Life is...

Well, I realize it has been awhile since I wrote.
Wow, with working and all the extra curricular activities I have going on, blogging has fallen to the wayside I am afraid.
I do find blogging to be very helpful to me so I will make an effort to get to it more often.

The mornings lately are really hard to wake up. It is dark and cold, and just the kind of time where you want to curl up in your husbands
arms and fall back into sleep.

Right now the sky is a million shades of pink, swirled with the grey clouds, and pieces of blue. It is breathtaking. I can see it so brightly through my window here, and it makes me smile, in spite of my grumpy tired self this morning.

It is Friday....I am so thankful for that. Friday's are family day. We watch a movie and make pizza, and afterwards Dave and I curl up on there couch to watch a movie the two of us, often with a nice glass of baileys and milk. Friday's are my favorite day.

They remind me why I get up every morning. Why I go to work, why I come home, why I keep trying, keep believing....

This weekend we have lots of family fun planned with Halloween right around the corner. My boys are going as Kraft Dinner and Spaghetti and Meatballs. Hmm, think Mom was hungry when she suggested it? We are planning to carve the pumpkin and do some cookies for my youngest's class. And Sunday (family cooking day) its my oldest Son's day so he will be preparing a Halloween themed meal. Fun Fun. We are also planning to go to an auction on Sunday so I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my weekend.

The crisp fall air brings some mixed emotions for me. I love the fall, and I have many happy memories, including the beginning of my married life. Seven Anyway, I kinda digress there, but whatever. LOL. Well we work through these things don't we, and find our way the best we can I guess.

So, I am still avidly collecting coupons. It is such a thrill to me for some messed up reason. I think its the idea of free money. Like all those dollars
and cents will somehow make me rich. Ok well not rich, but hey, when you buy eight items at the grocery store like juice(the expensive vitamin/soy enriched kind) flaked chicken, and ham, and Lipton Soupmixes for 9 dollars it becomes worth it! :)

Ok so I have rambled I go.

Have a Happy Halloween all!

off I go....Lord help me

I am heading to my best friend from highschool's wedding this weekend. I hate flying and so of course the nerves are all messed up.

I am excited to see her get married, so I suppose its all worth while. Plus its a chance to kick up my dancin shoes, and let down the hair.
(Not that there is lot to let down, specially since I just cut it again - but you get the picture, lol)

I am meeting up with a dear friend of mine Michelle, so I am excited for that too. I am dragging her to the wedding with me so I have someone to dance with and talk to, but truthfully her and my friend have a lot in common so I think they will hit it off fine!

So look out Toronto, here I come!
