Oh and ...

Something else I am thankful for is my hormone level is finally back down to normal as of this weekend. I am very thankful that my body took care of everything for me naturally and that I do not have to keep going back for blood work seeing as I am a big baby and I hate needles :)

Monday Again

  "It's Monday again!" I feel like I am always saying this. . . every other day. ha ha Weekends fly by and Mondays come so fast.

  We are officially moved out! Which means we have our bins of clothes moved from the camper to the house we are renting. lol We made a trip to Market Basket to get our week of groceries plus all of the other staple foods we will need and condiments. I am trying to be excited about cooking this week. I AM excited about cooking, just not super excited after being gone for 12 hours a day. Also we are going to start going to the gym after work. I am also excited about that, just not super excited :) If I make it 1 day this week I will be as happy as a clam.

  Kurt's friends came down from Maine to visit for the weekend. The new xbox game is out and they wanted to stay up all hours of the night to play it both Friday and Saturday night. Now, I am pretty tired Friday night and exceptionally cranky on prednisone (haha) but if it is one thing I have learned is that my man needs to be able to have guy time once and a while, just like I need time with the girls... So we stayed up early into the morning Friday and Saturday night. Something else I have learned is important is being willing to do the things he loves. Like play the xbox. Even if it is frustrating to die every 5 seconds because I am so bad at it. haha. It is really great to see him be able to relax and have fun. Being a kid once in a while doesn't hurt anything :)

 God has been so good to me and there is so much to be thankful for. I am very thankful for my job! I had my one month here on Thursday and everything has been going great and I am very comfortable. We are staying in a really cute and cozy home for the winter!  I can breathe! We are together!  And we have food to eat! :)

by the way.. .

I forgot to mention how during the hurricane the telephone poles in front of our house(about 5 or 6 of them) snapped in half and fell across the street. It was a mess with all of the wires and we could not get out. Without power Monday & Tuesday. Thank you to Kyle & Amelia for bringing us over Monday (we could not get our car out of the driveway!) and letting us stay the night. And taking me and Kurt to work the next day! Great sister and brother-in-law :)

My Week & Moving Out

We had a campfire and hayride at my families house last Friday night. Then a harvest dinner and conference over the weekend. It was great to see the Browns again and also great to be challenged by Pastor Brown as he spoke on Service. It feels like my weeks pass by so crazy and I barely have time to catch up on what I need to on the weekend. I don't get to serve as much as I would like to and am going to work on putting more of an effort in.

I had hoped to post sooner, but the internet has been down at my work all week due to the hurricane. Needless to say it has been a very LONG week working with very frustrated fellow employees.

I have been coming down with something and was starting to have a very hard time breathing Tuesday night. My inhaler wasn't helping at all so I took the neb a few times overnight. I love my job, but the one thing is I am the only Receptionist/Administrative Assistant so if I call out there is no one to fill in. Someone here has to quit what they are doing for the day and do my job. Great way to make friends! lol Seeing as I called out last Wednesday I really couldn't this Wednesday, I barely breathed my way through through my day taking my inhaler every half hour or sooner. Urgent care right after work. I am on the neb as much as I can be when I am home and am on Prednisone. Now that I am starting to get all of the icky yellow infection to come up out of my lungs (that is what the prednisone helps with), I hope to get over this very quickly.  My body is a complete failure lately.

We are going to be renting from a couple in our church that go to Florida for 6 months of the year. They normally winterize their house and have their kids check on it frequently, shovel the driveway, etc. They offered it to us to rent a couple of months ago and we have been thinking on it. We had decided it is the best move when I found out I was pregnant, and we are sticking with that decision now. We will obviously have to be paying for storage on top of it and all of our utilities there, but it comes out better then renting on our own.  We are trying not to get ourselves in a situation where we are in over our heads and not able to make it if I can't work full time down the road. Hopefully we can figure out a more permanent situation by spring. I can't wait to have all of my stuff out of storage again. Yes, I acutally miss my furnature, and paintings, and books, and cooking utensils, and all of those other silly things.

So here is my long blog post to start off November. God has given me a strength I did not know I had to get through these past couple of weeks. He shows me His blessings in my life everyday.

We are moving out on the 10th, and then Thanksgiving is right around the corner!
