Horrible

Yep, that's what I've been at this blogging thing for the past few months. Just plain horrible. My only explanation is that my little bro-in-law left on his mission today. In fact, he's going into the Missionary Training Center in Provo right this very minute. I'm not there because I needed to be at work and said my good-byes last night.

Anyway, since he was leaving we've been doing everything under the sun with the in-laws to share the last few weeks we had with him before he left for the next two years. During that same time period we had a few baby blessings, a baptism, my sister and her family came to visit for almost two weeks and my grandpa passed away. It's been a pretty eventful, emotional, stressful and hectic time. I didn't even talk about work, church, making a video, swim lessons and Kaylee starting kindergarten. These are all things that I plan on catching up on since everything is over now. I think our lives might, just might, get back to somewhat normal. Is that too much to ask for? Normal? You know, like when I go to work and can come home to see my wife and kids and have dinner, play with the family, put the kids down and have some time with Jess? I can't remember the last time that happened, but I'm really looking forward to it. Maybe I can actually take Jess out for our anniversary that was last week.

So be prepared to be amazed at the amount of blogging that takes place in the next week or so. It might surprise you.

wow! sorry to hear about your grandpa, I know he was a really important part of your life. As far as normal goes, I'm pretty sure that doesn't exsist.
