A few days off

Wow I haven't worked all week! I love the snow. It is beautiful, fun to play in and makes the cold worth it! Plus I haven't worked at all this week. It's not that I don't have plenty to do in the office :) especially since I am leaving for the Chair's beach retreat tomorrow morning but what ever, I am not going to get bent out of shape about it! I haven't updated in a while. Not alot going on just the usual. I think I am getting back into the swing of things at work (well I was until this week :)) We have been able to enjoy several opportunities with family and friends over the last month. This is how it should be. Not to mention that we painted our house! that is a big deal since we have been trying to pick out a color scheme for like 2 years! It really looks amazing. I love that we got it finished so quickly too. We pretty much didn't fuss with each other and I think we both enjoyed the work. I will try to add pictures if I can figure out how. (Emilie you didn't show me :) :)) Speaking of need to do a whole post with your message from Sunday Night, I have heard from several how great of a job you did. And Brent is absolutely crazy for doubting himself. He has an amazing voice!!!!! You guys Rock for real!!! Thanks for letting us use you. I am looking forward to the Saturday night showing of Fireproof. I hope we have a great turn out. It has been neat seeing people get pumped up at church when we do a campaign. I hope they don't get discouraged just because all the people they invite don't come. I know God is working on their hearts! Never give up! Well I am off to enjoy this final day off :) what a sweet blessing it has been. Later friends......speaking of friends .....Lynn it was great having girl time with you today!

New Year

I can't believe it's 2009! I was blessed with almost 2 whole weeks off. I took a sort of sabbatical and I must say I am refreshed! Been back at work since yesterday and I think I am finally getting into the hang of things today. Been pretty productive (up until now) :) I need to keep this pace. I took some time over the break to examine some of the distractions that add to my stress and I am trying to scale down on the amount of time I spend on things. So far it seems to be working well. I also realized over break how important it is for me to make more effort to spend quality time with family and friends. I think its the puzzle piece in my life that I am really missing. I keep poring into others and don't leave enough time to fill up my own tank so I am making a real effort to change that.

We got our coffee table and end table for christmas and then afterwords found a great rug, pillows and piece of art for the wall. This is such a big deal! I haven't done anything to the living room in the 2 years that we have lived there. haha I kept saying it looks like we just moved in. I think we are getting closer and closer to a paint choice! who would have thought it would be so difficult! but the decision is almost done!

Well that's an update for ya!
