Has it been that long?

Oh my gosh! So i log into my Blog here and see that it has actually been a month and a half since i have posted! What the heck? Man have i been busy or what?
Well, it all started when we decided to move and build a house out on our land in Buttonwillow. We decided to do that and with me thinking we were going to be getting out of our house in May or early June. I decided the best thing to do was to take the kids and go down to my mom and dad's for the summer. So i packed up the house as much as i could and trekked down there for the summer. Only to realize that we weren't going to be getting out of the house till the end of the summer. But by then, i had already moved all the kids clothes down there and signed them up for piano lessons down there for the summer.
So, where does that leave me, you ask? Well, that has left me going back and forth from L.A. where my girls are, to Bakersfield, where my husband is, every week this summer.
The only reason i am on the computer right now is because i came home on Friday, and i am leaving tomorrow to go back for piano and then coming back on Thursday, and then going back down next Wednesday.
I never thought i would say this, but i CANNOT WAIT for summer to be over and for us to get back into our routine! However, i am not too sure if we will be getting e regular routine anytime soon, since our house is packed, but i am not sure when the new house will be done!
I hate the interim! However, i must say that it has been good to be down at my mom's for the summer. i have been able to get a lot of fun reading done. And a bit of rest. Plus we have gone out and done fun things. Then i come home and do lots and lots of sewing!
It has also been good for me because I have been able to sit back for the first time in 11 years of marriage and take stock of where i am in life, where i want to be and what i need to do to change.
I have decided that i have no willpower! I put things off all the time instead of just doing them. I say, oh i will clean that tomorrow. Oh, i will start losing weight tomorrow. And then a year full of tomorrows have passed and i haven't done it. I need to start doing these things now, not tomorrow. So my first goals are to lose weight, read my scriptures everyday, say prayers morning and night and have family home evening with the kids once a week.
I think if i can start making those things a habit then everything else will fall into place. I know that when you put the Lord first in your life, He will always help take care of the rest. Pray for me! Pray that I will be able to achieve these goals and make them a habit before the end of the year! Please!

Hey Becky!! I've been thinking about you and wondering how you are! I asked Scott where Buttonwillow was when we were driving home on Sunday, wondering how the house was coming along. :)

Did you see the Half-Blood Prince yet?! We went Wednesday night before our trip -- we couldn't wait! LOVED IT! Obviously they change certain things for the movie, but still soo good. I reread the book again this week, too -- I wanted to know exactly what the differences were between the book and the movie.

Anyhow, I'm glad this summer has been good for you spiritually, even if it's been a little crazy!! I'm ready for the chaos around here to settle down, too. But we're making progress! Slowly but surely! Looking forward to doing our Hogwarts lessons come September. :)
