I love this blog land, I feel connected to so many people all over, even though I live here in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Which I love it's beautiful even when it rains. I am just ready for summer, long sunny days sun tanning and sipping on ice tea with my girls and a good favorite mag. which ever I happen to have on hand I love so many, I really miss the HOME COMPAINION mag.

Finially at 3pm took my shower and in a half an hour I am out running again to pick up my 16 yr old from afterschool program, then I will need to come home tackle the homework and computer thing and cook supper and maybe some wash. Is my day done yet?
Have you had a day like this? Leave me a comment and share your moments with me.
Please don't get me wrong, I love being a Mother and being here for my girls. Sometimes life gets crazy and all I want to do is create something. Maybe tonight when my husband is at his church board meeting.

My heart to heavy with just the fact that I left my mother last week to come back home and take care of my family again. That was a tough choice because my mom needs me to. But so does my daughters need their mommy too. I know my mother is being taken care of it's just the heartbreaking thought. you know of leaving behind loved ones for other love ones. wow I better stop or I will starting watering my computer all up.
Spend the day with someone special and like our sign at our church says "have you called you mom this week?"

I have so much to share, my thoughts are rushing through my head and my heart. But I have to be a mom and wife first so much to catch up on and today starts my day running.
With my oldest turning 16 in the morning I have lots to do. So I will post more later and have lots of pics to show you.
Please still keep my mother Ada in your prayers. And I want to say THANK YOU to all who have been praying for her, and who sent us cards and called me in Maine it meant alot.
