One month late...

Sorry for being away from the blog world so long! No one can imagine the incredible stress that we have been under in this time! At some point, I may be able to talk about some of it. But for now, just trust me--our path is anything but simple at this point!! After all of the roller coster rides, serious health challenges, (will talk about these soon!) and major heart breaks, we are beginning to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel--even if we don't understand it all! Thank God! God is still in control!!

Philippians 4:6-7
"6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving letyour requests be made knownunto God.7: And the peace of God, which passethall understanding, shall keepyour hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

One month late...simply means that we are running very behind on our schedule! We had plans for our little house, A.K.A. the travel trailer, to be heading for it's spot in the country May 30th with the notion that we would be moving out  ofour big house soon after. Obviously we have been delayed, but the new launch date is rapidly approaching. I am SO ready! Actually at this moment, we are not certain of where the little house is going to rest, but most likely will be somewhere in a peaceful country surrounding.

My health seems to be continually deteriorating, and this is one factor in closing the animal rescue, however, many forces came together to take the situation out of our hands, and at this moment, it just hurts too much to discuss it. Just know that part, and maybe most of our heartbreak, comes from having to destroy everything that we ahd built--a life-saving effort for 6 years!!!Those doors are almost completely shut, and that chapter will be closed! Thank you God for the Rainbow Bridge!!

Still looking and longing for peace and simplicity!! Little house, little house--you may still be my North Star!

Moving Down The Simple Path,

Well, I didn't want to make a biig post about the RV, I just wanted to say that we've been decorating it in frog stuff. I thought It'd look weird, but it's actually kinda cute. There's die-cut frog rugs, frog trash cans, frog shower cutains, frog soap dishes, frog stufties, frog wire thingies, frog toothbrush holders, frog towels, frog handtowels, frog handtowel holders, frog stickers, frog pillows, frog blankets, etc, etc. I'm going to post pictures of soon as I take them! It's really cute.

You know what I....

So, I'm back! *The crowd screams in terror* Haha! No, I guess I never really left, I just took a break.(Wait, isn't that kinda the same thing?) :D Things have been crazy here, in more ways than one. buuut, to catch up, I'm going to  break it up into sections: crafts, me, & the RV! And, I plan to make each section a post...because this would be one heck of a post if I tried to cram all of that into one. This post is going to be about me. Well, sort of. I'm going to switch off and have 1 thing I like, then 1 thing I don't =]

The title of this blog is what I find myself saying alot. "Y'know what I hate?" or "Y'know what I love?" Well, I don't LOVE stuff, but you know what I mean. I think everybody says that. Like, "Oooh, I LOVE that song!!" ....Or is it just me..?

1: Like--I love the beach. I prefer the nice Atlantic one over here, as opposed to the FREEZING COLD Pacific one, but hey, I'll take either one :)

2: Don't Like--Milk crust. I'm not kidding. You know the milk crust that gets around the edge of the milk jug sometimes? I HATE IT! Not really sure why... I just do :)

3: Like--Duck tape. I. Am. In. Love. You can make so many things with it! Plus, they have awesome colors.

4: Don't Like--Mosquito's. They have no purpose, and I'm allergic to them or something, so whenever they bite me I get a GIANT bump. :/

5: Like--Knick-Knacks. (Not sure if that's how you spell it) I love little trinkets and stuff. I can't help it, Imma pack rat at heart :)

6: Don't Like--Lightning. I couldn't really care less about thunder, but I freak out whenever theres lightning. :S

7: Like--OWLS! I love owls. They're so darn cute! Actually, I'm in the process of making an owl pillow for my Nephew, Dylan, 'cause he loves 'em too! (He's 3 by the way, lol)

8: Don't Like--Whenever I start singing a song that I REALLY don't like, and then it gets stuck in my head.

9: Like--Tic Tacs. Haha, I know that's stupid, but I love Tic Tacs. Especially Orange ones!!

10: Don't Like-Roaches. They give me the creeps. I think I have a phobia of them or something.


12: Don't Like--Plain White Walls. With nothing on them. It's so boring. Even plain colored walls drive me crazy. I love having a busy room, with stuff everywhere. ( And I mean decorations! Because I have stuff everywhere anyway ;))

13: Like--RAINBOWS!! Anything with rainbows=awesome

14: Don't Like--Putting something in a safe place and then forgetting where it's at...does that make me old? O.O

15: Like--Music. I like pretty much any kind of music, and listen to it all the time, especially when I'm doing something, like cleaning my room or writing or school stuff.

16: Don't Like--Poetry. I HATE POETRY!!! I had to memorize a poem a couple months I sort of turned it into a rap song. And I did it! I can still remember it! I have a hard time remembering things like poems and stuff,(Which I believe are useless anyways--I mean, when in the world are you going to need to recite a poem?!) but usually the first time I hear a song, I can remember it. Even if I don't like it. And I still can remember it years later. I can also remember stuff from when I was really little. So I guess I do have a good memory...just not with poems.

15: Like--Movies! I love all kinds of movies. Cartoons, real ones, anything. Favorites are: Meet The Robinson's, Flushed Away, A Walk To Remember, The Last Song, The Majestic, etc, etc. I could go on all day :]

16: Don't Like--Confusing books. What I mean is, a book that you still  don't understand, even after you've read the same paragraph about 50 times.

17: Like--The numbers 2, 7, and 17.

18: Don't Like--The number 3.

19:Like--Roses. Especially red ones :)

***Right here is where I realized I should have put dislike, instead of "Don't like" But since I've written 20 already, I reallly don't wanna go change 'em all.

20: Dislike--Meat. Not sure if this counts, haha.

21: Like--Earrings!!

22: Dislike--ANYTHING whole grain.

23: Like--Pickles. I love pickles. But I don't like the spear kind. Only the whole ones :D

24: Dislike--Granola or nutrition bars. Don't know why, I just don't like most of them. EXCEPT for Clif Bars. Those are awesome.

25: Like--Bloomburg Businessweek Magazine. I know, I know, weird. But, I love reading it :)

26: Dislike--The words "We'll See". The 'rents say that ALL the time.

27: Like--CoffeEeEeEeEe!!!!! Especially (I say that alot, don't I?) from Starbucks!!

28: Dislike--Sugar. I mean, I love the taste, don't get me wrong!! :D But whenever I eat alot of it, I get suuuuper sleepy. But whenever I drink coffee....well, I don't stop talking for about 5 years. Hehe, not thaat long. Maybe 4?

29: Like--Sour stuff. I LOVE SOUR CANDY!! But, the weird thing is, I'm like immune to it or something. That's not really the right word...but, I've always been able to eat a lemon (A WHOLE ONE!!) without making a face, or eat super sour candy without making a face. Kinda strange..

Okay, I'm having trouble with the "Dislike" part of this list. I can't think of anything :/ That ALWAYS happens whenever I do something! Like, stuff will just pop into my head and I'll randomly say "You know what I hate? The number 3." or something to that effect anyway. But, whenever I try to write it down, I can't think of ANYTHING!! So, I'll just write down what I like.

30:Hot stuff. Jalapenos, especially. Like Sour stuff, Hot stuff doesn't bother me.

31:Raw Ramen Noodles. I have no idea who told me about this--probably my sis, since she's the Ramen Queen--But I love eating the noodles just right out of the package.

32: Colors! I love all of the colors...except for 1. Brown. The only time I like brown is when it's paired with blue.  My FAVE colors are Blue, Pink, and Zebra. Does that count? :D But the SHADES of those 2 colors are what matters. I absolutely HATE pastel colors!! With blue I like teal-ish best, and with pink I like neon and hot pink.

33: My DS! I have 3 DS's. 3DS, Which I got for Christmas, DS Lite, which I got about 3 years ago whenever my last DS Lite broke (which I got when I was 7), and I have the ORIGINAL DS, the very first one, which was my sisters, but she gave it to me. So that one is like a-n-c-i-e-n-t! But they're all really cool, which is why I don't really want to get rid of any of them...OH  YAH! AND I have a Game Boy Pocket. Or a Game Boy of those. And a tetris thing where all you can play on it is yeah...I have alot of game thingys.

34: Singing. I love singing, even though I sound REALLY horrible..

35: Dancing. Like singing, I love dancing, but cannot dance AT ALL.

36: Starbucks=awesome. I know, it's sad, but I can't help myself. Plus, It's fun to go through the Drive-Thru so Dad has to order...when he has no clue what he's doing. "Uhhhh, I need a Va--" "A French Vanilla Latte!" "I need a French Vanilla Cappichi--" "Latte." Starbucks person:"Uh, sir?" "I need a French Vanilla LATTE!" *As we drive away:"Hmm, maybe I should've told you to order a Non-Caffinated French Vanilla Frappichino with Whipped Cream."

37: I LOVE BOOKS! Most of the time I read around 4 books at one time. I love series books more than antyhing. One series I love is the Lady Pinkerton Series. It's a mystery of sorts, and I like mystery books alot.

38:Sudoku! Mom used to do these, and she got me hooked :)

39: Word puzzles! Any kind--word searches, crosswords...anything!!

40: Last, but not least: Math! I love math!! Algebra is my favorite.

All Done! :)
