HI to all my artfriends.........sorry I kinda been falling flat in the bogging. I am almost as bad about blogging as I am about writing in a journal. life is wizzing by as usual. oldest son, travis is home for a visit. kryston, tyler and megan have moved into a very nice town house apt. they even have a garage.........big time improvment over their last place, not counting home of course. lol kryston and the people she works with have left their old company and formed a new one on their own. they were lucky enough that most of their clients followed them. she really enjoys working with develomentally challenged adults and she is good at it. tyler is still plugging away at walmart and is doing well there. he is still trying to decide if he wants to go to the CHP academy when he turns 21, or if he wants to go to school to become a physical trainer. he would be great at either. megan was promoted at her job to asst. manager, she works at a maternity shop in the mall. travis has been working in sanjose at a construction job. tony is in arizona finishing his time in the army. he is going to be a dad too. bill has become the incredible shrinking man. his ankle has done so well that he is able to work out at the gym and ride a bike often with some of our friends. he has lost 50+ pounds and is looking amazing. I am still plugging away in the pool. I am even able to ride a stationary bike that you don't use your arms, for some times. I have lost almost thirty pounds now. much slower than bill, but as long as I keep getting smaller, I am ok with that. with the spring and now summer weather, I am a much happier person. enjoy the warm weather so much more. the whole family has been passing a flu, back and forth. bill and I have not been as bad off as the kids, but just have no energy and a sore throat. tyler and megan are taking a trip to her home in oregon for her little sisters graduation. they are looking forward to that. bill, kryston and I are traveling to ukiah for our nephew caleb's graduation. that will leave my only niece amy still in school. she will have two more years to go. wow the kids have all grown up. bill and I have been watching our kids friends little girl off and on. krystal was in tyler's class and blue was in travis' class. their baby girl kasi is almost 6 monthes old now. they do not live far from us and when their jobs overlap, we look after her. she reminds me of kryston when she was a baby. never cries, never fusses and is a beautiful little girl. because my neck is always an issue with me, bill has been the one to lift her and do alot of the work with her. been awhile since either of us took care of a baby, but she is such a doll, that it is pretty easy. her mommy lived with us for awhile when she was young, and so it is kinda like having a grand baby. I have also been working on different art projects and things to sell in my shop as well as my sites where I swap. sooooooo life is busy as usual. I promise to get on and blog sooner next time...........really!
