Now this may be a silly post to some of you, but Wednesday was the last Oprah Winfrey show. Anyone that knows me well knows that I have watched the Oprah Winfrey show since I was in high school. I remember coming home and watching it with my Mom. All these years later I have continued to watch it. Since life has gotten busier I haven't been able to watch it everyday, but every chance that I got I was tuning in. I think about all the things I've learned from watching Oprah...struggles with weight, sex, relationships, education, loving yourself, giving service and the list could go on and on. I've laughed and cried watching her throughout the years. When my kids were little I would call my best friend and ask her if she had watched Oprah and we'd compare notes. There were many times when I would say "I learned on Oprah"...Watching her show has been so entertaining. I will miss my afternoon date with Oprah and will look back on all the years with fond memories.

What the heck am I doing?

I have been so frustrated with my blog lately. I guess some how I created two blogs so when I've been posting recently it's in another blog. I've tried o get the two blogs to import and I guess I don't know what I'm doing. Hopefully this post will go to the right blog. I want this blog to be cute, but I must be lacking in the skill.

I just finished my 3rd consecutive semester of school. I made the decision to take the summer off. I hate to get behind, but I need a mental health break. I've finally completed all of my math requirements. I am so happy about that. I have three more classes to take before I can get into a nursing program. It is so hard to get into one right now so we'll see how it goes. I have so many projects I want to get done this summer. I hope I don't drive myself crazy with them.

My Katy decided to stay the summer in Cedar City. She made a lot of great friends this past year and has a job there so it made sense of her to stay there. I have to admit I miss her. It feels like she's all grown up and may never come back home. She's grown into such a wonderful young woman and I am proud of her.

Eric is just about to finish his Junior year and boy is happy about that. He's ready for the summer to begin. I am hoping he finds a job so he'll be busy this summer.

We are planning a trip to Oregon this summer. We're going to go visit Mike's cousins there. It will be so nice to get away.

I think Mike is relieved to be done tutoring in Math. He helped me for a straight year on Math. I never would have made it through without him. He's such a great support to me! I am so blessed to have him.
