Happy 7 Years of Blogging!

Well, 7 years of having a blog anyway since I haven’t been blogging much these days.  It sure says something when I log on for the first time since June and the entire site and format looks different.

The official anniversary date of my actual post isn’t until 8/28, but I figure I would write this when I think of it. Versus you know, missing the actual date by another 2 months since I seem to be in a post once in every two month mode.

Hobbies are funny things.  Interest comes, then an almost obsession, and then it fades away.  This has happened quite often in my life so I’m not surprised.  I’m more surprised by how long I kept up with blogging.  I am sad though because my waning interest is coinciding with a time when I should be blogging like crazy.  Recording all the cute little moments of Peanut just like I did for Soso.  All the things that are forgotten all too soon of a really short period in her and our lives.

I keep telling myself to blog more.  I do.  Yet, obviously I haven’t done it and I at a loss as to how to revive my flagging interest.

In any case, happy 7 years of on and off blogging.



Married for 13 Years!

D and I have been married for 13 years!  I was hoping to find a more recent photo of us to post here, but I was too tired to look for them on the computer.

So, here’s a photo from Soso’s Holy Communion last year… yeah, that’s how far back I had to go on my Flickr account for a photo of the two of us. And even then, it’s not just the two of us! So sad…


I just realized our anniversary celebration is always going to be preempted by Punk’s birthday. Perhaps we’ll get to go for dinner on our 15th… oh yeah, that’s when she’ll turn the big FIVE. And our 20th will be her 10th birthday. Oh, we’re just screwed, aren’t we?

Happy 12th Anniversary

Dearest D,

There was no fancy dinner, in fact it was a hurried meal of left-over ravioli from the other night.  We spent most of the day apart, me taking care of Peanut and you getting some much needed work.  The time we did spend were doing ordinary Sunday tasks like attending Mass, grocery shopping and returning some items to various stores.  Still, I wouldn’t want to do ( or not do) any of these without you.

Happy 12 years of marriage!
