Those were listed in no particular order... we all know Chuck is much higher on that list:)
I am sure many would say, ya that's just life... busy busy busy. Well I decided I didn't want to live my life without being able to stop and smell the roses when I wanted... Or paint my toenails when they get all chipped, or go on dates, or get to read my new book on hypno-birthing, or be able to go to the doctor without worrying about sitting in the waiting room for too long, or bake stuff... like bread, and muffins, and cookies, and wow I feel really hungry right now, or WRITE IN MY JOURNAL (something that has really fallen behind these days).... Or blog:), or or or take a long shower or curl my hair!!!
So, I am thinking about quitting my job. Just like that. Somethings are just more important. I mean who needs money anyways... I mean I am a pregnant, newly-wed college student, I think by definition I should be broke. I would hate to go against social norms here.
Plus my neighbor who is in very much the same boat as me but with 3 kids and one on the way gave me some really great advice... "Pray for free stuff."
I don't know quite what I am going to say to the boss man... I'll have to pray for words for that conversation while I am praying for prosperity to knock on my door. I shouldn't have any doubts though, God always seems to come through for me... which reminds me I should tell him thanks for a bunch of stuff today.

I was able to wrap up my summer in my favorite way, and that is by eating a lot of deep fried food at the Minnesota State Fair. It was Chuck's first time ever going so it was fun to watch him experience it for the first time... it's kind of a big deal. We were able to go with our new friends from church... Diana and Matt (they bought us tickets... that sure was sweet of them!!!)
On the State Fair Menu this year...
Deep Fried Australian Battered Potatoes smothered in a delectable nacho cheese sauce and ranch dressing. You could barely taste the potato... it was like a hot batter patty, which you can't even see because there is so much sauce on it. (This is a nutritionists nightmare!!!!)
We also took part in some of the other fair festivities... who can resist sticking their heads in these things. Chuck looks pretty devious with that chain saw.
I made a goal this semester to only blog once a week... I got to focus on my studies ya know. Hopefully this semester will prove to be eventful and full of wonderful new things to learn. Talk to you next week.
