I've had my toes in the water . . .

Because Facebook is so much quicker to update, and doesn't require much thought, my friends over there have had a bit more info about our goings-on the last month or so.


That doesn't help my blog-stalkers, though, does it? It also doesn't help with the end of the year journal - as missing a month isn't really ideal for cataloging our everyday life.


But, because Facebook is so easy, I'm going to cheat and use it to catch you up.


Here's what's been going on:


Heather Messer Missin' my guy on Father's Day - thanks for being a father and husband beyond anything I could have hoped for! Love you, babe :)

  • Matt and I were split up for the second weekend in a row - one of us at a baseball tournament, one of us at an art show.
  • The one who was lucky enough to be watching baseball was constantly trying to keep the other one up to speed via text message. What a frustrating way to "watch" a baseball game!

Heather Messer Gearing up for another baseball tourney this weekend - and somehow trying to fit in some time to work on the deck - we've got lots of bare foot kiddos coming for the 4th.

Heather Messer One 20-pound box of Klicker Straweberries later, and the weekend just got busier! Anyone have a great recipe for freezer jam/pie filling/etc?
June 24 at 2:51pm

  • We opted for freezing about 1/3, and strawberry jam and strawberry/rhubarb jam out of the rest. Yum!


Heather Messer Thinking of my friend Tom, and praying for him and his family. Hang in there, Tom. We love you, and are fighting right along side you!

Heather Messer The faint echoes of the Kelly Hughes band drift our way, as we bask in the radiant heat stored by the asphalt on which our RV sits, under the glow of the carnival's Gravitron. I am living in a romance novel. Good thing Prince Charming is right here beside me. July 10
  • Ahhhh, the joys of parking lot camping at the art shows. The carnie circuit is like no other . . .
  • At least Matt and I were in the same town for this one!

Heather Messer Oh my goodness, she's hot and she can wail! Mom, come check this out (as he rewinds Americas Got Talent). A blonde babe in a tight outfit? Nope. A 13-year-old cutie with braces and a headband. Am I really at this phase? Really?
