So the other day I went to church with some friends. Their services are on both Sundays and Wednesdays. This service was on clearing your life of distractions and living for "God". What a moving and exciting service. It was different then anything I have EVER seen, heard at church.
They group is small, but oh so powerful. And the sermon was amazing.
But, back to the topic on hand....DISTRACTIONS!!
Everones life is full of them.
Some are big..
Some are small.
But whatever they are..... How are they affecting your life.
Are they all consuming?
Are they left on the backburner. There but not really a huge issue.
My question is how are you able or willing to turn those distractions over to Heavenly Father? Can you let them go and give them to him to deal with, or are you like me and feel that oh I got this, I can handle it.
Where quiet frankly I am at my breaking point. Why do I find it so hard to turn over these distractions to him???

I know yesterday for some reason you got 2 new post and NOW another one today.....
is this world coming to???
I just have had the kind of day that I guess is one I want to share with all for the BLOGGERS
out there. It wasn't like anything to miraculous happened. But it was a GOOD day.
Tayson didnt wet his pants at school!!
Tanner didnt have any meltdowns!!
Toree only made her brother cry twice!!
Toree had an assignment this last weekend to bring home a COMPUTER doll !
This doll cries,
This doll is an example of what its like to have a baby!
BOY was it an eyeopener for her.
She told me more then once
I WILL NEVER HAVE KIDS!!!
what a great assignment foe a 14 yr old girl!
When I was in school we had to take a 5 pound bag of flour to school.
THEY DONT CRY ALL NIGHT!!
Paul started school!!
See, nothing out of the NORMAL.
Except that is that is out of the NORM!!
I have had so many balls in the air for so long that today just had me wondering...
when are all the balls going to fall????
When am I going to have to make another trip to PCMC for more testing?
When will the next BALL fall!!!
AND then it happend!
The phone rings and one of Tanners new Doctors want him to have a few more test done.
No not for the Autism!
This is for sleep/breathing issues!
Then he wants labs.
Thats NO big deal untill they call and say the test they were looking at was normal...
They find some other abnormalities,
And then we have to get more labs done!
The Doctor calls personally and says to call him back!
FREAK OUT is an understatement!
Somehow his Red blood cell is low!
So he wants to test again in 4 months.
Cant this kid get a break!
And he needs glasses too.
SEE just a typical NORMAL day!
How did I ever work 40+ hours and still raise these kids???
Have a great TUESDAY!

Well I have completed my 2 first full days as a STAY AT HOME MOM with all her children in school.
Ok so Monday wasnt too bad, and by 1130 I was calling my Mom to see what she was doing..
I couldnt believe it either.
Even worse I called Paul to see if I could come have lunch with him at work!
Thank goodness today was back to norm..
Anyways back to the story.
I had to pick up Tanner for a hearing aid appt.
Then pick up Tayson at 1230.
Tanner was "birthday" shopping with Grma,
then off to the middle school for Toree.
And we were off to Ogden for Tanner and Nikko's party!
shout out to Breann for planning it!
And a SPECIAL thanks to
Kim's coldblooded friends.
Tanner fell in LOVE with the 40 pound SNAKE!!!
He was cute carried it EVERYWHERE!
How time flies when you are having fun!!!
What a silly catch fraze.
But how true it is.
I cant believe we are into the 3rd week of school already.
And guess what the kids are LOVING it!!!
All 3 of them have been to school on time and stayed the full day!
This is a GREAT thing especially for Tanner.
Tayson is cruising right along with Kindergarten.
Toree is LOVING being the top dog at Middle School.
Paul starts classes back up tomorrow.
And I am at home,
trying to find my niche in the routine of home life.
It has been a little strange and well even overwhelming at times.
It was easier being home with the kids here.
I now find myself leaving in their cartoon from morning throughout the day.
Just so I have noise.
I am learning I can make the drive to Salt Lake and back before the bus get home.
I am learning that when the phone rings and the school number shows up it IS NOT always to have me come pick up Tanner.
I am learning that it is ok to go have lunch with my friends and NOT feel guilty about not taking the kids.
So se everyone at the Spatig House is learning!
