Sunday, as I dropped my youngest three children off and camp and walked back down the roadway to my vehicle, I started thinking and realized this two weeks is the longest period of time in over 28 years I will be completely without children in my household. Or so I thought until Monday night. On my way out the door in them a.m. I looked at the 2/3 of an apple pie sitting on the table and thought- I really don't want Robert eating all of that with his diabities. I can't eat it due to a wheat allergy. When I got home I saw the glass pie dish sitting on the floor next to the dogs' dishes. I thought "o.k., guess he (Robert) decided to share." Later as we ate, he informed me he had come home to find the pie plate where it presently sat. Our dog Tasha (Husky/Shepard mix) took it in her mouth as she has other dishes and neatly sat it down where she and Boomer could enjoy it. I guess I don't have to worry about Robert's blood sugars with that pie!

Hi Everyone!

Another day, another day of exhaustion. I'm not complaining, just stating a fact. Lots to do in what seems like very little time. My family and I are planning a long weekend get away on Labor day weekend and I just can't wait!

Wow, it has been a while!!!!

Since posting last, I started a new job doing case management. I absolutely LOVE it, and I have finally built up my case load to one that will give me a reasonable wage! I am very excited and very busy. To do this work I needed to fill in with my degrees with about 5 college courses. I am presently setting in course #2...... This is on top of family and the many other things I have going on is a challenge. I am excited though to finally have a job. What I am missing though is my crocheting and knitting. I find both a good stress reliever (along with reading). Until I get the courses done, I don't see much time for these things. We are still working on our house. The roof is on and walls are being built. We are hoping to be in it by winter (only a year plus late :) We began sleeping in it on weekends back in February. Now that I am back, I hope to return more regularly. Hope all is well with those out there in blog land.
