Wanna see....

Ever wonder what happens when us women who are masters at multi tasking start the dish water to wash dishes and then think Ohhhh I need to change the laundry around and to do that I need to get 2 hangers so I can put the shirts on them.  And then think did I get the right stuff for that recipe....let me check it online.  And then ohhhhh I gotta pee cuz thats what happens when you are drinking your SECOND LITER of Strawberry Kiwi Green Tea.  And while you are peeing you think ya know what I haven't changed the wax in the warmer in the bathroom....need to do that.  And the 2 hangers I have in my hand need to go to the clothes that are waiting to be changed around when I go thru the kitchen I see

The sink at ALMOST overflow point!!!!!  Lesson to everyone....DON'T try to be a multi tasker!!!!!

Really as I sit here tonight ignoring a few texts, I'm reminded of lots of things.  A few days ago I read a blog explaining why a woman had deleted some of her "friends" on her Facebook account and after that I have went thru slowly over the last few days & deleted some of the so called "friends" on my account. 

And now of course those people are questioning why I deleted them.  I did it for lots of reasons. 

*You didn't keep up with me on Facebook.  Probably never looked at my page or even knew what was going on in my life.
*Your relationship with me only brought me down & in a place where I didn't need to go.
*I only want good Godly relationships.....I'm tired of the relationships that I'm embarrassed about or have to hide anything about the relationship. If God looked at my Facebook page or even my text messages on my cell phone I don't want to have to hide my face or try to figure out some lie (not that I would lie to God) to cover my tracks.
*And lastly do you really think it's hard for me?  Goodness gracious I have people in my family that are blocked on Facebook & I don't even have on my cell phone contact list because I don't like or want the feelings that they dredge up.

That said......I hope everyone takes a few minutes to pray about the relationships with the people in your life.

Dog Treats

Have you ever heard of Dog Treat  You really must go there and check out some of the GREAT recipes they have!!  Hoss LOVES most of the goodies that come from there.  And they are super duper easy to make to!!!

                      Like the  Turkey & Stuffing Dog Biscuit

Or the Carrot Cake Dog Cupcakes that we are gonna try next week when he gets to feelin 100%.

Poor little guy.  He's got it soooooooooooo ruff this past week.  Between getting "sandwiches" every morning of meat & cheese (and his medicine in between that he doesn't see....Mom is so sneaky) and getting extra loves and rides in the car.....once he does get back to 100% he is gonna be even more spoiled than he already is!!!!!

I've got ESP(N)

In order for me to tell you how excited I am that I have ESP(N) I must first give you alittle bit of back story........One of the ladies at work had to take her boyfriend this morning to the doctor in hopes that he has lost a bunch of fluid he had on his heart, lungs & liver etc etc.  (And I know how all that feels it's a very scary feeling). IF he hadn't lost atleast 10 pounds of fluid he was going to have to be put in the hospital. The appointment was at like 8AM this morning with the doctor.

SO one of the other ladies at work says......Oh I wonder how **** is & what the doctor said.  (Note it's 10:15 AM) I said He is fine, lost a bunch of the fluid & doesn't have to go to the hospital.  The sometimes blonde lady in our office says......Oh did you call **** is that how you know??? I just kinda looked at her and said No I've got ESP(N) that's how I knew.  She seriously looked at me with this blank look on her face.  And said Oh OK!!!! (Note this is coming from the same lady that put her frozen chicken in the oven to cook & left the neck, gizzards etc IN IT......and then couldn't understand why 2 hours later it wasn't done!!!!) I really just wanted to look at her & say Here is your sign, then turn & walk away.....but I figured that would throw her for a HUGE loop!!!!!!

Really I promise I DON'T MAKE THESE THINGS UP!!!!!!  If you were a fly on the wall in this office you seriously would understand why sometimes I'm alittle off my rocker!!!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!!  It was a GLORIOUS morning this & Hoss both got 4-5 STRAIGHT hours of sleep.  He is on the mend & feeling lots better.  Just very tired right now.  And who can blame him.......he was one sick little boy.  So we are kinda just letting him hang out & relax today!!!

Here is our menu plan for the week....

Monday (I know I'm late sorry!).....We had leftovers
Tuesday.....Pork Roast in the crockpot w/carrots & onions, Greenbeans & fruit
Wednesday.....BBQ Sandwiches from the leftover pork roast
Thursday....chicken helper
Friday.....baked ziti & salad
Saturday....Ham, scalloped taters & salad
Sunday...Sausage Dogs, Coleslaw & FF

My goal this week is to TRY to not go out to eat.  Usually we go out on Wednesday nights or Friday nights.  But I'm hoping & working on a plan for us to only go out every other week.  I'm also working on the next 2 weeks cleaning out the freezers.  I seriously sometimes forget what I've put in the freezers & that's a BAD BAD thing.  So it's clean out time.......and then of course comes restock time LOL!!!!

Appointment Update

Well after $200 & 45 minutes in the vets office they said they have no idea what's wrong with Hosser.  I mentioned that he had been around some people who had the crud & could that be it.....he said it was unlikely but possibly.  Gave him a shot of something I can't remember cuz the word was HUGE & then an antibotic for us to give him for the next few days.  And guess what the little nerd came home & ate some munchies with Daddy & played outside.  I swear he's a goof ball!!!  

Sooooo while he's muchin & gettin better.....Mommy is on a cleaning spree.  So I'm off to get to cleaning again.  Ohhhhh and I have a VERY cool idea for breakfast in the am.  Wait til you see it!!!!! YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!!!!!!

Doctors Appointment

Well Hosser isn't doing any better just like all you mommies with kids, the doctor's appointment has been made. And I'll be leaving work early to take my poor pitiful sick child to the doctor this afternoon.  He's home with Daddy today & isn't drinking or eating anything.  And Daddy is kinda freakin out.  Not MAJOR freakin but that pit of the stomach ohhhh Mommy come home & take care of things freakin.  So to add to a wonderful Monday I'll be spending time at the doctors office this afternoon.  YIPPIE!!!!!! 

And ya want to know what is even worse....this would have been the first week in awhile that I DIDN'T have to spend ANY time in the doctors office.  LOL....guess I'll have to shoot for next week being a doctor free week!!!!!

It's the weekend...

We didn't do much this weekend.  Poor Hosser isn't feeling good!!!  He got sick Friday night & decided to let me have a total of ohhhhhh 2 hours sleep.  After cleaning up his puke all night long we moved onto having the runs...which is always fun.  (sorry probably more info than what you wanted to know) Now it's Sunday night & we are working on forcing him to drink Pedilite, still have the runs & lack of eating.  We went out for a ride tonight...hoping that'll make him feel alittle better but didn't work.  He was happy as a lark when we were out riding & seeing the uncles....but now we are back to being blah!!! 

I on the other hand didn't get to lay around to much.  One of the ladies in our church had a baby shower so I made this AWESOME diaper cake.  I added a Scentsy Buddy to the top of the cake.  I think it's probably one of the cutest I've made in awhile!!!! If I must say so myself LOL!!!


And I'm thinking this precious mommy is gonna enjoy it!!!!  Aint she too cute......

Phone Randomness

So I'm going thru my phone this morning & found some random pictures.  SOMEONE was pouting in this first picture.  He got mad at me cuz I was TRYING to fold laundry & couldn't play with him at that VERY minute!!!

This was taken I think the first nice warm sunshine weekend we had had in ohhhhhh about 3 weeks!!!

This next bunch was taken at the Biltmore House VERY early in the morning.........we were there I think at 8:15!!!!

Note the half frozen over pond.........

And note one 4 legged animal stinking his head in half frozen over pond trying to get something to drink......this one was snapped only seconds before said animal FEEL INTO half frozen over pond!!!!

Full Moon!!!

It's a full moon outside I SWEAR!!!!  I've been out walking Hoss the past 2 nights (late at night when I probably shouldn't be) and I've seen it!!!!

PLUS today at work has proved how much of a full moon it is.  I have talked to the following people today.....2 people that have had loved ones pass away, 1 person getting a divorce, 2 people that are mad at the world & ready to sue EVERYONE, a crazy woman that I think is off her meds, 2 people that are disabled & don't have any money, 1 person that is 3 months behind on bills & can't get caught up, 1 person that yelled at me cuz I asked her how much of her house was rock & how much was siding, 1 man who told me you know that John guy hit me that has a blue car (like I only know one John guy LOL) & now have a customer yelling at me cuz he thought I took a 3 hour lunch.  And come to find out our receiptionist forgot to tell me he called at 1:15 (while I was at lunch) and now it's 4:05 and he has had to call me back.  And he wanted to come see me at 8:30 tomorrow morning & because I'm just now getting to talk to him I already have an appointment in the am & won't be at work til after 9. 

Let's just hope my after 5:00 people I talk to aren't as bothered by the full moon as my 8:30-5:00 people have been!!!!!

On a postive note.....Hoss gets to go with us tonight to pick up our taxes and meet a guy up at the church to price putting in an oil tank.  DH says he'll destroy the car while we are in getting our taxes.........I say ohhhhh don't worry he waits on me all the time when I go into the craft store & he is a perfect gentleman......let's see who is right!!!!  I'm thinking we need to place a friendly wager on looser buys breakfast tomorrow morning!!!!!!!!! 

Stay tuned...............................

My Valentines....

These are my Valentines.  Both of them looking like they are up to no good!!! LOL!!!

My DH has been part of my life for almost 21 years!!!  Good golly that's a long time!!  And because he is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME & knows me SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO well he knows that the best way to my heart on Valentines Day or any day of the year for that matter is to get me cheesecake.  And again this year he came thru..........

These cheesecakes are from an AWESOME place a couple of miles down the road from us.  There is Red Velvet, Chunky Monkey, Carmel Candy, Chocolate Chip and New York Style.  See who could not LOVE someone who would bring these yummies to work for you!!!!!!!

BUT.....WE AREN'T DONE!!!!!!!!!!!

On top of these yummy cheesecakes I got lunch from one of the local BBQ places...........

Yeah that's Cucumber Salad, Smoked Tater Salad & Beef Brisket.  And it was WAY good!!!!!!!

And then I got my new bag......

DH didn't actually get this for me.....well kinda he did.  I got it for myself from my friend Autumn......we'll say Hoss got it for me!!!  Just cuz he is a good child like that!!!!!!

A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control. (Proverbs 28:11)

This is my work scripture for the week.  Due to LOTS of craziness that is going on at my job I'm learning really fast to let things roll off my back.  Kinda like water does on a ducks back.  A good friend of mine reminded me a few months back that we both needed to be more like ducks.  And I'm working on that EVERYDAY!!!!!

We need

So Hosser needs an outside jacket.........cuz he's like his mama & isn't a fan of the cold.  I'm thought this one would be perfect
But then I saw this very cool sweatshirt & I'm thinking dang he needs that too.......

And then I saw that the website had dog couches & I'm thinking yep maybe just maybe if I get him one of those bad boys he won't take up my whole couch & leave me no where to be lazy at...........

And then I decided that I need a 3rd job just to pay for it all & figured it best to stop window shopping for my dog & get back to work!!! LOL!!!!!!

Ham Broccoli Casserole

So this yummyfied meal WAS probably one of my best last week.

All I did was fry up a ham steak & cut it in cubes
Sautee 2 boxes of frozen broccoli & onions
Cook 1 package of egg noodles
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cheddar cheese

Mixed everything together bake @ 350 for about 20 mins then top with shredded cheddar cheese, bake another 10 mins or so & you are done!!!
It was that easy!!!  And all that was left was 1 helping for lunch the next day!!!!!!!!  I think next time I make it I'll make 2 up and freeze one!!!  Ohhhh thats a brillant idea!!!!!

Valentines Day

Valentines Day is next Monday......can you believe it????  And I've figured out what I want for Valentines Day this year.  After the night I've had it wasn't very hard to figure it out!!!!  Are you ready here is what I want................
*Dinner ready & on the table when I get home & for me to not have to decide what it's gonna be.
*The kitchen cleaned up for me.
*Hoss wore out for me so I don't have to walk him 3 times in between everything else I have to do.
*The laundry done.
*And last but not get to sit on my butt all night & not to have to do a thing!!!!!

Seriously I doubt I'll get any of this for Valentines Day but a girl can dream can't she!!!!!!!


Ya know how your mom always said....don't go outside with a wet'll catch a cold.  Seriously I have NO IDEA if that really can happen.....but ever since I had to have a funeral for my hair dryer about 2 weeks ago I have went outside with a wet head in some nasty cold weather.....and guess what I have a terrible cold.  Sniffles, cough, sneezes, aches, scratchy throat......I sound like a Nyquil commercial!!!!!

So since I'm very Yucky feeling today & have been for the past 3 days I'm asking Hoss to PLEASE let mommy & daddy get some sleep tonight.  2 hours of sleep then up for 30-45 mins is just not cutting it.  Ohhhhh and anyone who would like some excerise is more than welcome to come take him for a walk or run cuz I can't & that's why the little stinker isn't letting us sleep!!!!  But trust me you'd bring him back shortly!!! LOL!!

Ranchero Beans

Land sakes have mercy I can't believe that in my recipes that I've given I haven't listed Ranchero Beans!!!!!  Seriously they ROCK!!!  And are super super easy!!!  Go ahead & easy (I know you want to!!!! LOL), easy enough that my DH had them all ready in 15 mins when he got home last night so all I had to do was make the cornbread!!!!! =)

All you need (and this is all dependent on how much you want to make) is.....

2 cans of Baked Beans
2 cans of kidney beans drained
1 can of navy beans drained
1 can of great northern beans
1 pound of hamburger (cooked & drained)
chopped onion & green pepper to taste
1/2 cup of brown sugar (or more if you like it sweeter)

We usually cook to a very low boil for about 10 mins or so.  Sometimes I put it in the crockpot & let it cook on LOW for about 4 hours......that way is so good it'll make your tongue slap your brains out!!!!! =)

Fitting In

As I'm blog hoppin this afternoon I found a few different posts that asked the same question......Are we trying to please God or the world???   And of course that got my head to spinning.  Thinking about the happenings in my life over the last few days & questions that have been spinning in my head. 

Have I this week tried to please the world by really caring IF so & so at work hasn't spoken to me today?  Or if I sit in my office & NO ONE can talk to me all day?  Or how certain people have mentioned hateful things about me & my life when I'm within hearing distance? 

I would LOVE to tell you nope,  haven't thought twice about any of it......but that would be telling a HUGE white lie!!! 
But I can tell you one thing that I have made sure & done through out this week and that's spend some time on my knees praying to my God asking him to send me in the direction I need to be in & to give me strength to deal with the CRAZY people in my life!!!  And I'm very thankful that God has a sense of humor cuz that's exactly what I call them CRAZY people LOL!!!!!

If I'm trying to please God then I shouldn't be concerned about what those CRAZY people think of me!!!  And it's Satan that keeps putting those CRAZY thoughts in my head!!!  And you know it's cuz I have been spending time in prayer & reading my Bible EVERY DAY that Satan is working his hardest to get me back.......but he can't have me!!!!!  And to him I officially say Blah......stay away!!!!  I HAVE chosen to   stand tall, to walk with my Lord & Savior and not be part of this craziness of fitting in & worrying about what others think!!!!  That's what the "world" calls fitting in not what my Lord calls fitting in. 

I like how the NIV phrases John 15:19

"If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you."

So keep on hating me world....that's fine with me cuz I'm fitting in with the Lord.  The One who loves me for all my CRAZiness and corky ways, The One who has made me into the person that I am today & forgives me everyday for all my shortcomings & mess ups.  The One who has given me this wonderful life that I have & to Him I give ALL of the glory!!!!

Goodie Bags

I made up some great little goodie bags to take to local groups of ladies the other day!!!!  This group of bags had Scentsy goodies in it, Thirty-One goodies in it & 2 cards from a wonderful lady here in town that does AWESOME massages and a VERY VERY talented author. 

                   Make sure you check out Lola Ladybug!!!!

My hope with these goodie bags is to give alittle smile to local women in the area while also helping out business women at the same time.

I hope they go over well.  I go this weekend & pick up some more goodies for different bags I need to make & need to call on 2 more church groups!!!


Here is our menu for the week.  Hope you get some ideas from it....

Monday...we had a banquet to go to
Tuesday...Ranchero Beans & Cornbread
Wednesday...pick up night
Thursday...Cheesy Beef Taco
Friday....Ham, Broccoli & cheese casserole
Saturday...Roast in the crockpot
Sunday....Chicken Pot Pie

Getting Older??

Call it getting older.  Call it getting wiser.  Call it whatever you would like.  I'm calling it growing closer to my Lord, but I am to a point in my life where I need just a few things.

I need my Friend & Lord, I need my WONDERFUL DH, I need quietness, and I need the opportunity everyday to thank my Lord for the wonderful things He has given me that I don't deserve!!!
