Under the Weather

We had a wonderful, relaxing Thanksgiving. I have so much I've been wanting to blog about but time has not been on my side lately. My week got off to a great start! I decided I would start getting up with Allen in the mornings to go work-out (yeah at 5am) and I felt great Monday & Tuesday. I am determined to lose weight this holiday season instead of gaining and Joyce Meyer's Everyday Living comes on Lifetime at 6am so I run/walk a 5K while watching Joyce. For the 2 days that I went, it was such a nice, refreshing way to start my day but then...I woke up early Wednesday morning feeling horrible. And today I have spent all day in bed with a sore throat, cough, and achy (is that a word?) body. My sister is also sick with the same thing so I'm hoping AB does not get it. I remember as a kid thinking I wish I was sick so I missed school and now I'm like how silly was that...because being sick is the pitts!

On a different note, I have a major Christmas show next weekend (3 days) in Boerne and with being sick I have no idea how I am going to get it all done. But I will not allow myself to stress over things I can not control. I am very excited about the show but feel very unprepared at the moment. I still have many many hours of sewing to do! Hence, the time is not on my side right now. The show is in the past has exceeded 5000 Christmas shoppers. WOW! I hope I have enough merchandise, as well I am praying God shows us His love in my bank account. It's been almost a month since I've subbed and I'll be lucky if I got called this close to the holidays. But again, it's not in my control - God has never not taken care of us and I know He is not going to stop now. We also have family coming in town this weekend but looks like I'll be skipping out on all the fun in hopes that no-one else catches what I have, especially the babies.
But while I'm under the weather - they are predicting snow here tomorrow! Snow makes me happy!! Probably because we see it once a year, if we're lucky. Last year it snowed in College Station - oh it was a beautiful sight!!

Hope you enjoy the Christmas music & new Christmas background...may your days be merry & bright!


  1. Oh Nancy I hope you get to feeling better soon. I love the new background & music. I keep waiting for snow up here too. Night before last we had massive thunderstorms & 60 degree weather. I wish you the best of luck & may God bless you on your sales & help fill your bank acct. Take care! :-)

  2. My dear daughter,
    I pray for your healing both in body and mind! I LOVE LOVE your blog! It brings me such bittersweet joy! Please enjoy the day and don't worry about your show this weekend, when it's gone it's gone. I wish I could be there to help you. But I will there in spirit! Love you much!
