Too much to do too little time!

Do you ever feel you have to much to do and have very little time to do it in? That is how i feel today.I have 101 things to do but can't get motivated to do one except blog. LOL! I started another blog to Keep friends & family updated w/the pregnancy. Now i need to get Chloie's started and keep it updated.

I love that the holidays are right around the corner. I love the Christmas Holiday! But i need to go Christmas shopping. I am drawing a blank on what to get Miss Chloie. Anyone have any ideas?

It's thursday so that means it's Greys Day!

I'm back!

Well it's been way too long since I've been on here. Much has happened. First off the reason for the absence is due to Hurricane Ike and my computer getting a yucky virus just before the hurricane and the computer shop was way behind getting to everything. But now i have the computer back and I'm trying to get caught up on everything!

Now for some exciting news. I'm pregnant with #2. I'm 11wks and 3 days i believe so four more days and I'll be out of the first trimester. I'm still nervous and can't wait to get back to the Dr in a few weeks to see the baby and hopefully hear the heart beat. I think once i get this Dr appt over with and i get the everything is looking good from the Dr i will fill much better and alot more relaxed. I'm just cautious and nervous from the miscarriage earlier this year. So please keep baby and me in your prayers!

Here is a pic of the ultrasound.

Grey's Anatomy Season 5

OK if i haven't told you before i am a Grey's Anatomy Fan. Many friends and family members might say I'm obsessed. So you might say I'm just a tad over excited about the new season starting in 3wks! Last season during the season finale many fans waited for the Merdith Derrick Reunion.

It left us wondering if Derrick was going to end up in an accident while on his way to break up with Rose.

Will Erica and Callie be "an item" next season?

Lexie and George a couple?

Izzie and Alex, the Chief and wife, Bailey & her husband are back together now are they staying together?

So now Season 5 is starting in 3wks and we have gotten some promos but it's old scenes. A new Promo was release i believe Monday. But i just caught it today. Boy did i about fall out of my chair!

Here is the episode if you haven't seen it!

So there has been many discussions because Grey's Writers promised that Derrick wouldn't be in an accident and Rose wouldn't announce she is pregnant. So does that mean this is all a dream. I hear that the Season 5 first Episode is titled Dream a Little Dream of Me. Hopefully that is a great explanation for the new promo.

Stay tuned i will be blogging about Grey's when i get a chance and would love to hear form other Grey's Fans!

Edited to add For pics of the Season Premiere check out: Episode 5.01 - Dream a Little Dream of Me - Promotional Photos

Off to the beach

We are off to the beach for the weekend! My grandparents live in High Island, TX. We are going to stay there and go to the beach to make sand castles, search for shells and maybe do some fishing. Then we are going to visit the Crystal Beach area and go to the water slide! Sunday we are hoping weather permitting to ride the ferry over to Galveston and do some more shell searching on the beach and walk around the Strand.

I'm bringing a few magazines i picked up for some ideas i have been brainstorming about. I'll post about it when i get back. Just a hint it has to do w/a giveaway i'm doing pretty soon! So check back Monday!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

See a Penny Pick it Up....

Received this in a bulletin on MySpace and thought is was too good not to share!

Wow, something to think about....... You always hear the usual stories of pennies on the sidewalk being good luck, gifts from angels, etc. This is the first time I've ever heard this twist on the story. Gives you something to think about.

Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband's employer's home. My friend, Arlene, was nervous about the weekend. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway, and cars costing more than their house. The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy live.

The husband's employer was quite generous as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene knew she would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again, so was enjoying herself immensely. As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant that evening, the boss was walking slightly ahead of Arlene and her husband. He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long, silent moment. Arlene wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There was nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny that someone had dropped and a few cigarette butts Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the penny.

He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he had found a great treasure. How absurd! What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take the time to stop and pick it up? Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at her. Finally, she could stand it no longer. She casually mentioned that her daughter once had a coin collection, and asked if the penny he had found had been of some value.

A smile crept across the man's face as he reached into his pocket for the penny and held it out for her to see. She had seen many pennies before! What was the point of this? 'Look at it.' He said. 'Read what it says.' She read the words ' United States of America ' 'No, not that; read further.' 'One cent?' 'No, keep reading.' 'In God we Trust?' 'Yes!' 'And?' 'And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy, even on a coin.

Whenever I find a coin I see that inscription. It is written on every single United States coin, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message right in front of me telling me to trust Him? Who am I to pass it by? When I see a coin, I pray, I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that moment. I pick the coin up as a response to God; that I do trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were gold. I think it is God's way of starting a conversation with me.

Lucky for me, God is patient and pennies are plentiful!

When I was out shopping today, I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized that I had been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I cannot change. I read the words, 'In God We Trust,' and had to laugh. Yes, God, I get the message.

It seems that I have been finding an inordinate number of pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are plentiful! And, God is patient..

Thought for the Day: If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it. He sends you flowers every spring. He sends y you a sunrise every morning Face it, friend - He is crazy about you! Send this to every 'beautiful person' you wish to bless. God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. Read this line very slowly and let it sink in... If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. Pass this message to other people.
