Random Ramblings of My Life . . . or Congratulations, Yikes! And How Am I Going to Do That?

Truthfully, I should be cleaning. Or at least I should be finishing the cleaning job I started about an hour ago. But here is a confession. I am an 80 percent-er. I will give my very best effort until a job is about 80% done and then I totally lose interest and wander away, quit, take a nap, or, in this case, write a blog post.  I am afraid if I don't change I am destined for the terrestrial kingdom.

But . . .  so many things to write about. . . . For example, take my son Ryan. He will officially graduate from ASU Thursday--with honors!! He isn't walking though due to the fact that he is already working full-time, but this is a huge accomplishment for him and we are SUPER proud of all he has done.

(He is the big one:-) I LOVE this picture of Ryan and his first son, Enoch. It just warms my heart.

And see these girls?! They are my babies. 
The one on the right is going to graduate from high school in about three weeks. She will then go to work for her father full-time and leave me home alone to do all the packing and cleaning. 
But I am not bitter . . . :-)

And see the one on the left . . . Well, she is going on a mission!!  
She is still waiting to meet with the stake president, but her papers are in to the bishop. We are so excited for her. That means there will be three of us in the family serving full-time missions at the same time. But it also means that by the time she gets her call, I will have about three weeks to move out of my house, help Kristen with her twins, buy everything Michelle needs for college, and get Kathryn all ready for her mission.

And considering I am an 80 percent-er, it also means that after about 2 1/2 weeks I will be ready to run away to oh, I don't know . . . maybe Mexico. :-)

Okay, time to get back to work. There are still closets that need cleaning, drawers that need sorting, dishes that need packing . . .
