Now where did that easy button go?

So here is the deal, life has been less than easy lately... but one thing that gets me through is knowing that God is my Savior and this is all in his plan. On the other hand there is always the Woody Hayes philiosophy as well, "Anything easy Ain't worth a damn!"

No one ever said life would be easy, and I am ok with that. There are just things that I want to do with my life and I know with timing it will all happen... however, I am human and the wait is killing me.

So here is what I have been up to lately: (In bullet point format so that I can include everything)

*I was in a car accident. Thankfully minor, however, did a number on my car

*I blew out a tire... One of my brand new tires I might add

*I am thankful for family and friends and their ongoing support and concern, however... my husband and I  
  have a special and unique relationship. No one will ever understand that, I am ok with this. I praise God
  every minute that I am so loved. I really don't know what I would do without most of these people in my

*As I have said before, my children do pageants, they love it. We keep it real simple and natural, before you 
  start judging me... and so we have been traveling a lot for those. Lybertei has a natural personality for the
  stage. The others are getting there. I only wish that they had started sooner so they all wouldn't be so shy.

*I am behind on my school work... I am really hoping my laptop is finished this week so that we can move 
  forward. I just want this class to be over anyway.

*Josey flushed Littlest Pet Shops down the toilet... So far so good, but there is still a chance Mommy will be
  changing the toilet... Thank goodness that my husband used to be a plumber... I know what to do.

*I made hard boiled eggs to color with the kids, except I didn't... I boiled the eggs like I always do seperated
  them into mini muffin tins for the girls and we were on our way to coloring bliss... however Josey threw one
  and it cracked... not a big deal except... it also seeped... The eggs were still raw... not sure how they were
  because I boiled them for thirty minutes... I guess you can't make 4 dozen eggs at once. OOPS!!!! Lesson

*Our eldest wants to join the school dance team, so the glutton for punishment that I am send in the
  paperwork. I am glad that she is doing it though... She is very shy and I hope that it brings her out of her

*I also signed the four eldest up for Sports camp this summer. Josey, Drea, and Payge will be doing Soccer
  and Sera will be doing Arts and Crafts... Should be interesting.

*I have taken up extreme couponing. I am very excited about this. There is a certain rush that comes with
  getting a really good bargain. I will be posting some of my finds here soon.

So that is what I have been up to....
