Being 2,530 miles from family, being married to a nuclear engineer with CRAZY work hours, having a 4 year old, a 2 year old, a 5 month old AND having a 2 year old boxer mutt is not always easy, but it's the life the Lord has blessed me with - and it's WAY better than I imagined my life could ever be!

The Black Veil Has Been Lifted
After 3 weeks of walking around in a funk, avoiding tackling any great tasks, even blogging, I am jumping up and down, screaming out of glee and relief, making a sleepy Ashton cry his eyes out in confusion because after misplacing it, I finally found
the camera! The little red camera. The little red camera that we have only had for 6 months. The little red camera from my in-laws! The little red camera that held all the photos from my parents' visit & mine-n-Andy's 36 hour romantic getaway to NYC. To make a long story short, I mysteriously misplaced the camera just 2 days after we came back from The City and I had checked everywhere: the grocery store, the 4Runner & all my bags. Out of desperation today when I discovered I had not downloaded our NYC pics to the computer, I tore open the couches.
Voila! The little red camera lay next to some cheerios, M&M's and half of a dismembered dog toy. Praise the Lord! I was so depressed that I had lost the medium to communicate our lives with family and friends so far away. So to all, I am back! And to the friends who are close, yes, I'm now up to getting together for a bbq or playdate! I can confidently say: "Keep posted. I'll be be posting!"
