I’m Baaaack

I’ve been a bad blogger. I apologize.

I do have a lot of reasons excuses for not posting all summer. Today I’ll begin to fill in the blanks of the last few months.

First, we mourned the demise of Penelope (you can read more about her here be sure to click on the comments).

On April 19, 2012, my hubby was involved in a wreck when a motorist ran a red light. He developed a fondness for his rib belt. {We named it Mirt, short for Man Girdle–Mirdle.}

He’s okay now but it was a long two month recovery period. He is a general contractor. Normally he would have been forming pads, working on footings, and smoothing yards with he little John Deere tractor. Spring and summer are his peak seasons. He managed to hire out the work so the jobs stayed on relatively on track.

Don’t worry, we got our replacement car-also a red Prius. Good gas mileage still ROCKS! The new car is even better. It’s a 2012, Prius 4. I know that means absolutely nothing to the non-hybrid people. It just means more bells and whistles than the last one. The dealer made us a super deal.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

-Romans 8:28

 

Next, my youngest son had stitches. He was helping his dad repair the fence and cut his leg on a post.

We had a crazy morning. Hubby was still sore from the wreck so when the cows got out {because that’s what cows do at the worst possible moments} he took our son along to do the lifting and pulling. I heard a door slam then, “MOM! Come look at this.” Ugh, big gash, another doctor visit.

Then, my sister had surgery. I knew it was coming and I had volunteered, willingly, to help around her house for a few days. I just hadn’t planned on all the drama of the previous week. It was actually a nice break for all of us. My son and I got to play with my five-year-old niece and even go on a field trip with her kindergarten class. Hubby was glad to have some alone time.

Did I mention that both sons are involved in 4-H Shooting Sports and they had practice two nights a week and all day Saturday? And that Hubby and I cook lunch for the group on Saturdays? And that we were trying to finish up homeschooling for the year? And, and, and…
