Switching Directions

November 10, 2006

I’ve been reading Eragon by Christopher Paolini. The kid was a mere teenager when he wrote it and that in itself makes it worth reading. He sucks you in with his imagery and storytelling and I am enjoying the book. HOWEVER, it’s taking me forever to get through it and I don’t think it’s my…

Who are Dixie & Daisy?

November 7, 2006

You may have noticed the counter on my sidebar that says “Dixie and Daisy”. That nifty little business is counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until I have reconstruction on December 29th. That’s right, people. Goodbye Uniboob, hello Dixie and Daisy. No more worrying about my boob ending up around my waist when…

Revolve Tour

November 5, 2006

Wow! I don’t even know where to start. So many thoughts running through the very limited space in my head and I’m afraid I’ll leave something out. So I’m going to start at the beginning and hope I remember it all. Thirty-four teenage girls and seven women met at the church Friday afternoon, bringing sleeping…

Old Pictures

November 1, 2006

I scanned some old pictures of the kids today. Most of them were Halloween pictures that I’ll post later this afternoon. But I couldn’t resist these two. This first one was taken in October of 1996. It was funny that I came across it right before Kristie talked about raking leaves. Taylor was four and…

5 Truths

October 26, 2006

I was tagged by both Devonna and Jodi to give 5 truths. This was really hard at first because I couldn’t think of anything that people maybe didn’t already know. But the deeper I looked, the easier it became. And scarier. Especially because I hate being vulnerable. So here are five of the many truths…

It’s a Rock Band

October 23, 2006

My son, Taylor, is 14-years-old and plays bass guitar in one of the youth bands at church. Last night was his band’s second time to play. It is SO much fun watching him up there and seeing how comfortable he’s getting in front of the audience. The band is starting to meld together, too. So…
