Yes again I have disappeared into that great sunset in the sky....I just cannot seem to have the ability to juggle too many things at one time.  A bit of the chaos was that we have now finished two children from the great walls of high school at the same time. For most families having one child graduate is alot of work and insanity and such....well try two at a time....and no it is not easier because they do not have the same friends, they do not have the same interests or likes, and they have totally opposite plans for the summer and the future. So it just made life unbelieveable for a while. I am really hoping that this is the end of the insanity and life gets back to some sort of normalcy. Okay then..... We have to have professional pictures made of the graduates....the school does not provide pics of them in cap and gowns.... sorry low school budgets in the sunshine we are having them professionally done and I will show them off as soon as we get something.

     The we had a family hunnie's aunt in tennessee had a heart attack and fell straight forward onto her face....(she is about 87 years old)... well she fractured her entire face and had a stroke afterwards. So one of my sons had to drive my mother in law and her daughter to tennessee because they did not want to make the drive themselves to see my mother in law's sister. No one really thought that she would make it. Well through the power of miracles she did....they are waiting on doing surgery on her because she has diabetes and right now they are trying to control that. But Thank God everything else looks good and she is on the road to recovery. So that put a spin on everything here.

     Then as usual you know that we had to have car trouble....what would life be like if I did not have car trouble? Well this time the van would not stay on. After testing tons of things it turns out that some major wire was shorted out and melting down nicely that allowed the battery to charge from the alternator. Yes another mess we got ourselves into. But it seems that got fixed then we had to fix my sister in laws car. Now mind you......... she has not worked in God only knows how long....and is really not helping out the way she said she would. So of course the nice people we are, we put up the money for her new starter and pulleys so that her car could get fixed. Now ask me if we could afford it........NO...... BUT ........ we helped her out anyway.....hoping she would get a job.

     Now High School classes were over two weeks ago, elementary and middle schools end this tuesday....... then the nephew will be home all day. Lord I do not think I have the energy to keep up with him this summer. He has really been testing his limits lately....something has gotten into him and it has been interesting trying to figure out what is going on.

     Now....talking about summer.....the heat index is already over the top for is in the 90's and almost impossible to breathe outside. Of course just to add to my fun, the a/c unit in my puter room is going on blink. So staying cool has been a big priority for me. It is very difficult for me to breathe in general under the best of circumstances so in the heat, it is torture.

     We still have the last three puppies here....the lady who is suppose to pick them up was in the hospital with pneumonia, she is just starting to recover, so we have been living with 8 dogs...... now that makes for an insane household. Just imagine the kind of mess dogs are capable of doing on top of puppies chewing and so on.  So once we get rid of the puppies, we are going to have to redo the house totally. We have already removed rugs from the hallway, and there is no furniture in my living room. (don't ask).

     As you can see, I have disappeared for good reasons, but I do miss keeping up with my journal. It gives me a outlet to speak and not worry, but I just cannot juggle everything. I hope to be in touch again soon--keep your fingers crossed. PEACE!!!!!!

I just want to wish all you WONDERFUL  mothers out there a GREAT and SPECIAL day. Here Mother's day was wonderful....dinner was cooked for choice of what dinner would be and all my children cancelled any kind of plans to stay home with me and make me nuts and it was WONDERFUL. I loved every second of it. Really it was a very peaceful day filled with lil surprises and lots of laughs. My children have always made their own cards for is so funny to get a homemade card from boys who are 19 but it is the greatest feeling for me. I cherish every single card and note they have ever made for me.... I think that means more then anything they could ever buy me.
     I did however want to mention most assuredly my mom. This is a woman that made me the person I am. Her patience with me all through my life amazes me to this day. Her protection of me and her endless Love are truly a miracle for me. I know that she has such a special place next to God when the time for heaven comes because of all the kindness that she has shown others during her life. My father would not be the person he is if it was not for my mom....she took care of all things at home and of him so that he could work and become the success he was and is.
     There are times during my teen years that I swore I would never be like my mother.....then as I grew up I realized that I am my mother.....and for that I feel so blessed. She has always done for others and never asked for squat in return.... and to this day I could go to her house....and get the best home cooked meal on God's green earth. So for all that My Mother Is and For all That She Allowed Me to Be....THANKS MOM from the bottom of my heart.

I hope everyone had a GREAT day....... I hope to get back here soon and fill you all in on my crazt life........ Until Then-----PEACE!!!!!!
