I am 9 years older than Tom, not younger. OOOPPSSS!! I STAND CORRECTED...HeeHeeHee.

I have been tagged....

I have been tagged by Jen, so here goes...

  • I play the piano and the guitar. I learned when I was a small girl and played in church all of my life. I'm NOT Kim Collingsworth, but I might settle for

  • When I was in grade school I thought it would be neat to go by Patty instead of Gale. That only lasted a short time before I realized you couldn't find as many nicknames to go with Gale as you could Patty. (my first name is Patricia)

  • I am 9 years younger than Tom. "SHOCK" :):) We met at a youth camp and he pursued me. I said no, but God changed my mind...:):)

  • I do not like heights. Roller Coasters make me positively sick. I can fly but I get really nervous the whole flight.

  • I am one of two plus five...We are a put together family. My mother and my step father were married after their children were born. We have an interesting history. There is a total of 9 in our family now.

  • I absolutely love ice cream! (can you tell) :):) I always have at least 4-5 cartons of ice cream in the freezer at all times. My all-time favorite is "white ice cream" with chocolate syrup. Patricia calls vanilla - white ice cream.

  • The greatest love in my life are my girls. They are my sunshine on rainy days, my laughter when things get tough, my bed partners when daddy is away, my comfort when I am sad and I could go on forever. But I won't.

Hope you enjoyed my seven tags. Now to tag someone else...I tag Gwen, Carla, Kim, Sharron, Mary Schaffer, Rebecca, Brenda

Have fun

A Fun Filled Day!!

Today was a wonderful day!! I took the girls out to Jonathan Dickenson Park for a picnic with the Christian Education Department from the college and the Bus Ministry from the Church. Even though I am not teaching right now, I was asked to go and we had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, I do not have pictures because alas, my hubby has the camera. He is in Orlando for the weekend working and was not able to go to the picnic. I was totally in charge!! WOW!! Do I feel special :):)

The weather was great although very warm. We were hoping for cooler weather since the sky was overcast but that was not to be the case. The drinks were gone before we were able to eat. We had a fellow there who smoked a hog and someone else grilled deer burgers. I am not a "wild meat" person but I did eat one of the deer burgers. It was pretty good except maybe a little more mushy than a beef burger would be. There didn't seem to be a wild taste to it. We also had several salads and lots of yummy deserts. I always eat more than I should at social functions but today was just too hot. A friend of mine rode out with me and we left soon after eating.

Pastor Wolf and his family and David Walker were coming to our house this Sunday evening and we had to cancel because of Tom's work. I hope this doesn't happen very often. Tom will be hunting a new job. He doesn't feel that he should be working on Sunday as it is the Lord's day and he won't make a habit of it. One of the other fellows had a car accident and hurt his back pretty bad. He will be off until the 29th. Tom had to fill in for him. We hated to cancel with the pastor. He seems to be quite busy going to other homes, but we had no choice.

Well, the girls are both tired from the park and Patricia is in the bathtub. I still have Katie to bath and myself plus sweep and mop the floors. Maybe the floors can wait....we'll see.

My prayer is that each one who visits my blog will have a wonderful Sunday filled with the Joy of the Lord. Find somewhere to worship tomorrow. You will be amazed at how uplifted and full of peace you will feel.

Goodnight and God bless...

Have you ever felt like killing him????? :D

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband.Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. 'Careful,' he said, 'CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the! salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!' The wife stared at him. 'What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?' The husband calmly replied, 'I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving.'

Stressed Out!!

I found this picture on the Internet but I think that someone else had it on their blog. Sorry if that is the case. I needed something to show you what a "CRAZY AND STRESSED OUT" week I am having!! :(:( It has been so HOT and the air in the new office is not installed. We were there yesterday trying to get ready to move in and I dripped a gallon of sweat in about 1 hour. So much heat when we should be feeling some cooler weather about now.
I didn't have a desk for the new office and so I went to our local thrift store to look for one and found a fairly nice one for $35.00. I called the boss and he came to see it. We decided it would get us by until we could really shop for one. We are in a very small place right now and just need to get moved to have more room. So the desk was a good thing. The nice thing is that when he decides to do some more shopping, I should be able to get the desk for myself. Mine is a little wobbly and my daughter painted it with white-out. :):) She also painted herself with white-out!! Talk about a job. I took off skin from her cheeks trying to get the stuff off. I made sure that I put it up really high out of reach after that incident. It would have never happened if DADDY hadn't fell asleep....that's another story.... :D
I have started a diet!! UGH, DOUBLE UGH!!!! I hate to diet. If there is one thing that I enjoy, it is food. Not just any food, but really well prepared food. I also am the ICECREAM queen!! I usually keep about 5 containers of ice cream plus different kinds on a stick in the freezer. Everyone who visits the Wheatcraft's house knows that their is ALWAYS!! ice cream. But, that will have to change. I have got to lose some #'s and fast!! So a friend of mine, Eileen (whose blog you can access from my page) started an accountability blog of sorts. I told her that I was willing to be accountable and maybe it would help me to stay focused on my goal. I can proudly say that I have lost 2 1/2 #'s this week already. I am SO PROUD!!! I hope to lose even more over the next few weeks before the holiday foods arrive.
I tried to bike ride last night. My husband bought me a gorgeous bike with a "fat butt" seat!! The best kind of seat to me!! It was so humid and muggy I couldn't go much more than 15 min. I hate when I feel that way. But I did try so I get an A-plus for the effort. Since I have been having so much trouble with my feet, I wanted to start out exercising with my bike first and then maybe work in some walking. Anything is better than what I have been doing.
Enough for now. The girls are doing great. Working on some attitude with Patricia and getting teeth with Katie. I'll save them for the next time.
I pray that all of my on-line friends have a safe and fun weekend. Thanks for stopping by!!
