Here I am!!!

Hello all,
I have not been ignoring you, it's been very, very, very busy the last few weeks. I've barely had time to do some of my own work here at the second homestead (work) while I've been "on assignment". That just sounds better than "doing something stupid that no one is going to look at" doesn't it? So, here's a rundown of my month, depressed at the beginning of the month (which I wrote about), yes I'm better, thank you for asking. The mood picked up a little and then we lost a young man in our ward to a serious illness which saddened me greatly and made me contemplate the whole life/death issue for a while. What a blessing it is know that this special young man is in a better place where there is no pain and he can run and swim and do things that he was never able to do on this earth. His parents are an example of faith in Heavenly Father's plan that they can laugh and talk about him and know that they will see him again.

We've had science projects and algebra problems and doggie issues (oh my!). Let's just say this about the latter, I've never had a girl dog and never expected to find myself and my DH on a date night buying doggie diapers. I'll leave it at that. I try to erase traumatic experiences from my mind. Jared has been sick but is on the mend, I've been sick (again) but also on the mend. Kiersten is working on another book and Mike is busily putting together our new heating and a/c unit (pays to know someone in the business-we're getting labor for free!).

Other than that, it's been a regular month.

Peace and love y'all!

You know, I just have to laugh at the idea of you and Mike and doggie diapers. This is why the female doggie I owned was fixed :) Gives you a little incentive for pet population control, dunnit?

Is Kiersten going to let us read her first book?

Sally will be fixed as soon as possible. We honestly thought we would have a few more months, but alas, no.

As for the first book, I'm not sure. I haven't even read it.

I didn't even know there was any such thing as doggie diapers. I just quit asking to read Kiersten's stuff. I figure that when she is ready to be exposed, she will let us know.

Too funny about your hot date at the pet supply store! It was so good to see your DH at our ward conference yesterday, I just love him!

Connie said...

Where should I start??? Glad you are feeling better. ((((hugs))) I figured the internet type wouldn't traumatize you as much :)
Yep, my neighbor's dog had on a diaper the other just looks strange...better than the alternative.

As usual, you're able to see all the good stuff in your life. Even in the tragedy you mentioned, there's still an optimistic, hopeful "aura" (is that the right word??) in your blog?
