Pure Craziness...

I have noticed that I have become quite the blog slacker!! It's not because I don't like blogging, but because time seems to keep slipping away from me. Lots has been going on lately and I can't seem to find the time to do anything but that which has to be done. But for record keeping sake...this is what we have been up to lately...

#1 - Dad Martineau had a heart attack and ended up needing to have open heart surgery. Even though we are hundreds of miles away from them this has consumed quite a bit of our time and thoughts. It has been extremely hard for us to be so far away and yet it still consumes a lot of our time due to the constant worry!!

#2 - Brandon took a trip to Washington to, of course see his dad, but to also help his parents and his sister move to Nevada. It took them an extra day to get to Nevada due to weather they ran into on the drive down.

#3 - I went on a quick one day road trip to Las Vegas to pick Brandon and Miles up.

#4 - Maron turned 1 - Yes that is right! My baby girl turned one last Saturday. Where has the time gone? My heart breaks that this will be my last 'firsts'. My baby was suppose to stay a baby dang it!!

#5 - I am the new Cub Master. I am not gonna lie...I was NOT too excited about this calling since I didn't know the 1st thing about scouting. BUT....I put my big girl panties on and dug in! We just had our first Pac Meeting and I think I might end up liking this calling after all:)

#6 - Making the school my 2nd home...Our son Paul has always been a feisty one and we thought over time that might simmer down a bit. Don't get me wrong...we have seen HUGE improvements...but still have our daily challenges with him. Through fasting, prayer, temple attendance, and doctors we hope to some day know exactly how to help him. Until then, I will continue to spend my days popping in and out of the school!!

#7 - Taxes - I never look forward to this time of year when I must sit down for HOURS on end at the computer and put together our year end financials. You would think that I would learn to stay on top of it through out the year, but I don't. Rather, I sit here with a sore butt (which constantly hurts anyway from my broken tailbone) and try to do it all in one week!! You would think I would learn??!!

#8 - Photos...I of course continue to take and edit photos. I love this job, but am grateful for an occasional break in between sessions!!

So that is what we have been up to around the Martineau home! I will post pictures LOTS to post!!
