I can’t believe it’s been a month since I blogged…. sheesh! Life has been so busy right now. I have kept up Robert’s blog a little better since when I don’t… people call me to complain. I think I’m in a little better frame of mind since I last blogged… I hope. I hate being so negative. I’m almost a week into my 30 days of hell at work. Between June 9 and July 9:
June 9 – Wine Tasting & Art Show Fundraiser (we raised over $700)
June 15 — Foundation grant due
June 25 – Foundation grant due
June 25 — Dinner & Auction Fundraiser (goal $12,000)
July 1 — State grant due
July 9 — Federal grant due
July 10th cannot get here soon enough!!! Except it’s going to get here quick enough as it is. Oh well… keeping the nose to the grind stone and powering through. It has to be done. The federal grant is the only one I think is a long shot for us… and everyone else knows that too so it’s not like I’m the Lone Ranger. It will be a good experience for us to go through though.
The wedding shower went really well. Jessica is such a beautiful young woman. I met her family over 20 years ago when I was in high school. I babysat for her and her three younger brothers. Her family jokes that I was their family’s nanny. I was in charge of the little welcome at the beginning of the shower and I couldn’t believe that I teared up. She’s just such a special young woman.
Memorial Day weekend we decorated at my family’s cemeteries on Saturday and stopped to see my Mom. She had a good time playing with Robert. He was on fire. That morning he really thought he should be able to quit using his car seat. This has become a constant battle… he hates sitting in it and battles like crazy but once he’s buckled in he’s fine. It’s the 10 minute battle getting him buckled that is about to do me in. Anyway… Jim thought it was cute him sitting in the seat like a big guy… I’m thinking that day is going to come soon enough!
We got Robert’s swing put up and started filling his pool. He loves both of them.
Robert taught Harley to drink from the hose.
And she taught him to drink from the pool… :::sigh:::
