Babble Brain

Yeah, someone found my blog! I am a 32 yr. mother of three beautiful children and proud wife of my wonderful husband~ Matthew. I am blessed beyond my comprehension! I hope you too will be~ His gift is free if you receive. You have nothing to lose and all to gain! Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace that you are saved, through your faith -not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not by works, so that no one can boast.

Braeden's 7th B-day!!!

Am I crazy?? I am taking @ 6-7 kids bowling for Braeden's B-day and I'm not sure Matt will be off to help me!! But I had to plan it in order to get invitations out. Anyone want to help??? It's his 1st kid party ever, I'm such a mean mom I've never had a kid party for him yet! He's so deprived isn't he. I did not want that many boys at my house and have them running around or be bored but now I have to pay for it and it is not cheap!!! Seriously if there are any helpers out there give me a call!!! Wish me luck!!!

Purple Sky!!

Did anyone see the purple sky tonight?? It was beautiful!!

So Far the only option offered----

All the buy outs you are hearing about on the news leave out alot of detail.

We only qualify for $15,000 for 4 years for school and 1/2 of his pay then everything you worked for you sign off and all ties are severed.

Not even an option. He would still have to get a full time job for a whole lot less pay and go to school full time- not possible.

And even after 4 years of school he still would be at less pay.

I hope the Lord shows a better plan and soon!!!

Option #1

Option # 1- We could send Maddi to work!

I can't go ANYWHERE without everyone ohh and ahhh over her!!

I should mass mail her picture to baby companies.

This picture is almost a year old-hard to believe.
Her pigtails are past her shoulders now!!

Ford Maumee Closing-OH NO!!!!!!!!

When it rains- Yes it pours!!! Of course Matt works at Maumee stamping which is closing it's doors within a year and they always do it quicker than they said they would.

God is sure testing our faith!! I believe he has a better plan for us but how will we know if we make the right decision given our options???

We don't yet know our options but in our eyes right now they aren't good.

All the thoughts go thru your head, what if we have to move- which I'm fine with it's just a house I don't get too attatched to stuff BUT---- In a market like this, a house you lived in for 2 years, you will never come close to getting the money you need. But I know I'm thinking too far but that is human nature.

Where is the line between having faith and planning ahead. You have to think about stuff, but isn't that worry??

What really stinks is they rarely tell you much until it happens, they tell you Fri. you won't have a job come monday.

I'll keep you posted.

Go Buckeyes!!!


Sometimes I think the Lord has misunderstood how much more I can handle!!! Ok I barely have time to DO the laundry let alone clean crayon out of it!!

YES- my dear son left a green crayon in his pocket and it melted ALL over every piece of clothing, leaving green marks everywhere!!

I had to scrub and scrub and I made him scrub the dryer.

I was told to spray the spots with WD 40!! Then wash them is dish soap, then in the washer on HOT.

So I did that only to find big greasy spots cuz I didn't individually clean them with the dish soap cuz it would have taken days!!! So I washed them again with only dish soap.

Long story short his clothes are clean after being washed 4 times and my dryer is clean but with a hint of green.

I hope the Lord gives me a break soon cuz I CANNOT handle one more thing!! The joys of motherhood, somedays I can't see them!! I'm sure I will eventually laugh but not today!!

Endoscopy Tommorrow- YUCK!!!!!!!

Well I can't wait to wake up tommorrow morning!! Boy- do I have a bad attitude right now and if you don't want to hear about it then I suggest you stop reading here!

My barium x-ray DID show something- they said my stomach is narrowing and my duodenum is of asmorphic apperance- I guess meaning it's not the right size and shape. So I said what does this mean??? So I have to go for endoscopy which I am totally dreading, I hear it's not too bad because I have to be put out but it only takes about 10-15 minutes for him to look around in there. BUT I have to be there 1 hour early and then recover so they said it will take a few hours and my driver MUST stay on the premises at ALL times!!!

What a pain!!! Now tell me with cell phones why in the world does the driver have to stay?? If something goes wrong my driver is more qualified than the Dr. on site or what?? I am so annoyed this is the most retarded thing ever!!! So part of the time my mom is going to have to chase Maddi around the office once Matt drops her off at the office on his way to work. I am SO IRRITATED_ that is SO STUPID!!!

So they think this may be the cause of my stomach pain for over a year now!! What also irritates me is they have waited this long!! What if they find something that has gone beyond treatment because we waited too long??? My questions go on and on and I am so mad! They told me- well a couple of Dr.'s have told me they think we are looking at Crohn's Disease. I do not want to have anything wrong especially Crohn's- that is so horrible! So I pray for an answer tommorrow and a treatable one.

My family and I have been robbed of my health for 12 years now and I have had about enough!! Some days I just want to quit!!

OH--- And I have to fast and my appt. is at 1200 noon!!! So I can eat about 3-400 when it's over, but I will probably not feel like eating then!! It is going to kill me not to eat!!!

Oh- the picture is the lovely tube they will shove down my throat once they knock me out!! My mother in law woke up half way thru this gagging with the tubing down her throat!!
