I'm back! (sort of)

Well I should learn that whenever you complain about being busy the Lord lets you know how busy you could be. My life has become a completely full time adventure! My sweet stepson has moved in with us full time. This is him with his cute girlfriend. I won't get into the details of why I'll just say that he and his mother need to be apart for awhile. Boy #3 has been doing home school along with my stepson which makes my day a non stop learning and teaching extravaganza! I am learning just as much as them. Between high school algebra and second grade history ( Romans! Cool!!!) I am getting a pretty good education myself.
We are going to live here for awhile I think. We need the space now. One room for school another for an extra person. Just a side note I have had to up our food budget again!! With all these people we eat so much! I have had to cook and clean like a feind in the evenings now instead of during the day. It's so crazy that I used to complain about cleaning when I had all day. I was just so lazy and I didn't even know it. Spaghetti, stroganoff, and roast with mashed potatoes have become weekly staples because I can cook a lot with little effort.
By the way it was my birthday on Sunday. I had a great day but I miss the big family parties I usually have. I miss being close to my families but there have been a few things recently that have made me think it is sure good that we are here. Boy #1 moving in for one. We have a great house with tons of space and he can be away from all the drama for awhile. My sweet sister can come here to visit her kids that live in SLC. That has been so fun for me and I hope for her too. I also think this job of #1 man's is teaching him so much. It's not always fun but he is definately learning how to deal with difficult people and circumstances.
Well I miss you all and hope to be able to visit soon. Have a stress free day and if you can send those stress free vibes my way. I need them!
