Life Update

Sorry it has been awhile since my last post - life gets carried away sometimes. I was blessed with a 3 day weekend with my mom, sister, sister-in-law, and 2 cousin-in-laws for a girls scrapbook retreat! We had SO much fun. I missed my man and kids - a little :) But, they saw how much it helped for mom to take a break - my first in exactly 2 YEARS!
My grandma made it through her hip surgery great and told me she felt better than she has in over 2 years! (PRAISE GOD) My little man had his check-up and it was OK - he has lost some weight - 3 lbs to be exact in 3 months - Dr. is a little concerned because he was small to begin with. I am adding a little more protein in his diet and I will just watch him. We go back in a month for a follow-up. If he has lost more weight we will have some tests done. I am a little perplexed because little man is my BIGGEST eater! I would even put him up against my big man (14)! So we will see how it goes. My momma instinct says he is fine - just needs a diet change.
My big man turned 14 on Wednesday!!! Me and my man are so stunned at this! It just hit us like a ton of bricks! He has turned into a fine young man and is doing very well. It seems like yesterday that he was 7 at our wedding and I placed my vows to him to be there for him and love him unconditionally until the day I die. (In case you don't know he is my man's son from another marriage) I am his mom in every way and he treats me as such! I love him with ALL of my soul! I enjoy him and love watching him grow in the Lord and make decisions about his life. He is a JOY!
So there you have it. I am back off of my time off refreshed and renewed! Too bad my man is going to Lubbock for 4 days tomorrow :(

Hey.....go here:

That should take you to the kind of stuff we used. It is a homedepot thing.....compared to other things, it's cheaper...which is nice, but looks nice. I think we did our dining room, kitchen, laundry and pantry area for less than $500. Good luck. Can't wait to see what you get.
