Coming to an end

I forget the number of times that I heard this year that the world is coming to an end.  There were just so darn many that I couldn't keep up with them all.  And besides being able to keep up with them all, I didn't believe a single one of them.  There is one thing for sure though, the end is coming.  The end of the world is coming and Matthew 24:36 says..."No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."  Now that is where I put my belief and my trust.
With that said...
This year is coming to an end!  I don't know how you feel about this year coming to an end but I happen to be elated.  This has been one of the worst if not the worst year of my life.  I'm not kidding.  So much has happened in such a very short time.  Anyway...4 more days and it's coming to an end!

Tis the Season

As we all approach the end of the year, we realize that Christmas is upon us. I am in the middle of painting and replacing carpet with tile. Why oh why am I doing this in the middle of "Tis the Season"?! For me it's always "Tis the Season". So hopefully I will be updating more often and you can see what I'm up to. Or, you could always check my facebook page too.

Moving a Lot

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy

I’ve always been moving here and there and it’s really hard for me to put down roots but now that I’m here in Texas I sure hope I get to stay. I’m a consultant so my job is what’s got me constantly moving around the country and when I’m not actually moving my home I’m staying in hotels all the time. It’s really hard for me to maintain any functional relationships like this and also I’d like to get a dog, too, but I guess that’s not happening anytime soon. My new house is SO cute and it just breaks my heart every time I have to pack a bag and leave it for a week at a time. When I am home I’ve been trying to work on the d├ęcor inside and make sure I’m saving as much money as I can with things like Reliant Energy info for Rusk Texas since I’m not home a lot to use the AC. I’ve met one of my neighbors and they seem really, really nice – they’ve even offered to get my plants for me while I’m gone so they won’t die! I don’t know, this consulting thing is nice because I make a lot of money but at the same time it’s like how long can I keep on living this way without going crazy? I can’t exactly live like a nomad for the rest of my life so I think it’s time for me to figure out what I want to do this time next year and work towards that goal. Who would have thought I’d end up at this crossroads at such a young age, or with so much money in the bank? I think it’s time I manned up and decided what is most important to me in life since I’ve got the money and that doesn’t seem to be making me happy, you know?
