Taking a Breath

Well let me quickly update everyone...

Did NOT get school papers turned in yet, planning on this week, almost finished. VBS is going well, program tomorrow morning Lord willing. Honestly stressful though. I was more stressed about the adults than the kids. I like to please everyone so I was concerned about the crafts wanting everyone in general to be pleased with them. It's okay if they didn't, I would just like to know (you know...constructive criticism). Then, there's always everyone's opinions and suggestions. Some people I honestly don't mind. But there's also those that are a little harder to handle. It's overwhelming when you have it planned out and then you get a suggestion here, suggestion there. (Especially when you're a control freak like me!). And then there's the...I don't know if this is okay or not issues. I just like to this good? or not good?! That way if it's NOT I can do some adjusting and if it IS I can stick with it. Oh, for a balance when it comes to the opinions of others! Of course my MAIN concern is to be clear before God above all!

ANYWAY though...I have cleaning up to's a mess here!

Checking Off the List...

These three weeks are the "getting things done" weeks.

Cleaning (Working on it!)

School....Register and all the rest of the paperwork. Getting transfers straight. Nearing the first finish line...(In progress)

VBS...much accomplished but please if someone knows where I can find foam stamps, tell me. Cannot find them. (Getting done)

Yay! Feels great to get things ready and in order. Although the feelings not great enough to motivate me to do any of it, otherwise the school stuff would have already been completed. Oh well. Summer is halfway over. And I'm still loving it. LOL

Off to accomplish more!

Cherishing Forever Friends

There are some people in your life that come and go, then there are those that are very dear and close to your heart that you pray will always be there. Even though you may be separated by many miles you always pick right back up where you left off when you see them again. They are always there for you and you know you can count on them, even if you haven't chatted in a while. I am so thankful for these kinds of friends. They are such a refreshment to my soul. Spending time with them is like getting a breath of fresh air after a very hectic day.

The trip to Ohio went well. It was nice to meet more of my friend's family and spend time with the one's I had already met. I personally thoroughly enjoy knowing my friend's family. Seriously. Then, Wednesday I was able to spend time with my Breanna and her family (my adopted family LOL). It was great to see them again. Breanna and I were talking about how weird it was being "grown up", talking about our younger siblings and all and how weird it was with how old they were getting. I know, I know, some people might read this thinking, "Ha! Wait til you get my age!" LOL Morgan and I stayed with Kaitlyn and her family from Thursday night on, that was wonderful! I love visiting them, I always feel so comfortable at their house. No worries. Kaitlyn's one of those forever friends I was speaking of. She is awesome! I've told her time and time again, "I don't know why you're my friend." When we were younger we use to send letters back and forth, which I recommend to any young teenage girl! I always enjoy getting things in the mail. Even if it is a bill! LOL (Of course the bill part rarely happens. ) Now we send cards here and there, which is still nice. And now time has passed and she's getting married! And I get to wear a pretty dress too :) How exciting! By the way, Breanna is a forever friend too. We've got plenty of embarrassing and funny memories! So glad to have them in my life, and the other's too, I can't just sit here and name them! :)

I know it's blurry...but I like it anyway!

Detached and Disconnected!

That's how you feel when your phone is dead, your car charger is no longer in working order (as of tonight...figures), and your wall charger is at your friends house who is out of town. Of course I usually have easy access to this key and would solve the problem easily, but someone else has it. And on top of that the two friends who were going to stay with you now won't be because they can't get a hold of you. (Not like I'd be anywhere else but here or there at their house). LOL And when you stopped by your parents to borrow their phone charger they were already in bed so you didn't want to bother them. Oh and you deleted your facebook so it's not like you could get a hold of them or someone else to text them for you that way. DETACHED!! MAJOR TORTURE!! I actually wouldn't mind it if I wasn't worried one of them would show up or that my parents would go into a tizzy (hehe what a word!!) At least I have my laptop. If not....CATASTROPHE! Death by insanity. (Ok, not that bad.) But this is the twenty-first century. It's like not having a horse back in the old days. Or a clock. LOL Anyway.

One day til' O-HI-O! :) Woo whoo. Happy Fourth of July btw. Time flys, it's already July! Soon enough everyone will be singing "Happy Birthday" tehehe.

So long folks!
