A springy day

One thing about me is I love being outside. I love my home and I like being in it, but outdoors in the sunshine and fresh air is where I am the happiest.

Yesterday was a beautiful and unseasonably warm day so I gathered up my 8 children that were home (my older 3 were working) and we headed out for a drive.

We stopped by the gas station and then Wal Mart. The kids all pooled their money so they could buy themselves a snack. I actually like it when they do that. Not because it saves me money... but because they are learning that hey, this stuff costs money!

I should have taken more pictures but I didn't.... I just enjoyed the day with my awesome kids. :)

I am so grateful for this wonderful van that God provided.
Paid cash so no car payment.

I love these people! <3

Moi, yours truly, me

New blog!

I've created a new blog to share my weight loss journey with you.  This is the "about me":

"Yo! Most of you know me from my main blog
~*~ Countrylivingmama ~*~ .
My name is Janet. I'm a Christian wife to 1 and mama to 11... yes, I did say 11!
I started this blog for me. I will be 44 this year and as my children get older (2 yrs - 22 yrs) I am realizing that I've spent many years taking care of other people more than myself.
But, I think it's about time I started taking a bit more care of me. I've neglected my health as well as had bad habits. I've for some reason thought I was selfish if I took care of myself. My body. My appearance.
But not anymore. It's time. And I'm pretty excited about it!
Come along with me on this journey.... it's gonna be a cool ride"

Not so wordless Wednesday
