Absence makes the heart grow fonder...

they say. In case you have noticed, I have been in a blogging funk lately. Alot has been going on here. We have been going none stop since the beginning of May.

*Our master shower has been out of commission for OVER a year and we finally got the whole bathroom done. It was being completed 2 days before, while we were out of town for 4 days, and 2 days after our trip.
We still have to paint, seal the tile, add switchplates, towel bars, and clean it up, but I am happy.

*While we were on our mini-vacation, my fil, went into the hospital with a very large blood clot in his lung and we learned that his lung cancer has come back very aggressively. It was really hard to enjoy our trip with this news, but we made it through. Can you guess where we went?

*Charles' new job starts Monday...such an amazing job opportunity, but I am nervous for him. It is going to be difficult for him to concentrate while his father is having hospice care at home. My heart is aching for him. Losing a loved one is so, so hard.

*On top of all this craziness, the kids are out of school next week and that means lots of celebrating...kindergarten graduation & party, Michael's pre-school pajama party, I need to make teacher gifts and there is a last minute field trip.

*Today, my fil's sister and niece are arriving to visit with him and tomorrow our good friends, the Harty's, are coming to town. Their daughter is graduating from the UofA, so I have to find a free moment to go see them.

It just seems like I am on major overdrive right now. I will try to blog when I can, but it probably will be pretty random. Or I might blog more than before, because it is fun to take your mind off of things and escape via bloggin.

til next time.

Glad to see you back. Yeah for your bathroom. Sorry to hear the news about your fil. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
