         Hmm.......  So, it seems as if it has been a while since I have decided to blog!  I can't believe that it is almost Halloween already and summer decided to fly right by us.  My life for the past several months has been taken over by football, football and MORE football.  Not that I am complaining because I really do like watching my boys play and I just love their teams.  It's amazing how 1 team can be 0-7 and another one of my son's is going to the "super bowl" of the jr. leagues and his team is 9-0. 
         I guess life is a lot like football.  One minute everything seems gloomy and dismal and then within a minute it can change and you can feel like you are on top of the world as a champion.  Being a champion has been a little hard for me lately.  I began a new way in my life.  I am now an Advocare 24 challenge goer.  I am only on day 9 but I have lost 3 pounds and seem to be at a stand still.  I hope the next 14 days are just as good.  Some days I think "I would much rather have that cookie" and other days I think "I can do this!"  Crazy how the mind works like this.
        Not only are we still in football mode, my 2nd son is going to be having eye surgery in December, which happens to be the same day that my husband is leaving on a hunting trip.  To this, I am ok.  I know he feels guilty leaving us but honestly, I think it is best he is gone.  I will have to devote all of my attention to my son and he will be missing a week of school.  Not only that but I will need to have my home all Christmas decorated and ALL of the presents bought before this surgery.  A challenge indeed but I am up to it!
         So, yes there is A LOT going on in our lives right now but we are healthy and happy and living 1 day at a time.  Children keep me busy.  Church keeps me busy but I wouldn't have it any other way!
