Pre-Valentine's Day...

I would like to start by saying that I am not one of those people that thinks Valentine's Day is a really important holiday. I like getting presents for any reason or no reason at all, but the hubs and I don't wait for days like this to say how we feel.

In preparation for Valentine's Day though....

we had steak, the hubs choice...and it was a good choice...

and sauteed mushrooms...yummo!

We have planned a lunch date and a movie together for our actual Valentine's Day...but this is really only because we didn't do anything for our Anniversary a few weeks ago.

It is true love. True, True, amazing love! I hope you have it, and if you don't, I hope you find it someday!

I don't know whether I have too much to say or nothing to say! My mind is racing with so much. Between school, which is just busy, busy, busy. Work, really busy and crazy! And home, which is just home sweet home with one crazy two year old, one aloof 12 year old, and the hubs....they all keep me hopping. I have just spent three straight days home with Clark thanks to the RSV bug he had. Then my babysitter, the only non-family person that I have ever entrusted with my child tells me she is moving at the end of the school year.

A moment of silence please...

We will miss her and her wonderful family. And we will now have a good excuse to go the Lake and play this summer. So that is the way I will think of it, only the positive. But dang, I am sad.

I have learned through many friends that my prayers are just what they should be, which makes me feel good.

And I am looking forward to a Valentines Day with the hubs. My parents are taking my kiddos to a Disney show on stage so that the hubs and I can do something special. His first idea was to take me to the deer hunting lease to fill up the deer feeders. I promptly suggested that he do that the next day with his buddy! So now I am not sure what we will do. It would be nice to do something different that we have never done before, but that would probably require more time, money, and energy than we have. So a movie and a meal sounds real nice to me! I hope you all have a great Valentines Day!

And I would like to say a quick thank you to Survivor for not only coming back on the air...but also for bringing back Boston Rob! He is the best player ever in the history of the game...and I am addicted!

i ♥ faces Photo Challenge

This week's challenge is in preparation for Valentine's Day. It has to have a KISS in it. I wish I had a picture of KISS, that would be cool! I will tell you that they (KISS) were in my town a few weeks ago and they were at a school in the school system that I work for...I didn't get to meet them :( so sad!

Anyway, here is my Photo for the Challenge. Clark was getting mighty bored at his sisters birthday party, until he discovered this friendly dog (statue) on the front porch of Nana's house. Even now, almost two years later he still kisses that dog goodbye every time we leave her house.

Love it!

Where do I start? My Love Dare Journey is harder than I thought it would be. Why? You say. Well, a lot of the days involve praying for my husband. For his peace, for his soul, for his part in our marriage, for our marriage as a whole, for everything! I will admit right here and now that I am a believer. I pray here and there.

So here it is.

I have prayed for help with this and now I am asking for your help. Any tips on how you get used to setting a time during your day to vigilantly pray. Any books or videos that have helped you on your way. Any thing. Throw me a bone here people! I have been halted by this process. The process of making me stop in the middle, or the beginning or end, for that matter of my day and pray. I know it is important and I have the desire. So why am I finding it so hard to do?

So, can you help me?
