So, it was the first day of summer and it was a full day.  i didn’t take pictures but, even if I did, I don’t know how to get them on here so it would be moot.

we played webkinz.  I’m addicted to one of the games.

we took Connor to the doctors because his nail was falling off.  we thought it was fungus but the doc said she things there was trauma and it just fell off.  we’ll see when the new nail grows in.

we visited my sister to return the hair straightener I borrowed for the wedding.  I’m tempted to look into the Chi that Melissa tried talking me into awhile ago but I’m still too cheap.

Evan played his DS much of the morning.  I may hide it because we don’t have a timer.  I’ll put that on my list of things to do at walmart.  Then we’ll have to put a limit on the amount of time he spends on that thing.

Connor and Garrett played swords and fighting today.  They called me in to see the blood but I didn’t get a chance to go in.  Instead they came out.  Squirts of ketchup were all over their body.  I should have checked on their room at that moment but instead, I asked them if it was all over their room.  They said no so I believed them.  after they cleaned up we left for the doctor.

when we got home, the boys had a snack and then we cleaned the kitchen (ant season you know).  when we got downstairs I forgot about their sword fight so imagine my surprise when I walked in their room and saw dark streaks all over their carpet.  I just breathed a sigh of relief that we never did change the navy carpet we hate to something nicer.  I had Connor grab a wet cloth and wipe up the ketchup with me then I steam cleaned their carpet.  It looks great.  When Jeff got home, he commented to Connor how nice his room looked and did something happen to the carpet.  Connor told me he “just told dad I learned not to play with ketchup inside.”  when i asked if Jeff questioned that Co-nor said “no”.  smart man.  he never knows what will be said.

we went to a cub scout picnic tonight.  so fun.  I really have fun with Connor’s den.

I think that was our day.  sounds boring but it was busy and fun.

Lately, I’ve been finding myself judging people.  When I hear something that is going on with their lives I say things to myself like, “no wonder.  you should have done ____ when you had the chance.  Now you are surprised that — happened?”  It may not make sense here on the blog but in my head it makes perfect sense.  I’m doing to my friends and family what I don’t want them doing to me so I must stop.  But it’s hard.

My family is going through some emotional things right now.  Not Jeff or the boys but my family.  Life changing decisions are being made quickly and without warning and we are all being thrown for a loop.  It’s hard to disagree with someone and not be able to voice it to the person who needs to hear it the most.  It’s hard not being a deep thinker to understand the way they think.  It’s hard getting my husband involved when I know he has so much on his plate providing for us, his family.

So I sit here, judging what my family has done in the past and praying for the future and praying for me to take people as they are and realize the past is just that.  The only thing we can help with is the future.  I sit here realizing that not all husbands and wives are like my beloved and me.  Some don’t talk to each other about disagreements or when they need help.  Some don’t have a strong shoulder to cry on or to hold them up when they are sinking and it breaks my heart.  So, as I pray I cry but I also know that, at the end of the day I am loved and supported by the man God sent my way even when I wasn’t interested in either one, God or a man to find.  I’m thankful for both of them for sticking with me.  always.

Please pray for my family.  All of us could use a little extra right now.
