End of May............

Nicole in DC

Nicole accepting an award for Best Supporting Actress

Tyler at recent concert. Unfortunately he sat too far in the back so I couldn't get a pic of him playing

Here is a recent trip to the mountains the kids and I took with my parents. I am hoping the link works to take you to a slide show. My mom broke her hand shortly after we got there.

April Showers Bring Mayflowers but what do May showers bring?

To avoid swine flu, don't do this!

Was at a local Market on Saturday. Came out to discover somebody literally parked on my back bumper. I pulled up a little to see if they damaged my bumper. When I turned around to look at their car I burst out laughing. Their front plate said "God is my pilot". So I left a note that said, "If God is your Pilot can you please ask Him to stop before he hits my car next time? :)"

I just discovered Nicole (15) rewashed my clean laundry. As I was explaining to her how I always pile the dirty on the floor and put the clean in the basket she smiled and said, "Well, at least you don't have any hair to pull out." As I marched toward her menacingly she flew up the steps screaming, "Not my hair!"

I have a prayer request. I have been asked not to share what it is yet before more is known but I just ask that you pray for it as an unnamed request until I am allowed to share more.

On Mother's Day my family gave me flowers and cards. Nicole handed me a small bottle of defrizz shampoo and slyly said she takes after me.

Remembering Wendy

I have known Wendy for several years. She was from Australia and I met her on Christian Women's boards. Before I was diagnosed she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Unfortunately hers could not be contained and she passed on early yesterday morning surrounded by friends and family.

Between returning to work and sports, it's been pretty busy. Tyler played two soccer games on Saturday for two different teams. He plays regularly on one and subs for the other. In fact the two teams work together to sub for each other. Unfortunately Tyler's flag football game and Lexi's soccer game on Sunday got rained out.

On Friday a dump truck backed into a pole near our house putting the entire town out of electric. We were scrambling to feed the kids at school. We could not run the dishwasher until the power finally returned and the boiler was adjusted. I never walked out of the school until after 4:00. Unfortunately I think the power surge from the electric coming back on caused an electrical short in our oven so we have somebody coming out tomorrow to look at that. Of course it is two months past warranty. (rolling eyes)

Gonna include some photos. Enjoy!
