Hurricane Katrina: 3rd Anniversary

Three years ago today, Hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans and many more cities on the Gulf Coast. I was very family left the city before Katrina destroyed her. New Orleans is still not the same since Katrina hit. The French Quarter has recovered, but communities are still gone, unlivable. It breaks my heart to see my city still shattered. Now, three years to the day Hurricane Gustav is making his way to the Gulf Coast, headed towards New Orleans.

Friends, Please pray for the People on the Gulf Coast......Pray for their survival if Gustav hits....pray for their families.....their homes.....their lives!

Weekend of Absolutely Nothing...but Sleep.

My weekend really began Thursday night. I got home from work around 6pm. I walked the dogs. I sat on the sofa around 6:30pm & instantly fell asleep. I woke up at 8pm, ate a little dinner & fell back asleep. I woke up at 11pm, took the dogs outside & stumbled to bed. Friday night was a repeat of Thursday. Saturday morning, I finally woke up at 12:34pm. Saturday night, I went to Michelle & Don's house for dinner and good times. Sunday morning, I went to church, lunch with friends, feel asleep on the sofa, & went to dinner at Karla's. Sleep is Good!! :)

6 months

In 6 months from today, I will be 35. 35--WOW! I can not believe I will be 35. I cried when I turned 25....and was okay turning 30, but 35 is a little difficult for me. I keep thinking once I am 35 all hope is lost for marriage and children. Where does a Single Plus Sized Girl find a Potential Husband? Let me set back a second, where does one actually find a date? If you know a Christian Single man(who likes plus sized woman), please send him my way! :)

I have found more white hair on my head & noticed way more wrinkles on my face in the last several weeks. I believe I will start dying my hair in the next year or so. Getting older is not fun physically especially when body parts start looking differently! :)

Honestly, I would never want to go back to my 20's 30's are SO much better! My relationship with God, my family and friends are all so much better now.

Friends, How did you feel when you turned 35?

Weekend Wrap-up!

Friday night, I went to have drinks with my friend Melanie (Mel). We went to a local hang out in Frisco. We had a great time. Before we went "out", I took a 1.5 hour nap on the sofa. I was sooo ready to put on pj's and crawl into bed and it was only 8:30pm! Yep, it's official I am old! I wanted to go to bed at 8:30pm on a FRIDAY night! LAME!
Saturday morning/afternoon, I cleaned my entire apartment! It's so pretty cleaned. I just wish it would stay that way. My friends, Deb & Robert, came over for dinner. It was their first time seeing my new apartment. We had a good time just hanging around, watching Pretty Woman, and talking!
Sunday was filled with Sunday school class, church, lunch, friends, and Army Wives. Exciting?!

How was your weekend?
