I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

Moms Birthday


(mom after she got home)


Last Sunday we had a surprise party for my Mom. I think the best surprise was that I got my brother and his family to come to the party. We usually only see them at Christmas. We had a great time. My mom was so surprised. We even had a few moments were it was just the 5 of us. The 3 kids and Mom and Dad. We don’t get to have that very often, it was really nice. We all pitched in and got my Mom a Chi iron. It is a hair iron, a professional one at that. We are going to go see my Grandfather on Fathers Day. That will be nice. I have not seen Paw paw in about a year, but the really nice thing is we are all going as a family.

( all of us waiting for her to get home)

You want to know why I say think??? Well it is happened really suddenly. This started months ago, when the duplex we rented was foreclosed, and we were forced to find another place to live. We looked at this house in Cleburne. It is a couple of miles away from Patty. The house was for sale owner financing so we tried for the house. It came back that they wanted a co signer so we said forget it. Fast forward 5 months later Steve’s cell ring and it is the people with the house. They have found someone who will fiance us, but they need 1,800 down. Well, since Steve is not making that much money, and he has yet to get paid at his new job yet we told them there is no way we can come up with the down payment. They said no big deal we will work it out. We will be closing on our new home by next Friday. This is just so overwhelming. We have wanted our own house for the last couple of years, but I did not think it would happen so quickly. This has literally fell into our laps. GOD has truly blessed us. We have been praying for a home of our own. Please believe that GOD is in your life and that He truly does want you to be happy. All He asks is to believe in him and have a relationship with Him. Have faith it does take time but nothing is impossible with GOD!!!!!! I feel like I am going to explode with happiness. It is a three bedroom two bath. It has a converted garage. It is about 30 years old, but that is ok. It is on half of acre. It has a beautiful corner brick fireplace. They are putting in all new appliances except the fridge, but that is ok cause we have one. They are going to repair the roof and replace the ac units. When we get pictures I will post them. I just want to scream with happiness!!!!!!

Quote Note 7

Shopping is better than sex. If you’re not satisfied after shopping you can make an exchange for something you really like.

I think this speaks for itself

We went to bingo last night. It was fun. Patty won $100, and Steve won $20. The only thing I did was horseshoe. A good time was had by all. After bingo we went to the gym, but we were tired. I only did 12 minutes on the treadmill. I also did 2 minutes on a bike. I did not do very well at the gym. Today we are going to Mayfest. It should be pretty fun, but it will kind of hard to get my 8 glasses of water in but I am going to try my hardest. I will be trying some new healthier recipes out this next week. I have a fruit and yogurt salad I can not wait to try.

Quote Notes 5

The problem with the designated driver program, it’s not a desirable job, but if you ever get sucked into doing it, have fun with it. At the end of the night, drop them off at the wrong house.

 I had to use this because I love Jeff Foxworthy. It really is important someone be the designated driver. Please do not drink and drive.

I did something I thought I could not do. I use the Walk Away the Pounds DVD. There are 3 workouts on the DVD. A one mile, a two mile and a three mile. I have been really afraid to try the two mile. I really thought that there was no way I could go past the mile mark. Guess what? I did the whole two miles. I admit that I had to slow down once or twice, but I kept moving and I finished it. I also did my mile on the treadmill so that is 3 miles today!!!! I also got all eight glasses of water. I think that is my third day in a row to get all my water. The only thing is I like to go to the gym later in the evening after dinner, but there is one problem, after I am home for about half an hour I get really hungry. It is not like yeah I could eat or I could wait, it is feeling like I am starving. I try to ignore it, but it wont go away. I try to eat some fruit, and I still feel hungry, but I wait 30 minutes to see if it goes away, and it does not so I go get a 100 calorie pack of something or other. Is there anything I can do to stop being so hungry after a workout or something that I could eat that would satisfy my hunger? I feel so strong right now I have no desire to go to bed. I have not felt this good in a long long time.
