My mind that is. I guess the real blessing is that my mind is fully funtioning, so Praise God!! Yesterday morning I was watching TV church (side note...we have GOT to find a church home...I feel like a heathen that my boys aren't established in a church...I am glad that they know the Lord through us and that we sit and talk often about the Lord and his word) and Pastor Dale Bronner reminded me that Fear is not failure, Quiting is failure. It is so simple, yet so profound. As a family, we are facing/working through some financial difficulties. Even though there are MANY TIMES I just want to quit and give in to failure, I THANK GOD that Ivan and I have the drive and determination to go forward if for no other reason than our boys.
Please don't think of this a "whoa is me" because I know that I have a tremendous amout of gratitude for all of the Blessings I have. I guess I was moved to have a testimony!! Speaking of blessings...here are some that I am most proud of...My babies!
Our Outing on the 4th of July...Fireworks at Arbor Place Mall, Douglasville, GA
Dylan wondering..."Why are we out soooo late at night and I'm allowed to have snacks?!?!?"
Evan has waited (according to him) all his life to sit on top of the truck! Mind you, he's just 10!!
Kyle flashing that winning smile to me and Dad. I am certain that he is more than happy to have his turn in the "Da rita" bag!!
My 3 Sons!!! You couldn't pay Evan to think he is anything but FIONE...Lord, what am I going to do? Secretly...I know he is...so who really created the monster? LOL!!
I wish I had focused a little better for this shot! This is truly my little STINKER!!!!
I have soo many layouts to share with you all. I am going to wait until we return from our vacation and create more layouts from those pictures. Thank you for reading and your inspirations as well.

We had a great 4th of July. I BBQed via the George Foreman Grill and then we headed to Arbor Place Mall in Douglasville to watch the fireworks. It was better than I expected. Although I do miss the Detroit fireworks, we only saw them on TV because there was/is no way in the hell I nor my family was/is going Downtown Detroit to fight the crowds for fireworks!!! If I figure out how to upload flickr pixs in this entry, I'll show you the fun the kids had. Take care!!

I am so TUD (a term meaning Tired, Underappreciated, and whateva you want for the D!) but at least I can honestly say TUD in a good way. My intentional means for this blog was to go on and on about my daily happenings and what not, but chile I have no time to even do that!! I am stealing time away from a power point presentation I am working on to secure a career opportunity that I have been dreaming of for so long (if I figure out how to share it with you all, i will...add that to the "to do" pile).
I WANNA SCRAPBOOK!!!!! yes, consider that screaming/whining/etc.! Thankfully I have different subject matter to make scrap pages for since many of my friends, family, coworkers, and sorors are poppin' out babies like there is no tomorrow. I am anxiously awaiting some pixs to arrive in the mail so that I can Scrap 'em!!
My interview is on the 16th, so please squeeze in a prayer for me. I have alot going on after that interview as we prepare for our family vacation, so maybe it will be a cause for extra celebration. I am going to sign off for now and carry myself to bed. I am sure I've got to fight off a brother, since the "headache" excuse has only worked the last 2 request from him. Sorry I had to go there and maybe we'll get into that discussion later...but really...I feel like I'm just mattress wrestling...ugh!!!
