I'm Still Here

Yes it has been a while since I posted...but I'm still here...just really tired!!

My eyes aren't seeing too well right now...usually it is just my age but tonight it is because I got mine and Ron's income tax done...WOOHOO. Now I just have to find Ron's access number (that I know came in the mail) and I can efile them.

This week has been a tough one. I haven't slept well all week...but I've watched season three of The Office (including commentaries, bloopers and deleted scenes) that is one of my favourite shows...probably not the right thing to watch when I'm trying to sleep.

So another month has gone by and I can't believe tomorrow is March 1st. I'm so ready for spring this seems to have been a long long winter!! I'm excited because on Sunday I get 3 girls and an adult from the Watoto Children's Choir staying with me for 2 nights. I'm really looking forward to seeing them in concert at our church on Sunday night...and to spend the day with them on Monday will be such a treat. I hope that we are able to bless them with comfort, rest and love.

This month I need to start living with more discipline, getting a schedule for my home and meal planning and all that stuff. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed at times and setting a schedule would fix that so easily. I need to set my priorities and start living a more purposeful life. I need to get more into God's word and really get my prayer and devotional life back in order.

Oh yeah and I went to the bank today to see if I'd be able to get a line of credit to build a house, but because I don't have an income they aren't sure if I would qualify. So frustrating, so next week I'll know if I'm building a home or looking for one that is already built. What I do know is that either way I know it will be God's will and I'm okay with that. I do know that I need a small er house, this house is just too big for the two of us.

So there it is, my life in a nutshell...I hope I wasn't too down here. I'm actually pretty happy right now, I have some really great friends in my life and we've even taken time to spend with each other. The last couple of Tuesday's I've been able to get together with a couple of friends for what we call widow's dinners (I'm actually the only widow...the others hubby's are just away or working). We've had great times with that, our kids play together and we get to visit, laugh and just enjoy each other. I'm looking forward to this Tuesday at my house. I've gotten to spend time with my friend Laura now that the roads aren't so bad and she can actually make it here...awesome. I have another friend who has been such a huge blessing to me and my family. God brought them into my life just as we were finding out Ron was ill...His timing is perfect.

Anyway now that I've gone down so many rabbit trails in this post that I don't know which way is up. I'm heading to bed and hopefull will sleep for a very long time!!!

I can totally relate to the not sleeping ... except I'm too lazy to get out of bed when I can't sleep. I just lay there snuggling with my body pillow.

I agree on the schedule - I find my days work out so much better when they're planned! (which I'm SO bad at)

And YAY for meal planning!! Menu Plan Monday was your idea in the first place, wasn't it? *wink wink*

I need to get more disciplined in my life too. I have been trying to be diligent in the menu/grocery planning area but in the reading the word/praying area I am lacking. How sad is that? Praying for you that you are able to build a home! That would be awsome! Is your house on the market now?

Jen you'll have to come to TAB when Laura is there talking about time management.

Christy, it isn't on the market yet...hopefully I'll get it together to have it put on in April
