WHERE does the time go????
First off. Thank you for the all the kind emails after my weepy day the other day. I'm trying to answer them all. But thank you. It caught me off guard. Also...I learned something that day. You see...I've always loved to write. I've kept journals forever.
Then...sometime during the past 2 years I stopped writing journals but began writing on bulletin boards and blogs. And you know what? I can no longer write to myself. I tried. With that entry...I tried. I was going to write just to get it out of my system. I was planning to keep it private. I opened up a word doc and it wouldn't come. It.would.not.come. So ya'll are stuck with me...I have to write to people. ;) I've always been a letter writer, a rambler...and now I know that this is the key to my writing..I have to write TO somebody.
Tomorrow is March. I'm still not done with January, and tomorrow is March!!! So much going on - life is picking up speed now. The winter doldrums are over with wether I like it or not. We are picking up the pace in Tormville!
Still. I brought back about 6 boxes from storage the other day. One of those rubbermaids was FULL of cassettes from our teenage days. Full. I threw all but 20 out on Sunday. This week we have the stereo going constantly. I'm listening to those last 20 and pitching as I go. Today it's been Cyndi Lauper, Bruce Springstein, Whitesnake and Yaz. Wendy, I think, won't let me toss out Yaz. Good times. Lots of memories in music.
AND. Purple Heart called today and will be here on Friday. The next 2 days are now purge days full steam ahead. yes! Love when I know they'll be picked up right away.
He loves to laugh
He crawls around the house wiggling exageratedly. And he's starting to walk pretty well. Crawling is still easier tho.
He's still a momma's boy...but dad seems like he might be sticking around, so he's letting his guard back down.
He now has 8 teeth
And he's goofy. This picture is for whoever it was that requested a smiling one after his bawling at the fence one last week. ;)
Class of 2019
Wendy had Kindergarten round up this morning. She's excited. She's a tad worried about the last immunization she needs...but for the most part, she's excited. It's hard to believe that next year I'll have an elementary kid AND a middle schooler. Where is time going???
Class of 2019. My word.
hehe! Becky Thompson is coming to Michigan for our megameet! I'm SOOOOOOOO excited! I happened to notice on her blog the other night that she had it listed in her places that she'll be column. I'm.so.excited!!! It's so fun to meet scrapping friends after emailing for several years. And Becky, she's got a special spot because she's the only person I've ever known who has the same dread of holes as I do. Now, if that doesn't cement a friendship, I don't know what does. Can't wait!
Somebody posted this link on a message board the other day, and we Torms are so impressed. It's been watched quite a few times already - it's one of those video clips that makes you feel all full up. It's so fun to witness somebody succeed in what they do. This guy, he's succeeded. Click on the word 'watch' on his page...and do just that. Sit back...and watch. Chriss Bliss
Tonight is his first boyscout meeting. I'm anxious to get the schedule for this year. In boy scouts they do so much more than they did in cubs. It's going to be a struggle to keep and find new balance...but he loves it, so we'll do our best.
whoops...dad's home for supper....I'll have to continue another day.
