Update on regular life

Well, I don't have any funny stories to share or visiting celebrity friends so I figured I would just give the 411 on life these days. Hunter coached basketball this year. Its been 2 years since he last coached. Of course, you all know I love basketball so I didn't mind going to the games. But this year I really enjoyed watching more than the other years. I don't know any of the kids so I didn't have any attachment. Maybe I was bored. Anyway, the season is now over and we have a lot of free time.
I am extremely busy at work. I have adopted a new philosiphy at work, "Don't work for the promotion, just work and the promotions will come." I am not out for some hard core career but I found myself working to be praised or patted on the back. I wasn't working because that is what I am there to do. Since I have changed my thinking, I have experienced a lot less pressure I place on myself at work. And its seems I am getting a ton of stuff done. Interesting.
Also on a career note, I am speaking at Hunter's school's career day on Thursday. Ha! All of you should laugh at this because well, you know me. I am going to promote my profession to high school students. Wow. Also, I am 10 years older than these kids. I have never thought of my self as old but around high school kids, at 26, you are old to them.
I have attempted a budget on paper to hopefully be debt free, with exception to our house. I am definitely trying to act on my confession of materialism. The budget begins March 1st. It will be hard but not impossible. We will see.
Nothing more is going on. I am totally digging the weather. I am totally digging all the blessings from God- friends, family, weather, laughter and everything in between. Lets see if I can leave with a good blessing.........May you have the energy to complete your laundry (including putting it up), an excuse to ride with your windows down tomorrow with your best song on the radio and the luck or skill to cook a dinner that tastes like your mom made it. Rock out.

Hail to the Chief.......

Thats right, my friend G. W. came to town today. All downtown stood still for a couple of hours this afternoon. I didn't get to see the motorcade but I did see several pictures that other people took. I don't care how old he is, I still think he is a cutie. Word up George.

Shout Out!

I just want to say how thankful I am for my God! Just to be able to lay any concern at His feet is a comfort to me right now. So many hurts happen in life and God is the ultimate comfort to my soul. This brings me to a verse that is very much on my mind these days...."Do not be anxious about anything, but in EVERYTHING (my emphasis), by prayer and petition, present your requests to God. For the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 I hope I quoted the verse right. Sorry if I didn't but I think the idea is there. WOO HOO!

Yeah for the snow!




Hunter didn't have school today and I had a one hour delay at work. Can you believe it, work gives one hour delays. There was hardly anyone there. The snow was very pretty and the best kind. Here when you woke up, delayed work and melted by the end of the day. Yeah for the snow!
