Amen, a little prayer helps when you feel like sinking

Dear Lord,

I thank You for this day, I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God.

You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness. Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.

Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.

Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things.

Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. And give me the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits.

I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart.

Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.

Keep me strong that I may help the weak... Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way.

I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.

I pray for those who don't know You intimately.

I pray for those that don't believe…. But I thank You that I believe that God changes people and God changes things.

I pray for all my sisters and brothers.

For each and every family member in their households.
I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes; that they are out of debt or are working to get out of debt, and all their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God.

Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.

I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees it
In Jesus' name, Amen!

Sleeping in the Crib

I'm thankful to report that Isabella is sleeping 100% in her crib unless Mommy feels like snuggling. She is doing an awesome job, sometimes she wakes for her feeding and it takes like an hour for her to fall asleep again, which will be easier when we put her in her bedroom at our new apartment since I can let her cry a little bit more without waking Adam.

So I will definitely say that letting her cry for bit in her crib does the job, but I'm not a purist. I feed her, rock her, then lay her down and pat her back for a few minutes before I leave the room and I only let her cry for like 10 minuets before I'll check on her and pat her back to calm her down again. She doesn't normally need me to come in again after that. So I'm definitely not a purist to the let them cry technique but I do it enough that it works and to the point where I'm comfortable with it too.


I'm pleased as punch! I just bought my NEW MOON tickets! My brother and I are going to the midnight showing at 12:02 am, I can't wait. I might be surrounded by screaming teenage girls but I don't care I can't wait to see the movie. I've waited one year for this one to come out; last year I saw Twilight like 4 or 5 times in the theater, I even took Isabella to a showing at the dollar theater. I'm hoping this year I'll be able to see it at least 2-3 times. Just depends on Bells and Adam watching it.

So we're Moving

One monthly RESOLUTION complete. Yup, were moving and unfortunately were leaving the O.C.! I've never lived outside of the O.C. my entire life, it will definitely be strange. We're moving to Mira Loma, which is between Corona and Ontario off of the 15 fwy. Our community is in the sticks but it's really nice; even if we are living across the street from a bunch of cows. We're moving on Halloween which is another bummer because we might not get a chance to trick or treat with Bella. My goal is to be done in enough time to do some trick and treating before Bella wipes out for the night, but we'll see.

My October Resolution

I have four weeks left and I don't want anything to ruin it. So far I've done great but the wear and tear of little sleep and talking ALL the time is starting to get to me. What's that old saying, "any woman worth her salt can do whatever she has to;" I truly believe that.

If there is extra I want to put it all in savings. Adam and I've been flaking and just stashing some of it away. I want to place 100% away.

This is always difficult because my family likes to do lists but I like to buy things I think they'll enjoy, I get a staisfaction from thinking about them opening it and loving it even though they didn't put it on their list. But if you mess up and are off mark then you feel bad, so their is an upshot and a downshot with my philosophy. My dear husband is a stickler for list shopping.

This is fairly important. We were planning on moving at the end of Nov but the manager just tacked on our door a letter informing us that if we choose to go past our lease date of Oct 31, then we go to month to month which will cost us $1630. That is crazy talk, I'm meeting with him tomorrow to see if he'll play ball and let us keep to our normal rent for Nov, if he won't then we'll be leaving a month early which means I need to find an apartment this weekend or next. Scary Scary...
