He's home, yay!

So the hubby has been gone for a few weeks for work and is now home....yay! It's hard to be home all the time with kids and not being able to leave the house alone, ever. Sometimes thats all I need, to get in the car and go somewhere without having to worry about shoes, socks, coats, and carseats, to just get in and go. And then I miss the kids when I am gone. Go figure. So I am planning the MOPS Swap, a huge MOPS garage sale at Lighthouse with another gal named Susan, and I think it will go really well. Its like my one big assignment from MOPS this year, and I'm excited. I have been planning, and making notes, and figuring stuff out. Need to have a meeting with the gals who did it last year, and pinpoint some things, but its really awesome. A big room full of stuff that has been donated and is up for grabs. And the teen moms need some of this stuff so badly, it's rewarding to get them what they need. TTFN! Kimmie Sue

Who am I anyways???

I know my name, and where I live and all that-of course, but my question is who am I really, what am I supposed to be doing?? I take care of my home, and my kids, but I feel like I should be doing something else, so I took on other people's kids, and work to pay bills. We scrimp on everything to pay bills, is there more to life than bills?? We live in a dumpy house, and just work work work to pay for this house that neither of us really like to live in. We are thankful for having a roof over our head, and a back yard for the kids, but our house is a serious money pit. We are talking about selling it or renting it out, and moving to Oregon so Curt can attend bible college. He really wants to be a pastor, always has, so I feel it is important to support that. I'm not sure what kind of pastors wife I will be, but I'm sure it will be OK. God is wonderous and amazing, and always provides for us, always. I feel like we are being drawn to Oregon for some reason, don't know why, but I am sure it is God. Curtis feels the same way, so we are planning on moving this summer, just have to get the money pit house ready to rent. Or sell. But in this economy who knows. I guess I will be figuring out who I am soon, I am a wife, a mother, a daughter of the most glorious God in the entire world. He will give me direction soon, I am sure of it, or he will just keep me mothering for a little while, and make larger plans later. Only He knows.
