Well as an update to what is happening in my life... not a whole lot - LOL! Weight wise - I'm still holding in the mid 160's... I'm happy there. I would like to have a better pooping schedule (yeah TMI for some) but I'm still working on balancing fluids/fiber and I really think my TOM/hormones play a big part in it. Speaking of TMI and TOM - I have a feeling I'm heading to the 'change' - no TOM for the last couple months. Also NO I'm not pregnant - LOL!
Hosted the 'Gather' last weekend - smaller than I expected - WAY smaller - LOL - but with the economy, traveling and I just haven't been putting in too much of a presence on the forums recently. Those that came though - I'm REALLY am glad you made it!! (even those that came on Friday and Sunday - LOL) I enjoyed the food and friendship and look forward to getting together outside of a 'gather'.
Still needing prayers though - Gary has been working SO hard... but it takes time to put in bids and WAIT for answers... the waiting SUCKS!! Bureaucracy works SLOWLY though... and in triplicate - LOL!! We are also waiting for Momma's social worker to contact us - again that is a wait - 3 to 4 month wait!! Grrrr!! So at this point I'm looking around the house and property thinking - Mmmm I wonder if we could sell that? How much would we get? Would it be worth it? Would we regret it? If we don't - would we regret it more? This is where the trust in God comes in - that he will 'provide' - not by gifting it (such as a lottery ticket - although I wouldn't toss it away - LOL) but by giving us ideas of the direction we need to go... such as the businesses. Providing us with opportunities to provide for ourselves. Directing our thoughts (if we listen)... I must admit - that is one thing I do miss... going to church. (there is no way we could take Momma - and I would want to go w/Gary) Not so much the church we use to go to - but the reading and contemplation of the Bible and the words within. I guess more of a Bible Study w/communion :) I don't seem to do well studying on my own - there is always 'other' things I find myself doing... Maybe I need to start putting THAT first - or at least try it for a while.
