I will just admit it right now.
Summer is a really hard time for me to blog.
I just can’t find time to sit behind my computer.
I hate to steal any time away from my kids and enjoying our summer.
(mustache contest at Swenson Family Reunion this summer)
I will also give myself credit; and say this has been a crazy summer.
I am proud of everything we have accomplished, and all we have done.
Right now, we are in the midst of celebrating birthdays.
For those of you who don’t know; 4 out of 6 of us have August birthdays.
I am hosting a huge family birthday party tomorrow for my 3 August birthday kiddos.
It is so nice to share a birthday party with family members.
I also have to tell you that after a few years of some problems with my neck; it has finally decided to go in to my left arm.
I am loosing some strength in my arm, and I have pain shooting down it constantly.
To be completely honest; sitting at my computer, typing this, is killing me.
I cried myself to sleep last night.
I felt a little sorry for myself, and have worries that blogging, and photography will have to go by the wayside for a while.
I have decided that I will still blog, but maybe keep my posts shorter.
Which you all know is hard for me; the proof is in this post.
I was also worried that I wouldn’t be able to hold my cute little nephews.
Maybe I could do it like the kids do and sit on the couch with a pillow under my arm to help support their head.
I am thankful for my husband who is helping me. He has a list of ideas lined up to help kick this pain out the door.
On a happier note, I am moving right along with getting the house just how I want. Thankfully I had that mostly done before this pain started to happen.
There is still much to be done, but I thought I would start with a little home tour so you could see what’s been going on around here.
I have to start this tour with pictures of the outside.
It is what drew me to this home. I think it is just beautiful.
I love craftsman homes. Our yard is still a work in progress, but it has so much potential.
My favorite part is seeing the beautiful Utah Mountains in the background.
We have such a gorgeous view from our house.
I enjoy sitting out on these rockers looking at this beautiful valley that we live in.
This is picture of one of the many beautiful sunsets that have happened since we have been here.
Ok, so next time I post we will go inside.
I know. I am being a tease.
I hope to be back at the end of next week when I get these kids off to school; and I will show you more.
Thanks for being patient with me this summer.
I miss being here.
