Your life is not lying in wait in the future like a wild animal or some ominous destiny. Nor is it hidden in the heavens, like a paradise or promise. Nor is it shut up in the cave or the prison of your past. It is here and now; it is what you live and what you do. At the heart of being; at the heart of the present; at the heart of everything – in the great current of life, of reality.

**Ready For Summer**

I miss my husband.  He's been so busy over the last few weeks!  He's been a teacher for the apprenticeship since 2000, and he teaches one night a week for that.  And about a month ago, he received a promotion at work, and he is now training people which is great, BUT the training takes place after work, so now he is gone an extra night each week for that job.  Also, he had to go through some training of his own, so that was another two nights he had to work late over the last two weeks.  So, over the last couple weeks he's been working late three days a week.  And this week he had to teach on Monday and Tuesday nights, and Wednesday morning he left for Texas for work, and won't be back until Friday evening!!  So, yea, I'm missing my husband alot.  My girls are missing him, too.  And I feel bad for him because is, completely, drained!

So, I'm ready for summer because things slow down for him in the summer.  He doesn't teach for the apprenticeship during the summer months, and he won't do as much training then either.  And since we spend all our weekends at the cabin during the summer he usually gets home early on Fridays which is great. Our time at the cabin during the summer is wonderful!  When we wake up on Saturday we all meet on the porch and sit out there for, at least, an hour talking and laughing.  Then we make breakfast together, and we head back out to the porch to eat.  By 11am we're ready to head out to the lake, and we usually spend the whole day out there on the boat - we cruise around the lake for a bit, and then we anchor the boat so the girls can swim (Dave and I prefer just floating on a raft to relax, and soak up the sun!), and then we'll head over to the beach for awhile, and then it's back to the boat for another cruise around the lake.  Once we're all sunned out we head back to the cabin to shower, and then we grill out, and have dinner on the porch.  We usually end our day with a movie or a bonfire.  Good stuff!

This weekend we're going to the cabin for some much needed chill time!  It's not warm enough for the lake yet, but I'm looking forward to relaxing with my family - having some porch time, playing games, listening to music, taking a walk, watching a movie.  One more sleep, one more sleep, one more sleep, and we'll be there!  YAY!
