Aaron: (after noticing Zacks nails painted green) You aren't gonna become a drag queen are you?

Zack: Only on the weekends.

Lately I can't think of anything to write about on my blog. I haven't been taking any pictures lately. And it's so hot here!! It makes me feel so lazy and lethargic.

Here are a couple things of note:

Zack is going to be living in Utah full time in less than a week....I'm having mixed feelings about this. I'm so happy for him. I'm going to miss him. He's ready though....he is at that age where he really thinks he knows so much more than he really does. I remember being this age, I remember thinking the same thing. I find it so interesting that the older I get the more I find out I really don't know much. Anyway, like I said I'm happy for excited!! He's so talented and I know the future looks bright for him. I will miss him, terribly, but this is the cycle of it's his time.

Joe has been in Utah for a little over 5 weeks now. It's too long. I miss him and I know he's missing us. I also think he's driving my sister and my Aunt crazy. I'm so thankful to them though. I have been so sad to find out how much contention has been alleviated without him here. He is so intense and being his mom is emotionally draining!! That being said, I am his mom! I'm proud to be his mom and I wouldn't trade it for anything!! I love him...he's hard but he's mine! I can not wait to see him in just under a week!! woo hoo!!

My nephew Zane has been here for 5 weeks. I'm sure it's not been as fun for him as he was hoping...he's an only child and there is not really any privacy in a home with five other kids. I do think we've had some fun times and we will miss him when he goes. Here's one thing I've noticed about him....he's so polite to me and so helpful!!! I hope my kids watch and learn! Thanks Zaner!! (He really does hate for me to call him that, but he will always be Zaner to me).

Aaron is enjoying his new job. He's working in management at Noodles and Co. It's so him...he has missed restaurants. It's strange to adapt to him being gone so much after he was home so much.

I'm remembering just how hard sleeping during the day is during the summer....I love my schedule during the winter when everyone is at school....not so much when they are all home. I find it so hard to sleep. I feel guilty for not spending time with them.

Oh, I must mention this....I'm so excited to see my Utah friends for a good ole GNO. I am nervous though....I don't look as good as I want to. I've always fluctuated in weight and I'm on my heavier side right now. I'm mad at myself for not having the self control it takes to STOP EATING bad things!! I wonder why can't I be the girl who DOESNT eat when she's stressed instead of the girl that feeds her stress with food! But, I'm going to suck it up and try to suck it in and just have fun with my friends!! Thank you Lia for hosting!

Hopefully next time there will be pictures!
