J-Day 5, 6

Wow, unless you really keep on stuff like this, time just moves way too quickly.. Memorial day weekend brought a couple of goals  to a close, we started the reno on the living room, scrapped all the popcorn off ceiling, sanded the faux wood beams down to re-stain, took cabinet that blocked view from living to kitchen out and definitely changed the the flow of the room. The Fung Shei is strong in this area now or whatever the kids are calling it now..

We took 6 and 2 to the cemetery to lay flowers at the graves of their Great Grandfather Rollie and to their aunt Whitney, it is hard to imagine that 10 years have passed since that awful day when the news of her accidental death devastated our families. We do know in our hearts, she kissed the foreheads of our sons before God gave them to us, so we know she is always there watching. It’s faith like this that keeps the threads that weave our family together strong.

We have ducklings (well technically they’re still in eggs, but still…) the drake laid her 9 eggs under our huge Peonies bush and has been keeping them warm, hope they all survive, it will be fun to see them walking out of our yard into the lake, and it will be a great teaching moment for 6.

My mom is soon to be on her way driving across country with her sister headed to Nebraska, I think this is probably the last time they’ll make that drive, I’m not really comfortable with them driving such long distances. She’ll stay a couple of days and then head back to Arizona. We don’t get to spend much time with them as they live so far away and it costs way too much to fly there.. Maybe a train ride to Phoenix would be a fun trip.. have to check that out..

Goals this week: Get Part D plan written for client and apply at State Farm

Narrate another chapter in this long novel , and promote the current crop of my audio books on social media.
