So today...I ask for help

So this picture is just to make you SMILE! Its hanging on Shandra's Wall in her scrapbooking area and I love love it!

I am really posting to get advice from my friends who know me and call me a friend. Not to get into too much, I was born, baptized and raised catholic. I never really understood it or was ready to I guess. But things in life change you and when you need guidance the only way to look is up.
Problem is that I do not feel comfortable asking for help from someone I do not know.
I am a studier and that I have been doing, I am a TO DO list person and I have made one for myself.
What I ask from you? Prayers and advice.

Past and Present..Not Welcome

So I have held out sharing these. I guess because its difficult for me to imagine this is my one and only child. As you can see in the first picture she looks quite different. That picture was taken in August of 2009. The next 2 were taken on the first day of 8th grade and it doesnt seem like its the same child. It seems every year she looses the chubbiness in her face and is just a little more less cuddley. I totally get when people arent into hugging and snuggling with me, cause its not squishy I realize now its like a rectangle box with sharp corners.

Now she is 13 due to be 14 in January. The attitude is different but I can still make her laugh. Due to an experience this evening she will NEVER tell me she has hiccups. LOL I was just driving along thinking to myself "Wonder if I scared her what would happen" so driving along I let out a blood curdling scream and she screamed about to total tears. I am still laughing. Mean yes, entertaining yes, scarring her for life? Probably, but hey we both laughed to tears after. And it makes her think to always expect the unexpected.

Because some things are just TOO FUNNY not to share

This was on a sign as I was driving into my hometown of Arkansas City, KS. OMG I had to pull over, regain myself and take a pic!!

So it begins..

Mondays here seem to be the engine that starts the Indy 500 Car for the long race. Work:I decided to make myself leave at 3:30 (I should be real withmyself on this one because its always 15 mins later than planned) 3:45 I am leaving the hill.
I went home and got the chicken marinated; it in the oven; coleslaw salad made; hamburger browned for the Taco Soup going into the crock pot for lunch and dinner tomorrow and that all ready to roll. Picked up Carlee at 5:30 brought her home to eat and change then to softball practice by 6. Back to clean up dinner and the damage control of the house and then pick her up at 7:30. At this point its 9 and I gotta start slowing down. Usually I plan to be in bed by nine; considering my next 2 days consist of 10-12 hours days of dental assisting.

Excited for the weekend even though its just Monday. Mandy and Kirks wedding reception is this weekend and I am just so excited for them both I cannot wait. Carlee and I are ready for some country fun.
