Happy Friday

Last night I saw Annecia off to prom.  I can’t believe she’s graduating from high school next week!  It seems like only yesterday I was poking her in her sleep so she would cry and I could hold her.  Technically, Necia is my cousin but I think of her as my baby sister.  I couldn’t … More Happy Friday

A Happy Medium

As previously mentioned I’m a “recovering” television addict.  I use the word lightly because I’ve probably been off the wagon more than on in the last couple years.  This weekend it was all about Once Upon A Time and M*A*S*H.  The shows are polar opposites and I suppose that’s fitting because most of my interests … More A Happy Medium

SVU: Detroit Edition

I have a lot of residual guilt from being rough (often times mean) to B while we were growing up.  I didn’t do it on purpose but it happened and I know that it strained our relationship.  Thankfully, things have really improved over the past year and with her moving back home in the spring … More SVU: Detroit Edition

And One More Thing…

I decided I wasn’t busy enough applying for jobs, finishing the International Literary Project, plugging into my Roosevelt research again, starting a new workout program and practicing Spanish, SO I decided to learn to play the piano. Since my last attempt to learn a skill most children know failed I decided to keep this under … More And One More Thing…

I had a nice busy weekend.   Friday: I went to Milford after work to have dinner with Cara.  It was a great visit and she made a “vintage” meal.  Shrimp Alfredo is our signature dish.  She made it for me when I visited her at her apartment (before I moved upstairs) and it introduced … More Weekend Update

Girl Times

This weekend was quite productive and fun!  I finished getting the house back in order post-kid party.  Hung out with Mom on Friday and we Skyped with B.  It’s so good to have that technology and SEE B.  She looks really good and happy – too good and happy really…. I don’t think she’s ever … More Girl Times

Happy New Year!

Danny said he wanted to play BSG everyday during Christmas break and he darn near got his wish.  We played nearly everyday!!!  Then we ended up playing this xBox game Nick introduced us to call Peggle.  I’ve basically spent the past week playing games.   We invited Brett, Lindsey and their girls over to Mom’s … More Happy New Year!

Weekend Round Up

Saturday night we finally saw the Hakala’s again.  Unfortunately, babies are suppose to sleep at night so I didn’t get any cuddle time with Gwen.  Bummer.  I did get to sneak a peak at her and she’s a cutie.  So tiny.   Since I didn’t have a baby to occupy myself I made Lindsey and … More Weekend Round Up
