Random stuff and a couple of pics

So some of you live close to me and know a little bit of what has happened in my life but some of you have no clue so I thought I would fill you in on a couple of changes that have happened in our lives.

First of all, we have moved to Oklahoma for a little while. Chris is traveling so much with work that we, me and the kids, decided to move to Oklahoma to help out Jeannie. Since I have no job and really no job prospects for awhile I am here so she can work and have a vehicle until she can afford to get one. We have all four kids living in the house and I am the stay-at-home mom that I always thought I wanted to be. I am a little bored really. It is amazing how fast I get the house work done when the kids are gone and I do it everyday. But, despite my silly complaining I am happy. I am happy I can be here for all the kids when they leave for school and when they get home. I do enjoy the role I am playing here. I feel a little guilty because I am not a wife really to Chris except on the weekends, but in reality he wouldn't be home for me to be a wife anyway. He is in Atlanta today, and leaves on Sunday for New York, Newark, and Chicago.

I have decided to only do the freelance writing stuff because the online tutoring just didn't work out with the changes we have made. Too many responsibilities with the four kids and I now keep two more in the afternoons.

Kids are both going to school. Emily is in a head start program for pre-k that she is LOVING! She gets to ride a school bus there and home and really loves the independence. I guess she is just like her momma. Except I HATED riding the bus. Ben is really loving kindergarten here in Roff. He gets to spend his afternoons with Brighton, his new best pal. I love watching the boys play and listening to them.

I am at home all day and this is what I have wanted for a very long time, but I will tell you be careful what you wish for. :) I love it but I have to start sewing again because if I don't I am going to go a little nuts I think. I have learned how to crochet I just need to learn how to read a pattern, I have been doing some cross stitch, and I have read two books. Lots of praying and trying to hear God's will. So this is my window right now. I am trying to rest in Him. This is where He has lead me for right now. I will let you know when I start doing the freelance because it is an online thing and you can head over there and be a reader, if you are so inclined.

Here are a couple of gratuitous pics of the dog. He is a worthless, lazy thing, but he sure is cute! :)

Wow! A lot has happened here. I have been in and out of the bloggy world for a few months now. I am glad you are happy being a SAHM. I love it!!

Hugs!!! I don't like dogs but he is a cute puppy!!!

I love being home! I worked so hard, for so long that being home is so relaxing and wonderful!!! No more rat race! No more going out early in all kinds of weather! Plus stamping whenever I want to, lol!

Sounds like you are in a transitional phase before the next big thing!

I'm one of those people that knows nothing about you, but what I've read tells me that you are an amazing person. Sometimes it takes an almost unrealistic amount of strength to get through the things you're going through now. Resting in god, will always give you some level of comfort, but also realize there are friends who can also help carry a weight : ).

This is ridiculous of me, but would you mind listening to my music? I hope you it grabs you.
