its just around the corner

well, the season is drawing near that christmas music will be in all the stores, children will be making wish lists, and adults will be deciding what their new years resolutions will be. It is also a time of reflection for us as we look back on the past years losses, accomplishments, milestones and everything else. What an incredible year so far for the Sharp family here in Dothan! We began the couponing 'thing' this year and saved thousands, Chip grew leaps in bounds both physically and mentally, we will celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary in a month and a half and our marriage in this 6th year has been the best yet! what about you?

this weekend, we went shopping and got tons accomplished. Chip was getting over bronchitis (we went on and got that out of the way early this year with the weather change, apparently :-P) and so no outside fun for us on this beautiful weekend, but we got lots done. We did some major grocery shopping where we were very successful and we also did some christmas shopping! We got some great deals and even had coupons for the toys for all the 'littles' in the family. we saved over 50% average on all of our weekend shopping and what a nice feeling! Chip is feeling better, finally, and he doesn't sound like he has smoked for 40+ years anymore and so we are on the mend and grateful for what we have! Hope that this finds you grateful and doing well! Loving you all and missing you all even more!

how 4 weeks flies!

Wow i can't believe it has been about 4 weeks since i have written a blog! It goes to show you that when you are keeping the roads hot, the time just flies by as you are trying to survive the unending piles of laundry, packing and unpacking, etc. In the last four weeks we have had the Dystance4Dystonia 5k, gone to Birmingham for a birthday party, Mississippi for a birthday party, cleaned out our garage, did a huge workday at the church and got lots done, and on and on and on! We have had a great four weeks, though. Chaos and all, it has been awesome! Tony got As in his classes, we raised over $13,000 for Dystonia research, spent great time with both sides of the family and have had some amazing things happening at church! Will load pictures of it all soon and hope you all enjoy them!
