January 22, 1986


Twenty-three years ago, on January 22, 1986, at 4:32AM Pacific Coast Time, our little Girlbug was born! After 32 hours of hard labor I can tell you that she was well worth it. She is a precious prize. She was wonderful at each stage...even the challenging ones...and has turned into a very gifted, loving, competent woman.

Happy birthday, Sweetheart. We love you more than you will know..............until you have little ones of your own and then you will be awed by how much we love you.

Here are a few pictures......

January 2009

This first one is only to show how blue the sky was at the beach on was almost eerie!!

Time just flies......

My Marcia from NoDak emailed me and told me to get goin' on the postin' so here's new post. Thanks for the nudge and I'm glad to hear from you!

Saturday, Larry went fishing and Ian was at All State for choir, so I decided I'd take my little self to the beach. I'm in the middle of a 50-something-redefining life deal, and I knew the coast was the place for me. I threw some Jack Johnson into the CD player, drove over the mountains and had a wonderful time all by myself. I suppose that means I'm mature enough to do that sort of thing. How odd.....never think of myself as being a grownup yet.....anyway, I played at a scrapbook shop and made a fun make 'n take, walked along the beach, took some pictures, talked to God, and got a LOT of things straightened out in my head. I left home at 12:o1 and returned before dinner at about 5:14. It was revitalizing to say the least.

I've put some pictures above...I meant to put them below, but I can't figure out how to do that :{

Not much else goin' on around here except work, eat, sleep..should do less eating :) I'm interviewing for a position as an Autism Consultant in a very large school district. We'll see what happens. We really need medical benefits and a paycheck SOON!!!! I have two other offers in rehab facilities, but I think my heart really lies with the kids AND the school work calendar is quite enticing. This Spring I'll teach another course for University of Oregon so that will be fun, too.

That's about it for today. Thanks for reading. "Be careful out there," and have a wonderfully, happy day !!
