Hey Everyone,

Well, I have don't have any pictures to share of any re-do's or painted rooms. We are still painting and it's taking us longer than we expected. Did I mention hubby and I hate to paint. Now it used to be I was always painting something then I turned 40 and it wasn't as much fun. :)

I just needed to vent today. I am so frustrated because hubby was laid off again. They laid him off right after Christmas and then brought him back 3 weeks ago. Now they have run out of work again. It's so frustrating not knowing when you will work or for how long. The economy is so bad that your lucky to just have a job and the job market is so bad it's slim pickings. I am just tired of this roller coaster ride and I want to get off now!

Now I'm not writing this for sympathy I just needed to vent. I told a friend earlier today that through all of this hubby and I have not argued once. I feel like we have actually become closer. I pray that God just helps us manage and keeps us together as a family. We have been blessed because all of our needs have been met. We still have a home and food we know of until the end of April. I just hope things turn around soon not only for us but others out there who are also worried. 

I won't bore you any longer. Thanks to all of you who read my blog and for always inspiring me. I hope to have some pictures to share next time. :)

Hi Donna, we all need to vent now and then and blogs are great places for it! Hang in there friend, I know its hard and scary but sometimes we just have to have faith that it will all work out. Look at it this way, the economy can't get much the only way to go is up. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers:)

Hi Donna,
Vent all ya want! It's your BLOG! :)
I'm sorry things aren't going well right now for ya, I keep praying (every night) that this economy takes a sharp turn UPWARDS and things get better soon. You are sooooo NOT alone!

I have this little "memo" posted on my blog down towards the bottom...It always help me, and I try to remember it!!

Hugs & Prayers-Kath

Memo: SFGTD Box
From: GOD
Reference: LIFE

This is God.
Today I will be handling ALL of your problems for you.
I do not need your help.
So, have a nice day.

And, remember...If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it yourself!
Kindly put it in the SFGTD
(Something For God To Do) box.
I will get to it in MY TIME.
All situations will be resolved,
but in My TIME, not yours.
Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it.
Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.
Should you decide to share this memo with a friend;
Thank you. You may have touched their life in ways you will never know!
Now, you have a nice day.

I love you,

Hi Donna, I was just surfing here and there this cold afternoon in NC and I came across your blog. Your picture of the bunny in the window drew me in. Your blog was so very nice, even though you needed to vent (we all need to do that now and then). Keep your chin up and things will take a turn for the best. Have a great weekend. Sherie

I can only imagine how frustrating this must be! I was just telling Jason about your hubby being back to work a couple of weeks ago.

I am always praying for you and your family! As you said about the closeness of you and your hubby, there is always something good in every situation...if we look around. But I know the not knowing about tomorrow is very discouraging! Hang in there!

I hope you feel better for having written about it and that things get better for all of us soon.

I am so glad you like your dishcloths! :) Since you were my first customer...did the way I send them do OK? Or do you have a different suggestion? Thanks so much for ordering from me! I REALLY appreciate it! :)
