Random Thoughts

  • My trees have buds on them and my tulips are coming up.
  • When we were going to Girl Scouts last night, Ashley was convinced that she saw a truck that was buried in the ground. All you could see was the roof. It got us all curious, but, alas, on the way home we couldn't find the truck. Maybe they finished burying it...
  • John LOVES Larry Boy and he can sing the theme song. I guess I should specify since there is more than one--he sings "Oh, Larry Boy, we need you now.." He knows the whole thing and one of my new favorite things is to listen to him sing it. That is, if I can convince him to sing it again.
  • Nathan's new favorite thing is the local trains. Now that we can play outside, every time he hears one he wants me to drive him to see it.
  • The Nurse Practitioner that saw Nathan yesterday wants to have his hearing checked because he has fluid on them and his left one just looked plain weird inside. But since he's hearing trains over a mile away maybe we can skip that check...
  • To hosta or not to hosta that is the question... we are planning out our flower beds and my front one is very shaded. I wanted hostas for some ground cover, but Joe doesn't like them because they spread too fast. And so we are faced with the question--to hosta or not to hosta
  • My new name for Nathan is my little world changer. The question is---will he survive past age 2 so that he can actually change the world?
  • Sara now has her own email address. I cannot even tell you how excited she is. Don't be offended if she hasn't written you yet, though. It takes her about a half an hour to write one small email. And then she has to read some more so she can have some more computer time. We've gotta teach that girl how to type!
  • I saw a robin yesterday
  • Ashley's birthday is next week and she's getting a hamster.

Think Spring!

So now you know what happens when I can't sleep--I get bored, change things up a bit and make you think you are on the wrong blog. I'm feeling springy. It is suppose to be in the 50s this week...

Wide awake

So it is 9:24 pm and I am wide awake and I didn't take a nap this afternoon. This is so rare that I decided I should share it with you. I think maybe, perhaps, the Sunday time change is having some impact on me. We'll see how I feel in the morning. But right now I feel as though I've drank 2 cups of coffee an hour ago.

Sara's new hole

So Sara's next tooth hasn't come out yet so I decided I should go ahead and get a picture of the most recent one lost. Okay, I'll be honest, I forgot about it and then the other day when I was taking pictures of the girls' new haircuts Sara asked me if I was going to take a picture of her new hole. So here it is. It took me awhile to actually post it this evening because I was playing with a new toy that I can now play with since I have a new computer--Photobucket. Let me just say that I could make this picture look pretty interesting--maybe freaky would be a better word. Anyway, I thought you might actually like a picture of reality rather than modern art so I just settled on a nice silver frame. I'm going to have to take some more pictures just so I can do a slideshow!

He's a smart one!

So this is my official first post on my new computer and I'll write more about that tomorrow. I have some pictures that I need to include.

Anyway, the other day I was paying bills in my office and Nathan mentioned to me that he was hungry. And it was getting pretty close to lunch time. I promised him that I feed him as soon as I finished up. Then he disappeared and I got preoccupied with Quicken. About five minutes later I found him in the kitchen. Evidently he didn't believe me and decided he needed to take care of it himself.
