Brain Dump

My bloggy friends really know how to lay on the guilt trip about not blogging!

And my mom too.

I was chatting with CrazedParent -- she was worried because I've been quiet lately. She said, "Blog about the bloggy funk."

In truth, I could be blogging about stuff... I could be out there reading all your blogs... but I'm being selfish.

But, since I haven't blogged about much, here's my brain dump....

Rich officially starts his new job on Monday. I know he's anxious to start that and begin learning some new things. He's started going in to the office every day so that's taken us all a bit of time to get used to. The boys still open up the basement door when they get home because they have to "tell Daddy something."

It's good for him though to get out of the house and get some interaction with people other than Josh, Sam and me. You know?

Josh's birthday is on Sunday. He'll be 8! EIGHT! I can hardly believe it. We're not having a party this year. He wanted to invite a friend over for a sleep over so we're letting him do that.

We're also getting a "family" present - we pooled all the money that granparents, aunts, uncles and friends had given us for birthdays and got a PlayStation3. So we'll be getting that, and Josh is getting GuitarHero and a few other games, some BlueRay DVD's and a few books.

I'll be sure to post pictures of the GuitarHero next week. I'm quite excited to try it out actually!

Sam is doing well too. He had a renal ultrasound yesterday. The doctor's office just called to say all is good. I thought maybe this was the last one from the way she was talking at his last apointment, but she wants another renal ultrasound in two years. But his right kidney is all gone now (that was the bad one) and the left kidney is very big (all good).

That's about all the news here for the moment. Sam and I are about to make playdough for his class. It's my turn to make it. If you want the recipe, let me know.


  1. I so get the not wanting to blog, I feel guilty if I don't lol. Crazy I know. Guess you know you are loved when people are searching you out, lol

  2. I go through phases too where I just feel funky. I am kind of in one now..... Glad you are OK otherwise.

  3. See how easy that was :) Blog funk lifted.

  4. We have talked about GuitarHero lately.

    Can't wait to see the pics!!

  5. Wow, 8 already? Time sure does fly by quickly!

    It's funny, I didn't think I would like Guitar Hero until I tried it. Get ready to be addicted to it!

    That's great news about Sam's kidney! I didn't know that the bad one would disappear - that may be what happened to my great aunt. She found out later in life (while in her 80's) that she only had 1 kidney. She lived a very long and fruitful life with just one. :)


Yay! Comments! Thanks for letting me know you were here!
