I hope you all have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for so many things that I take for granted on a daily basis. This morning I read one of the blogs on my bloglist. It was entitled Redeemed. I'm always inspired by her postings and this morning was no different. She challenged her readers to give thanks for something that you would not normally be thankful for. So I did. It wasn't easy but it felt good. Just another thing that needs to be left in God's hands, not my own.

So now I'm just about to watch a movie with Doug and get ready for my 2nd Annual Midnight Shopping extravaganza in Foley! I'm so excited. And yes, I know I'm crazy. No need to point out the obvious.

In a Slump!

This post is going to be quite random. So here it goes....

Do you ever feel like you get in such a rut that you stop taking care of yourself? I think I'm there. I also think that wearing scrubs to work makes me lazy. They are very comfortable and I feel almost like I'm wearing pajamas. But, even when I'm out of work I've been wanting to be comfortable. UHHH. I hate that.

On top of the clothing issue I ran out of my wonderful MAC make-up sometime ago and had another brand in my drawer that I have been wearing and I don't like it. And, my hair is a mess! I need a trim really really bad and a little color wouldn't hurt either.

So tonight I will take a stand for over-worked, underpaid moms everywhere! I will wear my MAC make-up that I went out and bought tonight and I will NOT where scrubs to work tomorrow. And, tomorrow I will schedule that hair appointment and maybe even an eyebrow wax! Which leads me to my next question...should I go dark brown? I've always wanted to try dark brown but then Kole would be left out of the group with his blonde hair. Hmmm. Please post your thoughts. Love you all.

A Night Out.

Doug and I lead very busy lives. When he's home, I have committments. When I am home, he has committments. That's just how we roll. It's not always fun and I can get a little emotional about this crazy schedule at times but when we get a chance to reconnect I fall in love all over again. Tonight we got to go out alone while the kids spend the night with Nanna & PopPop. We looked at movies but decided against it since it really doesn't count for quality time if you ask me. So we started our Christmas shopping. I am so excited because I NEVER shop early let alone before Thanksgiving. But this year we have to plan ahead because Christmas will be in Canada this year for the Jolly's. Then we went and ate pizza at Tuscan Oven and it was very yummy! It was a great night.

A couple of thoughts

First, after calming down and thinking what just happened in our country I came to a few conclusions. While I will NEVER think abortion should be legal I did begin to think that legal or not these people who do choose to have an abortion most likely need Jesus. So while we have a president who will allow this masacre to happen, let's minister to these women and help them find "The Giver of Life" so they will choose on their own not to kill these innocent children.

Second, we did just witness history. The USA has a black president. I am so absolutely against judging people by the color of their skin. I do hope that through this our nation can put the racial injustices that occured many years ago behind us and move forward in harmony.

Last and totally off the subject, I just read one of the blogs in my list called "Bring the Rain." The blog address is You have to check it out and read the prayers that she has written for her children. It is beautiful.

So Sad...

I've never claimed to be a political person. But what I do know is that I am a Christian who believes in protecting the right to life for innocent little victims who do not have a voice. I cannot believe that we as Christians have just let this "one nation under God" elect this man as president.

I remember a discussion I had with someone at work and I flat out said to her I don't understand how you can stand here claiming to be a Christian and are willing to elect a man as president who will knowingly let a child be murdered because the mother does not want him/her. And unfortunately she is not the only Christian out there who has done this. You should be ashamed of yourself!

I'm not stupid enough to think that an entire election should be based on one issue but this is what matters to me and this is my blog. Like my pastor said, how can God bless a nation that is willing to throw away the life that He gives? I am saddened that my children are headed toward a Godless society and that Christians stand by and let it happen. It makes me sick!

God, I know you will not forsake your children but please protect us through this time.
