Happy Halloween!

Today is Halloween. I have to admit, it's not my favorite holiday but I try to make it fun for the kids. Carving pumpkins....not my favorite. Giving out candy to strangers....I didn't even like doing it as a kid. All the stress of getting everyone ready...not so much. Anyway, I'm trying to remain upbeat and not be annoyed by it. We may trick-or-treat our street and then go to our church's harvest party. I'm just praying my kids don't win a goldfish. I've been there and done that! I will try to post pictures of the kids on fleur-de-mobil so you can see them. I hope this finds you having some Halloween fun! (See I'm getting in the spirit already!).

A Quick Note

I am extremely tired, but since a couple of you asked I am giving an update on my housecleaning. It was great, sublime, so freeing! They not only cleaned the bathrooms, kitchen, and floors; but also the refrigerator, the stove, my blinds...I have never spent a more worthwhile $80! The best part...they are coming back a week from Monday! Yippee! It is much easier to keep the place clean in between cleanings. Usually I'm trying to find the time to deep clean, which I don't, and then to pick up and deep clean never seems to happen! I feel blessed beyond measure to have this luxury as long as the Lord sees fit.
I promise to update soon. But for now, I'm off to dreamland!

Oh, Bliss!

I am having my house cleaned tomorrow. I have not been as excited about something in quite some time! I have things put away; yes, I'm cleaning for the cleaning people. I cannot wait to go sub, and walk in to a clean house. Oh, the satisfaction it brings. I'm so tired of feeling tired and walking in to a list of things I need to do and feeling defeated! Andrew is going to greet them and get them started. Oh the joy I feel!

We had a good weekend. I asked my nephew, Nick, if he wanted to babysit on Friday and he was glad to do it. My kids LOVE him! He wouldn't let me pay him because he wanted to do it, which was a blessing. Andrew and I got to go out to dinner. It was fab. We saw our old friend, John Tolentino, who just got married two months ago for the first time. It was so fun to see him. I also got to read my new book, Sunset, by Karen Kingsbury. It was the end of a series called The Redemption Series, so it was like I visited with old friends there too.

I feel happy today and that's enough for me now.
I love you all. I feel very blessed!

Hi Friends!

Hello, I know it's been a while....sorry Mom! I always hear about it when I have not blogged in a while. I'm sure it's boring to see the same thing over and over. I have been very busy. I've been subbing to fund my Washington trip. I've been going to Bible study, Mary Kay meetings, finding Halloween costumes, fixing my car, spending time with family, watching Beverly Hills Chihuahua. It's a busy life, but someone has got to do it! Also, I blog at night, and frankly I've been fall asleep tired every night. I will be subbing this Thursday and Friday and Monday and Tuesday for a dear lady who's mother just passed away.

Also, I bit the bullet and cancelled the phone and cable. So, now we only have our cell phones if you call us. We are freeing up some money so that I can have my house cleaned twice a month! Yeah! I really need the help. There is only so much of me to go around. They come for the first time on Monday. I'll let you know how it goes. I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!!!!

I did get a couple of Christmas gifts for the kids. I'm buying them slowly so I don't charge too much! That's a vicious cycle!
I love you all!
