I got nuthin

Just stopping in to let you know I am still alive.
Although if the rain does not stop I might just be swimming for my life.
Or we might just end up with a house boat. :)
I have been trying to do some catch up on my Guardian Ad Litem case. We go to court toward the end of the month and I have lots of ground work to get completed before then so that I can draw up the papers for the judge.
It looks as if I may have to make a trip into Charlotte to see one of my (GAL) children. She has some physical issues and that is the only place they seemed to be able that had a home that could handle her issues.
Kind of sad for her parents who are now two hours from her.
I'll get to meet her parents tomorrow. Please pray for them- they are Christians who have found themselves in the middle of a mess that they can not control.
Imagine someone coming in and taking your children?
It is rough.

And I want ya'll to know that I have been working out....I have the sore muscles to prove it. :)
But it is good to be moving forward again.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my gift from God.
Elayne..my work out buddy...and I are getting to know each other and I am really starting to feel relaxed with her.
Although she might have something a little different to say about that. :) She finally realized what a tight reign I keep on all my muscles the other day when she tried to stretch me out. Her response, Girl!..you need to relax! My response? I'm not? :)
Hopefully this will help me let my muscles and
the very core of my being know that it is time to chill.
I do hear that I hide my tension very well. Elayne said she would have never known.
The gym has now blown my cover!
I do love working out with her.. she is great at varying our work out so that it does not get boring....something I have always hated in the past.
A healthier me is on the way!

I have had a couple of ideas for posts but don't seem to have the gumption to put them on "paper". Hope that will change soon.
Till then...know that I am here and you are on my mind and in my prayers.

You go girl. So proud of you! God is so good to give you a new friend too! I think it is awesome that you are a guardian ad litem. Thanks for your thoughts on The Shack. I liked it too and totally understood where you were coming from on that!

Michele Williams said...

I will be praying for the family. It sounds like they are going through a very difficult time and it's great that they have you and God on their side. ;-)

Keep up the good work, my friend. I am going to be working on my weight as soon as I get rid of this nasty bug I've had since the beginning of December. The last week I've been really sick.

Love and hugs,

Ice is good! Ice is our friend! I'm glad you're moving again too. Did you catch the quote on Dee's site? Keep moving so you'll keep moving. Perhaps not the exact words but words to live by I believe. I know what you mean about the rain. Here too!

Sounds like you have started the new year off right. I had good intentions, but haven't gotten started yet. Just like last year...I really need help. I'm praying that God help me.

Sharon said...

You sound alittle like me, I was having alittle hard time with that as well. It will come back, I will pray for you!
Please also know I am praying for the girl and her family. It's sad when they get separated so far a part.. I pray that all things will work out for good.
Be Blessed my friend

Love your new look. Well, swim on over to my neck of the woods and we can sit down and have a cup of coffee.

Sandi said...

Good to hear from you. Will pray for the couple. It is amazing how God has so many people pray about things we may never know or meet.

Denise said...

I love you my friend, keeping you in my prayers always.

Keep at it! You'll feel great in no time. So glad for your new friend to spur you along. Thanks for your prayers. I'm doing fine...kind of in a holding pattern right now, but much peace has been my portion.
