Don't Give Up . . .

Ok . . . I've given up filling in the gaps for now. The long lost Easter pictures, surgery updates, and everything in between will come later. We're thinking that once we move to Canada and have no social life . . . that we'll have more time to blog! And, I promise . . . I will be better. My little blog will be our connection to our beloved family and friends . . . that will live in a DIFFERENT COUNTRY! So, yes. I realize the extreme value in our blog. I actually adore writing in it and posting pictures of my sweet little angels for the world (or the limited one that I invite). But, I'm working full-time, taking Gavin back and forth to appointments in Salt Lake, coordinating all the many items involved when moving, attempting to pack and always being a mommy and wife. I'm busier than I think I've ever been before. Seriously . . . I take sleeping pills now at night just to stop. It's crazy. But, amidst all of the chaos and excitement and sadness are always beautiful moments that I treasure. The Carrie Underwood song about not letting life slip away hit home to me the other day (although I'm not entirely sure that the song isn't about an alcoholic learning not to be 'wasted' . . . but, whatever . . . it worked for me on the drive home). I'm still living every day . . . not waiting for the move, to hire more help, for Gavin's braces to come in, for Autumn to get over the spitting and "I don't care" phase (please, please, please let that one end soon), or us to sell our vehicles or rent our house . . . I'm going to enjoy every minute that I can. And, man am I going to miss it here.

  1. If anyone can handle all of this, you can. I admire all that you have accomplished and the loving manner in which you have handled what life has given you. I'm very proud of you and love you immeasureably. Accept help when it is offered and try to make a little time for yourself. All my love and best wishes, MOM
