What a Christmas! It was slim pickins but the kids had a blast and appreciated everything they got. I don't know what the new year holds for us, we are facing some pretty scarey decisions and fighting to stay afloat harder then we ever have. But I have put my trust in the Lord and I know he will watch out for us, no matter what happens. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas:).

I have been slacking! I apologize, my father-in-law became ill and was hospitalized so my brain has been elsewhere. I am going to catch up as quickly as possible, so today for you viewing pleasure we have.......

62 Days ago I did the unthinkable, I quit smoking. Yes I did, I know it is hard to believe. I still can't believe it myself but I did it. It has been extremely difficult, I gained 7 pounds, my penchant for Twizzlers has gone through the roof and I get very cranky if I can't find anything sweet.
But as I said before I did it and it has made my husband's life a living hell. I am not talking mood swings, he was used to that already. I am talking about how the smell of cigarette smoke now makes me physically nauseous or the fact that I go into a fit of killer sneezes if he gets too close and I smell smoke on him. Yeah, it hasn't been much fun for him but that's life right? I quit, he won't, I don't drink, he does, is there a place to meet in the middle? Only time will tell, until then I have to find the motivation to get my butt to the gym to work out and drop the quit weight. I do have to admit that I don't miss the constant sore throats or the sicky eyes or stuffy nose. I can taste my food, I mean REALLY taste my food and if I bitch at you about smoking, I have the right too because I am an ex-smoker. My kids are insanely proud of me and I am insanely proud of myself.

Do you have a hobby? I have a new hobby, I thought it would be fun to try and make my daughter's friends bracelets for Christmas. So I go to the local bead store and now two weeks later, not only have I made the bracelets I have also made chains for eyeglasses and earrings. I am completely dumbfouded and how addicting and relaxing it is. The only downside is it is an expensive hobby and when you don't have the money to keep it up on a regular basis, you find yourself jonesing for and dreaming about beads and different designs for earrings and bracelets, LOL. Oh well, I'll take jonesing for beads over jonesing for cigarettes any day:).

I have these two friends, Jared and Kellee. It took them awhile to find each other, their paths kept crossing and nothing. Then one day, FINALLY, they met and cupid smacked them both up the sides of their heads and they have been together ever since. They are funny, smart, compassionate, empathetic, they love god, they have a faith that never seems to waiver. They are the couple that everyone wants to be (even if they don't say it out loud). Their love is the love that everyone wants to find and is constantly searching for......God didn't just break the mold when he made these two, he shattered it. But then he took all the pieces from both the molds and he made one little perfect red headed angel and sent their little Zinni down to them. It's funny, they are so amazing I don't feel worthy to be their friend and yet for some reason they like me....either they are looking through rose colored glasses or they are gluttons for punishment.
