Cute Rachel comment




OK, since everyone is now digital scrapbooking and I still haven't begun scrapbooking the regular way (I plan on doing that with our 1/2 marathon races to see if I like it or not--otherwise, for now I'm sticking to the tried and true pix in albums concept from my generation) I thought I would do a quick Rachel update. We were reading a story this morning--she picked "The First Christmas" and there was a pix of Joseph, Mary and Jesus. I asked her to point out the baby and she pointed to Baby Jesus. I asked her to point out the Mommy and she pointed to me. BRILLIANT, don't you think? Anyway, here are a couple cute recent pix. I also have to mention that I don't know how Emily does it. She's raising three boys, currently by herself, keeps her blog current AND has to pack for a move, the latter of which I know firsthand is a drag--and just wait until the unpacking. At any rate, I'm convinced she's hopped up on prescription drugs and gets virtually no sleep. Kudos to you, Emily! Speaking of unpacking, I need to stop procrastinating and get back to it. It's a bummer when you think, "I think I'll grill hamburgers tonight" and then don't know where the Foreman grill is, or "Let's play ping pong" only to wonder where those darn paddles are. And we've got so many home improvement projects to do it boggles the mind. OK--enough venting for now. Stay tuned--the next blog entry will no doubt be in December (but isn't it fun when you check for the thousandth time and then find something??!).

Nobody comment on Karen's blog for at least a month, then she'll know what it's like. Oh wait... doh! Speaking of mahburgers and ping pongs, when are you going to have everyone over, eh? Oh, and air hockey too.

Way to go Karen! I'm so proud of you for updating your blog! Yipee! Once you get all moved in and get a decent computer with decent RAM and hard drive space, we'll have to get you in on the digital world of scrapbooking. ...everyone's doing it!

So you finally went and did it! I thought for sure that it wouldn't get updated for awhile still. But everyone needs a break from unpacking. I need to get busy on organizing the garage....

Cute pics! And I wish I was on some prescription meds... I heard there's a black market for Ritalin for moms... that it will wire you for the day! I secretly really want to be on it... unfortunately, I know better...
I'm so glad you updated! It makes my day. Oh, and I couldn't access the pictures you e-mailed me because it asked for your login info, which I didn't know...

998.....999...1000 Whoa! Look at that! It worked. I've been wondering if you got into your new place. Congratulations and the best of luck getting it all pulled together. Watching you, em, and my sister in the whole moving scenario makes me want to just stay put for a while. Yikes! Kisses to Rachel...she's darling!
