But, since I was ignoring it today, I've had a nice day. We had ladies bible study this morning, it was nice. I think I mentioned before that it's on rejection and I still have a lot of thinking, praying and soul searching on this subject, so right now I'm not going to even try to put it in words. There is a knowing in my spirit that when this study is complete that I will be changed by what God is showing me. He loves me, so what anybody else thinks or doesn't think should not matter, I want to be in that place....so here's to getting there!!
After bible study I went by my parents to see their new RV and to check out little Daisy's new haircut. She doesn't look like a baby anymore, she's moved into the teen years, with blue bows and all. She's is just so irresistably cute and sweet, you just want to eat her up.
I left there and had to acknowledge Gustav long enough to go to the office and input a request to MEMA for a generator for one of the smaller towns in Hinds County. As I was leaving Rocky called to tell me the battery was dead on the MONSTER truck. This meant the trip I was fixing to make to Hobby Lobby was squashed. I went to deer camp, picked him up and we went home. I made a birthday card or 2 (cause its almost my sister's birtdhay!!) and then we headed to Hobby Lobby. Since his issue spoiled my trip, he told me he'd take me out there. I love that store, they have awesome sales! I got some cardstock paper stacks and a 13x13 self healing mat. I'm trying to stock up on paper since we are going to Crop Connection, the more stuff I stock up on now, the less $$$ I have to have when the time comes.
We left HL and drove over the spillway headed to Red Lobster for Joey's Birthday dinner. It was good and we had a good time. We were going straight from there to the races, but I decided I really wasn't up to it tonight, so he dropped me off and headed out. Now I'm fixing to go take out these contact lenses get comfy and snuggle up with my dog and a book and just kick back. I'm going to try and stay up as late as I can. I have to work on changing my sleep habit because as of right now come Monday I'll be working 12 hours shifts 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. until this Gustav situation is over. I hope that will be very quick!!

There are not many times that we have a picture taken of just the 4 of us.
This was taken at mom's 60th Birthday Party.
These pictures were taken at youth camp in the summer of 2008.
This is self explanatory...he is my LOVE KITTY!
Mitchell was baptized on July 20, 2008 in a swimming pool

When we got home I prepared the food for our family gathering that evening. It was a nice evening, we were un-celebrating my Uncle's 50th birthday. He didn't want a big shin-dig so we got together and had some great food, good conversation and enjoyed each others company. I forgot my camera for the Natchez trip, but I remembered it for the evening, so here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.......

Enough of that, I just finished my layout for the weekly design team dare/challenge at ASF. We had to create an embellishment with chipboard and dress it up. I made a photo corner, covered it with patterned paper, added a small metal embellishment that says "me & you" and a flower. Voila...challenge COMPLETE.
Top Left: You don't choose your family, they are God's gift to you, as you are to them.There is hidden journaling behind the picture (you can pull it out from the right side). It says: This picture was taken at the Mother-Daughter Tea hosted by Harvest Family Church in May 2005. We had a great time and I was glad my mom was there with me.

Still no change in my weight, at least I am managing to maintain, but it's time to pull it together and get things moving in the right direction. I am focusing this week on only eating when my body tells me it is hungry and trying to find the "point of satisfied/full". I have spent so many years destroying that natural mechanism that God created within me and this past Sunday at church the message was based on the scripture that says "my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge". As the message came out the reality of it was that its not that the knowledge is not available its that we choose not to use it or acquire or we just plain ignore it. I have the knowledge available to me to be healthy and lose weight, yet I sit back and ignore it and therefore am destroying my body due to a lack of walking in the knowledge that has been provided to me. So, it is my desire to use this knowledge and lose this weight! I will not quit, I will not give up, I will not be destroyed!!

Had to use: 5 patterned papers, 5 ribbons, 5 stamps, 5 embellishments & 5 fasteners
It's a little busy for my tast and I think my pictures kind of got lost in all the "stuff" and the colors. This might actually be my very first "redo" but I'm gonna leave it for now and see how I feel about it in a week or so. I may decide by then that it's okay and just be glad 2 more pictures have been scrapped.
The pictures were taken on our cruise in February 2008. One of the nights in the dining room the dance staff had us all up and dancing, it was so much fun, even if I have no idea how to do the Macarena and was at least one if not 2 steps behind every body else. It was great to see even Rocky get up and dance.
My eating is out of hand, my scale thankfully has not budged, I'm still stuck at 275 and in reality I'm not even sure why it has not budged in the upward motion, but I won't complain. Not sure just how long my body will allow it to stay the same, so I really have to find my way back to restraint. Not sure why it's been so hard to get focused, but it has. As always I will prevail, just not sure which day that will begin. Sigh.
Nothing more to say for now.
