A Little Light

The household has been infested for several days now. It strikes suddenly and with no warning. I was the first casualty, Andy followed three days later and then poor baby girl got her portion as well. 
We're resting, drinking orange juice and just generally snuggling the day away while all three of us cough, sniffle and wheeze. At least the sun is shining.

A Quick Peek

I'm trying valiantly to get a handle on all of the video I have stored up of my kiddo. If you thought the walking was cute, just take a gander at this mini.

If you're a grandparent or great aunt, you'll want to watch the whole 2 1/2 minutes as well.

And just because it's sweet to see teeny babies talking...I guess I'm reminiscing. In no time, she'll be heading off to school.

Five Seasons

Some people say that in Michigan we really only have two seasons, Winter and Construction. As true as this oft may be, I want to put a name in the suggestion box for a fifth registered season. I call it Waiting. Another working title could be Almost There.

Spring always comes eventually. It's just that during the Waiting season, Winter tends to come and go. Spring seems to ebb and flow around here. One day we're teased and tempted by high temps and actual, bright Spring sunshine, and the next Winter snatches it all away and throws cold and snow back in our faces.

I'm looking forward to 'soon' being 'now'.
