I spent 3 weeks in Yuma Arizona over Christmas. I was a little bit afraid I would get bored, but had a blast with family and friends. The ten hour trip in the car was not my favorite part, but it was worth it. Next year Sly will be drugged so that it goes a little easier for me. It is a bummer because he use to love to ride in the car and now he is a big pain in the butt.
I came back to California to turn yet another year older and the funny part about that is I don't feel that old. I remember laughing at my parents when they said this when I was a child, but it is true. I read a great saying the other day:
You're only getting old when you find that your regrets are taking the place of your dreams.I love it because it is so true when you stop dreaming you stop living.
Well after a brief stop home I was off to Florida to watch my brother graduate from EOD school. It was such a great time I didn't realize I hadn't seen my brother since his wedding so we were long over due for a visit. Mom was there too so I haven't spent that much time away from her this last month. Kyle graduated as the Honor Graduate which I am told is a very high honor and difficult to do. Kyle's class started out with 40 people and only 14 graduated, so just passing is a big accomplishment. To do it with the top GPA in your class is BIG!
Well now I am back home and faced with the fact that I might be moving again soon. There is both good and bad in the situation, but I know God will take care of everything. I have good landlords who already have found another place for me to move into. Moving is difficult as it is, but then add the fact that I also have dogs and finding a place can become a nightmare. I will keep everyone up to date as the situation progresses.
That is the update for now (probably not enough to make my mom happy LOL) but I will try and do a better job of keeping this up to date. My goal is at least once a week...even if nothing is going on in my life!
