I've had it!!!!

I officially have the rudest neighbor EVER!!

Yes, I do mean the one with the dog! Ugh....

I was getting ready to take a shower when I looked out the bathroom window (for some reason there is a window in our tub/shower stall...I dont like it, but it's there) Anyways, I look out the window...and along comes fat, lazy *bad word bad word* neighbor lady! With her stupid dog....if I wasnt already in the shower...I so would have gone out there! The nerve! And everytime a car drove past she'd look at it...like, "Is that them?" So HELLO....you KNOW it's rude...and wrong..and to be honest I'm sure it's not legal....maybe I should ask my uncle Vince...he was (is??) the code inforcer here in town...he'd know if I can make a complaint!

After I got out I went to our shed to try and get the for sale sign out from when we bought them house...but there are shingles and wood on it...so I couldnt budge it...but I WILL get it out...and when I do I'm making Miss Rudeness a sign "MY YARD IS NOT YOUR DOG'S TOILET!"
If anyone else can think of anything wittier to put on the sign let me know...I'm all about wittiness!

Ok....and to show I'm not a total meany...I'll put some cute pics of my nephew on here that I did up! :)

God is Good...and when is God good???

Mom and I decided on our way home from southern Ohio today that we werent done shopping! It didnt matter that we'd driven about 2 hours each way and didnt buy much...we wanted to go over an hour NORTH of where we live!
Alex prayed for a safe trip for Mom, Nehemiah and I. We hop in my car and head North. We got lost....turning around several times LOST. And I told Mom it was only God's grace we did get lost! We'd gone through an intersection twice and still wasnt sure where we were when Mom called my sister to get directions and off we go....only to stop before that intersection....where there was a 4 or 5 car pile up. Right where we had been only minutes before! I told Mom that from the looks of it, it happened not long after we'd gone through!
And to add to our adventure we got stopped! At a parade. At 7 at night. Did I mention it's a Tuesday?! Ok...maybe it was a Vet's Day parade....but it sure threw us for a loop! LoL.
It just was one more way God showed me that His hand is ALWAYS on me...and ALWAYS protecting me...even when I dont know it!
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

I've become my Mother...and I'm glad

Growing up I always wondered why Mom "stocked up" on stuff...I mean come on? Did we really need so many bottles of soap under the sink? Or all that meat, and toilet paper? And garage sales were just. not. cool!

Now? I am in the real world! haha! I love a good bargain at a garage sale! And my cupboards? Umm...yeah...full! For my birthday I told my husband I wanted a deep freeze so I could stock up food for winter. Cuz, let's be serious, who wants to take an infant out in the snow if they dont have to?! My hubby's first responce was a total male thing...."I can get it! We have 4 wheel drive" Ummm....dear?! You work 12 hours a day....not gonna happen, thanks though!

I get excited when I save money! Especially when I save more than I spend!! Even if I already have "enough" at home! Saturday my hubby and I were at Meijer when I saw that laundry soap and toilet paper were on sale! My dear, sweet husband says, "Dont we have toilet paper?" Yeah....but it's open....which means....we'll run out! haha! And then he was the one to put the laundry soap away, he comes up to me and says "Honey? I thought we needed that laundry soap?" Oh we will dear... "Maria? We have 6 bottles already!" LOL LOL Hmmm...ok...so maybe that IS alot...but better for me to buy that than say, a new outfit hmmm???
