Life is Good

Garden progress is continuing rather slowly, but at least it is getting accomplished. If the wind stops blowing so hard, I plan on finishing planting the green beans. If the wind keeps blowing, I am going to head to the basement and watch t.v. How is that for taking my lemons and making some lemon aide?
We have a super busy weekend and I am trying to get myself together to make sure everything is in order. Our oldest son is graduating this weekend, and our third son is playing a travel ball tournament against his most feared opponents. To make things even more stressful, our son will be pitching for one of the games. I already have butterflies in my stomach over this! We will be having out of town family coming for both events. Too bad that the three ballgames are played an hour away at the same time the graduation is scheduled. Of course we will all be at the graduation except for our baseball player pitching to his most dreaded opponent. I feel like we have left him out to dry all alone since none of us will be there to support his efforts.
I was going to host a huge graduation dinner, but I knew when to throw up the white flag of surrender. I did that two weeks ago, and our graduate didn't mind one little bit. We offered to take him and his grandparents out to Carraba's as a celebration. He was good with that so I got myself off the hook for hosting a huge dinner. I will make a special cake for us all to enjoy later that evening. I don't like to say I can't do it all, but sometimes that is the only sensible thing to do. I don't like the fact that we can't be two places at once, but there are times that it just doesn't work out the way I would like.
I have worked on getting our house in order for our company so that the last minute cleaning thing won't be so overwhelming. I have also planned my menu and I will buy the groceries on Friday. If all goes well, I will bring two weeks worth of groceries home to a clean house! I will then bake a cake and greet relatives. I will then be watching my first born graduate and be wondering what my little man is doing on the pitcher's mound. Life is good, and I wouldn't change a thing...except the time of the graduation!!!!
grace and peace,

Sounds like we won't be hearing from you for a few days. Have a great weekend with family. Hope both events lead to wonderful memories. Don't forget to stop and breathe every once in awhile!

Wow you have my head spinning with all the hustle and bustle. Enjoy your relatives. We have a son graduating this weekend as well! When did our boys get to be young men???? Must have been when we had our backs turned, huh?
