I have been in contact with people in the past few weeks that I have not talked to in years and it has made me reflect a little- I have come to realize, once again- that I love my life, family, Jen and overall I am in a good place in my life! I am happy with the choices I have made, let go of hurtful things from my past and hurtful people, and I just want to add peace and joy to people I am in contact with. I have really enjoyed talking to an old friend Patty- nice catching up.
My parents came to visit from Hawaii for a night- they were able to go to all 4 of the boys' football games and they all won- so it was great! Sad news is they are thinking of moving away from Hawaii and back to the mainland. We will sure miss seeing them in Maui- but will get to see them more once they move. This season of their life is coming to a close. I think of life a lot more in seasons.
The season that Jen and I have shared for the past 10 months of her being layed off is also coming to an end- as she begins her new job as a correctional officer in 1 short week. I have enjoyed having some one on one time with her. Her last job really drained her- so it has been great to see her get back to the old Jen.
Bryce went to Homecoming- he is growing up. His date was beautiful and they had a great time. Last year he went stag- I think stag days are behind us now. Another season over.
Toby is an animal in football- for the second week in a row he has gotten the MVP award. The gas man came to our house the other day to change out our meter and he asked me if I was Toby's mom- I said yes and he told me that Toby was a natural at football and I needed to nurture that talent. It was a little weird that s total stranger knew my son!
I hurt my finger when I went shooting with Jen- I got a blister on my trigger finger. I just don't think I am made for shooting. Probably never gave this season a chance!
I appreciate all of you!
