It's Friday...

Love the end of a workweek, how about you? There's something satisfying about accomplishing a week's worth of tasks, and then getting to forget about them over the weekend. :)

I don't know about you mama's out there, but this time of year is so busy, and calendar management is so important.  But sometimes, we are so busy, we just need to put our foot down and say "no" to a lot of good things so that we have time to be together and invest in our family (the "great" thing).  What are your thoughts?  How do you decide what to say "yes" to and what to say "no" to?

Hope you have a happy Friday and don't forget to enter the giveaway over at The Evolution of Mom.

Dusting Off the Ol' Blog

Well, it has been absolutely forever since I last blogged.  Two and a half years.  A lot has happened in that time!  J is now as tall as I am and has braces.  Tim's been to the west coast and back for an amazing mission trip...and me, well, not much has changed in my world...

However, I've had a couple requests from folks (you know who you are!) to start posting, but the final encouragement is a giveaway I've entered with The Evolution of Mom blog (seriously, check it out!). They are doing a black Friday giveaway for an iPad, and BOY, could I use one.

I had some $ saved up from a side job to buy one, and then poof, my hubby's car needs a new engine. Bye, bye $.  So, I am going to cross my fingers and hope I win.  So I am dusting off the ol' blog so I can get another entry.  :)
