The one block on this page seemed too plain, so I just added some ribbons stapled along the edge. I think it was what it needed.
Finding some fun spots to take some pics (this one was discovered by TJ).
But, Hubby is back in school and busier than ever. I feel for the guy. Working so hard at his job, his calling, and his difficult school assignments. Can you believe he was up until 3:30am working on his case study? That's commitment!
It also means that I'm taking up more of the slack here at home. I know, poor me, right? Single moms have it much worse, I know. But still, for ME it's a challenge. I miss my family a lot right now. A lot. A LOT lot. I miss having somewhere to go, and laugh, and visit on a Sunday afternoon. I miss those impromptu visits from my sister on a lonely weekday. I miss having someone to watch the kids (for free) so I can have some alone time with the hubby. I miss seeing their familiar, loving faces at church or Stake Conference, or other church activities.
I knew I would miss them - but I thought I'd be over it by now, actually.
Everyone has their challenges, we all know that. If everyone laid their troubles on the table, we'd grab ours and run. Isn't that how it goes? I'm grateful for the trials *I* have - how things could be so much harder. So, I say my "grateful" prayers and keep plugging along :)
Back to schedules, back to life, back to reality. If Autumn as really arrived, why does it still feel like summer outside? Maybe my brain and body are just protesting the inevitable! LOL! I think I'll give myself a boost with a homemade pumpkin spice hot chocolate. Yeah, that sounds like the right medicine right now!
