Last Place

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

James and I watched a skiing race the last day of the Olympics. When the race ended an exciting thing happened. The spectators stayed to cheer for those who came in last. The last athletes came across the finish line 15-20 minutes after the gold medal athlete. The fans cheered and waved their flags for […]

Catch Up Chat

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Lee is still looking and applying for jobs. The business idea he had was nixed by his parole officer so he’s feeling discouraged. It really was a good idea, but for now, we have to do what she wants. He’s applying at multiple places and hasn’t been called. Feels like last summer! I’m feeling so […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Thanks for all the links and encouragement about my weight loss. I’m wading through the links as I have time. For the record when I wrote the post yesterday, I wasn’t discouraged about my weight loss. I was just thinking through things. This week I discovered some red light foods for me. They are low […]

Weight Loss

Eating right–check Weighing regularly–check Lots of water–check Regular exercise–check Portion control–check Taking my vitamins–check Journaling my eating–check Exercising my willpower–check I think […]

Confessions

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

I haven’t done one of these true confessions post in a long while! I thought of a few more confessions I can add. 1. I hate raw poultry. I can’t touch it! We haven’t had a roast chicken in years because getting the guts out of it and cleaning it and putting it in the […]

Cleaning

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

I needed to find the multiplication games and tools I’ve purchased for James. He needs to learn the tables a little better. I dug through the math bin and set aside the addition and subtraction things. He’s got those facts down pretty well. I decided to put them in storage. The toy clock to practice […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

I’m feeling good and I can tell my clothes fit better. I’m doing pretty good on the eating plan. My biggest downfall seems to be when I don’t plan ahead and have a meal ready. Winging it doesn’t work for me. We had a dinner at church on Saturday night, and I took a salad […]

Tropical Traditions Lip Moisturizer Review and Giveaway

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Tropical Traditions asked to review their lip balm since it’s still dry skin season around here James and I were excited to give it a try. Tropical Traditions sent us unscented, cinnamon peppermint, and tea tree oil. James tried the unscented and I tried the other two. We both liked it. I think it leaves […]

Works of God~Updated re: the interview

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

Last week, I shared that I had to work on trusting and I didn’t know what we were going to do. Throughout the week, God again reminded me that He will care for us. It may not be in my time or my way, but He will. I received a check in the mail from […]

From Outside the Frame

OOO! A great project for all my windows. An American flag window. Isn’t this homemade notebook so cute! I love how it’s made from stuff around the house. I like this post by Stephanie–5 Tips for Taking Back a Day Gone Bad. I saved this one to show you just because it’s so weird! Yarn […]
