Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Playing Catch-up

Here I am typing like a crazy woman trying to get y'all up to speed.

Let me start for apologizing for being MIA the last month or so.  Immediately following my birthday in May I received word that I would be managing a project that was high priority, high profile and of course what does that translate into for me…high stress!  It didn’t end up being too stressful but I was traveling back and forth weekly to Jackson and at the end of the project I was basically living in Jackson for 2 ½ weeks.  It was a fast-tracked project so it only spanned 10 weeks and although it was a TON of work it was really interesting and shall I even dare to say FUN, or as fun as work really can be.  I am starting to think I just convinced myself I was having fun to distract myself from the fact that I was away from my family entirely too much.
So the past few nights I have been working on catching up the blog.  It’s really important to me to record life as we go so we can show Austin everything we did when he was a baby.  So when people ask what he did as a baby he doesn’t reply, “nothing, mommy worked”.  Then each year we make coffee table book from the blog posts.
