Picking My Brain

Picking my brain and getting information about my personal feelings and thoughts can be very painful and as easy as turning a piece of coal into a diamond by squeezing it in my fist.

Life has been crazy and so many things have been floating around in my brain, and begun getting clogged up there....so much so that I haven't even been able to write much, which is usually my mental laxative.

so this entry may be long, it may be short and it may remind you of a terrible stomach ache after eating a seven day old hot dog from the convenient store...but none the less I am sitting here picking my brain, hoping to not make it bleed, like when picking a scab because I think most of my thoughts and brain activity have scabbed over the past little while.

----I totally didn't post and didn't mean to not post, but my little baby, my first born just turned 8!! G-Man is such a wonderful, sweet, caring, active, funny, social guy. He surely has blessed my life, keeps me on my toes and always willing to challenge my ability to parent. The poor kid has moved quite a bit in the last little while, and has fared fairly well and made some great friends. He had a wonderful Lego birthday party with eight of his eight year old friends. He even spent the weekend with his eight year old "twin" cousin (born a few days a part) and they had a blast building Lego projects one after the other.

AND the two of them will be baptized this Saturday...I can't believe my little G-Man is going to get baptized. He is so excited and ready for it. I wish all our family and friends could be there to share this special day with him.

----Maybe I haven't mentioned it but Eric and his best friend Greg are opening up a restaurant in Huntsville, UTAH...they found an awesome BBQ restaurant, with all the fixings that they pretty much can just open and run. They both have wanted to do this since forever and well things just keep falling into that direction. I AM SCARED and EXCITED all rolled up in one.

I think it is going to be a huge stress but will for sure be something that at least Eric really enjoys. And I am always up for party planning and stuff. But am not sure how it is going to work. We are on our last few dollars and well it SCARES me....I have no idea where we are going to live, and how we are going to live. I do know that the Lord seems to keep blessing us, and well I figure as long as we are doing what is right he will continue to bless us...and it just feels so right but yet I just can't see the whole picture....and worry if I am emotionally stable right now to handle the challenge a head of us....I have to be right?

----We need a car so bad....our car right now is wonderful and so glad that we have it, but every time I drive it and see a cop I pray he won't pull us over, besides the fact that it is still registered in Hawaii, I don't think we have our kids legally buckled....they all have a seat belt but one has to sit squeezed in the front and well anyway, its cramped and I know it can't be the safest thing for a family of six. But what can I do, we don't have any money to buy one...Anyone have a cheap reliable family van of sorts?

---I am tired....I am happy...I have hope....and I know things will work out. I just am not sure how well I will fair on the ride right now...

Anyone know of anyone renting in the Ogden area??? We need to find a place to live soon....Argh...sorry about this post you probably are glad I haven't written for awhile.....


Oh ok one last thing today while we were driving in the car, Two after coughing said "Coughing and farting is funny." followed by a cough and toot at the same time.

"Did you toot and cough at the same time?"

"yeah it is funny." followed by her trying to force the combination again.

It just made me laugh...I laughed really hard, I think I am tired, or maybe it was the way she said it...but anyway.......

It's good to hear from you again. I think anyone in your shoes would be scared too. It's a big leap of faith to take.
I wish I had something really wise to say but all I can think of is just to keep leaning on the Lord and he'll get you through whatever and wherever the ride takes you.

Huntsville! I love that area! And BBQ---we are for sure coming over this summer to eat! Love it! I hope all works out great for you and your family! Hang in there!

The Thorley Family said...

Wow! I think you are amazing to have such a positive outlook with all the changes going on in your life right now. I'm excited for your foray into the restaurant business - I think you'll do great!

Yvonne said...

You know when I read your friend's post about her husband opening a barbeque place with a friend--I wondered if you guys were the friends ; ) I would be scared to, but when you know you're doing what you're supposed to do some how it all works out.

Hang in there.

Yvonne said...

And, congratulations to your little G-Man on his baptism. Enjoy the day.

Nancy Face said...

How exciting that your son is being baptized! His birthday party sounds wonderful...Legos are the coolest! :)

I hope all goes well with the new business and that you'll find a suitable place to live! :)

(((HUGS)))

Sunnie said...

I can't wait to come up for so BBQ. Be sure to tell us where it is.

katharine said...

i'm with you there. it sure is scary.

Teri said...

South Weber is a great place...and not too far from Huntsville. But I have also lived in Roy and it was great too. Both towns have recreation centers for the family to enjoy and of course GREAT communities. Just a thought. (Btw, Cheryl asked that I give you my opinion :))

Jeff and Anna too! said...

I had a friend in Ogden for a while-but I don't know of anyone renting! Not any help there.

Good luck with the food thing-you can make a good living doing that.

Hope you find a car for the whole family-try Craigslist

April said...

Good luck with the new restaurant.....just so you know, every time i pull up your blog i say a little prayer for your family.....I know it's has been tough times.....and I will pray for success in the new business!

Please pray for my friend Emily!

Sheri said...

Hey friend... it's all going to be all right! I just keep chanting my self "Faith not fear"! We have a van you can buy... oh wait you said reliable, and no money!! So far it' reliable, but I definatley need a bigger car!!:)I just keep scanning KSL and craigs list for houses, knowing that something will pop up!
Congrats to Gregory!! If the games are cancelled due to rain, we will be there, but unfortuantely I am the coach and can't miss again.

Sheri said...

I meant chanting to myself....

Hi. I'm just here visiting your site, and I have to say, I like it a lot. You have some great stuff to check out. I have a small blog that has been around for about 2 years. It's not big, I delete posts every now and then. But I invite you to come check out my site. I would love to have you over. :D

Maren said...

Good luck, dear. I hope the restaurant is a huge success. When I told my parents you were going to be opening a restaurant in Huntsville - they said it is a beautiful area - even said they wished they could live there. I pray you can find a fantastic place and scrape together the funds for a car. I am praying our car doesn't break down - it's got a lot of miles, but there's no cash for a new one. You have so much going on right now. I really hope things settle down and work out well. Come see us in CA if you can! Love Ya and Praying for you -Maren
