Wow, I cant even believe I haven't written anything in over a year. I'm not a person that is given to speechlessness, so I must catch up. Holy cow, what has happened in the last year? My mustache is getting thicker and my feet are getting bigger. There's only a few more shoes sizes left, I hope this stops soon. I guess I can keep plucking my mustache, what a price to pay for a smooth lip.
In the last year, we have gained 2 hamsters, 1 bunny and are still loving our nearly 13 yr. old lab. As much as he needs, he still warms my heart and brings me back to a place in my mind when we were both a little younger and our joints moved a little freer. We said goodbye to our dear friend, Birdman after having him in our family for over 19 years. He was our feisty Moluccan Cockatoo with beautiful head feathers and a feather picked body. He was our bargain pet, due to his nervous nature. Where most cockatoos can be sold for lots of money, ours, including his cage was only $50. He loved big daddy more than anyone else and was the most loving and calm when around the man he loved. (sounds like a serious love story, doesnt it?)
The kids are getting huge and keep me on the edge of my seat on any given day. We are still homeschooling, 5 yrs. in the making. Being with the kids is not always Little House on the Prairie, as a matter of fact somedays its more like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. But, its pretty cool when I can get through math without tears....(talking about myself here). Big Daddy......what can I say?......I love this guy with my entire being (yeah, I know....who likes love stories on public posts) I guess if I had a way to describe us...I would maybe say George Burns and Gracie Allen ( thats an overexaggeration, but, we do like to have fun). We met at 17 and are sharing 40 something this year.
I never did get my basement organized...but it is always in the back of my mind, at least I havent lost complete sight of my goal....maybe when the kids are a little older I'll realize my lofty dream :)
