Measure G

So, I was able to help out with a local measure to get passed called Measure G.  It was a bond to get money for the schools and we won!  It was a lot of hard work, but it paid off!  I mostly helped out putting together the phone bank.  I volunteered poor Lisa for just about anything that came up...she was a good sport!  At any rate, we are all much happier with that being over with!

Lost and Found

So, I have this necklace that I've had since I was in Junior High.  My best friend, Johanna, gave it to me after one of her family trips.  I still wear it all the time and it means a lot to me.  A little while ago I realized that the charm was missing and I only had the chain on. I've had this necklace for more than half of my life, so I was really disappointed, but glad that I at least still had the chain.  I said a small prayer asking that I would find the charm, but didn't feel impressed to do anything or even look in the first place.  Who knows where on earth I could have lost it in how many different areas... I didn't even know how long I had been missing it for.  Well, a week or two goes by and I was vacuuming the game room. It was my second time around when I realized I was pushing something around on the floor that just wouldn't be sucked up, no matter what I was doing.  So I reached down and picked it was my charm!  I couldn't believe it!  I mean, look at how small it is!  Then when I was cleaning the bathroom, I looked down and saw the little circular thing that attaches it to the chain!  Are you kidding me?!  There is no denying that God answers prayers...even ones so trivial as finding a necklace charm.

Sharp Shooters

So, my dad has this pellet gun that he uses to scare away the squirrels from his walnut tree.  In September we had a little fun shooting at some cans in the back yard...check out these sharp shooters!

Ok, so I have MIA, but life just got a little less crazy, so I thought that I would blog a little bit.  

Jennifer texted me one Friday and told Lisa and I to come meet her and Chris down in Carmel for the day.  It is about an hour long drive for us and we jumped at the opportunity.  

It was a beautiful day and we walked down to the beach, did some shopping, but mostly we sat at a pub and  ate and chatted.  It was fun to just hang out, yay for being spontaneous!

Oh, and I bought a purse...Lisa and Jenn informed me that I needed this one, especially since it was such a great deal!  My favorite response was from Sherstin:
