Summer Plans?

So this summer we are not going on vacation for the first time since like 1990. Mom and I started going away to the beach in 1990 and have done it every year since except for the year we went to Disney. It’s going to be so strange and very sad. No vacation time for me so I’ll be working all summer. Josh will be going to Daycare which is sort of like day camp as they go on field trips and do fun stuff and Jake will be at home for the most part. He is going away to overnight Boys Camp for a week and I’m a bit freaked about that but I know he will love it. Baseball and Soccer end June 20th and after that at least my weekends will be free and maybe we can do a weekend trip to the beach or something. It’s going to be a very boring summer for me!

What are your plans for the summer, let me live vicariously through you?

I Paper Scrapped

On Mother’s Day we decided instead of going out and spending a ton of money on dinner that we would hang out at home and have Lobster and Steak. After going out to get my annual hanging plants we get every Mother’s Day Mom and I headed off to Michaels and AC Moore since the LSS was closed and got some scrapping stuff. I really didn’t need much and Mom just picked up some Disney stuff since she wanted to work on some photos from our trip. I got one two page layout and another page done in the short time we scrapped. We then had a fabulous dinner all cooked and cleaned up by Michael and the boys and it was a great day. Here are the pages I got done:

The single page was about all the wild animals we saw at the park that weren’t caged:

And the two pager is another sea world page:

I hope to find some more scrappy time soon, I forget how much I miss it until I do it again.

May Musings

Can you even believe it’s the 22nd of May and this weekend is Memorial Day weekend? Where the heck did the time go? It seems like we just celebrated the new year and now we are almost half way through it?  May has been a busy month with soccer and baseball twice a week, as well as Physical Therapy which I just finished up. Then there was Mother’s Day and of course some Orthodontist appointments and teeth cleaning for good measure! I also got bit by a deer tick and we thought the head was still in my belly button so had to go to the doc and get a dose of Doxicycline (sp) to hopefully prevent Lyme Disease. And now I get the joy of watching for symptoms for the next year! Work has been very busy too so I can kind of understand why the time has just flew on by. I’d like for it to slow down now though so I can enjoy the summer!

Have a great long weekend and remember to say a word of thanks and prayer to all the veteran’s and soldiers out there!

Tragedy Strikes Close to Home

A good friend of Jake’s family lost their home yesterday to a fire. It’s unknown at this time how the fire happened but thankfully the whole family including the dog were not at home when it happened so no one was hurt. This family has lost everything, the home is a complete loss and they only have their car and the clothes on their backs. I am hoping my town rallies together to do something for this family of 6 as they are known well in this community. I am so heartbroken for them and asking if you all could just send them some prayers and positive thoughts.

Thanks so much!

A Mother's Day Poem

for me from my sweet 10 year old boy. I almost bawled like a baby but I figured it would make him think I didn't like it! LOL!

My mother is a good cook.
She is also nice and smart.
But when she is a parent,
She always does her part!

She works a lot and has a job.
It's secret though and I can't say more,
But it is enough
To get food in our door!

She likes to scrapbook,
And shes good with art.
She uses our pictures,
To get her pages a start.

She likes to keep everything,
All neat and tidy.
She cleans inside,
So our house looks shiny!

I know shes not always happy,
About what I do.
But I sill love her
And she loves me too!

Happy Mother's Day
Love Josh
