Emotional roller coaster

Class was amazing tonight. I didn't know that it was possible to experience every emotion on the planet within 4 to 5 hours. insane and exhausting.

I was thinking on my drive home how that we are so judgemental. We judge people so much. We automatically think we know somebody just because they do this or that or wear this or act this way. It has dawned on me that I am guilty at judging the book by its cover thing.

been busy

This weekend was very busy. We (eric and I ) had a great time. I was off fri - sun. It was really nice to be off, to be home, It is pretty amazing how much work does effect my attitude. I was glad to be able to spend the weekend celebrating eric's birthday which happens to be today. Now I dont' feel bad about going to class tonight. Sunday was the best actually. We went out cache and stumbled upon this gorgeous spot in sipsy. I will post some pictures later. We are in the middle of the great computer change up. hee hee. pictures are unavailable at the moment. It was a good time. I am in the process of trying to prepare for class tonight It is a little frustrating in that I am struggling to find the right activity for class. All is well though.

Science fair is this week and we are trying to finish up heidi's volcano. Now I remeber why I didn't do the science fair much in school. I am sure we will survive.

Thus a day in the life of a wife and mother.

great short

This is a great short film that this guys shot. Cool stuff.


Hard working people get something nice!!!

It is nice to see hard working people win the lottery.


Ahhh Refreshing!!!!!!!!!!

That is what my acting class is. It is so cool to be around people who are into the same thing you are. We had a great class last night and learned a lot. Two of my friends just got back from vegas and they were telling me about this ride there. Check this out. The kids pipe in and say oh are we going there on vacation. oh I don't think so.

Back to class

Tonight I am headed to class for the first time in about 1 month. I have really missed it a lot. I haven't been every week since November.

The girls got money for valentine's day to see Narnia at the movies. It was a pretty good movie. I must say. The little girl who plays lucy was really a good little actress. I didn't care for the white witch. I think that part could have been played a little better. Darker really. I guess for the kiddies sake, they refrained. The principal of the story is pretty moving all in all.

After the movie hauled it over to drum lessons after that.

well off to class.

It is time for cool change.

Yes sirs and madams. D day (D=Diet) tightness again. B day ( B= Budget) tightness again. I could go on, but I will spare you. I had to fight the urge at walmart all the good things to eat and remind myself that all that goodness only last a lifetime and whether this is cruel or not it is. I saw a man who was somewhat overweight eating a chicken tender from the deli and It snapped me to reality really quick . Do I want to ride around at walmart in a wheelchair at age 65 eating chicken or do I want to walk around anywhere doing whatever at 65. I opted on the later. So I will get through the rough week for starting on my diet strictly. I have gotten out of my routine due to vacations, christmas etc and never have gotten back into the swing of it all. I am going to try to be good so when I go to ny I can be a little bad.

I am looking for a new job that would allow me to work from home or something that will allow me to work only on the weedkay m-f. except tuesday I have class and would not want to give that up.

other than all that depressing news all is well.

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E Posted by Picasa

Being Truthful

That is what it is all about. Truth. In every aspect of our lives. Truth is religous, moral, and mostly hidden.

It is really hard to find someone in our day and time to be truthful. I believe the reason we can't be truthful is because most people can't handle the truth. If you speak the truth, most people don't want to except you because you are to harsh or just down right open. I wonder if Jesus was in the moment, truthful kind of guy. I see from scripture he probably was. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil. Jesus lived truthful and he lived in the moment. I wished that I could be Jesus in the moment, truthful in the moment everyday of my life, I go against scripture and try to plan my whole life out and don't fit God into the equation most of the time. What if God tries to pull a Job on me tomorrow and I loose Everything what would I have to say about the moment prior to losing everything and the moment after. Would I be truthful in the moment or be worrying about what was going to happen next.

God please help me be truthful and in the moment with every step in this life I take.

Back into the saddle until I get thrown out again!

Our disney trip went great. The 10 Hour trip down was uneventful. We stopped about 7 hours into the trip and spent the night in Voldasta. Then got up the next morning. We found a geo cache and then we missed another one. We got to the disney property about 1:30. We checked in and even though we were early, our room was ready. We got every thing situated and then took a walk on the property. It was very nice then we got ready for dinner and went out with the whole family. My mom and dad, my sister and brother-in-law and her kids and all of my family. We went to Downtown disney's planet hollywood. Great food. Ok service. After dinner, we took a much needed walk and then headed to bed.

The next day was magic kingdom day. We had extra magic hours that day which meant we got to go in the park because we stayed on the disney property. All I can say is awesome. That is the best. We rode all the rides we really wanted to ride except space mountain and pirates of the caribean by 10:00. That is when toon town opened. we headed there and met the characters. Then we walked around the other side of the park and rod pirates of the caribean. Then it was back for Holly to ride with my sister and brother in law space mountain. Then we headed off to take a nap in the room. We got up around 5 and headed to mgm. ( I didn't care for this park so much. ) It was small. The things we did and saw were good, but way not worth the time or money. The muppet show and the star wars ride where fun.

We headed to animal kingdom the next day. It was ok. Again not as good as expected. When you think safari disney style you think wow, well it was not wow. it was more like oh that is cool. The show there were good though. The lion king show is a must see. Wow. It was a minature cirque de le sole. We went back to the room and Eric and I hit epcot alone and had a nice dinner and saw the fireworks Which were amazing.

The next day was our last day at disney. The girls wanted to go back and ride dumbo, tea cups and space mountain. WE decided to hit tomorrowland in disney as we didn't really do everything there. We had a great time. It was nice to go to the park on the last day with no agenda really. We had already ridden most everything and all of this was icing on the cake. Then it was to downtown disney for lunch at earl of sandwichs. Excellent place to eat in my opinion. Not to expensive either. Then it was to the room for a nap. Then we took the girls to epcot to see the fireworks. They were amazing. We ate at a chinese restraunt. Very nice.

The next morning we were off back home. We really didnt' want to come home, but we had to. WE made it home in about 11 hours. It was a nice trip. over all

Wendy, You just cleaned the toliet. What are you going to do next?

I am going to Disney world. lol. We leave tomorrow. It will be fun. The kids are so excited.

In other news, I will be leaving on March 23 to go NYC. Yes, that is right New York. My step mother in law will be teaching a conference there and has invited me to go with her. It is the perfect trip. It will be a riot that is for sure. My sister in law, Tara, will be meeting me there as well. It is a girls weekend that is for sure. The best part about the trip is the fact that my room and flight are taken care of and at no expense to me. Amazing.

On a spiritual note, I had a great weekend. I just love those times when things are confirmed to you through the Holy Spirit. It is pretty amazing to know that you are where God would have you and that he bears witness to you in several ways. It is awesome to know that when I wake up in the morning. I can look in the mirror and see myself as who I am and I don't have to go out in the world to impress anyone and I don't have to dress up inward self and be something I am not. God loves me just the way I am. Here is the devotion that I read this weekend. It is very much worth reading. My utmost for his highest web site.

If I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all —Philippians 2:17
Are you willing to sacrifice yourself for the work of another believer— to pour out your life sacrificially for the ministry and faith of others? Or do you say, "I am not willing to be poured out right now, and I don’t want God to tell me how to serve Him. I want to choose the place of my own sacrifice. And I want to have certain people watching me and saying, ’Well done.’ "
It is one thing to follow God’s way of service if you are regarded as a hero, but quite another thing if the road marked out for you by God requires becoming a "doormat" under other people’s feet. God’s purpose may be to teach you to say, "I know how to be abased . . ." ( Philippians 4:12 ). Are you ready to be sacrificed like that? Are you ready to be less than a mere drop in the bucket-to be so totally insignificant that no one remembers you even if they think of those you served? Are you willing to give and be poured out until you are used up and exhausted— not seeking to be ministered to, but to minister? Some saints cannot do menial work while maintaining a saintly attitude, because they feel such service is beneath their dignity.
