He just lost his wife April 25 to cancer - they have 4 kids, the youngest is going to be a senior in high school. Just too sad!!!
That is horrible, my thoughts are with that family.

It's going to be 90 here on Wednesday and I'm already sweating just thinking of it.

Good evening!
It seems that lately I haven't had as much time to spend here as I would like. This has been such a busy month. We have been to two graduation parties so far and we have three more to go. My husband and daughter will both be celebrating their birthdays soon. I'm also planning a barbecue for Fathers Day. The school year for the girls is coming to an end. We have another week of final exams and then there will be my daughters prom and high school graduation. We are excited and looking forward to it all, it's a good kind of busy!
I have decided to not accept the job offer at the doctors office. The job was only supposed to be a few hours in the morning, two days a week. I was already asked if I would be able to be more flexible and work afternoon/evening shifts and fill in for people when needed. Maybe someday I will be able to do something like that but I'm not ready yet. It's no wonder my username is HomemakinGirl. But I am happy I tried it, now I know.
Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well!
XO
