Catching Up!

Wow, I can't believe it's been since AUGUST that I blogged last! Boy, I guess I've been busy! Yes, yes I was........I used to be a stay at home mom, but now.......NOW I am a working mom again! That's right........I am in the working world again! I recently was hired at a local grocery store pharmacy here in Oklahoma. It's been awhile since working in a pharmacy, but I think I'm doing fairly well to say the least. I am getting excited because this job will help to build our savings account, emergency money, and the girls' college funds.........hubby is putting money into the savings account as well.....we also would LOVE to put at LEAST a 20% down payment on a house again someday, but if we can put down MORE than the 20%, that would be nothing but amazing!! A big thanks to Mr. Dave Ramsey for helping us to get serious about being debt free and banking our cash instead of spending it all at this time.......there will be a time to spend, but right now.....it's save, save, SAVE!!! Yay!! We are DEBT FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like I said, I am now working at a pharmacy..........works out pretty well actually, I work while the girls are in school.......and still be home with them after school to help with homework and love on them, OR find that they don't want to listen to anything mom says that day, lol.........aaahhh, don't ya just love kids?!! hehehee!! I do!! I really do love my girls.......yes, they flustrate me at times, but......hey, I prayed for patience.......and you know, God surely has a sense of humor cuz He always seems to want to test my patience with these girls, lol!! We have good times and not so good times....especially with the homework, lol. Are my kids the only ones to give problems when homework time comes around?? lol!! It's usually, we want to go out and play today!!! or....... I will do my homework after dinner, I promise!! Yes, mom seems to be a "softy" sometimes, but I think I can be stickler for homework. I want the best for my girls, but I do understand that school is sooooooo much harder these days, so much more is expected of the kids! Sometimes I think a little TOO much is expected of them! But......we'll get through this! I am also so very happy that the holidays are close by! I just LOVE the Holidays! Especially Christmas......it's my favorite! Thanksgiving is second! I love to go thru Pinterest and youtube to find holiday ideas, projects, diy gifts and such....for family and friends. Those are my "go to" places! Oooh, and I just LOVE the Dollar Tree....and Hobby Lobby.......those are both great stores, especially for holiday decorating!! Not sure what this year will hold for the holidays just yet, but I am excited to find out! Until next time! Take care and God bless you all! Lisa
