" Sunday Evening, Weekend In Review "

Right now as I am writing this, I smell like lavender and roses. Quite a stark contrast from an hour ago. My wonderful son, no I am not exaggerating here, he was a much more pleasant teen, came over this morning and mowed my yard for me. He also trimmed the yard and cleaned all of my gutters for me. Without any complaints! He is a very good son. After that I worked in my yard all day. I planted some begonias, coleus, cilantro and an azalea bush. I now have one whole section of my yard done. Only three more to go. It was a lot of fun playing in the dirt all day but I am now contentedly worn out!

As some of you are aware, I had some teen trouble yesterday. My Katie, for the most part is a good girl. But she had done something which I will not divulge out of respect for her. It was something that she knew she wasn't supposed to do. It was not a pleasant day in our household. To say the least. And really, all her father and I expected was a sincere apology.The apology finally arrived this morning in it's sincerest form. Life in our household is righted once again. For now!

I tried posting something that my other daughter, Ginny, had emailed me. Once again I couldn't get it right and since Katie wasn't allowed to use the computer at that time, it had to wait until today. Ginny too was a good teen. And I don't know what we did but she sent my husband and I the same text message today. It said " Hey mom and Jake. Just a note to say I love you guys. Thank you for being such awesome parents." We both received this text before Katie woke up and apologized
, the timing couldn't have been more perfect as I always have doubts about the job I am doing in parenting Katie.
So now here we go. This is what Ginny emailed me. I absolutely loved this. Hope you enjoy it too.

Diana, I loved the video!
And, even more, I loved hearing that all is right in your world again!
You do have wonderful children, which is a testament to their wonderful upbringing and their wonderful mother (and Dad too!).
'Glad you got a lot done too! That always feels good!

Isn't peace awesome, wherever and whenever it occurs?
Hang in there, Katie will grow up and one day think you did a thing or two right...think I may have caught Ria unintentionally leading me to believe that!!
thank you for your heart warming comments, my friend!

Hi Diana,
Glad to hear all turned out well in your world...and that you got a 'sincere apology'! One day, you might even be able to laugh about what happened...oneday : ) Thanks for sharing, it makes us realize we are not alone in the events that shake up our world, and make us shake our heads in wonder...
