I can tell when my kids stumble, and I can tell when they jump. I can tell when they love me and truly desire mercy, and when they were being malicious and are just sorry the got caught.

I wonder what the workers next door are saying...it's all in Spanish. They are all so quiet when I walk outside, but when I'm inside, they are LOUD. Do they really think I can't hear through the windows on that side of the house? I don't really care, it's just amusing. I think they need to be done bricking that house so they can get back to working inside where they'll be quiet. Tomorrow's naptime doesn't need to end up with my kid coming out of his room 15 times hollaring in Spanish.

When ur kids turn about 9, lock them in the house with you and homeschool them. The only contact they need with the outside world is when you are with them. Therapy for social difficulties as an adult have to be better than whatever they can do to destroy their futures as a teenager. This is ridiculous!!!

I am about to start or try something new.

I've always wanted to try my hand at short skits. Like in church. I've never really told many people that because I am terrified and excited about it at the same time.

I have an opportunity at church to do just that, so I'm gonna give it a shot. I'm working through the nerves involved.

The kicker is I have to write the mess myself. I'm not good at that part. Shouldn't there be like a book of skits that I can just pick one from? I mean, why write something if somebody else already has and it's good? That's what I think. But I'm gonna give it a shot.

We'll see what happens.

lots of stuff

This is likely to be a really long post. Or if I get tired of typing, it might not be so long....who knows?

We have moved to Melissa. We have a gorgeous new house that I am totally in love with. God has blessed us so much lately. It's amazing. Simply amazing.

I have the most precious 3 year old son ever! He had his birthday and we just went to Chick fil A for him and then came home and opened presents. It was easy and no mess.

The other kids are awesome, too. Both boys are changing schools and will be at Melissa Middle School on Tuesday for the start of the second semester of their 8th grade. Emily is in 4th and is such a young lady. She is no longer a fan of the color pink - everything is purple now.

Our church is wonderful. We're getting into the swing of everything being over here. I'm actually, maybe, probably, possibly going to be involved with the drama team. I'm scared, happy, excited, nervous, confused as to why I wanna do this, you know...and I'm NOT a writer. I can blog all day long, but not write like that. I'm supposed to have a little blurb thingy to her by Friday and I guess it's coming right along, but it's not pleasant. I haven't told her that for me to write, it's like pulling my fingernails off a little bit at a time. I have zero confidence and no structure. I suck at it.

That's ok.

I have the most wonderful, Godly, sweet, dedicated, sexy, loving, affectionate husband in the world! He is so good to me. I do not know where I would be without him.

Oh, and the Grocery Game! I can't say enough about the Grocery Game! My precious friend, Ginger, introduced me to it sometime back and I regret that I did not take advantage of it until now. Well, not now, about a week and a half ago, really. I just shopped it for the second time yesterday. It totally rocks!
