But...as a reminder that life can still be great, we got a visit with our little Skye last weekend. This is Russell's daughter - isn't she adorable? Here she is with Grandpa: Love that smile!! And here she is with me...and Sydney. Sydney seemed to have a hard time staying out of the picture for some reason. I think maybe Skye had been slipping him cookies when I wasn't looking.
Desiree' and I are driving to Oklahoma tomorrow to spend the weekend with my dad and stepmom. My sister is flying in from Florida, too, so it should be a fun time. Dad's always been a huge fan of Star Trek so our plan is to take him to see the new Star Trek movie. We're hoping to get to visit with some cousins, too. I haven't been up there since November. I had planned to go back in February but things got in the way and here it is almost June. Time goes by too quickly, doesn't it? Anyway, I hope to have lots of pictures to post when I get back and - even more importantly, as far as I'm concerned - I hope to be in a better frame of mind so that I can get back to visiting with all of you! I need to start making some lunch arrangements with my blogging friend Kat for my visit in July (I'm really looking forward to seeing her again!). Oh and I just found out that Randey and I will be traveling to Ohio in October so I will (hopefully!!!) get to meet Joan and Susie Q up close and in real life then. Exciting stuff, isn't it? It's good to have fun things to look forward to. And it's good to want to look forward again.
