Long Day.

Well, today has been a long day... We woke up and got ready for church this morning. Got there early. We didn't have church as usual... we started a hour later because we had a 5th Sunday service and a "Fiesta" dinner afterwards.

I stopped off at Kroger and bought 3 cartons of sour cream... then I got to the church a few minutes after 9 and once Bro. Martine got there I helped roll burritos (They were salty though.) They had all kinds of mexican foods... I left their full.

I rode with my husband as he took the van routes home... then called Connie after that while waiting on him at the church...

We left and came home... I was still on the phone with Connie... haha! We went and got ready and left for his company picnic. They gave away a computer and a digital camera... both things we had. LOL They didn't pull our names anyways! *smiles* We left there at 8:45... and now I am home. I took a small nap I guess... I think I dosed off for a bit.. and Travis came in and pulled me out of the bed to come out here with him. He wanted me to watch a church service on ABNGlobal. He isn't even watching it.. He is listening to it.. so I guess I am sorta kinda doing the same.

I checked all of my "places" and I am sitting here.. I figured I would give an update... I was going to call my parents but I will try my hardest to do that tomorrow.

Anyways, when visiting one of my places I saw that congratulations were due to a wonderful couple... so congrats to Liz and Chris who will in 9 months or so have a new addition! :) I am still awing!

Night you all.


Not much happened today.

Nothing exciting today. I left from work at 3:30 to cut some overtime... I still have 2 hours to cut. Anyways, I came home checked email, folded some whites, fell asleep! I woke up around 7:30 and looked at the clock... went back to sleep! and MIL woke me up around 8:30 and I started dinner. I made Breaded Chicken Tenderloins, Chicken and Broccoli Rice-a-roni, and herb and butter mashed potatoes. It was good.
Travis just got home.. he took out the trash and then I made him a plate and now I am sitting here.. trying to figure out what to do for the next hour! I might watch an episode of 7th Heaven. Or I could play Sims 2. I think I will save Sims 2 for tomorrow. LOL


Storms, why are they the way they are?

So, I've missed a few days in blogging... Oppsy. Things get busy and well, I just feel like updating on those busy days. Or I just do not feel like typing that much. Did you ever notice that when you blog you are typing way too much. Ha. Just joking. I feel that way sometimes though. "I don't think I am gonna update because that would require me to type alot." Oh well. I am here now and that is what matters!

We had a great Kids Power Hour in the AM... We went to Dewey's on the Levee after Sunday School... We decided to go with Tiffhanie (She had never been there) who brought along Taylor, her cousin. Well, the clouds were dark and we could tell it was going to rain. So, I told my husband to grab the umbrella because I figured by the time we walk down it would start to rain. And Boy did it ever! We got caught in a thunder storm. I saw the lightning flash and all of a sudden it thundered so loud that it scared me!!! Poor Taylor, who is afraid of thunderstorms started to cry and wanted to walk back 3 blocks when we could easily cross the street and be at the levee. So we ended up crossing the street. We went to the restrooms and kinda composed ourselves. I pushed the air dryer downward towards my face and hair. It didn't help out much but it did an okay job for what I had to go with! So, we ate at Dewey's and then came home!

Bro. Enmen (District Youth Leader's Dad) came and preached a word to us. He preached a message about apostolic revival with demonstration. It was a great message. I don't have my notes in front of me or other wise I would write more about it and give scripture text! He prophesied to Travis and I. I was running away to the water fountain and Travis told me to come here... I was trying to tell him I was going to get a drink and then he motioned toward Bro. Enmen that he wanted to pray for us, etc. God never seems to fail no matter what. Bro. Enmen letting God use him to speak to me was what I needed. I had been feeling unhappy. (Kinda still am but not as much! I think getting away on this little vacation is what I will need and what will do it.) But, God showed up and made things better!

I will do my best to be all that God wants and be a vessel so that God can use my voice for Him. I wish I could remember all that Bro. Enmen had said. But I can't :(

I worked came home and cooked Stouffer's Lasagna for us and then Travis told me to get ready... I got in the car and he had me close my eyes... I had no clue where we were! At first I knew where we were.. and then he started to turn where there wasn't even turns.. using his turn signal and everything! We ended up at UDF and he bought me some ice cream! YUM.

Tuesday (that'd be yesterday)
The only thing I remember is I worked and went to BK for dinner... Came home and called Robyn about a meeting they told us about on Monday. And found out if she was going to pick me up or not... Settled that then I was told to come into the bedroom by my husband who was studying on his laptop on the bed. And he told me that there was a mouse underneath the bed. And he had me looking... I couldn't see a thing and he pointed out his laptop mouse that had fallen... I started cracking up but I could have hit him so hard! Haha.

Today, I got up, got ready... Robyn (another CSS from work) picked me up at 7:00. We drove to Walmart clocked in.. and went to Brierwood Hall in Hebron for a Labor Relations meeting. (It was cold in that place. Oh and the cookies they had there were so good. I am still wondering where they got them! And the pizza for lunch that they served was yummy too.) The meeting lasted until 12 something... we went back to Walmart did a CBL of questions and then we clocked out and she dropped me back off here. I told her we would have to hang out some time else when not work related!

So, now I am sitting here.. having typed out a prayer list that my hubby was supposed to do for Bro. Smith... waiting on my Ramen noodles to soak in the water so that I can eat them! LOL Healthy I know. I am glad I updated... maybe I'll have another one later.

Oh and I finished Loving Tenderness (the inspirational romance that I was reading.) Very good book! :) Any books that you think I would enjoy reading... or that you like that you want to share... leave me a comment. I like to read every once in a while. I am trying to get back in the habit.


Yard Sales.

Granny and MIL had a yard sale today! We got $14 from some of the stuff that sold. Not bad considering Travis and I were not here to do the sale... It is nice having someone else sale for you! Haha. I'd like to take a Saturday off just to go to yard sales. I saw so many today.. but couldn't go to them :(

Seriously going to be hunting for another job! :) I get underpaid for what I do at Walmart. Of course it is probably going to be that way every where... but I think I can do better! No, I KNOW I can do better.

Besides, I am ready to leave retail!

Hey, Liz, I am so sorry that you woke up with a bad case of heartburn. Tums can be good friends, indeed! I am afraid that lately I have been needing something better/stronger than it... and Protonix has been there for me! Haha. Oh and how is H&R coming along?

Well, I think I am gonna read a bit before going to bed. Oh and I am gonna pray that I don't wake up with heartburn.. cause we had Gold Star for dinner around 8:00! Ha.

Nighty Night.

SouthView - contemporary southren cuisine!

I failed to mention that on Thursday we went to SouthView at Newport on the Levee. It was really good! I wish we could have gone at lunch hours though cause there were some items on that menu that I wanted to try.. Oh well... I told hubby that we would have to go back.

So, ladies and gents... If you are looking for a high class place. Dinner entree prices range from $18 to $26 during dinner hours.

Now Travis and I ordered BBQ Chicken with Grilled Corn Succotash. He got a side of Whipped Potatoes with SouthView Herb Butter and I got the 24-hour Mac‘n’Cheese Classic as a side. I have to say I tried some of his potatoes and they were good.. But their Mac n Cheese is too die for. Okay maybe not literally.... however, I might have just spent the $18 dollars on it! (If I was wealthy enough. HAHA) I definitely love me some good cooking.

I couldn't finish my chicken and some of the succotash so it came home with me. I'll eat it tomorrow so that it doesn't go to waste. Or I'll let hubby eat it!


Hearburn Update?

So, I said I would start writing in this thing better! And about 22 hours later, here I am again! :) Well I got into the doctor today at 4:45 pm.. Luckily she was able to schedule me in.

So, Mom-in-law calls me and wants to know if I want to go to BK with her and Granny. I decide to and get a Veggie Burger and Side Salad from there. And then I come back home and since Mom-in-law couldn't take me to the doctor's because of her doctor appt at 4... she had Okey (her brother) take me and drop me off. Her and Father-in-law come in before I was even asked back to the room. So, they waited in the lobby the whole time I was in the doctor's office... I was in there waiting for about an hour.

Well, the doctor gave me some more Protonix (a more expensive Prilosec) and is having a lady call me tomorrow to schedule an endoscopy. She said I could have an ulcer... Just a small test to see what is up if anything. So, I'd ask all of you that are reading this to pray for me! (In one of the forums I go to, a friend said she likes the endoscopys for the drugs... haha that is bad isn't it. Mom-in-law said that they drug you up really good... so yay for drugs! Just kidding!)

Oh about the blister on my foot. She told me to keep a very close eye on it. With diabetes, we want no infections... To let it pop on its own and she gave me a prescription of antibiotics if it happens to get "angry." If not then I throw the script away!

Well, I got to get a few things done within the next 45 minutes! I need to fold some laundry, clip some coupons, and then try to go to bed! I work from ten to seven tomorrow.



Heartburn and Blisters!

Hello Bloggers! Well, I am really going to try writing in here more often only because I'd love to look back on it and read what I have wrote, if you know what I mean! Anyways, on to today... well yesterday... er, let's just say it is almost 2 am and I haven't gone to bed yet! So about 7-11-07..

My day went okay. It could have been better without dealing with the heartburn today. I thought I would have had to go home early but I stuck it out because I didn't want to leave Brandi there by herself! The heartburn has been around for weeks. I did go to the doctor and she gave me some Protonix and it seemed to help for the time she gave it to me... but I ended up getting it again. I haven't really changed anything in my diet although I could really help myself out in doing so... I know the heartburn isn't coming from diet I don't think. It all started with eating some chili though a long while back and I woke up the next morning with severe heaviness in my chest. I know it was just heartburn though.. But with it being long lasting I am worried it could be something else. Although I have faith that whatever it is God will heal me, I still think I need to go to the doctor. So, I am going to try my best to get in before 11 AM tomorrow.. or today whichever you choose to call it! I'll call it tomorrow cause I haven't slept yet!

Also, I have a blister on my right foot... right below my big toe.. I don't know how to treat it beings I am a diabetic... I don't want to pop it myself because that can cause infection! So, I am going to ask the doctor about that too... Oh and my "Soda" brand shoes that I got a shoe carnival back in Dec.. have finally died... *sniff* but I think they also caused the evil blister (although they never caused a blister before... I am just blaming them because that is what I had on my feet all day long)! So, I am gonna have to find some new comfy brown shoes...

Church went good tonight.. My wonderful husband preached the Word tonight... Regardless of what he thinks, I think he did a great job preaching out of Romans... He titled it "Conformed or Transformed?" People were just scatter brained tonight and didn't seem to get it. He preached what God had given him that is for sure.. And I know that the Word that was brought forth will not come back void!

After church we went to Applebee's and I had a Chicken Fajitas Wrap and fries. It was good. Didn't even worsen the heartburn!

Well, that is all I am going to write for now... I am getting even more tired! Be blessed.


Getting ready to get ready

Wow. What a great title huh. I am getting ready to get ready for church... well here as soon as I make this post. I haven't the slightest idea of what I am gonna be wearing though. I have been getting sick of the same old clothes.... I'd wish someone would pour down a bag of hand-me downs or something! Or maybe even getting a shopping spree to a clothing store. LOL

Anyways, I am stuffed kinda. I could go for some ice cream before church though... LOL I know that seems crazy. Oh well... Anyways, I best get ready!!!! It will take me a while to find something to wear!

Leave comments. Be blessed.
