spare time

I've incorporated some changes into my life.

One of them is a goal to spend less time on the computer. So if from now on I don't post as often that would be why.

I feel so much more productive and focused on better things when I take a breather from internet. I am one of those people who gets so caught up in everyone else's life (aka blogs & Facebook) and it makes me feel I'm swimming in cyber-space, which in turn kinda zombifies me to my own circumstances. I know- it's weird. I'm weird. What can I say?

Plus, Facebook has been especially annoying lately. But that's another story.

What have I been doing with all my free time? A couple of things.

Exercising. Finished week 1 of p90x. It was torture. I told Jonathan this morning that I don't think I can go on- in fact I told him I was quitting. Flat out. But in the next moment when my skirt fit a little more easily over my hips I thought twice. So maybe I'll keep it up. Maybe not. We shall see!

Calling people. Anyone that knows me knows that I am NOT a phone person except when it comes to a select few people, my husband included. I made a few phone calls to some friends and family members that I needed to talk to, and it was so worth it.

Sewing. It's so therapeutic (for the most part). I made another dress for C and have lots of fabric for future dresses. I love to outfit the kids in matching get-ups for Sunday. They are just way too cute not to be matching :D

Almost moving and then not. J accepted a job across the country, and a few days later we felt that it wasn't right for us- so he called them back and told them no. By that time I had already turned in our 30 day notice, found an apartment and sent in the deposit, made moving arrangements and was so close to buying plane tickets. We even started packing. But the Spirit was strong and we knew he needed to pursue the job hunt. (ps-I hate the hunt. The hunt can stick it where the sun don't shine for all I care.)

And here are some pictures of miss C, since I know that's all that the grandparents want to see :]

Until next time! It could be a while...

So happy to see your post. I love catching up on you and your beautiful family! I am absolutely sure that the lord has a plan for you guys and you will love it once you get there. For now just enjoys the kids and that beautiful state that you are in. I am so sad we don't have wonderful places for fruit here in arizona. Good for you taking a break from virtual life to do other things. I am thinking that may be in store for us once I finish the current class I am in. The computer sucks you in and then sucks you dry so to speak. Can't wait to see another post maybe this time next week you will have more pretties to share. The kids are getting so big and look super happy. I love their sunday outfits every time you share a new one. You are all in our prayers and just know you rock momma! Moving and a job will work out when it's right. :D

Totally understand how the hunt can suck. We're back in the hunt market and unfortunately it won't be a forever job. :( Something will work out for the best, just remember that. I only say that because I have to remember that too. We'll hopefully get to see you though. :)Love you, Jonathan, and the kids!
