(I have wondered if Shayden has been eating all the fruit puffs I put on her walker or if Shadow helped. I just watched & Shadow helps:)!! He is quite sneaky about it too...
It is also time to get back on track...to cleanse my soul. I have felt rather disconnected from God for a little while. I haven't lost track of the right road...I have just been walking along beside it...on a parallel path, if you will. I think our preacher describes it as a "spiritual slump." I am ready to get back on the RIGHT road. I have neglected my time with God...not altogether but certainly haven't been spending ENOUGH time with Him. That has caused me much guilt because I DO know that everything we have comes from Him...nothing of mine actually belongs to me. And when I don't spend enough time talking to him, praying, & just worshiping Him then everything goes a litle crazy. I NEED Him...I need to talk to Him, I need to just be in His presence. So...today is the day...if it means going to bed later, then that is what it has to be. Having said all of this, tomorrow WILL be a better day,...:)!!

Now Katie will learn just how hard being a woman truly is...how do we balance kids with work? OH & let's throw in keeping a husband happy, & a house clean, and social obligations. And somehow amongst all that, science says we should excercise 30 mintues a day...uh huh...when would you like me to do that? Maybe when I get up with my kids the second time I should just run into the living room & do 400 jumping jacks!!!! Society says we can have it all but can we really?!?! I only work part time & it is stressful to balance. Shayden has a fever & has thrown up twice...I have to work in the morning. Brad can't take off or it will cost us $250 in commision....what do I do? The answer is....I don't know. I can't really take off....people depend on me to be there. YIKES!! Please pray for my baby girl....I am praying that it is just a 24 hour thing. I know God will handle it...I am just venting.....
I will try & post pictures later!!!
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE PRAYERS:)!!!

We had a wonderful weekend. We went to mom & dad's on Friday & played cards. We got up Saturday & went to a few garage sales....YEA, it is garage sale season!!! We shopped some & then went to church. After church, we met with Jennifer & Billy for a night out downtown. LOTS OF FUN!! Dancing, adult beverages, sushi, watching drunk people dance:)...we had a good time!
My computer went to the doctor on Friday, which means we should be able to post pictures SOON:)!! We called to check on it & the doctor told us it is VERY sick but they are getting there. We had FOUR trojan viruses AND spyware that they are having trouble with. No wonder it was running a little slow...:).
Good night all!!!

I did NOT go to Wal-mart OR Albertson's for balloons!! I went to Party City. It was a little further but ALbertson's was double the price & I figured that the amount of time it took me to drive to Party City would be the same as waiting at Wal-mart. I also bought the stuff for Shayden's birthday party. I don't normally plan THAT far in advance but it was all on clearance...whoo hoo!!
Well, I have worked all day today so I am off to bed...toodles:)!!

Thanks Jennifer...you know, smart people sometimes annoy me:)!!!
We went to Walmart today & I am amazed at the lack of customer service. I mean, I have blogged on it before, but it is just plain ridiculous. They have moved the balloons to layaway, but closed layaway & don't keep people back there, & when you finally track someone down for help, they have to call someone. And that someone has to come from customer service at the front of the store & she is the only one up there & the only one that can do balloons. OH, & we don't actually HAVE balloons, you have to go up front & get the bags & pay for them & THEN bring them back here....& if you stand on your head while eating a banana, and sing Happy Birthday, THEN we'll air them up for 25 cents a piece?!?!?! SHEESH!!! Needless to say, I am going to price them at Albertson's tomorrow...
When we left, I also was amazed at how rude our society is becoming. Not once, but twice, while trying to exit the parking lot, two different cars honked at someone else. None of it was directed at me but come on....have a little patience!!!! I get frustrated too but COME ON!!!!
I am off to be a domestic goddess...:)

I usually get on & just say hi. I am planning on a Baker family update soon...pictures & all...aren't YOU excited?!?!?:)
I hope everyone has a FABU weekend!!

In case you failed to notice, yesterday was VALENTINE'S DAY!! Last year I deemed it a commercial holiday destined to make people feel bad. I stand by that to some degree but have realized that like anything, you just have to have the right mindset. I was humbled by the many V-day cards we got in the mail and have decided that any holiday that spreads LOVE, "the greatest of these," cannot be all bad. Love is something that is meant to be shared with EVERYONE...God commands it, so I have decided Valentine's Day is all in the interpretation. No feeling bad because you are single...it should not be a holiday for "couples." It should be a holiday about spending time with loved ones...ALL loved ones. And God sent the best Valentine in the world...his son, Jesus....
Share the love, people...share the love!!

Isn't it amazing how you can be having an amazingly smooth day & then one person says the absolute wrong thing & then everything begins to snowball?!? That happened today around 4:30...I am still upset.
I am having trouble with Bishop....he is talking back & not listening at all. I don't know how to handle it & Brad & I can't get on the same page about it. It's awful & I cannot stand the tantrums....oh, they are awful. There is nothing more wonderful than having both kids screaming at the same time & wondering what to do.....can you tell it has been a bad evening?!?!?!
Hot shower here I come....
Sunday, February 11, 2007
I still am not going to post pictures...it takes a while & I have MUCH to do before bedtime. I got one kid in bed, one to go. And then I have to get my bed cleared off. I am the kind of person that would say FORGET IT & sleep on the couch but Brad is not. I was going to put off grocery shopping until Tuesday so I could get everything put away but since we are out of diapers AND wipes, I don't think I can. And let's not forget the Valentine's I have to get ready for Bish AND work &...the list goes on. But you know what...I LOVE MY LIFE:)! I love it....I love to stay busy, I love it! It is crazy & hectic and sometimes stressful & rarely perfect. I have to work hard at my marriage...my kids drain me most days & don't even get me started on the house, but I love my life...thank you LORD!!!!
Speaking of houses, we are thinking about putting ours on the market.......

It has been a LONG day. I hate being this tired...it changes my outlook. It makes me sit & worry about things that I know I shouldn't. It makes me pessimistic & grouchy. I NEED SLEEP. Shayden woke up every 30 minutes last night & I have no idea why. She kept grabbing her ears so I took her to the doctor & no ear infection. I am at a loss....I am open to ideas, ladies.
Because I am moody, I don't want to blog much. I don't want it to turn in to a pity party:). Adios....
