Happy New Year's!

So I am not one for resolutions, but this year I am going to try and be a better blogger. Actually I want to start making my blog be like my daily journal. When I was much younger I kept a journal, actually I used it as a devotional too. I would write different scripture verses in it that I would read and like to remember. I use to also write 5 things daily that I was thankful for, I remember at first it was the general things like family, friends, etc. But as time passed I would put things like being sick or that I was thankful for bad times...I guess I was thankful that God had shown me these "blessings" to teach me and show me. So I remember really feeling so together in my thoughts when I wrote in the journal on a regular basis. So for the first time in over 15 years, maybe longer I am going to do it again.

Today I am thankful for:
A short day at work
A handy husband(he helped me hang a vinyl verse on the wall that I could not get straight)
Great children
A day of rest
A job-the past 2 years have really been so interesting for my hubby and myself with our job situation.
I am especially grateful that I have a senior in High School-can't wait for her to experience the next chapter in her life!
Enjoy your evening as we ring in the New Year!

My life is like a freight train!

So we are halfway through the month of December and I have only managed to get one lousy post done! It is such a shame that I don't have more to say cause my life is so busy!!! I think that is the problem, too much going on and not enough down time to write anything! We enjoyed our trip to Disney World the first week of the month and since coming back I have been battling a cold that would not leave! So after 9 days I went to the Dr. to find out it is the flu and a sinus infection. I have spent the last several days in I finally feel that my head isn't spinning and I can actually appear human again!
I did manage to make a little gift last week for my monthly card swap group. I am really proud of how it turned out, now I just want to find more time to make another one! Here is a photo.
In other news I haven't even started my Christmas shopping and we are only 1 week away from the big day! I don't know where the time went but I gotta get myself organized and feeling better so I can get some presents under the tree! My kids are going to start thinking there really is no Santa!!! OF course they know that this year we are trying to be a little frugal so it won't be as big of a Christmas as they have had in the past, that is ok though cause we are together and Dan has got a new job! That is the best news we have had all year!!! He started last week and seems to really like it, lots to do in a growing company. We are just so thankful, our prayers were answered.

Whirlwind week!

This week is proving to be super busy! I am working only 2 days this week and then we leave to go to Disney World! We are so excited the High School Chorus is singing the Candlelight Processional in Epcot and we are going down to see them perform, plus enjoy a couple of days at the parks! We so need this little min vacation. Should have tons of photos when I get home to scrapbook.

In other news my husband found a job! We are so thrilled about this opportunity. His commute will be a little longer than it is now, his job is in Kennesaw! We are just so happy that Dan has got a job. He starts mid December, so keep us in your prayers! This will be a new adventure!

Gotta get to work, I am hoping to get some more time to blog this week. I have lots of new stuff to share but no time to upload photos!
