I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

Tuesday, September 04, 2007


I am about to drive up to the cable office and turn in my cable box and internet modem, so I will be unavailable for several days. This shows how addicted to the intenet I am though - I already have an appointment scheduled for the cable man to come out on Sat and turn it on. Today is Tuesday and I am turning it off. I will have it back up and running at my new house in Hahira by Saturday. For some reason I find that highly amusing. I am so spoiled.
Yesterday when we were driving back to NC (after finally getting an all clear on Zion's breathing, and taking him over to GA on Sunday afternoon) I saw a man using a payphone. I don't think I have ever used a payphone. Pretty much my entire adult life I have had a cell phone. In fact, I don't currently have a home phone. Every since January we have been a cell phone only family. It is just such a foreign concept to me to imagine needing to use a pay phone. I am so spoiled!!! I remember when I was a kid my Aunt and Uncle had "car phones", which were the bulky predecessors of cell phones. Those seemed so fancy, out of our reach, and unnecessary. Now I cannot imagine not having a phone with me at all times. In a couple of days we will be moving, and I will follow behind the moving truck. Andy and I will probably talk frequently, deciding where to get off to eat, get gas, etc. I remember when I was a kid we would follow the moving truck (quite often actually, with my parent's moving record) and have to honk, or flash our lights, or try to pass to get Dad's attention. One time we got seperated in Memphis, moving to Colorado and we just had to stop and pray, because we had no idea how to find Dad again. Back then my parents didn't have credit cards either, so Mom was stuck with four kids, no idea where Dad was, and very little money. I am just so glad that I will never have to experience that again. I love my cell phone!!!
Andy is ready to go, so I better scram. I'll be back in touch again after we get to our new house!

This weekend when we were putting up the ceiling in our downstairs room, there was a dilemma to arise where they guys didn't know what to do about the cable/satellite wires, they were in the way. I said "just get rid of em!" I could gladly do without, though I don't use it for internet, so that would be a different story!
I remember my mom driving me and Chris all the way to Indiana when we were little...and NO cell phone.
Here's another thing to think of:
vacation planning with NO INTERNET! AGH!!! The horror and uncertainty and "no vacancy signs!"

I remember doing the family vacation thing and trying to find a hotel where we were when we got there. There was one time when we were going to either the mountains or Florida (I honestly can't remember) where we drove until after 5:00 in the morning just trying to find a place to stay. We wound up about an hour an a half away from where we were going and all we did was sleep. So, yeah, my childhood vacations where the bomb my friend...

O wow....I think I will show my age some when I say that my family still had a rotary dial phone in their house when I got married! Hopefully you do know what those are. Haaha! My son was quite impressed with one he found one day at a college. He said "Hey Mom, come look at this COOL thing!" "It sounds soooo cool after you dial a number and listen to the sound it makes rotating around!" It was a very old phone and out of use and on display as some antique thing I suppose. Hmmm...things of my day are already becoming ANTIQUES!
I'm not that OLD....or am I?

As of this past week we have became a cell phone only family as well. No one ever called on the home phone and found paying for it's use was USELESS.

I hope that your move has been going well and all is calming down to a low roar now.

May God bless you and your week ahead!

Love ~ Debby :)
