It's been awhile........
But we're still here.
The spring has come and gone. The kids are growing like weeds. Since a year ago this spring, Sam has grown 9 inches and gained 60 pounds. My little boy who I used to hold and rock for hours on end is now 5 feet 9 inches tall.
Sadie has been growing as well.
She's now close to 100 pounds. What happened to that little puppy?
We have a new member of the zoo..... His name is Joe. Joe Black Shadow. He needs a new home. He doesn't like sharing the zoo with the other cats and dogs and as a result displays some "displaced aggression." Would you like to take him home with you?
Grandma's still tucked back in the Maine Woods. Muncie is still on the look out for fresh ankles, Victoria is no longer able to jump the fence (thanks to the six foot tall one we were forced to put up...too many unplanned dates with the poodle next door).
The cats murdered my laptop a month or so ago (yes, murder it was. They pushed it off onto the floor....all my pictures, documents, school plans....) I felt as if I had lost my best friend. But you know what? It's been kind of nice not spending so much time on the computer. I can go for long walks with the kids. I can read to them for hours on end (we're in the middle of the Hobbit currently). It's been nice.
But I had a request I couldn't refuse. My cousin. She requested I keep posting. She doesn't live far, but our paths don't cross like they should. We need more memories together. We'll make that happen this summer. So, Elaine...this post is for you. And just know....tomorrow is today, and I am thinking of you today.
