Back Again






















To be greeted with 1000's of unread blogs in my reader. AAAAAHHHHHHH!!! I just had to mark all as read and start over. I was too overwhelmed. If I missed anything big please let me know.

We survived the week at the lake. The girls had a great time and have sunkissed faces to prove it. I, on the other hand, was almost going into DT's without internet. Honestly didn't realize how much support all of you are until I didn't have it. Then I forgot my books. Remembered every stinking thing for the girls and forgot entertainment for my ownself. Then the satellite was out. The girls don't watch TV but I will after their bedtime when I'm without books. Thursday I bribed (and whined) one of my friends to bring me some books. I was starting to get grouchy by Thursday so it's a good thing Connie showed up. I managed four 400 page books between Thursday to Sunday afternoon. Back to being a happy camper.

Dia and Laynie helped entertain me with phone calls or I might have stepped off the edge. Very grateful to Dia, Laynie, Christine and Corazon for standing in my stead and keeping y'all entertained. That Corazon is a really talented writer and I can't wait to see what she does when she grows up.

The tree murderers have left finally. I'm going to walk on the property behind me and see the destruction later. Seriously, if you want to build in a pasture buy a pasture. Why cut down a beautiful untouched forest to turn it into a pasture? I just don't understand. The critters are still crying around my property. Ugh.
Chrissi will be here from Germany tomorrow. For almost 3 weeks. I have a sitter coming to stay with the girls so that Chrissi and I will have a little bit of time just to catch up. Yahoo. Besides it would be way past the girls bed time before we get home.
Claudia's awesome new book arrived while we were gone. Autographed by Claudia and Bart. The library books are holding me hostage at the moment but as soon as they are done I'll be diving into Out of Many, One Family. In case you forgot, Claudia matched Special K with us. She rocks!

As soon as we got home the entertainment really began. More later.....

No internet, no books and no TV- I wouldn't have lasted 2 hours!

But those are two beautifully happy girls you've got there!

Welcome back! Great pics of the synchronized diving/jumping. Don't know how you survived even that long without books! And am cringing at the thought of the forest destruction. Enjoy the current fun...

Jeremiah's home for good now, so that's awesome, but besides that, nothing big. :)

I am so envious of being able to swim all day. It's been such a cool summer we've only gotten into the water twice. :(

Blessings!

Looks like lots of us took summer breaks. I am so glad you finally got some books, cause I would have lost my mind if I were you.
LOVE the pics of the girls. They look so free and happy.
