Catching Up

I have oodles to catch up on.  Here goes:

  • School is still going well.  Actually I'm loving it.  I'm a big nerd though.  I'm one of those people that likes to study.
  • I had a BDay on Tuesday.  I'll proudly claim that I'm 28.  It seems like a perfect age.  Actually I've felt that way for the last 5 years or so.  I don't mind getting older, it's just part of life.  It's also a great excuse for new Coach bags.  
  • We now have a porch swing.  It's absolutely wonderful.  I love southern summers and what better way to enjoy them than from the comfort of a beautifully stained(black if you must know) wooden swing.
  • We're going to dinner with Jesse(my brother) and Amy(SIL) tomorrow evening.  That's always a lot of fun.  Somehow we will manage to confuse the wait staff and be entirely too loud.  I'm not sure how this always happens but it does.
  • Our family has expanded by the quantity of 2.  That's right we have 2 new goldfish.  Clayton was given a fishbowl by his Tram.  And you can't have a fishbowl without fish.  So we loaded up the bowl with goldfish.  Clayton wanted to name them "Truck" and "Trailer".  We haven't decided just yet.
  • A wonderful benefactor gave me a wonderful surprise today.  I'm so very excited.  I've used it all evening.  (How was that for vague!).  Thank you!
It's been a great week.

So I have a question for ya'll.  Where does the blog go from here?  I know most of my readers out there in cyberland happened upon the blog when we first found about Johanna and Trisomy 18.  And for the better part of a year the blog has been centered around her story.  But I'm starting to feel a shift in the direction of topics on the blog.  I guess I'm basically asking do ya'll like reading random crazy things about other people's lives like I do?  Just wondering.

I do! While the bulk of the blogs I follow are centered around Down syndrome, I follow a lot that discuss decorating, family life, shopping, cooking etc. So I'll still read yours of course!

I enjoy reading about other ppl's lives. I also enjoy reading finding a new recipe now & again or finding craft ideas. It's fun to get ideas for family fun or spiritual uplifting from other ppl. Just write about your life or about a scripture that spoke to your heart...or whatever. It's your blog and your readers will still read. :o)

I love reading about your life. I feel like I've gotten to know you so well over the last year or so, that I just want to keep up with what you are doing, and how you are doing, etc.
Happy Birthday btw!! I'm so glad you had a great week! :)
