Mini Sabatical

Hello Everyone,

You have probably been wondering were I am. I promised you pictures and all. Well life doesn't always go with your plan. I will tell you I had been taking my days off to work in the garden that I haven't been able to enjoy in days maybe even weeks. I planted 3 rose bushes, black eyed daisies, and dianthus my favorite. I purchased new patio furniture and beautiful hibiscus trees for the patio. I have two birds nest one in each one that have the most beautiful blue eggs in them. We are excited to see them when they arrive.

Just when you think you are overwhelmed it comes crashing and it is almost to late to get control. That has been the last two weeks. My neighbors best friends son was killed in a car accident at the age of 16. Talk about a ton of bricks on the brain. My mother in laws Alzheimer's is rapidly getting worse. I was marrying Frankey the other day. Who the heck is Franky? I got a bad stomach virus. Puked everywhere Preschool graduation (loved it) 1st grade teacher moving (so sad we will miss her), high school graduation parties(lots of fun). My business partner retired(going to miss her greatly). I am expected to work 7 days a week until further notice. Selling homes like crazy but no time for me and the kids. I just want to go to the pool. Fighting the school board over bogus issues regarding my upcoming kindergartner. They don't want her at the same school as the boys. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Kimberly stated about two weeks ago you better get control. That is the best thing about a best friend. THEY JUST KNOW. Especially when I snap over the smell of the detergent that was used to wash my clothes you know that something can't be right.

SO you all wanted me back but maybe not in this state. I am usually not a very emotional gal but lately I can cry at anything. I am not complaining and don't want sympathy but you have never met the overdone LuLu. My dad always told me you only cry when you are over tired and guess what I am way over tired.

Looking forward to summer. Today was the last day of school for us and we are excited about vacation.

I have missed you all to0. I will be joing Kimberly for the summer bible study to do something for me.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

To all my bloggy friends that are mothers. We are all mothers according to our lord. May you be blessed with lots of love.
I would like to share the Franciscan Prayer for Mothers

Holy God, Creator of all life, You compare Your love for Your people to the love a mother for her children. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, abundantly bless my own dear mother.

She taught me how to stand and to walk; Give her now the strength of Your Spirit. She showed me how to speak and to pray; Surround her now with the sound of Your voice. She nurtured me and loved me into life; Tenderly touch her now with Your joy and peace.

Grant her the serenity and rich fulfillment of a job well done, a life well lived. Forgive all her mistakes and frustrations. Reward all her sacrifices and self-giving. May she, who carried life in her womb, be gently welcomed into Your Divine Embrace, to rejoice for all eternity with everyone she loved and cared for.


Have a blessed day!

Last night Bubba and I were sitting on the patio with a cool breeze passing. When number 2 came out he is so cute. He is going to be seven this year. He crawled up in my lap and fell asleep so I thought. Bubba and I kept talking, trying to figure out what we were going to do this weekend. I was telling him lets have a low key weekend the house needs tlc and I am exhausted. When this little head pops up and says NO mommy. I want to go over to Ms. Kimberley's. We started laughing.

I told him that we would see how things went. He was not very happy with that answer.

Don't you just love getting snuggles. He was so sweet. He was also listening to every word that I said. I remember when he was little and Bubba would be out of town and I would have to call him on the phone and talk to him until #2 would fall asleep. My sweet baby boy.

Terrific Tuesday


You all must think I am a manic depressive but I have yet to be clinically diagnosed. I first want to thank all of you for your support through my rough week 2 weeks ago. It only got worse when I was attacked by my asthma. I am better now after spending a little money. JUST KIDDING!

I have lots to share and little time. I have been working on a project that I will share this afternoon. Need to take the pictures. I have a big smile on my face and ready to conquer the world today.

I hope you are all well. I promise I will be back.
