Current Thoughts & Struggles

I'm listening to Shane & Shane. I love their music. It always makes me feel better. I remember blasting it when I had just gotten my car. I loved it.

Anyways, Jordan is playing at Notes tonight. I had to stay home to:
Clean the living room
Write a five page paper on the interview that I did with Amanda :)
Prepare a presentation for Tuesday
Study for my midterm on 9 chapters that I have not read for my art class

I am so stressed right now. Please pray for me. I got myself into this hard spot - I should have been reading all along, but now I am freaking out.

I need to get more sleep. It's so hard to stay sane and function without sleep. Any good tips on how to make sure you get to bed early? I've been saying that I needed to all week but I haven't made it happen.

Also, I've been having a LOT of wrist pain in the past two weeks. Any ideas on how to make it feel better? I feel like it may be involved with all of the typing I've had to do lately. Owww.

Has anyone seen Mama Mia? My mom told me that it was great, but I have never seen it.

Jordan and I had a good weekend visiting family. I saw Nanny, Grandaddy and my cousins April (who's my age) and Kenny (who's a couple years younger than me). We also saw a lot of Jordan's family. He had such a good time with his sister. I'm so happy he got to see her. He misses his family so much.

Please keep Jordan in your prayers as well. He is very tired and stressed out right now with everything that is going on at Casual Male. He had a really busy week last week, a full weekend with going out of town and officiating a wedding, a busy day today with church, choir, and playing at notes, and next week, he has to work 52 HOURS!!! on top of all of his church work. I hope he can do this... Lord, please prepare him for this week and help him to get as much rest as he needs.

This song has been on my mind. It's beautiful.

White as Snow
Jon Foreman

Have mercy on me, oh God 
According to Your unfailing love 
According to Your great compassion 
Blot out my transgressions 

Create in me a clean heart, oh God 
Restore in me the joy of Your salvation 

The sacrifices of our God are a broken and a contrite heart 
Against You and You alone have I sinned 

Would You create in me a clean heart, oh God 
Restore in me the joy of my salvation 

Wash me white as snow 
And I will be made whole 
Wash me white as snow 
And I will be made whole


  1. Advice on how to get sleep? Have a couple of kids, then by 8:00 you'll be ready to pass out, and by 9:00 you will pass out.

    Sorry you're so stressed, hang in there chick! Enjoy life before you have kids. Because then it's not about you anymore!

  2. Hang in there. I am praying! God will get you through this time. . . Sleep is a hard one for me, I can't seem to sleep these days as I wake up hurting. UGH! Good luck w/ the classwork!!

  3. Hey, Ornament premiere is when we focus all our sales on the ornaments for this year and lots of people come and buy their ornaments (or do lawaway) and we usually have refreshments, etc.

    yes, we've tried nose strips, and spray and everything else there is to try! he has a deviated septum so nothing will help (except surger and he's too chicken to do it! :) also, there isn't a guarantee that the surgery will work...blah blah blah....meanwhile I DON'T SLEEP!! :)
