I'm Home!

Well Dallas was great! I had a fabulous time. And it wasn't that hot. I think I left at just the right time, because it seemed like it was going to be a hot day today. I spent most of my time being lost and always wondering where I was. I'm sure Jenny got tired of me asking where we were all the time. I don't know how you big city people do it. I'm afraid I wouldn't get out that often for fear of not being able to find my back! I guess you get used to it though.

School was good. I really learned a lot. I spent three days in class, and learned a great deal about lending in Texas. Now I am on to take the test. They really push you to come back and take the test prep class, but really I feel that they just want you spend more money. So I am going to do it based on what I already know and learned this weekend. I am pretty nervous. She said the test is hard, because of the way they word the questions. It is 75 multiple choice questions based on laws, math, and definitions. I am planning on taking the test in about a week.

I feel pretty bogged down by it all right now, because I have to take the test (not to mention pass it), get fingerprinted, and get my application all in by August 31st, or the state law will change. And of course every single one of those steps cost money. So I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed right now by getting this all done. Once I get it done though, I will feel a lot better!!!

I did have a great time with Jenny. She took me out to some places I had never been, and we just had a great time talking and laughing. Jenny and I are similiar in many respects. One being that we are not big talkers. And it's nice to just to be able to sit with someone and not to have to say anything and still feel comfortable. We did get pretty nostalgic about our college days though, which was fun. Last night Tim, Jenny, Emily (her sister) and I all went to Joe T. Garcia's to eat. It was nice, and Emily always sparks great conversations. So we had a good time together. I am SO glad that I got to see Jenny and spend time with her. Next time it will be all for fun. I'm going to go back and not have to go to school. I was so thankful for her and Tim driving me around, because I'm afraid I just wouldn't have survived on my own!

The kids should be back in a little bit. Colt met Neva in Amarillo and is bringing them home. I missed them a lot!!!! I hated being gone on Kyle's birthday, and it's been wierd being without Mason! I never left the other two that early on, but this just couldn't be helped. I can't wait to see them. My parents got Madi signed up for soccer while I was gone. I can't wait to watch Madi play. She is going to have so much fun!

Saturday we'll have a little party for Kyle at Chuck E. Cheese. We can't seem to escape that place. Both of the kids love that place. I try to get them to branch out and go somewhere else, but no, they just love that mouse.

So tomorrow it's back to the grind. It won't be long before school starts!

I'm going to post about this later, but I have to ask you all something. And please, please, please, if you don't comment please tell me what you think if you have an opinion. Have any of you seen the DVD or read the book called, The Secret ???? What do you think about it?

I haven't seen the DVD or read the book. If it's the one Oprah had on her show, which I also didn't see but heard about, I don't think I have a very favorable opinion. As far as I understand it is a lot of "mind over matter". Taking the place of belief and trust in Jesus and God. If I am misinformed please feel free to let me know. What is your opinion?

I haven't read or seen it, but my thoughts are a lot like Susan's. My impression of it is, do what makes you happy and feels good. You have the power, kind of "it's all about you" mentality.

I guess I shouldn't judge if I haven't read or seen it. I'm interested in your thoughts, too.

I've not read it, but everything I've heard about it and read about it makes me want to run - far and fast.

Glad you're home!

I guess my feelings on the book are....doesn't God want us to take control of our lives? Isn't there a lot of 'free will' involved in our own happiness? Yes he is there, guiding us, helping us and all that...but doesn't he expect us to choose our own destiny? I guess that is my take on it all. Not to be argumentative, but just bringing in another point of view.

There is someone in my life right now that prays and prays and prays for this one thing...I can't really talk about it....but she has never gotten it. And for her to get this one thing, she has to DO a little something herself...and I guess that's where I'm coming from. That's where I think the law of attraction comes in. She has been 'attracting' bad things and not taking control of herself.
