Is it almost Monday already?

So another weekend has basically came and gone.   The house is still messy and I have a stomach bug.  I feel like crap and still have put on 3 pounds...   Its all those crackers.  boo.  (oh and maybe that bang bang shrimp at 9 pm the other night......) So I will be visiting my treadmill in the early morning.   I have been recording TV shows that I either just never get to watch or that I fall asleep during.  I am making a promise/deal with self right now that I can only watch those movies/shows on the treadmill.  I may go to Zumba a few times this week.    I sure do miss it and it burns about 400 calories on me a session.  

We went Friday night for a painting class and both of us ended up loving it.  It felt really good to be that expressive and have something pretty to take home.   We will definitely go back.

Ha!!  That sounds so funny!  We actually did have a good trip yesterday.  Couponing at our finest.  I do have to compliment my husband because the Walmart portion of the trip was his planning.  The total on all products was a whopping $180.00,  we paid taxes and all , drum roll......$25.00.   How awesome?

When I Grow Up....

Do you ever wonder if you are where you are supposed to be?  I am in a two day seminar and when I am in these along with being in Church, a fire ignites inside of my very being and I just want to speak.  I want to speak and I want to share.  I want to pace, get loud,  and be funny.  I want to see emotional impact.  I want to reference all the great things I have read, along with all the Bible verses that rock your soul.   I want to inspire, I want to be great, do great,  I really want to touch lives.  Is it still okay to day dream what you want to be when you grow up? A columnist? Guest Speaker? Motivational Speaker? A journalist? An Author of some renowned book? Do a show? A DVD? A movie??

Do we ever really arrive in life?  Or is it all just one journey?

In Butter's World

In Butter's world,  the food bowl is always full and her cup floweth with everlasting  waters......  What, am I the only devoted cat owner that turns the faucet on every time she jumps up there and talks sweet kitty talk? I like to pretend that she has some rare kitty deficiency in which she has to have water straight from the tap or she will not survive.  But, just so we are straight it has nothing to do with cleanliness, because freshly flushed toilet water works just as well.  I thought once the kids were big enough that I would be able to use the restroom alone.. I was wrong.  Butter is there waiting for the flush and if I shut the door then the fuzzy butted one thinks she is cut off from all human contact and swats my toes from under the door and meows as if she is on her death bed...a slow agonizing death from a broken heart because she was abandoned for more than two minutes.   Though I have to be careful to let her in, she has a personal vendetta with any and all paper products.  It started young.
My post today started about how Butter and Itty B's food bowl is always full.  They have a fuzzy little cat house to play and sleep on.. the fuzzy butted slips in a night or two piled up with me in the bed.  I just wanted to reflect that its how I feel about God sometimes.  He always fills our hearts and gives us plush alters to come visit him on.  We just take it all for granted sometimes.  I know I do.  This comes a little from my 31st bday being yesterday and a bible verse I found today.    God sneaks them in on me and when he sends them to my inbox in various ways, I listen.  Getting an email from the Boss is serious enough in itself, but when the email comes from Jesus....  lol, you have my undivided attention.   I said today that I welcomed my thirties because I had tons to do and nothing to prove.  So please join me my friends  on my journey to forty and be apart of all the blessings along the way.  

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Lets Start a Blog, Take 2

Wow, so many moons have passed and I have failed to touch my blog.  Boo.  I'm a slacker, but life trudges on.  First off,  A moment of silence for 9/ll.     I wanted to put that out there.  I'll be back soon to catch up.

Lots of love,  MJ
