Thanks to my readers

Dear readers (most of whom--but not all!--I am related to),

Thanks for putting up with all my old (December) posts!  I like to get them recorded and online so that we can look back on them year after year.  :o)  I'll keep adding as I have time between schooling and taking care of the homestead.

In the meantime I'll try to post more current updates as well (like James' birthday post yesterday).

Thanks too for all the birthday wishes for James!  This is not a normal thing for us, to take a child on a trip just for his birthday.  :o)  James' birthday just happened to coincide with Marcus' business trip.  Marcus' group has lots of big-name corporate customers (he sells business-to-business HR software solutions), but he always makes time for Notre Dame!  He said the meeting with the Irish went well, so it was a successful trip all around.  It's nice to think that ND is paying us now, after so many years of taking our money in the form of tuition!  :o)

All your comments on my Mary Rose post (January 8th) were very much appreciated as well.  I hadn't seen the photos of that day in a long time, but I felt it was time for me to see them now.  I miss little gal and I dream of who she was to be…but it was not to be.  Thinking of her brings tears to my eyes so I try not to do it too much, or at least not dwell on it too much, but it was good for me to do in on her angelversary.  

Anyway--thanks for reading!!  Stay tuned for more posts about our crazy life….


  1. I love reading your posts but cannot imagine how you manage to post them.

  2. I do the same thing--I think it's better to blog late than never! Also it's your family journal, so you don't want to miss out on stuff.
