I am just Diane, just a mom and a wife. I have 5 children that range in age from 18 down to 2. I am also feeling particularly crafty lately and have opened an etsy store. Please feel free to check it out.

Blog writing is hard

...when you are exhausted.  I visit my blog daily and am painfully aware that I have not been blogging much lately.  Truth be told, I am just so tired that I cannot think of anything to write about...  never mind actually write about it.  Everything is more difficult when tired.

So just a little update.  That's all I have in me for now because I need to save some of my energy today to get off my butt and clean my house.

My oldest son is officially graduated.  I am giddy with anticipation about his future (although my excitedness has been squashed by... you guessed it, exhaustion) .  I have high hopes for him.  Always have.  We got to meet his girlfriend and I have to say, I really like her.

We went to Hershey park for the very first time and it was fun.  It is never easy to take two toddlers to theme parks but this park has quite a few rides for little ones and they are old enough to really enjoy them.  It always makes my day to see them laugh.  It was hot and I thought we might get rained right out of the park but luckily the rain only lasted long enough to make it super humid and freakishly hot.  I also cannot stand utterly expensive food and drinks are in places like that.  I mean, $3.00 for a 16 oz soda???  It is like they are on Mars and they have to pay extra to get soda there.  I have always been a little bullshit over this topic. It should be called what it is, highway robbery.  I took juice boxes for the kids (there was 6 of them with us) and when the guard checked my bag she said "How many juice boxes are you bringing???"  Yeah, enough so that I don't go broke making sure my kids get a drink.  There are no water fountains there.  Not that it bothers me though, they gross me out.  My never-completely-happy side comes out when I am tired so just read this last paragraph as "We had the time of our lives at Hershey Park and I would recommend going to everyone, just bring lots of juice or lots of money".

I was looking forward to making a trip to Dollywood over the 4th of July weekend but I have changed my mind.  Maybe next year when I have had time to recover from the other trip.  We don't normally go out for fireworks on the 4th because I hate to think of all of the idiots who are drinking and driving.  I don't know, maybe we will this year.  Maybe we won't.

I have been working on some little people aprons.  Here is one...

There are a couple more but she love that one and has been wearing it since I finished it.  If you are interested in purchasing one, I will have some on etsy soon or you can just drop me a line at dianelynn2004 (at) msn (dot) com.

I decided that I was done with long hair.  While we were away on vacation and after our day at Hershey Park, I decided I was done.  I have been tossing around the idea for a while but I was scared to do it.  My hair was getting pretty long and I really did like it... sorta.  So, I have gone from this

to this

or even this

I don't know why I didn't do it sooner!  I LOVE it.  I am so happy to not have to wash, dry and curl all of that hair I had before!  It is so simple now and I can still put it in a ponytail if I want.

Okay, so that is my little update.  Hopefully I will get back to blogging soon.  Don't give up on me just yet.
