Never have enough time to do everything that i want to do, I know most people feel this way even when they don't work or retire. I have several books that I want to read, tons of photos to scrapbook, and a messy house to organize. Several boxes of stuff to list on ebay. ETC..........
But I have to take a deep breath and realize that this is life and you can't always plan everything, you just have to roll with the punches and take what comes your way, realize that you can't control everything and you do your best.
I am thankful for two wonderful kids that are Christians, go to Church 3 to 4 times a week. It is a blessing to watch them grow and mature into adults and see their relationship with God grow. They went to the Church that I grew up in last Sunday and got up and sang in front of everybody. They did a wonderful job, I am very proud.

I have been working on my Scrapbooks at least 3 to 4 nights a week so I am getting some things done. It is starting to feel like fall now, got down into the 40's last night. I love fall and all the pretty colors.

Mid July 2009

Well I have had my surgery and am laying aroung alot. Dr. Laing performed the surgery on July 7th at Sycamore schoals. I came home two days after. It feels similar to my C-sections but I don't have a baby. I did loose about 7 lbs, hopefully there will be even more weight lost once im back to my normal life and can be more active. I feel like im still swolen and bloated. Me and Amber went driving today, we went to Kohls in kingsport and 5-guys burgers and fries in kingsport. She did really well just needs to learn her way around. We stopped at movie starz and bought some movies to watch. Zack Harrison came over to play video games with Hunter we havent seen him in about 8 yrs., he went to youth group with hunter and amber. Hunter went bowling with Clinton and his other friends.

Long time no blog updates!

Well we are now into the new year 2009! I have been off 2 weeks (except for one day I worked) while the kids were out of school. Got alot of rest did the usual holiday things, Scrapbooked and read some. We had a good Christmas, both kids got new cell phones and I accidently did too!
Kids went back to school on Monday, new semester, Hunter's is taking two AP courses which look like they will be hard. Amber has all hard classes this semester too.

Of course with a new year I have the same resolution to lose weight and get in shape. But its really more that I want a lifestyle change as far as my eating and exercise habits go. I know that I can lose but keeping it off is the trick. The biggest part of my problem is my schedule, especially during basketball season. We have two nights a week that we have 2 games and Amber has tumbling two nights and Church is two nights. But I know it can be done with the right planning and frame of mind
