~~I'm a boring blogger these days. I know. Nothing really exciting has happened for me to share. But I'll share some not-so-exciting things with you anyway.
~~School is out for the girls. This first week has been busy, yet boring, for all of us. We've had appointments but haven't had the chance to do much of anything fun. I keep telling the girls that we have the whole summer ahead of us. But as usual, I know it's going to fly by.
~~Emma Grace missed her last day of school to what turned out to be a sinus infection. Now, unfortunately, Matthew is suffering the stuffy nose syndrome along with a cough. He is also rubbing one of his ears, and to be honest, I don't like the way his cough is starting to sound. No fever, though, and still happily playful, but a trip to the doctor might be in his near future, too.
~~Gib still has two weeks of work left before his summer officially begins. But right as work ends, his online classes will start up again. No rest for the weary, I'm afraid.
~~We are hoping to take a summer trip with Gib's brother and his family sometime in July. Matthew might be spending his first birthday out of the country! We will see how it all plays out, and I'll share more as details unfold.
~~A sweet friend gave me a jogging stroller that I can't wait to put to good use. (Thank you Leah!) I walked a couple of days with a friend of mine and it felt so good to get my blood pumping again. Lord knows I need to get in shape! Where, oh where, is my motivation? If someone finds it, could you please tell it to come visit me?!
~~Jessica is turning 12 tomorrow, and I honestly can't believe it. To my surprise, she did not want a party. She is having a friend over tonight and another tomorrow night. Whatever makes the birthday girl happy is good with me!
~~We have a busy weekend ahead. Birthday fun for Jess, a graduation party for a sweet girl we haven't seen in years and a trip to Dahlonega on Sunday to spend some time at MeMe's house with her and her family. I was hoping to have my friend April take some family pictures of us outside at MeMe's house, but I felt bad asking her AND I was only able to get my hair cut, not colored this past week. I know that seems so vain, but if your hair was as white as mine, you'd understand! I'm hoping Monday will be a quiet day at home.
~~See. I told you nothing too exciting was going on with us, but I wanted to check in and say hi anyway. Hope all of you have a fun, safe Memorial Day weekend!
