odds and ends...

Nothing really exciting to report these days. We had a CRAZY Christmas schedule and now that is all over. We are off to a conference tomorrow for three days. I am really ready for a good break and that will come after the New Year (when we return from the conference Rocky's brother and his family will be here for a visit).

Because of our schedule I haven't been able to work out for more than a week now. OH I HATE when our schedule gets in the way of working out. It can't be helped right now, but when the new year rolls around, I am back at the gym every single chance I can get. I am however maintaining my weight just fine, even with the holidays and all the food. I never over ate, and even enjoyed some sweets! We actually bought Dr. Pepper as a little treat for ourselves, but I am totally in control of not drinking them too much! I don't know why this will power and real desire to be healthy showed up so suddenly this year, but I am SO glad it did. I really enjoy eating right and excercising now. Love it!

Just thought I'd check in. The most adorable photos and news are over on Hana's blog though!

I forgot to add....

I forgot to tell you guys in the last post just WHY my sweet hubby's present is supposed to benefit both of us! The reason is because I was driving him nuts telling him almost daily how much I wanted one! He said it benefits both of us, I get one early, and he doesn't have to listen to me ask for one until Christmas day! He also says I was calling him names like "slow-poke" but I don't think that is true.... hehehehehehehe He's imagining things!

My sweet hubby!

I got an early Christmas present! My hubby is sooooooooooo sweet, and so FUNNY! It was delivered as we were walking out the door the other day and he told me it was my Christmas present but I get to open it early. I thought I knew what it was, I've been asking for an mp3 player so I can listen to music while I work out. But he gave me some hints through out the day while we were gone that had me confused. Then in the evening just before I opened the box he gave me one more hint that had me convinced it was NOT an mp3 player. He said, "This is for the good of both you AND me!" And I'm like, well an mp3 player for me isn't going to benefit him any. Well I open it up and after trying to figure out what it was (I'd never seen this brand name before) I finally found it WAS an mp3 player. It is a TINY little iRiver s10! I LOVE it, I've only been able to work out with it once, but it was pure heaven, to worship with my praise songs and favorite music as I excercised! I think the people around me were slightly entertained by my singing (quietly) and dancing as I worked out!

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

The dreaded month of the year when we are always so busy I just know I am not going to make it! This is actually not quite as bad as last year, but it's still pretty bad. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!!!!!!!!

In the midst of concert after concert after concert, I am still determined to keep up my workout and healthy eating. I am doing sooooooooooo good! Portion control, totally under control! I don't know when was the last time I logged in my weight, but I am in the 63's this week! I have decided my final goal is 60 kilo, but I am sure it will take me a while to get there, just taking it slow and ENJOYING feeling so good and being healthy.

Ministry is so fun right now, so many things going on! I am really enjoying the chance to minister to mothers with young kids. We are praying about starting a blog on child raising! So many parents are struggling and just don't know what to do! Yea, I know, like we need ONE MORE thing to do! But this one is so VITAL!

I started advent with Hana today. She loves it! this girl loves the Bible so much, it is so fun to watch her learning and remember stories. Her favorite Bible story is Noah's Ark right now, and every person she sees in her children's Bible, she asks if it is Noah and if it is "rain-rain"?!!! We are going to be reading stories about Jesus all month this month, and today we started with when he was 12 years old at the temple. She kept saying "Jesus uh-oh!" because she understood that he was lost and his mommy and daddy were looking for him!

I am off to bed, my new earlier bed time! We are doing a QTbaby store tomorrow. I will update on how that goes, and details of it later too. We are setting up inside a small shopping center!
