What a great day today!! I should say great mail day today!!! Two things came in the mail that was unexpected... one was unexpected money...hello.. gotta love that!!!
The second and the most exciting thing is we received a letter from the school that our children attend, telling us that my eight year old daughter has been nominated for the Northwestern Mutual Character Award. Her teacher nominated her for being caring... I can hear you awwwwing now, I know I still am. They are going to recognize her, as well as, the other character nominees on May 27th at 7:00. Ironic thing is that is the tenth anniversary of my dad's passing away, one his strongest character traits...caring.

I am one proud mama!!!

What a Whirlwind

The past couple of weeks have been a blur..

I had an unexpected trip out of town to see my sister who was ill (thankfully she is better now - just had us scared!)

My son has had a strange rash for almost two weeks now.. apparently it is a virus that just has to run its course.

The course....can last up to six weeks or so.


Finally decided to have my garage sale.

The weekend my husband was out of town.

Not my smartest move.

I survived and actually made a little bit out of it.

Now that things have seeminly calmed down, I am going to try to get back on track with everything. Let's see how that goes... I promise to let you know.
