I'll Show You Mine....

Summer 1995
Nathan broke his arm first...then his foot. Did that stop
me from sending him to day camp?  I think not!

Frankly, I don't think the cast and boot slowed him down at all.
So....why am I sharing pictures of Nathan from sixteen years ago?  Kaith called me up this morning with the sad news that along with his broken wrist (from one week ago) he now has broken a bone in his foot.  He sounded pretty sad and pathetic, but I think it cheered him up some to know that his Uncle Nathan did almost exactly the same thing when he was only a year or two older than Kaith is now.

Dear Kaith,
Get well soon, and try not to break anything else.
p.s. make sure your mom or dad take a picture of you!

A little help here?

New Year's at our house is often accompanied by the pitter patter of moving furniture.  This year was no different. I was able to coerce Andrew and Nathan into doing the bulk of the heavy lifting (thank you, boys!).  That's fine and all, but I'm left with all the little stuff - and there's a lot of little stuff. A lot.

We are moving Danny upstairs to what was my office - it's smaller than his old room, but closer to actual living, breathing human beings. Right about now I'm second guessing my decision to relocate all of my office, craft and sewing *ahem* junk. I'd like to be done - not have the Herculean task of sorting through  

To quote Douglas Adams, "Hercules, on seeing the room, would probably have returned half an hour later armed with a navigable river.

I could really use a small river to help clear out the last of the *ahem* junk from my ex-office.  Anyone?
