Cough Cough

Just sniffling and coughing as I take a break to talk a little bit. I've been fighting off this cold for over a week now... it been really mild. Little sore throat, little sniffle here and there. Usually I can break these kinds of things in a day. Hot tea, honey, yogurt, repeat hot tea and throw in some orange juice and my daily vitamin and I'm back to normal in a flash. This has just been lingering! It's driving me nuts. I was better for a day and then it came back worse. Fever, sore throat, congestion, cough ... yuck! I think it's finally on it's way out though. I actually feel like doing some work today.

I've been thinking about Christmas a lot and I think I would really like to do some handmade gifts for my nieces and nephews. My mom is doing felt food for the twins... it's soo adorable. You can find an example here. I've been wanting to make Corben a hat I really love these that I found on etsy. They look like they would be easy to sew up. I'm going to keep looking and I'll post what I make here and try to give you a little tutorial on how I did it. Well back to my day job. Have a great day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh the excitement. Good food, Family and Friends. That pie you only see twice a year on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I'm so ready for the holidays. I have my "best of Frank Sinatra" humming in the background. Sigh. I love the holidays. It always makes me reflect on the year... relationships that have come... some that have gone... new house... my first year of motherhood. So much has happened this year. I've changed so much but am more the same than ever. I'm becoming more like my mother every day. Which is comforting. If I could be some of the woman she is I'll be doing pretty good for myself. She's always been my picture of a God-fearing woman. She gave even when we didn't have very much. If she had it she would give it.. be it time, food, prayer,... She's headstrong but knows when to stand behind her guy, is always quick to tell you to have faith and don't be so negative, will pray through for you like no one else, Can make a few ingredients feed a family of 6 in a pinch :). How she did it I don't know. But they raised 4 pretty good kids. I just hope I can say the same thing someday.

::smile:: I can still hear her voice always speaking positive things over us - "I've raised 3 mighty men of God, and one mighty woman of God." So tomorrow it will be just like it is every year... lots of loud family craziness - politics, tech-nerdiness, business-talk and the tradition of hearing mom say "Take it OUTSIDE!" As the boys try to take each other down. Yes we are all adults... but it never fails... happens every year. One of them says something smart to the other and it begins :) Gotta love big families. We all have our problems, but we're family and we love each other. Thank you God for your many blessings and that we are all healthy and together this holiday season! Don't forget to hug someone and tell them you love them! Happy Thanksgiving! Bring on the Holidays... keep singing Frank...

This is hilarious

Okay you might not find this as hilarious as I do because I'm a designer. But I couldn't help but share this video.

It still astounds me that people hire designers but then assume that designers know nothing and they could do it better. Does that make any sense?

Assistant to the regional manager

That's right! I almost forgot to post about this!

Chad is now the Assistant Manager at Peachmac! We are so excited and Chad is so happy at his job. Well he was happy before but this is just icing on the cake.

God is so good! Showing up right on time as usual.

So did you miss me?

Hello All

We have internet!! woo hoo!

For those of you that may not know. We have been moving this past week so it's been a little crazy around here. We now have a back yard and plenty of space for Corben to run (well for now crawl) around. They couldn't get internet on over here until today so we have been going through withdrawal! It was kinda nice though. I feel like we talked more because we didn't have it.

Moving was a very quick decision and we had to backwards move because of Chad's schedule. We moved the big stuff and now we are slowly moving over the little stuff. I still have about 1/2 of our apartment to pack. It's taking me a while because Chad is working all the time (which is great, don't get me wrong!)and I have to keep baby out of everything while I pack. I am not moving again until I can pay someone to move me! It is so worth it! Especially when you have a little one that is at that perfect getting-into-everything stage. We're making it work and hopefully we will be out of there completely in the next few days and then I will just have to clean everything.

I know it will all be worth it in the end but I am just so exhausted and I never want to see another brown box again!

I do love our new place though. Still a great location - close to I-20 and the park.
Now we can actually fit people into our house! We can actually invite people over to hang out at our place! I really missed that. I love being a hostess! First order of business is Corben's Birthday Party! I'm so excited... I think we are going to do a car theme. I've got the invitations designed already... "BEEP BEEP, Corben is turning 1!"

I'm sure I will discuss the party plans as I get them together. So much to do and so little time!
