The Party of the Century


On Friday April 18, my first born turned 8. We had a fabulous party! A luau at that. There were 82 (give or take) people at my house! We had a swimming, hula hoop contest, jump rope contest and limbo contest. We ran out of hotdogs, chips and cake! I do think everyone got cake....
We had a blast! We are still recooperating.... the party was 2 weeks ago and the decorations are still in the pool area. That will be one of my projects today... get the pool area back to normal.
Allison I hope your day was extra special! You are a wonderful young lady and we are blessed to have you as our first born. Thank you Lord for trusting us with this little girl. Give us the wisdom, strength and patience to raise her in Your ways.

My Cleaning lady is not very efficient - HELP!

My house is a mess! The pool area still has decorations up from the party of the century, my sewing room has a pathway through it; my kids rooms, I think the floor has disappeared. And the office has miscellaneous stuff lying around. Everyday I walk into those rooms I get very upset. The cleaning lady has not done her job. She has not picked up, put away and organized those rooms. She is not very good. She has to be told over and over what to do and she just does them in her own time. She is there all the time but seems to not get very much down. I really can't complain too much. She doesn't charge anything to do all the cooking, cleaning, and decluttering. When she does everything, she does a very good job... It's just getting her to do her duties! Hopefully she will be motivated very soon to get some things done! Pray for me!

The fever is gone!

The fever lasted only a few days! Now the weather is windy, dirty, hot, and just plain gross! The sky is not even blue, it is the color of dirt! Welcome to West Texas.
