King of the Jungle

Sorry this is so late. If you have 5 minutes to enrich your life with the joy of parenting a star!

I know it seems as though I have abandoned the entire blogsphere, but fear not, I have been lurking. Usually at odd hours when my thinker is creatively tapped. Today, I have a brief minute to let you know what is going on.
Tru Blu is in the busiest season ever! I am now a Sous Chef/ Event Manager/ part-time nurse practitioner. I am also able to go to ball games, and occasionally have friends over. The rest of the crowd regularly at our house are family, spiritually speaking.
Nash was the star of the second grade performance of "It s a Jungle Out There." I am pretty proud. He kicked some serious jungle jams.
My garden is growing, slowly but surely. And can I just say thank God for community! You never know who God is going to put in your life. They could be the most extreme out there hippies to the most conservative and yet still, with Jesus as the common denominator, they will be in the backyard with you gardening. They may not like it, they may play with their IPHONE for 99.5 percent of the time, but does that really matter? Their spouse is there, kids are there and love is in the air. Ahh the joy of community gardening. This year it looks like our main crops are to be tomatoes, lettuce and corn. Oh wait onions too, golden beets, cucumber, okra, a few melons. Lots of herbs, strawberries, asparagus. Lots of sunflowers!

Mia is graduating June 16th! yeah! She is still not decided about what to do next, so pray for wisdom for her! I also would like to have a party for her.

Bella is going to sixth grade, I want to home-school, only I stink at home-schooling so maybe ABeka will bail me out. Nash is probably going to Cornerstone. But he is having reservations, as are we. Are we doing the right thing? I am praying for peace about the decision.

My new job is most awesome. 2 short days a week! Can we say Amen?! I also have to cover vacations and days off for three doctors, but it is ok. I am loving the freedom.
Okay, so I am going to confess again that I will be trying to get into shape this summer. So anytime anyone wants to do anything physical, except that, call me! I would like to walk the track, pretend to play tennis, go to the gym, I am going Hendrick, I will probably not "diet" at first. I will try to eat less sugar. I will drink more water. I will drink rejuvelac, "living water" a fermented wheat berry water that cleans out your digestive tract and has lots of nutritional qualities. I know TMI.

I am going to be an Aunt again! And no Rachel is not PG that I know of. My Sweet Sister-in-lay Sara is going to have her baby in mid July! Third boy, sound familiar anyone?

BFW this weekend, Three more parties for Tru Blu on Friday night. One on Thursday! Crazy busy!

Single Parent Fundraiser is 4 weeks out we still need invitations completed and more auction items. I have lined up amazing talent. Chef Joel will be preparing a superb menu as well. It is going to be the coolest night Clyde has ever seen.

I don't think I should spend anymore time on here. Next time, medical van and def poetry, peace out.
