• Organizing

    Do you like to organize?  I love to organize.  I like to organize my craft area, bedroom, kitchen.  My laptop files, my pictures and even today I organized my blog reader!  😛 Like I said, I really do like to organize.  It makes me feel good to have things in order and where I can find them.  With that, I love to collect things that help me organize.  Cubbies, plastic bins, cute holders and more.  You get me in a store that has organizing items, and I want to spend tons of money, I don’t, but I want to.  lol Now I’m not saying my house is perfect or completely…

  • Biking

    I’ve mentioned before Paul and I wanted to start hiking and biking, I thought we would start hiking first, but I was wrong.  We were just looking at some used bikes at a local bike store and we found 2 at a really good price that we couldn’t pass up.  It’s the first time I’ve ever bought a bike for myself, and actually had that bike fitted for me.  The owner of the bike shop down town was great!  He really helped us pick bikes that work for us, made sure the seat and handle bars were set just for me.  We went back and forth on helmets, but decided…

  • Blessed by friends and family

    As I’m coming up to my 6 week mark since my surgery, I’ve been thinking a lot about the first few days after I got home.  My family and my best friend really rallied around me and took care of me.  They made sure we had food in the house, someone always with me for the first week so I didn’t have to pick anything up myself and around in case I had issues.  Plus just being with me chatting and keeping me company.  You can’t ask for better friends and family than that.  🙂  I wish I had thought to get a picture of my mom and me.  She…

  • What do you do for fun?

    Have you ever asked yourself that question?  What do you do for fun? I have to be honest, I haven’t asked myself that question, purposely and seriously ask myself that, for so long, maybe never.  I’ve thought it, you know with things like ‘This is one of my hobbies.’  ‘Yes, I like to crochet.’  ‘I’m trying to learn photography.’  things like that.  But not that specific question. Then last week I was chatting with a new friend on Facebook.  A woman I become friends with from an online bible study group I was a part of.  We were just chatting back and forth getting to know each other a little…

  • My summer continued

    Like I said in another post, I’ve had some medical issues these past months.  During the middle of May, when we were trying to get schooling done, graduation set up and Sarah settled, I found I was not only highly anemic but had very low red blood count.  I knew I was more tired for the past year or so, but I was always excusing it away.  I just need to push harder, I’m not taking care of myself enough etc…  Turns out there was a very valid reason I was so exhausted.  I had to have two iron infusions, which helped some, but then I had to have surgery…
