So, I have always thought that I wanted to be a stay at home mom. Now, after having 4 snow days in a row, I'm not really sure just what I want to do. The whole time I thought about how much school work I needed to be doing, but it is all still sitting out in my car and was only moved to allow room for the dog in the front seat. So, instead of doing school work, I thought I would read, only I finished my book on Tuesday and had 3 more days of "nothing" to do. So, I was totally addicted to facebook. I know, it's pathetic, but when the dog doesn't talk back and you live alone, there is nothing else to do. Especially Tuesday night when the cellular connection didn't work either. I mean, I went to the gym every day, but still there was not much interaction. I even went to the paint store, still not much human interaction.

However, I was lucky enough to have lunch with some friends yesterday who also went to the gym with me. Then last night, I got to go to a MaryKay/Tastefully Simply party and my Ester Bible Study. The few days off, I was able to without any rush spend some time in the Bible with Ester in my Beth Moore study. I have not been very consistant in my quiet time and devotionals. I had strayed away with the expection of my Wednesday afternoon date with Romans. Even then, I didn't have as much time as I would have liked. So, hopefully the past 4 days have helped in developing the love of reading the Bible. I am excited to get my Ester book out tonight and dig into it again.

On a funny note...I hung out with Ann Marie McDonald today (who was not happy that I forgot her birthday was Wednesday). She was so funny. She said (after Addie would not lay with her on her black couch) "How about, we change places and I live in this compartment and I lay on your red couch not my black couch". I mean I love my compartment...but yeah.

Andrew is now on his way to BG, and this is awesome since he did not oget to come due to the weather in Evansville Wednesday night. YEAH!!!!! HUMAN INTERACTION all weekend:)

^^Please pray for my family up in Evansville. My parents, one set of grandparents, and brother are staying with another aunt and uncle while the rest of the family is spread amongst other places. My cousin had a lot of family staying with her, then she lost her power today. So, that is even more people misplaced. Her sister, who has 2 small children also lost her power. My parents, like most parents, had a freezer in the basement with all kinds of meat, that now has to be cooked. It's 46 degrees in my parents house. It's not pretty up there and it could be weeks. So please pray for God to grant patience to those without and those with that are housing other people. Pray for the Utility workers who are working around the clock to get this fixed. Pray for things to get better soon.

The house!!!

Here are updated pictures of our house. It is so exciting to think that it will be done in less than 2 months. We got a refrigerator a couple weeks ago. It is the kind with the freezer on the bottom and the fridge on the top. I am excited about that too!! I can't wait for some of the walls to have color on them. We are planning on painting a wall in our room choc. brown and a wall upstairs red:) YAY! Everyday being here in Bowling Green, I want to start packing, but then I realize how much longer I am going to have to live here and I don't think I am ready to live out of boxes yet. I am going to attempt to explain what the pictures are, but it's going to be hard to visualize since it is all just drywall.

There is a little brick up, but it got SUPER cold
and they had put a hold on the brick.
the garage, and yes there is a furance and hot
water heater now...
This is looking from the kitchen into the living
room. You can see the front door and the view
from the front window.

Looking from the kitchen into the dining room. Our bedroom is the left door and the laundry room is the right door. The laundry room leads to the garage.
This is the kitchen. The window looks into the
back yard and the sink will be in front of that.
The dishwasher will be to the right of the window
and the microwave/range will be in the middle of
the left wall. The fridge right next to the wood wall
that currently has no drywall. There will also be
an islandout in the middle.
