Oh, to win the lottery...

I found out earlier today that my husband will be layed off from his job as of Friday. I have to say that although money gets tight when he's layed off, I do LOVE IT when he is home. He has been working long hours the past 6 weeks and I feel like we just pass in the hallway. He even has to sleep on the couch in order to get any rest because the baby wakes him up and he needs to be well-rested for work. So, I am really happy that he will be around more, I love to hang out with him! Plus he's gotten behind on his business, he's a carpenter and works for himself quite a bit, so this will give him a chance to get caught up on some work that he's had to put off.

I actually wish he would just work for himself all the time but we live from week to week and it's pretty scary to think about having NO money coming in if there wasn't work for him to do. But, it's fun to dream...having him at home and working his schedule around our family brings me so much happiness.

Jeff and I were dreaming the other night about what we would do if we won the lottery. What big plans we had! Although I will say, to be as broke as we are, there sure is a lot of love in our home and I wouldn't trade that for all the money in the world!

In the middle of Busy

Yesterday was a big day for the Taylor-DeBruler gang. First of all my oldest daughter, Summer, who is 8yrs old, got her glasses. She looked so adorable...(Summer, if you are reading this what I meant to say was mature, intelligent, and classy. Adorable is just a mommy word!) Also, my youngest daughter, Sydney, turned 4 wks old yesterday.

In other news, we ate ravioli last night for dinner, which is always interesting when you have a 16mon old who prefers to feed himself. My sweet husband, who works 10 hour shifts as a carpenter, is such a good sport. I'm sure he was just thrilled to come home from a long day at work and find that I had opened up a can of ravioli for dinner.

Thank you, Lord , for such a sweet, non-complaining husband!

Maybe tonight I can cook something a little more "homemade". Meatloaf sounds great, we'll just have to see how the day unfolds. Being a mom of four has really made me a fly-by-the-seat-of -my-pants kinda girl. Ya never know how the next moment just might change your whole day!

I set this blog up several months ago and this is the first time that I am posting...I always tell my family that I will get to things eventually, so I think it's pretty cool that today "eventually" has finally arrived! I wanted to have a place to talk about my comings and goings as a stay-at-mommy, how great my husband and kids are, and (in general) how very, very blessed I am! I hope that anyone who reads this blog will enjoy it and visit again from time to time, but I want most for my family to read and enjoy these postings because my writings are about them and how very much I love them.
