Sick number one this season

Well I am sick. IDK really how to describe how I am sick. I think I have a fever and my throat hurts. Basically I am ignoring one of the school districts that is calling me to sub today. Its for an educational aide. I have never heard of it. Plus I would only make 10 bucks an hour. Uhh hello I would rather have the 90 bucks for the whole day(or 100) gee thanks. Please pray that I start to feel better soon. I do have a sub position for tomorrow-5th grade Math. Uhh yeah IDK what I got myself into. I def. am nervous about it though. Math is my worst subject! Havent worked out since Friday. O boy and I am barely eat much as well.

PRAY PRAY PRAY that I am healed quickly!

In two weekends is the youth groups convention in Cbus. O boy, me watching out for girls in a hotel room and make sure they stay outta trouble. This shall be entertaining and Im sure I wont get a wink those evenings too!!

Havent been running much this week. Have been focusing on strength training!!

Friday I learned how to make Taco Salad!1 Its so yummy!! I went to CP that evening with a few friends and it was fun!! Last night I went to a hayride which was really fun but cold!!

Well I failed at trying not to eat sweets. I lasted a whole week, and ate a few cookies last night at the hayride :( Just want to beat myself up :( I feel like such a failure :(

Fall smells

Yesterday and today I have subbed!! I am def. so wiped out. Who knows what the rest of my week will look like. I have ran the past three days. I def. want to build up as much mileage as I can before we get snow here in lovely OHIO. I dont have a gym membership(I need to get one) and then maybe running this winter will happen.

I have been bored all evening, so I decided I would bake. I asked my mom via text if she likes muffins with cinnamon and she said I LOVE cinnamon!! I found this website and made these :),184,156179-244207,00.html

I will post pictures later this week :)

So I have a funny story--On Saturday evening I was texting my mom and this is how a conversation went:

Me-Can I get a fly shot this week?
Mom-You want to be immune from flies? yeah sure

Hahaha I still cant believe that I said this. I am such a weird person. It was pretty funny if you ask me.

Why are Christiam commercials already being played? It hasnt even been Halloween yet?!

Mommy for the weekend

This past week has been CRAZY for real-
Sunday-church and then went to a hang out evening with some friends
Wednesday-subbed and church
Friday-Went to someone special, Halloweekends at Cedar Point with a friend and then went to my youth pastors house to start my mommy weekend.

So a few weeks ago, the youth pastor and his wife asked me if I could watch their girls while they went on staff retreat in VA beach(I am so incredibly jealous fyi) I told them I could watch them over the weekends. Well Friday evening I got there, got the low down of the instructions and went to bed. Saturday-got up, got ready and made eggs :D then went to my house to get my play binder, got smoothies at Mickey D's(coffee for the adult ;) and then went to practice from 930-1. Came home, I ate lunch, then we played House, made Chocolate chip muffins for breakfast and then cleaned up and took a walk. We then came home, ate cereal for dinner, then I took them to get ice cream. We bathed, had a tea party and went to bed. Bed time was so insane. They wouldn't go to sleep, they kept getting up, talking, walking around and of course I kept waking up all throughout the night, and I am so exhausted today!!! BOO!! Its okay though. I am so grateful I have Tim, Meg, their two girls and their son in my life. They are like a second family to me for real. I love those kids so dearly!!! Today I am going to go for a run(fingers crossed) clean, possibly do a load of my clothes and maybe go over to a friends house to hang out after dinner. This week is full of working out(need to lose some MAJOR weight), subbing for sure at least once this week, youth group and a hayride on Saturday.

Starting yesterday I have given up sweets, chips, and all junk food until after April 22nd. I first off need to lose some weight, and I want to be healthier. I am also running a half marathon on that day, and I want to cut it out of my diet, so that I am not a slow poke zombie when it comes down to running in April. I will post every Saturday or Sunday about my eating and such. If I slip one day, please dont get mad at me. I know I am going to cry alot and be angry and upset at myself when I do so dont give me poo.

This past week has been SO crazy!!!
Sunday-church/hung out with friends.
Monday-subbed for Kindergarten!!
Yesterday- I drove down to Cbus to meet/hangout/grab lunch with Ruth aka RedsoxWife. It was so fun!! This was my first time meeting a fellow blogger. It was great to talk about life, teaching, families, and get to meet each other!! I got to meet little D and omygoodness I so fell in love with him!! He is so adorable!! I def. want to meet up with Ruth again!!!

Today I am helping with the Children's Christmas Program, babysitting and who knows what else!!I know tomorrow I am going to church and then to a hayride!!! Whoo!!!

Okay, so I dont know if I have spoken a lot about my faith but I really want to talk about it today. I am a Christian, I follow the Lord. I have been saved by Jesus Christ and he has forgiven me of my sins. He has washed me clean/whole. I believe in the Bible, his truth and his Word. I have asked Jesus into my heart almost 7 years ago. Oct. 28th, 2004 is when I became 'born' again. I am so in love with my Father. He has gotten me through so much in my life-college, parents getting sick, losing my dad and my grandpa, getting into the Teaching Program, my mission trip in NJ, student teaching, leading bible studies, graduating college. I loving serving the Lord and helping kids/youth grow in their walks in the Lord. If you have any questions, you are more than welcomed to ask them or anything!! I am so in love with God, and I seriously dont know where I would be today if I didnt have him in my life!!

John 3:16-God so loved the World that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes shall not perish but have eternal life.

Healing in your hands

Today is beautiful. The sun is shining. I got to sleep past 5:30 today--till 815!! I got to play with kids for 2 WHOLE hours today. I got to hear Christmas music for 2 hours this morning* my fave :) * I can finally wear my contacts again after 3 weeks without them.

This week has been rough. I am PMSing. I have eaten so many sweets this week-Tues, Wed and last night. I barely ever eat sweets and I have been inhaling them like they are going to go out of style. I have been running, but its been hard. My legs feel so tired, so weak. I just feel so heavy, so fat when I run. I need a running buddy. Wish I could find one here in Ohio.

I really really miss my dad right now. I know that I am grateful that he isn't in pain from his cancer, but at the same time, I miss him. It is hard to see my friends with their dads, little girls with their dads. I just wish I could get a dad hug, dad advice, dad love. It really sucks.

I went to a funeral on Tuesday for a sweet little 10 month old baby girl name Madison. My friend Hannah sang this song called Healing in Your Hands. I know that one day, I will heal from this. I have God's love, his strength, his beauty and grace. I posted the words underneath. Just let them really go deep into your soul. Enjoy. Happy Sat!!

No mountain, no valley, no gain or loss we know
could keep us from Your love
No sickness, no secret, no chain is strong enough
to keep us from Your love
to keep us from Your love

How high, how wide
No matter where I am, healing is in Your hands
How deep, How strong,
And now by Your grace I stand, healing is in Your hands

Our present, our future, our past is in Your hands
We're covered by Your blood
We're covered by Your blood

How high, How wide
no matter where I am, healing is in Your hands
How deep, How strong
And now by Your grace I stand, healing is in Your hands

In all things, we know that.
We are more than conquerors.
You keep us by your love.
You keep us by your love.

Is anyone out there?

I feel like noone reads my blog anymore. Do I need to do something weekly-a triple tangent, a weekly recipe, a weekly workout recap, a giveaway..what do I need to do in order to attract people to comment, to read my blogs? I feel like lately I have been writing this just for myself. I know that I am real in my posts, but its hard for me to find the words to say things. I am not good at writing letters to people, or journal, or story telling/writing. I really am trying.

Subbing today for a 3rd grade teacher this afternoon. Im tired. Im cold. My fingers are so stiff.
