I am a breather.

And this whole not being able to breathe thing that has been going on lately just isn't working for me.

Being sick sucks.

Reflection on Today

If I had to pick the one day of the year when I think human nature is furthest from the spirit of Christmas, it would definitely be Black Friday... you know, the start of the Christmas season.

Happy Thanksgiving!

May your hearts and bellies be full today, as you take time to reflect upon what is really important.

In honor of a few flakes of snow today...

One of my favorite Shel Silverstein poems:

Squeals of Delight

Did you hear the screaming?

I gave JJ popcorn for the first time today.

It appears he liked it.

Aren't nursery rhymes sweet?

So I'm reading a book of Mother Goose nursery rhymes to JJ when I come across this:

Goosey Goosey Gander

Goosey Goosey Gander where shall I wander,
Upstairs, downstairs and in my lady's chamber
There I met an old man who wouldn't say his prayers,
I took him by the left leg and threw him down the stairs.

November 11

Today is many things:

* This is the second anniversary of the day JJ was due.

* This is the birthday of a good friend of mine.

* This is an important day to honor those who have served, and are serving, our country.

Did you thank a vet today?

Happy Birthday!

JJ is two today!

(Although I'm not quite sure how that happened, since he was just born last week.)

Bad Ideas

John and I watched the movie Fun With Dick and Jane tonight. That probably wasn't the brightest idea. I don't think it was meant to be an educational film.
