Busy month is almost over!

Oh shoot....I just typed my post and accidently hit the back button, so now I have to redo this...Well, this crazy busy month is almost over! We have yet to spend one weekend at home this past month, so I'm a little ready for another month to come along. Last week we got to go down to Quartz Mountain Resort for a couple's retreat with my church from back home. What a blessing it was for our marriage! Our marriage will never be the same (for the good!). One fun thing was all the wives got their husbands a gift without them knowing and we put them all together, and the husbands had to go pick out which present he thought was his. Of course Luke picked his present out really quick since they put it up on a hanger above all the gifts. (I got him a nice Denver Broncos polo).
This weekend we are busy with Day in the City today and also my best friend/roommate through college is in town with her husband staying with us. Day in the City went well for us; we went to the Oklahoma City Rescue Mission to help out with their "pantry". I put that in quotes because when we got there, it was actually a warehouse that everything was in bulk and we had to rearrange it all and take inventory. So I definitely got my workout for the weekend and will be quite sore all over! The neat thing is that some of the homeless that live there helped us out.
Work has been crazy lately due to one of the girls being sick and then Melody could only work part time due to her pregnancy. And I just got word that she just got put on permanent bed rest until the baby comes because she is already having contractions regularly and starting to dilate. She is not due until the middle of December so please keep her and her baby girl in your prayers. Also please pray that we can find someone to replace her at work because our work is hectic with only 2 of us there. Well, this is getting long, so I will stop here. Hope you all are having a great weekend! Until next time...

Another busy weekend in the Carnagey household!! Friday night I went to a DC4K meeting after work, which I am totally pumped for!! (Luke didn't go since he's sick) Yesterday, I was determined to get Luke out of bed and get him up and around to help him feel better, so we went to eat breakfast/lunch at Jimmy's Egg. The whole time we were there he said that the room was spinning. So we made a quick trip to Wal-Mart for a couple of things and came back home where he took a 2 hour nap. That hour up wore him out. So, I don't think my goal was achieved! Needless to say, I think he is going back to the dr. on Monday. Last night was my dad's birthday party in Yukon which was a lot of fun! And for today, we are going to try to make it to church, depending on how long Luke can last, and then I'm going to Yukon this evening to spend the night with my parents. Tomorrow, I am headed to Lewisville, TX for Tony Hall's funeral. Tony was an amazing Christian man. Growing up, I went to the camp that he was the director for and later was a counselor for him after high school. Through this life here on earth, we all have those that we look up to and know that we can follow in thier footsteps because they imitate Christ (1 Cor. 11:1). Tony was one of those people for me. He lived everyday like it was his last. He was ready for the day that he could spend eternity with his Savior. God bless Tony Hall! I ask that you all pray for his family that he leaves behind. His wife Jill, and 2 little girls who are 7 and 4.
I'm off to get ready. Hope you all have a great Sunday full of God's blessings as we worship Him. Until next time...

Where to start?!

Well, since the last time I posted a lot has happened. Yes we FINALLY made it to Seattle and had a great time with Luke's sister and her family. You can check out our trip in my pictures. We got to play with their Wii (so awesome!), go to the Seattle Aquarium, the beach, the Pike Place Market, be there for the kids first day of school...(Bella's very first day of kindergarten!), and I also got to meet Luke's mom for the first time. It was very eventful and TONS of fun! It was hard to leave. Of course there was excitement on our plane ride home as well when we were half way to Salt Lake City, the flight attendant came over the speaker and asked if there was a Dr. on board to make their presence response. Then if there was any medical personnel or response. So we thought there was someone in first class that was going to die with no help. Luckily that person was fine and we had a relaxing rest of the flight.
This past weekend, Luke and I parted separate ways to join each of our families. I went to Yukon for my mom's side family reunion and to work on scrapbook stuff with my sister. Luke went to Tulsa, where his family from Colorado was visiting and they went to Grand Lake for a day. When we got back on Sunday, we went straight to BK group and had a good time with our friends.
After this was all said and done, Luke started to feel sick yesterday morning, and woke up this morning talking about 2 octaves lower than normal! He went to the Dr. and found out he has a sinus infection, and a bronchial infection that could be strep. So we are taking it easy and I'm trying not to breath much around him!!
This is getting pretty long, so I will close here if you are still reading!!! I probably won't get a chance to write til next week due to another busy weekend! Have a great weekend! Until next time...

Tears and Laughter

Well, I am writing this post in the Dallas/FW airport. it is 5:00 p.m. right now and waiting for our flight at 8:50. Seriously. We are trying to make it to Seattle to go see Luke's sister and her family, but for some reason everything is going against us. We had an hour delay in OKC which they said would make us miss our connecting flight to Seattle, so they took our boarding passes and switched them to another airline which would only put us an hour behind. When we got here, we realized we could have made our original connecting flight, but went to the new gate where they started to board when we arrived. In the middle of boarding, the captain came out and said there was a problem with the plane so we would have to stop boarding and everyone would have to get off the plane. Well, after almost an hour wait, they came back and said our flight was cancelled due to a bird hitting the plane in the previous flight which broke some part of the plane which they could not fix at this time. So all 60 passengers ran off to the ticket counter. When we got to the front of the line, they told us all direct flights for today were full, but we could either go through Oakland or if we ran, we could make a connecting flight to Portland that left in about 10 min. in a different terminal. So, with all of our bags in hand (we did not check any bags in) we took off running. By the time we got to the train stop, there was a sign that said the next train for that terminal would be 8 min. So, with our heads hung low, our backs hurting, we went back to the ticket counter and explained the situation. By this time, I'm in tears. The lady was sooo... sweet and got us first class tickets for a flight going out tonight with food vouchers. To make the day even better, as we went back through security, they looked at our boarding passes and said, "Congratulations, you have been selected to have additional screening, please step to the side." At this point I just started laughing. So, now we are at our gate with a 4 hour delay! The neat thing is that we made some friends with a family who was kind of in the same situation. Well, this is getting really long so I will stop here. I will update later in our trip if I have time. Have a good and safe Labor Day, until next time....
