I'm a silly person and love a good chuckle! I believe I am a bit on the ditsy side but who's keeping score?! ha On a more serious note: I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul! And my husband and children (family) are the most important things in my life! Hope I can be a blessing to those of you willing to torture yourselves and read this blog! LOL

Silly blogspot has issues with comments. If you can't comment on my blog don't worry "YOU're not alone"!!! haha It's nothing personal or not that I know of. Because I can't comment either! BUT... If you choose the option: "Name/URL" and enter your name and if you have a website or blog you "can" but don't have to enter it. THEN you CAN comment. This is a just so you know. I don't wanting anyone going away without sharing their thoughts! Or thinking that we have something against them! We LOVE you! :)

A new day!

Well I am apalled! Can you believe my Dad thinks I deserve all the nagging and punishment I get from my children! Imagine! I was an angel child. Never complained, always doing as I was told. Goodness, I told him the Bible says to love thy neighbor and how he shouldn't wish evil upon anyone. hahaha

We had a good laugh about it. I did say that I have it three fold in return so I guess it's a good enough pay back as far as he goes. hehe

I can see myself in everyone of my children and then I also notice Randy's personality in them as well. It's funny and scary to think about.

I mean can u imagine my children behaving like me. I have a lot to worry about. I have spent most of my life in the "live and learn mode". And it's been hard. The sad thing is I am aware of it and still struggle! Oh well.

Thank the Lord He is merciful and forgiving! I hope to be more like Him if I can!

It's been a while

Well I've been super busy! We have been through some changes, some good and some not so good. But God is still on His throne and I am trying to trust Him and keep a smile on my face.

So here goes the last few months: We made a decision to move back to Niceville. The drive was killing us. So we found a house to rent that would allow us to keep our dogs and we are thankful for that. They are like our family/protectors and we can't imagine life without them. :) That's for you that lack in animal love. hahaha Kidding!

So we are now in Niceville. I am so happy to be so close to so many things. ha It's been a long three yrs living in the woods. It definitely had its good but I can't say I like it more than the city. I can visit and shop within minutes! I mean I don't know how I survived all this time. LOL It had a place in my life but I am thankful God allowed us to come back closer to Church and Randy's work.

I know you're saying, now where is all the humor in this? I don't have a clue other than the cleaning, loading and unloading, there really isn't much to share about the entire experience. hehe

But I promise to be sure to humiliate myself more often and share it here so we can all have a laugh or two. :)

I can share that we never had glass doors before now and our little Shitzu dog hasn't seen them before either. I bet you already guessed it... haha He ran right into them and it was pretty funny. I wonder if he'll be silly enough to do that again? And one day while I was away Randy was home and our lovely large dog named Lexi, decided to make an escape. She ran all over the place while, yeah, you guessed it, Randy was trailing right behind her. I can see him now, red in the face, angry and yelling for her to return "right now!". hahaha I'm so glad I wasn't here! hehe Poor guy! I never knew why dogs run off but she is one of the ones that just takes off at the slightest chance of freedom. Silly!

Hope you are having a great week and hope to have something more interesting to share very soon!

What a day it will be! Love this song!

Things have been incredibly stressed lately! I wouldn't even dare to explain but trust me I don't think there has been a worse time. :( Boohoo!

So I have had a hard time finding something to share. I did go on the most spontaneous trip that I have ever taken! I haven't flown in an airplane since I was 2 yrs old. And that was only to get me back to the USA after being born in Germany to Air Force parents. haha

So I get the call about 4pm Friday about "how would you like to take a trip to Atlanta, GA.?". hahaha I was like "are you serious?". I mean I had thought at one point in my life I'd just stay on the ground! LOL Well I thought "what an experience that would be". I was to sit at home, which I don't mind as I don't get much just "Free time" with my family. It seems all work most of the time but this was a once in a lifetime event. I don't have the money to fly anywhere and no reason to either. ROFL

So that's just what we did, we flew from P'cola airport into Atlanta at 5:30am and accomplished our task at hand and then returned from Atlanta to P'cola at 7:30pm. All and all with no sleep! It was a histerical day! From yawning to laughing to almost crying. haha But I am so glad I got to go! Almost nothing as fun as getting together with a Best Friend and running off on an Airplane for a day trip! We took some hilarious photos! I will share below! Try not to laugh at how silly we were, hahaha Yeah right, laugh away!

Some of the images you'll just have to use your imagination! ROFL Others are just where we went and silliness!

Hope to have more of lifes craziness to share sooner than later! See ya next time!

Ok so maybe this isn't todays happenings! hehe

I am so tired of not being able to control diet and lose weight. I actually feel like I am gaining weight! YIKES! I did some reading about my symptoms and am doing some self testing recommended. I just might have a Hypothyroid. So enough with the serious and on with the humor I intend to add to this dilemna! :)

I am considering spending thousands of dollars on BRACES!! LOL Doesn't this sound like the answer to my weight issue?? I mean I have watched these young people whither away from not being able to eat. So the way I see it, I should be a stick by this time next year if I can find a way to PAY for them! ROFL

I can see me now and then:



I mean it would be so worth it, RIGHT???

Anyway, hopefully I'll be able to share something way more meaningful before too long! :)

I meant to keep up with this blog! I have the most ridiculous things happen from day to day as many of you may experience as well. Things have been a bit chaotic to say the least and I haven't been able to experience much fun to share! Boohoo! hehe

I do have to let you in on a little secret. My middle child is unable to keep secrets! ROFL He actually likes to repeat things you say but change them to what he interpreted you said. Or just say you said something that you might not have said. His latest attempt to mimic me was embarassing to say the least. After I corrected him that I had NOT said such a thing his exact words were: "well somebody said it"! LOL I can't get enough of that child. He is going to be a tell it like he thinks it is person! Gotta love them children. ha

And this is our little secret! Remember that from my initial comment! hehe
He wouldn't like it very much if he knew MOM were telling his secrets! So it's just between us, ok?! :)

Anyhow, that's all I got for tonight. But I plan to start making notes of my day so I can share. I believe I am at the beginning stages of Dementia. I can't remember much of anything anymore! It's been happening for a while but gotten really bad lately! Pray for me! LOL

Oh and doesn't he look like a sweet, innocent thing? :) He is, he is..

Where to start?? LOL

I read a few blogs when time allows. I have a favorite! She is witty and smart. I laugh out loud as I sit and read. She lives a life "I" as a child would dream about. Living on a Ranch with horses and cattle. I am sure of it that it is a huge responsibility but to a child it's simply perfect! So I am dreaming as I sit here about how my simple acre is a huge farm! :) Like I really need something else to do. ha

I wanted to start this blog so I could share what's on my mind and days in the life of me. Some may think it's boring but I on the otherhand enjoy it. LOL Simple trips to Walmart can become hilarious disasters. I hope I can share pics to help tell my stories! I am a photo fanatic and love to see images as I read a story. So we shall see if I can implement them! :)

Hope you have as much fun reading about our day mishaps as I enjoy writing about them!

Hope you have the best day ever and will come back to see what could possibly be happening another day!
