Good day

Today was a change-up with the weather, but I did love it even still. Rain is okay once in a while. C'mon, it's fall! Was pretty chilly again today and it just made me wanna cuddle under my fleece blanket all day and do nothing... but needless to say, there was much to do. Kyle and I got up this morning and headed over to look at the house my parents purchased... well actually it is a triple-decker home that they are renting out. And guess who is renting from them? My sister and her husband get the 2nd floor and guesie who gets the first? Haha, yep. We decided to rent from them, seeing as it is a MUCH nicer place than we have now and there are so many pros to the decision to move. Really, there are. I am so excited to get all of my things into there. For so long, Kyle and I have been living out of bins (well, our clothes have) and a lot of my furniture and other items have not yet made it out of my parent's attic because we don't have room for it here. All that to say, we are moving. And I'm so excited. Three weeks and I will be onto a first floor beautiful apartment with more space and my own porch!! Lol. I've been bugging Kyle to promise me we will buy pumpkins and mums to put on our porch... I think he's gotten the point. Haha.

We came home and tidied up the house a bit together (always so much more fun). I went and got bloodwork done this afternoon then headed to church to deliver my JOY club and Kid's Club snack. Fruit kabobs with a variety of fruit on them... along with a fruit dip. Went over really well with the older kids and adults... the young-ins weren't so fond of it, but it was better than a highly packed sugar sweet. :)

And now I have a chicken noodle soup simmering on the stove. Perfect for a cold, rainy evening. I decided to whip up some Parmesan biscuits as well. Mmm-mm.

It was freezing when I woke up this morning. That was probably because I left the windows open last night, thinking it would be nice for some fresh air. I think I got the air part of it just fine, but let's add cold to that. It really was freezing. I mean, yeah, we are used to all this warm weather, so of course our first really chilly morning is a shock! I woke up wicked excited about the weather though, and craved a hot drink. Everyone (and I mean, everyone) has been talking about the pumpkin spice coffee being out lately, so of course I craved a pumpkin spice latte. Fortunately for me, my husband was finding the need for a coffee as well.... and so we headed to DD to get our fill of yummy deliciousness. For some very strange reason he got an iced coffee (???) while I got the hot stuff. :)

It is such a gorgeous day, but I must say, this chilly air will take getting used to. I am still barefoot, and I am sure I will be for most of fall... but I have to admit, my feet are a bit chilly!

I am happy to say, that my husband gave his notice today and will be done working for his current job on Friday. If any of you know about his job, you know that it wasn't what it was made out to be in the beginning. It's been a very bumpy ride working for the company and there are a lot of confusing (not to mention illegal) ways they run their business, mostly in how they treat their employees. So he will be working for another transportation company the following week. We are hoping this makes things a little better, even though we are still looking for a full time job with benefits, because we really do need the health insurance. So we are happy to be making a move in the right direction, at least, and washing our hands of this other company!

Tomorrow is Saturday, and where has this week gone!? Sometimes the week drags on, but this week sure hasn't. Hope everyone is adjusting to the cooler weather... enjoy it!

Hopefully next post will contain more great news... ;)

Ahhh-llergies! :-|

I love this new set-up on blogger. It's so updated and cool... but will take a little getting used to! I know, it's been a long time. But to be honest, there is really nothing too exciting to blog. Except for the fact that this weather is magnificent and I LOVE fall to death.

We are still here - in the city - with the traffic - trying to figure life out. Kyle's been looking for a new job, but so far... well, you get the picture. I have one of my cleaning jobs back, so that is one more thing to put in the schedule, but I am still not as busy as I should be, really. Right now, allergy season is in full force, so I haven't been feeling too great. A few weeks ago, I noticed a lot of little itchy (annoying) red bumps all over the soles of my feet and the sides of my fingers. I couldn't figure out what it was, so after a week or so of itchy misery (it got waaay worse at night) I went to the doctor. And she said it was a case of eczema... a not-so-common case that usually only affects the hands and feet (hmmm) and gets worse at night (another hmm). I wasn't too thrilled with the solution. I was to take Benadryl every 4-6 hours (which makes me wicked drowsy!) and I was ordered a medicated hydrocortizone cream from the pharmacy... Didn't really help an awful lot, but it got me some better sleep, for sure. So those were a nasty coupla weeks right there.

And now. Now, I feel like itching my nose off and ripping my eyeballs out. I hate anything itchy... not to mention all this sneezing. Goodness...

But anyway, God is good. And so is my chocolate. But nothing is in comparison to God's goodness. He has provided for us and I know He always will.

Anyway, I'm going to wrap this one up and top it with a bow. ;) Hope everyone else is enjoying this gorgeous weather as much as I am. More to come hopefully soon...

Love and hugs to all!
