Getting back on track...

Lately, I have had so much on my mind and physically going on, I have become just a little disorganized. Yes, I will admit it, I am all over the place and that is nobody's fault but mine. One thing that has changed, I have gone back to work full time and I think my body has not adjusted to it yet. My classes have started back also and it's just a lot going on. There were so good and bad to being a S.A.H.M (Stay at home mom) but I am glad to be working again. Life is just a little better when you have two incomes coming in and it takes a lot of the pressure off of the other person in the house that was just bringing in the money.  I haven't even exercised in about a month and trust me, my body is telling me that it is ready to get back into the swing of things.

But I am determined to get back on track and stay there. Life is just so much better being on an organized system!

Well off I go getting back on track...

until next time...

My Sunday!

Okay today was a great day until it came to an end. Now, normally I would have several services to attend on a Sunday. It starts with 7:45 am service, at my husband's church. He is the choir director and I sing in the choir as well as work within other ministries of the church. When I leave there, I then go over to my church to sing. I sing on both the P&W (Praise and Worship) team and the choir. Some Sundays I would leave after I get done with P&W, and go back to church with my husband. Well today, was a little different. When we left, that was it for his church. So after I did what I had to do at my church, we left and went to his dad's church. His dad was on to speak for the regular service. Now, he is not a preacher, but he did do a really good job! Shocking, I was called up to sing during their P&W and the hubs was asked to do the prayer for the offering. Now that was totally different for him, but I was proud. Now, when we left their church, my wonderful in-laws treated us to Sunday dinner +Golden Corral. It was just nice to fellowship with them and relax after service.

Alright, here comes my interesting evening. We were suppose to go to another program but hubby met a guy about a car he is trying to purchase. See we are only on a one car system and it gets a little difficult at times, but God is good, and He sees us through. So we were in Columbiana to see the car and we also went for a nice Sunday drive. Now I'm thinking that we are going to go home after that adventure, nope, we went BACK to church.  We went to a reunion concert of one of his co-workers church and they sung several songs I knew. Now me being a music person, I truly enjoyed everything about the program. We didn't stay til the end but what I heard was GREAT. Now it is now about 8:00 pm and we still haven't made it home YET!!! (I'm sure you can sense the frustration now)

We make a stop at a fellow church/family member's home. Thankfully, she made a sweet potato pie, so it was all worth it in making that stop! We didn't stay long at her house but it was good to see them. So, now we are finally making our way to our lovely home. My mom texted me earlier to ask me if I was at home. Of course, I told her no and she stated to text or call her when I am there. Soooooooooooo, here comes the good part! I call my mom when I was about two minutes from my home, which is five minutes from her home. She tells me "hey, I have your dog". I was like Yogi? Because we already have a dog. She said no, your new dog. I was like I don't know anything about a new dog. I was thinking she was talking crazy because my step dad is afraid of dogs and don't like them so that was a BOLD move to even have them in the area of him. So we make a detour to her house and meet the new dog outside. I was honestly pissed off because we did not talk about getting another dog because we already have one. Well, to make this long story short, we have a new addition to our family and his name is Thunder. He is a mixed breed of german shepherd. Not sure of what the other breed is but guess who has a vet appointment this week...that's right Thunder! I will admit he is a cute little puppy and so far, Yogi (who literally runs the house), has actually welcomed him in. He has not barked loud and crazy nor has he tried to attack him. So maybe this a beginning to a life long relationship! And our family just grew.....

Until next time...


P.S. I saw a beautiful rainbow today but my crazy phone was not acting right and when the camera finally came up on my phone, we had passed it. Ugh I was so upset but oh well...things happen! :-)

My Mother's Day 2015

Today was absolutely great! I can truly say that it was nice to be treated and to be taken care of. I did get some gifts that I have been asking for. I got a brand new microwave, a brand new crockpot, and I got a beautiful bouquet of red roses. I love fresh flowers and they just look so pretty in your home. Also, my neighbor gave me a beautiful Brighton purse. It's my favorite colors: Pink, white, and black. I received a full course breakfast meal that was cooked by my two men (bacon, turkey smoke sausage, cheese grits, eggs, toast with grape jelly, orange slices, half of a banana, and nice glass of cranberry juice. That breakfast was delicious. I was personally escorted to the dining room table, by my husband and my son brought me my plate. I felt like a queen. Then we finished getting ready for church and off we went.

I went to church with my mom and took her a bouquet of roses for Mother's Day. I'm sure she was happy to see us all; my husband (her son in-law), my son (her first born grandson), and I. We had a great service and we took a couple of pictures after church. Unfortunately, my brother over slept so he missed church service.   :-(

Then we came home and I was able to put on some lounging clothes and let the male figures in the household cook for me. I did take a nap while they were cooking but it was worth the wait. My delicious Mother's Day meal was Bar-b-que pork, steamed cabbage, steamed squash, corn on the cob, corn bread muffins, and a nice cold glass of lemonade. It was delicious.

Then we went for a nice Sunday drive after dinner to relax and enjoy the sun setting and what a beautiful site it was. I didn't have my camera and my phone was dead, so I couldn't snap a picture. But maybe next time.

But overall, I have truly enjoyed myself on today! Time to get in bed and get ready for the work week. This one will definitely go down in the books for a great day!

Until next time,

Super Mom Salute!

As we know, Mother's Day is right around the corner. Actually, Mother's Day is everyday but the nation is taking one day out of the YEAR to SALUTE them ALL! I am a mother myself and I would not change it for anything in the world. I have been a mom for 14 years to a handsome young man that I love dearly. It's not easy but it's a true blessing. The dictionary states that a mother is a female that bears a child. But I think the mother is much more than just that. Example 1: A female that can't bear children but goes and adopt a child and becomes that child's parent. That woman spends half of her time taking care of that child to make sure he/she has a great life to live. Example 2: A female that doesn't adopt but connects with children and is always there when the child needs them. This child may not live with them but the thought and care that the female gives to that child can be and example of a mother. There are many more examples but I think you all see where this is going.

So this month, The Journey of Being a Wife is going to be doing special salutes to super moms. Let's showcase the ones that go up and beyond in what they do as a mother.  Stay tuned to all of the posts through out the month!!

Until next time...
