Is it summer?
The answer to this question I am not sure about because of the rainstorms we have been having about every other day. Now don't get me wrong, I am loving it!! I love waking up in the morning and stepping outside to just smell fresh air. I feel like I am up in the woods everyday. So I wonder why it just doesn't feel like summer even with the kids out of school.
Our anniversary was wonderful. Bruce took the day off for me, we took a city drive and went out to lunch. We ate WAY to much food and next time I need to remember to ask for a box even before I start eating. Then I can enjoy the rest the next day. I don't remember when we have had this much fun, really. For the last few years he has been out of town every anniversary so this was a treat. He didn't even answer his phone!!!
It has taken me 25 years to relize, that my husband is not one to follow what the world would say he should do for an anniversary, Valentine's Day or even Christmas. I can say that I'm finally okay with that.
I have been feverishly working on a few things to share so look for something special soon!

Twenty five years today, that is how long I have been married to my best friend, companion and lover.

We have lived in 4 states and 7 houses, three of which we bought....houses not We have owned 11 vehicles, I don't think I am missing any. We have had 4 beautiful children, two of which are on their own and two still at home.
I don't know what the future is going to hold but my Sweet Darlin' I'm along for the ride. You still make my heart flutter!! You are the love of my life and my dream come true!!

I suffer from..........

Procrastination! I guess I've never really wanted to admit it to myself. When I know I have to do important things I am forever looking for an excuse to do something else.

So when my teenage daughter brings me a doodle she did for me a few weeks ago, it started to wake me up, to what I was doing to myself and even to my family. It said; "Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today" Abraham Lincoln

Then this week I visited Laine's Scrap Happy site. Guess what she was talking about.....arrrgghhh. Okay, I get the idea already!! Hello world, my name is Juel and I am a full on Procrastinator!! She has a cute utube video on her site that pretty much says it all.

So this week I've started taking care of a few things that I have been putting off, what about you??

I have no idea what to do!

A week from today I will be celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary to a man that I love dearly(even when he drives me a little crazy) The thing is.............I have absolutely NO idea what to do, really I don't! This year marks a time when we will actually be together on our anniversary and that hasn't happened in YEARS, we are talking YEARS people.

Over our life together, I've made plans only to have him end of having to work out of town. The one promising thing was, last week his work told him he was going to have to be out of town for 3 days, one of those days being our anniversary. He in not so many nice words told them there was no way he was going to work out of town on his 25th wedding anniversary.

So I come back to the question my man asked me this morning, so do you want to do anything special next week because I can't think of anything. So much of our life for years has been put on hold, it comes to times like this that you realize that and you are thankful you are in a different place now. Where do you start when you are still a little afraid of your husband being called to go out of town, even when he told them he wouldn't? Do you go alone or take your teenagers with you because they are part of your life and you desire to not have them miss out on the fun too? We don't have friends or other family members to go out and celebrate with. This is a big day in our lives, a big milestone and it will be remembered for a lifetime. I know anything we do is going to be special but I just don't know where to start.
