It's Been a While...

So...where to start?

Nothing new. Working. With that...trying to keep sane raising 2 young children, working 40 hrs. a week w/ an hour commute each way, trying to lead a healthy lifestyle w/ diet and exercise, keep up with Chase's hockey schedule, & find some time in the midst of everything to relax.
Oh, also just found out my car is junk! Apparently it was in an accident before we bought it...most of it is made of bondo...therefore, the body is falling apart. We were not in the market for a new car for me...this one was supposed to last me for the next 5-10 years. Grrrr....
Ooh, Ooh! I really want to chop my hair off...bob-like.
Another thing...Tony and I went to Cozumel in early February through my work. It was actually a lot of fun. We are very blessed to be involved with such a great company:

Working. Coaching Chase's hockey. Was in the market for a boat...scratch that...a car. Again, Grrrr.

In Kindergarten, and loves it! He only goes every-other day, but would love to go everyday! This year was his first year playing hockey for Princeton...doing very well:)

A 2-year-old almost potty-training...depends on the day. She loves anything "princess"...she is our "princess." Yesterday she was wearing a pink skirt, a orange & pink Las Vegas shirt, light purple sweater, a princess crown, & her Cinderella heels. PRICELESS!

R.I.P. Uncle Bob...

Robert E. Forrer
At just 59-years, my Uncle Bob died on Sunday, August 23rd...
He was rollerblading w/ his oldest daughter, Denise, and was struck-down by a car.
So dad's youngest brother...
He will forever be in our thoughts and memories...
I pray for his wife, Janine, and daughters; Denise, Kim, and Jenny...I cannot imagine their grief.
God has him now...he is safe.
Love you Uncle Bob!

4th of July,
Chase learned to water ski!!!!
I also learned to drop a ski...and eventually, after falling 8 times,
I learned to start on one ski & slalom!
I am not a very athletic person,

I love you Tony!

Update on the whole edit wrenches...even though I tried signing out of my blog, closing the browser, and restarting my computer...then going back to "view my blog" w/o signing in...those wrenches were still there (last Friday).
Now, (4 days later)...they are gone. Of course, they are there if I am signed-in, as usual.

Really, I am not crazy!

What a load off!

Thanks, Jaime

Any suggestions/advice is much appreicated.
