Another week...


well, another week has passed in the Garff house and it was a bit of a crazy one. Ivan has been acting out more and more. I hope it's just because he is turning 3 soon. They say terrible two's but I think three is worse. This week has been lonely here in Tooele. There is plenty to keep me busy but not enough to keep my mind busy. I guess I need a good book or something to pull me away from my little world for a while. The weather has been chilly so there is not a lot to do outside. It doesn't seem to stop my kids however, I had to make them come in from playing in the snow. I keep myself and the babies cooped up inside however because they have been sick all spring. By babies I mean Nora and Carter (the little boy I babysit). Lately it has been very hard to be out in Tooele. I miss my family very much. Usually the distance does not bother me but it has been weighing on my mind. I think because it was an exceptionally hard week. It would just be nice to escape to my moms house for a while. I have missed my husband very much this week too. I wish so badly that he could have taken the week off to be at home. I know we are a huge demand on his time and he worries about us a lot when he is at work. I don't feel like I have a lot of friends here right now and so that is frustrating too. I guess I just need a little pick me up. I just have to remember that we are extremely blessed. Or as I like to put it, we are Blessed recipients of goodness. I am so grateful for my husband and my children. Although we have our hands full as a family, we have fun with one another and we love one another and express that love often. I am so grateful for a husband that calls to me from the kitchen just to let me know he loves me. I am grateful that it has rubbed off on me and I do the same with my children. God has truly blessed me in my life. Although I am lonely and a little sad a lot of the time it is not for lack of love from my family. For those of you reading this from afar, i.e. Iowa, I love you and miss you very much.

So your post made me sad. You need to pack up all the kids this week and come over. Just to get out of the house. Or we can meet at the park or something. Give me a call.
