The sun is shining today!

I'm hoping the day will come soon when I will be able to spend more time writing something that is really worth reading. My weekends are filled up with cleaning. Starting in March (tomorrow) I will not be cleaning offices in the morning, so perhaps it will give me some extra time - if I keep getting up early...

I have been missing Arizona and Mexico a lot lately because the weather here has been gloomy for a long time. But... this morning the sun has come out and it looks like a different place altogether.

In my mind I am already planning a trip to Arizona and Mexico. I think it has to do with the fact that for over 10 years in May or June we would travel to Oregon. So, it seems strange not to travel anymore. Also I miss some of my friends in Arizona. I may or may not go this year. I am leaving it in God's hands and will see how things develop.

I'm still alive

I don't write much on this blog because my life has been very ordinary for quite sometime. I also haven't had a lot of time to write. I still clean 3 mornings and 2 afternoons by myself at offices. On Friday I clean 2 houses. On Saturday I have a new house I am cleaning. Then Saturday afternoons I help the family clean the bank,insurance office and lawyers office, if they aren't done.

I have been trying to cook better meals, keep our house cleaner and help the kids more with their school work.

The family is doing great. Levi and Gideon are making a super-water-cooled computer system. They also do Algebra together and other school work. They help Greg with different jobs he has: tree trimming, construction, fencing...

Susannah has been taking gymnastics for about a year. She just got promoted to "team" and goes 3 times a week for 3 hours each time. It is a good PE class and she really likes it.

Right now we have a temporary membership at the RAC (athletic club). I competed again for the "Free throw challenge". Last year I won (in my age and gender) with a whopping 5 out of 25! This year I made 8, but don't know if I won yet, as I think there was someone else competing. Last year I was the only one in my age :(

It is raining here and I am missing Arizona and Mexico a lot these days. The winters here are very long. I got used to LONG summers for 10 years and it is still hard to adjust.

I will try to write more often here. So, until next time... adios!

I caught the cleaning bug...

This morning I went to Hamleys'coffee shop with Greg before my house cleaning job. After that I went to pick Lynn up so, as we were going to drive together to clean her mom's house. Fog made driving a little dangerous, so I went slow. Lynn's mom's house looked much better when we were done. We ended up only working 2 1/2 hours, as her mom needed a nap. It looks like I will be cleaning there again in a couple of weeks. Any work I get right now is a blessing. Hopefully we'll pick up some more janitorial accounts this month also.

I must have caught the cleaning bug, as I cleaned our house for a couple of hours after I got home. Then I took a hot bath to wash all the dust mites off me. Just joking - but maybe not.

Susannah and I played Rummikub for about an hour or so. She said, I thought you were going to do blogit? I said that I wanted to play Rummikub with her more. It was fun and she won! (I came in second) That game makes you think!

My oldest son and daughter-in-law found a used piano in a nearby town. My husband took his pickup and helped them go get it. Now she can fill their home with beautiful music.

Tomorrow while many are watching the Super Bowl, we are taking a drive to the mountains so the kids can play in the snow. We'll have a campfire and roast hot dogs and make smores and just relaxing. I might make "hobo stew", an easy meal that is cooked in the coals.Maybe I'll have time to finish the book I started 3 weeks ago, while sitting around the campfire.

When we get back, Greg does plan to watch part of the Super Bowl with a friend.
