Just me yapping

So I guess I'm due to write something.  We got back in our motorhome just fine.  Of course, it did leave the place quite a mess.  Let's just say, at this point, its a work in progress.:)  We are still undetermined whether we want to stay at this rv park or venture to another one that is pretty far from Sam's work.  Right now, we're about 15 mins away.  We'll prolly try and stay here.

Well, Sunday after church, we went and ate at Olive Garden and it was sooooo good.  I had to ration myself, but I still enjoyed it.  I got the cheese ravioli's and only ate three of them in the restaurant and ended up having three more meals out of it later!  Woohoo.  I didn't even have to prepare it.:)  Apparently, Braden and Zekey are Fettucini Alfredo lovers like their daddy.  I myself am NOT fond of Alfredo sauce.  Anyway, they scarfed theirs down.  Then we went to the mall.  Sam needed some tools and while we were there, I saw that they have a Motherhood Maternity, so we went there and I got several things to wear.  Yay!  I don't have any of my former maternity clothes with me. This mall also has one of those free play areas for the kids and while Sam was checking out of Sears, I took Braden to the play area.  He had so much fun!  Zekey slept right through it and woke up just in time to leave. :(  Well, I'm sure there will be a next time.  Anyway, Sam then agreed to let me get a new pair of dress shoes because I don't have any that are comfy.  I found some ballerina-style shoes at Payless and got them.  I am now on the lookout for some snazzy flipflops on the days I don't want my whole foot covered up.  We'll see what I can find.  I'm pretty sure nothing will compare with my Crocs, which are the MOST comfy flipflops I have ever had.  Before these, I was a connoisseur of flipflops.  Really, I was just excited to be able to go around the mall and still be okay.  I did start running out of steam by the end and that's pretty much all I had in me for the rest of the day.  It was progress though and that's the point.  Thank you God for making me able to spend a day with my family without the need to lay down the whole time!!!!:)  Woohoo!!!

There has also been another funny/interesting development.  We have had our mobile home for about three years now.  We first got it when we moved to Diana.  My sister Jennifer's parents let us cop a squat on their land for free.   It was truly a blessing.  Then when we moved to Corpus Christi, it sat for a while with no occupants until my sister Mollie moved it to her land and lived in it for a year.  Well, now its going back to Jennifer's parents land and Ben, Jen and the boys are buying it from us and are going to live in it!  Isn't that great?  Its really a blessing for all around because we wanted to sell it.  Mollie and her husband wanted to live somewhere else and they were interested in it not being on their property anymore and then Ben and Jen decided to sell their house and were looking into mobile homes and ours was the best deal.  Its so funny that we've kept it in the family!  Anyway, they plan to make many improvements to it and I'm excited to see the end result.  A lot of the improvements are things Sam and I would have liked to do to it when we lived in it, but just flat out didn't have the money to do it.  So I'm glad they are going to fix the ole girl up. :D  So, Praise God! for another debt taken care of.  Its amazing what He does in His timing when we step back out of His way!!!!!

I do have something that's been on my mind, but It'll take a bit for me to formulate it all and write another post.  Until then....
