Hi All,
I'm sorry that I have not been very active for the past week or 2. We've had some friends going through major upheavals in their lives and have been stepping in to help them. Two families have no income at the moment and the other family needed a safe place for their 13 year old son to stay for 2 weeks while his mom did her medical rotations. He and his father (parents divorced) had a major falling out and he refuses to stay with him. So... we've had extra people here and been trying to help the other 2 families with food, homeschooling needs and whatever else they need. It's been a bit hectic.
My husband is taking all 4 of the boys camping with our church (men's campout) later today and I plan on just relaxing and watching a good "chick flick" tonight. A friend may come over to spend the night (ladies slumber party:smball: ). The mother of the boy that is staying with us is coming over to stay Saturday night to visit with us and her son and then heading back on Sunday after church.
I'll admit, I'm tired! We've been trying to homeschool throughout all of this and we're doing okay. I had to cut back on a few subjects until we have our lives back "to normal" again. Just too much to do and too little time to get it all done in.:) Hopefully I can get back to couponing also this next week. I have not been able to even get the inserts and it's hurting our grocery bill big time. I NEED MY COUPONS!:toothy:
I'd appreciate your prayers to get us through the next few weeks! :hugz:

:grouphug:Thanks Ladies!!!! I can tell I'm getting weary because I'm still in my jammies at 10:32 a.m.:) More crisis hit here today with my kid's band (all teenagers) with one of the boys lying to everyone and trying to play people against each other. UGHHH! I really do not like this kid at all because he is sneaky, whiny and manipulative. LORD, give me strength!!!!:angel:

Debbie you are a wonderful person to take in an extra child and to help out 2 other families with their needs while providing for your own family.

The Lord will give you strength to deal with the "band kid".

:grouphug: Ladies!
My men have all left on their camping trip and it looks like it's just me tonight (I don't think my friend is going to make it). Oh well, I'm going to enjoy my quiet time. My husband kissed me goodbye with orders to rest, relax and pamper myself. I love that man of mine!!!!:cloud9:
