What happened to our wonderful blog!?!?!
I just re-read our blogs and thought it very interesting that we captured so much of our lives at the beginning of 2006. Why did we stop? You two–get going! We need to keep blogging. What happened to us? Don’t you miss me?
Here is my contribution to the blog’s new beginnings.
A new school year has started—waaaayyy better than the last one! I need to take a blog to explain the changes to capstone and the changes in student attitudes that resulted. But I am not going to do that until I know you all are going to write in this thing and read what I have written.
I am teaching children’s literature this semester and loving it! I am reading Children of the Lamp, Kerr. You two–and Tim, too, if you join us on this blog–should read this, and we can share our ideas.
Announcement! I cleaned my garage. Two cars now park in the garage side-by-side. It almost seems obscene. I open the door when I walk downstairs just to see if the two cars are doing anything they are not suppose to be doing. But I think they are like Gary Paulsen’s cows and recognize I am coming and jump into a stand at attention pose because I haven’t even seen as much as a wheel out of place. I think Gary Paulsen is the guy who did the cow cartoons–if not, I’m sure you totally do not get what I just said.
Doug and I have recently been watching Prison Break. Excellent! You need to listen to me when I recommend these things. I know what I am talking about. We haven’t been to many movies lately. Zach is the only one with money. So we watch a lot of series. Gretel and I are doing the Gilmore Girls. They remind us of US. LOL
I know what bothers parents about their children at the upper teenage years. They have a higher standard of living than you do, yet you are paying for their car, insurance, schooling, etc. Actually, Zach has been better about things lately, but he and his friends do go to more movies and restaurants then Doug and I do—or than any of his friends’ parents do. Living below your supported child’s standard of living is something we share with all Zach’s friends’ parents.
I just realized the other day that Zach’s car is the same year as my van, and it has many thousands of miles less in mileage then my van! Gets better gas mileage, too.
I am presently living in fly city. Did someone just open a jar of stink and they all came rushing down from the mountains or something? I had a friend who climbed a 14er. When I asked her about it she said one of the things that impressed her the most about climbing that high was that when she got to the top, there were flies. Flies everywhere. She said it was above timberline–total shale and barren seeming–yet there were flies. I say, just one more reason not to climb a mountain that high. And this fly that is hovering around my head right now needs to lose its life, so I will be stopping this post right now.
Get busy on here! Tim wants to join us. How can we be excited about him joining our blog if we are not blogging?
