I haven't been able to decide if I should just blog something lighthearted and fun or delve into all the stress that's been going on around here, but I feel bad that I keep doing nothing on my blog. I haven't even been taking pictures lately, so I have no new things to post there. The bottom line is that we are trying to make a lot of difficult decisions right now about where our kids will go to school next year, if we are truly going to sell our home, and where we should be raising our family. The problem is that we can make a pretty good case for staying--and for leaving. On any given day we change our minds and we don't want to make a decision based on emotions.
I am feeling the stress of having to manage everyone's schedule and I just don't think I can do it again.

Mary finished preschool last week and I completed my last day on Tuesday. Brian will be done on Thursday of this week and Elijah still has school until the next Monday.

My mil and I tried to go camping this weekend with my kids, but Emily was being a booger and making it not so much fun for us, so I brought her home yesterday. The other two should be home later today. I'm having a hard time feeling like I'm on vacation yet because half of our family is still trying to maintain a schedule, so I feel like I'm in this weird limbo state.

So, that's kind of whats going on here. My garden is looking good and we've been enjoying lots of lettuce and spinach. The sugar snap peas should be ready by the end of next week. I planted 16 tomato plants behind the garage. I'm looking forward to a big canning season this year! And thinking about picking some berries for jam tomorrow.

We're still here

Things have been a little rough lately and I haven't felt much like blogging--I'm sort of just barely making it through my daily routines right now. But the end of the craziness is near. Very near. Only 5 more days for me, so I'm sure I'll perk up once summer is here.
