Time for A Change

Joe and I have been talking a lot about making some changes in our lives. First, we are attempting to pay down all our debt right now. I haven't purchased a new pair of shoes in like a year... and it's terrible. But, it's SO worth it. Second, I am going to get a second job. I have already signed the paperwork. I feel like I need something else in my life right now. I feel like I need to do something that I thoroughly enjoy, and that I just do for some extra cash in the bank. Joe still drives my two door Honda Civic from high school. Eventually he would like to buy a truck, and I would love for him to be able to do that soon! Third... I'm getting my hair done tomorrow. I've lost almost 15 pounds, and people are starting to notice, so I want to make some more changes :-). And, I'm making a drastic change. I'm not going to tell you what I have planned, but I will show you a before picture, and then show you an "after" picture tomorrow.

Please pray for Joe and I in making these changes in our lives. We are focused and determined to get ourselves on the right feet before we take the next step in our lives (And I'm sure you can figure out what that is :-))

Good News

If you read my last blog, you would know how stressed I've been over my sister in the past few days. Well, we received some good news today.

My sister does have a cyst on her brain, and it's not in a very good place. It's right in the heart of her brain, where the blood vessels come in and where activity happens. I'm sure you're wondering how this is good news. Well, the cyst isn't touching anything. It's just there and not bothering anything. The reason for her episodes is what the doctor believes to be migraines. He said there are people who lose their speech, eyesight, and more when experiencing one of these headaches. He believes that this is what she is experiencing.

The good news is that there doesn't seem to be a need for surgery, at least not at the moment. The bad news is that she can still suffer these at ANY time. The doctor gave her a list of things she shouldn't eat or drink and wants to follow up with her to watch the cyst and monitor her migraines.

Thank you for all the prayers :-)
