Just a quick note to let you know I have not forgotten you all.

As usual, I’m a bit late in posting these pictures.  We had a wonderful time visiting family in Beverly for Thanksgiving.  So much fun in fact, that I frequently forgot to pick up the camera. Ooops. We stayed with my cousin Christine, who hosted a small Thanksgiving at her apartment. Afterwards Tom, her boyfriend, kicked everybody out of the kitchen so that he could clean it all up.  Vada popped in and asked if she could help, and amazingly he said yes.  I had to sneak in to take a picture of Vada carefully loading the dishwasher after Tom rinsed off the plates.

Later Tom came into the living room to let us know there was another photo op.  Vada was busily scrubbing out all of the pots. She is quite the little helper! (more…)

So it snowed Saturday morning/afternoon. Umm…isn’t it October. Who ever heard of a white Halloween? It was a bit odd. I had already told the girls we would go to the grocery for their Trick or Treating at noon, so we ran out to the car and braved the oddness.

About 3:30, Doug and I were playing with the girls in their room, and the power went out. It soon became clear it was going to stay out for quite a while.

The girls informed Doug that they wanted to “Throw snowballs at Daddy!”, so they all bundled up and out they went. I stayed in and made dinner. Yet another reason I am fond of my gas stove! (more…)

Honestly, since I left the theater, I don’t think I’ve understood this phrase as much as I do right now. Somehow I have forgotten how many hours there are in a day and have just taken on a bit too much. I guess that is the downfall of finally having a handle on my MDD for the first time in quite a few years. Guess I will have to learn about restraint again. ;^) So much to do!

On top of the WiPs I had already going on, a few weeks ago my sister~in~law called to say there would be a baby show for our niece on the 9th (last weekend). That’s right, do the math, I’m going to be a great aunt. Our niece’s mother is Doug’s older sister from his father’s first marriage, so I don’t feel quite as old, but it is still a bit of an odd feeling. Then again, I have an uncle who is 5 months younger then me, so I guess I should just chill a bit. (more…)
