And just when I thought

Well, I thought the most important prayer worthy news of the day would be that the buyer backed out on buying our house. Boy was I wrong! I found out that a dear friend of mine's husband (who is also very dear to me) had surgery today. Please pray for Rick. Alice and Rick mean so much to me and to my family. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am that God has allowed our lives to intermingle.

Then, I come home and through another blog, I learn about a woman, diagnosed with breast cancer, a new mother (just came home from the hospital with her baby girl), passed away. Please say a prayer for this family. I cannot imagine what this family is going through and what this baby girl's life will be like without her mother. Oh, how I love my children. Please, LORD, never let me take it for granted. . . Please let me be your instrument to teach my children about you. Please allow me to see my children accept YOU and to follow YOU. Give them a heart to know you, LORD.

It's amazing how God has humbled me through this day. I am so caught up with ME that I forget that it's not about ME. It's about Him. I am sorry. I am sorry to my wonderful Savior that loves me despite my faults. I am sorry to my friends that need my prayers more than me. I am sorry that there are so many families suffering and in pain while I am concerned about selling my house. I cannot imagine how any of you still want to befriend me after seeing this selfishness in me. To those of you that have needed me-- I am here, and I am sorry. . .

A tummy ache healed from shopping?

Kate has been complaining of a tummy ache off and on for about three weeks now, mostly when I am at work, rarely, when I am home. So today I had decided maybe I should take her to the doctor, but when she told me that a trip to the galleria (instead of going to Mother's Day Out) would heal her tummy, I decided that maybe a doctor visit was not in the plans for the day.
We arrived at the galleria at 0930. Did you know that the galleria doesn't even open til 10am?

Well, I have never had a desire to pop in at 0930, so I had no idea. We walked around and looked in the windows until the stores started to open their doors. Then, we shopped. Then, we shopped some more until next thing you know it was lunch time. Will met us for lunch and then we shopped some more. Kate loved the lego store! She begged for lego's, but we bought NONE! I cannot believe I didn't give in to her. . . But, then Will found out from his mom that she still has his old lego's from when he was a kid in her attic! So, Kate will get already paid for Lego's! Even better.

Tomorrow is the day that we should hear back from the guy who has a contract on our house. He sent the home inspector out this past Monday (the day it flooded), and he said he would review all of the things that the inspector found and get back with us Friday. So, once again, I am nervous. I still feel like this is the move God is telling us to make for our family. I just continue to be nervous that things won't just "fall in to place". But at the same time, I am warmed up to the idea of living in Denver and being with my family and I am ready to get the show on the road. . . Cause that is exactly what it will be with two kids on a 22 hour drive. A show. I should probably contact TLC or NBC to see if they want to do a reality show or a documentary.

Clinicals are almost over. I have about 60 hours left and then I am done with clinicals! Yay! Then, I just have to get through all of my tests, graduate, and pass boards. . . stress. . .

Well, I am glad that a little shopping did Kate's tummy some good. Hopefully, she will feel better once her mommy is not gone all the stinkin' time!

Where have I been

Well, I have been on sabbatical from publishing blogs. Okay, really I have been working and doing clinicals nonstop for weeks on end now. As a matter of fact, I am at clinical right now (missing my family) at 1207am blogging. The alarms are dinging, the babies are screaming (well, the ones that aren't intubated), and people keep walking by my door talking very loudly.

My goal is to make it through the next few weeks/months and by the first of the year, I should be blogging consistently. Consistently from a new location. Denver. Colorado. That's right. You heard me correctly. We are loading up and heading out west! As soon as the house sells. So, before I go into great detail. Here's a link to my house. Check it out. Let me know what you think and PLEASE spread the word. I want it sold, so I can start looking for a new home =)

Why does copy and paste not work

Okay, so I have a few blogs that I wanted to post. Normally, I type them in word and then copy and paste over to blogger. This hasn't worked in weeks. Anyone know why?

Guess what I am eating and how much I weigh

Okay, so it is official. I eat when I am stressed. I eat BAD foods when I am stressed. I cannot control myself. I have no self control when I am eating. Here's what I mean: This is what I had to eat tonight for my after dinner/ before bed snack:
Any guess as to what it is? You would probably be totally appalled at the lack of nutritional value and the flavor combination. I keep saying that I will eat healthier when I am finished with school. I don't think my health can wait that long. I stepped on some scales today at work to see my weight. Any guess how much I weighed?

So now I have the obligation to myself (after I finish this bowl of) to alter my UNhealthy lifestyle.

If anyone knows how to add more hours to a day or more days to a week-- that would be great. Just let me know.
