Still Here

I haven't disappeared on you so soon...I promise I haven't. Just been busy and had a busy weekend. My parents brought down my little brothers on Saturday and we've been going to sail boat races, parks and summer camps. They're staying with me for the week while they go to summer camps here...one is in baseball, the other in swim. We are keeping quite the busy schedule...I don't know how my mom does this every day. I'm absolutely loving it, but it's definitely busy. Not that I didn't respect my mom before, but I have a newly heightened appreciation for everything she does.

I will have pictures from our jaunt up to the wineries in Temecula from Saturday and pictures from the sailboat race on Sunday soon, but they may be slightly delayed in being posted since I'm spending as much time as possible with my brothers while they are here. I don't often get to spend such extended periods of time with them anymore. I'm loving it, busy-ness and all. :)

Also...the bf's dad said YES to our bat dog. However, the family we were getting her from is undecided if they actually need to give her away, so we are waiting to hear. Yaya, I honestly do not know how you do it. I know that pets and children are vastly different in many ways (and I in no way intend to imply that I know how you feel, because I don't), but if this is just the tiniest little fraction of how you must feel...wow. Just wow. I REALLY hope you find out soon...and that the news is what you want to hear. You are in my prayers!

Wow, sounds like a fun, fulfilling and busy weekend... and hope you get the puppy!!!

Like you said, I can't even imagine what Yaya is feeling or going through, but I think it's awesome that you mention it here and offer that sympathy and prayers. My prayers are with her too.

You don't really know what busy is until you have kids involved in activities. Your life becomes one big whirlwind. I actually think it was MUCH easier when they were infants!

Jaina said...

Momo-I definitely believe it. Whew! It's fun though :)

Yes, mom's with young kids are busy people, aren't they? My daughter is always on the go, horseback riding, swimming, girl scouts, dance lessons, and on and on. And when my granddaughters are here, I love it, but when they go home, I'm exhausted1 But it's always so much fun.

Hope you get the cute bat puppy. Have a great week, Jaina.

Hugs,

Renie

Renie-Wow, she sounds crazy busy! I'm definitely going to enjoy my mini-vacation to San Francisco after this. I'm loving every minute of it though, and the boys are having a great time at camp. :)

Yaya-Wine tasting is good stuff.
