Two days in a row!!!

Today was good. We had all 16 kids there...WOW they are a handful. The funny thing is that wild child that was out yesterday was back today, and he was great!! But I guess him being there made the other wild child feel like he had to act out. Crazy kids! But ya gotta love em, cause I do!! Anyhow, that's all about today. I went to class tonight and it was boring as always. I love getting my education but I think I'm just ready for it to be over with. Well, here it is again LATE and I need to get some rest so off to bed I go...Night!!

Back to the NORMAL life...

Vacation was wonderful. More then wonderful whatever that is. The only thing I would have changed would have been Jamie going to the beach with my family. But other then that I was great. It only rained two days which is great for a seven day week. Anyhow, I crocheted and read and walked on the beach. I found a ton of shark's teeth and sea shells. Honestly I did not get in the ocean at all other then my feet being in it. I didn't want to go to the trouble of putting on sun screen (which I dislike greatly) and then also taking my contacts out. Call me lazy but I was on vacation so I could be lazy! hehe. We left on Easter Sunday around 1:30 and came back on the 23rd and got home around 3:15. Anyhow, I'll move on now...Today was the first day back at work and I knew that I would be worn out after work. But the kids were good today and it was great. They were good because the "problem" child was out today. So then I went to Jamie's and worked on the flower bed where I am going to plant flowers. Then he fixed me supper and I did homework. FUN! Speaking of homework, I only have 1 more week of school!! WOOHOO!! The day before I left for the beach we had Jamie a house-warming party and it went great I thought. But his brother, Jason, came in and we (Jason, Jamie and I) went to the Hickory mall. Well, I wanted to show Jason the ring I had picked out. Well, I know I put that picture on here bfore but I found a prettier one. It's basically the same cut and ring just a different way. This is still a 1 carat and it still has the little hearts under the stones. Here's a picture of it...

Isn't it pretty!! I love it. One day someday. Well...It's getting late and I need to go to bed. Write more soon! Night!

You are awesome, O God, in your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!

Psalm 68:35 (NIV)

It has been a while since I last wrote. And I do have an excuse. It is because I've been so busy with school and work. Last weekend I went to see my best friend Trisha. It was her son's 2nd b-day and I went and spent the whole weekend. It was so fun! I will have an excuse for not writing all week...I'm leaving for vacation later today right after church. HAPPY EASTER!!! My family and I, and 1 cousin, are leaving for the beach today. We will be gone until April 23rd. And I am so ready. Hopefully this vacation will give me lots of rest and I'll write more when I get back...We shall see...

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. -Colossians 4:17 (NIV)
