This post is a bit random.  I'm writing it because my daughter, Key Lime Pie, was complaining that I hadn't written anything on my blog lately...  It has been a difficult couple of weeks and writing on the blog has taken a back seat to dealing with a miscarriage, the loss of my grandfather, and a bit of depression.  With that said, I thought I would write about some random GOOD things that have happened in the past few weeks.
The highlight of my grandfather's funeral was Friday night when my AWESOME little brothers: Zane and Ben, and their wives took my sister: G.J., her husband, Scott and I out to dinner.  A sibling outing was just what I needed after such icky news all week.  We had a blast visiting, catching up, laughing and being together.  I really have an amazing family and I'm so glad Heavenly Father put me in it.  We joke that I am the odd one in the group, but I'm glad they claim me anyway.
I have wonderful children.  They have been so fun to be around lately.  And they have done all their work (school and house) so cheerfully.  When I feel a bit sad about loosing our baby, I remember the two beautiful daughters I have and I rejoice in their innate goodness and virtue.  I am blessed!
We are listening to a GREAT book right now, thanks to my little brother, Ben.  It is called "The Way of Kings."  There are so many great lessons in this epic fantasy novel.  And we enjoy the story.  We have even picked up some of the language.  Instead of saying "Darn!" we now say "Storm it!"  And my husband has taken to calling me "Brightness."  :-)  It makes me smile!
I have been making cards the past few weeks.  It's fun to stamp and cut and fold and glue again.  I enjoy crafting and there is something extremely therapeutic about creating.  I've almost got my Christmas cards done for 2013.  (I know I am crazy!)


  1. Huh, how can one be an odd one in a group so odd?

    (I know you were adopted, but I'm glad they brought you back!)

  2. Sundy, you make us all look lazy at the least... Tell me something, though. Is the ironing caught up? The floor scrubbed? Dinner in the oven? If you answer yes to those questions, then - let's face it - each generation does it better!
