Made it Around the Neighborhood

Yes, I know, it’s been forever since I’ve done this again. I’ve taken notes though, so maybe one day I’ll get you caught up. There is a lot that has happened, but since I do plan to fill it all in, if you’re reading this at some future date and I’ve done like I plan, this preamble will just sound like rambling. I am going to try to make these quicker though. I think that’s part of the reason I put off doing them. Was listening to Spotify today and Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars came on. Took me back to when Milly was itty bitty. Milly got up at 9 again today. I was already downstairs …

Work All Day

It rained a lot this morning.  The satellite actually went out briefly, which upset me because while it was raining pretty hard, it wasn’t that hard.  Hoping it was a fluke. I was very busy from the time I got up until the time I quit working around 6.  I was a bit worn out. Amanda’s knee wasn’t bothering her as much as it was yesterday, but it still hurt her.  Despite that, she took Milly out to get frozen yogurt at Brrr Berry with Monique, Rosa and Emil and the Warkentiens, though I don’t think Nick was there.  Milly and Rosa posed for some pictures.  This one was the best.  Milly almost looks like a grown girl in it. Amanda …

Wings Contest Runner-up

I suppose it’s one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. There was a leaders meeting at Port City Community Church tonight, and before it got started Paul Klouse came around and asked if Amanda or I would volunteer for a hot wing eating competition.  I said I didn’t even really like wings all that much and I didn’t like hot food, but Amanda did so she reluctantly agreed. When they were asking for volunteers Amanda raised her hand.  I pointed her out in order to make sure she’d be seen, but the person on stage took it as me volunteering her, so I got called up too.  Given what I already said, I didn’t think I’d do well. The …

Learning Moves

Today wasn’t overly eventful. I stayed busy, Milly behaved throughout the day, Amanda went to work and came home then took Milly to dance class. Milly did get her outfit for her recital which is coming up in June.  Amanda told her she could put it on for just a minute to show it to me, so she put it on and did a few of her moves.  It’s cool that she’s actually learning and remembering them.  A few days ago she was even humming some classical music.  I can’t remember which song it was now, but I think it might have been from dance.  I don’t know where else she’d have heard it.  Oh, Little Einsteins perhaps. Anyway, after …
