"Honey, do you think you could sew a few buttons on a couple of pair of pants."
"Sure, do you have the buttons?"
"Nope, don't know what happened to them."
"Are your pants beginning to pull a bit?"
"No, they're just getting old."

The family is getting to the point of the year where we start wishing for events to hurry up and arrive. Both boys will be celebrating birthdays soon, Valentine's Day, travel hockey tournaments and our annual trip to Seaside, Florida. We travel to Florida from New York while my brother and his wife travel from Dallas. It is a time for our family to bond with their aunt and uncle which they only see a few times a year. A couple of years ago we added a new family to our crew! They have a little girl that is three and just had a newborn in December! The boys are excited to play big brother to the older daughter.
It is a carefree time of the year that we are lucky to enjoy!

Lately,I have been fooling around with my camera. I got this glitzy camera for Christmas last year and still have no idea how to use it. I get a lot of blurry pictures but I think it is due to my eyesight. You know when you hit the big 4-0 the eyes start to go!
Had my youngest home sick today with strep throat so I got a lot done around the house. Bathrooms are clean and sparkly! Yuck... how I hate to clean the bathroom!
I read many different blogs and am always struck at how the person that is writing it can write something so profound. Yet, when I sit down to post I have nothing! Nadda! Not one thing of importance crosses my brain! I think that I think too much. I don't let the thoughts come as they should. Probably, because I had an English teacher way back in high school that told me that I couldn't write! Then I went to college and got an English professor that told me that I was a natural when it came to writing. Terrific, I thought! But then found out he said that to all the incoming freshman so he could sleep with them! Needless to say, I stayed away from writing until I became a teacher. I felt that if I was going to teach the importance of writing to my students that I needed to become a better writer.
I need to go knit. I am working on a baby sweater for a friend and need to finish it before the baby turns 10!
