    Happy 2022!

    Goodness, it’s been almost 3 years (I believe?) since I sat here to visit with you.. inexcusable! Truth be told, I’ve really missed writing to you; things in my life have been so constantly changing that it’s hard for me to settle down and summarize how a day or moment went because it is suddenly and abruptly the next day…

She decided to go skydiving with a friend of hers, which completely surprised me, as my Bean has never been quite the adrenaline-junkie her dad and Bre have been.

    Nice Girls

    Last week Sophie was telling me how she and a schoolmate got into an argument, and on the playground, the schoolmate stuck her tongue out at Sophie… "I can't believe she did that!" Sophie said. I felt badly for Sophie, and with a sympathetic tone, I asked, "What did you do when she did that?" "I called her an oompa-loompa,"…

    Lisa

    I wrote the post below ("Fridays with Bre") yesterday morning and auto-scheduled it to publish today. But I felt it necessary to post again this morning, and ask each of you to pray for Lisa Roswell and her family. I am heartbroken. (February 28, 2011) Multiple rescue agencies are currently searching the Huron River for Lisa Roswell, 51, of North…

    Finishes, Freaks, and a Freebie

    It occured to me yesterday after I posted this photo…   …that one of the sisters looks a little like this: I loved Beaker when I was growing up. And then there's this character, who reminds me of pretty much any Muppet. He got a little bummed that Breanna's muscles are almost as big as his are…   I think…
