This morning I put my hair in a ponytail with Kaelynn's purple ponytail holder that has a lovely purple flower on it (don't even try to visualize). For breakfast I ate the last container of Kennedy's Gerber Stage 2 bananas, and loved em. Afterwards I brushed my teeth with a "mystery" toothbrush-not sure which grandchild it belongs to but I will say it HASN'T been used very much! I am sorry to whomever is using mine. I just finished tearing out more pages of flower bouquet ideas for Jordan's November wedding, while finding a place to keep baby bottles, spoons and a pacifier I just found in the couch cushion. I am still looking for my scripture markers I let Kaelynn color with. And before I step outside to mow I am putting "Just for Kids" cutter family mosquito wipes on. Just a few leftovers at our house from visits of the past few weeks. No wonder I miss home and family 650 miles away!!!OK I admit I do whine a lot about missing home, family and friends. As I was mowing, I told myself to be more positive and think of the things I love, OK like, about our new "ADVENTURE" so here goes.... . .I like the weather. Even though it is hot right now, the weather is great.... I like the church here. Very friendly, non judgemental, funny, laid back, Christ loving people.... I like Sonic Happy Hour. Don't tell me you have it too. I like to think I'm special.... I like our neighbors. We were invited to an engagement dinner after just barely meeting our next door neighbors. Our backyard neighbors (no alleys) live in California and have been here a total of two weeks in the last year.... I like no alleys. I really do!!!... I like that I can finally grow crape myrtles. I know you people in Amarillo can too-Kim-but this is my only shot. They practically grow wild here.... I like that Wes' office is 10 minutes from our house. It's only 7 if I drive it.... I like that we have a fun place for family and friends to visit.... I like that you can wear flip flops all year long.... I like that I found C.A.S.A... I like it that I am a dolphin trainer. I DO have a certificate!!!... I like it that I haven't yet met a rude teenager here. I am sure there are some, but so far so good... I like it that when I got caught dumping my grass clippings in the empty corn field across the street, I didn't get in trouble. Is that wrong? Wes does it.... I LOVE it that I now know how much I love and appreciate my family and friends. I may have never had the chance to really know how important they are to me!!!! Wait, did I just count my blessings?
