Me and Melody
Melody and her Boppy
Okay, the only reason I headed to the mall today was for one specific thing and then I find out when I get there they only carry it online! So much for trying to save money in the shipping department!I did happen to get two over jackets to wear over my dresses when it’s cooler though. I still haven’t quite gotten used to all the rain and cool weather being from Georgia and all. I’m looking forward to the fall weather though as it’s pretty hot lately and without full AC it’s been rather uncomfortable…especially in the computer/office room where I tend to get most of work done!
I need to get someone to take better pictures of me and my daughter together… the picture above was taken by me… but it took several attempts to get us both in the picture… lol … My husbands friend should be doing a photo shoot of our daughter pretty soon. I can’t wait to get it scheduled.
I’m wondering why my husbands ear is bleeding. He hasn’t stuck anything in there at all. I am pondering if it’s the fact that’s he listens to his ipod all day at work… and maybe that it’s up to loud and possibly damaging his ear drums. Despite the fact he got hired the health insurance doens’t kick in for a month. Pray this problem resolves itself or something…. I do know bleeding out the ear can’t be good for you!
TGIF? It’s been a good week and I am very much pleased with that. I got a bit of art done, I upgraded my wardrobe ( it was much needed), I’ve been getting together baby things to swap at church, my husband got hired at his job… all in all a good week.
I’ll probably blog more later to let you know how my day goes but I wanted to get that little tidbit in before Melody wakes up this morning.
My husband is no longer a temp ( had been for 9 months)! He got hired where he works at today! Now no more worries! We will finally have the benefits of insurance and everything! It took a while but God answers prayer! We need to celebrate some how! Yay!
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
Mark 11:24,25 NIV
