Received my desk belongings via two FedEx boxes last night. Now, I can move forward!
I have the pictures to place on my new whereabouts. Retrieved the $85.00 worth of cub scout candy I was selling for Knox.
A sense of completion for me. So, the sun does come up…again and again and again.
These last few days have allowed me to not only eat with my family but to cook for them.
I am the cook in our house and making things days in advance was going over well. Now it’s right out of the oven and to the plate. Good times if your hungry at our house. The kids will be home right after school today, no after school program. I feel funny about that. I know they like the chance to play with some friends at school but these days it’s about saving $$.
The grocery list includes only store brand. The financial concerns have set in.
Having just refinanced the house we are very astute to the costs of our household.
I have had time to read all the blogs and websites…as well as the newspapers and help wanteds.
the usual Dblogs include: Amy’s Diabetemine and Allison’s Lemonade life and to peruse the Tu-Diabetes group discussions and the ADA site forums. I find myself trying to come up with a name for my own regular blog. I’ll let you in on it eventually. For now though writing here is good therapy.
Now we begin to prepare for harvest time. The leaves have started dropping. The colors of the trees have begun to change to brown, orange, red and mustard. And of course my Erica will be five in 11 days. Did I mention that she is the most beautiful girl in the world? She is! As are all your daughters to you. I am a details person and watching my two marvelous wonders grow allows me(and Jean) the chance to really see the past, present and future right now. The nice thing about blogging is the freedom to ramble loose thoughts that are streaming through our minds. /what an ideal way to express, ain’t it?
Watching the squirrels this morning I was reminded that all life has it’s ups and downs. I watched this one lil guy dig and dig and dig (into my mulch) but then there it was a gold mine! Five acorns buried deep into the mulch. You could feel the sense of pride that squirrel had. Erica has named them the Jonas brothers. So one of the Jobros had his day made with the find of a past buried treasure inside my mulch. Touche’ for him!
Soon the family of five squirrels headed back to the tree next door to stash the loot. As I watched them I thought that their lives may not be as exciting but man the parents are with the children all the time. No opportunity is ever lost, every miracle is witnessed. I wondered if mom and dad squirrel realized how lucky they were to be with their kids all day.
I will give you a much detailed explanation on the squirrels later but we know them all to well!
So, now as my mind wanders and I am typing loose thoughts I am reminded of the great pride that I have in the accomplishments, be it small or large, of my wife, my son and my daughter. I also took note that we are a nice family of four, live in a white house with a picket fence and have a nice backyard with a pool in it. We live a block from grammy’s house and 0.7 miles from school. Life is really pretty good these days.
