It's been almost a month

since I have written  on here, but my life has been so busy and I just really needed the time away. Scheduling conflicts and real life family issues have taken the most of my time.  During the week I don't have any computer time on Monday and Tuesdays  evenings anymore.  Except on rare occasion. So unless I were to post early in the AM (5:00) or so I can't post.  Maybe if I wrote post on Sunday and scheduled them...but I like being able to spend my Sunday's doing family/couple things.  (Although I think I might figure something out for those days). I truly do hate being away so long, I would love to devote more time to sharing more, but I feel overwhelmed so much of time because I don't have it in me to share at the end of the day.  Is this making sense?  Can anyone out there relate?  Also, it seems like the longer your away the harder it is to get back in the grove.

I don't want to go into the family issues here, but let me please say thanks to you all who have prayed for me and my family.  It means so much to know that we are being lifted up in prayer.  Continued prayers are  needed.

Now on to other things that is going on in my life.  Work is crazy, alot of changes going on there, seems like it NEVER ends.  From my job demands too where I sit on a day to day basis. My hours changed back in October instead of going in at 4:30 AM and getting off at 2:30, I work 9-5 but with a 1.5 hour drive (one way) and at that time of the morning longer, it makes for a long day.  But overall I have finally adjusted to that schedule.  I am so thankful that it gets dark later.  Now I am not driving both ways in the dark.  :) 

I have been alone this weekend,  Michael went to Texas to pick up his new truck. So I have had a chance to work Michaels New Truckon some much needed things in my house.  I decided to spend some time rearranging my furniture and "knick knacks" on Saturday.  Oh I like it so much better.  It felt good to expend some of that bottled up creativity that was inside me.  I hadn't done that in a LOOOONNNNNNNGGGGGGG time. On a regular bases I use to move and change things around but not so much over the past several years.  It felt wonderful and made me feel more like my old self.  I had several other things that I wanted to do, but didn't get to them all.  So they will go on my "to-do" list. 

I have also spent time doing some reading.  I am reading another Beverly Lewis book. The "SummerHill Series 2".  I actually bought 1 and 2 a while back and read 1 right away.  When I was ready to read 2, it was gone.  I think it got threw out with the bags or something, because I never did find it.  So last week while out doing some shopping I picked up another copy. 

Ok, I just felt the need to explain myself a little and let you know that as things are getting some better around here, I might be around a little more.  For the nights when I don't have time for a post, you can still catch me on Facebook. Is that addicting or what?  It has actually been very good for me, I have had the opportunity to connect with friends that I haven't seen in 20+ years.  From the early years of the Navy days - until now. 

Hope you have had a wonderful blessed Sunday!

Cindy, I can so relate to this post. I will pray about your family situation. I too am going through major stuff, not with immediate, but with my brother and things he's done that impact our family. We need prayer too. Bless you sweetie. Thanks for coming by to say hi. I envy you about reading. I need to sit down and get into a really good book like that. Have a great week. Hugs, Kathi
