Has it been nearly a year??????

WOW! I am so bad about blogging! It is May of 2013 and I just checked to see what the last thing I wrote on my blog was.... getting ready for Ashley's wedding and other summer things! Now here I am getting ready for summer again! What has changed... well... not the leg. it still hurts but at least they took me off coumadin! Ashley and Alex are living in Denton and going to school! Andy moved to Durant and is driving up for work at TI. Steve and I are enjoying fixing up and cleaning up the house as well as playing with garden and flowers and things outside. One of this year's purchases was a tiller... Steve wanted to try his hand at a garden again... the tiller is great and the garden is bigger than I thought it would be.. but it is fun watching the tomato, corn, peppers, okra, garlic, onions and more get taller each day! The flower garden is pretty too.... roses are blooming front and back yard... the cannas are coming up as well as other bulbs that we planted... everything is turning pretty! We haven't really seen much of the old gang lately... I guess everyone is doing their thing and has gotten busy... kinda strange how that happens.... I guess as the summer starts I will be making some presentations, running tech camp and doing a few staff development classes...before you know it we will be starting a new school year... but before that I hope to just enjoy some down time with family and friends!

Summer begins.....

So after closing down my labs a week early I began summer vacation to prepare for Ashley's wedding! Steve and I spent the next few days buying and preparing food for the reception! The rehearsal went off great and so did the wedding! We had so much fun getting ready and the actual day of wedding was so awesome! Ashley was a beautiful bride! Everything was so nice and so many family and friends joined us! The next week as I tried to clean up around the house I noticed my left leg hurt like a cramp! Clean up was getting no where! That weekend Steve realized my leg was swollen and took me to doctor...that landed me in hospital from Saturday to Tuesday! I thought everything was improving...I had to cancel a staff development and get lots of help with tech camp...but things appeared to be improving....as the month ended I realized my leg was hurting up higher than before...bummer! Tractor pull and fireworks at Pecan Grove was fun....then friends and fun with fireworks were awesome at our house! Andy, Steve and Robby bought lots of pretty artillery shells and put on a great show! We got to see Ashley and Alex's Duplex today...the boys played some disc golf....but tomorrow it is back to normal schedule and I return to the doctor.....hoping for an easy fix! A little worried that I should pack my bag again......we shall see!

So much change!

So I just read through my last post! It has been a while! We lost mom December 2010. I miss her!
Ashley got engaged August 2011 and will marry Alex on June 2nd. She is finishing up a dental assistant certificate this month so hopefully will help her find good job while she is working on her dental hygiene school.
Andy has been looking for work and finally got on at TI through Volt. He is picking up everything so quick! Hopefully will turn out to be a good job for him.
The church did call a pastor.,,,and then there was a staff change. Steve went back out to TI to work and we have helped out a few churches with worship since June but mainly just lying low I suppose.
Really so much has changed since my last post! We got to buy a $6000 septic tank in December 2011....boy was that exciting....so now as we go into this spring the yard is still a bit of a mess!
Guess that is all for now....maybe it won't take so long until the next!

The last week....

Yep.. it is the last week of summer vacation... and how did it start???? Monday I worked all day training new teachers on some of the technology things they will need as they start the year.... more training will come on other things! Today, Tuesday, I ran to WalMart to get stuff to see if I can get my pool back in shape after leaving it too long so that I can enjoy some pool time!!! Monday night I had a worship leadership meeting...tonight I have a streetlight band meeting.. getting ready for the reunion! So pretty much that has taken up the first two days of the last week off!! LOL!!! Gee maybe tomorrow I will clean out cabinets or something relaxing like that!! hahahaha!!!
I haven't been able to see mom in a couple of weeks due to work one week and transportation craziness the other.... I guess she knows we are there when we come.. she usually just sits and sometimes opens her eyes... occasionally we will get her to answer a question...it is sad to see her so weary!
Ashley is still working two jobs and has cleared up some school finances so that she can register for this semester.. now we just hope tonight when she finally gets home that there are classes worth signing up for. I hate it took so long to pull all the money together.. she is driving my Tahoe and hoping to hear replacement info on her car soon so that she can move forward on getting something else.. I know she didn't want to have car payments.. but not sure of other choices!
Andy is still looking for work... today he went to restraunts to see if anyone was hiring.. not first preference but he is going a little stir crazy not having a job for a month!!
I will go back to work next Tuesday... not really ready... but hopefully will be a good year... I did better this summer not overworking myself.. but maybe did too good and enjoying being a lazy bum too much!!
Steve is still working hard at the church... will be glad when that creative pastor is found and comes in ready to lead the people back to being about prayer and community and worshiping together... I miss the days when we had so many people walking in the door to see what was different and finding themselves at the alter making changes in their lives.. I pray for that kind of church again!!! Wouldn't that be awesome... life changing
Ok.. enough blabbering.. must head to the next meeting.. until I think to write again!!

So it is August

Well... here we are in August... and down one more car! Steve went to Nashville last week for conference and while he was gone I got one of those phone calls you dread to get...actually it was a picture message.. even worse... someone ran a red light and hit Ashley's car...she is sore... car is prob totalled.. and a week later the insurance of the other car is saying we are not sure the driver is covered under our insurance! ugh..
Ashley's bday is today... hope to see her this weekend and wish her happy birthday...
Andy and I went to Branson last Friday and caught up with Steve.. we also had Tammie and Robby with us on vacation.. had a really great time riding Go Karts, Rollercoasters and seeing some great shows!!! Time to get away and laugh was awesome!
Almost time for school to start again..... much on our mind with the church needing a pastor... Andy needing a job and car... Ashley now needing a car (she got a second job) and getting Ashley's school money in place so she can get registered again this semester and then transfer to another school next semester..
Hopefully things will calm down a little in our world...

Hello July!

Well here we are in July.... something always seems to be changing around here! We brought in 4th of July trying to go to the tractor pull on Friday night.. but it was rained out before we arrived...so off to Olive Garden we went with Andy and Tiffany. On Saturday we rode bikes down to the new park and watched the Sherman Fireworks show. They did a great job! Sunday was a time of worship and praise in the morning... my heart is burdened for those that are hearing the Word of God and need to make a decision to accept him and make positive changes in their lives... the afternoon was full of friends around the pool! We ate and swam and the guys played a game or two of frisbee golf! Then as night fell the pops of fireworks began!
Kids were chasing parchute fireworks.. then sparklers and I hear a little bit of a roman candle war in the back with the BIG boys! haha.... don't come crying to me if you get hurt silly!!! Then the Weeks' and Friends show began... fountains and big pops ending with an awesome array of color in the sky... of course as always our neighbors were shooting off some pretty stuff too adding to a bright colorful night sky!
Monday was a sleepy sleepy day around our house... long weekend and late night made it hard to get motivated to do much. Andy had to report to work at 6am... that was tough one...
I am waiting to see if my last two tech camps will make at the end of this month. Steve is supposed to travel to Nashville this month for a songwriters conference... and then we are not far from starting another school year.
We didn't get to see Ashley and Alex this 4th.. we missed them.. I guess they were in Monroe, LA for celebrations.
I have a few more days of "vacation" time... so off to enjoy that time!

I am not keeping up!

Guess I am not keeping up with my blog very good! Here we are at summer! I am getting ready for a week of Tech Camp... I took Monday off and have worked the last two days setting up computers. It has been long hot days!
Well.. since my last post Andy has gotten a job at Home Depot and it seems like a pretty good job. Ashley has finished her semester of school really strong and is looking for a job to help supplement her other job that cut her hours back... hopefully something will come up soon!
The church is still looking for a lead pastor.. but hired Lisa as our Children's pastor and some exciting things are happening in Children's area... and Kelly and Taylor have picked up the youth area and lots of kids seem to be coming to that!

I guess I will be spending about 3 weeks of my summer plus a few extra days here and there on tech camp and leading staff development. Steve has a trip planned to Nashville for a singer songwriter conference.. I wish I could go with him!
We have had friends over a couple of times and swim in the pool! I am so thankful to God for the blessing he has given us to share like the pool.. it is fun to throw together lunch and just laugh and have fun with everyone!

I will try and post here more often if anyone wants to see what is going on in the Weeks' family!!!
