Today is a new day...

My mom, Andrew, Daniel, Philip and Jessica are coming home today. It has been a nice quiet weekend without them here. I talked on the phone without being interrupted for at least six hours (not straight, that's all the times I talked on the phone) while they've been gone. My dad and I went and saw "lady in the water", which I would give a pretty good review. I also got to cook for my dad and then just the two of us greeted at church yesterday. It's been good.

Philip - my little brother - is terribly excited because he entered honey in the county fair and the honey is now going to the state fair. I'm really proud of him. Jessica - my little sister - also entered some things in the county fair, her kitten poster received a reverse champion ribbon and I'm incredibly proud of her as well. I also also very excited for the state fair. Last year I had a blast and actually if I remember right, I think it was the first time I ever went on more than one ride.

I've known I needed to update since Covie, but actually sitting down and writing something worthwhile to read has been really hard. I have a lot that probably needs to be said, however, I can't make it come out the way its in my head.

What does saying you're sorry mean to you?

To me, sorry had always been close enough, but not the same as asking for forgiveness. Its like regretting something and having a sense of loss over whatever happened. In the past I've been told that I say I'm sorry too much, almost that it looses its real meaning because I just throw it around. There have been times when I've asked for and been given forgiveness about something, but the person still hasn't truly forgiven me and I find myself just saying that I'm sorry again and again. I want to just say that when I say I'm sorry, I truly - with all my heart - mean it.

Life is going, not much to report. Tomorrow morning I leave for Covie. I'm excited and I hope it ends up being a good time. When I come home, there's only one week on summer swim team left and then around half the employees leave for college and I'll be working their hours until school starts. Some summers I look forward to school starting, but I'm taking a ton of classes this year - and I'll leave that for another post, cause I don't want to think about it more than I have to! ;-)
