It was a win/win! Yippee!! I LOVE FREE THINGS!! :)
We all made 2 blankets each...except Joseph...he was too young to participate! We'll just have to break down and BUY his ticket!!

It still works but...well, you know...it's just not perfect like it was.
One little phone call to the company and my new knob will be here in 7-10 days...free of charge.
Yippee!!! Kitchen Aid you rock! :o)

Jaye happened to have a really short day at the office for her so when she got home we started to do some yard work. It was nice being outside in the sun. We picked up sticks, cleaned up some leaves, and I even got the lawn mower out....I had to put the charger on for a bit but it started right up. We got the van cleaned up, swept it out. All and all a great start to well needed spring break and week away from work.

Seems that so much is going on, and with the old facebook accounts we have neglected our blog. Here is a run down:
· Church is going well, our pastor got a renewal vote this week, if he accepts he's good for another four years.
· The Hollands got a newer van, a 2002 Town and Country! It's nice, lots of cool gadgets inside! It's blue by the way, we've never had a blue car before.
· Looks like Anna's school is closing down which would move her to another school and add about an hour more bus ride....not a good thing. We got the official word tonight at the school board meeting.
· I'm losing another youth sponsor this month, they all seem to move away. It's hard on me.
I know it's not much but it's a step in the right direction. I'll work on being more updated on a regular basis.

Not that I want to get smarter...just to clean out my book collection!
Funny thing this book wasn't off my shelf...just recommended by Brian.
Plan A...And There's No Plan B by D. Robertson. You can get it here. It's a great book! Easy to read...lot's of stories! :) Although I already knew the "just" of it...I really needed reminded of it. I made a whole outline to put on here but thought...ahh, you should just read it yourself!! :) You'll be happy to know this one didn't find a place on our crowded bookshelf. It was too good to keep for ourselves and we passed it along!

The question is are you willing to risk for the sake of momentum? Is it easier to play it safe? I say if you start to build momentum, don't risk losing it. Do whatever you can to keep it. Even if it is a big risk.

Fox news. On their news program there is usually a story about American Idol. Is that news? It's like reporting "Plankton tries to steal the Krabby Patty recipe from Mr Krabs, but Sponge Bob saves the day."
The Wii. It's a video game. If you like bowling, go to the bowling alley. Iif you wanna exercise, exercise. Wanna play a video game, sit down and play a video game.
Beyonce if you were a boy, we really wouldn't care. But nice job on the Grammy's.
Quote from the sermon today, "My dad said the difference between me and God, God doesn't walk around thinking that he's me all day long." Kory Christensen.
Marion AT&T store: Brian, "I'd like to update my phone." AT&T guy, "Sorry, we can't do that, your mom needs to be here to sign the paper." (we are on a family plan) Brian "She lives in New York, can she sign the paper and send it in?" AT&T guy "Let me ask the manager." AT&T guy comes back, "No." Brian, "What can we do to work this out? How do we solve this problem?" AT&T guy, "Sorry, nothing we can do." AT&T offered only excuses no solutions.
Love the Grammy's. What a fun show.
Indiana North youth leaders: Love you all, you are amazing people!

I did read a couple books last year. "Mistaken Identity" was a great book and I even read through the "Twilight" series so I could see what all the hype was about. But these books didn't come from my collection, so they don't really count!
So, this is the year. I will read at least one book a month! It's not a big goal, but an attainable goal for me! After I read the book, it's outta here...pass it along...donate it...GONE! Well, of course, unless it's a really good read that I want to keep!! :)
Funny side note: I found this book of Japanese gift boxes. It has beautiful boxes that you cut out and fold together for gift giving. This was a gift from my sis-n-law at least 15 years ago and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I have kept it all these years saving these boxes for special occasions!! Many special occasions have come and gone but I still have this COMPLETE book! I think I have a problem...I may need help!
but Jessica and Wes got one of these.
They cashed in on these coupons quite a bit at first. But over the years these particular books have kinda been forgotten about. That was until yesterday when Wes had homework that needed completed. Out comes the coupon for me to finish his homework. It was only a poster that needed "assembled". He already had done the research but the "crafty" part was not his thing. He asked me if I would finish it for him. He even suggested that I could use my cricut. Enough said, he's growing up to be a smart man...giving me a chance to use my scapbooking supplies!
Anyway, these coupons books make great gifts. There is not a celebration that goes by at our house without a coupon book being given away. It's really fun to see what the kids come up with. I've even made one for Brian. They last quite a while...
this particular book dates back to '03!
