Newest Build

David built this glider swing last weekend. I gotta say...he is so talented.
He did this by looking at a picture of one already made. I wish I had a gift like that.

P.S. Also take note of my lovely green backyard. Due to water restrictions and over 40 100 degree days, our grass looks like horses eat here. Hopefully with the cooler weather and God willing...a little rain, it will grow soon.

about the lack of posting. I haven't been feeling the best. Caught a cold, then I woke up with a terrible stiff neck and shoulders and today I noticed a nice bump behind my ear. Seems like hitting 41 totally disagrees with me so far. LOL

I hope everyone is doing well. I miss talking to my girls. I have been feeling somewhat down. I can't even find a part-time job. Seems most retail places want you to work all weekend. I just don't feel comfortable leaving my family on both days.

So, thats it. I am in a funk but hopefully it won't last long.
