Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Sunday Review

Good morning friends. This is day number one of my vacation at home and I am excited. The next 3 days will be full of anticipation, preparation and cleaning. There grocery lists to make, turkeys to buy and start thawing and dreaming of Christmas. As you can see I am pretty exciting.

Got home from work Sunday morning and made it to church. It was once again awesome and read Michaels view of the sermon, click here. It was also communion Sunday and that was another beautiful experience. I finally feel like we have a home church. I love to just wander before and after church, catching up with friends. It feels so good. I can believe we were so against going to such a big church. I can not imagine being anywhere else. Yesterday I signed up to volunteer every other week in the nursery, feeding, changing and loving on the babies. Hope they contact me soon as I am really excited about that.

We were able to talk with Tymm and Laura as we seem to do this every Sunday and once again they make me smile. They are just a wonderful couple who have become such encouraging friends who are also adopting a baby from China and they are adopting from Ethiopia. Check their blog out here. We can not wait to celebrate with them!

I came home and napped for a few hours and woke up to Michael cleaning the computer room, where sister Kelly will be staying during the holiday. We had a late dinner of spagetti followed by watching one of my favorite movies, A Walk to Remember!! It was a good day and now I am up early ready to play the Christmas music and start some intense cleaning. Wish me luck. I also plan on hitting the gym if my feet will hit me. I think I am going try Laura idea and get a size bigger shoes than I usually where and see if that helps. I will also check the link that Kim left as I saw an ad/article on them in Good Housekeeping this week.

Ill check in later with my progress!!

Just 2 days left to join the Christmas Card exchange. If you are interested, just click on the yahoo button below, join the group and fill out the database. I will have the list ready by Wednesday afternoon.

I think I can actually hear the music! What is your favorite Christmas cd to listen to? Hard to choose, huh?

I am thrilled you feel so good about your church! I feel a church should feel like your second home, don't you? I have gone to mine since I was eight years old. Wow, that's a long time.

Enjoy you vacation and rest when you can!

Can you believe that I've never seen A Walk to Remember? I've heard really good things about it.

It's great that you're able to take off the next few days. Have a great vacation!
