Something to blog about...


Hmmm. I'm at a loss this time. I want it to be something interesting enough to READ, but my life is so mundane lately.


Molly had 2 birthday parties this weekend. She's now at the age where you "Stop, Drop and Run". I've discovered this means new-found freedom! Each day I had 2 (count 'em - TWO) hours to do whatever I wanted to. With no kids. And nothing really to do. SO, I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond to get my K-cups for my morning tea. Then, I went to Sam's to return some shorts I had gotten for Mikey. They were way too big. I strolled around and tasted some foods, and got a fantastic recipe for beans I'll make for the Blue/White game next weekend. I went to Barnes and Noble to spend my Christmas gift cards from my kids at school. I ran to McDonald's to get a sweet tea and a fry (one of my downfalls). Then I went back to get Molly, feeling refreshed and happy.

Sunday was reserved for Michael's and Wegman's, both with no kids. Ah...the joy of birthday parties.


Next weekend I won't have nothing to do because it is during the Annual Autism Walk here at PSU. I'd rather do the walk than have nothing to do, and it's for a great cause. Parker, who I taught last year, has autism. I looked at a kids' book at Barnes and Noble about a friend with autism, but I didn't want to buy it. I really don't think Mikey and Molly REALIZE he has autism. He's just Parker. So, why introduce it until they notice? It'll wait...

Oh, speaking of autism. Chris, Mikey and Molly were the picture on the front of the flyer this year! It was of Chris and the kids in the wagon. It made us laugh. The funniest part? The local PBS station did a show on Parker to air last weekend for Autism Month. After the interview they were talking about how wonderful the walk was, and how it was for a good cause to "help families like these". And THEN, they showed the picture of Chris, Mikey and Molly!!!

I wonder who they thought had autism in that picture. I'll have to show them this year that they have been miraculously cured! Is that spelled right? I can't figure out how to do spell-check on this thing.


Now, for a picture. This is Molly when we lived in Colorado Springs, and is our screen saver right now. I love it!

Mommy's day out...2 days in a row! How lucky are you? I can't believe that picture of Molly -- she looks so much older now! Still a cutie, though!

Jonathan's Mommy said...

Wow! I can't wait until Jonathan is old enough for that! Sounds like you spent your free time much as I would have done!

Hurray for free time!! I just had a couple of hours to myself tonight as well. Glad you had that time to yourself!

Molly is a beauty!!!!

Denise said...

TWO HOURS sounds like pure bliss!!!
My parents have a Wegman's by their house...we don't have one here....but I love it! Very relaxing to get a cup of coffee and walk around! Glad you had fun!

Free time! That is awesome.

I hope the walk goes well for everyone.

What a cutie Molly is. Love her piggy tails.

Ahhh...now that's the little Molly I remember. She won't have ANY idea who I am by the time I see you guys again! By the way - when are you guys going to be out here and what's your plan? I want to plan a trip up to Seattle to see a good friend, so I want to make sure I don't go at the same time as when you're here.
