Thursday Thoughts…

Posted by Sandra on July 24, 2008

Well, my sister in law was taken to the hospital last night.  My brother is not doing well.  Carol’s cancer is in her brain and is causing swelling.  It’s very possible she’ll never go home again.  All they can do is make her comfortable.  I cringe every time the phone rings today. 

Sigh.  Okay, on to cheerier things.  Ayla thoroughly enjoyed my bean soup yesterday.  I’m glad there’s at least one other person here that will eat it, no one else does!  Daddy also made some great steaks over the weekend, and Ayla mastered those now too.  I think now there’s nothing that she hasn’t enjoyed.  This is wonderful!  I wonder why some people go through so much trouble and thought to feed their baby – it’s frankly one of the easiest things in parenting.  Make dinner, feed them.  No steaming/baking/ pureeing/freezing/thawing/feeding.  Eh, whatever.  Right now there’s so many more important things in life to debate, more power to those that have the time to do all those steps.  I like my two-steps! 😀

Autumn is having a blast with Justus’ old LeapPad.  I didn’t even know this thing still worked!  It has reading, math, songs, and more, and she’s really quite adept at using it.  She especially enjoys singing along with Mother Goose’s nursery rhymes.

Two more “sleeps” (as we explain to Autumn) until my boys come home.  I’m so anxious I can’t stand it.  I hope they call today to solidify the plans.  I guess Jim’s wife is flying them into Boston, and she’s going on to Arizona from there, leaving the boys to fly on their own to Columbus.  How exciting for them!  They’ll have the flight attendants wrapped around their fingers, I’m sure.  We haven’t thought much about what special “welcome home” thing we’re going to do – Carol’s situation throws a bit of a shadow over the celebration, we just can’t make solid plans until closer to the time they get here.

Hmm… I found a fun fun site yesterday while playing around – – it’s amateur and professional artists manipulating photographs – sooo much fun to browse – take a look!

Okay, I think that’s my rants for today.  Not too ranting, I know. 😀
