We are up and running. I'm not being really good at listening to my oncologist when he told me to relax this summer. I have my hands in several different areas. I started housecleaning. I did my girls room on Thursday. I am hoping to get two rooms knocked out this week. Or at least Ty's room and the hallway although the hall shouldn't take a lot of time.

I also am trying to work on the library stuff. I had load of books in my basement that were either bought or donated. It took a couple of days to get through 4 bags. This includes placing a pocket and card in each book, labeling the spine and putting the info in the computer. I still have about 4 more boxes in the basement....at least. After that I wish to tackle the actual library.

Meanwhile the kids have places to go and people to see. Lexi will be going to my inlaw's Bible School this week. On Sunday Ty goes to camp and on Wednesday morning Nicole heads to Creation. After July 4 Lexi heads to summer school and summer camp and then Nicole goes to Kentucky.....comes home after a week and heads to camp as a counselor in training for 2 weeks. Then she has band camp for two weeks..... and in between that we have doctor's and dental appointments.

Maybe I should ask my oncologist to define "relax". LOL

Remembering Shirley

I had befriended Shirley last year when she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer shortly after I was. Unfortunately hers recurred and she lost her battle with the disease last week. My husband and I attended her funeral on Monday. She was 71. You will be missed, Shirley!


Only a few more days until school is out for the summer. I have so many things I want to get done and I hope I will have time to do it all. I want to houseclean really well and work on library stuff as well. Nicole will be away through most of the summer and Lexi and Tyler both have places to be as well. I feel tired thinking about it.
