MIDDLE – 6-21-2006

By Rick Racela

As I write this, half the family is out west on vacation visiting my daughter, Hayley, and her family.
Somehow I got stuck home with the three sons while my husband and three daughters are hiking the Grand Canyon and taking a week-long houseboat trip, complete with speed boat, waverunners and kayaks, on Lake Powell in Utah.
I’m not complaining though, as I’m getting a lot accomplished.
They have only been gone two days and I’ve painted the bathroom door, organized my office, moved furniture from the living room to the upstairs family room, dug out eight hydrangea bushes that were diseased, mulched the garden, mowed the lawn, and I am almost finished enlarging the driveway area.
No wonder my husband loves me so much!
