New Link

I added a new link to this woman's blog.....Sweat Pants Mom.
I originally saw it on your blog Rachael.
She is so funny. I wish I could write like her. You need to check it out.

Runaway Moms (and Harrison)

My mom and I ran away this week (and Harrison too). Life has been pretty difficult here lately for both of us (Harrison's life isn't so difficult, just still attached to the mom). We decided to get away from it all for a couple of days. We met in Chattanooga. We basically ate the whole time. I am so sick of eating!!! (until lunch time that is) We did however eat wonderful food. We found a Greek restaurant that we ate at for every meal. It was starting to get embarrassing that we kept coming back, but the food was worth it.
It was fun to be with my mom. I miss getting to just be with her. Harrison was great. He enjoyed some alone time with us and might I add that he enjoyed all the eating.
I got back home yesterday afternoon. It was good to be home, but Julia was a crab all night and both the kids were up all night - I might need to run away again! At least get a nap, that might help. Back at work - no napping for me.

finally feeling normal

You will all be happy to know that I feel like I am back among the sain again. Man, I had a rough week. I guess it was hormonal. I don't like feeling that way. I really didn't like myself or those around me! I pray that I will at least have a normal three weeks before starting this all again! Paul will probably move out that week. The kids may too.
I have actually accomplished a few things today. Julia is back at school - praise the Lord. It sure is quiet around here when she is gone. I got a couple of closets cleaned out and the kids dresser. I can't take a nap because my sheets are in the wash. So, I will just enjoy myself on the computer for a few moments.

I am feeling so blahh today. I wish I could just snap out of it. I feel incredibly aggitated and down. I would just like to go have a good cry and get it over, but then again I don't.
These are times when I miss my "mommy." I miss not having responsibility and having someone take care of me 24/7. It is really hard to care for my family when I feel like this.

will things ever change?

Please change me.
Please change my heart and my mind.
Sometimes I get so discouraged because things never change.
We battle the same things over and over.
Will we never get it right?
Will we never conquer our sin?
Help me to press forward and run my race.

I was thinking about this on my way home yesterday...
When Adam and Eve sinned - Eve's punishment was to have painful childbirth.
I am curious....
How would childbirth been different? If it was a pain free process would childbirth have been different? I don't understand how it would not have been painful. Would the baby still have come out the same way?
I'm glad God had Mercy on us and decided to let us invent epidurals so that some of us who had ten pound babies would not have to experience the pain.
I guess my punishment was having to endure the pain carrying the ten pound baby for 9 months!

Harrison's Birthday!

Harrison had a great Birthday.
He loved the cake as you can see. He wasn't getting it in fast enough so he decided just to stick his face in it.
He is so sweet and I am so glad he is in our life!
I can't believe it has already been a year. The time has flown by.
