And actually the very beginning of the book mentions the Roswell incident, I guess to capture your attention. However a wrench is thrown into the equation. I won't mention what it is, in case you would like to read this book. This book is actually historical "fact" based on de-classified government information. It amazes me the experimentation our goverment has been doing since the 1950's in an area they still claim doesn't exist. It's a history book about the CIA, FBI, Air Force, various private companies working together on projects that even today, if you don't have a need to know, you don't know. And it's very disturbing to learn exactly what our government was doing and are still doing and the public really has no idea. The end of the book is most disturbing, learning what kind of experiments our government did on it's own citizens without anyones knowledge. I have to say that I am skeptical of some parts of this book, although, once reading it, some theories make perfect sense. I probably have you all confused by now, but if you love history, science fiction and mysteries, this book definitely covers all three. And there is alot of technical terms which I did not care for, as it made some of it confusing for me, since I am just a layman. I do highly recommend reading it. It will definitely make you look at our government in a totally different light.

My DIL Diana has started a food blog. It's called Chasing Flavour. The link is Chasingflavour.wordpress.com. She did her first post yesterday and she is very witty. And I can guarantee you the food will make your mouth water.
I totally suck at trying to lose weight. Those of you who have followed me for years know this, lol. I did really good on the Visalus Shakes while I was on that diet. However I seem to lose interest in everything I try. I lost 10 lbs on the shake diet only to gain 14 back. I know I can't do dieting alone and that is kind of a cop out. But I really think if I had someone to hold my hand while I'm trying to lose it would help me. I love my husband but he really is no help. And I really need to take at least 20 lbs off even though I would love to take 50 off. I would not only feel better but my health would be better also. My sugars are creeping back up and it's scaring me, but not enough to take control. Pretty sad, huh.
One day I will do a blog about Wade and Diana's new house. They moved in in May. I have taken pictures and posted on FB but not in a blog. I am so proud of them. I am also proud of Liz and Scott. They have not purchased a home yet but they finally were able to move into a place of their own. I know they are enjoying being on their own, being able to do their own thing. So yay for all my kids.
Layla starts pre-K in a few weeks. This is going to be a hard transition for Diana I believe. It's hard to believe Layla is growing up so fast. I'll have to get some current pics and get them posted.
Hut and I are starting to get the house somewhat organized since the kids are now all out and they have taken quite a few things with them. I'm hoping to get rid of a few more pieces of furniture by giving it to Wade and Diana. Once the clutter is gone, I'm sure I'll feel better about my house, lol.
Lots of changes going on every day. So what's going on in your part of the world?

Layla has been visiting with her biological father for 6 weeks. 6 WEEKS!!!!! That's a long time not to see Layla. The WHOLE family is waiting for her to come home. She will be coming home tomorrow night. After Church on Sunday we are going to having a welcome home party for her. We are all so excited about her coming home. I am just going to try to share some pictures of Layla and they are in no particular order. Enjoy!
