This was in very good timing too because Oregon got hit very hard a few days later with tons of rain and lots of flooding.
People like to complain about the rain here in Oregon, but it's because of the rain that Oregon is so green and beautiful. It doesn't bother me too much, I kind of like it, especially when I'm snuggy in my house. I love the way it smells when it first starts raining. Sometimes when we have many weeks of it without letting up, I will get a bit tired of it, but usually I like it.

|Me at work August 2011|
Oh my goodness, I have had a crazy busy week! Not only have I worked my regular shift of three days this week down at the doctor's office, I also worked an evening clinic on Wednesday night.
|Me cooking dinner September 2011|
I continued with my regular weekly duties at home such as making dinner, baking, doing paper work and cleaning. On top of that I had four meetings this week! Two of them were Monday night; a work meeting right after work from 5:00 to 6:00 and then a Grad Night Committee meeting, in which I am the secretary, from 7:00 to 8:30.
On Wednesday night I had a Mr. Bulldog meeting for my son at the high school from 7:00 to 8:00. This is a fun program where a group of 10 boys all work hard and put on a show to earn money for the neonatal unit at our local hospital.
Last night Hayden and I went to meeting at the high school for his physics class for an upcoming big field trip they are taking to San Francisco. Wow, four meetings in four days, I'm bushed!
Oh, and I don't want to forget that Tuesday night we went to Hayden's basketball game.
Yesterday was my day off from work, but my day was very busy. Hayden is hoping to play college football and he finally got his football highlight video completed and loaded on the internet.
We spent the morning going through the college information and I helped him fill out the recruitment applications. There is a lot of things involved with this and we got the first one done, boy does that feel good! Now it's in God's hands and it would be so wonderful if he got an offer to play football! He's still going to apply at several more colleges, so we will see how things turn out!
Life is certainly busy, but I am truly grateful for all the blessings I have. I just need to take one day at a time, one moment at a time and pray that God gives me the strength that I need. I really want to enjoy these times.

We went to the employee break room and talked for about twenty minutes and sipped coffee. It was so nice to catch up with him. What a fun surprise this was. I am so blessed! I love that boy!
