It has been FOREVER since my last blog! I can't even believe it! So much has happened and I've had so little time, I am on day number 10 of work without a day off - just tomorrow to go, then I get a three day weekend. Yea! We sent Brinnlee off to Dry Gulch on Sunday the 20th - Erich, Noah and I followed the bus up so we could see where she'd be, etc. It was awesome, Erich got to help out the boys with their bunks, unpacking and stuff and I got to help the girls. It was really something to see. Noah wasn't staying - and was disappointed - but we got to have dinner in the cafeteria, and he got to be with Erich while he helped the guys in their bunks, and we stayed for chapel that night. We also got the take a golf cart and check out the grounds, we saw the waterslides, the stables and the go cart tracks. There are also game rooms, the general store, and a theatre - it really is like its own little town. We really enjoyed ourselves, but we all missed Brinnlee terribly while she was gone. It was so good to pick her up on Thursday and to hear what a great time she had. I know she's already looking forward to next year, and I have a whole year to get used to the idea that Noah will be going - and a whole year to prepare his dad for it, too!

Its been a whole week since my last blog. Has anything happened since then? Its been an interesting week, thats for sure. We had a busy weekend, as usual. Had a meeting about changes being made in Kids Church - exciting, but alot of changes to remember. Hope everything works out. Its all trial and error. We shall see.
We had a get-together with our homeschool group last night at the water park, everybody had an absolute blast. It isn't often that we get whole families together like that. I think the moms and dads were playing as hard as the kids! Well, I'm now into the work week - again! Should be a good one though, had a visit from our DM today, and it was great, so (deep sigh!) we can rest easy for awhile that things are all going well. Getting ready to dig in to Brinnlee's camp "stuff", laying out clothes, shoes, gear, etc. I'm not really looking forward to this, but she leaves Sunday, and I hesitate to wait any longer to make sure she has everything we think she'll need. Should be a learning experience.

Well, I made it - to work on time, through the day, home early - I made it!
We had our parent meeting tonight at church about Camp Dry Gulch. It looks totally awesome, I'm bummed that I don't get to go. I am excited for Brinnlee, but am also totally dreading her being gone for 4 days. Noah is old enough this year, but there just wasn't any way I could see letting him go - I mean, this is the first year we're letting Brinn go. We got all the important info now and she's ready to pack up - tonight! - even though they don't leave for ten more days. Well, lots to look forward to in the next couple of weeks, not the least of which is my 2 days off - I just have to get through Thursday, and YEAH!

This week at work we are having a floor move. New displays on the walls, moving all the fixtures on the floor, etc. Anyhow, we don't usually get markdowns those weeks, but this week - yep, markdowns. I get to go in to work at 7:00 in the morning. Getting off earlier is good, but going in that early, not sure if I'm crazy about that idea. I am on day number seven, have two more days to go before getting two days off. I like two days off in a row, but working nine in a row to get it isn't fun. My kids are spending the night with their nana because I have to work early, and Erich has started Summer II. It is nice and quiet around here tonight, I am enjoying it. Well, I feel like I'm rambling, so I'm gone for now.

I found myself back at work today. Wow, is it hard to go back after several days off! Sometimes when I am home, I'm looking around at all the things that need to be done, but just sit around enjoying my family. I guess I should make better use of that time, but with me working, and Erich in school, times when the four of us are all together seem to be too far between. Anyway, while I am working, when things slow down sometimes, I think of all the things I need to be doing at home. I guess thats just the way it goes! Anyway, long weekend is over, I guess I'm back to reality - whatever that is.
