Enjoyed a nice quiet day with my family today. Our little one was getting her energy back but not 100% so no going outside in pool or public.
Movies and games were played. My husband got some items done for us around the house. Ran errands for us and got our family picture getting done for over fireplace.
It was my best friends 40th Birthday I look forward to celebrating with her when she’s back in town. My step daughter got married today she’s my husbands first born. She’s a beautiful young woman and we wish her and her groom lots of love laughter and happiness.
I wish that this event included our family mainly my husband. No one should be shut out of their children’s lives. It’s been close to a decade that my husband has been divorced and missed life events and normal day to day contact with his three beautiful gurus who are now young women. All graduated from high school his oldest Hayley just graduated college and is as of tonight a married woman. Heather graduated from beauty school and looks like she’s doing great. Meagan going to Purdue in the Fall for college.
I am sad not just for my husband who dearly loves these girls and reaches out and gets his heart broken every time they choose not to respond. He has sent gifts wrote beautiful letters but he can only do him.
I’ve told him I have faith that they will open their hearts as they grow in life. It’s hard when you’ve been kept from someone for so long and only told negative things about them by someone you love and trust.
I am sad these girls are missing out on all the love kindness laughter friendship guidance and fathering they have missed out on. I have been praying everyday that their can be relationships built up again for him with his eldest daughters.
I would love to have a relationship with them as well as them with my son and their baby sister who just turned two. I just hope that they remember we love them and our home is their home we are their family and will always. E here for them.
I am still so sad that I have limited time to enjoy my aunt Janne. Cancer truly sucks I love her with all my heart and want to spend as much time as I can with her before it’s too late.
Our house is really coming together I need to take some more pictures to post. It’s almost time to get my sons school uniforms bought and shoes and supplies.
I ordered him another summer book he can start reading this week when it comes in. My daughter gets to start pre school next month.
I’m looking forward to date night with my husband tomorrow night. Watching some pioneer woman episodes now. Plan on more home cooking in my beautiful new kitchen.
Missing my nephews and niece so much been awhile since I’ve seen them they are all growing up so much three high schoolers this year and one in college and one is 23. So proud of them all they are terrific.
So much to get done this summer still. Home items galore. Real estate test for my husband. Brokers test for me all my book work still to do. Want to do beach trip with kids. Want to do another Disney trip. Want to do San Francisco family trip, Yosemite and get a boat for day to take out on gull or grant lake .
I have books I want to finish I want to work on getting in shape. Use my ice cream maker with kiddos. I have pure Barre tomorrow and hoping to go all week. My kids are growing up so fast I am trying to savor every moment with them.
I would love to take some more cooking classes I took a 6 month culinary course at our local cooking with class back in 2012. It was so much fun and I learned a lot. I want to travel more and see more family members that I miss.
I feel very blesssed and make sure to count my blessings daily. I don’t have it all figured out nor even close. I have really hard rough days sometimes.But I have a wonderful family and work hard to be a loving wonderful wife and try to be the right balance of strict and fun mom.
This week I will review my latest stitch fix box. Latest Martha and Marley spoon recipes. I will keep a progress report of my health and fitness. Planning out the remainder of our summer break.
Goodnight everyone 🏡🙏😴
