so i thought the match funds were only yesterday with One Day's Wages to fund Diana's project in Uganda. but i was wrong! and i am SO GLAD i was wrong! we have until FRIDAY to have our donations matched! YAY!!!! this is totally possible. it's $5000 to fund Diana's water project. ALL we have to raise is $2500 because One Day's Wages will match our donations up to $2500. Diana remembers the exact moment she wanted to become an engineer. She felt such helpless frustration, standing there, only four-years-old, watching the adults in her village scratch their heads. Their... Continue reading

The Adventure Project! I have worked together with The Adventure Project in many different ways... building wells for cleaner water, building stoves for cleaner air, getting irrigation pumps to farmers to help increase their income and provide more jobs, and training women to become health care providers for thier community to teach other women proper health care for children and themselves. ALL such WONDERFUL causes! And together with YOU we have raised A LOT of money to help in some A W E S O M E ways! today i wanted to call attention to an AMAZING woman in Uganda... Continue reading

yesterday between my boys' basketball games i ran into Joann's. on both sides of town. and michaels. that pom pom yarn was on clearance for .97! score. it will be so much fun to use! the fabric is all from Joann's too. In fact... i bought nothing at michaels this time. waffle got his hair cut again. i like him so much more when his hair is short. he just feels cleaner. i am not sure if he is... but it seems like it. still no eggs. but i know it won't be long now. :) have you seen this...

i heard this at church last week. i believe it. God is messing with mine for sure. I have heard so many awesome stories of giving and growing and hope this week. And last week it felt like it was the opposite. Every whereI looked was hurt and sorrow and divorce and pain. I needed this week to restore my soul. I want whatever character traits God wants me to have. Even if its hard. And I know it will be. Change is always hard. But the rewards.... Oh so worth it. A closer relationship with God is always worth... Continue reading

so yesterday while we were at the indoor pool it was raining again for the fourth day (? i think) in a row. but it was REALLY raining hard. i decided we needed to go home becuase of the creeper couple that came to the hotel pool and was not going to stop making out even if we were in the room. driving home was NUTS. everything was flooded. my kids were yelling and so excited! Annie yelled "THIS IS AWESOME!!!!" i yelled back "NO THIS IS NOT AWESOME! EVERYONE CHILL OUT! I NEED TO DRIVE SO WE DON'T CRASH!"... Continue reading

i am not happy with the internet at my house. every photo takes F O R E V E R to up load. and i have a bajillion pictures to upload. we are winding down with summer over here. my kids go back to school in two weeks! i have been on a little health journey... all year but especially since the half marathon. bottom line: eating healthy and working out takes TIME. it's kind of annoying. planning ahead what you are going to eat.... figuring out how to work in an hour-ish of exercise. it's working but i just...
