Life in general

Authored by tara on Sat, Jan 31 2004 - 09:02 PM

Wish I could say I felt a lot of joy these days, but I can't.  Have you ever wondered what God has in store for you?  Have you ever just wanted to yell at Him as hard and as loud as you can and just ask Him what the heck he's trying to show you.  Well I have and am feeling that way right now.  It would seem that no matter WHAT ...

So I had a great day today.  I did laundry but other than that I just spent some great quality time with the girls.  Kiara didn't wake up this morning until about 11:30 so Bri and I had some alone time to start off the day....that was wonderful. I did have to do some thinking today though.  I started a forum on here the other night ...

weekend

Well today was a pretty good day. I did quite a few things so that was a good feeling.  Working full time makes it hard to get things done around here because I just don't have the gusto by the time the evening is through.  I make it through supper and the bed time routine and thats about as far as it goes.  Hubby is little to no ...

Well we just had a scary thing happen to us.  When we moved into our current home I was pregnant with Kiara which meant we weren't really looking around for things that could be dangerous.  Well tonight, a year and a half later, we found one.  I was washing dishes and everyone else was just milling around the house.  Last I ...

So there's this guy we know.  He calls himself Fly.  He's a pretty friendly guy but he's also kinda quirky.  Now I'm quirky but I think this guy is REALLY quirky.  You see he talks really really fast and asks lots of questions.  Whenever he comes over he is constantly saying "Taralee what do you think about that?"  ...

Well another day gone by.  Had a grrrrrreat sleep last night.  Laid my head down about midnight and slept through the alarm for 15 minutes but luckily I had set it for 6:30 last night because 6:45 was too late I wasn't crawling out of bed until 7 which meant I was rushing too much and I hate to rush! I'm anticipating tomorrow because I ...

So it seems the government wants my input on how to change the subsidy system.  I don't know if they actually mean it or if they are just trying to make it LOOK like they care...who knows.  I'm still going to try my best to give really good information with the hope that it will make a difference in our province:) So I'm not going to ...

So I didn't do much out of the ordinary today.  Started my memory page for my dads party and did up some thank you's for Bri's friends that came to her party.  I also printed off some pictures of them so she can include them in the envelope...they turned out really nice! I'm so tired these days, by about 10pm I feel like I can barely ...

Back At It

Authored by tara on Mon, Jan 05 2004 - 07:21 PM

So of course I was all tired today.  Kiara is getting a molar and has a bad rash.  She was really uncomfortable last night and was up most of the night.  When morning rolled around (and after I dragged my own butt out of bed) I had to get her up.  Needless to say, she was NOT a happy little camper.  When I dropped her off ...

Well today is my dad's 65th birthday.  65 years WOW!!!!  Thats amazing to me.  In my 26 years of life 65 seems like years and years away, I'll bet for my dad though, it has gone by so quickly. So on the 11th (which is also my husbands b'day) I will throw my dad a surprise party.  We're having it at a friends restaurant.  I' ...

So at my work theres always people talking about stuff.  I try not to get in the loop because I"m only there half time and really life is just much too short to be involved in who did this or that or whatever.  Sometimes we get dragged into the loop against our will though. The government has decided to give schools some extra money. ...

Today I went to see my Grandmother who is 93.  She lives in a nursing home and was just placed there this year.  All my life growing up I never really liked visiting her because she was quite negetive and didn't really let us have any fun.  Of all things, my grandma even hated jokes!!  We always knew she loved us but she really ...
