I can't believe I've been gone so long. I've been struggling with a few things this past week. My mom had surgery on Monday to remove 8" of her intestines; she's in MN and I'm here in CA and it's just not right. She's doing ok. My air condition went kaput last Thurs and it's been over 110 since then; outside and inside my house. We had computer problems at work for a day or two. My finances are a wreck right now. And, I've really been struggling with my walk with God. I just want to trust Him and obey Him and TOTALLY live my life for Him and I fall so short with every single breath I take. I think all of this was just a little bit of a downward spiral with my depression and hormones (which I feel, are a tool of the devil!). I'm doing better today.
I've also been swamped with school work. I'm enjoying it soooo much, though.
The kids and I, and my bff from high school are going to Disneyland on Friday for my bday!!! I am sooooooooooo excited!!! I haven't been for at least 5 or 6 years, probably more than that.

Now.....back to the grind!


  1. Ooooh Disneyland! We must be neighbors...I'm in Irvine. Enough of this heat, okay? And Happy Birthday...belly button or still celebrating your 1 yr? Prayers for your moms speedy recovery.

  2. oh my gosh; not fun to have no AC with the heat we are having!

    sorry its been a rough time for you; I know those who know the Lord are always struggling with our walk, but I believe he just wants us to walk and allow him to lead us and enjoy him and praise him for who he is and try to live the best we can for him; he sees our struggles, he's right there for us, but I totally know what you is a constant battle some days, but he is always victorius!

    happy birthday (whenever the official day is) you will have such a great time at Disneyland!! enjoy!


  3. Girl, it seems that when one thing goes wrong, many other things follow. I've learned that as long as I'm going through something, I'm getting strengthened by it. I'm glad to hear that school is going well for you. Keep me posted on your mom. Hate to hear she had to have surgery. Hang in there and keep smiling! HUGS!!!

  4. Life.
    Not having air conditioning though, is not cool.

  5. Happy birthday! I hope that you have a good trip and enjoy every moment. I also hope that you come back to some AC or cooler temps.

  6. Seems like everyone is struggling financially these days. Step II. God Is?

  7. Hey,

    I'm sorry to hear things aren't going your way, but a trip to the happiest place on Earth should change that. I hope you have a great trip!
