Oh Well.. oh well, what an adventure!

Yep.. that’s the path I’m on right now.. everything seems to be focused on what is going on right now.. and how right now choices are going to play out in a year.. Lets just say, our Navy life could be finished, or maybe not.. without going into detail, all I know is this time next year I have a feeling my life will be totally different..  We should find out this week.  One path takes us on another 3 year tour the other takes us home to Wyoming to start the next phase.  I hate relying on other’s to make these decisions for us.. extremely frustrating!!!

  So.. I have been extremely lacking in the blogging department.. that includes visiting other’s.. I check in with a few here and there.. but mostly you can find me on Facebook.. seems to be my “drug” of choice for now!  I guess I’m just unmotivated to see all of the fun projects that everyone is doing.. since all of my decorating plans are in Wyoming!!  I didn’t even get out my Easter Decorations this year.. nope, nada.. sad huh?  I did dig out the Easter Baskets for my kids.. that was it. 

  Let’s see.. I feel another five years older today.. My son turns 16!!!  Really, am I old enough to have a 16 year old?  I don’t feel like it~  I feel like I could be 16 (mentally of course.. not physically!!)  He’s not getting  his licence yet.. he still needs Driver’s Education, but he’s on his way.  Both of my kids really have grown up this year.  I spent 3 days last week up on Orca’s Island in the San Juan’s with my daughter’s school.  Every year the 6th graders in our area go to Camp Moran.  It was fun, but it was really interesting to see my 12 year old interacting with her peers.. she’s just not a little girl anymore!  I do have some pictures.. Here’s one of just her.. it was a fun time.. the weather was gorgeous..

  The only thing I have worked on recently is a lamp.. it was a thrift store find.. all of it under $3.00~!!  It started out as a beautiful 80’s castoff – think Mauve and Blue.. and ducks.. lovely!!!  I forgot to take a before picture.. but here she is now in her loveliness!
