I'm Back!

It has been an interesting few months. I am now back at work for the first time in two years. My brain has moments of recognition but they are few and far between. Having children zapped a few of those brain cells - at least that's what I can blame it on.

We can now call ourselves the traveling circus. I work for a company that builds natural gas pipelines and we work all over the country. Right now, we are hanging around Louisiana for a while. It's always fun to see and discover new and interesting places. As long as there is a Starbucks in the driving vicinity I will survive.

I have been offered a few new "delicacies" down here in the South. However, my rule of thumb is: If you can't pronounce it - don't eat it. So far, I can't pronounce these words, so I grin and say, "no way!"

My kids have been crammed in our fifth wheel, bursting at the seams. The playground calls their name on a continual basis and we get over to it as often as we can.

I miss home, but I know it will be there when we return.

I laughed at the familiar "I've lost brain cells!" comment. I've had four boys and let me tell you, this is a true phenomena.

Your kids find your brain cells and then when it is time, they lose them to their kids and you, as Grandma get them back. Or something like that!

Proverbs 16:3

Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established.
