I have lived in Texas almost 26 years, and I have seen lots of storms in that time. Snow, hail, rain, thunder, etc., and all the various clouds that go along with them with all the various shades of purple, green and everything in between. But I have never seen anything like this... looks kind of like an upside down ocean or something. Anyway, these clouds were really cool so I took a picture.
Let me assure you that the storm that followed was not so cool. :)
When we moved in our house, my mom sent over 9 boxes of my 'memories'. From babyhood to college, anything that I wanted to keep was fair game and was tossed in a box. A couple years ago, I got the 9 down to 7. With the great closet cleanout, I vowed to go through them and whittle it down from 7 to 3 or 4.
What could I possibly have saved, you ask? Every card ever received (I still do this for us and our kids); impressions of my teeth pre-braces; my 2 year molars that were extracted prior to said braces; notes from middle school, high school, and college; my childhood "art"; bookmarks; key chains; photos; medals; t-shirts; certificates; ticket stubs; and a very worn 'talking' teddy with disputed ownership.
The box count is now 4, and I have really enjoyed the stroll down memory lane over the last few weeks. Thank you, Mom, for letting me keep all my 'treasures'! Love you!
Zachary decided to leave Lovey at home this morning. I thought, OK, guess I'll be driving home really fast to get it after I drop him off at school. He did great, though, and didn't ask for it once. My baby is growing up!
Sophie has been teething forever. Seriously, months and months. But today, during rest, out popped her tooth. Zachary was the first person I told and then he felt it (very carefully with the help of mommy). Auntie called so we told her next and then we saw Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa M for dinner. It's on the bottom, but I can't tell if it's the right or left because she doesn't show it yet when she's smiling. Hopefully the next ones won't hurt her so much. She had been on a solid food strike for the last couple of days b/c it hurt so bad. :(
