Yesterday was stinky. Things just weren't going right at work. I was having an emotional breakdown, seriously! lol! Okay, maybe not that serious, but it felt like I was about to have one. I even had a dream that I quit my job. That's what I get for working 10 hrs straight on paperwork. Ugh!
Today I woke up and it's a great great day! I am astonished by my sales on eBay. I have one neck tie that cost about $1.99 and now it's selling for $96 and the bidding isn't even done! Woo hoo! Every time I see this and then I see the same brand selling for around $20 on eBay, I know I have favor. God's favor.
I just wanted to share my happy day. I hope your all having one too, or will wake up tomorrow with one at your doorstep! =)

I am so swamped with work and preparations at home that I have been neglecting my blog.
Today is my 3rd year job anniversary.... and I am celebrating by sitting with piles and piles of paperwork around me. WooHoo!
I will post about our early Church Family Thanksgiving dinner that we are having tonight. Yum! Turkey, ham, yams, cranberry sauce... oh joy!

On November 8, 2006 I wrote…
Jane Austen once said - Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery.
I may have spoken too soon. I have written about misery and sometimes guilt. But that’s life, right?
I started this with no outside viewers. My family would read it occasionally and maybe some strangers who passed through. One thing you would probably never know, I am extremely private. When I got my first comment from an “almost stranger”, I felt like someone was reading my inner most thoughts, I was petrified! lol. But then it donned on me, I wrote it right there for everyone to see! So I just trekked on and here I am today. Not so private and yet, I don’t really care.
I rambled on about my life, death, family, my job, my God, my church, holidays, tumors, books, weddings, eBay, co-workers, scrap booking, my dislikes, my weirdness, vacations, birthdays, kids, books, Jane Austen, fires…
It has been a good year in blogging. It wasn’t without the downs of life, but that just means things can only get better.
My favorite part of someone else’s blog this year was from God Things, devotionals by Shirley Buxton:
Man. What creatures we are. Of what divine and soaring ways are we
capable; yet into what ugly and deep depravity have we sunk. Man. Made in
the image of God. Made a little lower than the angels. Man, God’s friend, an
evening walker in the garden, His companion. Man, cast out, dying, sinful
now and clothed by bloodshed. But…rooting around inside us, struggling
fiercely with our fallenness, is the shinning—the glorious, the rising, the
giftings, the goodness…the distinct image of God.

Thanksgiving is almost here!
I am so excited. I love this time of the year. The season is beautiful and so full of family.
My siblings and I still make Christmas list. It doesn't matter that we range in age from 22 to 32. We still make out list and make sure everyone in the family has a copy.
At Thanksgiving our extended family picks name and buys each other gifts. This was is easier since our family is huge.
I am looking forward to the next couple of weeks. We are getting ready for our church Thanksgiving dinner, family Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas preperations...
I have so much to be Thankful for this year... I will go into detail later on.

We had food, games, and prizes for the best dressed family, best dressed adult, best-dressed kids, and the best carved pumpkin. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the best-dressed kid or family. But, I did get a ton of pictures of the cutest little kiddies dressed up. I was a pirate, no pictures of me since i was behind the camera the entire night. My mom made the Carebear outfit that my brother is wearing. Took her a couple of hrs. She blew us away!
