I don't know about y'all but I am blessed with the ability to forgive easily and to extend grace to all except me. You can say or do something that hurts me and then as soon as you say "Man, I am sorry" (or anything that might accidentally sound like an apology) forgiveness flows and grace washes over the hurt. The only exception is when I need to forgive or extend grace to myself. It's like I worry I will eventually run out so I don't want to use is when it's not needed.......blah, blah, blah...... So anyway, life has been WACKO- NUTS-O>>>>> I think I just typed Spanish! Cool! For all who don't really know me, I would much rather build forts in the woods that do laundry. On the surface this sounds great, but let me tell you there is nothing fun about walking around looking for just one pair of clean something so that each person can get dressed so you can go a build a fort. Yesterday, I reached that place where I decided it would be easier to just move than actually clean this mess up. There was no one room that I could go to and say "Well at least this room looks okay." I spent all of my morning at the doctor's office with four sick kids, and the pharmacy waiting on prescriptions, and at my mom's using here high speed Internet taking a test (which I passed!) for work cuz I had to have it completed by last night to complete my training (which I completed). Anyway, I got home in time to rest for about 45 minutes before it was time to start getting ready for work. I went to work and came home to the same mess, cuz my husband was trying to fix a mower so he could create a path in our jungle we call a yard, and going to Wal-Mart to get things that had to be gotten. Anyway that's it I'd had enough! So what did I do.............I made a list, and all consuming, list that lumed over my head while I slept.....mocking me, nah, nah, na-nah-na you're house is a mess.......Okay enough drama! But do you want to know how I got to start my day? Do ya? Huh Huh do ya? Sure you do.........I woke up to my radio alarm............MY CHAINS ARE GONE I'VE BEEN SET FREE. MY GOD, AND SAVIOR HAS RANSOM ME. AND LIKE A FLOOD HIS MERCY RAIN UNENDING LOVE AMAZING GRACE! How awesome is God! Just what I needed to jump start my day. I am typing to you in a living room that will soon be clean and with bedroom that is clean and a bathroom that is clean and with two kids rooms that are "kid" clean. If you come over now I will not extend and invitation to come inside just yet but soon and very soon! I hope you all have a great day!

I would love to say that I have so many exciting and fun things going on that I just haven't had time to blog. But that would be a complete and total LIE. First, we have been very busy, not fun busy---just busy! Second, I FORGOT my password. After trying and failing many times I just picked a new password. Then I wrote it down and stuck it to my printer, cuz apparently my computer is just kidding when it says it will remember it so I don't have to. I don't really have anything intresting to type about but I was so excited about being able to blog that I just had to type a quick note. I hope you all have a great day, and I will try to blog more faithfully for all my "devoted" fans!
