HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DADDY!!

Today is my dad’s birthday. Oh how I wish I could take my motley crew and impose upon my folks to help celebrate another milestone. Instead I’m just gonna talk about him (in past tense just because I’m thinking back to when I was a kid) a little bit. I’ve always seen my dad as…

Here’s What’s Going On

The first week of my new job has gone pretty well. I have so much to learn, but once I can work for more than 15 minutes without having to ask a question it’s going to be great. For all concerned. Yesterday I spoke for a MOPS group in Bechtelsville (how fun is that to…

Airports, Afghans and A Cake

I picked my folks up from the airport yesterday. What an ordeal that was. There was little to no traffic and I just zipped my way there. The parking deck, however, was full and they were directing the cars to economy parking in New Jersey. Or maybe Delaware. Oh, alright. It was still in Philly,…

Happy, Happy Birthday, Baby…

Today my sweetheart celebrated his 44th birthday. It’s been a long time since the first birthday I celebrated with him – his twentieth. Where have the years gone? Todd chose to have stacked enchiladas tonight instead of going out dinner. So Katie and I made his favorite meal. I feel almost like I cheated because…

A Bunch of Good Stuff

So what’s up? Nothin’ much going on here. Just the usual. You know. Todd’s at work – he’s got major short timer’s disease, but he’s making a valiant effort; Katie’s babysitting; Taylor’s at CIY in Tennessee – kind of like church camp only much more intense. Katie’s Little Homies are going camping this afternoon through…

I have one of those very smart cars that tells you when something is wrong. Sunday my car warned me the pressure in two of the tires was…

Happy Birthday To Me

Guess what I got for my birthday. A crick in the neck of epic proportions. Which makes me want to call it a river in the neck. Because you know how some people call a creek a “crick” and a river is bigger than a creek? That came to me in the early hours of…

A Week With My Folks

I dropped my parents off at the airport this morning. *sigh* It was a nice visit and it seemed to end much too soon. I’m already thinking about when the kids and I can make it down their way. As promised, I have pictures!! Not the good ones I mentioned in my last post, but…

Potato Post

In the same way potatoes are sometimes considered the “filler” for a meal, this little post is the filler for my blog. Mom and Dad leave tomorrow morning for their home. *sigh* I’ll miss them and hopefully it won’t be a whole year before we get to see them again. I’ve decided I’m done with…
