i guess an update is in order

This week Randy went back to work. It's only temporary, but a huge step for him. It has been 6 months, maybe 7 months since this whole thing started, and he has finally gotten back on the horse. I know that concrete is not what he wants to do with his free time, but music isn't paying off yet, and it feels good for him to get out and stretch his legs. I know he's missed the guys too. They chose a small job to start with, just enough to keep the 2 of them busy without overextending him. He came home sick one day, but the home owner understood completely since he's gone through chemo himself. That actually cheered me up to see a cancer survivor...

So I've stayed busy with work, kids, and chillin out by the pool. There's something good about the sun, a cold drink and good book to cheer up. I still feel like life's out of control, but I'm starting to understand that it may NEVER change. What can you do but just go with it. As long as I get to spend quality time with my family, friends and God, I think I may just make it through the craziness. 12 more days of school! woohoo. I get my kids back and on MY schedule. No more getting up at 5:30. That'll help things.

Looking forward to a fun weekend. Plenty of time in the sun for sure. Let's see how much trouble I can get myself into....

Laura and I have been following your 'life' from afar. The courage you guys are showing is amazing, and your honest reflections are a great testimony to the love that God shows us even when we feel we are at our lowest.
Know that we are praying for you guys. The Big Man is amazing and is doing amazing thing through all of this.
