When the moon hits your eye... a big pizza pie, that's amore...

Summer is on full bore, hot, hot, hot! Lexy and I were just talking about how summer is the quintessential American season because all the things that say 'American' are so much a part of summer: baseball, hot dogs (I know, they aren't really American), jumping off a dock into water, parades, lemonade, family reunions, camping...all so American and all so much a part of summer!

Here is what I love about summer:
long hours of daylight
the cool evening hours
ice water
my kids' laughter
crickets chirping
s'mores by a campfire
Fourth of July
no school
sleeping in
BYUI education week

did I mention camping? Especially with my sisters on the fly! So looking forward to Sisters in Sisters in August!

Seeing the Forest for the Trees...

Well yesterday seemed a bit 'poor me', sorry about that. I can see the forest inspite of the trees. I know there are good things waiting out there, that things will work out. I just have to trust in 'the plan' for my life. Is this a mid life thing cause I'm way too old for that twenties angst!
I have been enjoying the outings in my trailer the last couple of weekends. Mother/daughter this last weekend was fun. I enjoyed hanging out with the femme fatales in the family, sitting by the fire, looking at the stars in the clear summer sky, making 'smores...It was nice to get out and enjoy nature with my creations!

Another year under my belt

Well, I wonder if any of you are still checking in to see what's up? I admit, I've been neglectful. I've been on the road a lot, back and forth between work and moving out of the house. Finally got all moved out, but then it's still back and forth to see the kids on weekends. I can't say I am loving my life right now. I don't like being in transit all the time, and I don't like not being a part of the kids' lives every day. I missed the last days of school, all of Max's baseball games so far, Zoey getting her driver's license...All of my stuff is in storage. Waaaaaa. Listen to me whine.
I recently "celebrated" my birthday. The kids were here and that was fun. They made me dinner and cake. The candles were a bit ridiculous. After a certain age one candle as a token should be sufficient. I'm trying to be hopeful and look forward. I have a job that I enjoy in an area I like with new faces and places. Still, it all seems all so unsettled.
Well, it's not being a very cheerful, yea life, kind of entry. I do have much to be thankful for, and am thankful. I just need to get things together and feel like I have a home and family again. Stay tuned.
