Senior Daughter

Our youngest daughter, Laurie, is a senior in high school. She is everything I wanted to be at this time of her life. She is bright, bubbly, beautiful, and kind hearted. Her plans are to go to college and become a vet. She is applying to her school of choice this week. She has everything to be accepted, grades, class placement, act scores. So more than likely she will be admitted. She has the brains for anything she sets her mind to do. And an 8 year college program does not seem to phase her in the least.
I am very proud of her. Please include her in your prayers.

Time. It has a way of passing entirely too quickly.
Time. To count my blessings. I have so many I should be ashamed.
Time. Does anyone really know what time it is?

Losing Weight in '08

Well, 2008 is almost here. And as usual, I have set some weighty goals. Mostly to get rid of about 50 pounds by June if at all possible. I have several reasons to lose weight,
#10 I want to wear a size 5 again (or anything smaller than the 12 I am in now)
#9 I want to be healthier
#8 I want to not feel so tired every single day!
#7 I want to be healthier
#6 I want to be able to jog without absolutely feeling like I am having a heart attack!
#5 I want my bra size to be SMALLER! Have you ever jogged with giant sized you know whats hitting you in the face??? It ain't a pretty site!
#4 I want to be healthier (did I already tell you that???LOL)
#3 I want to be able to go to horse shows and look decent in the "breeches" those English folks insist you wear!
#2 If I ever get grandchildren, I don't want them having an unhealthy fat
ChaCha ( not grandmother for me!!)
#1 Is to be healthier and SKINNIER than the day I married Rick!!!

So those are my goals and reasons for wanting to lose weight in '08.. Join me and lets blog together as we try try try to be healthier together!

It's Friday

Yes, another Friday has come and nearly gone. The weather outside is frightful or at least its cold! My house is really quiet except for the hum of the computer and the clicking of the keyboard. But life will be back when my youngest returns from her night out on the town.

All this quietness has set me to doing some serious thinking. How many of us take our families for granted? I know I used to . This is the 2nd Christmas without my dad and it is a very lonely feeling to know that one is an orphan. Not to feel sorry for myself, because I had the greatest parents and could not have wished for a better childhood. I just hope that if you still have your parents, that you will cherish them everyday.

A beginning

Beginnings....... How important are they? Take a look back at your beginnings and then realize how important they really are.

This blog is for communication about our life on Redstone Farm, located in south central Oklahoma.

Hopefully it will have information that will be of interest to you "the reader".
