Saturday I rested all morning and then cleaned. I am starting to feel better, however, Josh is now feeling bad! But I started him on meds right away. Like I should have done. Hopefully it won't last that long!
Did you know that this coming weekend is the start of our VACATION!! YAY!
I can't wait just to take a break from everything. It will be so nice.
Yesterday was such a blast! We took our Jr High group and the couple who is on our team to Gatlinburg and a Ripley's musuem. It was so much fun and we had tons of laughs!! I will try and upload a pic when I get home. Josh took all the pics :)
Well I have tons of work and school work to do. So see ya tomorrow!!

Today Im grumpy. And I'm trying hard not to be. After not being in my house since Friday night (that includes our weekend away) I'm ready for my own home and bed. My in-laws have been so gracious. They have housed us and our 2 dogs. And they have fed us. But there is nothing like your own home.
It does seem to be that I'm getting a summer cold, or its just allergies. Last night I was able to sleep on an air matress. I know this sounds weird but I find then so comfortable! J does not. :)
enough of the complaining.
Up date on the bee situation:
Termanex came out and sprayed. Told us that our case was very unusual. Bees usually aren't swarming houses... thank god.
So that is all. Have to go to class tonight boo! Wish I could skip :/
Ill make it :)

They covered out mirror and lights. Just hundreds of them. I'm getting chills even now.
Josh has pictures, but um. I'm not posting because I DON'T want to see them! So sorry.
So at about 1am, after spraying hornet and wasp spray, we decided not to spend the night at our home. Over to the in-laws we go.
However before this we had a great weekend!
Josh, my brother, and I went to Johnson City to visit our cousin and her boyfriend. They have a new apartment. Her first place on her own!! Makes me sad! To me she is still my adorable, beautiful little cousin! (She is still adorable and beautiful!) We brought Pixel with us to play with Jess's new puppy Copper. Abby was being dogsitted by the inlaws. I missed her though!
|Jess and I|
We got to her apartment and it was beautiful!! This is the view of the lake that night... Loved it!
|Pixel (Left) and Copper (right) playing! The loved eachother!|
|This is Josh's new goofy face ... He knew I was putting this on here :)|
|My dear brother! Glad he got to come!|
|Jess and I all grown up :(|

You know I have a rule of thumb, If you have to question intentions, actions, words... step back and pray. DO NOT proceed with out praying.
Psalms 34:4 Pull me from the trap my enemies set for me, for I find protection in you alone.
My protection is from him. You see I believe in Heaven and I believe in Hell. I believe that there is satan. Not some image of a firey man with a pitchfork, but a true spiritual enemy.
In John 10:10 it says "The thief comes only to steal and (A)kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
In Ephesians 4:27 "Do not give the devil opportunity"
In Ephesians 6:12 "12 Our fight is not against people on earth. We are fighting against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness. We are fighting against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly places." (ERV)
My point is, we are in a spiritual fight. There are going to be temptations being brought across our paths.
What I'm trying to say and something I'm trying to practice is BE AWARE!!! Stand your ground with temptations. Live WITHOUT reproach. Listen to the Holy Spirit when he brings something to your spirit. Get grounded in the word of God!! It is our sword to fight this battle. It's serious. The enemy is out to steal what makes you happy. He does not want happy whole families, healthy couples, healthy churches, lives lived in holiness, joy...
Be aware. Cling to the scriptures. Get into Gods presence. Dwell with him.
Now, on the flip side. YOU and YOU alone are responsible for your actions. If your proceed in an extramarital affair, drugs, lying, stealing.. and so on. Yeah the opportunity might have been presented to you be the powers of darkness, however YOU choose to act.
So pray, abide in scripture so that he may abide in you (John 15) , check yourself, be aware.

And they way they have reached out to me. Something that I loved that was said by a dear friend of mine.
"I do not NEED anyone, I only NEED God. I choose to allow you in my life and share it with me" SQF
So, even though it may be painful. I'm not going to be counting on certain people anymore. Because frankley they let you down, but God is always faithful...
* Stepping off of soapbox*
Now its time for some fun!

2 months ago No sweet lulibye
2 months ago my worst fears
2 months ago drawing near
2 months ago you slipped away
2 months ago I'll never forget the way
2 months ago started my journey
2 months ago I'm still hurting
I started writing this yesterday and couldn't finish until this morning. I'm sad. I'm hurting. I'm thankful for the text and messages yesterday. They meant so much! It helped Josh and I through a very difficult day. Thank you again to the ones (you know who are) you reached out to us yesterday <3
We miss our little baby so much. And we have some many questions. However we have peace knowing that God is doing something in our lives... Even though we are suffering through this pain I pray that in some way this is going to be a testimony for HIS glory.

I know dorky right?? LOL Its a guilty pleasure.. Singing karaoke Patsy Cline :) There are some other very funny vids on there of J and my brother heehee
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
so to warn you this maybe a little random :) You forgive me though right?
I need to seriously do a post on the 4th! I have pics and vids to share :) I will try to work on that tonight and hopefully get it posted for tomorrow or at least Saturday LOL - forgiven again??
First, I'm seriously loving Professor Sheldon (seriously that's his name). I feel actually privileged to have such a brilliant person to be teaching me. He has studied under some very impressive people and is impressive in his own right. Even though he does go the ENTIRE 4hours of class I feel like I'm really learning. Classes like this make me love being in school. Does anyone remember these??
|Dr Sheldon loves his transparencies!|
I've been thinking about the baby. And no I haven't mentioned much of it for the simple fact I don't want my blog to be all sad. And I'm not sad all the time. But I never STOP thinking about her. I feel bad because some things have taken a backseat to this whole ordeal. For instance the (2) blogswaps I'm a part of. But I've been so depressed I just couldn't deal with any of it. I feel much better. These last two weeks have been better.
I was kind of bummed. I signed up to receive a blanket in memory for the baby and the organization told me that they were taking a break and would let me know when they would start again. :( This made me so sad. So I'm thinking about making my own for her. On the 15th it will be two months and just writing that takes my breath.
Josh and I are also going to talk more in depth about trying soon or waiting. The plan was to wait three months after making a plan with the Dr.'s. But now I'm second guessing my decision. Prayer is always appretiated.
My heart is just aching for our child today... it doesn't ever go away. Today it just seems a bit intense.

Got a call from my brother and he just got his first paycheck from his new job. (So proud of him) He asked if Josh and I wanted to go see a movie *his treat* OF COURSE!! Bro and I picked Josh up and headed to the neatest drive-thru place. Its called "Cook Out"
|source google images :)|
You choose a combo for $4.37 - you get on main thing, 2 sides, and a drink. (Cool thing is the sides the entrees on the sides menu!!
Then we went to see MIB3!! Let me tell you the best one out of all 3! LOVED LOVED IT!
It was a great treat! I have the best brother!
LAZY!! I slept until 10ish...I then watched some HGTV and ate some breakfast. After that I started getting my Saturday cleaning done. Then Josh came home with a migrane (b/c he didn't eat any breakfast before he went to work.) got him a snack. While he was resting I needed to make lunch.
(Your going to be so proud!)
I cooked on the gas grill all by myself! Turned it on, lit it and everything :)
Went out side and watched Pixel play and run. I worked on my Children's Church lesson
Later on I decided to give myself a pedicure... That was nice :)
After that Josh grilled some steak and made shrimp stir-fry! Yummy!
Then we played some Guitar Hero! It was the first time we have gotten to play in our house.. We were able to "rock" out because this time we didn't have people living around us :)
Got up early for church. Worship was amazing. And the kids were great in Children's church. They acted out the story of baby Moses and then we made collages of pictures from magazines of the things that protect us, to remind us that God has a plan and protects us.
After church we headed home and got a call from the in-laws to go eat :)
Then it was home where I was supposed to be studying but fell asleep for 2 hours!! It was crazy, Josh said I was
We made some breakfast for dinner and watched some TV
Well that was my weekend! :)
How was yours??
