50,000

Standard

My little journaling blog hit a benchmark.

We passed 50,000 hits sometime last night.

Wow!

Not as many as most….

But holy cow.

That’s a big number.

Thanks for visiting.

Things are about to get super interesting around here.

All three kids are teens.

Within a month….Kate starts high school, Danny is in his last year at middle school, and my baby Jack (who is almost as talk as I am) begins middle school.

There just isn’t enough wine……

Thanks for stopping by and catching up with us.

It’s so lovely to be home….

Standard

I think we were missed.

Kate cleaned the house yesterday.

Hugh snuck out of Denver University to meet us here.

Jack even let me hug him.

:).

But I think Mulligan was the most happy all his peeps were under one roof again. His whole body just wiggled.

We are having a quiet weekend here on Marrs.

D and I are both pretty wiped out. He slept last night. All the way to 7:30am.

🙂

He was a real trooper again today….

Standard

Probably because we both got more than a couple of hours sleep.

That, and he really likes Dr N…

But it wasn’t all poking and prodding….

And because we ended up with a day that felt more like spring than July…we continued our exploration of Cleveland.

Both of us are completely wiped out. And ready to come home…

For as good as he was during his appointment today, I sure paid for it in other ways….

Standard

Danny and I have had a day.

He was such a trooper during his eye exam…

But today his good behavior had a finite limit. And he hit it all during the appointment.

Stinker.

Completely typical I don’t have to listen to you mom because I am thirteen years old stinker.

While I wasn’t pulling all my behavior mod tricks out of my back pocket, we did manage to do a few things today…

But we are both pretty wiped out….

Good morning sunshine…..

The travel day yesterday did nothing to help alleviate the funky sleep pattern Danny is in….

Personally, I’m ready to skip “getting the worms” and totally sleep in for a change.

The good news?

At least in this time zone we wake crazy early rather than in the middle of the night back home….

Yawn.

And we are off…

Standard

Ok not really.

But we did manage to park the car, walk in, check bags, get through security, and now we are sitting at the gate waiting for our plane.

Danny is a great traveler.

🙂

And people are patient and helpful…especially when I give them specific instructions as how to best help us….
