I think I'll skip painting today and work on preschool plans. Along laundry, sweeping, dishes, the routine of life. We did get a good little storm here last night.......but it is so muggy today. YUCK!
Well, hope everyone has a terrific week. I'm hoping that when I am off next week I can actually do some scrapbooking. I haven't been able to do any in WEEKS!! And I have two new cartridges to play with! Lord, the day needs to come and soon.........

Okay, as some of you may notice, I have made a few changes to the blog. I added a few more links. Yes, they are political......not something that I am usually into, but this one really has my interest. I've been watching a lot of political debates, reading up on issues, etc. and to be honest, there is no perfect person to run this country except for God Himself (and they are doing their best to take Him out of everything!). We are the minority anymore.......especially those of us who are Christians. I have done a lot of reading on Gov. Mike Huckabee......he's been on the second tier of the Republican candidates now for a while and he has recently bumped McCain out of the way. He has good conservative Christian values that have impressed me intensely. He is also a former Baptist minister. I have added just a few of his links to the left for you to check out in your spare time. HE'S WORTH CHECKING OUT!!! We cannot get someone like Hillary in there who is just going to turn her back on this country and work on making a bigger name for herself. Yes, I like Rudy, and he has some very good attributes.......but he is not Pro Choice and that has really bothered me. We are made in God's image, that means we also contain His feelings and thoughts when you think about it. Would Christ say it's right to abort a baby just because??? No.....and that's how I make myself think about it. There are numerous options out there.....but an innocent child, from that second of conception, should not be punished. Huckabee is ProChoice, his voting record is on a steady course and he has not changed from year to year on his beliefs. Oh well, enough of my political rambling for now.
Remember to keep the family of Jessica Davis, the pregnant woman in Ohio, in your prayers tonight as they still continue to search for her. There are too many crimes in this world anymore. It's time everyone turns to help one another in our own country. And while I am at it, I am sick to death of everyone saying that they need to send our troops home and criticize them for fighting this war. Yes, I don't like our troops being there, but my husband sacrificed time with his family, baseball games, award ceremonies at his children's school, birthday's, anniversaries and Christmas so that he could fight for what he believes in. I believed in him the entire time he was there and if he does decide to go back, (or the miltary decides to send him back), I will send him off with the best smile I possibly can because HE is one of the strong and brave fighting for OUR RIGHTS and OUR protection. We are everyone's enemy.....many people still do not get that. Instead they want to tear down our soldiers morale and hurt all of the military families back here waiting for their return. What happened to supporting our troops? Asking a deployed soldiers family if they need a babysitter for a few hours so that they can have some time for themselves to get a haircut, manicure, ANYTHING to help them cope with being the head of the household while their spouse is gone?? I'm sure their are many military wives out there that will agree with me that WE SERVE OUR COUNTRY TOO! AND I AM DANG PROUD OF IT!!!! So don't tell me that you will not fund the supplies that my husband may need when he goes back to fight this awful war. LISTEN TO OUR SOLDIERS!!! Those who have been there, are there and have seen the smile on the children's faces when they see them walking down the street protecting them. They hear the thank you's from a foreign land and only criticism and condemnation from their own country. Just a little something to sleep on.......

My day was nice because I only had 5 preschoolers show up today so it was an easy day. And I got to bring one of the little girls home that goes to church with us for the afternoon to play, Miss Caitlin. She is such a sweety......long blonde curly hair and she never stops talking! LOL Very intelligent little young lady.
So, don't look for me to post much tomorrow until I get all my goodies from my stressful week. Whoo hoo!!! Scrapbooking is gonna be going on tomorrow night at this house!!!

She knows that she's stressing me out and that she's being lazy. I am starting to wonder and worry about grades coming in. They should arrive anytime next week. Another example is that she's waited over a year and a half to take her driver's test.....okay, I can understand a few months until she's ready...but now it's getting so busy around this house that I could use an extra hand. Especially once Eric starts serving his time at Bragg in the fall. I don't know how to approach her anymore than I have. I've tried the show and tell treatment where I show her how to do everything exactly the way it should be done, reminders, huffing and puffing, lol.....I'm just ready for the bridge!!!!

Brady will never let me hear the end of this!"
Friday, June 8, 2007
Would you have to change your clothes
Before you let Him in?
Or hide some magazines, and put
The Bible where they'd been?
Would you hide your worldly music
And put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in,
Or would you rush about?
And I wonder, if the Savior
Spent a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing
The things you always do?
Would you go right on saying
The things you always say?
Or would life for you continue
As it does from day to day?
Would you take Jesus with you
Everywhere you go?
Or would you maybe change your
Plans for just a day or so?
Would you be glad to have Him
Meet your closest friends?
Or would you hope they stay away
Until His visit ends?
Would you be glad to have Him
Stay forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief
When he at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know,
The things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person,
To spend some time with you.

Of course, I've had work and baseball. We also had preschool graduation for our 4 year old's this week and I had to say good-bye to my little 3 year old monkeys. I will be teaching the 1's/2's for the summer and not all of the children return anyhow for summer camp. I will miss those little tikes. Life has gotten in the way too. I have to begin on my preschool summer camp lesson plan projects and we have baseball tournaments coming up this week so once again......life will interrupt me.
Update on my friend Deborah that I requested you all to pray for.......she fell on Monday and she ended up having to have her femur operated on Wednesday. This surgery was harder on her than the past two she's had. Unfortunately, they found another tumor on her leg while they were operating. Please continue to keep her in your prayers and I will keep you all updated as well.
I hope that everyone has had a terrific Saturday! I'm sure I will "paint" some more tomorrow......then Brady has a double header so I'll be at the ball field in the evening. Maybe I can get some Preschool work done then.........(doubt it...hehe).

"Hello, my name is Nikita. Can I come live with you I love children and I sure miss my brother, Pugsley. I need your help."
My heart goes out to Pugsley's sister, Nikita though. She is so adorable. A Kai Ken is a very special breed of dog. She is darker in color than Pugsley is. PLEASE, if you know anyone that would like an animal let me know ASAP!!! If I could, I would save them all. I know that one day I will probably be fostering myself and Trish and I would LOVE to have our own Rescue Organization. There are just too many precious pets out there for us to ignore. And they don't deserve to lose there life because the human race doesn't want to care for them. It's just sad!!!
My dogs are my children and they receive equal time with me each day just as my kids do. Right now, Mia is laying on my lap as I type this, Pugsley is sleeping right here int he corner of my office and Meadow is laying by my feet. They are wonderful and precious. I would be lost without there love and companionship. And I know they would be lost without me as well. Please pray about rescuing one of these pets. If you are in another state, I'll arrange transportation for you. I'll drive them there if I have to myself. Have a great day everyone!!!
