So I have been crazy busy and super tired! And it's only going to get crazier! This week is a conference week at Willow and I'm stage managing, then I have my promiseland weekend to do. I will have Monday off! =) Tuesday and Wednesday I have to get a ton of Promiseland Work done and I have some other things to take care of and then Mark, Malachy, and I are going to Wisconsin Thursday and Frirday. I can't wait for that it will be nice to have "family" time! I have to get back early Saturday to work the Promiseland weekend.

Mark leaves for Russia that Sunday for an entire week! (a week from this Sunday) Yikes, it will be a challange not having his help for a whole week! I haven't really figured out how I'm going to do that yet. I'm sure it will involve my support group...Mom, Dad, Crystal, Kim, Sandy, and Sara! I'm crazy lucky to have such great and patient friends!

Then the following weekend I'm going to do a Womens retreat with church, so I will be gone for 2 nights. I will miss my Promiseland Weekend. =( But I'm sure it will be ok. I'm looking forward to some time to stop and focus on God. I know I need it.

The next weekend, October 21st, is Malachys birthday!! We still haven't come up with a party plan but we will. =)

Then we are going to Iowa for Halloween!!! Wow! Malachy loves his cousins as much as I lovev using !! at the end of every sentence.

We also need to get a new furnace before the real cold hits, so I'm not sure what to think about that! Hopefully I still have a few weeks because I don't see it happening before Mark gets back from Russia. I may be moving in with Crystal for a week. =)

Anyhow, I have no pictures because Kim still has my camera!

Alright I better go do the laundry and dishes and try and get me and Malachy in bed. I'm getting picked up for work at 4:45am tomorrow! Yikes!

I bought stuff!

OK so Gymboree had another amazing sale so I finally got the husband to let me buy stuff! I got the Fair Isle sweater I loved and some other stuff! Crystal went with me and after I checked out I was so happy I found myself chucking and smiling! I love Malachy clothes, happy day! =)

Another Town. By: Steve Earle

This song came on my shuffle today
and I was like oh man that's exactly how I feel today!

One of these days when my minds made up
And I’m sick and tired of hangin’ around
I’ll be on my way in a cloud of dust
On the road to another town
Once upon a time I loved this house
Now I’m thinkin’ ’bout burnin’ it down
And I’ll be long gone when the fire burns out
On the way to another town
To see another city in another light
With my past behind me and my future bright
One of these days when I’ve had enough
Buddy, you ain’t gonna see me around
Just as soon as I get my courage up
Gonna take it to another town
I used to walk these streets with my head held high
Now I’m always lookin’ down at the ground
But I see my feet on the outbound side
Of a road to another town
And I’m gonna tell everybody I know
Yeah I’m gonna spread it around
That there’s a great big world out there where I go
On the road to another town
To see another city in another light
With my past behind me and my future bright
One of these days when my mind’s made up
And I’m sick and tired of hangin’ around
I’ll be down that road in a cloud of dust
On the way to another town

Just for fun!

If you are looking for something amazing to get Malachy for his b-day look no further! Gymboree has a sale going on where seweaters that are normally $34 are now $2o for a limited time. The Moose on the loose line and tools like are adorable! Malachy is a 3T in tops. I don't get him pants there because they are cheaper else where... Check it out.

Here are some links for you...
You may have to cut and paste

I can't believe he is almost 3! Yesterday at Target he was telling me all the thing he wants for his birthday. Hes so funny the list include paper plates and garbage bags!

random update

So life is going pretty well. A little overwhelming at work because there is just so much to do and not enough time. But for the most part I'm still loving my job and the people I work with so I feel really lucky. The blanket I have wanted at Target for almost 2 years finally went on clearance! So I got it for 50% off and I'm really excited about that. I seriously have checked every week for nearly 2 years so it feels like a huge relief to have it and not to have to check if it is on clearance yet every time I'm in Target! =) Crystal is taking me scrap booking for my b-day tomorrow! =) Then after work Saturday the Kunzes are coming over as well as KC's family. Then after work Sunday we have a family picnic with our department at work. So I'm crazy busy and tired!! But it's all fun stuff. Here are some old pictures because I love to post pictures!
