NOT ENOUGH TIME IN MY DAYS

I suppose that means I need to let some things go! But I won't or can't or it will slow down in November. That is what I keep telling myself.

This week has been scary.

We had our first cheer practices on Monday and Thursday.

First Girl Scout meeting on Tuesday

Seek meeting tonight at the school.

And to add to all that I found the perfect house I want to buy. We went to look at it twice this week and each time found more things to fall in love with. It is the PERFECT house for us and just what we have always wanted. The problem, I need to sell my home first. The house that we found is a little bigger than ours and it has 4 acres with it for a very good price. Unfortunately we don't have the 20% down without selling ours and getting a loan is not so easy anymore. A year ago it would not have been a issue to get another loan and keep this one to rent or sell later. Not now, they want your first born and a blood supply. Not really, but it has become more strict, especially since our county is considered a declining market. So it is not looking good on the loan front. I am going to stick a For sale sign in our yard this weekend just to see what happens. I am very sad about it because we have wanted to buy something like this for several years but couldn't afford it 2 years ago but now that the prices have dropped there are some amazing deals out there. That will be the issue with selling ours, our competition will be the foreclosures selling at such reduced prices. We are praying and God will allow what we need, maybe not what we want but he knows our needs !

On to more happy things. I am going to the Beth Moore simulcast tomorrow night and Saturday. I am really looking forward to it. She can sure light a fire under you and she is so so funny. I just love her to death. She has spoiled me with her bible studies. I don't want to do anyone else's because they are not like Beth. Silly huh?
Is anyone else going? I think they are hosting them all over the US and Canada. If you have never heard her speak outside of a bible study I would recommend you go. She is so in love with our Lord and has such a way of getting things out of scripture that I would never have thought of. I can hardly wait. I am going with my Mama, sister and 2 of my aunts. We will have such a great time.

Oh Project Runway is on. I gotta go.
Happy Friday
Blessings,
Pam

Oh Pam, I'll be praying for you on the home front, it sounds like a nice place, love the acreage! If it's meant to be, it will. I'm sending out the tag pad swap today so keep a eye out for it!

Hey Pam! Yay, how exciting to the possibility of a new home! I will put you on my prayer list!!

I was going to go but had 3 different people back out. The last one today. I ended up being so tired from working all this week for the first time in 8 years out of the home, I decided just to take it easy! I know it will be awesome! I love her too!
