I, honestly, never know when it is cold in the house - yes, I have a problem. But, after multiple complaints this morning, I agreed to turn on the heat...briefly

Shooting Range Dates

I love to go shooting and I love to go on dates, so going to the range is fun for me.

Jason has been working many late nights and six day weeks, so I miss him. I am super busy with work and the kids and life is going by very quickly.

Today, we had a few hours where the kids were at school and we each had a few hours, we went to the range.
Of course, we tried to go to lunch too, but the school called us and we needed to come pick up a sick kid.

Back to reality.

My Purse

I like order, but my purse is always one chaotic mess that is constantly overflowing with...whatever - meds, checkbook, banana, glasses, snacks, phone, keys, chapstick, veggie straws, extra contacts, nail polish, coupons, hair ties, etc.

Eye Troubles

I've got some eye troubles, that I won't get into all the details of here, but they are a little scary. I am trying not to dwell on them since the frustrating outcome could be in six months, two years, or ten years.
With my struggles, I've found it easier to focus on my computer at work with reading glasses that are just slightly strong. It forces my eyes to stay focused, not necessarily needed for seeing - if that makes any sense.

The prescription is so slight, they are a little harder to find. Typically reading glasses start at +1.25, but I only need +1.00. Found some today at Walmart for cheap, so I bought a purple pair, a blue pair, and a red pair. Why not?

Mom Tip - Facebook Post

Speaking love languages, and benefitting from it. Taught Mollee (who is a little OCD and loves creating order and smoothness) to iron placemats, uniforms, and Daddy's shirts, something I never have time to do. I have Capps hanging out with me while I clean, he loves to be with me and is very helpful on small tasks. Daegan is in the backyard burning old bills and checks that need shredding -'s fire! And my two ADD boys - sent them out into the neighborhood to play because they are pretty sure sitting in school five days a week is torture and they need to "be free".

Productive Saturday!!!

Back to California

I am beyond sad to say that our new Senior Pastor has resigned and is taking his family back to California. It has been a shock and caused much sadness within the church body, but we all know the Lord has a plan.

They are leaving on Monday, but we were happy to go on one more double date Thursday night, go to a good-bye appetizer party with just a few friends on Friday, and then really say goodbye on Saturday when they stopped by to drop off some of our belongings.

The amount of tears that have been shed can't even been counted.
Working with Jesse has been a major blessing for me. I've learned a lot, he has made some stressful situations not so stressful, and he has made day-to-day office life actually fun. I've enjoyed my time with Lenny as well, along with the kids who have made good relationships with their boys.

Damn, I am gonna miss them.
