One Year Later

Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how fast time really does pass. It has been one year since I moved to my new family, and left everything I knew behind. Now, leaving all of my family has been the hardest thing I ever had to do, and it was not at all what I even wanted to do! I wanted, foolishly I suppose, to keep my mom close to me, as she always has been. I miss her more than I ever knew I could. That has been the hardest adjustment for me.

However, life in this house is normally a joyous experience. Yes, we have our days. What family doesn't? Today is one of those days, but I know things will smooth back out. I must learn to push for what I want, and just do what I want and not wait for anyone (or a certain someone) to do it with me. So, here in a few hours, I'm going to go do something I've wanted to do since moving to the area. I'm going to go see the lighthouse. I've always loved them, I think because my Grandparents loved them. Grandpa was stationed in Puget Sound during Korea, and they fell in love with the sea and the lighthouses. I'm keeping that alive in my own way. Ironic, my Grandpa worked for a company called Fiat Allis for decades. I live just blocks away from the home plant here in West Allis. Its like they are always around me. I like it.

So, Memorial Day. Unofficial Kickoff to Summer. I'm in between 2 lakes. What am I doing today? same stuff I do everyday. Next weekend, hubby and I are going out for our anniversary. I'm really looking forward to some time away and a break from my routine. I love being a stay at home mom, but even I need days off. Hubby doesn't get this. Of course, what husband does? He's going back to work Tuesday. We are thankful for the blessings that Heavenly Father has poured upon us. He carries us through some very trying times. Bills are always met. Food is always on the table. He is GOOD to us.

Well, that's about all for now. Kids are great, adults are great. Life is good.
