Well halloween is nearly here! Anora will be trick or treating as a "friend of Tinker Bell" She's excited!
While i look like a halloween mask. Something has happened to my nose. It's either some new achne I've never had before or an infection under my skin. It has lasted a little over a week now. The swelling has gone down but it still looks like I've been in a car accident.

Jeremy got his mid term grades and has all a's. No surprise, but it makes life a little easier to get up and go to work in the morning.

My birthday was Saturday and we went out for dinner to a buffet and then a play at Jeremy's college. The best part was that I got to sew for several hours in the morning. I'm working on a quilt for a good friend. I'm cheating a little though cause, most of hard work has already been done by aunt, a lot is her left overs.

Blessings, please pray for the safety for all the farmers!

sickness sinking in...

Well, Anora is officially sick! We kept her home Sunday to rest and be on decongestants. She seemed ok this am so we sent her to school, but alas school called 11:30 to come and get her. So I caught Jeremy between classes, and he rushed home. He was able to pick her up and gog her directly to the Dr. Dr. figures she has the flu and a definite ear infection. So no more school tomorrow either. I'll stay home in the am to let Jeremy give a speech in Speech class and then I'll get off to work.
Part way through the day I started feeling pretty rotten myself, but some sugar and fresh air helped a lot.

I have been pretty flippant about the flu s setting in, but please do pray for all the little kids who are sick, including Anora.

What an aweful week

So I'm trying to get back into the habit of updating my blog again. Thank you all for continuing to check while I neglected the page.

This weekend was good, we got a lot of chores done, and had a really nice Saturday with family at my aunt & uncle's cabin.

Then Sunday was spent with housework and homework.

But come Monday things slipped out of control.
While getting more time cards from my temp agency, the starter went bad, and left me there. The people at the agency were really good though. First, a fella came to help me try to jump the truck, no luck since it wasn't the battery. Then the gal that hired me, drove me to work. Jeremy came to the rescue after school to fix and replace the starter in the parking lot, What a guy, not everyone would do that. While our friend Lauren took Anora after school, letting Jeremy fix the truck. Wow, it's great to have help on an awful day. Then to top off the day, my bill for Life insurance arrived, ohh, forgot those were coming. I was hoping my job would be paying enough extra to take care of that by now, but no. Jeremy's should arrive soon too.

But then Tuesday morning Anora woke up saying she was sick. Though she didn't have a fever she did look and sound bad, so we tag teamed the day. Jeremy went to school for 2/3 classes and a test and I got most of my day in at work.

So finally on Wed I had a pretty good day and no major tragedies. What a relief.

Now, today is Thursday and my closet broke. It's a cheap fix, but still a kick to the shins.

Hope your week goes better than mine.

Please pray for my little friend Hunter trying to fight an infection and on prednisone. Pray for his Mommy too.

alls quiet

I'm sorry it's been so long since I've updated this blog.
Thing are ok, but very busy.
This week our big news is a visit from Jeremy's brother. It's been a really wonderful visit. He's had a true look at our lives from church to Bible study, to a day out on the town with us. He leaves soon, and we'll all be sad. The house will once again be too quiet.

Anora is enjoying school. She has gotten some grades in and is those are looking good. She had school pictures taken last week, and we're in the middle of a school fundraiser. If you feel like shopping, you can do it online and I can give you her account info.

I went with my Mom to the Cedar Rapids quilt show. I was in awe! I figured i would be there a couple hours, but it was more like 5 hours. I loved them all, and I took pictures to give me inspiration. Now I just need the material and time.

Work is ok. It seems steady, and I'm getting use to the hours. I like my co workers well enough. I'm counting the days though till moving. We kinda looking at the move like a temporary finish line.

School is great for Jeremy! He's getting good grades, and hasn't fallen behind. But there is a lot of home work. I like helping him with it and studying for quizzes.

Gotta get back to work, thanks for your prayers!!
