hand on her thigh. And, I think she might be saying mom, but I’m not totally sure on that one yet.

I love first words!


Check it out! October 2, 2009

The most interesting compliment I have EVER received! September 28, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — justspeaz @ 9:07 pm

For the last seven years I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my gall bladder. Make that dislike/hate relationship with it. I did all the natural cleanses and things that you’re supposed to do to help get rid of the stones, but they never seemed to work. So, this summer, I decided that I’d had enough, and made myself an appointment with a Dr to start the process of having it removed.

The surgeon she referred me to, is well loved in this town, and therefor, has a pretty long list to get in for a consult. Last Tuesday, after waiting my two months to get it. He said “Yes, you have stones, you have two choices, go ahead and have it taken out, or keep doing what you’re doing.” He went on to explain complications that came along with each option. But, I’d been doing what I’d been doing for the last seven years, and I’ve had enough!So, I told him schedule the surgery, hoping I could have it done by Christmas. He pulled out his calendar, and said “How about Monday?”

So, short story long, I had my gall bladder removed today. When Dr. G, came into do my discharge papers. He said to me:

“You have a phenomenal liver! It’s so beautiful all the nurses are jealous!”

Ha ha, is that what they mean when they talk about internal beauty?


The thing is, I really love this blog. September 27, 2009

I’ve been contemplating getting back into the blogging habit for a few days now. Tonight, Rob is gone, the kids are in bed. So, I thought I’d sit down and write something. It’s been a very long time.

So, I started by just reading through all my old entries. And, I love it. I’ve poured a lot of myself into it. It brings back fun memories of the last 14 or so months, and I want to keep it up. I want to be able to look back in 14 more months, and have more fun memories.

So, here is my goal: I’m going to blog at least every other day for the rest of the year. At first I was thinking I’d try everyday, but better under promise, over deliver ๐Ÿ™‚ย  They won’t always be long, some might just highlight another blog I think is cool. Some might just be Wordless Wednesdays, or Favorite Comment Fridays, but I’m going to give it a go!

Want to join me? I sure hope so!
