Yeah, imagine that, life is supposed to go on hold when we don't feel well, right! Lol! This past Friday we had to go to court to deal with issues concerning the ex wife and kids. That is pretty stressful in itself. Then I think I mentioned MIL is moving. Well praise Jesus, she found her on apartment. (She was going to have to move in with us) My prayers have been answered on that front. I love her, but well you get the picture right!
During all this life happening, and work I have had piling up (I work mostly from home) Hubby and I did manage to go to a movie yesterday. We saw The Taking of Pelham 123. Very intense action movie. It was pretty good, and it stars two of my favorite actors, John Travolta and Denzel Washington. Ummm, now I'm thinking, since I went to see that one, Hubby should go see The Proposal with me.
I apologize for not getting back to everyone, I am working on that, things just have piled right up. You know I try to respond to all your comments and visit your blogs in turn. I am thinking up an idea about my give-a-way, so stay tuned on that.
Thanks for being concerned about me. Some of you have sent me emails and such, I just haven't felt like evening dealing with blog world until today! You guys are great!!

It's 3 days into our new eating plan, (not gonna call it a diet) and we are doing pretty well. So, tonight we are just gonna kick back and watch Burn Notice and the new show Royal Pains. I love the shows on USA network.
I want to get involved in a summer Bible study group, but so far none are going on. Maybe everyone at church thinks we would be to busy to attend a group study.
Well, better go. Have a great night. Oh, hopefully soon, I will be getting a digital camera. Can't wait. :)
In Christ Love,

We have done this kind of diet change before with much success, but with the holidays and all we certainly slipped on the sugar aspect. We felt so much better when we were doing this diet change. My Mama even recently went to the doctor and he told her to do the same kind of diet. So stay tuned to find out how it goes. I would like to lose 30 pounds.
Well, it seems it's getting close to my 100th post and I think it's customary to do a give a way. If you have any suggestions on how to do one I would love to know. How do you keep up with every one's points or whatever? That's my biggest question.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Hubby and I found out about each other through eHarmony. (We actually met face to face in Atlanta) So it's a reliable thing I think. My Mama also wants to get set on eHarmony. We are going to have the whole gang on there! LOL!
Friday night the kids came over and well, they were 45 min. late. This is an on going issue we have and I basically have just given up worrying about it. We had BBQ'd and we were waiting for them to get here. I was standing at the kitchen sink, washing a dish, and Hubby was on the deck. I heard this loud squeaking noise and I asked hubs what it was. I thought our cat had caught a bird.
Elvis (the cat) walked right up to the glass door with a thing in his mouth. At first, I thought it was a rat, but then I realized it was a baby rabbit. Hubby called out to Elvis to drop it and he did. Into the house hopped the bunny. I started screaming and it was hopping around. You should have seen it. I wish we had it on video. Then the kids arrived. The bunny was hiding behind the TV. We moved it and it hopped behind the couch. The chase was on. Around through the dining room, living room, back around to the den.
Mania rained and screaming was pouring out of the house. All over a cute baby rabbit. Finally I got the bright idea to get a towel and throw it over the baby and pick it up and put it out. But once it was outside on the front porch, it wouldn't move. I think it was scared to death.
About 15 min. later, Amber comes up to me with the watering can I keep out on the porch, it had the baby rabbit in it. She wanted to keep it. (Oh NO!! I said, we can't keep it) But she put it in a shoe box with grass and stuck it in the downstairs bathroom. (out of Elvis's way) I called some wildlife organizations, but it being a Friday night, got no answer.
I finally managed to talk Amber into putting the baby rabbit back outside so it's mama could find it. We placed it in the backyard next to the fence. Hopefully there was a joyful family reunion. Baby Bunny was gone the next morning.
That's just a taste of life in the suburbs my friends. It's not always dull. Ha!!
I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Kaydee Bug Well, enough about that. We got up this morning early 6ish. and went to pick up my Mama, Sister and 2 nieces. My oldest niece Kaydee has epilepsy and she had to go to a pediatric neurologist in Peoria. We made a day of it. All went well with the appointment, but Kaydee does have to another EEG and MRI done in July.
Tonight Hubby and I are just being couch potatoes in front of the TV. Burn Notice season premiere comes on tonight. We have been anxiously awaiting the first episode.
So I will go for now and kick my feet up and watch Michael Weston, take on the bad guys. :)

What's a Dad to do? Does he forfeit the precious little time he has with his children, because of scheduling difficulties? We have done this in the past, but when he wants to make up his time, that causes a problem too. We actually have a court date coming up on this very matter. I just wish it could all be settled in a grown up manner!
We found out tonight that Niko has a baseball game schedule at 5pm. on Saturday. Hubby has been pretty accommodating with the ball season, but we already had something planned for the kids to do while they are at our house this coming weekend. (That's another gripe bio-mom has, she says the kids are bored at our house.) So we have planned somethings for this weekend.
Hubs called and left bio-mom a message (she had middle daughter call and play message girl)! So who knows how this weekend is going to end up! All this drama is killin' me. I do know, that I think I'm developing an ulcer with all this.
Well, so sorry to bring ya'll into our private drama! I just had to vent for a little bit.
I know that the Lord isn't gonna give me anything that, with Him, I can't handle! I know that I'm in this family for a reason! I just get so tired of it all sometimes.
Thanks for listening!
In Christ Love,
Mama is feeling good and we all appreciate your prayers immensely. Now she has to have an EGD and colonoscopy. She has had some blood in her poo. (sorry to be so descriptive) But, well, it's a concern. Since she has moved to Illinois, she of course has had to find new Doc's and well she is getting a full work up. That's a good thing.
On another note, you may remember that my blog friend Grits Girl. Her Daddy's test came back, his cancer has not spread, (praise Jesus) and he will be having surgery on the 24th (I think). So please continue to pray for him.
For a short moment today, my blog actually loaded like it was supposed to. I was so excited. But then for some reason, I refreshed it, and well it didn't do again. Back to square one. I am sure it's gonna be fixed soon though. I can post, but I can't see my main page.
I hope ya'll have a good Tuesday afternoon. School is almost out around here. The kids get out on June 10th. My nieces June 2nd. So lots of summer looms ahead.

If you happen to have any suggestions, I would appreciate it!
On to a more positive note, I am starting a Bible study on Judges and Ruth. The last time I tried to read the Bible through, I got bogged down in Judges. So I am hoping that the Bible study helps.
I came across this blog Prayers For Rance. It's about a young guy who got hurt pretty bad in an accident. Please visit if you get a chance and offer prayers and encouragement.
I hope ya'll have had a great start to your week.
