An Afternoon Drive

I took a drive the other day. Long, straight roads for as far as the eye could see. Some great music from my MP3 player, a great afternoon.

What a nice relaxing weekend. Had a nice double date at my favorite Mexican restaurant Friday night, Saturday night had some friends over for some Wii bowling, Sunday relaxed at home and enjoyed Valentines day with the loves of my life and Monday took some photos for a friends new baby. Overall a great weekend! Back to work tonight. It's been a busy weekend, workwise so there should lots to catch up on. Have a great week.

Romans 8:38-39 (New International Version)
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I just love that scripture. I have been searching a lot lately through old devotionals, old books, old prayer journals. I am not sure what I am searching for. Whatever it is I haven't quite found it yet. But in the process I have discovered a lot of inspiring passages, quotes, stories and such. I guess I am looking for the warm and fuzzy feeling. You know with busyness, stress, reality of life.....sometimes you forget what that feels like. I know that I have a lot of love in my life, for that I am so grateful for. Don't get me wrong. I feel love, I really do. But I can't help but feel some days that there is something missing. Looking out the window right now, that something is probably the sun. Winter blues are kicking in right??

My Day With Emilee....

It's back to work tonight. I have thoroughly enjoyed my two days off. I had big plans of getting so much accomplished. Most of which didn't happen. There is always next weekend right? I did get the downstairs bathroom painted! I have been talking about painting that room for months now. Emilee was begging me to do it so we woke up early this morning, picked out some paint we had leftover from something else and got to work. She is a great little helper. We finished up by lunch time. Now that I took the initial step to start the painting process, it is so apparent how badly the rest of the rooms need a fresh coat of paint. I guess it's paining for the next couple of months for me. Oh well, could be fun.
It was so much fun just hanging out with Emilee. She is growing up so quickly. Our conversations today seemed so "grown up". It scared me just a bit. She asked me today how old she had to be to have a boyfriend??? What?
Cody and Caitlyn spend the day with Grandma and Grandpa. They took a trip to the dollar store and the to McDonalds. What could be better right? It was nice having some one-on-one time with Em but I sure miss the littlest buggers when they are gone. We had a lazy afternoon nap and now are just having some cuddle time on the couch. Good times!

Monday Bliss

Had a great day of cleaning house, editing photos, a quick workout and a nice long nap. What can be better? It's back to work tonight. The kids all woke up with stomach aches, hopefully we are not getting round two for the flu bug.....

Here's a few of the photos I have been working on editing. Now what could possibly need fixed on a photo of such a cutie??? It was all me, the lighting was terrible so therefore lots, and lots of photo shop. I think they are okay though.
