Be Very Careful....

of the traditions you unknowingly begin. Write one sappy birthday blog and you'd best settle in for months of sappiness. ::snort:: Seriously, I didn't plan to write public tributes for each person - but I'm glad it's a new tradition. I have stacks of journals here - one for each family member - and I'm supposed to be filling them. It's weighed on me each year that they weren't filling up....and so maybe it's the accountability of this that is helping me DO IT - so there you have it. Embrace your inner sap. ::snort:: Yes, we are gearing up for a birthday tomorrow.

Dad Earl update - Be sure to check the text box at the top of the blog for updates...but this is what I know as of now. Mike reached CA this afternoon. He called to say that Dad Earl is out of the hospital. Mike and I've not been able to talk beyond that. I know they are arranging home health care of some sort.

In other news, Jared and I have been in the midst of making tough (for us) decisions. I think we've come through the process. I'll write more one of these days.

Zander learned a lesson today.....and it deserves its own blog... but I may forget by morning if I don't write it now. The bottom line: "Mom, I'm glad that God is like you with a magic eraser for my messes." That'll preach.

My little camera isn't working. The Nikon needed's taken all day so I figure I've done something wrong. No photos today...but given the day Zander had he's happy to have no photos. ::snort::

I'm flat out exhausted and going to bed.

Choosing Joy!
