Randomness of 2011

Yesterday I made chocolate chip cookies....I used the same recipe as I always do...and I don't know what cookies were flat and chewy...not the normal puffy cookies I make. I added the baking strange.  They are still good...just not as pretty.

Hubs and I are trying to make some tough decisions right now in regards to "Y". Unfortunately, we have found out about some very disturbing issues that have been going on and are having to practice tough love right now. We are hoping and praying that we are doing the right thing. My stomach has been in knots since yesterday and Hubs didn't sleep at all last night. I now understand what my parents must have gone through with me. Sorry Mom and Dad for putting you through such difficult times.  The question has now become, do we have him sent to our house and remove him from the environment that he is in, or do we try and wait it out and see how well his Mom and Stepdad handle the issues.  Either isn't going to be easy.  So prayers are appreciated right now.

It is snowing here...and I'm not sure when it is going to stop. I made it to work..making it back home may be another issue.  It's not bad once I get on the main road. The hard part is getting out of our subdivision and up the hill on our street.  The snow sure is pretty though...wishing we had a snow day here.

Started running again. Yes....I am doing a 5K at the end of the month...need to start a great workout regimen. Can't say I am loving it yet...but when your pants start getting's time to do something. Buying new clothes is not an option for me right now.

Thirty-One Gifts just revealed their new Spring/Summer Catalog. I must say it is probably my FAVORITE one yet!  I can't wait to get my hands on some of the products!!! It just keeps getting better and better. Aren't these fun colors??? Check out my blog on the right hand side to find out the special I am offering for all new consultants who sign up on January 15th!

I didn't make any New Year's resolutions this year.  Did you? I have some goals that I have set for myself...but I set them this past fall.  So not sure they technically count as New Year's resolutions!?

Excited for this Friday! I have a date with Little "I". His birthday is later this month and his birthday present choice was to go see Sesame Street Live again. So this Friday I am taking off of work and spending the day with him and we are going to go see Elmo and all his friends! I can't wait to see what "I" does when he sees them in person.  Should be lots of fun!

It is breafast time and I am already thinking about dinner tonight. Thinking minestrone soup sounds really good. I was watching the food channel over Christmas and one of the chefs was making this.....going to have to try a new recipe tonight.

I think that is enough of my randomness for now.  Happy Monday to you all!!

I will definitely keep you, Hubby & Y in my prayers. I am right there with you when I think of what I did to my parents during that stage of my life. It's so hard to know what is "right" but ideally when you do it with love and with his best interest at heart you are doing the best thing. I hope that the solution will be made clear for you guys, just know that God will be with you every step of the way.

Can you believe this snow - better yet I can't believe we made it all the way into January before this happened, lol. They say it will continue thru tomorrow morning, nuts! I hope you have a safe trip home girl!

Love ya - hope you have a great week!

Will be praying for "Y". My son is 15 and we have been very blessed, so far so good. Teen years are the hardest I think. They want some independence but yet they are still children. It's a tough time but I am sure you will get through it will a lot of patience and love.

I'll be praying for your situation w/ Y. I hope everything works out.

Yay for your 5K! I need to kick my butt into gear soon, or none of my pants are going to fit.

Have fun seeing Elmo! Sesame Street Live must be making the rounds because I've made A LOT of Elmo shirts lately!!

Be careful on your drive home. Stay warm!
