Just the fact that I am taking the time to post, even briefly is amazing!  I have so much to share and so much that I want to remember, but......I cannot run faster than I have strength and this pregnancy is really taking it out of me.  I am unable to do many things that I have to just put on a "someday" list and try my hardest to forget about them.  Not easy for my personality, but I am doing better (of necessity).

Today, though, I had a great time.  V and I drove over to visit my dear, dear friend that moved just over a year ago.  I am lucky in that we get to talk frequently and that we still see each other a few times each year.  Iit is always a treat to be able to be together.  I love her and respect her and just getting to visit was such a blessing to me.  Her kids adored V and just loved her so much.  It was wonderful to watch.  I cannot express enough how grateful I am that I went.  I am grateful that CK is always supportive and encouraging.  Such a blessing.  He helps me want to do things like this.  I am grateful.

It is kind of an odd week.  We had to say goodbye to A on Saturday, as she went back to her other home.  We also had to say goodbye to K, C, and J as they are on vacation with their dad for an entire week!  It is just V and CK and I.  Very quiet and very different than having all five kids running around.  I miss all four of them.  XDH has never taken his three for this long.  I am grateful that he is choosing to take time off work and make these memories with them.  I will be sooooooooooooooo ready to have them home and ready for them to be back, but, for now, I am grateful they can bond with Dad.

I just barely downloaded all 350-ish pictures from our Colorado, Utah, and Idaho summer trip, as well as all the rest of our summer activities.  -sigh-  I have a lot to catch up on.  One day at a time.  One day at a time.
