I finally got this to work. I think my computer was blocking my ability to get on the blog but after being the stubborn person that I am figured out how to resolve the problem. I knew I could do it! I am not a very computer savvy person!
It has been months, I know! The funny thing is that not much has changed. Dave is working way to many hours, comes home exhausted, working 7 days a week. He is going to work himself sick. He comes home and falls asleep in the chair minutes after sitting down. Tanner has developed a deep appreciation of how hard Dave works, he is also working at the sod farm laying sod. At first Tanner viewed it as a way of getting paid to lift weights in exchange of going to the gym and getting his workout, but when it is humid and your underwear sticks to everything and the dust is so far up your nose that you can't breath, he began to develop second thoughts of his choice for work. He is determined not to let Dave down and make it through the summer but is not sure that he wants to do it again next summer although the money is very good. Tanner claims that the only good thing about the dust so far up his nose is that he can't smell anyone next to him on the steamy rides home. (haha) Mitchell is simply enjoying being an 8 year old this summer with no responsibilities at all except Katie (the dog). As for me, works is picking up some, the construction slow down had us to less than 1/2 staff with the electricians and although we have not hired anyone back yet, we are seeing a small but positive change.
The next event for me to plan is Missi's shower for the Kuoppala side of the family, I was originally looking at September 15th but saw that Becky may be planning something that weekend as well in connection with Eric's wedding. The 22nd would work ok as well if that date works for Missi. Becky, you will need to let me know when you confirm Eric's plans and we will go from there.
Who is staying where for the wedding??? Does everyone have plans of when they are arriving and where they are staying for Ivan and Missi's wedding?
Sorry we have been so out of touch with everyone, I hate to say the "w" word but I am ready for winter! Things slow down then and Dave's life gets back to normal and I don't have to try and keep the boys quiet constantly(smiles). We need rain!!! A lot of rain!!!
I am still working on my list of things to do before I am 50 but I haven't checked to many off yet....but am plugging away!
Take Care All!!
See you in October
