Wow, time does fly. It's been a hard summer so far - dh left at the end of May for what was supposed to be one month overseas. If he does come home next week - it'll have been 2 months ! That's 2 months of having 4 kids involved in 2 sports, and umpteen tenants. I handled a couple of evictions, and inspection, purchased one new property, and made a few repairs here and there. I learned how to take out windows and reinstall them, as well as keeping our own grass cut, and having a wonderful veggie garden this year. We spent the 4th of July out on a boat - watching the fireworks in Atlantic City - that was awesome and certainly memorable. We're planning on taking the same boat fishing this Friday - hoping we can stock the freezer with fresh fish before hubby gets home !
