What happen to July!

Wow, can't believe this is the last day of July. The year is half over!
The wedding on Saturday turned out great. We had rain, but it stopped before the ceremony
and the temp dropped about 20 degrees, so that was nice. The reception had to be held at the park, as the building they had reserved didn't have the repairs done from the storm damage. It all worked out great, a beautiful evening, great music from the band, lots of visiting, everyone had a nice time. Congratulations Brock & Debbie!
Cheston and Brook were darling! They looked so cute in their red/white/blue shirts. They are such sweet little munchkins.

Where does the time go!

Time sure is flying by and we have been so busy. I also haven't been keeping up my blog.
Brock and Debbie's house is getting closer to be done...I will be glad when they are able to move
in and get settled. This weekend a local doctor is having a fundraiser for Brock & Debbie and another family that were tornado victims. I thought that was very nice of her and it sure will help with the expenses of rebuilding.
The following weekend they will be getting married. They had this planned way before the tornado and decided to not postpone it and have it. Its a small wedding and then a reception after. They just found out the place that they had rented for the reception had some damage and it won't be done in time...they are going to have to have it in the park, hoping for nice weather.
I am still not sure how many family members will be coming, it will probably be a wait and see kind of thing.
I have a lot to do before the wedding, but can't seem to get it done.
This is the third summer we have not had a/c, we do have a window one in the bedroom. I am getting tired of living in there! We are finally getting a new one, its going to be ordered tomorrow. Hopefully it will be in FAST!
Well, time to get see if I can figure out something with the flowers for the wedding.

Lora on 2SS posted a blog challenge about quotes. One of the quotes I have always liked is:

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Eleanor Roosevelt

This is so true. No matter what anyone says to hurt you or ruin your day, don't let it.
You know you are a good person and can't let anyone take your happiness away. You just
need to remember if you don't allow it (consent) then it won't get you down.

I really want to start posting more often and not be such a slacker....
It is so hot out, over 100 degrees! Alec has been out working on the fence for the cows. Eddie and Mickey are going to love it when they have the extra room to roam around.
Brock and Debbie's house is coming along, the new floors are in, almost all the ceilings are painted, we cleaned the walls. Need to finish the ceilings, lay carpet and wash out cabinets and finish up some odds and ends, then they should be able to move in. When we were there the other night, Cheston was showing me which room wsa his, he is pretty excited. Then Brook and Cheston and rags and were dipping them in the bucket of water trying to help clean, LOL! The water was flying.
I haven't scrapped in so long, I think I forgot how. Seems there isn't enough hours in the day for it. Maybe those fairy maids will show up and clean the house from top to bottom and organize everything and then I'll have lots of free time. Then I'll need to work on winning that lottery. :)
Sometimes people really disappoint me. You go out of your way to do things for them to be nice and they do not try to do anything to help themselves. Then when life doesn't work out the way they want it to, they blame it on everyone else. They say and do mean and nasty things. This happen to me recently, it really hurt, but then I have to remember, I know what is true and they will be the ones that have to answer to the way they have behaved. At least I know I did what I could to be a good person.
