You Know It's Time to Shower When...

Okay, I know it has been a really long time since I've blogged. Things have been crazy and I'll sit down to blog and then I'll get distracted with other things. But this morning, I had something happen that is definitely worth blogging about, so I sat right down to fill you guys in. The past few days I've had sick kids, been cleaning & decorating for Christmas because I have this huge Holiday Open House here this weekend. I have a "no shower" policy when I'm cleaning because after I get done cleaning I feel gross and dusty so I have to shower again. Does anyone else have this policy? Typically I will shower in the same day I clean, but the girls were sick and needy yesterday and the day before, so I haven't really had a spare moment to shower and then last night when Mel got home, I was so tired that I just went straight to bed. Well, I woke up this morning thinking I still have a lot of cleaning to do and I would wait to shower until right b

A Scary Weekend

Well, it's been awhile since I've blogged. I'm sure you all know by now that it was a rough week/weekend for us last week! My husband went into the hospital with chest pain/discomfort and ended up staying the night. Mel knows me too well - he knows that I will freak out if I think something is wrong with him - and, he is right. Thursday morning he was getting ready for work and he told me he wasn't feeling well. About 10 minutes later I asked him what his symptoms were and he rubbed his stomach and then his chest and said that he just felt weird. I immediately asked him if he was having chest pains and he nonchalantly blew it off to be something minor. Well, about a hour later he calls me to ask for a doctor's number and of course I freak out b/c he never asks for a doctor's number. He tells me it is no big deal and that he will make an appointment for the afternoon. Well, of course I insist that he call right away. The next phone call I get from him is 5

In a battle?

I just have a minute because I've got to get in the shower (didn't take one yesterday) so that I can take Emma to the doctor - she may have an ear infection. :( Anyways, I have something on my heart today and just wanted to share it with you. I've really been in a battle the past 2 weeks - have felt pressed on all sides. Really, since we made the decision to come plant this church 2 years ago, it has been a battle, but it is heavier at times. And, this last week was one of the heavier weeks. I feel impressed to share this today because I know that others are facing battles too. I know that a lot of people in our church are really having to trust God through the storms happening in their lives. One of my friends from my mom's group that I started called me yesterday to ask me to pray because her husband was laid off unexpectedly after climbing the ladder in the company he's been with for 15 years. No severance pay & benefits end today. They are scrambling

My First Blog

Well, I'm officially entering the world of blogging! Summer has been trying to convince me to blog for a long time now, but it wasn't until my friend, Casey, who has avoided MySpace & Facebook, sent me her blog that I decided to jump on board! I'm not sure exactly why I have put it off for so long because I really enjoy reading updates on all of my friends. I guess it is just that I haven't been sure what to say and I'm still not sure what to say, but here goes! I've titled my blog "Ramblings of a Woman" because I ramble A LOT. :) And, I feel now, that I am officially in my THIRTIES that I am a WOMAN. So, hence the title "Ramblings of a Woman" and the fact that I couldn't think of anything else. :-) You know, I've always had a hard time calling myself a woman, but now that I'm 30 I feel as if I've crossed over into "womanhood". I've also been married for 9 years tomorrow! Which is really bizarre. It
