I haven’t forgotten…. I promise!

I mean I haven’t forgotten about my poor blog.  Life has been SUPER crazy the last month…. Well really ALL summer!  With my girls going to girls camp. Then my oldest going to Youth Conference in Nauvoo, Illinois.  Then my hubby going to Scout Camp for a week. Not to mention ALL the craziness of keeping up with my 4 girls at home. TRYING my hardest to get them to do their CHORES and keep their rooms clean.  I think I just might go crazy- that is a NEVER ENDING BATTLE in itself!

I haven’t taken many pictures this summer. We haven’t done much of anything “fun and exciting” according to my girls.  I was hoping for a trip HOME (to CA) to see my parents and brother.  I am the ONLY child NOT going home this summer for a visit and I feel VERY left out!  I would do ANYTHING to go home for a little while before school starts.  Believe me if I had a credit card, I would CHARGE IT! But since paying off all the major credit cards we don’t have one anymore…..  Oh! And did I mention that my hubby GETS TO GO back to California in a week?  Oh ya, he is heading to Camp Pendleton for a course out there for a week. NOPE! He is NOT taking us with him. But yes he gets to go visit HIS family.  I tried to talk him into driving out there so we could go along…. That was a NO GO!  Oh well, it was worth a try.

I wish I could write about all adventures we’ve had this summer.  It is sad that California girls have only gone swimming twice this summer. We don’t look much like California girls. Our tans are, well NOT. It has been super HOT and HUMID here in Michigan this summer.  Everyone tells me that this is “not normal”. It has been so dry that the corn crop that was planted out here has basically DIED!  I am soooo glad we didn’t plant a garden this year. It would have all gone to waste!

I have been in a slump lately.  I am just missing “Home”.
In other news…. BIG changes are going to be happening in the  Young Women's organization at church.  Our Young Women's President is moving before the end of the month.  Her husband just got a job in Nebraska.  So that means CHANGES in the Presidency.  I have been teased non-stop about being the next YW Pres.  We will see. HOPEFULLY it won’t be too much longer before we find out. I have really enjoyed being in with my girls.  It has been a fabulous calling and I have LOVED working with the women in this presidency. I have made friendships that I know will last a lifetime.

Well, I think that’s about it. I would love to say I promise to be better but I think life is still going to be crazy for a little while.  But I WILL say that I am going to TRY to do better J

Thanks for listening to me babble.
