It's Ok Thursdays!

Today, I'm linking up with Amber for "It's Ok" Thursdays! I haven't done it in a while, or any link up for that matter, so I figured today was a good day to get back to it.

Its Ok Thursdays

It's Ok...

-that I don't feel like doing anything at work today...I was up late last night caring for my poor sick puppy, Rowdy, so I'm exhausted!

-that I get aggravated with the returning college student's ignorant's been 2 years since I graduated so I do not fall into that category (and graduate students know better)!!

-that I feel like I could use a vacation, girls weekend, or just to sit in one of the chairs in the picture below for an HOUR...I've done nothing but go to work, clean when I get home, and deal with this ridiculously irritating Scabies skin infection so I think deserve one!

-that I am really excited about the predicted cold front coming in this weekend...even if it is just in the 80's that was be GREAT!!

-that I wish every week was only a 4 day work week like this's been really nice thinking it's Wednesday when thankfully it's actually Thursday! Thank you, Labor Day!

- that I would love to just eat junk food tonight and do absolutely NOTHING...I've been eating pretty healthy lately so I think one unhealthy night wouldn't hurt. 

-that I miss so many of my friends that live away from me and that I haven't seen to the point I could cry! :(

-that I am super stoked about the first Texas Aggie football game this weekend as part of the SEC!!  BTHO Florida!! 

What are y'all "Ok" with today?

How My Life's Been Goin'

Seems every time I find the time to post it's months and months later!! Life's been treating me pretty well! I still love my job so much at the church. It keeps me busy most days and when I'm not I'm blessed to be able to play on Facebook or Pinterest as much as I want! Unfortunately, a lot of the people I work with have quit lately with great opportunities they've each found in different towns and ,sadly, the same goes for a lot of my friends. :( I'm so happy for everybody (really I AM) I've just been down a lot lately and I suppose in need of companionship. I love being married and am still very much blessed in love!! There are just many stresses that I'm sure my married readers can testify to and it gets tough. It would just help to have some girlfriends every so often to hang out with and I don't know where to begin to make some new ones since all mine seem to be moving away or are already far away. Have any of you been in my position and if so what did y'all do?

It'd also help to just get away for the weekend! Even though that's not exactly possible right now. My parents just got back from a LONG road trip through the West part of the countryside. They drove through New Mexico, Arizona, up along the California coastline. Heading back, they went through Nevada, went by the Grand Canyon, and made there way back to Texas after that. My dad was nice enough to text pictures of ALL the places he knew I would LOVE to see myself..wasn't that sweet of him. :-P

     I am happy to say that I got a brand new car!!! It was time to trade in the ol' mustang and upgrade to something more my age!

What do ya think?!!

It's a Ford Edge SE 2013 and I am completely in love with it!! It's so roomy and quiet! It has more bells and whistles than I seriously know what to do with with. The Ford Sync system allows me to tell my car to call anybody through my phone, play a CD, radio, Sirius Satellite radio, or music even on my phone. Probably my favorite part, being so short and all, is how tall I feel when I drive! HA HA!! It makes the car payment that I'm still getting used to more worth it. 

Guess that's all for now! Would love to hear what you all have been up to!

LONG Overdue Update!

Hello everybody!

It has been wayyyyyyyy too long since I posted last and a lot has happened that's good and some not so good.

In my last post I mentioned that I finally got a call about a job with the church I really wanted to work at and I did get it. :)

This job has been everything I had hoped for and more!! The people I work with are just absolutely wonderful and I can honestly say that I look forward to going to work each day! It's not too strenuous on me which is a big deal for my rheumatoid arthritis. We have even visited a few times on Sunday mornings and are seriously considering joining. We want to check out the Sunday school class first and then we'll make our final decision.

My hubby and I moved to a downstairs apartment which was very exciting. The not so exciting part is why we had to move. I found out a couple months ago that I would need to have my left ankle replaced. Some of you may remember that I had my right ankle replaced back in November 2010. Not only did I need a new left ankle, but I also had to have neck surgery the same day. I thank God that we found out before it could have turned into something more serious. The doctor said the vertebrae that were lose in my neck could have eventually severed my spinal cord and caused breathing problems and/or paralysis. So to say I was lucky is an understatement...God was truly looking out for me!! Both surgeries were done on February 6th and I have another 3 weeks to go in my ankle cast before I can start walking again and my neck is recovering very well.

Even though we just moved to our new apartment, Quade just found out from a woman that he works with that we may have the opportunity to move into an amazing townhome for a little more than what we are paying now!! It's 3 bedroom/3bathroom and completely updated. That's one extra bedroom and 2 extra bathrooms than what we have now.  There's also a pool and basketball and tennis courts which are terrific bonuses.

 This isn't the exact one we may be getting, but they all look like this out front and I think they are just perfect! 

Now that we are a two person income family and not just one, we could easily afford the bump in rent. We're just praying that this is something that God will bless us with and, if not, we know it's just not in His plan for us at this time.

Hope you all are doing wonderful and having a fantastic week and I'm going to do much better posting from now on. Oh and.....
