Money Money Money.....

So... Why is it always so hard to get ahead.. Why cant money just grow on trees!!

Seems like lately every time I think Im going to get just a little bit ahead something comes up.. ALWAYS!! Why are financial holes so hard to get out of.. School loans are not fun.. AT ALL!! Insurance payments, house bills, and credit cards are rough on the bank account...

Ive been doing so good the last couple years making payments on stuff and always paying stuff on time but sometimes it just seems like there is never light at the end of the tunnel..

Now it is my fault that I chose a career path that wont make me a millionaire.. I am definitely not complaining though.. Not everyone can look forward to going to work each day and leaving work just about every day with a smile on your face! I do..

I know there are so many more important things in life besides having a gazillion dollars in the bank.. Lately though the burden of monthly bills is just eating at me..

So.. If anyone out there just wants to help me out and plant a money tree in my yard id be grateful.. ;-) Or if anyone has suggestions and advice on how to get things paid off quicker please share.. I did get a great website today that im soaking up all I can from.. Dave Ramsey.. He has alot of great tips.. :-)

Hard Lessons

Why are  some lessons harder to learn than others??

I often catch myself lately trying to fix problems that just can not be fixed.. Sometimes I guess you just have to be ok with the fact that you have tried your best whether it fixes the problem or not.. I have also learned that you just can not please everyone and again even if you really try your best there are going to just be some people that find the negative in every situation no matter what.. Can you say Debbie Downer?!!

This has been a trying week at work for me.. I dont complain about my job but once every blue moon.. So you better believe the moon will be blue tonight.. :-) If you know anything about me.. You know I love love love kids... Hands down they are the best part of my day! However.. Working with these special little creatures can get to you sometimes.. As we all know girls arent the easiest things to get along with or figure out sometimes.. ;-) Ive had several things ive been trying to work through this week and trying to make the best of situations but just when I think I get things figured out I feel like im kicked right back to square one.. So needless to say I think by the end of the week Ill have my fair share of grey hairs and need an appointment at the salon!

On a brighter note... When I am down.. I am reminded of just how blessed I am and love the fact that I have so many wonderful positive uplifting people in my life.. I walked out into the gym yesterday pretty shaken up and my sweet 2 oldest girls were there waiting with hugs! They had no idea what the issue at hand was but all they knew was that I was upset and needed a hug.. Amazing what a hug can do when you get your feelings hurt!

So.. In the end I have learned that no matter what things will work themselves out one way or another  and it will all be ok... :-)

Be jealous! I have the best kiddos!

What A Week!!!!

It has been the most wonderful week...

I was off work all week and got so much stuff done and just enjoyed the down time..

My house is clean, laundry is done, we had home cooked meals, and go to spend lots of quality time with Gabe and the puppies!!

We had such a great time at the rodeo this week! Ran in to some of my kiddos from work! Its always so much fun seeing them out of the gym and watching them just enjoy being a kid.. Always smiling & laughing.. The rodeo in my opinion was sooo much better than last years!! We laughed at the jokes, enjoyed all the cowboys & cowgirls and the different activities!!


Over Memorial Day weekend we went to Texas to visit with some of my best friends and attend their annual BallsTown BBQ.. Talk about some amazing food!! We had the best time.. I absolutely love seeing my Texas family.. Last trip to Texas we brought home a puppy.. This trip Gabe got him a big toy!! :)
So.. As you can tell.. Its been a wonderful week!! I love my husband, my friends, and my life!!! God is good!!!

So very excited though to get back to work & see my girls this week.. Going to be the best summer yet!!!!
