Once again...

Well, I can't complain too much. He hasn't traveled too much lately' maybe that's the reason why it's even harder this time. But it is hard, difficult, whatever you want to call it. Yes, I'll be honest; the three glasses of Shiraz doesn't help, (but they were good!!) But I do miss him. That wonderful man I call my husband. He left yesterday to go to a business meeting, and he'll be home tomorrow early afternoon, but, I still miss him. Two nights in my house by myself, (well, my wonderful dog and I). But it's ok. I got a lot accomplished today: food shopping, job hunting, house painting, dog walking... the lit goes on. Oh the joys of being a house wife!!!

Not much has been going on lately, but we have much coming up soon! This weekend, hopefully we can spend some time here in our house, then the next week we are heading back to NJ for a work picnic and a family reunion, the home, then the following weekend, back to NJ for my brother and sister-in-law's engagement party, then home for a little bit and off to Louisville, KY, then home, then .... maybe... some time to relax at home...

So I guess you can say we are pretty busy this upcoming month, but nothing too exciting or out of the ordinary. 83 days left until we leave for our vacay in Hawaii. I cannot wait for that vacation since it's been 2 years since our last vacation where it was just the two of us!!!

I've been pretty busy painting the house. Which it's a good thing I'm not working, since my husband refuses to paint. It's been going well, expect for the fact that I am beginning to hate painting...

Well, I suppose that's all I have to ramble about for now. Hopefully one day I'll have a fantastic story to share wit you... but for now, we'll have to settle with my boring everyday... life...good night all!

So.. Yes, I'm back

Well, for now... Last week was crazy we were on vacation with minimal internet access, then headed out to a wedding. Then after we finally came home, I began to clean and straighten up thing around the house, then yesterday painted our fireplace wall a nice calming shade of blue, so I've been pretty busy. Nothing too new has been going on.

Our vacation was very nice. We spent some time at the beach house in NJ which was very nice and we had excellent weather all week long! It was wonderful. The wedding we went to was one of my best friends from college! She was absolutely stunning!

My fireplace wall is driving me crazy because you can see the paint roller lines, no matter what I do. And today I just put on the second coat, and it looks even worse then yesterday. Does anyone have any advice? I've tried the "W" and the "N" method .... neither of them worked... I'm just about ready to hire someone to do it. All well.

Here is a picture from the wedding!!

So Completly Random!

So, I have this game that I LOVE! It's called Mancala and its a board with six ups on either side and the point of the game is to get the most gems in you larger scoring cup to the right of you, and each cup includes four gems, so all together there are 24 gems. which if you really knew me, you would wonder how after owning this game for ten plus years, how in the world I've only managed to lose one of those 24 gems. I lost it about 9 years ago... haha! and so I replaced it with a fairly large piece of sea glass I had, (which all who have played my game have come to realized that it is highly annoying!). Soooo, after moving to college and moving out of my mom's house into my in-laws before my husband and I got married, and then moving into his place, then last year moving to our place now, I still have not managed to lose anymore gems! However, I did assume that through all the moving, the gem was lost forever. BUT, my AMAZING husband that he is, went downstairs and rummaged through one of the boxes in the basement that we still have yet to unpack, (even after being here for over a year), looking for something, (that had absolutely nothing to do with my beloved game), and low and behold, he walked up the stairs with this beautiful shiny missing gem!!!! After all of our moves and being lost for eight years, the gem has finally been found and reunited with it's friends!! And yes, this story does remind me about the lost sheep story that Jesus tells us in Luke chapter 15. It's a little different, but it does remind me, no matter how long you may be lost for, God is always there and will find you! And it just reminded me of the particular verse "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?", Luke 15:4. Now I know I gave up on finding my gem and though I had forgotten about it and gave up on it, (even though it was later found) it just made me remember that no matter what, Jesus will NEVER give up on finding you!
