Quick Random Update

Today was a good day. I don't want to go into detail, but I got to see the Lord be faithful to me again! I'm so thankful!

Also, I'm excited about Thursday. I was asked to be a substitute for the 1st grade. I will teach the kids all day by myself. Jocie is in that class. I'm thrilled to get to do that on Thursday!!! I love working at the school.

Spencer has Safety City tomorrow! So fun.

I'm really excited about the BFW. The whole thing feels so healthy.

Randy has been doing a ton of remodeling. He has flipped houses for the last 6 years and hasn't done a whole lot of remodeling during that time. Right now with the economy people are a little scared to buy a new home so they're fixing up their current home instead. Randy has been staying very busy with this. It's kind of exciting to see how his name is getting spread.

I had a doctors appointment today and I weighed exactly the same as I did 2 years ago. Of course I would have been happier if that number was lower but I was pleased that it wasn't higher.

Today when I picked up Jocie she mentioned something about a birthday party today for a boy in her class. I told her that I didn't think we were going to that and she started sobbing. (This is not her usual behavior at all!) I thought she was just disappointed about not going to the party, but between sobs she said, "It's...Just...That...I don't think...That Anyone Else...In First Grade is going to get to go...And I just don't want Tanner to be disappointed!!!! OH my goodness! Her heart was so sweet and pure that I thought I might just cry myself. I know that I've desired to go to parties before when I thought no one else was going to be able to go. The party is at Mr. Gatti's. I called Randy and told him the situation and he said we should go. I've got a bunch of free kids buffets so we can get out of there pretty cheap. I love that she was concerned for Tanner. She's so sweet!

I've started myself a thankful list. I'm desiring to mediate on the wonderful things God has done for me and not dwell on the one thing I'm waiting him to do.

This weekend I'm going to have the "Triplets" all weekend. My brother and his wife is having their anniversary out of town so I will have 2 three year olds and 1 two year old plus all my kids this weekend. WOW. They've never spent the night with us so I'm not sure what to expect.

I think Randy and I have all of the first 4 seasons of THE OFFICE memorized. We watch it in the evening after the kids go to bed a few nights a week. We have a little bit of wine and a little bit of The Office. It cracks me up!

My Dr. put me on birth control pills for at least one month (possibly 3 months) to help with some stuff. If you remember correctly...I don't have use birth control!!!!! He's got me on a double dose this month to get things in order. I hallucinate with Tylenol PM so I'm praying this medication doesn't mess with me. I'm not used to taking medication, but the Lord will be faithful to me I'm sure.

My Mom made me the best chicken salad this week. Man it was good.

Hairspray, the musical was so good. I loved going with my awesome girlfriends to see that!

Randy gets sweeter all the time. I'm amazed at him. I love that every year we are more in love than the year before. If I were stranded on a desert island and I could only take 3 people with me...I would pick him 3 times.

I rented a Spelling Bee DVD from the library. It had the final round of the national spelling bee on there for like 10 years in a row. It was so awesome to watch. I don't have any idea how they could spell so well.

Randy and the lady that does my hair trades labor! It's one of the best things ever! I get to have my hair highlighted every six weeks and never have to worry about if I have the money or not. I just keep track of how much money she owes me or how much we owe her. She does our whole families hair every six weeks and we don't have to spend cash on it!!!!

I love our life group. It has been one of my favorite things for about a year now. We've done life group forever, but I just enjoy it more now than I used to. I enjoy practicing hospitality.

Well, I guess that's all for now. Here's a sweet little picture of the girls.



you always make me smile with your random blogs. I loved the part where you said you would pick Randy 3 times if you had to choose. That is the sweetest thing i think i have heard. Your an awesome wife.

I think it's so cool you're excited about helping at the school! I've always wanted to be able to be more active with the kids at school. Not so much like teach them all day, I don't have that much patience, but you know like help more with the plays and parties and stuff. I really want to be Anoe's room Mom! I wanted to be the room Mom for Alexis too, but 5th grade and up don't have room Moms anymore.

Jennifer and I talk about you and Randy all the time. I always tell her I want the kind of marriage that you two have! I love you both so much!!

My thankful list is coming along nicely! I think I may just blog it when I hit 100. Some of them are silly but they're all stuff I'm thankful for.

I hate that you're having girl problems! I went to my doctor yesterday too. He gave me a shot of Depro something. We tried the birth control thing before I had an ablation last June. He recommended that I have a hysterectomy. He said the ablation did not work like it was supposed to.

Now that your awesome husband got me a metal trash can I can't wait to bring food on it to Life Group! It's going to be so awesome!!!

The picture of the girls is cute! Jocie looks so grown up!

Every once in a while I'll look at Kalista and she'll be looking a certain way, and I catch a glimpse of what she'll look like as a woman. I think that picture captured one of those moments for Jocie.

I love to hear what is going on in your life. I really love you and your family. I don't see you as often as I would like, but at least I get to hear what is going on.

It was so great to see what was going on in your life. I received your letter yesterday and it really made my day. I was having the longest day ever (so it seemed) and it was a great love moment. I have a letter coming to be looking for it!! :) **I had it planned before you sent it's not just coming because you sent on...**

I totally know what you are going through when you said focus on the good that God has done than that one thing. I'm so tired of praying about this house thing that sometimes I have to revisit the testimonies in my life to get grateful and faith-filled again.

I love you...I was worshipping today with the girls and you came into my mind...I have always loved watching you worship...there's so much love, so much passion, and so much need there. It is one of my favorite "past-times". Like I do it so much or something.... :) I promise I'm not stocking you or anything.

Okay, got to go change a dirty diaper...smells really stinky here.

LOVE LOVE LOVE to you today!!
