Big Mommas

This is for my dear friends who are NOT UBER SKINNY MOMMAS~

First and I do mean first - you must read


I have to say~ The Uber Skinny comments came from a 12 year old that weighs 65 pounds with his shoes on! and I CAN FEEL HIS BONES!

Where's my royal blue tutu?

Thoughts About Change

Change~ Why is change appealing to me? I get bored easily. I need a change of scenery, a change of routine - always. I don't like leftovers for dinner.

I passed the seventh anniversary at my job this summer - the longest I have ever worked at one place before that was five years. My job duties drastically changed two years ago - I guess that counts as change.

We've lived in this house for 11 years, in Auburn for 14. A lifetime record for Tom, an adult life record for me. I lived in my parent's home for 19 years.

Because we have a very open floor plan, we've changed this house around many many times. One day the sun room is a playroom, one day a computer room, one day a dining room, now it is a "keeping room" complete with futon and television - oh my!

We're thinking about making a change, though, to another house - just maybe.

Next week - Tom and I will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We dated for six years prior to getting married - that's 26 years we've been together. Not much change associated with that - except that we make sure we're always engaged in something new in our life - always.

There's strong possibilities of big changes around the corner for both of us and we are both giddy with excitement. We're trying to stay grounded so that we're not grossly disappointed and unhappy if the results are not what we want. Our solution - figure out another change.
