Loved this book.

This book started slow, but the interpersonal interactions and feelings were top notch. It's a murder mystery set in Iceland by an Icelander. Loved the end, can't stop thinking about it. He pulled everything together in an emotional manner and my eyes teared up on the last page. I would recommend this book to anyone. Really good read. Not exciting with action, but memories and family relationships were excellent.

Community clean up day!

As a primary we cleaned up East Side Lake. The day before had been over 80 Degrees, but it rained all night so Saturday was about 40 degrees instead. The area was not really bad. I did get to hang off the side to catch plastic bags and garbage that was fun, but I didn't fall in, Yeah!! I just got really dirty. We all did. Lots of laundry when we got home that day. Sam and Cenny found a big blue bucket and Gunnar found a big traffice cone. Everyone seemed to be haing fun even in the cold. 1st photo is from the Post Bulletin Austin Edition.

I am so lucky

David is the most awesomest wonderful amazing man to have ever walk the planet. Whenever I talk to or about the rest of your spouses I realize what true losers they are. I feel sad for the rest of you that there is only one David to go around.

Tough nuggies for the rest of you.

Sometimes I get so busy that I forget to keep up with people I should keep up with. Today a friend invited me over for muffins. At first I looked around the house realizing that all the time I put in writing is not really getting my house cleaned, but then I decided somethings are more important then a clean house. (Honestly everything wins over cleaning the house, but nothing gets in the way of writing and today I put that on pause.)We had a great visit and many laughs. Thanks Sarah I would lock myself away if not for friends like you.
Finding time is sometimes more work then just making it. Priorities I guess.

Qatar and tennis

Qatar is playing tennis again this year. He is getting better, but really enjoys the image most of all. He won't cut his hair and it really isn't so bad. The new boy favorite hair cut, long and in the eyes. I think many of them work as hard on their hair as girls do now. Yuck that is the only reason I would want to be a guy.

It was wonderful seeing everyone and staying up way way way too late talking and laughing. I am exhausted and feel my brain may explode without more sleep. I will miss Grandpa, but hearing all the memories and laughing though the tears was wonderful.

Thank you to everyone in California for putting everything together and feeding us all so many times. The Easter egg hunt was wonderful and I loved seeing all the kids and even their parents. I wish we could get together more often its amazing how everyone is suddenly not as busy as they think they are when there is a funeral for someone we love and miss. Thanks Kendal for the hugs and Ryan for being so cute. Tyler and Kendel for the tickling and the delicious chocolate cake. I wish I had called ahead for warmer weather.

Getting home at 2am was not my best memory, but I have so many more. Randy's Bella impression and Batman. Jakey's hair and Lily's beautiful face. Heidi and Roxy both of them talking and talking, Kristi for not wearing the same oufit(thanks for checking), Dying eggs and See's candy. Visiting with a good friend of mine, Steven's spread page, Paige and her stomach, and waking up at 4 am most days. Lots of pictures and memories to share. I will miss everyone more now, darn it.

Thanks Dad and Mom for everything.

We started Financial Peace University last night. It is being held at a local church and the discussion group was fun if not a bit quiet since we just met each other. I will miss next week, but David will go. 13weeks to a new fianancial life.
