My Sweet, Strong Cousin

Kate Hope, she was the strongest person I've ever known or laid eyes on. When i visited her for the first and last time, her spirit was so strong it permeated the whole room; she wrapped around my soul and caressed my own spirit. In the midst of her trial she gave me comfort!

There are only two other people that I know that are as strong as Kate: her parents. While I was blubbering my head off, they comforted me! I don't understand that strength yet, but I can only hope in time I can.

SOOO I've been really bad about keeping up with my blog!! For one thing, I keep forgetting to take my camera with me to things.

But here's something new: we got a coffee table!! Curtis just wanted something he could put his feet on. I still need to paint it.

And guess where we got it from??
You got it--Trisha who got it from bulk trash!! I sure get a lot of furniture from the trash...
We've saved a lot of money that way!!

SO it kinda sucks right now, since I had a little money epiphany last night. We went through 5000 dollars in just over 3 months. I mean, how sad is that?? And I promise, I really didn't know that I was spending so much! I have a bad memory when it comes to stuff like that. Numbers and me, well, we just don't mesh! So I've made myself this little budget card that I will keep in my wallet. It falls out every time I open it, so it's a good reminder for me every time I want to buy something. I just hope it works well enough and save us some muney!

Sofia, one of the girls I nanny is sitting on my lap as I type this. She wants to leave you all a message:
