Internet Junkie Loses Great Blog Post

HAHA!! How’s that for a title??? 🙂

I just wrote a GREAT blog post that I could NOT get to save! I was waiting and waiting for what I “thought” was my internet to work so that I could hit “publish”, but I think it might have been this site that was down.

Anyway…. I don’t have time to re-write it at the moment. Oh yea…. I lost the blog post. 😦

I will be away from internet until Sunday afternoon, so I won’t be able to post until then. And… now that I’m thinking about it. I probably won’t get back to posting until Monday morning.

Yaaaaa….. I am an internet junkie and I don’t know how I’m going to survive for two and a half days without it!!! AHHH!!!!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!

Church, Prayers & Levi

I apologize for this post not being on topic with my reason for blogging, but sometimes… God has other things that He needs you to focus on.

Well I did go to church yesterday with Hubs, and I’m glad that I did. God was… of course… waiting for me there. He had a message for me. Not only does He love “me”, but He expects me to love Him and have faith in Him.

One of the hymns that we sang was “Change My Heart, Oh God“. It really spoke to me.

Another one was.. “I Love You, Lord“.

The focus scripture was Deuteronomy 6:5

5 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.

I also got to see my Stephen Minister. I haven’t spoken to her in a while. I asked her if she could meet with me this week. We agreed to meet tomorrow morning.

This morning, I’m asking for prayers for my 6 month old puppy, Levi. He started limping yesterday. We were hoping that he just pulled something (still may have) and it would be better today. Well…. he’s very lethargic this morning and won’t eat. To me… he feels like he has a fever.

I’m so scared and worried. We lost one of our dogs last year due to a similar situation. He had Leukemia. It was so awful. We can’t go through that again.

Please pray for Levi. I’m going to be taking him to the vet as soon as these storms that are coming, pass through.

Well, I slept better. But, my back still hurts

I don’t even know where to begin thinking about Christmas! Yikes! I hate having to give gifts. It all stresses me out!

Mandy still won’t talk to me much. This made me more sad! I had already been crying all morning, just depressed and missing my girls.

Hubs came home right after me. He went to the fridge for a beer – which is unusual for him during the week. He then asked me if I had talked to Mandy. I told him what I knew. THEN —- He told me that she was considering joining the ARMY!!! This is NOT something that I want!! But, I can’t stop her.

So… I cried some more. At least Hubs was sweet this time and hugged me.

My back is KILLING ME because of all this stress!!

** By the way….. All names have been changed.

 I did not want to get up this morning. I have been sleeping good, lately!

I’m going to try extra hard to stay on track with my eating and exercising this week and next until Thanksgiving! I can’t believe that I gained 5 pounds!! I am so depressed about it.

I hate that it’s cold. I can’t ride my bike.
