...I've taken a very great interest in the art of 're-doing' furniture. I think it's really a neat idea to scour yard sales, thrift stores or even my own house to find things that I make a little-more-me. I'm excited about our upcoming move and I have lots of ideas of things I want to do....
I love being a mom! I have three great girls. They all are such a blessing to me. Katrin is such a big helper and Kallie is such a snuggle bug and Karra is such an awesome baby! Right now I'm really overwhelmed by life and everything that has to be done. I know people mean well by telling me they would love to help but I'm sick of hearing all the reasons why they can't help. Then I get flack for doing all that I do, well maybe it's because I DON'T have help!! I'm not trying to be Super Mom or do too much, I'm just trying to get done what needs to get done. I don't think I'm someone special by taking a 3 week old baby to church camp but it had to be done. Paul was being ordained and I don't think any of the moms out there would miss a huge milestone in their husbands life to stay at home either.
I would thoroughly enjoy just sitting on my porch swing with a glass of tea and reading a nice book but my mama taught me to be a worker and if there's work to be done, then I'm trying to get it done. It may take me 3 times as long to do it with all the little interruptions but I'll get it done. I would just LOVE for a friend to come visit for a few days or even hours...camp made me once again realize how much I really miss my friends. God has definitely been my closest friend since moving to PA. He has brought our family closer too. I don't have anyone else! I'm not trying to complain or through a pitty party for myself, but sometimes it's just hard to bare.
In the coming weeks, we have alot to accomplish! Paul will be switching jobs. He will be pastoring our current church and another Bible Methodist Church in Newville and starting in August, teaching full-time at a Christian school. We will also be moving to a more central location between the two churches. So, I have a big ol' house to pack up, three kids and a husband to take care of with no help. =) I AM looking forward to what God has in store for our family, just right now it's a little overwhelming. Well duty is calling and need to get lots done...Paul has been working over time yesterday and today so I've been on my own. It's noon and I need to get lunch, my shower and the mountains of laundry.
