This is life people

I did laundry last weekend.  I threw all the socks in the laundry basket and I still haven't sorted them and the basket is still on the floor.

I write how I talk, hence I know my grammar and punctuation is probably really bad.  Please don't judge me.

The cedar chest at the end of our bed is really nice and I'm really glad we have it.  BUT....we can't ever sit on it because it just catches all our clothes before we actually put them away once a week.  I's a terrible habit.

Our bathroom is grouted and caulked and ready for the final touches!!!!  The one thing that got messed up though was that even though we bought the grout and the caulk in the same color from the same brand, the caulk is noticeably darker than the grout.  It's really annoying, but what can you do I guess. Oh, you say we should just rip the caulk out and buy a shade lighter? can come do that for us if you want!

Today I did something that I felt God was calling me to do.  I found out two days ago that a girl I work with got behind on her car payments, but when she got the money to get caught up, she instructed her sister to take it to the dealership to pay and her sister forgot, then my coworkers car got repossessed. The fee for that was a little over $300. She's a young, single mom of 2 kids and when she told me that, she looked like she was about to cry, but also really mad at her sister.   Well anyway, I asked her today if she got it all sorted out, and she said she made the payment but still didn't have her car because she would still owe the $300.  I had told Stephen all about this and I just felt compelled to help her and pay the fee for her so she could get her car, be all caught up, and just move on and not have to worry about where she was going to get the money from.  She doesn't know I did this for her, and I suspect she may or may not figure it out, but that doesn't matter.  I just feel blessed that I was able to help someone in need.

Oh and one more thing.  I announced that Stephen will be starting an MBA program but I never announced that I got a new job.  I now work for the state of Oklahoma under the Oklahoma Health Care Authority.  I still work for Insure Oklahoma, just not has a contractor anymore.  I'm really happy that I've got a more secure job now and the pay increase is really nice as well!!

That's all the ramblings I have for today.

Our Announcement

This is a pretty big announcement.

Although, probably not what you were thinking it was going to be.

Tricked you!

Anyway, Stephen and I have talked about this for a while now and Stephen finally decided to just take the plunge.

Stephen is now officially enrolled in the MBA program at Oklahoma Christian University!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's going to get a specialized masters' in Marketing or Finance.   I'm already super proud of him and he hasn't even started classes yet, which start on Oct 22.  Each term is 6 weeks long and he'll be taking 2 classes (or 6 hours) of class in the first term.  Classes are on Monday and Thursday for 3 hours.  Depending on how things go, he'll be graduating in 1 - 1.5 years from now.

It's definitely going to be a bit of an adjustment to our lifestyle for a while, but we're both excited about this!

Today (acutally this was yesterday), my Whiz Kid Ashley guessed that I was 25 years old.  I told her that was wrong and then she guessed that I was 21.  :-)

Stephen and I also pick Ashley and her brother Joel up from their house before we take them to the tutor site.  One day they asked how Stephen and I knew eachother.  When we told them we were actually married they didn't believe us.

How do you explain to a third grader that the pural form of Moose is Moose?
