It is snowing here at Rainrock.  I'm especially homesick right now, so I decided to finally share a few pictures on the blog.

Here is the view out our bedroom window:
Here is the fireplace in our bedroom - yes, it's nice.  :)

My bed (yes, I have taken up knitting - don't judge!):
Here's my board that keeps my spirits up:

Mom and dad - thank you for the beautiful roses:
A hair-dying party in the bathroom (I think we had about 14 women in one bathroom for this):
Here I'm getting highlights that never worked (I can't figure out how to turn the picture around!):
Here we are doing "henna tattoos" - yes, my hair is red:  :)
I miss home, I miss you, I miss my little boy, I miss my wonderful husband.  I love you.  I'll be home soon.

Lonely for Home

Hi all.  It's Mars.  I'm here writing from Rainrock - I'm not sure if anyone is checking the blog lately, but I'm having a rough day today.  I am so unbelievably homesick and I miss Charlie and Shawn desperately.  I miss them so bad my body hurts.  
On the inside, I'm feeling very much like this song - one of my favorite pieces of music.  It's the theme song from the movie "Castaway".  If you click below you can listen to it.  Know that I'm here, listening too.  And missing you very, very much.
