Update on # 5 and # 6 ....

from the previous post. So, as the title explains I have an update.

I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!

My hunny and I have been talking about getting married for the past couple of months and going to look at rings. While I thought we would get hitched sooner or later I didn't expect him to have already bought a ring (which I adore and he had custom made). He proposed on thursday night, he made a candle light dinner and as we ate he asked if i wanted my Christmas gift, me being the impatient person that I am said yes, and then he got down on one knee and popped the question......and then I screamed YES!!!

We've been together for about 3 years and I'm so happy that i will get to share the rest of my life with a wonderful man of God who just wants to spread Jesus and strive to do what is right. I love him very very much!

(I tired to post a pic of the ring, but blogger was acting up and wouldn't let me.)

No Auto Loans= Disaster

Really? no loans for the auto companies but they loaned money to all the financial institutions that are not doing with the money they got what they said they would.......really?

I need new people in charge of our government, because apparently they, and all the people who think that 'we should just let the auto companies fail' have NO FREAKIN" CLUE!!!!!!!

If the auto companies...and their respective auto part suppliers fail the amount of people who will be without jobs is going to be staggering. This will lead to the amount of people being able to pay their debt lower and lead to more foreclosures guaranteed.

This is ridiculous, if the financial institutions would have done with their bailouts what they should have, which is loosen up the lending and credit markets, then people would have been able to lease and buy cars and that would have helped some. Yes, they jacked it up, but I don't understand why people are so quick to jump down their throats about it and not about the financial bailouts.

Well, for those that thought that the auto loans would have been a bad deal, congratulations, you got your wish, now watch a lot of working class peoples lives fall apart.

A New Day

So, how was your thanksgiving?

Despite that fact that my step-father's homegoing was the wednesday before thanksgiving, Mines was good. I have lots to be thankful for, I have been blessed in sooooo many ways and I give God all the glory for he is sooooo worthy!

I have been still working on the same scarf for a week plus now, and still don't have a picture of it, but i really will get it up.

I finished the book "Three Cups of Tea", it was very good and very informative. It did take a while to get through the first couple of chapters, because I am not into mountain climbing, but once the story unfolded about building the schools for those who are without, I was immediately hooked. I learned alot and I am moved by the work that is being done by Greg Mortenson and his organization. If you get a chance, I highly recommend reading it.

Have a happy Monday!
