I'm Still Here

OK I've survived another week. I really thought I needed something and a few times asked for some tranquilizers but no one obliged me. That's ok. I got thru the week hardcore just like I deliver babies, no drugs. You learn a helluva lot more. . .
Talking to my mom this morning, dad is really loosing his little mind and is very forgetful. It's weird to think of that happening to your parent's. Mom is as spry as anyone in her path. We joke because it's her that's pulling me and my sis down the mall hallways. She outdoes us. I'm homesick this time of year. Always have been since living here. Not that I don't like being here, but I just miss shopping and baking with those girls and doing a fun craft together. I love them.
Stay tuned for some fun times ahead with TG. Everyone will be home on Wednesday and it will be great. :D

Just a Moment

I've decided that we are put on this earth to learn from our experiences and though we may not like what is put in front of us it is up to us to decipher how we handle our challenges. Being a woman of faith and relying on the Lord is sometimes all we have. Sometimes what I want to do (throw a fit, rant, rave, swear, carry on crying... and I've already done this) is not always the best choice... but I can tell you it does make you feel better :)
People need to understand that we ALL have a past and we ALL have a future. Have you heard of the saying "People that live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones?" What that means is, you should not criticize other people for having the same faults that you yourself have. People really need to take a look at themselves or their own families before they speak. Because when you talk of other's and it comes back around, it's hurtful. But we are here is learn patience, longsuffering, kindness, turn the other cheek. Those are the virtues I'm working on today. They're tough but they're there for a reason. I have to believe that. That's why I'm here on this earth. If other's choose not to learn those virtues, they're loss my gain. I have to believe that.

The Holidays Are Approaching

Usually living here in Idaho this time of year it's very cold. But this past week has been rather mild. Up to 68 degrees or more. Tonite when I got home from work it was very warm and mild outside. Paul and I were reminiscing about these types of evenings back in SLO town. It totally reminds us of those fall evenings when it gets dark early and the air is still warm and you can smell the salt air. Those nights are cool. Here the air is different. Sometimes you get a whiff of the stagnant water from the river or a dairy from up the road. LOL :D But either way we're in the mood for the holidays. We're planning our TG dinner and wondering if we need to make a road trip somewhere after Christmas.
Everyone will be home this weekend so we have planned to have a family picture taken. You know how those go! I told Emily to be prepared for some murmuring. Should be interesting. Stay tuned. . .

Look for This Movie Soon

I bet that this will be one of the best movies that you can take your families to for the holiday season. Take a look and decide for yourselves. I can't wait.

Brooke Graduated!

Paul and I went to Boise this weekend to see Brooke speak at her graduation ceremony. She graduated from Apollo College in Massage Therapy. There were 185 students from all age groups that graduated in all different fields. She did a great job! We love our Brooke. We finally met her dad for the first time in 4 years. I'm sure he thought we were a bunch! We also enjoyed watching Lindsey, Brooke's twin graduate in dental hygiene. Congrads girls! We love you. :)
