Some random, some purpose.

First, the odds and ends. Happy Birthday to my mom! And for the birthdays that slipped through my fingers…to my dad on the 6th of this month and my baby sister Alyssa on the 25th of April.  Happy [belated] Birthday to you two as well. Another product of our recent indoor time has been aRead more

Sticking around.

This sickness that is. Ali got warm last night. I didn’t take her temp but gave her meds when she woke up about midnight. Yesterday, as a whole, was quite odd. She/we slept in until 8:30-9am, then she took a long nap (hour to and hour and a half) until noon. Then another nap justRead more

Not blogging.

I have not been blogging. As you may have noticed. For a variety of reasons. I am currently spending way to much time READING a blog. I’m consumed. Ali is sick again. On the mend I think but that runny nose was struggling her real bad for awhile. She even had her first throw upRead more

She seems to be getting so big lately.

We are all still recovering around here. It’s been a busy, crazy, and stressful few weeks. We lost our county by 31 votes. Which is basically 16 undecideds.  While heartbreaking, it is really a victory considering  we are in one of the poorest, whitest counties in the state. Typical Clinton demographics. Anyway, anyway. We areRead more

Ten Months!

Alas, this is two days belated. Which is something I actually stress greatly about and Tony has to tell me this is the last thing I should be worrying about. Which is true. But still…. At the moment they are pouring my concrete next door. Ali is sleeping (how do they always time it likeRead more

Take your daughter to work day.

At least I’m pretty sure it was. There was an extraordinarily young girl in a Fred Meyer uniform at the store today. And the contractor working next door had one of his little girls with him. So, Tony "took" Ali to work for a bit as well. Adorable, I know. Now, somethings that have beenRead more

Sleep and stuff.

Yesterday was the first time Ali was really affected by the going ons next door. She usually is awake in three hour increments. Awoke from morning nap at eleven (only down thirty minutes), so should have been sleepy again around two, maybe two-thirty. Went down close to three-thirty. The hammering (they’re working on the foundation…orRead more

Day to day.

With so much going on (or maybe so little?) it’s easy to forget the nitty gritty of blogging about daily life. Or at least posting picture of "everyday." So…..let’s see. Weather has been crazy! Lots of hailstorms and even rain mixed with snow. Even some "sticking" or whatever you call it when you wake inRead more
