Just so you know..

The comments on that previous post (the one with 18 comments) have now been hidden from the public and no one else can comment on that post. If you didn't want those comments to be public, then they shouldn't have been posted on a public blog... but I decided that this time I will be nice and make them private so everyone might be happy.

Also, since this issue was made public on my blog, I feel that it would be best to respond publicly. First, Vince has never said that my dad is not my dad anymore. Second, I never said that I have to get Vince's permission to call my parents.

I want everyone to know that Vince is NOT controlling and he is a wonderful husband. I love him and it hurts me when people lie about him.

Out of respect, I'm leaving out the names of those who I'm talking to in this blog. If you want to comment on this post, please make sure that whatever you say is something you wouldn't mind saying in public. I will not be deleting or hiding any comments on this blog post.

If you feel the need to respond in a way that shouldn't be posted publicly, then please send your comments to vinsulation117@gmail.com.

It's COLD outside!

BRRR! The wind's whistling out there, and there's a little bit of snow on the ground. I have no idea what the temperature is, but I'm soooo not used to this weather!

Not good news

I woke up this morning and I noticed that Vince was still up, later than usual. I could just tell something was bothering him... so I asked him about it, and he told me that all the temps at his job are going to be laid off as of January 1st. (this means this is his last week, because of Christmas/New Years vacation.. which is unpaid anyway)

I was hoping to apply for a part-time job at H&R Block starting in January, but since I don't know what's going to happen with Vince's job situation and I don't know what kind of schedule he'll have when he does get a job, I can't really start a new job like that. I just hope I don't get all stressed out like I did last time he was unemployed...

Guess I just had to vent. I hope the rest of you have a nice day. :-)

So, what do you think?

It's that time of the year again. People are decorating their houses and buying gifts and singing Christmas songs because December 25th is almost here. I'm sure you've already received a few Christmas cards from family and friends, maybe even some gifts already. This is also that time of the year when a few Christians feel the need to point out the blasphemousness of the whole Christmas holiday.

I just read in an email that "Christmas" means "the death of Christ", so in essence, by celebrating Christmas you are celebrating the death of Christ, making it something light and cheerful when it isn't something to be joked about. Also, these emails include information about the pagan origins of the Christmas tree, the holly, mistletoe, etc. Basically, if you participate in these things, you're participating in "witchcraft", according to these emails.

Now I'm not really big into the whole crazy Christmas thing. I just enjoy giving gifts and spending time with family and having a nice Christmas dinner. I think the decorations are beautiful and I don't think of the goddess Diana's menstrual cycle when I look at holly (seriously, that's what the ancient meaning of it is), or the reproductive substance (you know what I mean) of the "sun god" when I see mistletoe. I don't put them up, but I'm not going to preach at someone who does. I can understand the people that don't put up Christmas trees because of Jeremiah 10, though I don't believe that a Christmas tree fits into Jeremiah 10 unless you're worshipping it (and I don't feel comfortable with the song "O Christmas Tree" for that reason).

But seriously, there are two times of the year when lost religious people will come to church and talk about Christ. Easter and Christmas. Both holidays can be celebrated in a pagan way or a Christian way.

So... I think we should have fun this Christmas. Decorate your house if you feel like it, make some gingerbread cookies, wrap some gifts for your family with pretty wrapping paper and bows, and make sure to glorify God that day (as with any day). We can be thankful for the religious freedoms that we still have, and be thankful for all the blessings God has given us in 2008.

It's up to you. You can skip this holiday and write it off as "witchcraft", or you can make it a special God-honoring time with your family. What do you think? :)

Update time!

Yeah, I'm finally updating my blog again! :)

So December has been quite a busy month. I've been helping my mother-in-law with her candy business occasionally, and I've been doing a lot of house-work, plus Vince's job has caused our schedule to get all wacky so I'm hardly online at the time when all of my friends are on... so I spend less time talking to friends online and more time doing other things.

So, to make up for the lack of social interaction online, we're actually planning to have real life friends over at our house more often! Last night we had all of Vince's siblings over with a few other friends for supper. We made hamburgers and homemade french fries and then watched movies, and it was so much fun! Earlier in the day, Jillian and Audrey (my sister-in-laws) helped me clean and re-organize my whole kitchen. They just loved doing it. It was nice waking up this morning to a spotless kitchen. :-)

In the blog world, I have been reading everyone's blogs, I just haven't always kept up on commenting on them. Also, Vince has been updating his Word of a King blog once in a while with some pretty good stuff. I think you'll like it. :-)

We're also planning a trip to Missouri for Christmas this year. We're hopefully going to be able to go down there and spend the holiday with his grandparents. :-)

Thanks all for now....

So funny

Have you ever created a Facebook group and then forgot you created it? That just happened to me! lol

I think I started the group AV1611 Bible Believers back in February 2007 (that's when the earliest wall post is), and then I just saw the link to the group through another group I'm on, and I was just going to see if it was active... and see who created it (remember, I forgot it was me). So you can imagine how funny it was when I saw my name as the "creator".... hehehe.

In other funny news: Someone thought I was Vince's little sister yesterday (because I supposedly don't look old enough to be his wife). I'm only 4 months younger than him!!!
