39 And Doing Fine…

Family At Margaritaville

As has become my tradition (at least since my 35th birthday) I wanted to take a few minutes to sit down with my computer and put some thoughts together. If you’re interested at all, you can look back at the last couple of years worth of babbling: Thoughts At 35 Thoughts At 36 Thoughts At 37 38 And Counting (My Blessings) So, I’m another year older and I suppose another year wiser. I’m certainly another … Continue reading

38 And Counting (My Blessings)

Family - Tami

I’m sitting here at Panera on a Saturday morning as is my normal routine, working on stuff for clients, catching up on email, etc. What’s a little abnormal is that it’s my 38th birthday.  And while I’ve got a HUGE list of stuff to get done, I’ve got to take a minute to put some thoughts down here on the blog. I started this “tradition” when I turned 35 and I’ve continued it with Thoughts At … Continue reading

Thoughts At 37

Family On Marco Island

Not sure how it happened, but we’re through July and as I flip the calendar I realize it’s once again August 2nd, and I’ve turned another year older.  Sadly… the immortality pill hasn’t been discovered in this past year :).  I’m absolutely floored by the number of folks that have taken time out of their day to drop me a note on Facebook, Twitter, text, etc. to wish me a happy birthday – thanks you … Continue reading

Thoughts At 36

G's Pre-K Graduation

Another year has passed and as the calendar flips to August 2nd I’m reminded that no matter what I tell myself, I’m not immortal.  Today’s my 36th birthday.  I’m once again blown away at the number of people that have gone out of their way today on Facebook, Twitter and in person to wish me a happy birthday… thank you all!  Last year, I wrote this post reflecting on my 35th birthday and I’ve realized … Continue reading

Yep… This Kid Is Cool

C Sleeping

So last night, we finally had C-Man’s birthday party (we’d celebrated on his actual birthday when we were on vacation in Florida back in March).  I was going through the hard drive this AM and realized that I’ve got quite a few AWESOME pics of the big man so I just had to share them!  It’s been FAR too long since I’ve done a C-centric post! As I mentioned, we took our yearly trip to … Continue reading

Thoughts At 35

35th Birthday (3)

Today’s my 35th birthday.  As folks tend to do on these “milestone” birthdays I find myself being a bit introspective today.  I’ve been completely overwhelmed by the well wishes by my family, friends and co-workers.  Fair warning… this is going to get a bit sappy. I’m 35 today… she’s 35 tomorrow.  I’ve often said that I was put on this Earth one day before her cause I knew she was coming.  She keeps me in … Continue reading

A Busy 4th Of July Weekend

Watching The Fireworks

Holiday weekends are great and this past one was no exception.  We were jam packed starting on Friday night when we got together to celebrate Gramp’s birthday (pics forthcoming).  As you can tell from the photo here the kids really enjoyed their weekend and for once we were able to tire them out (3 nights in a row out WAY past their bedtime will do that I suppose). Saturday was “get away day” as we … Continue reading

Top 10 From The First 5

G At Age 5

Today’s the G-man’s 5th birthday!  The kid simply doesn’t sleep these days so even though he went to bed at near 10:00 PM last night, he was up this AM at around 6:30.  I figured I’d cut him some slack this morning cause hell… it’s his birthday!  As it’s his 5th birthday, today also happens to be the anniversary of our first day as parents.  To that end, I decided to put this quick list … Continue reading

Getting The Most Out Of An Unconventional Weekend

G & C Munching On Some Ice Cream

It’s Monday morning and damn if we didn’t just have a great weekend – though a little on the weird side.  At this point I’m a little sunburned and a little chafed (damn you protective webbing on the swimsuit… damn you to hell!!!) but man was it fun. Friday: After work and dinner on Friday night, we needed to take Mom’s truck to the Nissan dealership so they could work on it Saturday morning.  After … Continue reading
