Catching Up

Wow, has it really been that long. My sister was right, I've been too busy living life to write about it!

We've barrelled right along through soccer season with both boys playing. And with only 10 more weeks of school...we have spring fever. I can't wait for summer break.
The relaxed schedule and break from dealing with all the people will be great!

I've already got my summer haircut. Now I need to shed these 20 pounds that I've picked up along the way "fattening up for winter". I don't foresee losing the whole 20 by summer so, I'll take 10.

Anyway, the boys are just trucking along. MC is all signed up for kindergarten and is showing off all of his big kid skills.

JB is finishing up the year with stellar grades and maturing so quickly. The other day, we were talking about his aunts (my sisters), when he realized that they were single and didn't have any kids. He became so concerned about them being lonely because "they don't have anybody". He's insisted on calling them daily, so they won't be lonely. Despite my efforts to convince him otherwise, he just can't imagine them NOT being lonely. He'll understand one day!

The Uninvited Guest

Every week an uninvited guest visits my heart. Usually on Mondays and Wednesdays, which are particularly difficult days in our home because of my hubby's travel schedule.
Mondays, the beginning of an endless amount of responsibilites, are filled with a sense of dread that perpetuates procrastination and outright laziness. By Wednesday, we are all fit to be tied! The uninvited guest creeps in through any available crack and instigates anger, bitterness, hostility, regret, guilt, disappointment and a lot of other destructive emotions.
So, despite any unhappiness about certain situations, I have to make an effort to lock the doors of my heart. I have to protect the hope and faith that assures me that I'll/we'll emerge victorious.

Spring Signs


Spring is definitely my favorite season. I love the feeling of new beginnings. Newborn animals, blooming flowers...the air is fresh and light. Crisp mornings and quiet evenings are blissful.
I guess it doesn't hurt that my birthday is coming up! After all of these years I still get very excited about my big day!
