That Time of Year

Oh, it is busy around here.  This week we will be eating breakfast and dinner in the car


There is something on every night - Activity Day Girls, Mid-Singles FHE, Scouts, RS Christmas Dinner, cousins coming into town etc.  Yikes.

I feel like I am still trying to catch up from Thanksgiving . . . or summer really since I have about 100 blog posts to write if this blog is really going to be our little family history.  I'll get to it all - someday.

For now, I am working and I love my job.  It is challenging, there is a lot to learn, but it is interesting and I work with nice people.  It is a HUGE adjustment becoming a single mom who also works full-time.  We rarely get home before 7:00pm.  I could not raise these children without my sisters right now.  Heather gets the kids started on their homework after school and generously welcomes the kids into her home way too early every morning.  Kirstin is still putting up with a houseful of kids and a sister and far too many clogged toilets. My brother Scott helped us get through the months of unemployment as I searched for work here in Oregon.  I am so grateful for family. 

I have much to share, but it will have to wait until I have more than 10 minutes to sit down and type.  We miss you all so much!

All I want for Christmas is a little home of our own.  Please keep us in your prayers as I try to find a little place of our own to rent.  We are anxious to be settled and to cut down on the time we spend int he car.


  1. You are definitely in my prayers. At one time, I was a single mom of 3 children who also worked full time, so I understand completely. My kids lived through it and are now married and have children of their own. In fact, I am waiting for my first great grandchild due in March. You are very strong and I love reading your blog.
