Another post

I really am clueless when it comes to naming these posts!

Life has been really going well lately. Financially speaking, very well. God has overly blessed us with more than enough! I feel so happy! It seems like for the first time in 7 years, we can afford to bless our children with a Christmas that is totally from our own means. I am very excited!

Just an update on my quitting smoking...
I gave up for a while. I just stopped trying. I think I was just thinking that I would never quit anyways and I am really scared. But, I am not giving up anymore. I am logging my cigarettes and so far, I am only smoking 19 a day. Much less than I thought! So that is very good. I am planning on smoking one less each day. Even if I stay at smoking a certain amount each day, lets say like 5 a day, for a time period I would be very proud of myself. To me, quitting is a process in my mind. I need to get over the feeling of needing one. I find myself running to them to often, I need to run to the Lord first!

I do have a request for prayer for any of you other bloggers out there. I have been having a hard time with my eyes. They are not opening right. Very sensitive to light and worse in the morning when I first wake up. They are much better in the evening and when I am indoors. This does make a problem when I am trying to get 2 kids ready in the morning for school and I cannot even open my eyes enough to see. It is like the feeling you get when you are in the dark for a long time then all of a sudden the bright lights are turned on.

Thank you :)

Friday Oct. 5th

I am just so happy that this week is over!

I spent the first 3 days in the doctors office with Jonny and Matthew. After our camping trip last weekend, both of them got sick. Jonny had bronchitis and Matthew had a cold. Today, they are much better.
I spent my morning out with my sister. I took her out to breakfast and then we went shopping at IKEA. She got a new bedroom set! I am excited because that means I get her old one! lol
This weekend is not all glamour here. Kevin is working on the brakes tomorrow and finishing up my sisters bathroom. Then he is helping a friend weatherproof her home.
I will have him to myself tomorrow night! Movie night!

Tonight we are going to Apple bees! Kevin wins gift certificates all the time so he wants to treat us out! lol
Sunday is church. We have been kinda slacking on our attendance at church. Not totally our fault. We did take a break last weekend due to our camping trip, but we have been either sick or Kevin has been working. One thing that I have found out is that it is really hard for me to take all 3 boys to church without Kevin. It is funny how God has that special person picked out for you. Kevin is my brain. He just knows exactly what to do when it comes to handling the kids. All I have to do is give him a look, and he jumps! ;)

Ok, so I am getting a little frustrated right now. Matthew is not going for his nap today. It is already 3:30 and he is just talking and playing in his crib. We are suppost to go out to dinner tonight and this boy won't nap! I am really hoping that he does or we may need to cancel or order in. I don't think the people around us would like a screaming baby while they enjoy there food!
