It’s just me

Good evening to everyone! I need to shoot out an apology. I’ve had many calls and I have not returned yet and I’m sorry. I’m still adjusting to being a single parent and juggling everything at once. I’m especially trying really had to make sure the ball that doesn’t get dropped is the boys. I know there are times when they want more mom time, but there’s only so many hours in the day. I’m realizing that sometimes there are some things that just are not going to get done. So to those of you who have called or emailed, I’ll catch up with you soon.

This weekend I worked and Grandpa and Grandma spent time with the boys. We planted the first tree in memory of Chris in our backyard. It’s a Colorado Blue Spruce (Thank you King and Bowman families!) We are planning on doing a few more(our backyard really only has one tree and it’s dying.) The boys helped me and Grandpa dig the hole and get it planted-along with looking for worms in the dirt. We washed cars this evening after I got done with work. Or I should say we had a water fight. I decided that by the time I pay for all the water, it would have been cheaper to go get it washed! While running on the wet, slippery blactop, Jaxson took a digger and scraped up his knee, hip and elbow. Oh, to be 7 again!
Next weekend is the annual Baty garage sale. My mother-in-law Karen, Rick and Karen’s cousin Bette will down to help out. And of course I have my two little helpers. We’re just going to do that on Saturday.

That’s all for now. Have a good week!
Hugs and prayers!
Karen

    Hearing about Jaxson’s scrape reminded me of the times we would hear about you, Sarah, or Jennifer getting banged up over the years . . . from Grandma, of course. :0) Maybe that’s why you put, “oh to be 7 again.”

    Have been thinking of you a lot lately and praying for you.

    Good luck with the garage sale,

    Cheryl

    Karen,
    I’m glad we had a chance to visit yesterday. I was not aware of Chris’s passing. We will continue to have your family in our prayers. We are close by and look forward to helping your family in whatever manner we can as you adjust to a new normal.
