My baby is 3

My baby turned 3 yesterday.

That means he isn't a baby, but a toddler. I am going to miss having a baby, but know that I am definitely not wanting another one. My 2 are plenty for our family.

The kids are getting so big and life is going too fast. I want life to slow down again so that we can enjoy it more. We are always so busy with everything. I'm hoping that when we find out where God has planned for us to live next and we get settled in with Joe's new career then we will be able to sit back and relax a little more often.

We are still waiting to find out what God's plan is for the next phase of our life. No word today from the company in Fort Mill. Joe did get a call from a company in Jacksonville, that wants to do a phone interview tomorrow. Not sure how I feel about staying here. Not sure where I would want to live if I had the choice either though. I'm hoping that God gives a huge flashing neon sign as to what we are suppose to do though.

I'm ready for some change so I don't mind the idea of moving. Joe on the other hand hates the idea of having to move again. He says if God's plan is for us to stay in this area then we can look at buying a bigger piece of land and building a house on it. I don't see this happening with the price of land what it is around this area though. Will just have to wait and see what takes place.

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.
