I haven’t posted for a week, because I have seriously had no free time!
Did I tell you that Rosie’s fiance, Anthony, is staying in our guest room? He’s been here for almost a month, and it’s completely awesome having him around. But we hang out with him in the evenings, and that gives me less time to blog.
Last weekend we went back home and built a deck on my parents’ house. When I say “we” I don’t mean me, of course. Me? Build things? Anthony led the project, and my dad, husband, and brothers did most of the work. Rosie and Katie helped a lot. I helped hardly at all. But it was a busy weekend anyway, with no time to blog.
One of the busy things last weekend was that Maggie went to her senior prom. If I had pictures on my computer I’d post them, but I don’t. Trust me when I tell you that she looked absolutely beautiful. She wore this dress. It’s from a Mormon dress company (Mormons have some kind of rule about covering their shoulders) and is very well made, and was stunning on her. You can read about her experience on her blog (link to the left).
She also graduated from high school. Commencement was Wednesday night. I'm really proud of all her honors and awards, but I'm even prouder of the person she is. I wish you all could get to meet her. Here's a picture of the whole family:

I'm loving my new job, although it, like the rest of my life right now, doesn't leave me a lot of time to blog. It's a very casual atmosphere, definitely the most casual office I've ever worked in, and the smallest. Rob (the attorney I work for) was renting office space to a few other attorneys, but they've just moved out, so now it's just him, his secretary, and me. It's the first job I've had where the days actually speed by, so that at the end of the day I can hardly believe eight hours have passed. In my other jobs, even the ones I liked, I was counting the minutes until I got to leave. So, yeah. This one is going well. I think I'm going to be happy here.
Just to give you a clue how crazy things are - I've been writing this entry in paragraphs all day. I'm at my parents' house now, and we've just finished a rousing game of charades. It'll be bedtime soon.
I really love you all, my readers, so please don't be upset that I haven't posted, and love me back anyway.
