Life is Good


1. The move is not done.
2. I know. We are doing the best we can.
3. Maria, Max and Natalie have been really, really sick.
4. No fair. Right?
5. Life goes on, and it really is good.
6. If I resist the urge to ramble on, if I do not elaborate about how we have passed the last week, I may actually have time to publish a peek at the good life we have been enjoying...


Nothing makes our new home better than having visitors to share it with. So when Dominic and Marissa brought their mommy and daddy to hang out, we could not have been happier. Life is good.


Betty could not have been happier, and not just because Alison hugged her and Marissa fed her pumpkin bread... Life is good.


Brilliant cousin Julie actually got a lot of us to meet at the park. Quite a feat, and quite fun.


Marissa Rose... I am sighing. She is adorable and she is my brother's baby, which is just so sweet and strange and wonderful, because... because my brother is sweet and wonderful and strange... ? Okay. Yeah. He's hilarious and strange. I don't know what I am saying. I just love that they came to see us. I wish we lived closer, so I could harass him more regularly.


She did let me hold her once. Briefly. Sigh.

Do you know how hard it is to not write long, rambling notes on my deep thoughts and profound musings? To not go on and on about how much I miss my brothers and their beautiful families, and big gatherings and hanging out... if I were not pressed for time this would be a wordy, wordy post.

What time is it anyway?
GAH!
Mercy.
Help!
Must be somewhere else, doing other things. Right now!
Life is cRazY. But I tell ya, it's good too.

  1. We have had the really sick here too. But pumpkin bread...that just might make it ok. I'm off to the cook book.

  3. Of course I understand how you might be a wee bit distracted with these adorable kids around! Sorry your own are under the weather. Moving can't go on forever, though, so sooner or later, IT WILL END! And we'll all rejoice with you.

  4. It's good to hear from you! Sorry you've been sick. Just think... It's your house and once you're finished moving you don't have to move again!

  5. It's going to happen, it's going to happen....just keep repeating that and magically everything will just fall into place and you will be ensconced in your wonderful new home...okay, maybe it won't be that easy, but you'll get there.

    So sorry the children have been sick...hope they're on the mend and that you don't get it as well.

    Your niece is so beautiful...she has such soulful eyes...and she looks a LOT like Maria, don't you think?
