Well, Thanksgiving is over. We made it to and from Texas safely, and we had fun while we were there too. Although it took 16 hours to drive there- That part stunk. It was great to see my mom and Rick, and to meet my step-siblings (Who were awesome by the way). I also meet a step aunt, and some step cousins. :) My step siblings and Eugene and I got along great. We're a lot alike actually. Katie is the youngest, She is a year older than me, and her husband is a year older than Eugene (making them 25 & 27). Her and I had a lot in common. The next one is Sara(h) I'm not sure if she has an H or not. Her and her husband, Steven, are 26 or 27. She is pregnant and due in June. The oldest is Jason, him and his wife, Misty, are 30. We all hung out on Friday, and all but Sarah and steven hung out on Saturday before we left. On Saturday we had Texas BBQ, A.K.A. brisquet, or something like that. It was good. Saturday we left and started our 16 hour drive home. We drove for 8 hours, then stopped at a truck stop and slept for 6 hours, then drove the rest of the way.
Anyway, Now I am at work and I must get busy!!! talk later! Hope you had a great thanksgiving!


Just want to wish everyone a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! Today Eugene and I are setting out for Texas to go visit my mom for the Holiday. I am going to meet my step-siblings. I think I have three, two sisiters and a brother, but I'm not sure. It is going to be a long drive, 15 hours or so. UGH. oh well. Now I have to work. Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for reading my blog! and Thanks for being my friend, asuming you are not one of those weirdo's who read random peoples blogs and you stumbled upon mine by accident. :) bye!

Incredible Weekend.

I absolutely hate When you have an awesome weekend, then you realize that it's over and you have to go to work!!! If you read my post from Friday afternoon you know that I got a dozen long stem red roses delivered at work with a card that said "Meet me outside at 5:00" and I think I explained that Eugene has been planning some surprise for our anniversary (which isnt until the 29th). Well this weekend was the big surprise; and it was great! I went outside after work and he was there waiting for me in his car. I got in and he blindfolded me and we drove about 20-30 minutes. If you have never been blindfolded while riding in a car- it is an interesting experience... Anyway, we arrive wherever we are- I have no clue of course, all I know is that I was more aware of my suroundings through my hearing than ever. We were on gravel, I knew that. He told me I had to sit in the car with the blindfold on while he took care of some things. He was gone for what seemed like forever, while I sat in the car wondering where we were and what he had planned. I was thinking of every possible place we could be. I never did figure it out. Finally he came back, and guided me into wherever we were... All I knew was that it smelled like an old person's house and they were cooking turkey. He told me to ignore the smell cuz we had to. I was clueless. Finally I could open my eyes- I was in a living room and there were rose petals on the floor, and candles lit. I still had to ask where we were, I was so confused. Anyway, my romantic husband had planned a romantic weekend, we were at a Bed and Breakfast! It was sooooo sweet!!! He bought all sorts of candles and had the place all romantic. He bought wine, and flowers, and rose petals... it was so nice. The best part of the place was the tub!!! it was this HUGE tub, with jets and everything. the tub was seriously HUGE!!!! it was the size of our whole bathroom! about 4 people could have laid down in it, and it was DEEP! it was so great! Then we went to the Ocoee River on saturday and hiked up to a waterfall. It was so pretty we took pictures, but we dont have a digital camera so when I get the film developed I'll post some pictures. We got some nice rocks for the turtle's tank and when we got home we set it up all nice and cute! Yah, it was a great weekend! So I dreaded coming to work this morning... oh well, it's still good. :)

Nameless turtles

Weird thing happened. When I ordered the turtles on Wed. I got UPS 2nd Day AM shipping, thinking they would arrive today, Friday... Then I got an email saying that they only ship on Tuesdays. So I thought I would have to Wait until next Thursday, which would have given me more time to get the tank ready. Then... Wed. night I had a dream that I got an email saying my turtles were shipped out and would be delivered on Friday. Didn't think anything more about it, except that I'm excited to get them, and then at work on Thursday I check my email and I had one from UPS saying that they were being shipped and would arrive on Friday! YAY!!! So anyway, my husband called an hour ago and my turtles arrived! YAY! So soon I will get to see my children. The thing that stinks is that we didnt get everything we need for the turtles yet, so tonight after work we have to go to PETCO to get a lamp and some other things for them! I'm so excited about my nameless turtles! Well, Lunch time! Talk later!

A dozen long stem roses

Some of you know my Birthday is on Monday, and my anniversary is on the 29th. Well my husband has had this big surprise planned and wouldnt tell me what it is. I got back to work this afternoon from lunch, and was working when I got called to the front desk... there was a box there with my name on it. I opened the card and it said Happy Birthday. Meet me outside at 5:00 pm. I opened the box and it was 12 beautiful long stem roses! Amazing what men can do! By the way.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY STACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


well, I finally got to meet my turtles, and we only had been watching them for 30 minutes when my husband declared that their names were Jacob and Esau cuz they will not leave each other alone. Esau is a little bit bigger than Jacob and more masculine I will laugh if he ends up being a girl. Jacob's shell is not as colorful or pretty as Esau's but they are wicked cute! I'm so excited. I just wanted to tell you all they are wicked cute and they have names.

one more today...

I dont know why I didnt just put all these blogs into one... oh well. I'm scatterbrained. The song Concrete Angel is playing from the radio in another cubical. it makes me cry. I love that song. If you dont know what I am talking about look it up. That's not what I was going to write though, I was going to tell you about the Acne Cure my brother-in-law told me about. As you both know I've suffered with bad acne all my life, well I still have a bunch of zits. Jason, my brother-in-law, used to have bad acne, they tried everything under the sun, his grandmother kept telling him to put egg yokes on his face and let it dry then wash it off. Well aparently he thought that was gross- which it is, and didnt try it. Finally after going through all the medications and every treatment you could think of, he tried the egg yokes. After only a few days, he was acne free! and he hasnt had problems since. Now I am trying it. I put egg yoke on my face last night for the first time, my face has never felt so soft. This morning when I woke up, my face was less greasy, and still soft. Also, for the first time ever, my face wasnt red! My face always has a reddish tint to it, I was a normal color this morning! it was awesome. Even my husband told me my face looks good today. YAY! I think it's going to work!

Have no fear, Underdog is Here!

Wait, it’s just me. Beth pointed out that it’s been five days since I posted last, well Beth, if I recall correctly you were missing for quite a few days too! Life has been Fun. I’m still waiting to hear about this becoming a real job, not just a temporary job. My sister-in-law, April came to visit this past weekend; she brought her daughter and two of our nieces. It was fun. I enjoyed their company. But now they are gone, and I am sad. Next Thursday my new baby turtles will arrive. YAY! I am getting two (they were buy one get one free!) BOGO. He he. I am having a hard time choosing names though, so if anyone has any ideas let me know. I was thinking Abbot & Costello, Laurel & Hardy, Snoopy & Charlie, Hansel & Gretel, you know, some famous couple names. Something fun. Got any ideas? I took lunch break while writing this and Eugene and I came up with the names Trigger and Happy. HE HE. But I’m still open for any new ideas. I was going to do a poll like Beth did for naming Olivia, but then I remembered she had some smart friend do that for her. Oh well!
While April and the girls were here we took them to the Ocoee River, where normally in the summer the dam is open and there are people rafting, but when the dam is closed the river is really low and you can climb on the rocks. So we did. However, Gabbie, the 5 year old was trying to throw a big rock in, she did it successfully but then when she was done, she was trying to sit back down on the rock, and slipped right into the freezing cold river. Me being over protective Aunt Jes, made her take off all her clothes and wear Eugene's hooded zip-up sweatshirt. That silly CPR, First Aid training had me paranoid about hypothermia. I made sure no one saw any parts of her body that shouldn't have been seen though. She was such a good sport about it. I would have thrown a fit until we went home; she said she wanted to go, but we convinced her that we could still have fun. She keeped on trooping. We had a bunch of fun.
Now I should get back to work, talk to you later! or should I say talk at you!

Believe- The band

My husband came home from band practice with some interesting news on Monday. The band is finished. They completed the work God wanted them to do as Believe. This made me very happy in a sad way. I know Eugene enjoyed it, but he is really peaceful about it being over. This means we will get to spend more time with each other! YAY!

Howdy Ho!

I get tired of coming up with titles for the posts. Sorry. Today is my husband's Birthday. YAY! That means we get to go have fun tonight, We're going to eat at Famous Daves... YUMMY. Then I think we will go bowling or something silly like that. T'will be fun. I dont have any amazing revolutions today, not even any cool thoughts or ideas. Sorry. I have been working in a different department the past couple days, and there is a big possability that I could be hired on in this department. that would be nice. Anyway, I just wanted to say HI!

Loving loving God vs loving God.

I am doing a Beth Moore Bible Study with some Woman at my church and this past week during one of our days of homework it said something about how some people get so caught up in loving loving God, that they lose track of loving God. We are studying Jacob and it was talking about how he went from loving loving God, to just Loving God (which is what we want to do.) At first he was caught up in the things loving God would give him, basically getting God's blessings. Then after about 20 years and working for his uncle he finally realized what Loving God is. Well, in our small group one of the ladies said it was like people now days who get so caught up in doing things for the church and with the church that they lose sight of loving God. That's when it hit me- that's me. Not that I am thinking that works will get me into Heaven, or that I need to do things to make God happy, and not that I dont love God anymore, Just that I thought it would be nice to help out in one area, then in another, then in another. Now I am so busy doing things at church I forget the reason I am supposed to be in church is to love and praise God. Now I am so busy i dont have time to breath and I'm burnt out meaning I dont give 100% to anything, not even the area God really wants me to serve in. Heck, I dont even know what area that is. Now I get the task of praying really hard that God shows me which areas to stay in, and which areas to let other people take over. Yup, that's what I learned. now I have to work.

Beth AND Stacy

Ok, I have come to the realization that you two are either the only two people who love me, or the only two people who know I have a blog. HE HE. but thanks for caring enough to read my boreing ramblings and post comments so I know you care. How sweet! I love you Stacy, and I loke you Beth! This weekend was not long enough. Friday night Eugene was in West Virginia playing a show, while I was home alone. You would think that since he was gone all summer I would be used to sleeping alone, but there was soemthing weird and different about Friday night. I was really excited to sleep alone, and spread out over the whole bed; then to be able to sleep in Oh it was going to be great. So at about 10, I went back to the bedroom and started reading "Live Like A Jesus Freak" well, there were weird noises, and dogs kept barking- I live in a trailer park in the middle of no where, it's kinda creepy. So, after about an hour of reading, I decided I would try to go to sleep. So I turned off the light and fluffed my pillow. I decided I was a little creeped out, so I started praying as usual. After about 30 minutes of praying I was almost asleep when something woke me up. I opened my eyes and just happened to be looking down the hall. Well, I noticed that on the wall in the hall there was a weird bluish light, kinda swirly- with different shades of blue. I immediatly thought my eyes were being weird so I rubbed them, blinked and looked again. it was still there. So I started thinking about what window a light could be shinning in to make the light on the wall. There was none. So I thought- this is weird..... Next, I did the only thing I could think to do when weird things happen I said "JESUS!!!! JESUS!!!!!JESUS!!!!" before I got the first one out, the light went away. So.... that was weird. I decided to get up and put on Praise and Worship music. Well Eugene for some reason had all my CD's in his car, leaving me with his heavy music... fortunatly I found Third Day Offerings II and figured that would work. Well, it was about 12:00 now, and I still couldnt sleep. I was laying there praying and I started thinking "What if I just missed the rapture!!!" I dont know if you've ever had one of those moments where you're all alone and you just thinking out of the clear blue that Jesus has come and taken everyone away and for some reason you're still here. I have them on rare occasions. It didnt help that I couldnt get ahold of Eugene- he wouldnt answer his phone. Finally after about 30 minutes of that I realized it was a silly conclusion and couldnt have happened and it helped that Eugene called. So.... I decided to try the sleep thing once more seeing that it was now 1:00am. So I'm lying in my bed.... and my furniture starts creaping... I just stop and say "HEY CUT THAT OUT" and get back to my sleeping cuz I know that God is bigger and He's watching over me.... oh sorry.... Veggie Tales "God is Bigger than the Boogie Man..." anyway...... I'm lying in my bed, and I still can't sleep!!!! So I've been praying now for almost 2 hours straight, I decided I'll read my Bible. I open it up to Psalm 23, 24 and 25 and read. then I put my Bible OPEN on the bed right next to my head, and BAM, I'm asleep. it was so weird.
So Saturday morning I woke up at 8:30 I decided I would finish cleaning out the spare room cuz my sister-in-law, April and her husband and daughter are coming to visit this Friday, and our spare bedroom was the place where we threw everything that we didnt need when we moved in. It still had boxes of things that weren't put away. So I got that done, and went for a run, then showered, then went to Walmart, then did the dishes then Eugene came home. Then we went and cleaned the church. Hmmm.... I think that's it. No we did something else, cuz we were up late.... Oh I know, we had to practice the skit for KidStuf (our church's Sunday School program, we're both Characters in it.) Then Sunday Morning we had to wake up at 6:30, cuz he has Praise Team Practice at 7:30, at 8:30 we have a KidStuf meeting, and at 9:00 KidStuf starts. After church we went home and watched "Diary of a Mad Black Woman." it was funny, I liked it. Then we went back to church, Eugene's band Believe ( played a show at our church during the Youth service. It was kinda funny cuz their band is heavy, and our church is a bunch of preppy people. But that's ok, they did great. Then we had to go to Chattanooga to unload all the band equipment. It was another late night. When 6:15 came this morning, I could NOT get myself out of bed.... ugh. Hopefully tonight I will be in bed and asleep by 10:15. That is my goal. I would make it earlier, but I have Woman's Bible Study tonight. Life is busy!!!


This is a thanks to Stacy, the only person who ever reads my blog. She's faithful I think she checks every day to see if I have posted, and as you know, before Yesterday I hadnt posted since like August. So thanks Stacy! I love you soooo much. and I miss you! Hope you're having a great life even though you are busy..... :)

Data Entry/ Filing person/ gopher....

So I think I said I was working a temp job. Well it's actually Fun. The temp agency called me up In the 26th of September at 9:30 am and said they had a job that would last a couple days and it was data entry. So, I took it. Well, I am still here, 5 weeks later.... And I love it. Right now I am doing data entry, as well as anything else the two Renee's want me to help them with. I do a lot of Filing, which is fun to me, because I love organization. Well there is a possibility It may turn into a permanent job. If that is the case I would be taking on my own stores (as far as paying their bills, I work in the Accounts Payable Department) anyway, I would have my own states instead of just helping them with theirs. It would be awesome to have a full time reliable Job. So that's my biggest prayer request right now.
Eugene and I are probably going to go to Texas for Thanksgiving to visit my mom and her husband and meet our step-siblings. That will be awesome and fun. Eugene's Sister, April and her husband and Daughter, Gabbbie may be coming to visit us next weekend, I hope so I haven't seen them in a long time.
I will be turning the old age of 24 on the 21st, but Eugene turns 26 next Thursday so he's always going to be the old man. AND our anniversary is on the 29th, we will be celebrating three years of not killing each other! just kidding, we love each other and are very happy!!!
I am sooo glad it's FRIDAY!!! Although Eugene is in West Virginia playing a show tonight, so I will be alone, but that's ok. Anyway, it's 4:06 on a Friday afternoon and I am sitting at my desk surrounded by papers that need to be filed and data that needs to be entered, so I better get busy!!!
thanks for reading!!!

Word verification

There is this cool thing called Word Verification. It apparently keeps unwanted annoying spam comments from being able to post on my site. YAY FOR WORD VERIFICATION! I hope it works.

random commenting people

Have I mentioned that I hate when random people post comments on my blog. Totally random people who want to tell me about china and sex problems. it's dumb. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE, PLEASE DONT COMMENT. I dont mind if you are my friend and you want to comment about china or sex problems, but if I dont know you, keep your comments to yourself!

uh... it's november

Yah. it's november and I dont think I have posted anything since um... August? that's kinda bad... most of that has to do with the fact that I moved out of the house with internet and into a house with no internet. and lack of money causes us to get internet. but to make a very long story short (for now) My husband is home, both of the weddings are over now I am planning for one or two next year (Lindsay and her fiance and Lacyand Aaron). I am working a temp job which is where I have access to the internet, but only between people walking by to keep from getting in trouble. so that's my long story short. I'll write more later!
