Romo digging in the flower bed - NAUGHTY NAUGHTY!! But the story is much longer than that.
Romo and Lady (my in-laws dog) have fleas. They have been suffering for two weeks now as we waited to see if Frontline was ever going to work. I did some research yesterday, and Frontline is supposed to kill everything off in 12 hours... Needless to say, it didn't work. We've been checking them multiple times a day and picking the fleas off.Yesterday we spoke with our vet (after being put on hold several times for long periods) who said there was nothing that she could do - it's flea season. She recommended that we get a pill called Capstar (from Petmart) which kills all the fleas within 2 hours. When we got to Petmart, the vet there said that we should give them the pill, treat the carpet, wash the dogs with Dawn dish soap, give the pill one more time, then apply the preventive flea medication. So we started the process.
We washed the dogs with Dawn this morning and let them play outside while they dried off and the carpet is being treated (which takes at least an hour). OF COURSE my little puppy got into the flower bed after 2 minutes. He dug himself into a mess. So I yelled, and spanked, and yelled, and rewashed that darn pup til the dirt was gone. He still had to stay outside though until the carpet was ready. Hence, the cage outside and him acting helpless and hurt. He's just lucky that we washed him in the morning and not in the high noon Texas heat!
On a lighter note, (not lite, however) I made a fruit pizza last night for dessert. This is just an iPhone photo, but I bet if P came with her sweet camera and photoed this baby, you'd be able to taste it by just looking! Even PJ liked it (and he doesn't like sweets at all). Thuy and I might open a fruit pizza/frozen yogurt shop someday.
Anyways, this post is a novel already. I'm done now.

"Who has eternal life in heaven?"
"Those who believe in Jesus. John 14:6 says, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through me'."
After the interview, one of the elders approached him and said, "I want you to read Romans 11:25-32"
PJ came home and opened up his Bible. I'm not going to type out the whole passage here in the blog - but you should go read it! The subtitle of the passage is 'All Israel Will Be Saved'.
I have been told my whole life that the only way to eternal life with God is through belief in Christ. Therefore, anyone who does not believe he is Lord and Savior (Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, etc.) will have eternal condemnation. I have been told that Jews will not be in heaven. Straight up, just like that. By EVERYONE who has taught me the word.
The only problem is that Romans clearly states that the Jews will be in heaven because God made a promise to them as his chosen people.
He had mercy on us (Gentiles) in our disobedience and will have mercy on the Jews for their disobedience (crusifying the Christ).
It's a crazy thing to grasp (old dogs can't learn new tricks, afterall) and I had TONS of questions about it that PJ had some good thoughts on. Right now I can't remember any of those questions, but I would really like to write about my doubts and PJ responses to them.
You should ask some questions so that I can think more about it.

I've had several things that I've needed to blog about, but haven't had the resources necessary to do so until now! (My Internet is canceled at the apartment, my personal computer is in Texas with the hubby, and I haven't been at work for a 1.5 weeks!) So here we go!
Washington, D.C. with Streets was a BLAST! The trip went really smoothly - no one became a missing person! (Please excuse the iPhone photos... I don't have a chord for my camera [not that my camera is any better quality]) Here is a photo of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial with the Washington Monument in the background. I really enjoyed D.C. and would love to go back with PJ - who is a history buff - someday!
We were in D.C. until May 12 at 9:00 AM. By noon that same day, I was on the road to McKinney to see PJ and go to a job fair (which turned out to be completely pointless). Romo tinkled a wee little bit when he saw me, which made me incredibly happy! He's having so much fun there. He has a dog friend (who doesn't particularly like him, in my opinion) and a good yard to run around in! It's so much fun to have a little family! There are a couple young girls that come over to PJ's parents house to play with the dogs. They painted my nails and put flowers in PJ's hair... isn't he cute?! (And looks so happy...)
"Car accident busted knee on mu may to er"
"What. Oh no. I'm babysitting or I'd be there!!!
"Call someone yo come I don't want to be alone"
"Okkkk... tried calling Ashley, let me keep trying people"
"Ok! What baptist east er?"
"On my way"
As you can see, I didn't change any of her mis-spelled words in order to capture the importance and urgency of her texts. I dropped the kids off at their grandparents - who happen to live next door - and was off to the ER! I had a photo of her at the hospital in a wheelchair, but Blogger made it disappear and I'm not happy about it. It also won't let me upload any photos again. Should I change to a new blog type? I think so. Anywho, she broke her patella pretty bad. They thought it was broken into 3 pieces, but when the surgeon began his work, he found that it was actually nearly shattered. She can't put any pressure on it for 6 weeks and they aren't confident the procedure is even going to work. If this is the case, she will have it all removed and replaced with a fake knee cap. Sounds fun, huh? Her mother, sister, and nephew came to take care of her for a few days. Can I just say that her nephew is the most amazing baby I've ever met? He's gorgeous and happy and smiley and perfect! Look at him sleeping on his "Tee Tee Me Me"!
I think that every family should have bi-racial babies. I think that every race should marry and create babies with every other race often, because he is BEAUTIFUL and there should be lots more like him crawling around! Jambow is a really good aunt and B B's mommy is a really great mom; oh heck, and Grammy is a wonderful Grandma! Life is good.
I move to Texas in 5 days. It's such a bitter-sweet thing, as are most changes in life. I thought moving to Memphis was going to be bitter-sweet, but it turned out to be mostly just sweet! I eagerly expect and hope that the move to TX will be the same. There are a lot of people here that I'm going to miss horribly, though. Including, but not limited to, Jambow. Memphis is only a 7 hour drive from McKinney, so I know that I will be back often! I'm thinking about running the St. Jude 1/2 marathon again... a GREAT excuse to make my way back over here :D
Until next time (which will hopefully be soon),

Hopefully I have some more exciting pictures once we actually get there!!
Monday, May 3, 2010
I just sat down to read the Word a bit and came across something interesting that I figured I should write about. Also, yesterday's service was amazing. The one-and-only KV spoke on Matthew 7:12-23...yikes - it's a TOUGH one! Actually, all of Matthew 5-7 is especially tough (The Sermon on the Mount). It should make one realize how sinful he is and how great there is a need for a savior. I'm hoping to put a blog up about that passage (from what was taught by KV in church and DownLine) later this week.
But for now, 1Corinthians 5:9-11.

She is riding her new Honda Rebel. It's a little bike, but perfect for her... and she looks great on it! She used to ride a bike when she was a teenager (I'm not sure how she talked Grandpa into buying her one at 16). She said she was a rebel (how fitting...) when she was growing up and that's why she liked motorcycles and country music. Who knew country music was considered rebellious back in the day? She even got tatted up when she was 20 - a little strawberry on her belly. 20 years later she was still hiding it from my grandparents! Now she has 8 and is trying to figure out what to get next... oh mother.
I drove (yes drove, not rode, drove) my first bike while I was in Michigan for the funeral. The following photo is when PJ was driving and I was riding, but later that day I drove it myself with him on my back!
Lastly, Romo meets his doom:
Back to a wonderful day at VMS!
First of all, I received this photo on my phone via text message from HB. It's the sweetest thing!
The lil pup is, of course, darling little Romo. The BIG dog is Wilson - Romo's new pal! Wilson belongs to HB and JB. They graciously took Romo in for 4 days while PJ and I were in MI for my Grandpa's funeral. Oh, they are so cute!
Michigan was fine. Grandpa's funeral went well and the family is doing alright. He's been sick for quite some time, so we all knew it was coming. Grandma isn't doing so hot, but who could blame her? He was 84 and she, 77. That means they were married for a good long time.
The move to Dallas is quickly approaching, I've started packing up some stuff, but there is a lack of boxes... so it's on pause until I can find more! PJ had an interview last week Monday for Director of Youth Ministries position at a baptist church in Plano. We are supposed to find out by today if he got it. We both only want God's will... but is it bad to want God's will to be this job? Probably. I still have no news about teaching, but I will be going to a job fair for Frisco ISD on May 15. I've decided that if I do not get a full-time teaching job, I will substitute teach with the intentions of putting my face out there for school systems to see! Then, maybe the following year I will have something!
It's starting to hit me pretty hard that I'm leaving all my friends. PJ has a plethora of wonderful guy friends in the Dallas area, however I have exactly 3 acquaintances... and no job. It's going to be interesting to see what God is going to do about that. Today in growth group Nancy asked us what we were bugging God about. What are something things that we need him to do in our lives? I need friends and a job. But I haven't been pestering the provider of all for these things, so I am going to start today!
Also, we are selling a couch, loveseat, and an airconditioner that you should be interested in! Call me!

Second to that:
Strawberries growing off Walnut Grove across from Shebly Farms are ready to be picked!! Who wants to go with me? Think of the things we could make:
Strawberry & Rhubarb Pie
Strawberry Jam (hmmm... Do I have any left in the freezer?!)
Strawberry Ice Cream
Fruit Pizza with Strawberries
Or.. we could just eat plain 'ol strawberries just as they are.
If only I could be MI in July/August for blueberry pickin' - Just think:
Oh wonderful summer fruits!

Maybe I'm just unintelligent.
Anyways, I have some things going on in my mind that I feel like I need to have down on "paper" a.k.a blogspot.
I am an introvert?
I am a self-proclaimed introvert and tested as 100% introverted. I don't enjoy being around more than 5 people at a time. Going to social events makes me nervous and stresses me out, especially if a majority of the people there are people that I have never met (or even worse, have met once or twice and so I feel like I should engage in conversation with him/her but have nothing to say). I like to be in bed by 10:00 so I always turn invitations to go out with friends down when it's "late" because I'd rather chill on the couch or sleep. Introvert.
However, PJ just left to go to work and so it's just Romo and me. Don't get me wrong, Romo is quite enough to keep me occupied, but I feel lonely. I wonder who is working and as it turns out, all of the whopping 3 people I would call in this moment are indeed at work. But I would really love some company. Maybe just one person. We could go for a walk at the park. That would be ideal. But alas, here I am blogging and the only excitement ahead is stopping by Walmart after buying groceries for some windshield wiper fluid. What a night!
"If someone asked you what the greatest good on this earth is, what would you say?"
I've been reading a book by Francis Chan entitled Crazy Love. The above quote is in chapter 3, which I just finished reading. I would say God is the greatest good because I know that is the right answer. But I question whether or not I actually believe this because my life doesn't show it. I know that I believe it - but wouldn't my life look radically different from the world if that were true? I'm not so radical. So... do I really believe it? Or do I just know it? My prayer is that I would know and believe that God is the greatest good on this earth because I have personally experienced his loving goodness. That's scary to write, think, and definitely to pray. God brings us closer to him through suffering. (Not to say that God always gives suffering in order to draw us closer, but through our suffering which he allows to happen, we often find ourselves in intimacy with our maker for lack of anything else that compares.) So, that's a hard prayer to pray because no one wants suffering, but that very well could be the answer to my prayer. Whatever it takes to understand God's greatness is what I should want, but my flesh is very afraid.

Romo loves green things. Actually, he loves to eat everything that he isn't supposed to eat whether it be green or brown (he likes bark and twigs too... no, he doesn't eat his own poo... I don't think.) Here he is checking out a leafy bush:
Just darn cute:
Big doggies love Romo. And Romo loves big doggies! He tries to play with the "big dogs" but they are faster, larger, scarier, have bigger teeth and louder barks, and they can swim. (Romo is still a little wary about water.)
Ok - ENOUGH ABOUT ROMO!
Pudding Fruit Salad = the bomb fruit/dessert combo. It's my momma's recipe and it's divine. I have no picture, but I have some in my lunch... yummmmmy.
2 cans maderine oranges
1 big can (? oz... sorry, my bad) pinapple tidbits
lots of red and green grapes, sliced in half
1 3oz package NONINSTANT vanilla pudding
Combine 1.5 cups of the fruit juices with the pudding and warm in a sauce pan until thick. Let cool. Combine pudding mixture with fruit and chill in the fridge. That's it! Oh... then eat and eat and eat. Great way to get kids to eat fruit for dessert!
Although I'm not a big fan (actually, I'm not a fan at all) of canned fruits, it's pretty tasty. I bet a sugar-free pudding would make it...well, less sugary. But I normally don't do sugar free/low fat stuff - it's just not my style. (yeah, yeah...my body will hate me when I'm old and grey. Moderation is key.) Actually, 3 x theta is key... only Joey would get that one ;)

Here is Aunt Rach (and of course, Romo)
The Cook - Bear
Schramm (and Romo sitting under her shade)
Can you tell that I love my puppie? I have to show you one more photo. On Wednesday, a group of us met up at Central BBQ for lunch, it will be one of the last times we are all together like that, so I had to capture the moment:
How fun. In this photo (and if you include me) three of us are moving to Dallas, one to MI, three staying in Memphis and one will be working with YWAM somewhere not in Memphis. Life is crazy.

I am reading a book entitled The Praying Life by Paul Miller. Today I read a chapter that talked about how prayer is personal and that it is okay to pray for "trivial" things such as a parking spot. He also said that it is okay to pray that it is not your house being burned down when you hear a firetruck siren. (Although some say that is selfish and means that you will for someone else's house to be burned down.) I'm all good with that. I pray for the minute details frequently without thinking I'm selfish. It is okay to tell God your feelings and desires (i.e. I don't want my house to burn down, Lord). After all, did Jesus himself not ask the cup to be taken from him before being sent to the cross?
Miller then talks about those who think, "it would have happened anyways." That is me. That is my struggle. Because I believe that God is sovereign and has a will and a plan and a foreknowledge of everything, does prayer really make a difference? I find myself thinking, "who am I that God would change his will after hearing my prayer?"
I have heard it said after bringing this up to a friend that the most important thing about prayer is that your are conversing with God and spending time with him. I do believe that prayer is time to be intimate with the Creator, but "that man should think he will not receive anything from the Lord, he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does" (James) I have to believe that God wants to answer our prayers - in fact he delights in it. But I don't understand how this and his sovereignty make sense!

On Friday night, Romo and I went to Hollywood Feed to get some bells. The bells are used to help potty train. We hung them by the door that he uses to go potty (or that he is supposed to use). When he starts sniffing around or if he runs to the door, we say, "Outside? Ring the bells!" Then we put his paw on the bells so they make noise. He started jumping to the bells himself, too! He hasn't peed in the house all weekend, which is a HUGE success because he used to pee on the carpet 5-10 times a day.
I decided I wanted to get it on video so that the world can see how smart and well-trained he is... this is what I got:
P.S. Don't you just love that burgandy/navy/hunter green plaid couch matched with the baby blue and light yellow blanket Grandma Daniels made me years ago?! What a lovely living room we have... ;)

I was just thinking about the economy and moving to Texas and jobs and all kinds of crazy stuff that life is about to bring. My personal belief is that the economy will not get better, only worse. Maybe that is the cynical me coming out, but nevertheless, I believe it. Then I start getting all worried about life and money and kids and being homeless and it's a slippery slope to the day I'm just going to die of starvation or freeze to death.
Then I remember that I have a Great Savior. I think back to Philippians 1:20 (I think...). Paul says, "for me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me, yetwhat shall I choose? I do not know. I am torn between the two. I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far..." And that's just the dang truth. Departing and being with Christ is the best thing that could ever happen to me. So why do I worry? What is the worst that can happen? I die? Paul says that's actually the best! So... It's all good, really. But I still need to bring my anxiety to Jesus.

(The other video was supposed to go here, but it won't upload. Just imagine a puppy playing outside with a stick in the grass... cute.)
Here is a funny story:
This morning I decided that it was a swell idea to wake up at 6:00 (instead of 6:45 with 8 snoozes which really means 7:30) so that I had plenty of time to feed Romo and take him for a little walk so he could go potty. That plan worked out well... While Romo was eating, I made PJ's lunch. Then I showered and Romo waited. Then I made breakfast for the Peej (it's going to be a long day at school and he needs some brain food.) Then... we walked.
Try to get a mental picture of this: Leash in left hand... and an umbrella. Coffee (without a lid) in right hand. Romo dragging me. Umbrella hitting me in the head the whole way. Coffee Spilling. Romo tripping over and biting his leash. I try to fix it. He goes for the coffee that I had to put on the ground. Repeat, about 20 times. Oh, and my hair was in my face the whole time because I had to look down at Romo.
At least he went potty...!
Precious. And here he is taking his first bath! (I think he liked it)
Pround mother of the cutest puppy,
Tuesday, March 23, 2010
Isn't he cute?!
He pees on the carpet a lot and two nights ago he peed on our down comforter... twice. (Like I said, NAUGHTY!) And he likes to bite things (my flesh, for instance). But he gives GREAT kisses and likes to sleep on my feet when I'm doing stuff around the kitchen, which I think is really precious.
Wanna meet him? Just come over!

Some of you may be wondering why I haven't posted more blogs about my adventures. I will answer.
I realized that two a week may be a bit excessive for our life. Since PJ works nights, I cook dinner once or twice a week - and it's usually rushed. Also, it gets a bit pricey - we have a very small budget for groceries.
The new format of our Adventures will have to change. I will post everytime I cook/bake/create something new - at whatever pace that may be!
I'll try to make something tonight out of ingredients I already have at home. We shall see...

It's a Snow Day in Memphis TN. Wow, I wasn't even expecting snow! I had my alarm set this morning for 5:00 AM to go to growth group at Nancy's. I had prepared everything for my day last night (packed lunch, picked out clothes, put together a gym bag, etc.) so when my alarm went off, I kept sleeping. Then at about 5:30 I went to stroll out of bed, but I noticed I had two text messages:
"Growth group is canceled due to the weather, enjoy your sleep ladies!" and
"Snow day at school today, let me know if you are going to come in or not"
Naturally, I went back to sleep.... until 10:30 (which gives me a disgusting 13 hours of sleep last night)
Mr.'s favorite breakfast meal is sausage gravy and biscuits and we just so happened to have all th necessary ingredients - so this is half of my Adventure of 2010 #3. The recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman and looks delightful! Keep posted for photos :D
I'm back. Now its Tuesday and yesterday morning I made the biscuits and sausage gravy. It was a disaster! The sausage I used didn't produce the amount of grease that the recipe called for and I accidently added old, expired milk. PJ thought it was gross... and it looked gross. ohhh, better luck next time! I still have to think of one more thing to make...
Twice-Baked Potatoes!! We have a plethera of wild game in our freezer from the Ryan Family (PJ's mom and stepdad) so I thawed some of the bratwurst (what a weird word to spell...) and fried them up. What better to go with brats than some cheezy, bacony, twice baked potatoes! I really wish I had a decent camera because the photo below does not testify to the tastyness of this side!
For Christmas I made my family's traditional Christmas cookies. One of my students requested some more of these cookes for Valentine's day, which was a great idea! However, since Christmas Cookies are a Christmas-only tradition (like sticky-buns!) I changed up the icing a bit. The heart cookies tasted more like Grandma Daniels' Christmas cookies, which I think is an acceptable variation for Valentine's Day! She loved them, especially the ones with purple icing :D
Looking for next week's adeventure!

If in this moment I had more of Jesus in me and battled my fleshly anger, I would have graciously let him in front of me, regardless of his desire to beat me and run me off the road. The horn wouldn't have gone off, my rage wouldn't have lasted until I walked into work, and I wouldn't have been tempted to throw him the finger. (I didn't throw him the finger because that's just rude, not classy, and he would for sure think I didn't love Jesus...but oh did I want to!!)
See, I need more Jesus.
Thanks to a friend (you know who you are but I didn't know if you wanted me to put your name on the internet) for reading my blog! I think you are great... really great! And thank you for assuring me that black and brown can be worn together and look snazzy!
Chickin Parm for din din tonight so you know what that means... Adventures of 2010 #2 coming soon :D

Since I have to wait until I go home so that my mother can teach me how to knit mittins and socks... I'll make cooking/baking my 2010 hobby.
I would like to try 1 new main course recipe and 1 other (side dish or dessert) recipe each week. This week I am making the Pioneer Woman's version of Chicken Parmigiana (my first time ever to cook with red wine!) and Veronica's Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies (YUMMMM) ! I'm also going to do my best to take photos of my adventures, however my camera doesn't do so hot when photographing food/anything indoors. Outside lighting is the best, though!
I love my new hobby!!
My soul was hungry for some time with our Lord this weekend, and I ignored it, and ignored it, until I couldn't do one more thing until I read, thought, and prayed. I will be the first to admit that my time with the Lord is MINIMAL. But when I listened to the Holy Spirit telling me to get away with Him... i felt relaxed and so peaceful. It was EXACTLY what I needed. I'm trying to read through my Bible cover to cover and memorize James. I finished off 1st Samuel and am now moved into 2nd Samuel - the life of King David. I argued with God saying, "I'm in the Samuels.... what am I going to read in there that so great, anyway? I'm bored with it." But that wasn't the point because LIFE ISN'T ABOUT ME AND WHAT I WANT! Just reading God's Word was all I needed and He knew that...
And I need more of Him. Everyone does.... People will say things and I can't help but think, "you need more Jesus..." I will think things or reflect on my selfish week and think, "I need more JESUS!" We all need more Jesus.
I'm going through the Financial Peace videos by Dave Ramsey and at one point he talks about the necessity of discipline in order to gain wealth (or in my case be financially wise). He said no one enjoys discipline... if you do, you're kind of weird. But everyone enjoys what discipline produces. Which is TRUE. When I am disciplined in my diet and exercise I feel great and stay thin. Do I like training for half marathons? NO . Do I like going to the gym to lift after a long day at work? NO. But the product of a disciplined workout is worth it. In the same way, I do not necessarily enjoy sitting down and reading Samuel, but I LOVE what God does with it - the product of quality time with Him!
Discipline has been my biggest battle in my walk with the Lord.
Also... I made sticky buns again today and they were delicious. Although I spilled half of the buttery brown sugar mixture all over me while trying to carry them to my car... Other than that, they were a DELIGHT for sure. Here is the recipe in case you are itching for some:
1 frozen loaf of white bread (I think I used Pillsbury or Kroger brand, in the frozen bread section. It came in a package of 5 loaves.)
1 package non-instant vanilla pudding
5 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Thaw bread according to package directions. Place on a lightly floured surface and roll into roughly a 12x8 rectangle. Melt the butter and spread some across the rolled out dough. In a small bowl, combine pudding, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the butter. Roll up the dough (from long edge to long edge) and cut into 12 equal pieces. Place pieces into a greased 8x8 or 9x9 pan. Pour the remaining butter over the rolls. Cover and let rise. (I let rise over night in the refrigerater and they are ready to bake in the morning). Preheat oven to 350. Bake uncovered for 18-20 minutes or until the top of the rolls are golden brown. Finally, flip the rolls upside down onto a plate and ENJOY!
Next I will have Veronica's strawberry chocolate chip cookies... oh so approriate for Valentine's Day!

In the hottub, we talked about how great her DL class was and about biblical submission between husband and wife. There are very mixed feelings from women about "submission." It's a scary word - and not natural, especially since the woman's rights movement and with high divorce rates, children are used to the mother running the home. And let's be honest, there are few men in this world who "are worthy of submission." KV and Brian Loritz put it pretty well, however, "If your man is under the submission of God, no woman is going to have a problem submitting with that man." Which is so true! I like to use the umbrella example:

Christmas was wonderful. The mister and I began our celebration by a little thing I like to call Sticky Buns... Check these bad boys out:
We heated up the first batch, ate a few, and then ripped open our Wii, Punch Out, Mario Kart, and other sorts of gifts from our families (thank you!). Next we grabbed the laptop and headed to the Starbucks parking lot to Skype. This was quite the humorous experience... my family all sounded like chip munks.
Next we made a breakfast with Craig, Claire, Bear, the Jones Family, and the Detamores. More sticky buns, eggs, sausage, OJ, coffee, hot chocolate, ect. YUMMY!!!
Settlers of Catan was next. Wow...PJ won and it took 2 hours (at least!)
Dinner was FABULOUS! Lamb, Cider Ham, Garlic mashed potatos, Fresh Salad, Green Beans, Rolls, Pumpkin Pie, Christmas Punch.... DELICIOUS! Thanks to the Jones help :D
Good sleep, good times, wake up on Saturday and MOVE!! The week was followed by sorting junk, HOURS AT MLGW (kill me now), and cleaning. There is a spare bedroom so please come for a visit! Our new place has a fireplace, which PJ is loving. We've only set off the fire alarm once! Look at this blaze we've got going on!!
Until next time...
