When Life Hands Your Lemons....

It's been forever since I last posted. Other than Auburn beating Alabama I've had a pretty rough couple of weeks. The entire week before Thanksgiving I was sick. Spent alot of time sleeping and watching t.v. in my big ole bed.To make things worse, Wesley was away with the Male Chorale and I was missing him terribly.

Then there was last week. I was actually off on Monday which was nice. I spent all day cleaning then went with Wesley to Firehouse Subs and the grocery store to fight all the other lunatics who waited until 3 days before Thanksgiving to do their grocery shopping. I did alot of baking during the week;I made 6 Pumpkin Cheesecakes, several pumpkin pies and a couple of pound cakes. They all turned out real nice, and I didnt recieve the first complaint. I had to work 9-6 on Tuesday and Wednesday which wasn't too bad because we weren't really all that busy. All the fam got into town on Wednesday night and of course it was just LOUD! When all the Clark's and Crim's get together it's like a stadium full of fans at a football game. Everyone does their very best to talk louder than the others. It's annoying and sometimes causes drama.

Thursday was real nice and of course as always made me realize that I have oh so much to be thankful for. The food was fabulous. I actually made the sweet potato cassarole, and believe it or not they were good for my first time. Let's just say I ate so much food that when I laid down in the bed that night I could't sleep because I was miserably full.

I was disappointed on Friday and Saturday that I wasn't able to do any shopping. I guess I'll just have to buy all of my Christmas presents this year at full price. I'm sure with my nerves I was better off just working at the Bridal Shoppe and keeping it on the DL!

Friday night I did go over to the shop for a huge bon-fire and cook out with the Hughes' and Gilmores. All the Clark's that were staying here with us went and that is something that dosen't usually happen. Hopefully we can make it a habit to do more things together.

We'll I'm outta here. My actual point of posting was to say "Happy Belated Turkey Day" and that I am thankful you are my friend!

Blah, Blah, Blah

Well, the weekend is over and I feel as if I accomplished absolutely nothing.

Saturday was probably one of the most exhaustin/longest days I have had in a long time; I got up at 4:30 a.m. to take Wesley to BCF to catch the bus finally at 6:30 a.m. they left, got home at 7:00 a.m. to get ready for work, and at 7:40 a.m. I was at Golden Chorale for breakfast with the boss, worked from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., went to a baby shower until 8:00 p.m. and was in bed by 8:30 p.m., and sick as a dog.

After not sleeping on Saturday night, and feeling like my head had been run over by a truck, I got up and drove over to Blue Lake in Andalusia to see all my buddies from Chrysalis. It was so refreshing to visit with each of them, especially Mama Jean, Bug, and Momma K.

I wish you all could meet Mama Jean, she is the most godly woman I have ever met. I found out yesterday that she was recently found out that her Colin cancer had relapsed, and is taking chemotherapy again. As bad as she has to feel, her amazing faith keeps her going. She is a faithful prayer warrior. She continually reminds me that she prays for me each morning, and each night before she goes to bed. It just amazes me, after everything that she has been through, cancer twice, loosing her youngest son last year, the passing of her husband, she still stands strong in her faith, never doubting for a moment that the Father has a perfect plan for her life, and that He is in absolute control.

Ok, enough said. I feel like crap. Wesley's gone and I'm still sick. I think the worst is here and hopefully by Wednesday I will feel better. I'm outta here!

Only Time Will Tell

dang, it's been forever since i last posted. i sit down atleast once a day with the intnetions of posting, but it never seems to happen. i'm in IT 202 right now listening to Mrs. Bugg ramble on about power point. Things have been hectic. My emotions are running wild. I'm just out right tired. The semester is slowly coming to a close and I have oh so much work to do between now and the week before finals. thanksgiving break will be filled with lots of homework and study time. OH JOY!

wesley is going out of town this weekend with the Male Chorale which really sucks for me, but will be such an enjoyable time for him. Days are going by so quickly and we still haven't gotten to spend any time together. I thought I was so excited about him going into the army (don't get me wrong I am), but the more and more I think about him leaving in January the more my heart hurts. I love my hubby so good!

well, enough is enough for now. its time to head to the bridal shoppe for the afternoon! this ought to be a swell afternoon!
