Some Interesting Facts.......


Some interesting facts..................................

And what does a LARGE family use over the course of 14 years, since we have been out here in the country..........we are working on getting our 6th dishwasher( tomorrow night, Lord willing, another new, cheap, throw away, they last us about two years, we run it 4 times a day) we have had two kitchen sinks, three kitchen faucets, we have had 4-5 standing freezers, we have three refrig. now but we have had a least 2 others that broke, we are working on our 3rd washer and I think our 4th dryer, this is our 3rd 15 passenger van, our 3rd truck, we are working on our 2nd toilet in one of the bathrooms, we have replaced both sinks/vanities in both bathrooms, we are working on our 4th couch, and comfy chairs....I have lost count, we have torn out carpet twice in two bedrooms, I could not even tell you how many coffee pots we gone through, Bethany and Anna's room has had three paint re-do's, both of our hallways are on their 2nd round of re-doing paint, we are on our 2nd printer and computer, we are on our 2nd large mixer, oh.....and door knobs.....who can count???? This is really great.....it means we are blessed, it means we have a lot of people in our home and I LOVE IT!!!!!! Just thought you might get a *grin* out of all that info........

Thank you Stephanie for giving a comment on the last post....maybe I was to presumptuous about Joel's story and should not have expected others to share. If any are changed through the means of Joel's life it is a blessing but even if none are not, God is still just and good in all He does even if we do not see or hear of the fruits now. I have been changed........

Terry and I made a dash to Lowes tonight to get that 3rd faucet. It was fun to "go out" together!! We also had to stop and get some ice-cream as it was requested by the group at home....to celebrate......I guess getting a new faucet???? We find lots of reasons to celebrate!!!

Anna and I raided a few thrift stores today. We actually found quite a few things. I found a casual black straight skirt for me, its a St. John's Bay, I think that is a JC Penny brand, I was soooo excited because it was a size 10 and I have not seen that number in a loooong time. Maybe I should not say that....oh well, I was grateful that the walking and trying to watch what I eat is helping!! I also found Hosie a great denim skirt to play in!!

Tomorrow is grocery day, its usually an all day deal. Bethany and Anna have been so faithful to cook meals each week, I am really enjoying their extra work and preparing all the wonderful food!!!!

Not much else for now, this was kind of generic wasn't it???? Goodnight!!!!

Now I don't feel so bad for all the things I have replaced over the years. Atleast we aren't the only ones! I have just decided that kids are rough on everything and eventually when they are all grown up and gone then I will get new nice furniture and applicances, probably just in time for my grandchildren to tear them up!
