Hey Lora and how are you doing? I am sorry I have been scarce lately. I've gotten sucked into "extreme" couponing and I am loving it, but even my boss (who's a friend from grad school) says I have a "couponing disorder," LOL! Hubby says if I must have a disorder, then this is a good one to have, LOL. But all my obsession with couponing (plus my current other obsession, reading the Twilight series) has kept me offline a bit more lately.

Hope the house sale is going well. I have some other friends also trying to sell right now and it is just not a fun time to be on the market. But you know when God is ready, he'll move you guys! That was very comforting to me when we were selling our house a few years ago. To remember that it's not by chance, and I don't have to worry about the timing because God is in control.

I'll be by in a bit to check out your recent posts. Have a great weekend!

I enjoyed reading your list and I am sending up a little prayer that your home sells really soon.

Happy Pink Saturday

I love these lists. I may do this over on my blog :)

I hope your house sells quickly. I know only too well how stressful that is. We are still waiting on getting tenants for our former house. Good luck!!

Wow, Mexico! Is it a mission trip or just a trip for fun? I hope that nasty flu is gone from there by then.

It sounds like you had a wonderful, relaxing day yesterday.

I almost put the 'go to be earlier, get up earlier' on my list, and yes, I see the connection. I am a horrible night owl and it's just getting worse. If I actually sit or lay down, I'm out like a light, but I just stay busy. Then I don't want to get up in the morning, and I'm one of those people that needs a lot of sleep, so I just compound the problem.

Enjoyed reading it...thanks for playing along. When are you headed back to Alabama?

Great to hear from you! You'll have to blog some about your *couponing*~I could use some good tips in that area!

The house stuff is moving slowly. We've had some great interest, but then nothing has worked out...and now things really feel slow.

You're right though, God knows the right timing! I wish I were more patient:)

The Mexico trip will be to a church conference in Chiapas. There is a large fellowship of churches that my dad works with there and this is their annual conference. But this year they are celebrating the 40th anniversary of my parents working in that area. I haven't been down there since I was about 4 and I am SO excited that the whole family is getting to go for this special occasion! We will have a couple of *just fun* days, too.

We'll be here in AR for the rest of the week and probably head back to AL next Monday.
