No laughing please!!!

Tomorrow is Monday.

I am going to attempt to get up when Keith gets up...and stay up!!

I said no laughing...please!!  :)

Everyone who knows me, knows I am NOT a morning person.  I would rather stay up all hours of the night and sleep late.  I hate getting up early.  But I know I must start now, so I can work on some other areas in my life that need discipline and change.

(I'm secretly wanting to get up @ 5 A.M. during the week...but I don't know if that is actually doable for me. :)

*****I'm glad no one is actually keeping up with this blog...because I didn't get up with Keith.  We went to bed late.  I did get up about 7:30 which is still early.  But I didn't get up at 6.*******

I want to start blogging again...

I really want to start blogging again...

I miss it...

I think I will try easing back into blogging...

Maybe even comment on some and see if anyone will start reading my little blog.  :)  

I need to blog our adventures moving from Navy life...into civilian life.  

There are a lot of adjustments coming up.  I am so scared!!  

I just keep thinking about Jeremiah 29:11-14.  

Praise God...I'm not in control! He is!! :)

Tsunami Warning

We are having a tsunami warning.

I'm surprisingly calm.

If Keith wasn't here...I would be freaking out!

He makes me laugh...I hope we are always this happy!!

I should have known something like this would happen...I promised my Mom I would get the pictures in the mail tomorrow...I should have added "As long as there isn't a tsunami!! :)"

Had a good day...

Life is getting better.

I can see a tiny light at the end of the tunnel.  :)

Today, Megs had a friend over.

Gracie did a lot of crafts.

Keith worked on some projects...

and I played with Gracie and made some chocolate chip cookies!!

Now I'm exhausted and I don't know why...but it was a good day.

I've decided that God is in control of our lives...I'm thankful for that!!

My goals for the next few months is to declutter all of our junk!!

No matter what is in store for us...We don't need half the junk we have!!

Blogging a post from my phone

I thought it would be fun to blog from my phone.
Yeah, I'm a dork! I admit it.
Here's a cool picture from my phone.

I also want to say a Happy Birthday to my sweet Momma! :)

A look back over the years...

So Keith downloaded all of our digital pictures onto my computer...

It's been fun looking at the past...

Meghan's First Day Of Kindergarten

Gracie's Birthday

One of my favorite pictures of Megs and Tickles
Awwww soooo sweet

Gracie's experience with ALL the Characters at Disney world...including Cinderella EXCEPT....

Prince Charming...Seriously...She LOVED him.  Boy are we in trouble!!!!

Well that's enough for tonight.  It's getting late and I'm tired.  I will continue this later in another post.

So excited about our future...and I don't have a clue what's ahead!!

I am so excited...

There's a possibility our lives will be turned upside down, but in a good way.

I'm so tired of all the bad news this year...I'm looking forward to some good news.

I know God is in control, so I'm going to try and be patient!!

I guess I need to start clearing out the clutter in this house...that will give me lots of things to do, while we "hurry up and wait" on the Navy.  :)

Just needed a little reminder that God's in control...

On Wednesday,  we got some news.  It seems like my life is being turned upside down.
It feels chaotic.  I needed a little reminder that God's in control.
Since I can't see the big picture in life.

So we went to Bellows Beach.

Isn't it beautiful??????
I am reminded that God is in control.  I'm going to miss this beach when we leave Hawaii.  It is my favorite beach in the world.  :)  Well my corner of the world.

I am so frustrated right now.
I really thought this year would be better.
I'm tired of whining about this too.
I really need just one good thing to happen right now.
Seriously, one thing...would be awesome.
I just keep thinking about Jeremiah 29:11-14.
God has a plan for me and my family.  This IS comforting.  I just need some good news.

Trying out some new fonts...

I'm trying out some new fonts on blogger.

I am frustrated with them right now.

Or maybe it's my fault, because I am not a techie.

Just call me a slacker...that's my real middle name!

Ok, I just realized that I didn't do my weekly positive post.

So give me a minute to think back over the week and I'm sure I can come up with something! 

Keith brought home beautiful flowers for me!

We got out of Pearl Harbor and rode to Kaneohe!  It was beautiful!

The girls are feeling good and doing well in school.

I lost a couple of lbs.  I started a new book "Made to Crave" by Lysa Terkeurst.  It's pretty much common sense...but I've had a lot of "AHA moments"!

Keith's Mom is doing another round of Chemo and she seems to be feeling good.  She had a few moments, but praise God she's doing good!  

I think that's about all.  For this week anyway.  :)

Only In Hawaii

Apparently there were thousands of Kauai residents who received this text from the Kauai Civil Defense, "The Sky is Falling."

Only in Hawaii...

Don't believe me?

I love my husband!!!

 I'm not the perfect wife, but he still loves me.  I am so thankful for the husband that God gave me.  I couldn't imagine my life without him.  I hope I never have to.   He truly is my best friend.

I had a really bad headache today.  I'm sure on the pain scale, it was only a 2, but to me it felt worse than that.   I needed some caffeine.  When Keith came home for lunch today, I asked him to bring me one back when he came home this afternoon.  He left to go back to work, and 10 mins. later he surprised me with a Coke Zero, before he went back to work.   This really made my day better.  He is always doing little things for me.  I really appreciate what he does for me.  He even cooked dinner tonight.  (He cooked dinner last night too.)

I think this is my 2nd positive post for this week.  I realize that everyday I have something to be thankful for.  I'm so thankful that even when we are going through tough times, God is still in control.  That promise is really a calm in the chaos.

My Goals for 2011

Well my first goal will be to actually blog.  I want to post at least 1 blog per week.  No matter what kind of week we are having.

Even though this year has started out worse than last year, I will find something positive to blog about.

I have the standard goals too.  You know, read my Bible more, pray more, be a better wife and mom.  Lose weight.  Eat healthy.   All those things that I have failed to do so far.  Well except maybe for the praying more...and reading my Bible more.  If I continue to do that, I'm sure the rest of my goals will be successful.

Positive thing for Today/this week?  Auburn won the BCS National Championship Game.  Yep.  The SEC won again for the 5th year.  Now I could go into some really negative thinking here, but I am choosing to stay positive.  Although it wasn't my favorite team, it is still the SEC who won.
And that is my positive thought for the day.  Hopefully they will get better... I really need some positive things to happen...

Day 3 of 2011

Boy was I wrong.  


2011 has started off terrible.  

Well I am going to blog the good and the bad.

But for now I'm going to bed...and listen to my husband snore....because he has an awful cold.  I will not complain.  I am just thankful he's here and not on deployment.
