A quick note………

I have been wanting to get back on and post about the most exciting thing in my life right now, but there simply hasn’t been time!  Between caring for Mama and Daddy, beginning a new/old weightloss program, and an unusually heavy load at work, I haven’t gotten to shout and giggle about my trip – I get to go see my MINNESOTA KIDS!!!  I am beyond excited, and I am leaving today.  Yep, this afternoon I fly out of Houston and head for Minneapolis to see, among other things, this precious face:


Who is usually surrounded by these precious faces:

Bo's Family  
And I can’t wait to get off that plane this evening and hug them, and kiss them, and, as I’ve been telling Arulai for a week now, play with them!

On the serious side, please pray for all of us as I take this trip.  I’m a little nervous about leaving Mama and Daddy, although they are in the greatest of care with Gen, my Dannye Reigh, and my hubby, not to mention the other family that can be called upon in time of need!  Mama is already missing me, even though I would normally be gone to work at this time anyway.  Daddy will be fine, and probably wouldn’t say any different if he weren’t, but he has been a little cranky lately, and may not be feeling well.  And of course, Bill, Dan, and Gen need prayers because of the extra stuff added to their already full schedules!  They all told me to go and have a good time, and don’t worry about the folks while I’m gone.  I’m going to try – but again, please pray that I will trust the Lord, and trust my family!

BTW, I recently began a weightloss program, Quick Weight Loss, and am already seeing results.  I knew I would because about 9 years ago I lost 65 pounds using the program.  I kept it off for 5 years, but these last few years have been less than successful – although my feeble attempts at doing the program alone allowed me to lose 20 pounds here and there for weddings and stuff, I’ve put all of it back on.  So, I’m back with the program, which for me is a great one, and I’ve lost 6 pounds and 4 inches in my first 10 days.  Emily helped me put a ticker on this site, so I’m going to try tracking my losses as an added incentive.  I’m a little concerned about this little vacation, but Nathanael and Emily want me to succeed as much as I do, so I know they will help me any way they can.

Well, I need to tie up the loose ends here at work so I can start the move toward the airport!

God bless your Day!!



About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

    All is well, and Mom isn’t nervous anymore.  She is still a little “off” but not upset or worried.  Dad is doing ok, too and has mentioned several times that he is glad you were able to go see AJ and Bub and Em.  Enjoy your time away, and really be AWAY!   Love you, Gen
