Almost March already??

You're kidding, right? Where has the time been going? How is it almost March? Geesh! I'm sitting here listening to my dryer squeak and hoping the weather stays cool enough that we won't need AC tomorrow. Our Air conditioner is out. Our dryer is on its last leg. My oil change light is on. Hubby needs a brake job and a few other things done to his truck. Bills are past due. My taxes didn't come this week like they were scheduled to. The list is far longer than this. Yet, I'll keep on praying and will keep doing what I CAN do to make things better.

I've been working my way through my "to do" list. It seems to be a never ending list though. I think I've been in the "dark side" more during the time since I started this blog than I ever was before. 2010 and 2011 were quite the years for me. I'm ready for 2012 to be a much better year. I'd better hurry up and do what I can to make that happen! This year is going much too quick!

How is everyone else doing out there???

Been a while!

I cannot believe I haven't posted on here since October! That's INSANE! Wow. I have been reading other people's blogs...a lot. I have got so many great ideas from them!! I have been organizing like crazy and loving it. I've been doing some crafting and I am pleased with my creations so far, surprised that they've turned out as they have. I am always self proclaimed "no good" at them. I've always liked them, a lot. I've always had creative ideas. Actually successfully doing it is another story...LOL. As always I have been trying lots of recipes. As a matter of fact, I just tried something tonight and it's a big hit! In fact, I made them from scratch and hubby thought I'd bought them because they look professional. I was getting worried because my cooking and baking this week has not exactly been stellar. I think it has something to do with using self rising flour that my well meaning hubby picked up on an extremely rare occasion where he went shopping with me. I sent him out for specific items and every time he brought one back it was the wrong thing, but..I didn't notice it until we were home. lol. It's official, now he's not ALLOWED to go with me. This doesn't bother him a bit.

A lot has been going on since I last posted. I'm trying to get used to my hubby's schedule changing because it is messing everyone up to adjust to it, and trying to keep my kids motivated to go to school and do well. For some reason that is an issue this year too! Finances are a serious issue but I try to keep a positive attitude. I'm frustrated though.

I've been working on a few stories, I read them to my family and they tell me that they're good. I know, that is probably not saying much to most, but, it lets me know I'm going in the right direction.

I hope everyone is doing well. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years.
