I must say that I am disappointed. I was hoping that when I turned out the lights on Friday night that I would glow in the dark.
I tried again on Saturday. Nothing.
I just feel nauseous and want to toss my cookies. (It would be awesome if I could even eat cookies right now.)
As a matter of fact, I am surprised at myself. I am surprised that I am sharing this much info with you. I usually only share this much with my sisters.
I have learned through my own experiences to keep things to myself otherwise I might be hurt. I was tired of being hurt/let down/pushed aside/over looked by others. So, I clammed up. Zipped it. Shut it. Shut down.
I am entering a new phase of my life. I think I am maturing....WEIRD!
I need to mature in some areas. OK, I need to mature in A LOT of areas. Baby steps.
The area that I am maturing in the most right now is choosing to stop playing games. I'm getting off the Merry Go Round of life. Being on that Merry Go Round is nauseating. Besides it gets me nowhere. And frankly I don't have enough Zip Lock bags (that's for you NHC) to catch all the aftermath.
Change isn't easy. It isn't easy on me or the people around me but it is necessary.
I realize now that it is the good people around me that make me shine, not any meds I may have to take.
In the meantime, as long as I stock up on the zip lock bags, I should be just fine!
This is our family right now. We have one son who is in Madagascar serving a mission. He has 5 months left. Our other son pictured here is a senior. Our time with him is winding down. This blog is for these men in my life. I love them with all of my heart! They mean more to me than words can describe....sometimes I am speechless (in a bad way too). That is all part of life. At the end of the day we love each other for each other, good, bad and not so pretty!
I am the mother of two awesome boys! One has recently returned from a mission for our church in Madagascar. Soon to be a Freshman in college.
The other is a Freshman in college and will be venturing out on a mission in the next year.
They have both brought me a lot of happiness and made me laugh! I am so blessed to have them in my life! They have had to go through things in life that some would feel are not fair, but they have not complained. They go through life with a smile on their face. They are a great example to me.
I am also the wife of an amazing man!!! Seriously! He does it all! He complains even less than my boys!!! I could not ask for a better companion than him. He is a great example to his sons. He works hard all week long, comes home and begins his work on our home and then continues to serve at our church. Yet, I do not feel neglected. He is there when I need him. He brings me lunch every day at work, he helps out at home, he loves me for me....what more can a woman ask for? Yep, I got him!!!
Can he be serious? Nope!
Our freshman....in college.
The Hubby (and his pal)
His only flaw....he doesn't know how to smile...hahahaha
OUR FAVORITE THINGS......
In the summer we LOVE to go to Lake Powell with my sister and her family. We have a blast there! There is never a dull moment whether it be from the kids, storms, bats or giant mice. We are constantly entertained by something or someone! Here are a few of my favorite memories.....
The Balloon Launcher
Many items were launched in 2005. Grapes, rotten tomatoes, live fireworks. ( I was the target for the fireworks.)
It was higher than it looked, especially for a scaredy cat like me. And by the way, I told Drew I was jumping, but didn't. He did!
My favorite place to be on a hot day! With one of my favorite nephews! (When he's in a good mood that is!)
A fun past time...watching others get their butt kicked on the molecule! Oh yeah!!!
Yep...the ride of my life....it hurt!
Bracing for the Storm
B-I-L and Hubby being pelted by the rain. The toys had to be secured!
The Many Faces of Hubby
Ok...he doesn't have many faces, in fact it's like pulling teeth to get a real smile out of him, so this makes this shot great!
