Catching up with us MeYeR's


Greetings from HOT and SUNNY New Mexico! The temps have stayed in the high 90s all week with overnight lows in the low 70s...I do believe that summer has arrived!! We actually got some rain this week, bring much needed moisture to town and cooler weather at least while it was raining...ha ha! It's been another buys week at the MeYeR/Bean/Starnes house, with MUCH coming and going. Dan and 'Shua left for Hurley early Tuesday after an enjoyable 4 day weekend since they are working 4 days a week in Hurley. The boys, Jodi and I put the house back together after one too many days of enjoying ourselves and not being diligent about house work and by early afternoon, things were back to the way they should be looking. Dan and I decided over the weekend that David and Patrick are now responsible for ALL the dishes...let the weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth begin! They did rather well and have fallen into a nice routine. Pat does the breakfast dishes alone, David does the lunch dishes alone and at dinner time, they work together and sometimes James helps, too. It has taken a large burden off of me and I surely appreciate Dan reminding me that they are old enough to help more than occasionally. Jodi had a full week of Dr appts, errands to run and misc appointments that kept her on the go most of the week, but I think she is starting to enjoy being at home. Back to the coming and going...when I got home from work on Tuesday, the van was parked out front and after hearing about fist fights and layoffs during last week's work week, I was a bit apprehensive...and when I realized that 'Shua was not home, I was truly concerned...WHAT WAS GOING ON?? So I ever so gently woke Dan up at 2:30 AM by snapping on the light and demanding to know where my child was...Ha ha ha! Poor Dan, he was kind enough to explain that 'Shua was still in Hurley working and that Wooten had called Dan back to work in town this week. So I relaxed and Dan had a good laugh at my paranoid behavior and then went back to bed. So I enjoyed having Dan around in the afternoons before I had to head to work. Since I had to work Friday, there was no game night and everyone really missed it but sometimes ya just gotta do what ya gotta do! I worked M, T, W, and F this week and actually I am supposed to work tonight but I called in and begged off, I need a break~ So we are taking all the boys to the race track tonight to watch the minis race. 'Shua arrived safely home courtesy of the supervisor who lives here in town and we were glad to have him home again. Dan and he spent a happy part of the evening looking up dune buggy tires and then ordering one as a continually flat tire has been the fly in the ointment of their happy trailblazing hours...LOL! I spent Friday afternoon playing counselor for some friends, and although I though I had a bit of success, they are still not quite right, so I may have to try again...of course, them actually LISTENING to me might help a bit more...ha ha ha! And that brings us to today...and I am enjoying my afternoon, it's actually almost quiet in here! Jodi had the boys write a short report about how 3D glasses work this week and then took them to see the movie UP in 3D as 'research' and a reward for their hard work...we've been working on Internet research and they all worked hard. We are going to push hard for one more week and then school will be out for the summer. We've done our required amount of days but have a few last lingering worksheets to wrap up and a project or two that needs finishing. We will continue to read and write and think over the summer, I'll probably even insist to Mom and Dad that Pat do the same as he spends time with them this summer. Speaking of Pat's travels, he is flying to IL on the 20th of June with Lauren...return date unknown, he's actually pushing to stay until the wedding in Sept, but that's a REALLY long time for a 10 year old to be away from home. Anywho...back to coming and going, Dan is staying in town again for at least part of the week and 'Shua is headed to Hurley early Monday morning...so we shall see how this week pans out. I have another long week of work ahead and then the next week...nothing, so I'm hoping this week will pass quickly and we can start enjoying a non-working week...yeah! Well this is long and random so I'm about done, but a picture and a parting thought...
This is what Dan found after one of the rain showers this week...

God is Good, ALL the time and just because we forget doesn't mean he falls off His throne! : )

Have a great week and be blessed! Many Hugs, Kristy and the Man Crew

If you had to sign for the big Kohls sale today, I feel for you! I went in today and bought a ton of stuff for next to nothing and thought "poor Kristy, she probably worked until midnight to put up signs in her store, for this".

The Man Crew said...

Only midnight?? I wish! A big sale like that is more like 2 am...but I do appreciate you thinking of me...sometimes as I'm hanging signs, Isee something that makes me really think of your girls and I want to call and say, "hey, there's a great sale on such and such...go get it!" LOL! Glad you enjoyed the sale, the really do have some good ones! Miss you all!
