Checkin' in...

Things have calmed down around here somewhat~ now its just the "usual" craziness!! I am still busy, busy, but my thoughts and time have turned more toward getting projects/things done around the house (I painted an entire room by myself, thankyouverymuch.... a FIRST for me), being tortured in the gym by a trainer, (he has no mercy, NONE I tell you), rearranging, reorganizing, appointments, my new bible study, etc. I actually went into the clinical setting, too, and filled in for a nursing instructor that was in a car accident. It was actually alot of fun! My kids have had loads of fun quality time with me, (ALL) of their grandparents, their great-grandparents and various other friends and relatives lately, too.
Spring is making a first tenative appearance here, and I can almost breathe a sigh of relief. My thoughts have turned to the outdoors and spring planting, and I cannot wait to get my hands in the soil and watch things grow! I feel calmer, my head clearer and so much more focused for the coming days.
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee" Amen and amen.

Happy Wednesday and
Much Love,

Jennifer~ So glad you checked in! I've been missing you! Glad that things are starting to slow down for you! Is Andy scheduled to come home in April?

Hope you have a wonderful day!

It is good to hear from you, you were missed. My sister officially flew out yesterday, sigh.... I pray for your husband! Blessings.

Hi Jennifer,
Glad things are getting better for you. Our daughter's husband just left for Iraq last Monday.
I hope yours will be on his way home soon!
Blessings,
Karen

I'm glad to hear things are calming down.

I'll be down there the 17-24 if you need a baby-sitter or any help with anything. =]

I'll always be glad to help.

We've missed you! Spring has sprung here as well and I am itching to get out in the yard. The thing that needs done the most is weed-pulling--already! Yuck!

It's so good to hear from you! I am glad that things are getting back to normal for you. I am ready myself for Spring to come along. I hope you have a good rest of the week.

Take Care and God Bless!
Karen

I'm looking forward to Spring too,the flowers are blooming in my pots. Well done for decorating, I could do with making an effort round here, we are trying to sell and little L took up with wallpaper ripping recently!!

Great scripture verse, Amen too.

Blessings Jennifer.

I have come to your site several times and read your posts. I don't remember if I've ever left a comment. But, I wanted you to know that I am praying for you and your family. I am praying rest and peace for you! God bless you, sweet MS girl!! We share the same state! So, I, too, am seeing signs of spring and loving every minute of it!! Spring is good for the soul!! Take care!

I'm glad to get an update from you, Jennifer!
I know "too much busy" isn't good, but it does sound like you at least make wonderful use of your time...a healthy thing to do when your husband is away. I wish I could have kept a lot busier back when my hubby left for deployments...I just worked part time and didn't even have children yet! Time crept by...so you're doing things so much better!

But be sure you get lots of rest, too, now, Jennifer! :)
(((HUGS)))
