Grocery Shopping at the Commissary

Today the Hubby and I decided that we would go and get groceries on Post at the Commissary. We hadn't been to the Commissary yet, and boy was it an experience! Today was retiree and senior citizen day!!!! Not really, but that is what was at the Commissary this morning! Know don't get me wrong, I love older people, after all, that is my specialty with Nursing, Geriatrics.

What would have taken me about an hour grocery shopping, took double if not longer today! Poor Hubby was asked numerous amounts of times to get heavy things off of shelves by various older people. Such things as big bags of dog food! Maybe next time the Hubby should take off his uniform and put on civilian clothes before we go to the Commissary?!?!

Oh well, after all was said and done, we enjoyed getting groceries together and I saved $35.35 with coupons!!! How have you saved lately, I'd like to know? Please share.

I'm Back

For all of my "readers", after a long absence, I am finally back. Thank you for the prayers that were lifted up for my family during the death of my Grandaddy. We were all very saddened and still are saddened with his death. It's still hard to believe that he is gone. Death knows no time or place. As I type this I pray that each one of you reading this is right with the Lord and has asked Jesus into your heart as your Personal Savior. Don't you want to spend eternity with Him? I know that I do, and I pray that if you have never asked Christ into your heart, that you would, what a better way to start off the new year, with a new life in Christ!

My Grandfather

Tonight, my family and I mourn the loss of my Grandfather. One year and 2 days after his wife, my Grandmother died. He was a wonderful person, there are so many memories that I will cherish forever of him. Praise be to God for his amazing grace, my Grandfather is now in Heaven with our Lord.

Please pray for strength for our family over the next few days as arrangements are made, he is survived by two daughters, one being my Mom whom is the oldest, and by his only sibling his sister and the rest of our family, four Grandchildren and two Great-Grandchildren.

It's Been A While

It's been a few days since I have blogged.......try a week! I have been sooo busy with unpacking and trying to get the house organized and also gettting the Cristmas Tree and all of the Christmas decorations up! Did I get it all done............YES! I am officially finished with everything in the new house! It feels great to walk in any room in the house knowing that it is all unpacked and organized!

I felt so caught up that we picked the kids up from school yesterday when school was out and we went and spent the night at my parents(they live about an hour and a half away). The guys planned on going hunting this morning and us girls, well, you know what girls like to do....we went SHOPPING! We had a fun time shopping too, we must have hit about 10 stores and the Mall! Oh yeah and we had lunch too, we love the salad bar a Ruby Tuesdays, so that is what we just had to have for lunch. The guys, well they went hunting getting up at the crack of dawn! They had fun and they had lunch at Hardees. A great day and time for everyone!

Now we're back at our home. Tomorrow morning we are venturing out to find a Church to go to. We are going to try the First Baptist Church here in our town. It's so hard when you move and you have to find a new Church, my only rule is NO filling out "new visitor card"! We did that at one place where we were stationed and we were always getting visits from the "New Visitor Committee"! It got so bad we had to tell them to leave us alone! Oh well, God will lead us where he wants us to be.
