Posting for real this time

I posted on my other blog today (there is a link to it on my Favorite links section).
I ranted for a little while.....I'm feeling better now. I just need to spend time in prayer over it.
.
.
My Neck and back are kinda out of whack right now, so I'm kind of moving a little SLOW!
The Chiropractor did a lot of adjustments and it felt better, but I still am not quite there yet!
P.M.S. is not helping matters.;-0! Oh, did I tell you guys that I finally have an appointment for June 20th. I hope it's nothing serious (I've been having "woman issues"). Sometimes I feel "lumps" that hurt where my ovaries are, I don't know for sure if it is my ovaries, but it's in that general region. Do you all have any ideas? I have spotting occasionally, pain, and moodiness. Oh, well, the life of a woman. they'll probably say "It's NORMAL"....argggggg! ;-)
.
.
The kids are watching Jetsons, Dusty is taking a nap, and I'm ...do I have to say what I'M doing? No...I didn't think so!
.
Money has been a little tight lately, I think I'm going to go back to making a menu and do my grocery shopping off that list. I always spend less when I do it that way. It also seems to help with preparing a meal too. I get very undecided on what I want to fix, but with a menu I know what I have on hand and what I can make. It allows us more variety and less quick trips to the store ;-). The final result...LESS money spent and weeks of planned meals. I also like meals in the slow cooker and I have also bought from Angel food ministries. Both are great. What are some things that y'all have learned to do? Can you share? I love swapping ideas....It's fun!
.
.
Any ideas on saving money for Jess' school work this year? I want to earn extra money for that and paying a debt off. What do you all suggest?
.
.
I am very excited about Amanda visiting with me this week. I have a feeling that she's going to wear me out! ;-) I'm going to get caught up on rest so that I'll be prepared for her. I am really looking forward to some "girl time". When Jess was here it was great. we had so much fun, but NOT near enough time together.
If you all keep coming to see us then we'll have no need to visit y'all at family camp.......just kidding. We are really hoping and wanting to go the whole week next year. The kids will be old enough to sit during the meetings and I shouldn't need any strollers...yeah! Pray with us and I'm sure God will work it out.
Love you all and Happy nap times!

.

Oh, I forgot Jess mentioned that I should write a little thing about one of our discussions we had this week>
"You know that your a young Parent when....."
.
1. You fight over the last quarter to see who gets the gum out of the gumball machine!
.
2. You hide the "special" candy.
.
3. You want a turn playing with their new TOY.
.
4. You have to allot time for the gameboy, so that your husband can have a turn.
.
5. You pick names to see who gets the toy out of the ceral box.
.
6. You would NEVER think to wake up your kids because your happy to get a chance to sleep in too.
.
To Be Continued.......

Hey Rachel,
Good to read your new update. It has nothing to do with your post, but I just read on another blog about a little 8 year old girl who just lost her fight with neuroblastoma in Kansas. Please pray for her parents-they are Christians and little Marielle is in Heaven. But it does tug at my heartstrings, I can't believe we still have little Heidi. Cherish everyday with your children-they are but fleeting.
Good grief-I guess I need to get my own blog. That's one reason why I haven't-I'd be addicted.
Good night,
Phallin

I do hope you find out what is going on with your "woman problems" had some of mine own earlier this month, and am just watching it now.
On the planning the meal parts... you'll get a kick out of this one, noah does alot of that and then I just cook it all up! Never heard of Angel food min. though??
If you find something to earn alittle more $$ while at home..let me know!! I'd love to do that also, and I'll keep an eye out also on my end!

hey rach!
Phallin gave me your site. I know I've asked you at church, but I forget by the time I'm home. Also I've asked mom & she keeps forgetting. Well, no matter, I'm HERE!!! You are such a funny writer! I will be scanning the archives for a few days. It's fun to read your life,
I'm praying for your health issues.
Love, Mel

Okay, I guess I should have refreshed or something, because when I pulled up your blog at your house, I never saw this latest post.... And I've been forgetting all about the other blog, so just now read all that one too. Whew - I had some catchup to do.

Anyway, since we've pretty much thoroughly discussed all these issues in person, I won't do it on here. But, I do want to thank you SO MUCH for having me at your house. The girls and I had a great time and I'd do it all over again anytime! I do need to call you again already, I have a few issues that arose the very day I got home - nothing serious I hope. But anywho - I'm sure we'll be talking again soon. When I called and talked to Jay last night, I told him he better not put you on cuz I didn't have that much time...hahaha! He probably already told you that.

Well, gotta get back to work (at the church) - lots to do...OH! By the way, the girls both had fevers this morning and slept until 11:00am! I slept til 10am - what a blessing! I was exhausted.
~Love ya lots!~
