Hiatus

Today I am “officially” starting to pack my things and because of this, I will not have the time that I would like to update daily. I should return some time in January. Hopefully by then I will have a place and settled in somewhat.

On to new and better things! Yay!

I’m Back…Missed Y’all!

It seems like forever since I have posted…and in a way it has. I had no internet for a while and it totally sucked.  I had to do all my bible study research on my phone and after a few days I had to stop. It was getting a bit frustrating. Then I got sick. I mean 102 degree fever and had no one to watch these kids sick! But God is good! Normally when I try to take a nap in the living room, I am disturbed about every 5 – 10 minutes from one or two things: One of the kids come to wake me to tell on the other or I hear them fighting. It never fails. The only time I can sleep is if I go to sleep when they are napping. Well, when I was really feverish and weak, I had pulled out the futon (that took forever because the futon is made out of a good solid wood), slapped a sheet and got my pillows and blanket and went to sleep. I slept the first time for an hour straight with no disturbances. The kids were right where I left them when I fell asleep, in front of the TV. Lol! I got them lunch and a snack and went right back to sleep after they were done. Woke up an hour later and they were playing quietly in their room.  It was like this the entire day and it was only the grace of God that allowed me to get the sleep I needed for the day. A week later when I was better, I tried to take a nap again in the living room, no dice!

I took a week off (last week) after that whole ordeal because I needed time to catch up on the things that I couldn’t do while I was sick.  That meant a lot of dishes (and no dishwasher), laundry that needed to take care of and catch up on my bible study (well, the research part of it). Now that things are in order (at least what I can control for the moment) I can blog again while enjoying this rainy weather and this big mug of tea right next to me.

I hope y’all have a great day!

God Bless!

No Internet

Sorry for the lack of posts, I don’t currently have internet at the moment and have no idea when it will be back in service. Posting from my phone is a pain and a extremely slow process. But as soon as I can get service I will be posting once again!

Keep me in your prayers as I will keep you in mine. Have a blessed week and enjoy your day.

God Bless!

Off the Grid

For the rest of the week, I’ll be off the internet and will not be posting. I have some things to take care of that will take up a majority of my time (aside from my munchkins 😀 ) and I need to focus my energies on that. I wish you all a great week and weekend. I will see you all on Monday.

I will leave you with this verse of the day from YouVersion: The Bible App

Mark 12:30 NLT

And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’

If you want to get the app, it’s for Android and iPhone and you can get it through my “Links” page at the top of my page. I’ve also updated it with some new links, check it out!

If anyone is in need of prayer, the invitation is open. You can respond to this post or contact me via my “Contact Me” at the top of this page as well. Any time you need, just ask.

Well of to handle some business…plus get something to eat. It’s almost 11am and I haven’t ate yet.

God Bless!

Wacky Weather/Adventures in Potty Training

I am not a fan of the weather anymore. When I was younger something new about the weather was going on, I was enthralled. I remember my brothers and I watching the heavy rain for hours — not saying a word to each other and eventually taking a nap after a while. I also remember watching it rain across the street while the side I was on was dry as a bone and sunny. I remember the first snow during Thanksgiving and not in the middle of January.  I miss when we had actual seasons and you knew it was time to put winter clothes away. Right now it is cold and wet….colder than normal. Last week was nice and warm, the way it should be. Now I am in a sweater, the heat is on and I don’t know whether I should put away any of our winter clothes as yet.

“Lord, please give us warm weather!!!”

Potty training. Hmm. I didn’t do it with my first two boys so I missed all the antics that come along. Well now that I have my last son, I kinda wish that I could skip this part. It is funny in its own right but sometimes it can be downright frustrating…especially now that I am teaching him that boo-booing in the toilet doesn’t take a few seconds. The week before last was adventurous. Before I bought pull-ups a few days ago, I wanted to make sure that he was consistently going to the toilet to pee. (Men: It is very important for your sons to watch you use the toilet. It makes a lot of sense, y’all have the same parts!)  He’s was at a point where he was dry all day, except for naps of course. He didn’t wear a pamper at all during the day at home. He had 2 accidents and after that he would rush to the toilet to pee. Even when he did have pampers on, they would be dry as a bone. Anyway, teaching him how to boo-boo in the toilet has been very messy. The first time he did, I was in the kitchen washing dishes. He ran to the bathroom yelling “I gotta go boo-boo mommy!” I said to him ok and to sit on the toilet until I get there. I only had a few more dishes to wash and didn’t think that he would be done before then. Boy, I was sorry.

I walked into the bathroom to see him with toilet paper in his hand trying to wipe his butt. (He’s only 3) I went to look in the toilet and saw a WIDE skid mark on the seat and a “boulder” in the bowl. I turn around and he is holding up his hand saying, “Mommy, I have boo-boo on my finger. I need to wash my hands”. I said ok let me clean this up first. So I went back in the kitchen and got the Clorox wipes and started cleaning. All the while, he has got his finger in the air. Then I went to get the baby wipes to clean him up. Man! I fixed him up and we went over to the sink to wash his hands. All the while I am talking to him about the importance of following directions, that toilet paper is not for kids, and that he did a good job with the toilet.

I didn’t laugh at all during the whole ordeal but when I called my mom to tell her about his potty training progress, I cried laughing. I couldn’t stop laughing. Tears were running down my face, sentences weren’t finished and there were some parts that were unintelligible. I hadn’t laughed so hard in a long time that even after the phone call I was still laughing about it.

Parenthood is funny!

God Bless!

TAX DAY!!! YAY!!!

I know you are not that enthusiastic of the significance of today…buuuut, today is the deadline to e-fiIe or mail your return in. I do remember one time in the late 80s/early 90s, my family and I were watching the evening news on the 16th and watching 30 – 40 men and women crowded around this lone mail truck parked in front of one of the many buildings that lined Wall Street. These people were tearing each other apart trying to get the poor postal worker stuck inside to post mark it the 15th so they wouldn’t be penalized for it being late. According to the reporter who was there that night, that was filmed only a few minutes before midnight. I could only imagine the type of “tips” the postal worker was getting that night. Who is to say that he did what he was “paid” to do? Anyways, I hope none of you are going to wait until the last minute. In my case, I had to file an extension. The first time that I had ever done that. Apparently, when we moved last year, some of the mail didn’t get forwarded and that included some W-2s we needed for this return. So tomorrow I have to hunt down some paperwork. Yay!

Be careful out there and have a great day.

God Bless

Formatting

Hey fellow readers,

Though you are few, I want to thank you. I didn’t think that I would have as many as I do in the little time that I have started. Thank you. I was thinking late last night (or early this morning) while watching Lord of the Rings: Twin Towers, that I think that I should set a format to what I post daily…Even if it is a loose one. One thing I know that I will keep is my ‘Recipe Time!’ posts since those are always a big hit. If you have any suggestions, please comment and let me know. This is going to be my task for the day and starting next week, I will implement the changes. It is still anything goes…but if I have an idea of what I will be doing….blogging will be that much easier for me.

Thanks in advance and God Bless!
