Trip posts are over. Man oh Man I thought they would never end.
SO very blessed and grateful I was able to go to each of those places...
In case you are new and are seeing nothing but vacations-- no no, I'm not a famous rich hot celebrity with endless money... We have been planning our Washington trip since last November when our original trip was canceled due to the storm of the century.  We planned it this week because it was my nieces spring break and we wanted to make sure and spend as much time with them as possible.  My trip to California was very last minute.  My Grandma has been declining in health in just the past few months. She took a big turn about a month ago and knew it was looking rather close to our trip to Washington and worried we should cancel to make sure we could be here for Grandma.  If it wasn't for 4 very upset nieces that would have officially disowned me if I had to cancel a second trip to see them... We would have done that a month ago.  We continued with our plans and Grandma ended up passing 2 days before we were set to leave. We missed her Utah funeral but I was lucky enough to attend the one in California.  Due to the fact we are not rich celebrity's and trying to move and pay for school we didn't have the money for Ryan and I both to go so it was just me along with my sisters.
I have been gone for 2 weeks with the exception of 1 night (less than 12 hours) home switching from one destination to another. I am now home. Loads of homework. Loads of laundry. A disgusting house. A very neglected dog. Over the last few days I have been working very hard to get everything back in order. But of course I have to have a million other things on my to do list that have kept me from getting back to "normal" however, I guess this is my normal.
Its Kenzie Day today. Kinda went a little nuts this month. I don't know what came over me. Have been having a really hard couple weeks with missing her so much. Guess I just want it perfect for her.
I missed 1 week of school. EEk... So homework has been my new partner. Only a few weeks left of the semester and I'm very worried about how I'm doing. Physics and Music Culture have actually been okay. I have been able to keep up with them fairly well. But Math. Good old. Thorn in my side Math. Pretty much is eating me alive right now. I'm studying like no body's business and I am still sinking quicker than I thought possible. I have taken this class before. Seriously-- I cant remember even a little bit of it. I'm not looking forward to the final. I'm just praying for a C...
Our house is still here. Unsold. Unloved. And totally ready for a new little family to move into it.
Come on. Don't you want to help a sister out. Buy my house!
There have been a lot of other things going on that have been making my brain hurt.
A few things new, a few things old and just things that have always been here.  But.  I am doing good.
Ryan is doing great. We are living and we are learning every single day.
Not only with our life without Makenzie but life with everything else we are juggling.
Remember this post...
Of course you do, it was only a day ago.
I'm not waisting time.
I am doing it.
I am doing.
I will keep doing.
Ill keep you up to date and give you more detail as time goes on.
I have to run. Decorating Cupcakes, Finishing Math, Project for Music and running to the store all need to be done in the next 2 hours...

What level math are you in? If you go to, they have some practice you can do, and there are youtube videos to help you with each concept. It goes up through Algebra and Geometry/Trig. So maybe it could help. Sorry for the grieving. It's hard, isn't it?

Tiffany said... absolutely AMAZE me every single day. MaKenzie is STUNNING! Just like her momma! :) I think about you guys every single day...even though I haven't technically ever met you. You write a lot like I do and so while I'm reading...I feel like I could hear you talking.

Math....I do NOT HEART it! Wish I could help you there. But just know that I'm thinking of you and your cute little Kenz and praying that she's close.

Loves to you!

Tiff Rich (Jack's mom)
