Slacking and a request for prayers

I can't believe it has been a whole week since my last post! Seriously, guys, time is flying around here! I am trying to adjust to my new job and I have to admit it hasn't been easy.

Now, that's not to say that I don't like it, because I really do but there is so much to learn and I haven't worked in over four years. Needless to say, my body and mind are having to adjust. My house cleaning has certainly taken a back seat. It has never been this messy!! However, I am doing a good job of being more present and in the moment with my kids while I am at home. So, housework can wait, as far as I am concerned. :) I only work part time, so I don't know how you moms do it that work full time outside of the home as well. I give you props!

Added on to all the day to day stresses is the fact that I am leaving for Vegas in less than a week...get home late Thursday night have wedding stuff to do Friday and then the actual wedding Saturday and Kendra's party on Sunday. Phew.... I am tired already. On a good note, we decided to do a sweets shop theme for Kendra's party and I found some really great stuff today at the dollar store! Can not wait!

On a more somber note..... more prayers and/or positive thoughts are needed for my friend I spoke of in my last post. Things have taken a turn for the worse; her health is failing rapidly and her cancer is spreading.  The doctors believe that recovery is not an option at this point. :(  I am still holding out hope for a miracle but the outlook does not look good. I just ask that you keep them in your thoughts.


  1. Oh Ashley that is so sad .I Will sure be praying for her and the entire family! Miracles still happen!

    On another note, that sounds like a pretty good plan for Kendra's party! Can't wait!!! (Assuming our little man doesn't decide to come first!!!Hopefully he'll wait!!)

  2. I am so sorry to hear that. Definitely praying.

    I am sure it is a big adjustment for you!! Praying for you as you go through this. :) Can't wait to hear about your trip!

  3. your friends life certainly forces us all to put life in perspective and think about what really matters.

  4. That is awful news Ashley, I am so sorry to read that and cannot begin to imagine what she is going through...:(
    My thoughts are with her.
    As for you, good for you for making the kids a priority when you are home, housework can wait! Glad you are settling in well :)
    Have fun in Vegas!!!!

  5. i am so incredibly sorry to hear about your friend. so heartbreaking and tragic. many prayers continue to be sent her way. and big hugs to you. <3
