I tell you.....trying to keep up on a blog can be tiring! .... wait, you may say, you don't keep up on your how could you be tired?! Weeeeeell....the idea of keeping up on my blog is happy?!

Well I have been every so busy! TRYING to keep up on school work has proved a challenge this semester. I am not cut out to study the sciences, especially online! It was fun when I went to BSU and got to dissect aortas and spin blood types....but doing online labs about different types of flies...... ya..less than exhilarating! But it is finals week and it looks like I may just scrape by so I will send up a thank you and open a cold one to celebrate!

Other than school the kids have of course kept me extremely busy with all their activities, play dates and school functions. This is such a fun time for all of us because the older girls are developing their own lives, friends and interests. It is fun for me to get to watch them interact with their friends at school and see all the things they do that remind me so much of myself. Well Lola is going to start Montessori school. With me going to school and being busy all the time she just really needs the stimulation! She is such a intelligent girl and she does not like to sit idle. Lately I just can't provide her the fun filled days that I used to. We took a tour of the school and she LOVED it....we'll see how she does when I'm not there but I think she'll adjust brilliantly! on the other hand...well..I am a big crybaby so.......

My long distance love affair :-) is going well. We have been rocking this long distance thing for over 6 months now and it is quite trying at times...but it is also really nice that I still get butterflies when I go to see him or he comes to see me! The expense of the traveling back and forth is one major downfall as it not being able to see him more often and not having him here to make me smile when I am having a hard day. Still waiting and praying...we'll see what the future holds.

Well thats my bi-yearly update! :-) Still trying to get more diligent in my postings...check back soon! :-D

It's been Awhile!

Well it has been a long time since I posted anything about what is going on with me. I have been beyond busy! I FINALLY have a break from school after a year with no breaks. The reason is because of paper work and it's only about 2 weeks but I am SO excited! I needed it for sure.
On the other side, I got my graduation date! This time next year I will be walking in my cap and gown and can officially call myself a teacher! This is beyond exciting for me. Since I had children so young, I have always been intimidated at the idea of finishing my education and now that I have come so far and actually have a GRADUATION date I know I can do it!!

Another interesting thing in my life is... I have a boyfriend! AHH... LOL! It seems like such a silly term when your older and have kids..boyfriend.. but that's what he is so there you go! :) We have been dating for a few months and so far he is really great! With a liiitle problem that he lives in Washington :-( and i'm not really sure where that problem will take us. I have been praying about it though and have faith that the solution will be shown to me. I just have to have faith and patience...

I recently took a unplanned trip to Alaska to see my Grandma, who has Alzheimer's. It was really great but hard to see her. She is doing better than I expected though and for now that's all I can hope for.. It is amazing as we get older the things that we remember about the people who helped raise us. My grandma was the only one who really ever talked about God or took me to church. I remember sitting on her bed, playing with barbies and listening to her read the Bible. She is my last living grandparent and it is hard to see her struggle...

Well I guess that is enough for now...I will be better and post more later!

Head on over to Becky's blog and check it out!!


P.S. Sorry to all that I am a terrible blogger.. My life has been crazy and I plain just don't have the time!

How do I?

My 8 year old was recently searching for Vanessa Hudgens stuff online. She game across a blog containing some pics and facts about the HSM 1,2,3 star. But on the side bar there was some EXTREMELY vulgar and disturbing images. I caught it before she noticed but I was APPALLED!!! I reported this blog to blogger but want to do more. I monitor my girls web use VERY closely and certainly did not expect this to pop up on a blog about Vanessa Hudgens. I am very concerned! Any suggestions?!


P.S. Should I post a link to this so others can report it too?

My artsy side! :-)

This is a painting that I just finished for my little lolita! It started as a plain white canvas I got for $5 at Walmart and was inspired by the mural at the zoo! I think it turned out pretty good! :-)
