My Personal Journal
YIKES!! You really want to know about me huh? =) Well, I'm the Momma (at least at my
house) and I just love it. My kids are 10½, (gotta get that in there) and 3½, and I've
been married to their dad for almost 5 years now. My life is very normal and goes on in
a very ordinary town which suits me just fine. I'm a struggling Christian who loves the
Lord but has trouble keeping the "Debbel" (that's courtesy of Joshua) out of my way. I'm
also a Stay At Home Mom and I drive a school bus part-time. (Believe it or not, I really
love that too.) Well, that's about it. See, normal and ordinary. I wouldn't want it any
other way. Thanks for stopping by today and please do remember to sign my guestbook.

I decided to go on a diet today. I've wanted to for a really long time now, but just never found the
motivation or the will power. I realized in talking with my husband the other night (a rare thing I
must say) that my children are being deproved of balanced and proper nutrition because I don't wanna
make the effort to cook on our stove top. I've said for quite a while that I would be happy to cook
more if my oven worked but the truth is that I've been very lazy and didn't wanna deal with the heat
that comes with cooking on the stove top. So anyway, I went to the grocery store yesterday and bought
two six packs of SlimFast. OK. So I've been pretty good today
by my usual standards anyway. I had my shake for breakfast while veryone else in the house was munching
on fried egg sandwiches. I broke down around lunch and ate the 1 1/2 pork chops left over from dinner
last night, but I did drink my shake for lunch too. I gave in around 4PM and had a handful of Wavy
Lays potato chips and then waited like a good girl until dinner to eat again. To top the evening off,
I had one serving of spaghetti. I do have to admit that I did drink "COKE" but I cut way down!!! Yay
me! =) LAWD IT SEEMS LIKE MY WHOLE LIFE IS ABOUT FOOD!! So, what else did went on in my world today?
Ummmm...I sat at my computer most of the day but did manage to gather my family at mealtime to sit
together at the dinner table which is something we haven't done in a very long time.

ACK!! I was doing my thing on the pc Monday morning and them it went KAPUT! I tried really hard not
to panic and did pretty good too. I thought that I might be able to get myself out of the jam that I
suddenly found myself in but to no avail. I called my cousins and they tried to help over the phone.
Nope. So I had to wait a couple days until a paycheck was available so that I could go buy new and
improved goodies for my puter. I have been offline for what 4 days and I've been miserable. There
were so many things I wanted to do. =( The upside is that I got a new hard drive, modem and cd-burner,
and Windows ME. My puter actually connects at 115kBps now. =) I'm wondering how I ever got along
with my old setup. Welp, there's no time for such ponderances now. I've got a million things to catch
up on. I can mark this page off my list at least. =D
MORE TO COME!!
This page, like all of my others, is a continual work in progress as it should be. We humans need to
grow in order to experience life at it's fullest and that has become part of my personal goal. I will
use this page to post updates for my site. I hope you'll peek in again to see what I've been up to.
