Nice title, huh?

I have been in a blah mood lately and not willing to put forth the HUGE (ha ha) effort it takes to blog. How sad is that?

Kyle had 2 interviews this past week. He has decided he doesn't want the one, even if they offer it to him. And will probably go with the 2nd one. It is a promotional/marketing type job.

I have started training to work for the IRS and I am hating that. LOL Training just sucks. I wish they would just leave me alone and let me figure it out myself. I don't do well when I have to listen to others questons and having them stop the trainer every 2 mins. UGH. i was SO antsy the other night I thought I was going to go insane before she finally dismissed us. 1 more week and then we will be on our own, woohoo!! One of the reasons it is so frustrating is that I did this SAME job last tax I know most of it. Give me a refresher tell me whats changed and send me on my way! GEESH!

Kyles dad had surgery this past week. The place on his foot that was believed to be gangrenous is evidently not. He was moved back to UT hospital and they did a bypass on his leg with a "fake" vein to get blood flow down to the foot and hopefully speed healing. After surgery, he was having a lot of "A fib" episodes, his BP was very low, etc. So, they moved him to the ICU. he is doing better and is in a normal room now. He must be quite the fighter..he has surpised us several times now.

We are heading to VA in Novemeber with Renee. My MIL has a timeshare in williamsburg and can;t use it this year. So we are going and invited Renee and her family to join us. I am REALLY looking forward to it. I have never met Renee before and I have "known" her since before Logan was this trip is definitely a long time coming! :)

My plans this weekend consist of working for LiveOps, cleaning my house, and sitting on my rear. LOL I *think* I am going to church tomorrow night.

Speaking of church....I went to a new one last week, it was a nice service. i was VERY tired though and was fighting sleep BIG time. SO...... LOL

Sunday again

Sundays must be my blog days. I seem to post a lot on Sunday! LOL

Logan started school this week. I am thinking about starting his own blog with his school pics and what he did each day etc. something for the grandmas and aunts to check out!! :)

Been working a lot since we are so busy with RC calls. Kyle got hired as a temp employee so between the 2 of us we are working a lot.

We have been watching season 3 of 24 we have one more hour to go and we will be done. I LOVE 24. I can't wait to see season 4. It'll be awhile though..there are some movies we want to see and we need to watch season 2 of Nip/ all the fall shows will be starting again very soon. we are going to be busy tv watchers! :lol I need to start working on my knitting and crocheting again so i at least feel productive while I am watching all that tv!!

I got my school stuff all squared away so now I have until February 2 to order my exam. I need to get myself on a many hours a day for school and so many a day for work....and time for the kids...and time for all those tv shows. Oh..and time to clean the house I guess. Hmmm..I think I might need more than 24 hours in a day! LOL Really though..I have NOO idea how working moms do it.....and moms that work AND go to school?!? WOW! I just couldn't do it..but I am a pretty lazy person. LOL

Church was good last Sunday. I really enjoyed it. I'd like to go back when it is a "normal" service and not a special speaker there to see how it normally is. During the praise and worship they sang the same song for like 20 mins at least. It made me a little nuts!! lol I might go to a different church tonight. It's an Assemblies of God church I have been curious to attend. I just have to get my rear in gear and go.

Signed up for 2 secret shopper shops to do this week. We'll be eating out and "shopping" for an RV on Thursday. sounds fun to me!! LOL

Al is moving back in with mom. They have been working on some things and been "dating" and things are going well with Tony and him. I hope it works out. I guess what made her decide is that up until this point tony has been totally "anti-Al". He doesn't want him around, etc. So, mom said that she was praying about and told God that if he wanted her to work on her marriage and have Al back in, He was going to have to change tony's heart. The next day tony came home from work and said....out of the clear blue..."I guess Al can move back. When is he moving in?" LOL So...he hasn't moved in yet..they are taking it slow with him just being around more etc. Today tony is on a trip with the MRDD place and mom and Al are out and about to some loca festivals. which I think is really wonderful.

Mom and I were throwing around the idea of going to disney for our christmas present this year. last night. I'm not sure if it will happen or not but I would LOVE to go!! It all started because dylan announced that he needs to go to "Mickey Mouse world". LOL we'll see .

Ok. I am going to stop now because this is getting so long and all over the place. LOL

Taking calls for the red cross. People are so generous and have such big hearts..everyone was affected by this tragedy. I have taken pledges for $5 up to $500 and every person says how they wish they could do more. If people aren't calling to donate they are wanting info on how to donate clothes or open their home to a refugee. People are so generous. I am so blessed to be a part of this.

Yesterday was Kyles famiy reunion. We had lots of yummy food and played games. My kids were good until almost time to go home when they insisted on leaving the yard, running down the block and not coming back when I called them. They were spanked and made to sit on the couch until we left. we just can NOT have them running off and not listening. ugh. but for the most part they were good.

Mom and I are going to a new church tonight. Tommy Tenney is there speaking. We "know" his dad, T.F. Tenney. so, we want to check out what the son is all about. Especially since he and his father share different religions. I have been wanting to visit this church anyway....

"On Time God"

Now, I have this song in my head from my previous post. Just thought I would share. :)


and here's the lyrics:

He’s an on time God, yes He is
He’s an on time God, yes He is
Job said He may not come when you want Him
But He’ll be there right on time
I tell you, He’s an on time God, yes He is


You can ask the children of Israel
Trapped at the Red Sea
How that mean ole Pharaoh and his army
They had water all around them
They had Pharaoh on their tracks
But then out of no where
God stepped in and cut a highway just like that

Let me tell you, He’s an on time God, yes He is
He’s an on time God, yes He is
I know He may not come when you want Him
But He’ll be there right on time
I tell you, He’s an on time God, yes He is

Now you can ask Mary and Martha
Their brother Lazarus was sick in bed
They said Jesus please come heal him
But Jesus waited 'til he was dead
They said Lord I don’t understand it
Why you’ve waited 'til now to come
But Jesus said Lazarus come forth
And death let him go, He came walkin' out of the tomb

And don’t you know that, He’s an on time God, yes He is
He’s an on time God, yes He is
Well He may not come when you want Him
But He’ll be there right on time
He’s an on time God, yes He is

He’s an on time God, yes He is
He’s an on time God, yes He is
No He may not come when you want Him
But He’ll be there right on time
I tell you, He’s an on time God,
He’s an on time God,
He’s an on time God, Yes He is

one more "testimony"

when K lost his job in February I started working as much as I could and quit working on my Medical Transcription course. It was a 6 month program and I didn't finish it in the time alloted so I had to file for a 6 month extension. the extension was $350!! I have been so upset because my mom paid for the course and if I didn't get the extension it was like she wasted all that money. so, I have been stressing about what I could sell and what I could do to ge the money to pay for it. the other day Kyle received a check from his old employer. It will get all the bills caught up, the mortgage for October paid and pay for my extension. he is definitely an "on time God". My faith is growing as I am learning that His ways are not always our ways. Which of course, I knew that..but sometimes I just need a reminder of that I guess.

Being a Cheerful Giver

I get a monthly email from Lisa Whelchel (She used to be Blair on The Facts of Life.) I came across her website a few months ago and signed up for the newsletter. I really enjoy it. She seems to be such a great christian and reading the newsletters give me chills and make me want to be a better person. :) So, last month (or maybe the month before) she said something about the Lord wanting us to be "cheerful givers" so, I have really been working on that. When this horrible thing with hurricane Katrina happened I wanted to do something but with Kyle not working and no unemployment coming in we are more than broke! So, I was trying to figure out a way to be a "cheerful giver" and had decided to donate blood. In hindsight, I should have just decided on an amount to give and had faith that the Lord would take care of us. But I have faith issues sometimes. LOL As it turns out He had a plan for me anyway. the company that I work for has been hired to take calls for the Red Cross for the next 2 weeks...including the telethon they are having friday night. At the end of the "drive" we will be able to donate a portion (or all) of our pay to the Katrina victims. I am just SO excited about it. Not just that I am able to help in a way but that He made a way for me to be able to help when I didn't think there was a way. that He knew the desire of my heart was to be a "cheerful giver" so he made it so I can do just that. His love for me amazes me.

I am still going to donate blood. :)


things seem to happen so slow with the hospital and my FIL's care. When did they say he had gane grene? at least 3 days ago I think. Seems like they would want to get that taken care of before it got any worse. But I guess they have to weigh all their options.

The orthopedic surgeon came in and looked at his leg and said he didn;t think it looked that bad and wanted to to have the neurosurgeon look at it. So, the neurosurgeon came in and said there is nothing he can do for it that the blockage is severe and the surgery that he would need to do to TRY to get blood flowing back to his foot his major and he didn't even know if it would work. So, I am guessing that means they will be amputating. My MIL was tired when she talked to K last night so he didn't press her for a lot of information. He'll call her back today and find out what the plan is. so sad that it has come to this. :( Kyles thinking is that in the long run it might be better for him anyway to have his leg amputated. They don't believe he will ever walk again anyway and if he doesn't have a leg it is less work for his heart to have to do to try to get blood down there. I guess that kinda makes sense. It's very sad and I feel very bad for my FIL. I am worried about the surgery too.

We will head back down there for the surgery whenever they schedule it.

No Cable for us!

I'm annoyed with the cable company since they refused to hire my husband to work for them. SO, I signed up for dish network. LOL It will be installed Sept 13. We will be paying about the same amount of money with more channels, all of the movie channels, and 2 more digital cable boxes. We will be receiving 3 months free because we are switching to dish from cable. we will also recieve $100 worth of movie money from Fandango. Oh, and I signed up through our phone company so we will got $4 off a month. Can't beat deals like that. :) I'm excited. I hope it works out and we are happy with it.
