I have not posted since April 8, 2009:

I have not posted anything on my blog since April 8, but I do hope to make a fresh start. This blog will be mostly about every day things: viewpoints, thoughts, dreams, wishes, statuses, etc. I hope you enjoy spending a bit of time with me every day.
My youngest daughter, who is my third child, celebrated her 16th birthday yesterday! So hard to accept the fact that she's growing up! She's taller than me now and her feet are quite a bit longer, too. Before long, I might get to ask her if I can wear some of her clothes! LOL We went to Samurai Steak and Sushi restaurant to celebrate last night. Our friends, Jessica, Trinidad, and Melinda joined us there. There was 9 of us altogether. The chef made us laugh, several times in fact! Peyton and I wore dresses, as did her friend Jennifer, and the guys all wore dress pants and dress shirts! Wow! It was fun dressing up! And our friend Jessica brought her 16 pastel roses in a pretty purple vase. How special is that? I decorated the dining room with black, silver, and pink "Sweet 16" items that I found at Party City. Very cool! And she wanted a cheesecake instead of a "regular" cake, so that's what she got! Fun times and some great pics!

Project 365 ~ Day 63 (Wednesday, March 4, 2009)

Hunter's basketball team (Rockets of Clear Lake Boys' Basketball, age 10 Juniors) go to the play-offs tonight! Woo-hoo! His team is ranked second in his age division. They played well and the game was very exciting. They came in runners up. Right after the game, they received very nice large trophies. The winners received embroidered nylon sports jackets (which were actually way over-sized). TG3 came to watch the game with us and then we went to Star Fire Grill for a late snack (while TG3 had dinner). Thanks for the support by coming to Hunter's game, TG3! We love you!

Project 365 ~ Day 62 (Tuesday, March 3, 2009)

Wow! I have really gotten behind with my posting, but I am going to try (again) to catch up. The date of the posting will be later than the date that I am writing for it to be (clear as mud?).
In other words, today is actually April 7, but I am writing for March 3. I have a lot of things to say and reflect on, so it shouldn't be much of a problem to catch up! For example, after having taken the baseball scorekeeping class, I didn't realize how difficult it was until sitting in the scorekeeper's box! Yikes! Not only do I not know all of the baseball terminology (although by now I should), I also found that the umps are not always that cooperative when it comes to calling "ball" or "strike"! From now on, I would prefer sticking to pitch counts and/or announcing the players! Yikes!!

Project 365 ~ Day 61 (Monday, March 2, 2009)

Out of the mouths of babes: My son, Hunter (age 10), said to me the other day that he cannot wait until the year 2011. Of course, I asked him what he meant by that and he replied: "because I'll be a teenager then"! Not something I even want to think about, especially with having raised two through the teen years already and I have another one that is there now! As my dad would've said "may the saints preserve us"! :)

Project 365 ~ Day 65 (Friday, March 6, 2009)

Do you ever have random thoughts enter your head without provocation? Does it ever make you wonder why? I was once told that when a person pops into your head, it is the Holy Spirit's way of letting you know that that person needs prayer and maybe a helping hand. Maybe they could use a friendly phone call or a kind note. The next time you think of someone that you haven't thought of in a long time, stop and take a moment to pray for them and to ask God what you can do to help that person.

Project 365 ~ Day 64 (Thursday, March 5, 2009)

I went on the fourth grade field trip with Hunter's school today. We went to the San Jacinto Monument. I rode with a friend, Amy Schlauch, whose family we've known since we started attending the same church as they do. Amy (who happens to be from Thailand) and her husband, Art, have three wonderful children. The oldest, Wittiker, is the same age as my son Hunter and they get along beautifully. Wittiker and Hunter were on the same baseball team at Bay Area Texas Baseball for at least three seasons! The first two of those were coached by Wittiker's dad, Art. I'll post more about the field trip and the San Jacinto Monument at a later date.

Project 365 ~ Day 60 (Sunday, March 1, 2009)

I love our Church! There are so many wonderful friends that we have made there and our minister, Randy Hageman, preaches the Bible truths. Our lead singer, Betsy Burke, as well as the other singers of course, all have beautiful melodic voices and the instrumentalists are just as wonderful. We also have a church band called "The Resurrection Band" which is working on their second CD! Mike Lively, the youth leader, is well respected by my daughter and my 10 year-old enjoys the 11 a.m. Sunday School class (especially the Sundays that I help in there; ha)! There are many southern baptists that attend there, as well as "reformed catholics", etc. PLUS: we have the bonus of a real Starbuck's inside of the church!
