It's the little things.

As you all know Bryce is traveling for work right now. He is a coal miner. So he leaves and then shortly returns to us. He loves coming home because he is like a serious rock star when he drives up. We all run out to the truck and smother him with kisses. It's a great night for all. But really it's the little things about my husband I miss. It's the sit on the couch and just hold me as we talk before bed every night. It's the waking up to my love I miss. It's the help with the kids while I make dinner I miss. It's the empty spot at the dinner table I don't like. It's the daily showers we have together. Sorry if that is TMI but it's true. It's the fact that I have to wash my hair by myself. Which I have not done for 14 years. It's the reading to the kids before bed that I miss seeing. It's the I need your help with this or that I miss hearing. I am really a blessed woman to have Bryce in my life. He is my rock. Perfect by not means but perfect for me. I love him with all of my heart. We have literally grown up together. This August we will celebrate 20 years together. And in December we will be married for 15 years. And guess what? I would, DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN. In an instant. I would live this life though not perfect or even easy at times again with my Love. He completes me. In ways I never dreamed he would. So if you have a special someone in your life. Hold them tight tonight. Kiss them an extra time. And Bryce when you get here on Thursday, I will be waiting:))

Still a Blogger......

Well am I? I mean it has been so long since I have blogged. Am I really committed to this? Well let me reassure you that YES I am!! I have just been crazy busy. Sometimes life happens. Sure glad no one really rely's on this blog for life. Like if PW took time off. People would maybe stop cooking, or taking pictures. But no pressure P-Dub you take time off if you need it. OK I wrote to her like she was going to read that. Back to my family and friends that do come see what's going on. I am here for you. I love each and every one of you. Now for my excuse......It might be good and then again maybe not. I have been a little sad. You see we still have not gotten our pics off our old computer. And that is where I would look at pics, then blog. And since I don't have that anymore I sulked. But no more! I am back with things to say. And some of you just want to hear me talk...Right? OK don't all answer that. You want to no what has been going on here? Let me tell you some stuff. My kids are growing. Colin just turned 11 and with that became a cowboy. Guess he didn't get the memo that clearly states that we are not Wrangler wearing people. But he has boots now and calls his new clothes: "My Cowboy Outfit" Some cowboys may not appreciate that. Tanner, well he is still my free spirit. In a good way of course. He is just so laid back easy going. He loves to sleep with us still, and sit on top of us if he can. I love that he still wants to be so close. Does a Mama good. Owen my sweet baby boy has grown up. He NO longer wants me to call him. Mama's Honey Sugar Sugar Mama's Baby Boy. I can call him Honey Sugar but I MUST leave out the baby part..... Makes me so sad. Because as you all no Owen is still so little. It's easy to call him baby. The fact is he IS my baby boy. But none the less he wants to grow up. He wants to stake his place in this world of Men. So I will let him grow up and still be his Mama:) Lucy where do I begin? Well first of all she is a Coal Miner's daughter. More on that in a bit. She is almost 4. So lovely, and fiesty. We are working on the fiesty. She is with mom or dad at all times. It is hard but we are making progress. We are almost done with school. This had been our BEST year to date. I finally took the pressure off myself and lived. And we have been more productive than when I was stuck to my schedule. Are all schedules bad? I say NO! Some people need them in their life to get perspective. I needed one, and now not so much. We try to keep one still just not so bound. We have two calves again. They were escape artist, but now they are eating grass in the land like they are suppose too. Bryce has a new job. He is now a Coal Miner. Sounds scary. But I am not afraid. He will be driving a HUGE truck. He will be working out of town. But the shock has worn off. I now feel like I can do this. At first I was devastated. We have a plan. And I have great friends to help me if I need it:) I have still been working out. I did day 109 this morning. I have lost a total of 12lbs. lost 2 inches in my waist. And overall feel AMAZING. Don't know why it has taken me so long to tend to myself. But I am so glad that the Lord never gave up on me! So there you go. A brief story about where we are:))
