welcome back

Amber came back from her trip last night. It was so good to see her! I almost forgot what a wonderful young women she has become. I must say that I enjoy my children now more then ever.
Rusty left for his trip today. I am hoping to see him Saturday night, but I will definitely see him Sunday. This trip did catch me off guard, but I came up with a schedule to keep me busy. I am going to go through the house a room at a time and do a super scrub down. This house could use a good scrubbing.
Today I started with this hallway that is just piled up with trash. What is that about? I had a ladder and a box of Christmas trash just sitting there. I also went and put away all the stuff that I just piled up. Then I cleaned the carpets in that room.
I want to know where all of this stuff is coming from? I am forever getting rid of stuff and yet more stuff keeps showing up! I am going to catch those elves one day.
Amber told me today that she wants to find love and wants to get married. I want that for her as well, and someday I hope that she finds it. All I could say was "Just keep doing what you love, keep traveling and love will find you. I promise." I do hope that is enough for Amber.
Tonight I do not have much planned. I think I am going to sit in bed and work on a blanket. I still have not finished the never ending blanket, but I am going to find the time to work on it tomorrow.

I wish I had some of your ambition. I have so much to do but I seem to be "ambition" challenged. I didn't go to CA with Bob this time because I wanted to stay here & get some stuff done. He's been gone since Sunday & I've done diddly squat around this house. Lazy Linda in Washington

My kids wish they could find someone that is serious to marriage, but I don't think they make those kinda people anymore.
I do the same thing and tell them well you're not gonna find them here go out in the world and meet people they're out there somewhere.
Take care, Chrissie

I hope Amber finds someone who see her for who she is inside and out. Someone who loves her just the way she is and doesn't need to change a thing. A rarity to find in a guy these days. But you and I both managed to find one. (Hugs)Indigo

You are always so full of energy. My hall still has Christmas stuff in it and we have one giftbag that's gone somewhere I cannot find it to save my life. I'm very proud of Amber's rootedness too. She is so grounded and so serious but I believe it's because of her relationship with the Lord. It's good to keep busy when hubby is gone. You always inspire me to do deep cleaning. Whenever I read that you have, I follow suit. LOL
