Suze said something interesting.
"If you have messy cabinets, you have messy finances. If your cabinets are generally clean so is your finances."
I began to wonder..is there a correlation? I like order not chaos but I do have cabinets that are out of order. I don't organize the pantry all the time. Actually messes overwhelm me so I tend to close the door. We also care greatly about our finances. They overwhelm me too. More conversations about that than anything these days.
What do you think? Pipe in..I'm curious. Feel free to leave an anonymous note if it's too personal.

My sweet sister-in friend. (I hate sister-in-law) made me a great dinner and cake tonight. I was so blessed to be able to just show up and eat.Yah me. Thank you Joanna for the scumpious dinner. Even Gabe, my anti-pasta boy, ate seconds!!! This is my first birthday with my brother in years. How long.. couldn't tell you..long time. Not sure he was gonna make it home tonight but he did! Thank you Robby. So.. 41 is good. God is good. He has been so true to me every step of the way. I am truly blessed. And that's not a cliche. I really mean it.
These beautiful flowers are from my sweet husband.
Who knows what were discussing... My birthday cook and I. So glad she's here!!!!
I love my family. Baby Keaton is growing so quickly.
Joanna made this delicious meal and amazing cake. YUMMY! Chocolate!!!
We missed seeing the kids. Kadence was so happy to see Cousins tonight.
I wish you could hear her say Uncle Rell. Too Cute.
Is it this? No.. getting warmer..
So when we were leaving I asked T if he remembered my perfume (that's all I wanted for my B'day this year)... No, sweet man..BUT he said we were gonna play hot and cold for another surprise at home. The kids and he bought me my very own Milano cookies. Great with coffee! Ok another story..a little of track here. We're terrible at cards. Just terrible. We decided not to get 'em anymore cause it just wasn't worth it. Well, Terrell remembered this time but forgot to sign it so I had him read it to me out loud and tomorrow..it's going back to the store. LOL. It's the thought that counts.

Fall is in the air. The leaves are starting to turn and fall, I'm in long sleeves more than short, and I soak in the tub every night. Yep, Fall has arrived. Our September has been glorious. Perfect weather really.
Of course with Fall comes Bronco games. I love supporting the home team even more now that we live here. T has always been a fan and tivos all the games. We can only support them via our living room couch! Good thing it's comfy. Maybe next year we can get tickets in the BIG house.
I have my annual cough. It came early this year followed by a cold virus thingy I had. I am NOT happy about it. It is getting in the way of a good workout and life. I did exercise twice this week and fought through it but left feeling irritated by it. Nauseous more like it. I started on Claritin and various other drugs and herbs. I am praying for a quick recovery. I don't want this to last THREE months again. Note the hot tea.
Gabe ventured out at midnight the other night to get the third of the Eldest trilogy. He reads it every waking moment he isn't working or doing something. Almost finished..
The older three kiddos started with all their Bible studies this week. Lina has Awana now too.
4 nights. 4 kids. Busy.
T and I still love each other! Our anniversary of 19 years is next month. WOW!
Life is good. Happy Sunday.

I went to Old Navy yesterday to buy my fall long sleeve shirts. Wayyy disappointed. They are so thin you can see your hand through them. Poor quality this year. I actually wrote their customer service headquarters. I buy those shirts EVERY year. I was so shocked. And sad. Now where do I go to find my modest long sleeve knits?!!!!

Yesterday was a BIG day for Becca. She got her permit!!!! In Colorado, you can do an on-line program and then have your parents teach you to drive. Saves money. So.. my sweet daughter has doddled with the on-line program but finally finished yesterday. Yah!! So off to the DMV we went. She passed her permit test and then we waited..and waited..and waited. Ok, this DMV was a little busy. Patience comes along with most DMV visits. I wanted to start the wave or a sing-a-long. The girls poo pooed this idea. Something about places with lots of people that makes me want to do that. Hmm. After two hours we left with smiles on our face and a permit in hand. That evening T took her out for her first real drive. On 9/11/09 Becca will have her license. Yep. One year of waiting here. Can't wait!

It's mighty chilly outside this morning! Fall is in the air. I love the fall. Apples, pumpkins, my anniversary, birthday and warm bread. I have my Laura Ingalls Wilders gown out and socks on my feet. I'm making stew today and looking out for the sun by afternoon. Time to do inside projects.
