What kid doesn't love to unroll the toilet paper!?

This is me! April 2005
Cool! I have a blog! I wanted to start this for several reasons. I wanted a "family gathering" type place where I could tell stories about the kids and post recent pictures or scrapbook pages. I also wanted to be able to write things that I would probably never say. And I wanted to journal now and scrapbook later and this is a good place to keep up with that.
I feel like there are going to be a lot of good changes for us this year. I have a few ideas as to what that may entail but only God really knows. I'm hoping one of those good changes is that Matt gets that job at Eastman. That's one of the wonderful things about serving God. When you put your life in His hands you don't have to worry about having a big plan and having it all figured out. You trust in Him and He gives you hope - that things will be better because He loves you and has many promises for you in His word.
I also am hoping another good change is that I will actually get my act together and do what I'm supposed to do. Some people thing I have this Christian thing down pat but going to church and living it every day are two very different things. My motto for this year is DECIDE. Decide to take control, decide not to wallow or be depressed but to pray when I feel bad even though I REALLY don't want to. Decide to be pro-active and not procrastinate. It's surprising how many times I've already told myself to DECIDE since I came up with that. I think I got the idea from a Wednesday night church service by the way.
Anyway, this is my first post! I hope that this will help bring me out of my comfort zone and give people more insight into who I am. And I think this will help me figure that out too.
