High School here we come

Well it's finally that time to start thinking about High School. It really does just seem like yesterday that I was going and now i'm seeing my oldest go. Amazing.

We got to visit the high school here called A&M Consolidated. It's a huge school and I was trying not to say to my son,"Wow, I'd get lost in here." 
It was interesting to watch him with all the peers. It was definately a social hour that night. Man, he sure is growing up fast. I thank the Lord everyday for such an amazing child that He has given me that has such a heart for Him, the desire to succeed in all he does, a great friend, and respects authority. Something that I see so often lacking in today's youth. Bless Him Lord with the hunger to seek you in all he does and protect him from harms way when he chooses to go against the norm during his High School years. 

Calgon Take Me Away!

Saturday started off just like any other day that is until my 3 year old got this look on his face of panic and proceeded to projectile vomit until I could run for a towel. He then spent the next 3 days with having off and on fever, no appetite and the strong will of wanting mom, mom and more mom. Bless his heart you could tell that he felt miserable. Maybe I should have put a picture of me in there too but there were days that I never even brushed my hair so pictures were out. It's amazing how all the crude that can be found around everywhere doesn't get us more sick. I'm happy to report that he is on the mend. It may take a few days to get his appetite back  and feel 100% but thank you God for healing our broken bodies when need it.

Happy Valentines

Happy Valentines Friends!

Thanks for coming to our Friday coffee. Can I offer you some delicious raspberry tea or coffee along with some yummy chocolates? I just can't resist these. They seem to call out my name as soon as they get in my house. 
   I do feel that it's the one time that I just indulge and say,"It's o.k." Isn't it amazing how many different treats that you can find in the store or bakery? I just wanted to get some for my kids to give out at school and the choices are overwelming. Plus, it cracks me up how it's a contest about who can give out the "coolest" valentines. My sons are like,"Mom, it's not cool to give out suckers, we have to give out fun candy like AIRHEADS. So, now I know. 
     I'm going to take a little poll on my post today. I'd loved to know what you find romantic.

  • A night out on the town with eating out, movie, or dancing
  • A quiet night at home, home cooked meal, rent a movie , cozy fire
  • A picnic lunch at the park
  • A handwritten poem from your hubby
  • Flowers
Of course, I wouldn't give a poll without taking it myself. What I find romantic is a quiet night at home, home cooked meal(from my husband) and also he cleans it up, a great movie like Sleepless in Seattle or When Harry Met Sally and a great fire that's cracklin in the background. 
I might even get lucky(hey this is PG) and get a foot rub which I LOVE!!!! So, if any of my friends want to contact the significant other and hint on the foot rub then I owe you. 
Whatever your day brings, just remember how much you are loved by so many people that you may not ever get to meet but share a common thread of wanting their home to be a sanctuary for their families. Happy Valentines to all my Company Girls. I hope it's special as all of you are. 
Toodles and<>,

Company Girl Coffee 2/6/09


O.K., if this is how you are feeling today then you are not alone. Many of us just don't have enough hours in the day to get all those daunting tasks done that we need to do. Luckily, I have discovered Rachel Anne's website @ and have gotten my life in order. She has introduced us to an amazing schedule that has put peace back into my life. Luckily now, my "I like to do" list is outweighing my "I have to do" list. 
    These are some of my A-ha moments this week:
  • That paperclip that is on the floor is not going to magically grow legs and walk into the drawer. I'm going to finally pick it up and put it away.No more groundhog day for me!
  • I don't have to keep a million magazines. Recycle them to friends!!!
  • It feels good to wake up to a sink that isn't full of dishes and is spic-n-span.
  • I can wash a load of clothes in the morning so they are ready to go when I come home.
  • The kids don't care that i'm not Betty Crocker. They just want a meal that is not in a can.
  • I can still look and feel sexy for my husband,ooohhlaaaalaaa!                                                     
Thanks again for visiting and hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
