Thankful Thursday

This week I'm Thankful for the help that I've been receiving with Mackenna while I'm in school this
semester. I just want to give a little shout out.

Ian - Thanks for taking on the mom and dad role Monday-Thursday. Feeding, bathing and putting Mackenna
to sleep. It's a big help, and I know she loves being with daddy. 

Mom - Thanks for taking Mackenna @ your work for a half hour on Thursdays till Ian is off. 

Drae - My awesome brother, thanks for watching Mackenna on Tuesday night's and actually staying the night. It helps a lot. 

I really thought that I was going to be able to post regularly and still work full time and go
to school 4 days a week. I was wrong. I'm thankful for my readers this week for still 
stopping by even if my posts are ill regular. Thanks for sticking with me. 

54.. Mackenna's Daddy
55. Sleeping in a comfortable bed
56. Having tons of firewood for the winter
57. 35 degree morning's, snow is coming
58. Living in the mountains
59. Friends and New Friends
60. Great job
61. Still alive after 3 weeks of school
62. That Ian still loves me :)

Wordless Wednesday.. Sort of.

Traffic... blah. The commute to school that is a little over 30 minutes can be 
brutal at times and test ones patience. Then after they have finished the construction
I can deal with driving with other's that can't drive in the snow. 

Two season construction and winter where I live.

Happy Friday

With another week of school done, this weekend I can't wait to hang with my
girl Mackenna. Just me and her, and maybe daddy :) 

Stayed tunned tonight for my meal plan for next week. I'm going to 
start doing them on Friday's. It's just easier. 

Oh my, I downloaded the photos from the wedding I was in last week, and will maybe add them
to my meal plan post this evening. 

Make it a fun Friday!

I'm really pissed :)

So, I rarely read news online or even watch it. I refuse because everything is so negative, blown way out of proportion and it just makes me depressed. Although, once in a while I pull up, not my favorite source for the news, but I like how the top news story are just easy to access on the home page for easy quick viewing.

With 9/11 coming up, there is a lot flying through the headlines. One that particularly hit me was the fact that a man, sorry (minister), in Florida will be conducting a burning of Quran's on the anniversary date of September 11th. I'm not judgmental at first, but I was interested in what this guys ultimatum was to do this on a very highly sensitive day. 

I don't want to be too direct and touch on other's feelings on the thing, however I will say this, this is the most absurd thing I've heard of. This man is endangering our troops, that are still fighting for us over the attacks 9 years ago. He is also endangering the American people.

Anyway, I'm sorry for the rant and the post. I guess sometimes us mom's need to rant and rave about something and this is mine today :)

Wordless Wednesday

I love to play outside with Mackenna. I hope the snow stays away for a little longer than 
normal this year. She calls her car her "Beep, Beep"
