siiigh, family...

Feb so far has been, well, same old same old and dull...pretty much the same daily routine.

 BUT a few things ... huge discussions about attending the wedding of a family member's stepdaughter.  Half the family is going, the other half not.  There is an interesting twist, that I cannot discuss online.  Some of the non attenders cannot deal with the twist and won't.  Some are going to be out of town, and some not interested in attending, twist or not.    The discussions aren't bad, angry or anything...and actually kind of good, as I believe that when you have to defend your point of view, it really makes you think about your point of view.  Esp in what is a controversial family issue.

FIL went in for surgery a couple of days ago, and recovery  is not as good as hoped for.  He is still at the hospital. (though progressing in a good manner) Another something that makes you 'think'...of potential loss and what is important in our lives.  What does it come down to?  This was esp hard on dh as he loves his parents, and though his mind knows goodbye is is still hard for him to accept.

Travel and trips are coming up and being planned.   If FIL recuperates in time, at the end of the month is a family reunion in Utah.  DH is planning to go.  I'm not, I get to go to the Endodentist to have my infection over my root canal taken care of...BUT there is a trip to Houston for me mid-March.

With my mom in the state she is in (Alzheimer's) , my sis is taking care of her...but I try to get down there and "relieve" her as much as possible.  So far, Mid-March, (her dds' spring break, so they can get away if possible)...Late May (her dd graduates)...just want to be available so sis does not have to miss out on these events.

Beginning May, DH is putting together a fisherman's retreat for the church guys at Hume Lake, then Mother's Day I am off for my own retreat (crop)...whoot whoot.  Wow, May is gonna be busy.

AND, dh and I are looking at a potential move for his business.  Dsil (son in law, here) is graduating from his Master's program in Nov...and going to move back to Texas quickly after. (siiigh, lucky kids, wish we were going to Tx)    2014 promises to be crazy.. busy... all the above.

Oh and over the weekend I did finish 2 books...nice, easy quick reads.

Now, IF only I could go into the craft room to do my scrapbooking, instead of only going in there to plan a Sunday School craft...siiiiigh.   Speaking of Sunday School, good news there.  With our potential move, we have been looking for a potential candidate to take the class.  Tweens are a tough age to find volunteers for, it takes a special person to work with them. I kinda think it has to be a grandparent, someone who has BTDT, you know, who understands this is a phase...  BUT we do have one ( a great guy) who is interested...and another who may like to move from the younger kids...  yay!!
