And...The Rotten Blogger Award Goes To........ME

I have been a horrible blogger...I know. I apologize. It's not like I haven't had anything to say.........I just haven't felt like saying it. There have been SO many things going on that I'm not even sure where to start. However, I do know that if I don't start now, I may never start again. So, let me start with this:

I am WELL! Finally. It was a very long haul. I did not bounce back the way I thought/expected/hoped I would. I had a not-so-nice reaction to my steroids that left me in a lot of pain and not able to do much at a time when I really needed to be doing many things. To say it was frustrating is an understatement. It wasn't until mid-April that I really felt good. Being down for almost two months is just not me! I am trusting that God knew what He was doing:)

I am down to my last week of work. I can't believe it! I remember telling my boss in early February that I would be leaving May 1st. I really thought the time was dragging along, but now that it's actually my last week....I think it went pretty fast. I am anxious to end my time here and begin this new chapter in my life. I won't start school until August (if I am accepted....still waiting to hear) so I plan on spending some quality time with my girls and my son this summer. We are really behind on our homeschooling, so it looks like the majority of our summer will be spent doing that. What a blessing!

There are so many little details I am going to spare you from. Like the fact that we have had 2 garage sales, I am still in between homes as we wait for the attic in my parents house to be finished, I have approximately 4 outfits that I can access right now, and I can't find anything. Each of those sentences could be an entire blog post. I won't even go there.

Thank you for checking in with me and I'm sorry I haven't been good at keeping you updated. I hope to blog more now that things are settling down. OK....things aren't really settling down, but I DO hope to blog more:)

Boy do I understand the living in two houses senerio. That happened to us when we moved into this house. I am glad to hear from you and I was glad to see you at the baptism. We should get together for lunch sometime. I will pray that everything will be caught up and you will have a great summer with your kids. Love ya, Tanya

Heather, so glad to see your post. Things will get better, with you home we can get a lot of the things done to make room for our new adventure. I have never had flowers in my attic before. I love having you and the girls here and it will be wonderful when Josh gets home for the summer. Looking forward to our weekend. Love you to the Moon and Back

So glad to see you are back. Be strong and courageous in your next season of life. God will lead the way and you are a woman of God so you know He will guide you. Can't wait to read more of your Ramblings.
You have been missed.
Love, Susan

Heather I hope all is going in the direction God chooses for you. If you get the worst blogger award - I get the runner up... I've been busy with the new baby and homeschooling the older kids and haven't taken much time for the computer.

I'm looking forward to reading your posts as they come and as I can get here :)
