I don't really have much to say, but I can't stand that vomit picture on the previous post so I'm just trying to take up some space so I don't have to see that photo when I check out my blog to see if anyone commented. : )

Spring Break is here. We have nothing planned and that in itself is lovely. I went to bed at 11:30 last night and the kids were still up doing whatever they were doing. It's 9:33 in the morning and they're all still asleep so I have the beautiful sound of silence going on in my home. Even the dog is still snuggled up on top of the boys sleeping.

I love a good schedule. If I had to pick schedule or no schedule I would pick schedule, but it's so nice to get a break from it too. Randy and some of the kids went to go eat ice cream at 10:00 last night. They had so much fun. Those are the kinds of things you can do without a schedule. I do feel bad for Randy though in times like these. We keep him up way too late and he leaves for work when we're all still asleep. We may go to San Angelo one day this week. We love making day trips there. It's only a little over an hour to get there. We like to go to all the shops downtown. Also, they have the best thrift store called Christians in Action. It's the size of a Wal-Mart but filled with strange and wonderful and cheap things. I don't even like to go to San Angelo if I can't go to that store. One time I went there Randy bought me a bulk of greeting cards. For about $40 he bought almost 2,000 cards! I had so much fun sorting them into categories. I have them in my storage building and when I need a card I just go get one. I'm covered for all Birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, First Communions, Weddings, Pastor Appreciations, Thanksgiving...and Many More! : ) Just knowing that I have them makes me very happy!

I've been feeling crafty lately. It's helped me to keep my mind off the doom and gloom around here. I've been making aprons. I won't talk too much about that now because I may write a post on it soon.

I had a friend call me today to tell me that she dreamed about Miles all night. He was talking and adorable. That's the third person that has told me they've dreamed about Miles and he was walking and talking. The way things are looking I would not be surprised if that's what ends up happening. I have come to the place where I know nothing. I don't know what God has planned for Miles, but I know He's big enough to make those plans happen with or without me. I'm all for Miles walking and talking! Bring it on!

My friend Jennifer brought me over a special surprise on Saturday! She gave me the NOOK. It's Barnes and Nobles version of the Kindle. It's so cool. Joey and I have been trading it off back and forth. It makes reading convenient. Plus it made me feel loved. You can get through anything with friends, family and a church like mine!

I guess that's all for the rambling.

I love thrift shoping too. I need to find out more about this store in SA. The aprons you've made are really cute. For me sewing can be a stress reliever. It's something that makes me focus and I am only thinking about sewing and nothing else. Which at time can be nice. Have a great spring break!!
