my purchase...

so i bought a sewing machine yesterday. the thing is...i don't know how to sew. this may seem like a waste of money but the thing is i have always wanted to learn how to sew. i want to make quilts and fun decorative pillows and dresses for hailey and sew randy's jeans pockets so his pens and coins will stop falling out. i feel like it was a good purchase...let's consider it an investment. i just figure if i get really good at it we will save money. i first need to learn how to thread the needle through the bobbin and up until about 16 hours ago i didn't even know what a bobbin was. anyway, i am very excited, and i figured if i got REALLY good i could even contribute financially to the family by making things and selling them on etsy or ebay. i think i may take a class at michael's or something. i know it sounds like i am trying to justify my purchase...i am not...i am very confident in my purchase...just not in my skill...but i will learn. btw, randy asked me after we left target and were on our way home after buying it if this meant that we had to homeschool our 9 children and make their clothes out of his old jeans...i assured him that that was not the reasoning or the result of owning a sewing machine...not that their is anything wrong with that =)
and that's not all...i got a much needed haircut today...which i am also very excited about. anyway...until tomorrow...

My First Blog

So this is my first blog. Well, not first ever, just first on this site. Several years ago I used the XANGA site to do my blogging. I'm not sure if XANGA still exists or not but oh well. The purpose of this blog is for my venting purposes. I love to write but I do not do much of it. I honestly don't care if no one ever reads my blogs. I just need to put my thoughts on paper (or a computer screen) sometimes. I also want to be able to share what God is teaching me and what He is doing in my life. This is probably the only blog that will ever have capital letters because i am way too lazy to have to push two keys at once. I am married to an awesome guy. We have a 13 month old little girl who has brightened our lives and made us really realize how awesome God is. We go to Edgefield Baptist Church and love it. I am a stay-at-home mom. That is what I have always wanted to do and feel blessed that God has put us in a situation where I am able to do that. Anyway...I guess that is it for my first blog!
