The Stars at Night, are Big and Bright . . .

It's been interesting around here, to say the least. You'll recall that my mom was sent home from her mission in May due to a fall. She's been staying here with me ever since, going to doctors and getting herself well. She's just gotten her reassignment and will be filling a service mission in Houston, Texas. She leaves on Thursday. It's been good to spend time with her, but I'm also of the opinion that two women in one house isn't a good thing . . .

My daughter had a great time at Girls' Camp and I think I survived the week without her. I have to say, though, watching her get on that bus and realizing that I wouldn't know how she was for a solid five days was really hard for me and I did sniffle quite a lot. But she's a remarkable young lady and I couldn't be more proud of how she's growing up.

I've also been working extra hard on wrastling this sodium thing into submission. Right now I'm in the middle of Operation Oven, where I'm preparing foods to fill my freezer so I have low-sodium foods I can just grab, heat, and eat. You can check it out here.

That's about it for an update on me. . . I really didn't have much of anything to say, but it's been a week since I posted and I figured I'd better assure you that I haven't fallen off the planet somehow.

Glad you haven't fallen off the face of the earth - the earth would be the worse off for it!

Glad to hear your mom is doing well enough to go out and serve some more.

Houston is a bit far for us to have her over for dinner, but I'm sure she'll be well taken care of.

Tristipie,

I'm so glad your mom is coming here. I hope the heat isn't too much of a shock. They really shouldn't send a missionary to Houston in the summer, but come October she'll love it here! :)

I hear you on the 2 women thing, as much as you love 'em! That is quite the project on the Salt.

Ah, I've seen you're one of us who can't be satisfied with one blog.

Wow! Houston is awesome for your mom! I'll bet she's so excited! (and I bet you're ready to have your house back, too. :) )

I love your Salt of the Earth post.

And I'm glad Karyn survived Girls Camp. I'll bet while you were chewing your nails to bits, she was having a great time.

Anna, blogging is a compulsion, what can I say? Must . . . have . . . blogs . . .

Danyelle, the freezer is in the corner of the kitchen where that little wall sticks out with the decorative window in it. It's kind of snug but it works!

My girls are at girl's camp this week, and it's nice to have a little more peace and few less trips into town. My youngest didn't want to go so I'm hoping she's doing okay. Best of luck with mom's send off (again) and keep up the good work on your diet--it's been interesting to follow.
