I Read A Boring Blog......

That is what my friend Sherry told me last night. Can you believe that she would say that????? Well, she was just teasing me about not blogging lately. The thing is - I keep thinking I will get time to sit and write but it just hasn't happened. I still don't have a routine and I haven't quite figured out how to be a "working mother". Right now I am in another class. I have to be here to FINALLY get my binding authority. That means I will be able to actually sell insurance for the company (on Wednesday). Today we are learning about property policies....

This past week-end I went to the Women of Faith conference. It was fun. I roomed with Heather (my sister), Rixey and Justiene. All of our traveling was done on a bus. It was interesting. The loud mouth crowd sat in the back of the bus, just like in school. Can you guess where I was???? Well, since it was all girls you can imagine the talks we had!!!! Let's just say they weren't all fit for a public audience so I won't be repeating them here. But I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. The conference was great. There were very moving speakers and lots of great music and drama. I really enjoyed myself and would like to go back in the future. It was a far cry from the Nine Inch Nails concert I attended a month ago. Both fun....just in a very big way. Honestly, I fit it a lot better at WoF. Isn't that great to know??? I did cry several times and you all know how much I love to cry. Ha ha. But tell me, how can I sit there and listen to Natalie Grant sing a song about a two week old baby dying from SIDS and not bawl my eyes out? Luckily I anticipated the emotional roller coaster and stocked up on kleenex before attending. The speakers were so real. I mean VERY VERY VERY honest about their misgivings and mistakes they have made. Everything from spending time in mental facilities to having many abortions. There was a strong emphasis on knowing God will forgive you for your past and he loves you where you are. I dealt with my own guilt for my past mistakes a long time ago so the conference really just re-emphasised what I learned a long time ago. BUT...I think the best part was just getting away for a week-end (Thank you Mom for watching the kids) and spending time with the ladies from our church a little better. Girl time is always needed and refreshing. Most of our husbands went to Promise Keepers in Columbus. I think it was a little more intense.

Okay, well, it is lunch time. I have to get going. Leave me a comment and let me know you are still with me.

Sounds like you're very, very busy. Glad you had a good weekend, wish I could have been there.

Our garden is partly ready to harvest, we have lots of squash, cucumbers, some green beans and potatoes. We planted a row of watermelons and I counted over 50 melons on the vines. And.... I don't even like watermelons that good, so come on down and we will have a melon party!!

Of course I am still with you! Where else would I go? For those who read my blog, no I still haven't officially heard about the job. I'm calling tomorrow to see if I can find anything out!

I wouldn't call your blog boring just because you don't post every day now. But I do miss it sometimes.

I think she was referring to the "I took a boring class" title... Get it??? Apparently she quit reading since she hasn't commented.

I'm still here too. It does sound like you're pretty busy! It's good to hear from you, even if it's not as often as it was.

Delilah, I noticed you mentioned Justiene in your post....therefore, we know she hasn't "passed over" to the other side....PLEASE tell her to update us on whats going on in her life!

Thanks,
Aunt D.

Are you trying to get me in trouble with your relatives or what??? Thanks for updating I was surprised to see two posts you must have a lot of free time these days:)...isn't it amazing the time you find when someone else has just one of your kids.
