Getting ready..

I know I told you all that I am ready to make a change, to do something more meaningful with my life.

There was a time that I was proud of my "job". You should see the look on people’s faces when you say "I'm a dance teacher" That all changes when you started to look for a "real job". Then they treat you like because you were a dance teacher you must not have a brain in your head. I guess some people don't realize that to run a business, keep all those kids in line, order costumes and schedule, plan, put together and pull off a recital takes no talent or brain....ANYWAY!!!

Since leaving the "dancing" scene behind I have had a hard time. Now that I am back to dancing (on my own not teaching) I feel like it’s time to make a change in my professional (if you can call it that) life. I posted that I wanted to make this change and my husband is on board! This week we have put our cars for sale. I have prayed about this and I guess the true sign will be if the automobiles sale for enough that we can get a couple of used (but very cheap) cars that can be paid off.

If that happens I will be a full time student soon.

I've been praying, so we will see if this is His will!

Also just wanted to point out the book "These Things Hidden" AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of those books that just leaves you thinking "Really???" It was great, and I love the way Heather Gudenkauf writes from everyone's perspective. I love it!

We Want To Know....


We Want to Know Wednesday Q&A is hosted by:

Here are the rules to participate:

1. Please include the Ah..mazingly cute button in your post.

2. Please link your ‘WWTK’ post to the linky.

3. Please mention and link to all four of them. 

1} If you could choose a Super Power, what would it be?

I would choose flight.  I would like to be able to fly anywhere anytime I wanted to without having to pay for fuel to travel or airfare!

{2} What would be your first frivolous purchase if you were awarded a million dollars tomorrow?

I'm not a real frivolous person.  My first purchase would be a home with 2 bathrooms!

from eplans.com

{3} What would be the hardest current luxury for you to give up?

My cell phone, I think everything else I could give up easily but not my cell phone...I've considered trying though.  I really love my blackberry!  I would trade it for an iphone though!

{4} If you were given a choice between being given great wisdom and great wealth, which would you choose?

Wealth is nothing if you are not "wise" enough to manage the money, so I choose wisdom.  With wisdom you can figure out a way to earn the money you want...so really you end up with both.

{5} If you were to be stranded on a deserted island for 100 days what 5 THINGS would you pack?

Since we are picking "Things" and not people....

1. large Tent:  I will need somewhere to sleep that will shield me from the nastiness of the outside (bugs, spiders, snakes) I need that to be one heck of a durable tent and large enough that if something does get in it I can get up and out without killing myself.

2. Blanket :  I will need something to cover up with when it is cold, or something to fold under my head when I have a migraine, I don't like to be without covers when I sleep so the blanket is more important than a pillow.

3. Fishing pole: give a man a fish feed him for a day, teach a man to fish feed him for life....I hate fish, but I will have to eat something!

4. lighter: a BIC full of fluid so that I can cook the nasty fish I catch...did I mention that I hate fish...maybe I can trade both of these for a huge case of Chef Boy RD?? I can eat that cold if necessary.

5. Gun

Oh you are wondering about the gun...what if this island has dangerous animals!!!!!!  I will need protection from them (I assume that we all keep our guns loaded otherwise it's an expensive rock)

Of course I would never be stranded...checkout my super power in question 1....I'd just fly home!

Now click on the link at the top and join us for these cool questions!!!!!!!!

True Story Tuesday: The locked car door

I am linking up with Rachel and Mr. Daddy for their True Story Tuesday this week.  Rachel always has the funniest stories to tell!  Click here to go over and link up and share a funny tale of your own!

Last weekend I was coming in the house, as Wes was leaving (that's the story of my life) and as he walked past me to get into his truck we started talking about the day's schedule.  I leave my gun in my car sometimes if I know I am leaving again so I reached up and locked my car door with the  key fob.  You have to click it twice to hear the horn blow letting you know that the door is locked.  I clicked it once, then twice..no horn.

Wes was standing at his truck unlocking the door as we continued to talk and I continued to click my key fob.  The battery was dying and I was being lazy not wanting to walk back to the car.  As we were talking I clicked the lock button two more times. 

I still had not looked down to see if the little battery light was blinking.  We were so into our conversation and I honestly wasn't paying attention.  Then Wes stopped in mid sentence and turned around and said "Will quit locking my door I'm trying to leave!"

Oops wrong key fob!

"No cow, my hat"

On Monday of last week I asked for your prayers for my friend Tracy.  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you she lost her baby on Monday of last week.  She has had a hard time, but her faith in God is very strong.  She is still needing prayers.  This is a very hard time of year for her.  Her daughter died on Easter day in 2006, and her birthday would have been last week.  She is feeling weak and she is struggling.  Please continue to pray for peace and strength for her.

You remember me talking about baseball last year, and how Cam always sits the bench.  I know that coaches will disagree with me, but I feel like that all the children should play equal in a league that you sign up and pay to play.  The reason I feel this way is that I think that game time improves a child's technique.  If you put a kid in the field for only a small part of the game, then he is not going to be as comfortable when he does finally get some action, and he feels less of a player than the other kids.  (with this being said I also think that if it's a league where kids try out to be on a team then its different if they sit the bench.)

Anyway..At Saturdays game Cameron played second base AND batted twice!!!!  Whoo!  He did great too!  He got a base hit (nice swing, went to the outfield) stole second and third and was brought in by a base hit!!!!!!  He finally got to score for the first time in  a year!!!!!!  I can't tell you what this did for him!  (Last year he would only get one hit, and was usually walked, and most of the time he was left on base when the inning was over, others he was thrown out).  I'm so proud of my little man! (who isn't quite so little anymore)

and lastly I would like to share a quick picture of my nephew with you.  He just turned 2 years old, and yesterday we were walking around the pasture and he walked up to our bull who was relaxing in the sun (our bull is 15 years old and he is getting laid back in his old age)...

He put the hat on the bull, then snatched if off and said "No cow, my hat"....
