Why I Disappeared

My last real post was, I believe, May 11th. It wasn't that I got bored or decided not to blog anymore. Nope, a lot was going on. Things seem to just now be settling down. But, this is what kept me busy.

On May 15th my daughter became a bride. The days and weeks leading up to that date were packed full of things that needed to get done. Of course, if you have ever planned a wedding, this isn't any news.



The first picture is my daughter and her new husband (as if it really needed an explanation); The second, my husband and son and lastly, my two daughters. It was a beautiful day, a beautiful ceremony and lovely reception. I could not be happier with my daughter's choice of a husband. In fact, everything was perfect.

As soon as I caught my breath after the wedding, my son graduated from eighth grade. It just doesn't seem possible that I could have a married daughter and a son going into high school. The only explanation is that I must have married and had my children very, very young because I certainly don't feel old enough.


When my daughter and her new husband returned from their honeymoon, we helped move her out and into his apartment. The middle daughter wasted no time in claiming the elder's room as it was larger. My son wanted to remain where he was which left an empty bedroom. Though I miss not having my daughter here, I did gain an office. I stayed with the paint color because I frankly didn't want to take the time to paint, and moved in. This opened my kitchen up so all of it could be used for it's purpose. So, now I have a place I can go and close the door and write.















So, now that things have settled, I plan on getting back into the groove of blogging, reading blogs, writing, researching and all the things I had to put aside during the month of May and beginning of June.

How about you, anything major happen while I was away?

  9. Praise God for office space and praise God the wedding is behind you. As beautiful and wonderful as weddings are - - they really wear a person out before they get here.
