Girls Night Out! That's the official name. I'm not sure who decided this was going to be a continuous thing, but I'm glad they did. I have to say it is the thing I look forward to the most (out of all my social activities).
The women that I get together with are some of the most incredible women I know. We have laughed together, cried together and acted like petty, gossiping teenagers together. The loyalty I feel for these women I can't put into words. Something recently happened to one of them that was truly devastating and I felt like it happened directly to me. I felt as protective as a mother bear and wanted to rip out the throats of all of those people that were responsible for her pain.
The women in this group all have a different story to tell, some struggle in their marriages, some with there weight, some just struggle to pull themselves out of bed in the morning, but somehow we have all found a commonality that pulls us together and bonds us forever.
I feel I can tell these people anything. I truly trust them (probably more than family). They are some of the most honorable and noble people I know. Let me just tell a little bit of some of the things we have gone through together. Divorce, miscarriages, hospital stays (near death, whether she admits it or not), loss of parents, moving away (but keeping in touch, I hope), major illnesses, devastating diagnosis', struggles with children, marriage, and four years of a very large roller coaster ride that comes with all of the ups and downs you could imagine.
I just want to thank these women for helping me to grow, to really know compassion, to have patience, bite my tongue, and endure to the end.
I love you guys!

Long Time No Blog

I realize it's been a while since I have posted a blog, but honestly up until this week there hasn't been a lot going on. However, this week has been more than enough drama for anyone. First off my sister came in on Monday morning then on that same day a very sad thing happened to one of my founder friends. Let's just suffice it to say that when some people get a little bit of power they make sure everyone around them knows who is in charge, and will do whatever it takes to keep people from standing up for what they believe in.
Then our friend Brian's friend has come here to stay for a while because her ex husband has taken her children and she doesn't know where they are, and she can't deal with it on her own. Poor girl. I can't imagine the pain she is in right now.
Also, my kids started school this week. I should be excited but with everything else that is happening, I just want to crawl back in bed when they leave and not get out.
I will try and get back into the swing of things and get to posting some more blogs, here and there.

The Summer

So this summer has been rather uneventful. There is not much to write about.We did T-ball and a tennis camp we have gone to Lava Hot springs and Boise we also went to Island Park, but overall it has been a very low key summer. The kids start back to school next Wednesday and I'm of two minds about it. I'm excited to have a few hours a day with nobody fighting or arguing. However I am not looking forward to homework and bed time and waking kids up in the morning and pulling myself out of bed in the morning.
My sister is coming up next week for 5 days, that should be some fun. We are planning on going up to Yellowstone for a day with them.
