Also, on twitter its seemingly not a community, its like this random screen where you are only connected to , you? What fun is that? Please enlighten me!!
Also, are there any of you that have teen girls & had a terrible time with them, & are now back on track w/ a good relationship?? ( need encouragement!!) It's sometimes (often) feels like we won't ever recover from this time in her life. And as a parent, you can't help but think that it's something your doing wrong & you just want to fix it.. Your never prepared for this child you know & love so deeply,to turn into this person you don't even like or enjoy being around.( I'm just being honest.) And you certainly don't have a peace about where this child's bad choices & behavior will lead them... No one & nothing prepares you for what has become the hardest season of my entire life. I really miss her .
Lastly, I have found out about this precious family (from another bloggy girl friend whom I have grown to dearly love, Elaine @ Matters of the heart, listed on my blog roll).
The Macks desperately need our prayer's. Please stop over & see whats going on in their precious family, I'm certain you wont regret it.
Thanks for reading gang, & even if your just a typical lurker, please share your 2 cents with me!!
I will be away this weekend @ a much needed Women's retreat, but I will receive all of your comments right to my cell, ( which I love getting!!) & I will come in and check you all out as soon as I return ;)
Have a fabulous weekend, & stay warm!!

Ohhhh Girls , batten down the hatches, this aint your typical Not me Monday... ( No judging, you know , it's in the Book!!)
I did not desperately want to take one of my 14 year old twins over my knee 3 times this weekend.( Came sooooo close, by the grace of God I restrained myself!!)
I did not tell Big A that if he didn't get right home after work he might find a note that read " I'm at the Rennasiance (Hotel) , might see ya Friday-ish...It was Saturday.
I did not turn the sabath into deep house/yard cleaning for the whole fam... Sorry Lord.
I did not have a thin shred of hope pinned on meeting with said 14 y.o's therapist today at 2:30- then he called to postpone because of this weather!!!! Ughhhh
I did not turn Big A down 4 times this weekend.. I know, it just aint right...Sorry babe, seriously it's not you, its me.
I did not drive through starbucks 6 times this weekend ( fri, sat sun..do the math)
I did not sleep in an extra hour & have Big A leave after Sunday school & come home to get me for church, nope, not moi.
I did not stay up on face book till 2:30 am last night and sleep till 10.....
I am not sitting here watching 'Lizzie mcGuire the movie" with Lil P...
I did not just find my bichon digging through my bathroom trash!! -ewwwwwie
I did not just say "ewwwwwie"
Okay, I'm off to pop around and see how your monday's are going.. Oh yes & -If your lurking and just planning to read this and not reply, I cannot see that you stopped by on my blog tracker & I will not do the same to you... :)

OR SO I THOUGHT!!! Okay, so I'm writing this & I do a google search for a pic of aunt Jodi to put on here-you wont believe what I found- I'm totally shocked- here's a video clip of Aunt Jodi crying because of all the fall out from what has been touted as Kate thinking that she comes off looking better than her on the show, & also Discovery Channel offered Jodi $ to be on the show to which Kate says NO WAY-That only her family can receive money for the filming of this show . Read one or read them all, it's up to you.. I found it interesting.
Here is part of a letter about it:
And here's a video about it from Aunt Jodi:
And here is the blog she refers to, where all of this is talked about by Aunt Jodi's sister:
Gheesh, I really thought they were tight as the spandex on a cycle cop making his usual rounds at Duncan Doughnuts...
( Umm, I apologize in advance if you are one, or are married to one :)
What are your thoughts on all of this & as usual, am I the last to know???
Oh yes, & sweet Jodi when your ready to talk , I'm here for you girl - stay strong!!
** & on the prom dress front, my instinct doesn't have a flash so I wasn't able to take pics :( but as soon a we have some options, I'll post them.
Thanks to all of you that replied to my post!! ;)

My sisters 24th b-day was Thursday and my nieces was yesterday so off we went! I've got Syd and lil P with me, the other ladies stayed back with dad ( I think Kait's reason for staying back had more to do with the Boy than I had realized before my departure, otherwise she might have been dragged along too, I'm just sayin!!) Have you ever noticed that when you are around the family that you grew up around, you just instinctively take the position you always have, & no matter how old you are you will ALWAYS see them just as if you were still kids... For instance, I am the oldest sister of 5 . My sister Jor is the baby & we are the only 2 girls. When we are around one another I instinctively boss her around - she acts like a spoiled brat & narcs me out every chance she gets... My brother who is 11 months younger than moi is the middle child & acts as such. He is pushy, moody & acts out to get attention. He is also my mothers favorite child whom can do no wrong, so it forces me to antagonize him to try & get him in trouble- to no avail!!! ... They are both kids to me & we all act just as we did in grade school when we lived together... I have tried to break this bondage of our youth, but there just ain't no sense, its the way it is & always will be I guess- it (whatever 'IT' is) will always be their fault & not mine!!.
I am really curious to know if it's that way for other families too?!
I love being here, but I know why it is that I live 10 hours away!! ;)
OK we are off to the local pizza joint for my niece's party in a few!!
I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend & I'll see ya in Oklahoma!
( Well I will be there, you will be wherever it is that you are when you read my next post that I 'll be typing from my laptop, which is in Oklahoma where I live... :) Hehehe... ( I know, I'm weird, but I heard that knowing it is half the battle!)
Oh & before I forget , thank you so much Ang, for 'Guest Posting' for me whilst I am away!! You are solely responsible for my latest addiction of you tube videos with the cutest kids in them!!! Uhhh, thanx ;)

I am really working on forgiving her in spite of her NOT deserving it. Not an easy task and I am not about to say that I have it down, I don't yet. But I do know God is faithful.. (honestly, I say this more for my benefit than for you...)
I am also trying to be thankful that these other relationships have been culled from my life because as a Christ Follower we are called to forgive & love. I have recieved neither from them...
Recently I have once again been faced with something that I am ill equipt to handel. I am going through something with one of my daughters that has overwhelmed me in a way that I cannot even describe. I just keep clinging to the scriptures about teaching them about Him and they will not depart from it. But I am ANGRYYYYY! I know that's not the "Christian" thing to say, but I'm being totally honest here as the tears stream down my face. I'm angry and so confused/ I don't know how to do this. I have no idea what I'm doing and I am fighting the fleshly instinct I have to cut & run......
I don't know why I'm sharing this with all of you, except to say that I am drowning and would really love it if you would pray for me. I am so tired of trying to fight this on my own , so I am bringing it out into the light.
If you feel compelled to talk to me about any of this, I will be happy to share with you what's going on with my girl, I could surly use the council, but I will not be going into anymore detail about the frienemey, I would very certainly sin in talking further about it....
Thanks peeps and I appreciate you... LA
Do Not Fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God.I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Lil Miss P has taken full advantage of her daddy and I being home, in bed - basically at her beck and call..... As soon as Big A could sit up and focus she had his undivided attention in between trips to the bathroom...
She lost her top front tooth this week and now has the cutest lisp...
